Quinny Zapp Flex Plus Pushchair Review


A couple of months back we were sent the Quinny Zapp Flex Plus Pushchair to review, and I was super excited to try it out. We owned a Quinny pram for Elliw, my middle child, back in 2013, so I was interested to see how updated it was and if I’d still like the pram or not. First thing, I love the fact that you can customise your pram. There’s a great choice of colours to choose from, and you can even choose your own colours. I chose the Blue on Sky shade, and I am in love with it.
The Quinny Zapp Flex Plus that I received has four wheels instead of the original three wheels that most Quinny prams have. Honestly, I prefer the four wheels, and I think it looks super stylish too.  When I received it and put it together, I was pleased with how easy and how quick it was to put together. Everything pretty much just needed to be clicked on and it wasn’t heavy as such either – which is always a bonus.

Taking it out for the first time, which was the following day after putting it together I was looking forward to seeing how it was on pavements, going up and down kerbs and round corners as we went on the school run. I was overly impressed with how easy it is to push, you can easily push the pram with just one hand, which is great if you have other children. It pushes smoothly on most grounds, which I liked.
The pushchair has a one handle, which is a little bit of a pain at times because there’s nowhere really to carry my girls’ school bags, but we have worked around it, and there have been no big problems about it. There is a basket, and although it’s a little on the small side, it is bigger than it looks. I do manage to get a lot of things into the basket with no trouble.



The hood extends when you open the zip, something I like, especially if it’s a sunny day. Freddie always loves to pull the hood wide open too. It’s really easy to open and close, you can also put it in different positions. The toddler seat is able to forward face and parent face. I think it’s always geat to have the two choices of which way you want the seat to face. Freddie sits with the seat forward facing as he loves to look around, but secretly I would love to carry on parent facing.

The Quinny pushchair has some great features:
-          The wheels are swivel which is great, but there’s also a choice to put them off swivel if you need.
-          The basket is easily accessed, even when the seat is reclined.
-          The seat reclined in different positions and also reclines all the way back.
-          The one handle helps the smooth push.
-          Very easy to fold and folds up small which is great for not taking up much room in your boot
-          The fabrics are water resistant, so they are easy to clean
Included:
-          Maxi Cosi Carseat Adapters
-          Raincover
The raincover included does cover from the top of the pram to the bottom. However, my son has been able to kick the raincover off a few times, I think because it goes in at the bottom near where the feet are. He also is able to close the hood, which makes the raincover fall a bit as you have to have the hood all the way open for the raincover to go on. But we rarely use the raincover, and it’s never been a huge problem for us.

Quinny sells many accessories for this pushchair, such as an extra shopping basket, bumper bar, seat covers and much more. These prams are suitable from birth, but you will need to buy a carrycot – which you can choose the colour of too – which is great.
PROS
-          Really smooth to push and manoeuvre
-          Wheels are swivel
-          The height is perfect for me (I’m 5foot7”)
-          Easy access to the basket
-          Seat faces both ways
-          Easy to fold and unfold
-          Seat reclines all the way down and different positions
-          Great choice of customisable colours
-          Comes with a raincover and carseat adapters
-          Stylish and modern
-          Four wheels make it looks lovely and easy to push
CONS
-          The basket is a little small, but it looks smaller than what it actually is.
-          The raincover is a little disappointing
Saying that about the raincover – it wouldn’t put me off buying the Quinny at all.

Overall, I am overly pleased with the Quinny Zapp Flex Plus pushchair. The colour is lovely, and the quality is high. It’s a brilliant pram, and it’s so smooth to push, even older babies who weigh more than younger babies. My son is 22 months old and fits perfectly fine in the seat, and he also doesn’t make the pushchair too heavy to push either.
