Ive had a few of theese prams over the years, and i cant complain much about them to be fair, there stylish they come in a variety of colours, theres loads of matching accessories you can buy for them and there comfy for your little one!
Good Points - The best part about them pram to me is that i can face it either way which i always love in a pram, the seat is very comfy for your little one and the footmuff is very warm and cosy and also quite roomy if you have a tall child!
The pram is relatively easy to push and not heavy to push either, the frame is hydrolics which makes it very easy to fold and unfold.
Bad Points - When parent facing you cant fold the pram you have to change the seat around which can be a bit of a pain, its also quite heavy and bulky when folded.
The few other problems i have is the fact there is no shopping basket you can buy an extra one to go on the bottom but there not very roomy at all so its not a great pram if you have loads of shopping to do!
Also with both the prams ive had the foam handle doesnt seem to last very long and tends to rip!
Overall - I do like the pram i have one at the moment, it looks good, it pushes well and my little one can face me and be comfy aswell as i said there is some down sides the main one for me is the shopping space! but it can be resolved with the little clips that you can get for the handles! I would recommend the pram to others :)
I bought this pushchair in 2007 when I was pregnant with my 1st child. We spent an age in Kiddicare testing out what seemed like hundreds of pushchairs! Both myself and my husband wanted a pushchair that was easy to put up and down and that we could also use as a traditional pram too (we also bought the dreami carrycot too).
It is really easy to put up and down and easy to take the carrycot and pushchair seat on and off (and also the maxi cosi car seat). It looks really smart and seems and looks comfortable.
There are some downsides though, these are that the shopping basket is really, really small, and basically fits hardly anything in. I have also had issues with punctures in the front tyres, however I had these repaired at a cycle shop and they were sealed inside too and since then I have had no issues with the wheels.
The other issue is sometimes the steering of the pushchair seemed quite heavy and not as light as I would have liked. Especially when I had my 2nd child and I was trying to push the pushchair with one hand whilst holding my eldest's hand too. The front wheel would quite often stick.
The final issue was the length of the straps, which would not fit across a toddler especially when wearing a coat. However Quinny did supply free extension straps which solved the problem and I do believe newer models do not have this issue.
If I had my time again I am not sure I would choose this pushchair again, whilst I did like it, I think there are other pushchairs on the market which offer all the pros of the Buzz but without the cons.
first time mum, very excited, hormones all over the place, best time to make important purchase decisions? I always loved the look of the Quinny Buzz, especially the bright colour choice available. I bought a Quinny Buzz in November 2008 in strawberry, with all the accessories, for my little girl, who is now 10 month old.
First of all the good points:
- easy to put down
- quite compact
- can have baby facing both towards you or facing out
- can attach first infant carrier car seat
- one of the best cosy toes I have seen
Now for the bad points:
- shows every bit of dirt on the seat
- tyres prone to punctures
- very difficult to change seat (you get another seat cover)
- found frame to make lots of squeaks and seems very flimsy after only 10 months of occasional use
I could go on and pick it apart but this is not the best quality pram and it is modestly priced and I expected a lot more. I use my car most of the time so did not do very much walking with this but I would dread to think what condition with would be in if I walked everywhere! I think it is poorly made and not build to last.
would I buy another Quinny? no defiantly not
When I was pregnant with my daughter in 2007, we looked at what felt like thousands of different prams, strollers, travel systems and pushchairs. We spent hours test driving them round the various baby shops and eyeing up what everyone else was 'driving'. I first noticed the Quinny Buzz when I saw a lady pushing one around a shop, my husband and I got chatting to the lady and she gave us a run down on all the different features and various attachments you could get for it. We fell in love straight away and it was then that I knew it was the pram for us as it suited all our needs.
We went to a shop to have a look at one and for a test drive to make sure it was definitely the one for us, and it lived up to all our expectations so the moment we got home, I started to search out a better value one on the internet. I found the perfect one on Kiddicare website, it was bright pink and orange (we knew after several scans we were having a girl) and was around £40 cheaper than in the shops we looked in. We also purchased the pink and orange dreami carrycot to go with it and also a maxi cosi car seat so we had the full travel system.
