Am looking to get a new pushchair for ds who is just 6 months.
Atm we have an old Quinny 3XL freestyle that we used for dd but it is rather heavy and a bit battered.
We've also been using a Graco thing but that really is battered. The wheel fell off yesterday
Sooooo, I had my eye on a Quinny Zapp but to my horror, they dont have a shopping basket and I would quite like a tray on it for when he's a bit bigger although its not a must.
I also dont want anything too big or heavy and it must fit a seat to go on it too.
I had a zapp from when dd was about 9 months - it was great for about 6 months but when she got to the point where she wanted to get out of it a lot I found it a bit of a pain because it couldn't take any weight on the back and got a bit fed up with putting it up and down. The lack of shopping basket was also an issue.
However I think you can now get baskets for them - have seen some with them. Also if you don't do loads of walking I think it would be quite good. Would they fit a seat to go ?
I got a bog standard maclaren - a triumph and it has been great. I wish in hindsight, I'd just continued with the Pliko we had till dd was a bit older and then just got the maclaren.
It was more that it tipped VERY easily so there was virtually nowhere to put bags/shopping etc. Also didn't feel very sturdy tbh. But, a lot of people love them so might just be me !!
I thought it was great for the period we had it for, when dd was about 8 or 9 months to about 13 months, but then I tried a maclaren on hols and it was sooo much better - also light and dont' take up much room (although longer) and far easier to put up and down. DD is now 2.1 and I took her on the train today and our station has loads of steps and it was great as I just folded up the buggy, shoved it over my shoulder and held dd's hand up the steps. And they recline (depending on which one you get how much they recline).
Agree wtih trace that from 6 months the techno would be great. I think the triumph which I have, wouldn't be that great from 6 months although they can be used then. The techno reclines more and is more comfy (but then a bit heavier). The quest is inbetween the 2 in terms of reclining/comfort/weight) - I'd probably go for the quest all things considered....
But then I'm not a buggy addict so there may be something mroe whizzy and new around !!
