Last week i was invited to pop along to the Chicco Launch Day to explore all there new products who are coming on the UK market over the next couple of month.
I have to say i know the brand Chicco but mainly thought there got only toys, strollers, highchairs and bouncers in their product range. Well hope wrong was i?
Chicco got a lot more to offer and certainly rolling the boat out when it comes to launching new products end of this year:
First of i was introduced to the new 2014 Pushchair range which consisted of the Urban a brilliant super compact folded travel system which saves on storage because the seat unit is transformable to a carrycot which saves on storage for you in the house and car! It has everything your heart desires from a handle on the chassis to carry it easily once folded, 4 different handle heights a adjustable leg rest, a warm and protective pram apron which can be used as a cover in the carrycot position or as a leg cover for the seat unit, a car seat adaptor to easily click in your Chicco car seat as well as my favourite: you can personalise it with 5 different colour packs which can be purchased separately to give it your very own unique cool and sleek look! RRP is 349.99 Pounds
Then we have the Active3 stroller which is the perfect buggy for sporty and active parents who love spending time outdoors. It features manual breaks on the handle bar as well as the locking and unlocking of the swivel wheel (which means no more touching of dirty muddy frames!) it has an easy fold with one hand, a handlebar console for storage (which i think should come with every buggy!!) as well as my favourite the XXL expendable hood with UV50+ no need for a extra sun protection when your baby is snoozing it goes right down to the bumper bar. RRP is 299 Pounds
Its again car seat compatible and those puncture proof pneumatic tyres as well as the adjustable shock absorbers make it all around a smooth ride for any terrain!
The 3rd Travel system is called Artic and certainly has something cool about it!
Its ideal for the city and the country, summer or winter with 2 sets of front wheels you can switch from city to “off road” in a few clicks.
It has a easy folding system and comes with a very lush carrycot as well as matching changing bag and foot muff. RRP is 399 Pounds and the Carry Cot comes to 139 Pounds
This is the new Next 2 me crib from Chicco where you can have the benefit of co-sleeping with your baby with the added safety of the baby having its own space to sleep in.
It features anti slip feet, 2 wheels with brakes as well as the brilliant feature of the adjustable height (6 different positions) to ensure it will fit most beds. It makes the perfect travel bed as well because in just a few simple steps its packed up small for you to take away. RRP 149.99 Pounds
I also had a look at the new Boppy Mum Comfort Collection which includes the Total Body Pillow (as seen on the picture spread out on the bed) which has a full body support and a 3 piece modular design. RRP 59.99 Pounds
The Cuddle Pillow which has a ideal size for perfect relaxation with support for tummy back and hips (RRP 29.99 Pounds) and the Pregnancy Wedge which is compact and versatile to support your tummy and back. RRP 19.99 Pounds
And my favourite which Product of the Launch has to be the Boppy Nursing Pillow which has been on the market for quite a few years shame that i only discovered it now it would have been great for when i BF Finn. They have some lovely new pillow cover designs coming out soon!
Then there are the new and improved “Hoopla” Bouncers (RRP 69.99 Pounds) as well as some practical Travel Highchairs called Pocket Snack which comes as seen in any of the Chicco Range in very vibrant colours. Next to the adjustable height and tray positions it can fold flat and has a carry strap. RRP 29.99 Pounds
Just before i was heading home to my boys i received this amazing goodie bag especially created from some Urban Graffiti Artists which Finns is now using as his new Nursery Bag!
Thank you Chicco for having me!
