Disadvantages: Can open up on it's own
As soon as my husband saw this pram I knew it was the one we would end up with. I'd seen a lovely spotty little number but he wasn't budging on this one.
My husbands shopping list was like he was looking for a car, big chunky wheels (not like a shopping trolly), easy to steer, nice and sporty looking and most improtantly something that would fit his 6tf 4in frame. This pram ticked all the boxes.
This pram looks great and is incredibly versatile. Although the price tag looks steep if you add all the accessories if you shop around there are usually deals on this pram. I got mine from mothercare with £100 off. It's will also take you right through from newborn to toddler. My sister went for a cheaper pram and ended up buying three different ones during the time I've had my Quinny.
The frame can initially be used with the Quinny dreamy which gives you more of a traditional pram feel and allows your newborn to lay completely flat. However if you don't want to spend the extra £150 on this accessory the pushchair can be adjusted into many different positions both facing toward and away from you. One of the settings is almost completely horizontal so is also ideal for newborns.
The maxi cosi car seat also fits onto the frame of this pushchair which is ideal for quick trips. It also means not having to disturb a sleeping baby. You need to remember however that this is only for a quick trip to the shop since the maximum recommend time for your baby to be in the car seat is 2 hours.
As my daughter grew this pushchair grew with her. We started with her facing us and then turned it around so she could see the world. After about 16 months she started to outgrow the pushchair but included with the main frame is a second seat that is recommended for 18 months plus. This has a much deeper seat and will be suitable for her until we no longer need a pram.
The buzz is extremely easy to us. It folds down by just pressing a button on each side and pushing towards the floor. Opening it up is even easier since you just flick a switch and it opens up itself.
It also fits into my small car (Renault Clio). Admittedly for the first two months I had to remove the parcel shelf until I realised that the large wheels at the back are easily removed. You just need to push one button for each wheel and when putting them back on you just push them back in and they click into place. Removing these makes it much easier to store.
The handle bar is also adjustable which makes it comfortable for both my husband and myself to use. I initially thought that it was a bad design since I couldn't hang by bag on the handle but now I realise it is a much safer option since there isn't the risk of overloading and tipping your pram. For £20 I bought the shopping basket that fits underneath the carriage. This is great and easily fits my nappy bag and a couple of shopping bags. If you do decide to hang coats etc from the handle bars you can also buy pram clips from mothercare for £2.99. These are little hooks that fit onto the handlebar.
Included with the pushchair was a rain cover, hand pump for the wheels and also a bag that fits on the back of the pushchair but there are also lots of great accessories that you can buy.
The only negative issue I have had with the buzz is that after 9 months it started to open up on it's own when we were carrying it. Unfortunately this can be quite dangerous if like me you trap your hand. We took this back to mothercare and they replaced the catch that holds it closed. Unfortunately after 18 months it has started doing it again so I recommend taking extra care when lifting it out of the car boot since last week it opened up as I was lifting it out and I managed to scratch my husbands car. I would have given full marks if it wasn't for this.
Summary: Dads love this one
