As a mum to 5 little ones I’ve “road tested” a few prams and pushchairs over the years, so when Mamas & Papas invited us to try out their Ocarro pushchair I jumped at the chance as Mamas & Papas is a brand I love and having had one of their prams before, I knew I was in for a treat, Tiggy too, so this is what we got up to…
An early start for a weekend but lots to do so our first port of call, some shopping and with Tiggy contained in the Ocarro’s pushchair this took a lot less time than had she been walking! The Ocarro manoeuvred the streets and shops with ease and with its wheels having both a “fixed” or “swivel” option we plumped for the “swivel” option and it glided around corners and through shops effortlessly. The Ocarro also has an easily accessible generous size basket beneath it so there was plenty of room for our shopping.
The obligatory coffee shop pit stop, shopping is hard work don’t ya know! Tiggy was keen here to try out the Ocarro for herself popping her dolly affectionately known as “Dodo” into the pushchair and taking her for a little spin, literally!
With coffee and cake done and dusted we headed to the Botanical Gardens as Tiggy has older brothers who’s homework this weekend was all about plants so what better place to go see some than at the gardens. Once at the gardens we changed the children’s footwear to wellies as typically being the weekend it was raining and headed on in. The Ocarro tackled the hills and bumps up to the great glasshouse with no problem at all with Tiggy singing as we went.
Inside the glass house is very pretty so Tiggy chose to both push and run alongside the Ocarro showing Pippa the plants and fish as we went.
With little Pip now asleep in the Ocarro we made our way through the gardens with Tiggy enjoying splashing in the puddles as we went stopping to take in the plants for the boy’s homework and even a detour through the butterfly house which Tiggy loves!
Time to head home and the Ocarro is so easy to collapse to “throw” into the boot of the car and within no time we were heading home for the boys to write up their trip to the gardens and with all the running and jumping about in the fresh air and puddles Tiggy was asleep in no time.
So what do we think of the Ocarro?
The Ocarro is a gorgeous product, super stylish and well made. It’s so easy to use in any mode, from popping on the carrycot to changing it to the pushchair and the option to face the world or face mummy is an effortless transition and literally takes just seconds. The shopping basket is a huge asset, very much with the emphasis on “huge”, with two little ones I carry “everything but the kitchen sink” with me but there was still plenty of room for our shopping. Our short answer to what we think of the Ocarro is that we love it for it’s easy of use, excellent manouvreability and the fact it looks great is of course an added bonus, I’d highly recommend it! xoxo.
