After going through three pushchairs in 7 months I am now happy with my new Quinny Buzz 4. I had always like the look of the original Quinny but didn't want a 3 wheeler due to hearing stories about them toppling over easily. I have also been using a maxi cosi cabriofix car seat and my main requirement was that I could use it as part of a travel system.
When the Quinny Buzz 4 came out I was keen to get one as it ticked all of my boxes.
I find it very easy to manouvre and my son loves being in it and looks really snug. It also comes with an extra large seat to use when your child is over 18 months old. This is also something I thought was very innovative. It is rather heavy and I must admit that it is a struggle to fit it in the boot of my Fiesta. With the seat unit it does take up about a third of the room in the large boot of a Mondeo. However the large wheels do clip off easily and make it slightly more compact.
As for folding and unfolding, I think it is very simple. The folding can take a little bit of practice but to unfold it just springs up automatically when you release a clip (watch your fingers though!).
The seat unit isn't advised to be used from birth but a carrycot attachment is available. The seat unit can be used rearward or forward facing and has various recline positions. I find the flattest recline to be extremely good compared to some other pushchairs I have used.
A shopping basket, parasol and footmuff is available to buy separately and this does increase the cost of the Buzz but they are no means a necessity. A raincover and a Buzz box (changing bag) is included. I find the Buzz box great for keeping a few nappies, wipes, bibs and muslins in but it isn't roomy enough to put in very much else.
Overall I love the Buzz 4 and up until now I have not yet seen someone else with one while I have been out and about. This system isn't the kind I would throw into the car to nip to the shops (in this case I just use my Maclaren Quest) because it is pretty cumbersome and can be troublesome fitting it down the aisles of some smaller stores but if you do a lot of walking and want something sturdy and funky then the Buzz 4 fits the bill.
