Now as most of you know I have been selected as a Maxi-Cosi Loola reporter to put this pushchair through its paces! So after it arriving and managing to put it together it was now time to see how the Maxi-Cosi Loola faired with some real everyday use!
After getting back from our holiday on Saturday
we I tried to put off the washing for as long as possible by getting out to some parks that as of yet we had never visited.
Arnot Hill Park is only a few miles away yet we have driven past and never been. The park has some lovely green spaces, a pond and a play park so we headed off with the Loola in the boot to finally get Joshua in it.
Getting the pushchair in and out of the boot it must be noted it was not the lightest but with the extras and stability it is certainly something I could live with.
Secondly mounting of kerbs seemed to be easier than the old one. It seems that the whole thing has been rebalanced to redistribute the weight better, which is a massive plus from me!
The New Loola while undergoing its face lift has lost its double wheels and has been developed with a single wheel on the front. I did wonder if this in fact would affect the manoeuvrability of the pushchair but I have been very surprised as it seems it has improved it! Also for anyone that had the old version they will remember that while walking backwards with the Old Loola it was all most impossible but it’s certainly not a problem now with the new version….. should anyone want to actually walk backwards that is?!
So while at Arnot Hill park we negotiated concrete, cobbles and asphalt with no issues what so ever! pushing with the adjustable handle was great as normally being short at 5ft means I very often come across handles being way to high for me!
Not to waste the dry snap we
left the washing decided to see some Ducks at Markeaton Park as we had yet to visit here too.
We even got to use the extendable hood which is one of the features I love about this pushchair. I fear I may have lost my upper hand as main pusher too since Ollie (hubby) is loving the adjustable handle height too ….. bugger!
Something we did notice which we thought was a bonus, the height of the seat unit. While going over the bridge there were hundreds of ducks and geese underneath and Joshua could easily see over the top! all in all 2 lovely family trips out and the Loola is looking good.
Now I need to say our third location may not be the most exciting however for me I was thrilled with …. The Super Market!
I am not a natural-born shopper but in recent months I had given up with taking Joshua in his pushchair or even at all since he has developed an urge to grab things from shelves! Instead I have been an internet shopper which has been great but also I have missed the odd trip in to browse.
So we tootled off to our local Super Market! we easily adjusted the seat unit to parent facing and set off …….. Joshua was miffed in fact scratch that he was not happy!
Try as he might he could not get those items off the shelf!! *happy Mummy dance* so it seems Ollie will have to remove the bank cards from my possession as the odd shopping trip wouldn’t hurt and since its only once in a while I will need to make the most of it, Also with plenty of room in the boot it would be rude not too!!
