Rachel Zoe x Quinny and Maxi-Cosi Collection 2016

quinny-moodd-rachel15I have to admit, I am guilty of watching Rachel Zoe reality show. But, in my defense I watched it because I love fashion. Before having children Rachel Zoe could care less about kids stuff, but after her first son was born she got obsessed!

She kind of remind me of myself, because I was so into my career as a web designer I never payed attention to parenting stuff. Now, look at me, I am obsessing about every new stroller I see and have a web site about it. LOL. Funny how kids completely change us.

Since Rachel Zoe is one of the best stylist I was happy to see she decided to do a new collection for Quinny and Maxi-Cosi. This is one of the most luxurious collections I’ve seen on ABC Kids Expo 2015.

Quinny Reversible Seat Jogging Stroller Review

quinny-2016-jogger17At the ABC Kids Expo 2015 Quinny has introduced a new jogging stroller for 2016 with a reversible seat. This model, I don’t have the name, has a fixed front wheel and uses Moodd frame.

From what I heard there will be an option to switch the wheels between the models. But, I am not sure.

I have very little info about this stroller since the staff at the Quinny booth was very unhelpful. They were way too busy to show me the stroller and didn’t want to answer any questions. Also, they asked me not to touch the display model when I wanted to see how it folds so I can snap a few pictures for your guys.

When I asked for a media kit or some sort of brochure with additional info, I was told they didn’t have any, but I can leave my business card. Talking about great marketing…

Quinny Zapp Xtra Stroller Review

quinny_zapp_xtra2The Quinny Zapp Xtra is a sleek modern looking stroller that has one of the most compact folds in the WORLD! It is designed for active parents who live in an urban environment and like to travel a lot. The maneuverability on the Zapp Xtra is absolutely amazing, as long as you stay on the flat surface. It’s great for taking to the mall, shopping center, or airport. It rolls on four 6″ rubber wheels that have a wide wheel base making it very easy to navigate. It would be a one-hand push if it had one handle bar instead of two.

While it’s lightweight, it still has a reversible seat which is very unique for the stroller with such a compact fold. The seat is very roomy and has one-hand recline with three positions. The stroller can accommodate a child from birth and up to 50 lbs. You can also turn it into a travel system by using it with the car seat. The Zapp Xtra has been recently updated and now can fold with the seat attached where before you had to remove the seat before folding.

I gave this stroller 3.5 out of 5 stars because it has very small basket, just ok canopy, and non-adjustable handle bars. My main problem is the weight which is 19 lbs. It is too heavy for an umbrella stroller, but is missing some features to be a full size stroller.

In my opinion Zapp Xtra is somewhere between an umbrella and full size. It does have a very compact hold, but who is going to carry 19 lbs on their shoulder or in one hand? There are many other really light (like 11 lbs) strollers full of features that are much better for traveling and everyday use. This is just my two cents…

Quinny Moodd Stroller Review

quinny_moodd1The Quinny Moodd is a modern luxury stroller that has a unique frame and seat design. It reminds me of a cool office chair with an egg-shaped seat. LOL. This stroller is definitely a head turner! I was lucky to test the Moodd by Britto model and in real life it looks like an amazing piece of art and not a stroller. The frame and the bumper bar are all covered with bright colorful design making it stand out from the crowd. :)

Aside from sleek design, it has a reversible seat, adjustable foot rest, telescoping handle bar, double parking brake, and one-hand recline. It has easy fold and one-touch AUTOMATIC unfolding! Very innovative and inspiring. The maneuverability on the Moodd is amazing. With 12″ rear wheels and 7″ front wheel, this buggy can easily handle grass, mulch or gravel with no problems.

The Moodd is a 3-in-1 travel system that can accommodate a child from birth and up to 50 lbs.  You can turn it into a travel system by removing the seat and replacing it with an infant car seat or turn it into a pram by replacing it with a carrycot/bassinet (sold separately).
