Advantages: Light, portable and looks great
Disadvantages: Not great on rougher terraine
admit, I bought this pushchair for all the wrong reasons - I saw it on display and thought it was the cutest pushchair I had seen and decided right then and there that I wanted it.
The next stage was to come up with practical reasons to convince my partner it was necessary. As it turned out, The Quinny Zapp would be one of the most practical buys I have made for my kids.
The Quinny Zapp out-styles the other pushchairs by miles. With it's bright coloured seats (mine is in traffic stopping orange but it also comes in black, steel blue, red and mauve) and the sleek steel frame in a sort of pod shape, it stands out for all the right reasons.
This pushchair is the lightest and most comact chair on the market. It weighs only 6kgs and fold up to measure just 63cms. All parents have found themselves swearing at their pushchair when they are trying to fold it down with one arm while carrying your child and 14 shopping bags in the other. This chair is by far the easiest to fold down with no sticking or locking to contend with. Once folded, it has an over the shoulder bag which it fits neatly into for longer journeys. Having recently flown to Canada on my own with my son, I was terrified of getting around the airport with bags, pushchair and son in toe, but the Quinny made this so much easier.
There are only two downsides to the Quiny Zapp that I can think of. Although it runs beautifully over paved ground due to its 360 degree swivel front wheel and the suberb suspension on the back wheels, it doesn't do so well on rougher terraine.
The other downside is inevitable with such a lightweight chair. Be careful not to over load the handles with shopping bags as it can't take too much weight and could flip back.
Being this compact, you don't have the luxury of adjustable heights but with the Zapp I don't think you need it. This spacious pod-shaped chair gives your child plenty of room and is tilted at a perfect angle to allow them to watch the world go by or alternatively take the opportunity for a wee nap.
The seat cover and sun canopy both detach with easy meaning they can be cleaned down. The bonus is that unlike others, they also go back onto the frame with the same amount of ease!
Granted the Quinny is slightly more expensive than your average chair (approx £119 although I got mine for £85 on ebay)With the addition of the Maxi Cosi car seat, it can be adapted to suit new babies as well and will do until the child is about 4 years old.
I cannot recommend this pushchair enough. It has genuinely made some of the tougher aspects of being a mother easier. If you have the money to spend, the Quinny Zapp is an absolute must!
Summary: A pushchair with a difference
