Advantages: Looks good, compact when folded down
Disadvantages: No recline, tips easily
As you may know if you read any of my reviews, I have two children under 3 (and yes I do have a telly before anyone asks!) and I have always been a bit of a buggy enthusiast - infact I have had seven over the last 4 years. I wanted a smaller buggy as our car boot isnt enormous, and if my husband and I go out together we dont take our double, we take two seperate buggies. I already have a Mama's and Papas Pulse, so I wanted something that folds down as small as possible.
I had seen lots of people with Zapp's, and I thought it looked quite funky and easy to push. Plus I had seen them folded down and realised how small they are, so it seemed ideal.I decided that I wanted a unisex colour so I could take both my son or daughter out in it, and so I decided on Racoon, which is a lovely chocolate brown colour.
I bought from www.preciouslittleone.com for £120.00 with free delivery.
The buggy comes completer with raincover, but you dont get anything else. The cosytoes is seperate an will set you back around £40, and a shopping basket can be bought on Ebay for £19.95. So for you initial layout you really get the bare bones of a buggy.
It came with its wheels and hood missing, but it was quite easy to put together, despite the instuctions being really difficult to understand.
To be honest, despite the fact its easy to push, and it looks great I am quite disappointed. My son who is 2 and a half isnt the tallest of children, but his head is right at the top of the raincover, and if he grows anymore he wont fit in it, and my daughter who is 13 months always looks so uncomfortable in it, and as the seat is so small she always ends up sliping down in it so she is indanger of being strangled by the straps, and as it doesnt recline if she falls asleep she gets a crick in her neck. Also, its so lightweight that you cant hand much on the handles without it threatening to tip up (it does warn you about this). I also find that folding it is very fiddly, and you have to use two hands to fold it, which isnt great when you are trying to hold onto a toddler or a squirming baby.
On the plus side, it does fold down very small, the dimensions given are 69cm x 29cm x 30cm, and it is very easy to push. I can do it one handed while I hold onto my toddlers hand. We use te train alot to visit my parents and have found it good fo travelling as it stows away easily.
Overall I would recommend the Zapp as a run around buggy, or for travelling, but to be honest I wouldnt buy it again. I am just hoping that my daughter grows into it properly so that I can get my moneys worth out of it.
Summary: 3 stars
