  • Conclusion: The Mima Kobi is a cleverly designed, stylish buggy packed with clever features.  It’s expensive, but the option to upgrade to a double makes it a potential long-term investment. The Kobi’s not without niggles but it certainly offers something new to the buggy market.
  • Pros: Stylish, easy to use, handles well, two seat and carrycot heights, wipe clean seat, innovative seat pod, rear and forward facing, travel system compatible, can convert to a double buggy, Unlike some buggy brands, Mima has a very clear target audience. The Kobi shouts chic, urban cool. It doesn’t handle well off road but then it doesn’t claim to - it’s an about-town buggy. Looks wise, the Mima Kobi is unique. Some may say that it gives half a nod to the Stokke – in the...
  • Cons: Expensive, brake hard to engage, sunshade restricts height of seat, My major bugbear is the brake. Each time I tried to put it on, my foot slid off the pad.

It doesn’t fair too well off-road and its minimalist design isn’t for everyone, but it’s a good investment if you intend to expand your family and city living is your long-term plan.
  • Pros: Stylish, innovative design, clever seat pod stores carrycot inside, two-position seat height, folds with one seat attached, parent and forward facing, travel system compatible, converts from single to double buggy, Aside from being able to convert from a single buggy to a double, the USP of the Mima Kobi is the unique seat pod. Made from high gloss EVA (mouldable plastic used to make shoes, footballs and surfboards) it feels like luxurious, soft leather. But here’s th...
  • Cons: Expensive, brake system hard to engage, seat unit needs to be stored for the first six months while using carrycot, sunshade restricts height of seats, The Mima Kobi has a very clear target parent – think urban family, rather than country-family. For this reason, it’s hard to find much wrong with the set up. I haven’t used an inline double buggy yet that makes light work of getting the second child into the lower seat. Poor Poppy has been shoved, lowered and twisted i...
