The Babyzen ZEN is a 3 wheeled stroller which we reviewed with the carrycot. The ZEN is designed to go on any grounds. The stroller is extremely smooth to push and the handlebar can go in 3 different positions with the side buttons. My partner and I are quite tall and I did find the handle a bit too low. The stroller is perfect on all grounds such as a bumpy pavement, grass and perfect for family adventures. The stroller comes with a basket, which I think is a little on the small side if you have more than one child, but other wise it is an ok size.
The unique multi-position bassinet is the only bassinet that is certified as a bassinet, seat and bouncer all in one. The 3 positions are: flat, semi-seated and seated. The mattress on the bassinet is thick and comfortable for your little ones, along with it's 5 point harness to keep babies safe. The bassinet is suitable from birth to 6 months of age. From 6+ months the seat is put as a world facing stroller and there is a 3 position back rest. The seat and the canopy fold with the frame so there is no hassle taking the stroller apart.
Babyzen ZEN is the first and only stroller with a headlight which is activated by some buttons on the handle bar. This is perfect for safety if you are going for a walk in the evenings when the sun's gone down. This stroller is available in 5 colours: black, blue, pink, grey and red. The frame is available in black or red.
OVERALL: I have loved reviewing this Babyzen ZEN stroller. It's a really stylish stroller and I love the large bassinet and large hood. Freddie always looks snug when he in the bassinet. We have tested the stroller out on our walks and on the school runs. I did find it a little heavy sometimes when I've had to hold one of the girls hands and the other hand to push the stroller. However, it is one of the smoothest stroller I have pushed. The wheels are great quality and perfect on different grounds.
I have struggled to get used to folding the frame down and place the bassinet back on to the frame. I also wish the basket was a bit bigger as I do think there is a bit of room to make it a tad bigger than what it is. Otherwise, the stroller has been fantastic. I've had a few good comments about the stroller - especially with the headlights as not many people have seen them before. I would recommend this stroller if you are a family who like going out for walks and want a suitable pram that goes smooth on most grounds.
