‘Lets go everywhere’ with the Modero Travel system by Koochi.
When it comes to working with brands, I always think very carefully if it’s a good match for us, and always check out all elements of the brand before hand. One brand we have worked with a couple of times now is Cosatto, and have always been very impressed with the quality and sustainability of the products. We tried out the Story cot bed back in 2015, and the Skippa-fix car seat a few months ago and have been so please with both. Since then we have been asked our thoughts on a new travel system by Koochi, the sister brand to the wonderful Cosatto.
What you get:
– Lightweight aluminium chassis
– SPF50+ extra long hood that swaps between seat & carrycot
– Suitable from birth carrycot
– Co-ordinating infant car seat (can be used with Koochi ISOFIX in-car base)
– Seat unit that can face either direction & multi-position recline
– Snug fleece-lined footmuff, chest & tummy pads
– K4 – 4 year guarantee
Key features for us:
I absolutely love the zipped compartment in the pushchair basket, it’s come in SO handy for me as I usually end up in such a stress not finding keys or change at the bottom of my change bag etc. I’ve also used this space for my cameras and lenses and it’s a safe place away from the baby stuff and snack bags!
I love any pushchair that has the option of popping the car seat straight onto the frame. I never had this with my previous children as the car seat wasn’t compatible and I never got round to buying the correct adapters!
As Didi was a bit bigger when being sent this set, the carrycot didn’t have much use but when we did try it out, she looked really comfortable taking a nap after a long family walk, with us not needing to disturb her by moving her into her cot, the padding is nice as is the adjustable hood. Newborns would definitely benefit from this element more so though.
The adjustable handle bar is a great element as my partner and I like to use this part differently, easy to change too with a simple click and manoeuvre.
On our recent holiday to Devon, we decided to put the bulk of our luggage in our top box, which meant putting the pushchair in the car. We do have a 7 seated car, but with 6 passengers it can feel like a squeeze with any extra stuff. With this in mind, we did find the detachable wheels handy as we could place the pushchair in three parts for the journey which freed up some space for little legs.
With previous pushchairs I’ve had, they didn’t have the handlebar safety strap so this is a great factor for us as it just gives us that extra piece of mind next to busy roads, and it can also be used for your toddler to hold onto as well when walking together (encouraging them not to run off more like*)
I love the little phrases discreetly written along the side of the frame, and the back of the seat saying ‘Lets go everywhere’, ‘adventures’ as these phrases are just so relevant really. Anywhere you go as a family is a potential adventure right?!
Things to lookout for:
If you’re not using an isofix base for the infant car seat, the clipping and secure part behind the car seat can be a bit tricky to put into place, once done though it is very sturdy.
The hood can sometimes get a bit bent when folding away into the car as its a harder material.
These pointers are very minimal as I really do think that overall, the design in itself is a winner for us. a very smooth and adaptable ride for our little lady. I usually prefer the more basic and neutral colours when choosing pushchairs but this one (java) is such a cheery theme and suits her personality very much.
We even converted it into a little beach bed for her – a little break from her getting so excited and eating mouthfuls of sand was definitely needed all round! Little Didi was fast asleep here after a busy day around the Dinosaur & Wildlife park in Combe Martin on our recent holiday to North Devon. We used the pushchair so much, along with our baby carrier and it really was a reliable piece of equipment which served our little lady well, especially with the helpful elements including the ease of use (lacking hands anyway with four little ones!) and also the fact that its super comfy and cosy with the thick cosytoe design when the weather got a bit colder.
You can purchase this pushchair directly from the website or on some of their retailers, it retails at £589.95.
Overall, we were very impressed with the sleek design of this product, the high standard of comfort for our little one, the ease of use with detachable parts and considering you get the whole package I think the price is quite fair. *As always, thank you to this wonderful brand for sending us this for the purpose of an honest review, all images are my own.
