Quinny Zapp

Strollin': Quinny Zapp

Mommies who find themselves running more errands than a Capitol Hill page girl or boy may fancy the Quinny Zapp. Much like its posh sibling, the Zapp still boasts fabulous features, but has a few less amenities, which is why the price is a more reasonable $200.

Available in five of the same spunky hues as the Quinny Buzz, the Zapp affords tots comfort in canvas like a seat atop a lightweight aluminum frame. When it comes time to store it, the Zapp easily folds into one of the most compact strollers on the market making it a cinch to store in the car or hallway closet. Also taking hints from the Buzz, the Zapp's swiveling front wheels make it feel more like an all-terrain pushchair than an umbrella stroller.

To see what the drawbacks are of the Zapp,


While many parents may like the look of the Zapp, there are some small drawbacks to the fancy umbrella buggy. Like many umbrella strollers, it does not recline. Parents who need a stroller that can convert into a napping space may find the non-reclining feature an issue. While great for running quick errands and traveling, the storage space underneath the seat is a tad on the smaller side, which leaves shopping moms in a bind. And, due to the Zapp's weight (18.2 pounds), the stroller can't handle too much baggage hanging from the handles or else the whole structure risks tipping over.

While most umbrella strollers do not offer car seat compatibility, the Zapp does. However, like the Buzz, it is only compatible with Maxi-Cosi Mico Infant car seat. If parents should choose to use the car seat with the base, the buggy is suitable for newborns. Based on standards, the buggy is appropriate for children age six months to four-years-old or 40 pounds.

I think this stroller looks interesting. We are just starting to look into baby things. Do most parents have a travel system and an umbrella stroller? Or will just an umbrella stroller be good enough?

I spent $40 on one and got excellent quality, "extras" on it, and it folds up nice and tidy. It's not plastic or need to be replaced as she gets bigger. The weight doesn't go up quite as high as the really expensive ones, but neither of the boys needed strollers past 40 lbs anyway. We had the cheapy $10 umbrella one though and it got us through both boys. It's still in great shape, I just wanted a pink one for my daughter as well as one with a storage basket.

I agree with all of you--the money is outrageous but then in some cases are you paying for quality or are you paying because it looks cool and it's trendy?

I have this stroller. It is great for travel, it folds up into a bag and fits in the overhead bin. It hold the car seat so I can push the little one instead of lugging everything. It will be in use for years. So instead of buying the plastic-y ones that will need to be replaced as the kid gets bigger, I spent 170 bucks on one stroller. When compared to my friends they've spent more on strollers b/c the kids out grew them or they broke etc.

I agree Greggie... My last was born 13 years ago, and back then, $150 for a stroller was least to me anyway!

I need to stop reading these reviews. I obviously have a very wrong idea of "reasonable" when it comes to stroller prices.
