As reported by watchdog in 2013 the Cosatto Giggle has had issues with collapsing when in use, worryingly Cossato have NOT issued a product recall for the Cosatto Giggle despite many reports of collapsing buggies putting children at risk.
Watch dog have used a fresh report on BBC 1 23/10/2014 to express that it is not just the early version of the buggy that are having problems with the faulty plastic hinge.
The only potentially affected pushchairs are the Giggle in Sunny, Treet, Go Lightly, Pablo, All Star and Bizzy Betty.

“Our trained service center technicians will remove the front mounting bracket and replace it with a new steel reinforced one, ensuring your Giggle is shipshape and ready to roll. The external appearance will remain the same.”
Asking you to take everything but the frame as they say “We only need the chassis returning”
