I got the quinny zapp Xtra for my then 19 month old daughter 4 months ago, i hate this buggy, its seat unit is so small my daughter has now outgrown it already, it is so low it gives me back ache and im not that tall 5'5, it is so stiff to fold down i have to kick it to shut, i cant hang anything on the handle or i end up kneeing it while i walk, the basket is basically non existent i keep the rain over in it but that's all i can get in it, the rain cover itself doesn't fit properly as it is...

I bought the quinny zapp for my little girl as its a nice looking, small, lightweight stroller, howvever when I used it my views changed. My little girl is 15 months old and adverage size, & she looked to big for it when she sat inside, when I tried to get her in the pushchair was tipping backwords, and was not stable at all! When I was in town she was sqeeling to get out as she was so un-comfy, and then she fell asleep in it and because it doent even recline a tiny bit she was all slumped &... (read more)

The manoverability is good and it folds down well but as with our quinny speedi the strap adjustment is totaly useless unless you feed your baby junkfood every day and it is seriously overweight dont buy this. our little fellah was constantly slipping out of it and needing lifted back into place, we tryed using numerous cussions to wedge him in but to no avail. if it wasnt for the size it folded to it would be a total waste of time. 2 stars (read more)

We bought the Quinny Zapp Xtra because we wanted a lightweight, collapsable stroller for flights, but still prioritised the option of a parentfacing seat what could be reclined for our baby's naps. But in parentfacing position the seat can not be set fully upright and our baby is not comfortable lying down when awake. We ordered the stroller online, Mothercare did not have it in store, and the sales person in the store clearly hadn't seen it irl. She did not inform us that the seat is not... (read more)

I bought this pram as i wanted something compact & light now my daughter is getting to big for her quinny buzz. I bought the zapp as i love my buzz & thought it would be a good trade off. Well its lovely to push & it looks great however when my child wanted a nap it was awfull. no recline ment her neck & her were bent over & she looked very uncomfortable. I would not reccomend this pram if your child has a tendancy to fall asleep while out & about.
It folds down really small which is... (read more)

The good things about this Quinny Zapp buggy is that it folds really small and very light, lovely to push it takes the corners beautifully and looks smart too. I wouldnt say its any good for everyday use.
Bad points are that there is NO storage space what so ever and are not able to hang anything on the handles, even says on the box you cant put anything on there. Bit of a pain to fold up, very tricky to get the hang of. Does not lay down or recline at all so not very comfortable when... (read more)

The Quinny Zapp is an excellent pushchair, I never thought I would say this about the Zapp but it is.
Firstly it folds small enough to fit into an easy to carry bag, and its not really difficult to fold it either.
Secondly it is fantastic to push, very light and turns very easily, even using one hand!
Obviously the Zapp does not have any reclining positions but i found this not to be a problem, I purchased the Zapp when my little boy turn 12 months old and he fit the pushchair perfectly and... (read more)

I love that the Quinny Zapp has gorgeous colours, is very attractive and different looking, is sturdy (aluminium frame), has nice padded long straps, is easy to remove and clean covers, is very compact when folded, (although it IS a two hand fold and it takes some getting used to),comes with a raincover and a storage bag for easy travelling (we have even taken it on board the cabin for some trips, it fits in most overhead compartments), its VERY easy to manouver and although it has small...

I am very happy with my Quinny Zapp, I have had no less than 20 prams/buggys over the past few years. I am surprised by the amount of negative comments from people complaining about the no recline, I mean that is clearly stated before you buy! It has gorgeous colours, very attractive, sturdy, nice padded straps, easy to clean covers, very easy to fold and unfold, very compact when folded, lovely storage bag for easy travelling and keeping buggy clean. Easy to manoever. (read more)

I like the Quinny Zapp quite alot, I needed a small pushchair that wasn't heavy to push (as I have back problems) and lightweight and this fitted the bill perfectly! Its bad points are that it doesnt recline and my little boy would love it to for his naps. I have been considering a Petite Star Zia pushchair as its almost excatly the same except it does recline, but having read the reviews on here, I do not think I will bother now as altho it reclines it does not allow baby to sit up straight...

The next step after pushchairs are strollers. Babies love them as they can see in front of them when being pushed around. We went for Quinny Zapp, one of the lightest strollers on the market, easily folded and the most compact you can imagine. It is true that the seat does not recline, but Isabelle used to fall asleep in it without any problems and did not look uncomfortable. I would recommend this stroller to parents who travel a lot.

