Mima Kids Kobi

Mima Kids will be shipping their strollers to stores this month. Mima’s biggest selling point is that the strollers convert from a stroller to a pram by just unzipping the seat around the frame. They have even patented what they are calling the “carrycot inside.”

Mima Kids Kobi

You may remember that Mima Kids won a Kind and Jugend Innovation Award last year for their Kobi stroller. The Kobi is one of the new kind of double strollers that converts from a single to a double by adding a second seat.

This is what director Davy Kho had to say last year about the strollers:

Our products need some explanation.

In terms of design I think we have been able to innovate the stroller category. I especially wanted to get rid of the tacky look of the usual fabric stitched seat. I wanted to achieve the look of the interior of a nice car, with a sleek and clean looking seat.

Also in terms in functionality we have been able to innovate. The seat unit works like a suitcase. You simply zip it open, and inside you will find the frame, with a carrycot attached. The carrycot simply pops out, and there you go. So converting from seat to carrycot, and vice versa, is incredibly easy. After six to eight months of using the carrycot, you just put it back into the seat, without the need of storing it separately. This seat with patented “carrycot inside” system, is the same for both models: Kobi and Xari.

Kobi grows with your family, as you can also buy a second (empty) seat as an accessory when a second baby gets born.

Mima Kids Xari

Xari is a single, more compact stroller.

So if you live in Europe (or are willing to pay for international shipping) keep an eye out for Mima Kids.
