Too many options!
I was totally sold on the zia, but then I read some reviews and now I am not so sure.
But then, the reviews for the Verve are no betterhmm
I have a Zapp but it is DDs old one and Bright Pink. DS doesn't really suit it wink
So I could just get new covers for it, but the covers are almost as much as a new pram!shock
Though the reviews aren't really that good, for the zapp either, which leads me to think the reviews aren't probably worth worrying about because it did me just fine for DD.

What should I do?
What would you do?

Zia zia zia! I have one and it's fab. Really lightweight and easy to put up and down - much easier than Zapp plus babbins can recline when they have a sleep which my DD loves. I bought one and now all my mummy friends have them too. I got mine from - good price, free delivery and loads of points!

That is good to hear. So many people are down on the Zia. I think it looks great and so similar to the zapp that I don't see any prob with the whole tipping issue, but is the zia really more prone to it??

Mine has only tipped or nearly tipped a couple of times but I had SO much shopping on the back I was expecting it. Plus my DD only weighs 20 lbs so it served me right. I've had it a year and no problems at all. Plus the wheels are quick releasing so if you want to take them off to make it even smaller for travel you can. Easy peasy!

There are only so many reviews you can read before you are frightened to buy anything!
Yippee, a new pram!!grin

i have a zia and purchased it to have a reclining lightweight buggy for the car when DS is bigger (he's only 13wks).

Once it arrived I realised the zapp had to go as there were more advantages to the zia than zapp. You can always change the covers on the zia if you get bored!