When it arrived, I couldn't wait to get it out of the boxes and 'have a go' my husband took it out of the box and put the wheels on - which looked very simple to do. After reading the instructions for a bit (I always do for everything!) I clipped in the pushchair seat and had a wander around my lounge pushing the puschair, feeling very proud indeed!
The pushchair has what claims to be a lightweight chasis but I still found it very heavy to lift in and out of the boot of the car. It opens up and folds down very easily though. The thing that drew me to this pushchair was that it was a 3 wheeler with 'proper' tyres and looked good for off road pushing. The air filled wheels made it very easy to push and comfy for baby. The pushchair also comes with a 'buzz box' which is a little changing bag that clips on to the frame of the pushchair. I thought this was a good idea but sometimes I do catch my feet on it and also, because the bag is so low down, after a while of folding the pushchair with it on, the bag becomes scuffed and worn underneath. The Buzz also comes with a pump for the tyres, raincover and also a mosquito net.
When my daughter arrived, we mainly used the Buzz chasis with the maxi cosi car seat as it was very convenient to just get the chasis out of the boot of the car and clip baby in car seat on to the frame without having to disturb her. For in the house, we actually used the Buzz frame with the carrycot as this is all my fussy little madame would sleep in!
When our daughter was around 6months old, we decided to try her in the memory foam pushchair seat that clips on to the chasis. We found this to be very good as it has multiple positions and can be parent facing or forward facing. At first I made sure she was facing us but then after a while, I realised that she would probably want to watch where we were going and look at all the things around. I initially found the pushchair seat to be brilliant but then when my daughter got to around 10months old, she looked squashed in the seat and also, I could see that the straps were soon going to be too short. I was really annoyed because we had spent a fortune on this travel system for it to be no good within less than a year. I decided to phone Dorel UK - the manufacturers of the Quinny buzz and complain. I am really glad I did because it seems that all the ones made around that time had the same problem and it was well known. They sent me a toddler pushchair insert and some strap extensions totally free of charge. When I have looked at the recent models of the Buzz, they come with the XL seat unit now and appear to have made the straps longer. I was just unlucky with my purchase but there wasn't any problem in the end as Dorels customer service was excellent. Needless to say, after that my daughter continued to be comfy and stylish in her Buzz.
We are currently expecting child number 2 and plan to use the Buzz all over again as the chasis really is in excellent condition still after all the use we have had out of it. We found out we are expecting a baby boy this time so we have had to replace the bright pink and orange pushchair seat and carrycot though but thankfully these bits are easily replaceable and it means we can carry on using our fabulous pushchair!
Overall, we have found this pushchair to be brilliant. Yes it is expensive but it has really lasted and the quality is fantastic. Also, the customer service aftercare that we received from Dorel was excellent and that adds to the experience of owning a Quinny Buzz! The extras and accesories are very expensive as we found out when we wanted to buy the matching footmuff and parasol! The footmuff cost almost £50 and the parasol was around £20!
I saw these prams everywhere and thought they looked great and very stylish. I eventually bought one. I would say that it looks good and has many benefits such as the bag that clips onto the base as you don't need to worry about it falling off the handles and it hitting your legs. I do love the gas folding mechanism as it just unfolds itself so you don't need to pull it up. Another great thing was that you can get a car seat that clips directly on to the frame which was great for nipping out to the shops. The basket underneath is also stronger that other baskets and can hold quite a lot of stuff and the wheels at the back are great as they are big and bouncy. The not so good bits are that the pram itself sometimes felt a bit wobbly when it has the seat unit on. The front wheel would sometimes stick and slide accross certain types of flooring i.e Supermarkets which was really annoying and made it difficult to push. I would say that it was difficult to get up and down kerbs probably because it has three wheels and is also difficult to push along rougher terrain. Also when folded it is a bit big if the seat unit is on so is a bit hard to get in and out of the car boot.
