You’re looking at the future of double prams. It’s beautiful, practical and features design innovations that are genius.
Remember when the first Phil & Ted’s ‘double-decker’ twin prams hit the streets? It was extraordinary and redefined the double pram – I expect the Kobi pram by Mima, a Spanish brand new to the baby and children’s market, will do the same.
First off, the Kobi looks stunning – sleek, smooth, beautifully simple and available in a range of colours that pop (it would be yellow for me). Then there are the design innovations – the Kobi features a patented ‘carrycot inside’ system. Essentially, the pram seats easily convert from a proper carrycot to a seat and back again. I’m impressed by the fact that there is a ‘double-decker’ twin pram finally on the market that includes a proper carrycot but wait, there’s more.
The Kobi seats simply zip open and inside is a frame with the carrycot attached. The carrycot pops out and is suitable for babies until approximately six to eight months of age. When you are finished using the carrycot, simply zip it away and convert it back to a standard seat – seriously amazing! There is no need for separate attachments.
The Kobi comes packed with practical features as well – forward and reverse facing seats, adjustable seat heights, three position seat recline, accessories including a canopy, footmuff, raincover and storage baskets with lids for a clean look plus the seats are compatible with many car seats.
Unfortunately, the Kobi isn’t on the market just yet. It is expected to be released in Europe within the next few months. Also on the way is the Xari, a single and more compact stroller that shares the same ‘carrycot inside’ system as the Kobi.
This pram might not be available locally, but you can compare the features of the ones which are available using our fantastic Chooser.
