If you’ve already read our Cosatto Trof Highchair review then you will know just how much we love the style and fun that oozes from every pore of the Cosatto brand and just when you think that this quirky brand can’t get any better in swoops this fruity little number
With its stylish turquoise box the Cosatto Yo! In Pear Drop started turning heads from the moment it was delivered to my office and I couldn’t wait to get home to put it together and explore its fab features.
The Yo! is really simple to pop together and within 5 minutes it was ready and awaiting its first adventure. Now I must admit that I’ve never owned an umbrella fold style of stroller as I wrongly assumed that they were all of flimsy quality and a little unsteady– how wrong was I! The Cosatto Yo! is none of those things in fact I was so impressed with its sturdiness that I made my other half push it around the front room to see for himself. I continued to give it a wobble and a shake, after all we live where they still have cobbled pathways in place so it’s going to have to cope, and it remained as rigid as it looked- perfect.
So where do you start start with this eye catching stroller?
Let’s start with the pretty bits..
From Yo’s! pear inspired print to his striped sides and cosy toes this funky stroller is an eye-catching superstar in the making and one that I’m proud to have on my arm around town. The solid brushed silver and black frame compliments the vibrant green fabrics and the retro pattern most definitely makes this little cutie stand out from any crowd.
It’s both quick and easy to fold and unfold the stroller and it literally takes seconds to do which is just what you need when you get caught out by torrential rain whist trying to fold it away and pop it into the boot. The Yo! is fairly long but fits perfectly into the boot of my 59 plate Fiat Bravo however for those of you with narrower boot you can pop off the front wheels in order to create some more space.
The break is straight forward to pop on and off although as it’s a foot break it isn’t ideal for flip flopped feet although by the looks of it we will all be wearing wellies this summer anyway!
The Yo! Pear Drop has a fully lined hood that has a UPF of 50+ and features a peek a book window to enable you to keep an eye on your monster at all times. If your little one is anything like mine then when all goes quiet on the western front you know that they are either sleeping or up to no good so a peak a boo window is a must!
The seat unit features a chunky 5 point harness that can be easily adjusted to one of three different height settings ensuring adaptability as your little one grows whilst the padded chest straps ensure maximum comfort throughout. The seat also combines a solid back and a super simple recline/incline making sure that your bundle of joy can be comfy in any chosen position.
Monster loves the fact that this stroller allows him to sit completely upright, after all he is one nosey boy, whilst the lie flat position is perfect for when he eventually decides to visit the land of nod.
Another very cool feature of the Yo! is the cosy toes which come inclusive of the stroller’s price tag. The waterproof cosy toes sports a cute stripy pattern with a funky pear applique and a couple of cosy pocket to keep tiny hand warm during cold winter days making it not onlypretty but practical too.
Unzip the top panel of the cosy toes to reveal a reversible seat liner and with a cool cotton pear splattered fabric on one side and a green fleece material on the other you can choose the side of liner that best suits the season. Personally I love the pear splattered side as it’s very funky and co-ordinates beautifully with the lining of the hood. The cute liner also provides an extra layer of padding to the seat adding additional comfort for little bodies.
The Yo! also sports an easily accessible and deep storage basket allowing plenty of room for clothes AHEM I mean food shopping but here’s the best bit – thanks to a very cleaver hook on the side of the frame to which the rain cover can be attached there is extra room for more shopping!
Initially I had concerns that I wouldn’t be able to push the stroller one handed as it has a two piece foam handle rather than my current one piece one but thanks to the moulded in finger grooves I managed to steer the stroller whilst being pulled all over the place by a reined toddler and believe me that is no easy task.

I am absolutely in love with the Cosatto Yo! And what’s more Mr Yo! has quickly become the monsters ride of choice too making Mr Yo! our perfect travelling companion.
Priced at around £200 the Yo! is available in three fruity colour ways; Pear Drop, Cherry Pop and Toffee Apple and comes inclusive of a rain cover and bag, cosy toes, reversible seat liner and comfy head hugger ensuring that there are no hidden extras to have to fork out for.
Thanks to the padded head hugger and lay flat seat capability the Cosatto Yo! Is suitable to use from the word go right up until your monster no longer needs making it excellent value for money too.
Well done Cosatto on yet another colourful, stylish and practical product that is bound to get parents up and down the country talking.