Overall it is a good pram if you want the convienience of the car seat clipping to the frame, but if you want a sturdy pram for walking it may not be for you.
Buying a travel system one of the largest buys ever so here is my humble opinion but it is well worth reading as many reviews as possible from manufacturers web sites too - however i love my Quinny Buzz and am very glad i chose it for lots of reasons.
Firstly i have neck problems and needed a system that was as easy as possible to put up and down and the Quinny Buzz provided the hydraulics that make it spring up without any pushing and pulling and heavy lifting within 30 seconds. It was hard at the start and i did struggle for a week or so but once you get the knack and see other Mums struggling away with clips and levers etc i am just so glad mine springs up ready to go!
I also live in the country and have found the pram very eary to use on rockier terrain not just in shops and around town.
My son is certainly very comfortable in his pram and we invested in the foot muff to go with this althoughthat is persnal preferance it keeps him very cosy and again is so easy to add. There is also the addition of a bag and shopping basket which i would recommend too - handy for keeping the rain cover in which is easy to fit too im glad to say.
The saet reclines smoothly once your baby is asleep too and the shield is super for keeping the wind or sun off his face.
I really love my pram and have absolutely no regrets at all.
I bought this pram when I was 14 weeks pregnant as I liked the look of it, and my husband thought it was not too girly and he could put it up and down very easily - not always the best reasons for buying a pram.
However it is very stylish, but style comes at a price - the pushchair itself - frame, seat, rain cover and mini bag retails at around £300, other accessories are very expensive - the shopping bag which attaches underneath is £15, the foot muff is £50 and the carrycot is £150.
Its more than just a pram, it is a travel system. This means you can attach a compatible car seat to the frame (we have the maxi cosi cabriofix car seat £109 ) for ease of use when baby is still small, unlike many other travel systems on the market the car seat does not sit in the pushchair, this is a massive advantage as it reduces the weight of the pushchair - which is really noticeable when you are walking uphill!
The carrycot is lovely, it is lovely and lined but this lining is machine washable- great for a sickly baby. It also attaches directly onto the frame and it was very useful for letting my baby fall asleep while out on a walk detaching the carrycot from the frame when we got indoors and he remained asleep throughout. You can also use the carrycot instead of a mosses basket which was handy for when we were visiting friends and relatives.
The pushchair is very good if you want your baby to be facing you when you are out and about, a speech and language therapist told me this increases your babies speech development as they are basically a captive audience watching you talk to them while you walk. The pushchair seat can also be turned to face outwards which is handy if you are out sight seeing, feeding the ducks etc.
The negatives we found are the wheels/tyres. We have had numerous punctures and the front wheel often gets stuck and drags when you are pushing, making it really awkward, a bit like pushing a shopping trolley with a wonky wheel.
This buggy had always intrigued me as they seem so popular and better value and funky alternative to the bugaboo cameleon I had.
I was fortunate that a mate let me borrow hers for a week try before buy.
I used the older style 2006 version with the large non memory foam seat.
Things I liked about the buzz was the fact
its funky looking
Single handle to push with one hand
light to push and can push in circles like bugaboo
Fits my prefered carseat maxi cosi cabrio and dreami carrycot lovley for newborns.
Comes in range of funky colours and has lost of matching accesories and some cool limited editions.
Large spacious seat with recline
optional bumper bar.
Ok on all terrain.
Once folded chassis quite small so fitted easily into bmw boot
Handle height adjustable
Raincover was nice good quality
buzz box deceptivly spacious
Fold took some practice but easy once mastered
Fantastic price considering the features
If you not guessed already really rate this buggy and definatly prefered it over bugaboo.
Like any 2parts its bulky but was lovley and light to push as well as rear facing so ticked all the boxes for me.
Alas was gutted could not keep as had one big problem
My narrow front door,was too wide at back.
My daughter still liked to nap at 8months in pram and hated fact I had to wake her to get her into house so mate had it back I never brought.
