Stroller Review: Quinny Zapp
Filed under: Baby Essentials
The Basics: 13.2 pounds. Good from 6 months to 44 pounds. It's 25 inches at the widest point when it's unfolded. Collapses to 10 by 11 by 27 inches.
The Lowdown: If you're a family who loves to travel, you're going to flip over Quinny's Zapp. The Zapp is one of the most compact strollers on the market.
The biggest advantages the Zapp has over other strollers are its compact fold and light weight. Once fully collapsed, the Zapp is 11 inches wide and just more than two feet long -- think the size of a small roller-board suitcase. In fact, it's so small that it fits easily into airplane storage compartments and, at less than 15 pounds, it's easy to hoist the stroller over your head. It even comes with a travel bag. That said, collapsing the stroller does take some getting used to and requires two hands and multiple steps.
What we dislike about this stroller is the storage capacity and the limitations of its seat. This stroller has virtually no storage; the bottom basket a tight fit for even a small diaper bag. Since the stroller is so light, it is impossible to hang even the lightest bag on the back handles without the stroller tipping over. The seat of the stroller is comfortable for older children, but it doesn't recline at all. It's not suited for children younger than six months, and children are forced to nap upright.
You'll Want It If: You've got a slightly older child and a family that loves to travel.
