Pushchair is very easy to assemble and folds down and pops up easily. Gorgeous design. (I have the pink fizz zia) Very light to carry which is a bonus for lifting in and out the car. It also folds quite small. Has adjustable handle height. Feels sturdy when my daughter is in the stroller and is very light to push.Just and alrounder really. Cant fault at all :) (read more)

I have just bought the zia4x and am so pleased with it. However I can not comment on durability as it is new. It feels much sturdier than I anticipated based on its weight And following the reviews of children tipping the buggies I have gone for More stable zia 4 rather than just Zia as the front wheels are a bit more spaced Out, all the tipping complaints are from the Zia, it is a light weight Triangular shaped buggy that needs its main weight at the back, if the heavy child leans...

I've bought the new model the Zia X and we are very pleased with the Zia. The suspension is amazing for a lightweight stroller! My daughter really enjoys sitting in the stroller, she looks very comfortable. The adjustable handles are amazing too! Dad can push the stroller too with a straight back. My baby can look out when the canopy is closed but I do find it hard to look in from above so the see through mesh doesn't function very well as a peek a boo window in my opinion. I was surprised...

I have searched high and low for a stroller that was compact, easy to handle like my Bugaboo was but more convenient and compact when folded. After much searching I decided to go for the Petite Zia X. When I got the pram home I loved it, the colour was bright and the spotted hood and liner really set the pram off. After having this stroller for only 4days, my 21month old daughter was sat in it and leaned forward, to my horror the whole stroller tipped up and came down on top of her with her... (read more)

Petite Star Zia 3 wheeler - best stroller. I bought this stroller over a year and a half ago and its still going strong. I was a bit worried when I saw the many and varied negative comments about it, but can honestly say that my daughter has never tipped it up, the wheels have never come off and it is pretty sturdy for a stoller certainly much better then maclarens or other such four wheeled umbrella fold strollers which all of my friends have. My daughter is now just over two and average... (read more)

I have just brought this pushchair for my just turning 2 year old little girl. She is quite tall for her age and has now outgrown her pram so needed a little, easy to manage pushchair to get around. As she likes to walk but still gets tired.

I was given this for my 2 yr old after her 3 yr old grew out of it. Got to say I'm not impressed with the very low handle bars or the tiny basket underneath!
It's not very sturdy and I don't feel safe pushing it.
The only good points I have are the size, the seat is deep enough for my toddler to sit in it comfortably and it's easy to manoeuvre without taking too much room up in shops/on public transport. (read more)

We purchased the Zia Plus in January for our 15 month old daughter. I have had several other makes of buggy in the past and this is the best by far. It is very light and small which leaves room in the boot. It collapses very simply. The raincover is extremely easy to fit (especially if it's pouring down on you!). It has a good size seat and reclines nicely if she goes to sleep. The Zia Plus also boasts handles that can be extended (handy for my 6ft husband). The ONLY negative is that if... (read more)

My son is now 22 months and I've found it doesn't quite sit up far enough for him any more, but he does walk most places now and only really uses this pram for a nap anyway so it isn't really a problem.

Petit Star Zia 4: I LOVE this pram. I wanted something really small and light and this is perfect. It easily slips into the boot of my micra, slots neatly into my tiny hall cupboard and is easy to collapse and assemble. It's very easy to maneuverer and I never worry about how much space I'm taking up in shops, cafes or on the street. The cocoon is easy to attach for my newborn and she seems very comfortable in it. The only minor complaint and the reason it didn't get 5 stars is that the... (read more)

I bought this pushchair when my son was 18 months, as our previous pushchair had to be retired. It was recommended to me by a friend, and I wasn't disappointed.
It's extremely light, with excellent suspension, there is plenty of space for my now two year old son, who is very tall. It seems comfortable, it's very easy to fold and it's easy to clean.
The handles are a little low, the shopping basket is quite small, and the raincover is a bit annoying, but those are minor flaws.

I have had the Petite Star Zia for about 18 months and am happy with it on the whole. My son seems to be comfortable in it and falls asleep quite happily. The recline mechanism is a bit fiddly but fine once you get used to it and better than the quinny zapp which doesn't recline at all. My main problem with the buggy is the rain cover which is totally useless. I don't know if it has been improved since I bought it but my son kicks it off as soon as I put it on. Oh, and the wheels have fallen... (read more)

I've bought a Petite Star Zia as it fits in the boot of my Mazda MX-5 and it is fantastic! It is so easy to fold up and down, is compact and fairly light, easy to steer and has quick-release wheels (should you need this). My son seems to enjoy it as he goes to sleep quite quickly (a good sign) as it reclines nicely which a lot of the smaller pushchairs/strollers do not do.
