I think it’s fairly safe to say that the Quinny Zapp totally changed the way people thought about lightweight pushchairs. The four-wheeled umbrella fold dominated and then along came the Quinny Zapp, a three wheeler that can become a travel system with a Maxi Cosi Cabriofix car seat.
Weighing a very lightweight 6kg, it is a full sized pushchair but when it folds down, it’s the worlds smallest. Light to push, light to lift, it’s in an unusual style of frame and seat for a lightweight pushchair. It even has a matching carry bag for when you go on holiday. Due to the style, weight, and swivelling front wheel, this is a really nippy number.
There is a downside to this style and that’s no storage and the seat doesn’t recline. In revolutionising lightweight pushchairs, adopting this one means that you need to forgo things that you take for granted elsewhere. As a result of the lack of recline, the pushchair is only suitable from 6 months unless you use the car seat on it and then you can use it from birth.
RRP is Â£150 and it’s Â£109.99 at So Baby. Price includes sun canopy, raincover, and adaptors for the car seat.
Ideal for: People who need to get about quickly that don’t need storage.
Bang for your style buck: Good – there’s no doubting that this is a stylish pushchair but having no storage is a sin. I also hope they bring out some new colours and fabric soon because there are an awful lot of these around. I’ll be featuring the Speedi version which does recline and has storage, imminently.
Weight range: Light.
Don’t forget that you can see other pushchairs and prams we’ve featured in our new feature The Pushchair Track.
