Thule scoops prestigious Mumsnet Award for Cougar cycle carrier

Parenting resource Mumsnet has gonged Thule with a coveted ‘Best’ award for its Cougar child carrier.

Five Mumsnet users (or ‘Mumsnetters’) were given the opportunity to test the Thule Cougar over a four to six week period. Each reviewer giving the product full marks of five stars.

Over 150 mums applied to review the product (unpaid), while the Mumsnet site is said to rack up 19 million unique users per month, so the brand will gain some considerable exposure with this award.

One reviewer said: “Whilst it is a lot of money initially, I would say it is 100% worth it, the versatility is brilliant and it will give you possibilities for getting around.”

Scott Longstaff, Thule brand director at UK distributor Madison, said: “We are thrilled that the Thule Cougar has been given the ‘Best’ Award by Mumsnet and the positive feedback that we have had from the online community has been brilliant. The Thule Cougar really is a fantastic product and allows parents to maintain an active lifestyle and have a family without having to compromise.”
