Hey smile
Please help!!
I am finding it sooo hard to make a decision on a stroller for my 16 month old! I have a Joolz Day pram/pushchair and love it, but it's huge and I need a lightweight, small folding one now my DS is growing up.
I originally wanted a Quinny Zapp but they don't recline (that's the only problem I have with it), the Zapp Xtra reclines but the frame and seat unit fold separately which isn't what I am looking for.
Then I opened up the search and now I am confused!! Cosatto, maclaren, mamas and papas!!! Endless.
Looking for some advice please ladies!! Xxx

I have used the Mammas and papas Tour buggy which since my Dd was 16 months old. Lovely and lightweight, folds well but I'm not keen on the recline if I'm honest as its a cord type style, much prefer the ones where you click and drop the back of the seat (if that makes sense).

If funds were no issue I really wanted the Maclaren buggy. But also found a great cheapy on Amazon, the Zeta Voom. My friend got this as no complaints from her so far!?

I previously had a lovely Chicco buggy, sturdy, full recline, footmuff included etc but it only lasted 3 months...definitely wouldnt buy one again hmm

We bought a maclaren quest for a couple of months ago for our 15 month old. We adore it and haven't used the bugaboo since. We got the quest as it has the extended leg bit and reclines right back so is super comfy for him to sleep in. In fact he sleeps better in it than he did the bugaboo. It is light and folds in one piece with a really good recline I can't fault it.

Our 18 month old is in a petit star zia. Folds in one peice and reclines. Got it for quick in n outs like if I'm bobbing to one shop and as it only cost me £15 off eBay I can't grumble

Hi Florin!
That's the one I was looking at just now- maclaren quest sport, it does look lovely. It has mixed reviews, but then everything does!! What's it like on rougher ground and gravel??
I'm thinking of going to the baby show at Olympia in a couple of weeks to try some out.
Thanks xx

Geniene, there will be a new Zapp Xtra which folds as a one piece if that helps. I think it will be out early in the new year. Have a look at the new Oyster Gem, and also I am loving my Graco Evo Mini. The Baby Joggers are always a good bet too.

Hi, Tiggywunkle, thanks for that. I had pretty much decided on the Maclaren BMW, which is super cool......but now you've mentioned the new Zapp Xtra, that sounds awesome. I don't know why they didn't do that in the first place. I'm sure they've lost some sales because of it.
Now I have to think again! haha!!!
