1.Heavy- not good for new mums backs and stomach lifting in and out of a car
2.Does not click into place for lie flat for newborns after complaining I was told it was a 'design feature'. It will change seat position from lie flat to sitting up if tipped forwards (going up a hill)
3. Expensive- I had mine for 7 weeks before the right hand side started collapsing and had to be sent off for repair which will take 2-6 weeks
4. No customer service. I sent an email containing the above complaints to quinny a week and a half ago and have had no response
5. Only has a 28day guarantee which does not work if you buy your pram more than 28 days before your baby is due.
6. Bulky, does not fold up small
7. It is however very stylish and I do enjoy the look of the baby cocoon which my son also finds very snug.Read moreLess
"I've had the moodd for 7 weeks now and have…"
I've had the moodd for 7 weeks now and have used it with both my 3 yr old and my newborn. In short I'm really impressed.
Looks wise it's rather like the posh cousin of the buzz, but having had both there are very few further similarities. The frame is either black or white (I've got black) and the coloured seat options go from vibrant to neutral. I have the blue as when I saw it I loved the vibrancy and depth of the colour.
It does make of the use of the buzz automatic unfold, but the fold down is easier as needs to be done from standing behind the pushchair rather than in front. There's evens strap to ensure it stays closed when lifting it.
The seat unit is amazing. Very stylish and goes from lie flat to upright in both forward and parent facing modes over the 3 settings. It also comes with a baby nest which is like a mini footmuff for babies. This is where there is both some of the best and the worst design. The bad first is the button on the front which holds it down. It's in the wrong place on the newborn setup so my sons head is covered unless I fold the excess inside and don't fully do the zip up. Once he is taller and goes to the older baby setting I'm sure it will be fine.
The great bit of design are the head and foot huggers which neatly zip into the nest so they stay in position but an be removed as baby grows older. Sounds a minor thing but it's these sort of things where the quality and thought really stands out.
For older children the seat is spacious, easy to adjust and the footrest is big enough to accommodate most children's legs. Having the parent facing mode going in a fully upright position is another big plus over the buzz as it allows them to be parent facing a lot longer as certainty my first son didn't like it when he couldn't sit completely upright in the buzz once he got to around a yr old.
The basket isn't great as it is pretty shallow, but I have managed to get the rain over, the babynest and a toddler winter coat in there so it could be worse.
Talking of the rain cover. It is fabulous and the best I have ever seen for a pushchair. It slips over the frame really easily and isn't fully plastic, it has black fabric down by the footrest and over the hood. This gives me the impression that it is likely to last well and is far easier to put on than any other one I've ever tried.
Using the pushchair has been a dream. It glides along and makes really light work of the pavement mountains we regularly tackle where matured trees are lifting the pavement. The wheel base is fairly wide but not the worst I've had. It's so easy to move around with the adjustable handlebar which makes shopping a breeze. The large rear wheels also help when not on nice smooth pavements.
This is a full travel system if you go for the optional extras. Being a quinny it takes the maxi cosi car seats as adapters are included. There is also a folding carrycot if you would rather have your newborn unrestrained when being pushed around at a young age.
All in all a nearly perfect pushchair though for an rrp ofRead moreLess
