Parent Approved Panellist Haley & baby Elodie sample some simple luxuries…
By Haley Archibald
We all love a little luxury, and just because you’re now a parent, doesn’t mean you should go without the finer things. Our Ocarro Simply Luxe has the same great practical features of our original Ocarro, including the one hand fold, plush seat and all-terrain wheels, but with an even more luxurious design that’s sure to stand out. How did Haley and Elodie get on with it?
As a parent, you always want what is best for your little one. However as there are so many pushchairs to choose from, it is easy to end up with one that is not fit for purpose. Unfortunately, the first pushchair that I chose was bulky and awkward to put away so when I was introduced to the Mamas & Papas Simply Luxe Ocarro, I was over the moon. After receiving the pushchair I eagerly looked for opportunities take Elodie out.
As the world of pushchairs can be mind-boggling I thought I would share with you my top five things that I love about the Ocarro Simply Luxe:
I am definitely not a master at assembling things and often call for back up, so I was pleasantly surprised that I was able to quickly assemble the pushchair without any assistance.
Yes - you read that right. This pushchair can be folded down with one hand. I mean, what is not to love about this feature? As a parent, you often spend your time wishing you had more hands to be able to balance the 101 things a baby needs and therefore you quickly grow to love anything that can be done one handed. The ability to be able to fold the pushchair down with one hand is a winner for me because it means that even if Elodie is having a really clingy day, I can fold down the pushchair whilst holding her. This ensures I avoid a massive meltdown, bonus mum points.
The Ocarro Simply Luxe oozes sophistication and is designed in such a way that means you don’t have to scrimp on quality. Why choose beauty over comfort when you can have both? The beauty really is in the details from the pearlescent chassis to the embossed textures on the handle bar and quilted detailing on the hood lining. You can tell that care has gone into creating this pushchair and the little features do not go unnoticed.
Comfort for your little one is usually at the forefront of every parents’ mind and this pushchair definitely delivers. From the comfy headrest to the padded seat - you can rest assured, knowing that your baby will be comfortable throughout your journey.
The pushchair also offers comfort no matter the weather; on warm sunny days you can open the air vent at the back of the hood to provide your baby with breathable and cooling protection from the sun. As the cooler days approach, you can install the soft sheepskin liner to provide an extra layer of warmth and comfort to your baby.
It is common knowledge that as parents we often forego our own comfort to ensure that our little ones are happy and content. So what about the parents, I hear you ask? Don’t worry. This pushchair has it covered. From the adjustable handlebar, to the handy drinks holder, to the sheepskin lined fur mitts, this pushchair ensures that everyone is comfortable on family outings.
With the simple pull of a lever, the seat can be adjusted to suit baby’s needs. The ability to fully recline the pushchair means that it is suitable from birth as well. When your baby is a little bit older and wants to see more of the world, you can easily sit them up without any hassle. For us, another bonus is that the seat can easily be adjusted to be either world or parent facing. Elodie is very inquisitive and so the ability to easily change her view is a big bonus.
So there you have it, my top five things that I love about the Ocarro Simply Luxe pushchair. If I had this pushchair at the start of my parenting journey then I would have ventured out on a solo journey with Elodie a lot sooner. So with that being said, my only regret is that I spent so long without it.
