Stroller Review: Inglesina Zippy
Filed under: Baby Essentials
The Basics: 20.7 pounds. Good from birth to 45 pounds. 21 inches at the widest point when it's unfolded. Collapses to 40 by 13 by 17 inches.
The Lowdown: The Zippy is a member of the increasingly popular lightweight plus category of strollers -- it features the compact convenience of an umbrella stroller, but is slightly larger and has a few extras. At 2 inches wide, the Zippy is narrow compared to comparable models, making it perfect for navigating crowded streets or store aisles. Dual telescoping handles make the stroller comfortable to push and are perfect for hanging a light purse on. The stroller maneuvers well, even with one-hand. The cup holder is a welcome addition, though a tad small. The seat is roomy, well-padded, and features a fully removable, washable cover.
The idea behind the Zippy is that you are getting a well-made, practical stroller that will cover all your basic daily needs and will last you for years. You're not getting the curb-scaling wheels, acres of storage space, or cutting edge design that you'll see on some models, but the Zippy is a lower price point. Plus, it is lighter and easier to fold and store than other models. If you don't foresee a need for all-terrain tires or copious amounts of storage space, the Zippy might be your best bet.
You'll Want It If: You're looking for a practical, durable stroller with just the basics.