I still do pine and admire!
might get one as car buggy for next baby and have a house buggy as well.
Quinny have changed it over the years some people say not for the good as seat much smaller but they now recognised that fault and buzz now comes with 2 seats and new small seat meant to be better for tiny babies if you did not wish to buy carry cot.
Its good value for money and one of my faves
I have had the Quinny since my daughter was 6months and she is now 13months so have had good use of it so will do the good and bad point.
It is a lovely pram and when put my daughter first in it in the baby seat bit she was all snug it is a dream to push and felt very light to push, the baby bag (buzz box) is stored at the base of the pram where it just hooks on and at the back of the pram there is a lovley rain mac that pulls out and hooks over the bag if you was in heavy rain to save the bag getting soaked.
If getting on a bus it can fit into a corner nicely so then other prams can go next to it.
Bad point.......... To fold the pram you have to take the seat off then attempt to fold the pram after doing it acouple of times you do get the hang of it even though it still can be a struggle to do, it does have a bit of weight to it so isn't the lightest of prams.
When putting in to a car if you have a big boot then it will go straight in but if your boot is small then the pram will not fit in with out taking the back wheels off so there is another problem the back end of the pram is wide and if going through a normal sized door way can bang in to the door way and can get a bit irratating.
I haven't done this as yet but it is best to get the back wheels filled with slime as this avoids any punctures you can get.
Handle bar extends to a very good height so is good for taller people aswell as shorter people.
Now my daughter is older and bigger you can feel more of a weight to the pram when pushing but i guess this is the same for any pram once they get bigger.
In all though i do love my pram apart from the odd bad bits.
When we first went out shopping for pushchairs we had a few things that it needed to be....
compact (due to boot space),comfortable for my little one,easy to open and close and also nice look to it.....
The quinny buzz is all of these things..... and more ......
The pushchair is very lightweight and versatile as you can use it with the pushchair unit,the dreami carrycot or the maxi cosi cabrio carseat .The pushchair unit can be rear of forward facing which is not only great for you child but also for you as a parent. The seat also has 3 reclining and sitting options. The pushchair also comes with a raincover,sun canopy changing bag, pump for the back tyres and car seat adaptors.
The thing the buzz does not come with is any storage for your shopping but you can buy a shopping basket that can be attached underneath, i have one and although it might be small it does help to just give you a little somewhere. The other thing i use are pram clips (in boots/mothercare) they attach nicely on the handle of the buzz and can hold a few bags. Nothing too heavy though as you dont want it to topple with little one in it !!!!
The thing that makes this pushchair extra special in my eyes is the easy fold action. You can open pick up & open all with one hand !!! The folding down of the buzz was a bit tricky at first but with a few goes it loosens up and it really easy to do.
The driving of the pushchair is also brilliant as its soo soo smooth. The front wheel is a swivel wheel so getting around is really easy but it can also be locked.The brakes on the buzz are very good too, as i travel on the bus alot i wanted one with brakes i can trust !!!
The Buzz also has an adjustable handle which can be made higher or lower very simply to suit who ever is pushing it so if you are short like me have it down or if you are tall like my hubby lift it right on up....
The buzz does catch alot of peoples eyes and that is something i like as its not your normal run of the mill pushchair.... people often look in amazement as it unfolds as if by magic. There are quite a few of them around now but with the range of colours quinny do dont be suprised to get asked about it....lol
I have mainly used my carrycot and carseat so far as my baby is only a few months old but i cant wait to use the main seat more as its great... the fact that they can be facing you is not only good for peace of mind but also for your childs development which is paramount to all parents...
I purchased my buzz from on ebay through one the sellers from Germany, this i done as it was very cost effective... I paid £330 for the buzz, dreami carry cot and shopping basket.This i think is an excellent price as in stores i have seen the pushchair on its own at £299 so my advice would be shop around.
Here is some of the more technical information that you might find helpful about the buzz
Folded Depth 23.62 in