When I first got the Zapp for my son I was delighted with the style and seemingly sturdy build but after a few months it all went wrong.
The brakes were the first thing to go, they didn't click off fully so would rattle round the wheel and eventually couldn't walk 5 minutes without the brake jamming on and tipping the buggy forward.
The center of gravity is so bad that you can't even hang a tiny change bag on the back without the whole thing falling backwards.
The seat doesn't recline so it... (read more)

I borrowed the quinny zapp from my sister as my car seat fitted on and it was easy to use after a c section. In this mode it's brilliant the only thing I would say is that I find it quite unstable as it can tip back easily propelling the baby face first towards the floor in their carseat (even with nothing on the handles) Always ensure the handle of the carseat is up just incase this happens.
My sister was disappointed with it as a buggy as the seat doesn't recline and my nephew outgrew it... (read more)

The Quinny Zapp is only suitable for small journeys and I can't take it shopping cause can't hang bags on it, the raincover seems a shockingly bad fit. If you buy the bag the basket etc to go with it you end up spending an absolute fortune on this and I just don't think it's worth it at all. I would only recommend this if you have extra cash to spend on another pushchair for when you get fed up with it tipping backwards and waiting for ages for it to unfold! (read more)

this buggy looks fantastic-pushes so brilliantly-lightweight and smooth.the only things are that they have no basket to put things in,although I bought one from ebay and its fab! it does feel a little flimsy to me but it is very nice and my daughter likes it-but it doesn't recline for a toddler to nap. I feel it is a lot of money for not much except good looks. (read more)

This is my 5th pushchair in 18 months! I have owned a Bebe Confort Loola, Graco Mosaic, Out and About Nipper 360, Phil & Ted Sport and now the Quinny Zapp. No pram does everything. I use my P&T for long days out, my 360 for long walks outside. The quinny zapp does what it says on the box. It is great for being lightweight and nipping in and out of town quickly, picking up older kids from school, a short walk to the shops and for travel. No, it wont recline, if you look at it before you... (read more)

The Zapp is from Quinny which have an excellent reputation for quality. There are some great deals around at the moment on this buggy. I couldn't find it cheaper than £99.79 for the buggy or £109.99 for the buggy with the travel or carry bag. (read more)

A carry bag would be useful. I really like my zap Quinny. It does what it looks like it should. Its great for whizzing around the mall and I hang my bag on it with care.

Generally I'm pretty pleased with the Quinny Zapp pushchair. I have twin 2 year olds and the double buggy is a nightmare to travel with, so if my partner comes with me we take 2 of these instead - they fold up small enough to fit in the boot, and still leave lots of room for shopping / luggage etc.
My toddlers are tall / heavy for their age, so the light weight of the pushchair (7kg) means that it's still pretty easy to push them around if necessary. Neither chair has tipped yet, and I hang... (read more)

Very nippy & good looking but cannot stow anything on handlebars as tips with slightest weight. No net bag provided. Raincover doesn't seem to fit & is stretched so tightly and precariously that thrashing child can remove it. I bought the cosytoes which is like a mummy bag, very cosy but an absolute trial to get on and adjust to fit child. I didn't use the buggy on the aeroplane as it doesn't clip together when folded, unlike the more basic buggies. Also after six months of use, stage 3 of... (read more)

The Quinny Zapp is a very stylish and light pushchair. It works well with the maxi cosi car seat, and stores neatly in the bag.
However, it is awkward to assemble and put away. With a growing child it then becomes impractical, with no storage or abilty to recline. It looks good, but has limited usability. (read more)

Now our child has reached 7 months we decided it would be a good idea to have a smaller lighter pushchair for general use.
We still have the Big Mommas and Popas which is ideal for bag storage, lying flat etc, but it takes up huge amounts of room in the boot. The Quinny Zap is ideal for babies who can sit up un aided and have good head control, as it has a more upright seating position. Our daughter actually slept being pushed all the way up to the becon on Malvern hill and back down... (read more)

I love my Quinny Zapp. It looks fantastic and you can go absolutely anywhere with it. I do not find the folding mechanism difficult to use and can, in fact, do it with one hand. The lack of a basket is a problem but there is now a fab lady manufacturing and selling brill baskets on eBay.
Whether or not your child will sleep in it is down to the child as it does not lay flat, but I do not personally find it to be a problem.
It folds down so small, even with the eBay lady's basket, that it... (read more)

The Quinney Zapp is perfect for travel and quick trips to the malls. Lack of storage prevents big shopping sprees although I have larger strollers for this purpose. I also don't use my Zapp for long walks outdoors since I have a jogging stroller for these. The Zapp is ideal as a second stroller. (read more)

I thought the Quinny Zapp pushchair would be ideal, as it fits into the boot of a people carrier without a problem, and it even fits into my mums beetle! The raincover really doesn't fit, and every time my daughter moves it, it comes off. It is far too lightweight, and one move from my 3 year old and it tips over. You can't even hang a light changing bag on it. I wouldn't recommend this at all! (read more)

The Quinney Zappo desn't lay flat. My 6-month old baby won't sleep in it and seems to be hunched over in it's semi-upright position. Nowhere to store anything although changing bag just about hangs on the handle bars. I can't get any accessories to fit it - parasols, buggy toys, buggy bags - none of these fit on the handles and it's very frustrating! (read more)

The Quinney Zapp buggy gets lots of admiring glances and is fantastic to take on holiday due to the weight and how small it folds. The hood is large and shades well from the sun. But the lack of shopping net is a pain, added to that any bags hung on the back make it tip, even with my 15 month old daughter in it! A bag for the raincover would have been handy as I ended up having to stuff it into my changing bag and it takes up a lot of room. The folding mechanism is awkward and takes a lot of... (read more)
