I have a bit of a stroller addiction, and I’ve been lusting for a Quinny Zapp since I first saw one in person several months ago.
QuinnyZapp4So needless to say, I was psyched at the opportunity to try one out. It’s an incredible lightweight stroller at only 16 pounds, and one that I can recommend with no hesitation at all.
The sleek, European design makes the Zapp easy on the eyes, and it’s equally easy to maneuver. Just this morning I ventured out in the drizzling rain with the Zapp (and its included rain cover), and I had no problem pushing it with one hand and holding my umbrella with the other. The extra large canopy also keeps my little guy out of the sun on nicer days. The seat is larger than you find in most umbrella-style strollers. I also love that it’s compatible with the Maxi-Cosi infant seat, turning the whole deal into a lightweight travel system.
Also worth mentioning is the Zapp’s compact fold—the smallest on the market—which makes it the perfect stroller for traveling. I seriously love mine (and love the fun, bright colors that are available) and have already recommended it to several people. My sister-in-law has a Quinny Buzz that she also adores, so I think it’s safe to say that Quinny puts out a good product.
The Zapp is an umbrella stroller, so it is lacking some features that you would get from a full-size stroller—a reclining seat being one—but it is a stroller designed for quick trips or travel use, and it definitely does the job. At $220 it’s a little pricier than other models, but if you’re willing to pay a little more in the name of style, the Quinny Zapp is the way to go. And it’s an investment that will last you well into the toddler years and possibly beyond, so if you’re looking for a long-term lightweight ride for your kiddos, the Zapp is a good one to look to.
