Is it summer or winter? Chicco 2015 collection

Is it summer or winter? Neither - it's autumn!  But it was both summer and winter at last week's Chicco 2015 collection launch. 

Toddler girl and I love being Chicco Happiness Testers, and I was invited along to Chicco's lovely new offices and showroom just outside London to see what's new across the whole Chicco range.

And as this is the collection for 2015, the showroom was themed summer and winter.  I loved the Christmas food; those Christmas puddings were delicious.

And a few wonderful new and updated Chicco products caught my eye too. 

Brand new to the range is the Chicco Lullago travel crib.  This is a lightweight and secure crib, which can be folded down into a bag.  Perfect for when you're on the go, and I think it would work really well as a first cot too - an ideal step between a moses basket and cot.

The legs clip into the side of the crib and have anti-slip feet so it's ultra secure.  The crib and mattress both fold easily too. I love the mesh panels, which are great for air circulation and for checking on baby.  Best of all is the mattress, which unlike other travel cribs and cots is really thickly padded and feels really comfy.

The whole thing can be taken apart and folded in a matter of minutes, and stored in a handy bag that would fit really well in the boot of all cars.  And it weighs just 17lbs, so it's easy to carry.
With an RRP of £99.99, this was my top pick of the event, and I reckon will be used by loads of families when out and about, kept at grandparents' for impromptu naps, and even used at home in place of a moses basket or crib.  I wish we'd had one!

And across the rest of the range, a few other things caught my eye at the event too - I loved the new Chicco toys, including Danny Drift - a remote control car that drifts!  How much would our son love this? 

I also loved the new winter pack for the Urban pushchair (with hand warmers), and a brand new multi-functional activity walker 1-2-3.  But I'll blog those with more pics later.

I'd love to hear if you have a favourite Chicco product, or what you think of the Lullago crib.  Which travel cot did you use?
