Quinny Buzz 3
Advantages: Versatility and durability
Firsts things first. I am by no means a pram expert. This is the only pram that I have ever owned for our first child so I can only really compare to other prams that we tried in the shops. Overall we have been very happy with the purchase. The Quinny buzz is certainly durable, versatile, comfortable for both baby and parents and fairly simple to use. One of the attractive features of this pram over some of the other all in one travel systems that we tried was that the buzz will last until our daughter can walk without needing a push chair, so there won't be any need to buy another buggy in future.
The features of the pram are easy to use. The frame opens out with incredible ease, basically you just release a catch and it opens itself. The parts remove and click into place very easily and it all feels very sturdy, which gives you full confidence. The pram body is fully adjustable and can be rear or forward facing and can be set at different inclines. The handle can also be adjusted to a range of heights to suit you.
My only frustration since buying the Quinny is the number of flat tyres that we have had. If you do buy one of these then I would say that a puncture repair kit and spare inner tubes are essential acquisitions. This is a mild frustration, but when in full working order the tyres do make for a more comfortable journey so overall I think worth the frustration.
I would say that the main draw back to the Quinny Buzz is the price, and I don't just mean the pram itself, but if you want to buy any accessories such as parasol, foot muff etc, then they all come at a fairly hefty price. That being said the pram is good quality, durable and in my opinion stylish, so if you are able to afford a Quinny Buzz and like what it has to offer then go for it, you won't be disappointed. However, I would not say that it is worth pushing the boat out to purchase one of these. There are cheaper alternatives out there and I don't think the advantages of this pram are so great that its worth breaking the bank over.
I have given 4 stars to reflect what I see as the main draw back, the price. The Buzz is still good quality, versatile and nice to use, but I don't think it stands out quite enough to mean that the expense is fully justified, though if you can afford it without struggling then it is worth it. One tip with the price though is to wait for a new line to come out and try and find a retailer selling off the old ones. We managed to do that and got a Quinny dreami carry cot (usually about £120 on their own) and shopping bag included with the pram for the same price you pay for just the Buzz itself.
Summary: Excellent purchase
