Advantages Small, lightweight, easily manoeuvred
Disadvantages Struggles over rough terrain, not suitable for all ages, no basket
I bought my Quinny Zapp when my daughter was tiny, after falling in love with one at the registry office when we went to register her birth. As we struggled into the lift with our cumbersome, bulky travel system another new mum zipped (or zapped) in next to us, pushing her tiny pushchair with one hand, fitting into the very small amount of space we'd left beside our four-wheeled monstrosity. I'm not ashamed to admit - I damn near drooled. Three wheels, tiny, obviously lightweight, and with the car seat neatly and firmly attached to the stylish silver frame, it was practical, unusual and everything I now realised I wanted in a pushchair.Three weeks of nagging eventually persuaded mr monkeybelly, and I ordered and received my gorgeous new buggy, delivered by Kiddicare.com for what I considered to be a bargain £110.
WHAT'S SO GOOD ABOUT IT?
2. It turns into a travel system
You can fit a maxi-cosi infant car seat by simply sliding it onto the ports built into the frame. These car seats cost, on average, about £90 - but you can find them cheaper in sales. They're really very attractive and worth the money if you can spare it, but the material on the seat doesn't let your baby's skin breathe well, so aren't perfect if you're expecting over the summer months.
4. Wheel lock is simple and actually works
With a red "stop" button on one side and a grey "go" button on the other, the brakes are excellent - you don't have to push too hard, you don't scuff your shoes trying to catch a lever with the tip of your toe, you won't injure yourself taking the brakes off if you're wearing sandals…and best of all, they work properly - you know that they're on and the pushchair really isn't going to go anywhere, no matter how much your little person fidgets.
6. It's easily cleaned
The material has a slight sheen to it and can be wiped clean - mine still looks great despite a lot of use
