I needed a second buggy for my 13 month old daughter as my silver cross pop had so many faults on it. I had seen people with the petite star Zia and liked the design and wheels on it, but after reading various negative reviews I was unsure if I made the right choice in buying it(to the point where it nearly went back to the shop or to be sold on ebay!)But i got to say Iam very pleased with it only had a week but much prepher it from my silver cross. My daughter is very comfy in it,the suspension is great, it is lovely to push. Some people commented on various faults that they have had with the zia, whether they have improved the design and corrected the faults, but I have got to say, up to now I have had no problems. The pushchair has not tipped over when I have put my changing bag on it or shopping(not like my silver cross!) The wheel has not come off when gone up and down kurbs. The seating unit has not gone foward when my daughter has been sat up in it.Although the rain cover could be of better quality, I have managed to put the rain cover over the bottom of the pushchair with out any trouble by puting the velco straps quite tight around the back. I am happy with the recline postion on the pushchair, although it is a bit flumsy than other pushchairs with recline postion.
Overall i would defintely reccomend to a friend. Please dont be put off buying the zia because of the other reviews, every pushchair have their faults,and if it was such a hope less or rubish product it would have not won although those rewards. Definately worth the money and both my husband and myself love it!
