Is it possible to be in love with a pram? I only ask because today I have met the gorgeous Mylo and I truly believe that I am in love!
I feel incredibly lucky to have been invited into the Mamas and Papas headquarters today, to view some exclusive new ranges and to drool over the existing beautiful products which make the brand so fantastic. Can you tell I had a great day?!
Firstly, Lynne and Nicola at Mums Panel deserve a big fat thank you for inviting me and for arranging such a fabulous event. Secondly, my husband deserves a bit of a rest now because I have been bending his ear since he got home- so I thought I would blog about it instead now!
Ok, so the Mylo. Wow. Look.
The lime Jelly is my favourite colour but it is also available in Plum Pudding, Dove Grey and Black Jack. The carry cot is amazingly soft and luxurious and the selling point for me is the fact that it fits neatly onto a stand for those times when baby falls asleep on a walk and there is no way EVER that you will wake them… Also, good for refluxy babies: the mattress can be set to an incline! Hooray! Additionally, the carry cot can be adapted whilst on the floor and used to rock the baby to sleep. The pushchair variation for this model is also gorgeous. Look!
AND another selling point for me is that the Cybex Aton car seat fits onto the Mylo, which is the car seat we already have for the baby. So, what’s stopping me? Um, the price. This is Mamas and Papas top of the range model and the entire set costs £695. But it is SO funky and SO pretty (I hope Ghostwriterdaddy is reading this…)
Next on my wish list is the Urbo. Gorgeous, lightweight buggy/ pram:
As with all the pushchair ranges, the colours are divine and the one we looked at was a gorgeous, vibrant blue. This model is really compact and perfect for smaller car boots. I want one. I told you I was in love, didn’t I?
Finally, we looked at the Sola, a model I already have (in the grass colour) and one which is the reason why I initially jumped at the chance to attend the event today.
The Sola is such a fantastic, durable pushchair and when we bought it I promised my husband that I would never ever need another pram again, ever. And you know what? I don’t. We’ve had the Sola for almost two years now and there is practically no wear and tear to speak of at all. The fact that the buggy has lasted so well, particularly given the fact that the toddler and I enjoy daily power walks, is a massive indication as to the quality of the Mamas and Papas products.
So I don’t really need another buggy for the new baby. I’ve ordered a buggy board to fit on my Sola and I intend to wear my baby in a sling for a while too (We were lucky enough to view the new range of slings and carriers too, which I will post about this week.). BUT I came away today with the feeling that any amount is worth paying for the Mylo. Really. Truly. It’s fantastic. Did I mention that?!
In conclusion, the fabulous Mamas and Papas put on a fantastic show for us today and I am well and truly sold on practically everything. More than this though, we learnt today just how wonderfully family orientated the entire company is. I’ll blog more about this later. For now, I am off to dream… of lime jelly wonderfulness…
