I was honoured to be sent the new Boba 3G to review. I have been using the Boba carrier for almost a year now and I was really excited to try the new version with the new upgrades. I was sent the Kangaroo pattern which I LOVE.
So the new carrier is amazing. It has all of the same great qualities as the Boba 2G such as a hood, foot straps (though they go on with snaps now and make it WAY easier to adjust them) and a really high back so baby/toddlers can’t lean back. The straps are super comfortable and you can wear your child for extremely long times and still be comfortable.
POCKETS!!! The new Boba has 3 pockets. On the waist strap there is a zippered pocket and above it a pocket. The other pocket is at the top of the carrier where you can store the removable hood and store a diaper or a snack (or whatever). Even when I am wearing Capri on my back I am able to reach behind me and put my keys or debit card into the zippered pocket which is really helpful.
Purses/bag holder. On the shoulder strap there is a new strap that you can put your diaper bag, grocery bag or purse (or whatever you are carrying that has straps) on. This way you don’t have to worry about it slipping off of your shoulder. I have used this a few times and it is a really nice addition.
Boba also just introduced a new accessory which is a bag that clips onto your Boba straps. You can check it out here; it is called the Boba Pack. This bag is really cute and would be great but I find it a bit pricey.
The last new feature is the weight change. The Boba 2G started at 15lbs, the new Boba 3G starts at 7lbs and goes up to 45lbs.
From 7-15lbs you can snap the bottom of your Boba up and turn the straps so that it is an infant carrier. In the hood pocket there is a strap to adjust the head support for your newborn. I love this new feature. I have only tried it with Capri’s doll but it seems great. Especially for those who wish to only buy one carrier for their baby.
Overall I love the new Boba 3G. They also sell stretchy wraps for those that wish to use a wrap for smaller babies. You can check out all their new things on their new website http://www.bobafamily.com.
