If you are into sports, you would have owned a pair of Nike Air during the 90s. It made you feel at least 0.3412kg lighter and psychologically perform better if not made you look cooler that your team mates who are not wearing one, right? BobaAir is nothing close to that. Well at least it is the lightest and coolest baby carrier in the world. As what the manufacturer claimed, it is “simple to use, ultra lightweight and ergonomic! The perfect carrier for travelers or any parent on the go – when you’re done, just fold, zip & stash”. This time I have to disagree with the ergonomic part. Since I’ve written two product reviews on Boba products (Boba Wrap & Boba Carrier), why not write another one on BobaAir for the benefit of many demanding young & active parents nowadays? As promised, like any other post or reviews in this blog they are simply my honest opinion.

In short, BobaAir is a nice-to-have baby carrier if you have those extra cash to burn. It is as light and compact as your foldable shopping bag. Therefore, it’ll fit into your handbag or baby bag comfortably in case if your baby suddenly decides not to walk or sit in their stroller. It cost half of a normal Boba Carrier and has that Boba’s neat cutting and design. BobaAir is the perfect baby carrier if you want to take your baby along to Pasar Tani or any outdoor activities because the material used is very light & cooling. However, I would not recommend BobaAir to be used as your main baby carrier or to be used for a long period of time. It does not have any paddings or cushion at the pressure points which will make you feel tired faster. After trying it for a few times with my 1 year old baby, she obviously did not feel comfortable in it.

Whatever your decision is, hope that you had a wonderful 2012 and wishing you a very happy new year!

    i saw this at the lunatots and my first feeling was huge regret. i just bought the baba carrier at the moment. but i was reassured by the sales exec that there’s a whole lot of difference in comfort between the two. i love how light boba air is though. 😀 good review!

      It is very light and compact, kan? Always best to try out the carrier with our babies first and let them be the judge ;p
