New Maxi Cosi Loola Pushchair Review


At the start of last month we were very kindly sent the Maxi Cosi Loola pushchair to test out. We were given the opportunity to review this pushchair before it even came out on the market! When I was contacted I jumped at the chance, I LOVE Maxi Cosi, we had the Maxi Cosi Pebble infant car seat  until Amelia sadly grew out of it at 10 months and it is such a trusty brand. I loved the fact that it could fit my Quinny buzz and that's the reason I bought both at the time. It actually hadn't crossed my mind that Maxi Cosi sell pushchairs too, when I think of Maxi Cosi I instantly think car seat. 

The Maxi Cosi Loola is an updated version of their previous much loved model, Maxi Cosi have listened to YOU their customers and modernised the much loved Loola. The Loola is available to purchase from mid June!

Maxi Cosi Loola Features:

✓ One hand driving handle.
✓ Folds in a flash, without having to remove the seat when folding it.
✓ Clip a Carrycot or a group 0+ to switch easily from a car trip to a stroller walk.
✓ Smaller : even more compact to slalom easily in busy traffic
✓ Smarter : folding automatic lock
✓ Loola will last until your child walks on its own and even more

Unboxing the pushchair was pretty easy, within a few minutes I had it all together and ready to go. I like the fact that it comes in one box and sometimes they can come in a number of smaller boxes which is off-putting. The only part you need to put together is the hood which clips on each side of the frame. The wheels are already attached which is always a bonus. The only thing that took me a while to figure out was how to open the pushchair! That's what I get for not reading the manual first. But once I did it, it was clearly shown how to do so. My first impressions on the pushchair were that it was pretty smart, but square. I'm more of a fan of a curved pushchair but that's only because of what I'm used to.


Like I previously said its not easy to open - if you haven't read the instructions and it took a while to get used to that and now I can open it in an instance. You pull up the two lock buttons on each side and push down on the handle and it opens. The brakes are really easy to use, the red brake turns them on and the grey releases them.


One thing I have noticed is that is is pretty heavy, well for a weakling like me! Ha! Andy had no problem carrying it about but did comment that it was heavy than other pushchairs. It's not something you want to lug around and I couldn't imagine carrying it on further distances. 


So now that I've got the downsides out of way here is the good stuff! The positives definitely outweigh the negatives. I love how easy it is to access the shopping basket and it's pretty spacious too, it's not too close to the seat above which is great as you can fit bigger items or bag underneath. The frame of the pushchair is reasonably slim allowing your to easily slalom through busy crowds whilst out and about. Also if you are going to be using it on public transport that is a bonus too.


You can choose to have the seat parent facing or forward facing depending on your preference. I prefer to have Amelia parent facing towards me but she did like to be forward facing. Its easy to adjust in just a few simple clicks. The pushchair can be used from newborn right up until your child is 3.5 years of age.

The padding of the seat is very comfortable which is always good especially if you are using it with a newborn. I like to know that Amelia is having a comfortable ride and that if she goes to sleep she will be nice and snug too. The harness is easy to use and is super secure and the padding around it is comfortable on the shoulders. 


The handles are adjustable which I love, and it's at a reasonable height. All you need to do is click on the two buttons on each side and voila! I prefer having it at the middle setting where as Andy has to raise it higher because he's much taller. The frame of the pushchair is really sturdy, and I really like the way it opens and closes as it slides down the frame. 

I particularly am impressed with the hood, I think that's my favourite features on the pushchair. It must be the biggest hood I have seen, but that is good especially if it's raining you can pull the hood all the way down over your baby to keep the wind and rain out or even for keeping the sun out of your babies eyes when the weather is nice. Saves having to bring a parasol with you. The hood also has a panel at the top allowing you to peek through and keep an eye on your baby if they are sat in the forward facing position. 


When collapsed the pushchair is pretty small and easy to fit into the boot of the car or under the stairs for storage. The folding automatic lock is fantastic and I really like the fact that the seat collapses with the pushchair too. Saves a lot of room. That's one thing I love about pushchairs that collapse all in one instead of having to carry around two parts, that puts me off buying it.

Overall I am extremely impressed with this pushchair and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a good reliable pushchair. We have been using it for the past month and have no faults to mention, only that is is slightly heavier than expected. 

The Loola is available to purchase in three different designs: Graphic Crystal, Modern Black, Origami Rose. As previously mentioned the Loola will be launching mid-June and retailing at £300.00 I think that's a reasonable price for a pushchair with fantastic features!

*We were sent this pushchair for the purpose of the review. All opinions are my own. You can find my disclaimer here.

  13. I read another one of your posts and you mentioned a pushchair. It took me a minute to realize it meant what we call a stroller in the US. I love reading blogs from other parts of the world and learning different terminology. I think it's interesting how the same thing can be called so many different terms. I also see it referred to as a buggy sometimes, like one of your commenters did.

  31. Looks really sturdy, and compact. My nephew and his mummy are finding that there are pushchairs and there are *pushchairs*, and this looks, to me, like a good one. Luckily, they haven't chosen too badly either, but as I recall they've had a few reservations - a decision to make carefully.
