About the reviewer: Mother of 2 Short Title: Simple, easy to use buggy Overall Verdict: Nice easy to use buggy Best Feature: Very easy to open and close Worst Feature: Handles too low down Review: As a Mum of 2 girls (5 & 1) I have been through a fair few buggies!!lol I think the most I have had at any one time is 4….I am always searching for 1 that ticks all the boxes, needs to recline, needs a decent sized and easy to access basket, and easy to apply raincover and obviously needs to push like a dream. The Petite Star Zia doesnt quite tick all the boxes but is pretty close. Its got a lovely sized seat, easy to use buckle and straps are easy to adjust. The seat reclines although shame the mechanism to do this is rather fiddly! the basket is great and raincover simple enough to use. Brakes are easy to apply and release and it pushes nicely. My only real complaint seems to be a common one, the handles are far to low down! I am only 5ft 6 but find them too low! Other than this it certainly gets the thumbs up!!
About the reviewer: mother of one Short Title: Comfy, compact and easy to push Overall Verdict: Very Good Best Feature: Very easyto push Worst Feature: the buckle for releasing the back Review: This stroller is great for newborns and toddlers. The back lies flat for newborns and sleeping toddlers. The problem i found is that i struggle sometimes with the buckle button to loosen the straps to make the back flat but generally it is a great pram. It is not an umbrella fold which i love as it fits in the car boot easily. I can unfold it with one hand. It is not very heavy so easy to lift and i found it incredibly easy to go over curbs and bumps. I can also push it with one hand without any problems. My daughter is quite tall and heavy but she is comfy in it and i have no problems at all pushing it even with the shopping on.
About the reviewer: mother of one and expecting Short Title: not one of my best purchases Overall Verdict: not very happy Best Feature: the seat reclines Worst Feature: not easy as child gets bigger Review: i purchased this pushchair when my daughter was 2 months old to take abroad and keep in car as it was nice and light, sadly my daughter never fitted properly, i have just sold mine as my daughter is 2 and half and it got hard to push because of weight which i have also heard other mums complain about.
About the reviewer: Mum of 3 Short Title: Fantastic, light, small Review: Bought this for my third child and wish it was available when I had my first. It’s light, easy to steer, lays flat so ideal for younger kiddies who like a sleep and it also folds up quite small so doesn’t take up the space of a suitcase in the boot like some prams. Would highly recommend
About the reviewer: Mother of two boys – aged 3 and 1 Short Title: Brilliant buggy – a must have for all mums Review: We bought this pushchair as a compact and lightweight buggy for our holiday to France later this year. Having used it for about 5 weeks now I have to say I absolutely LOVE it and considering I am a pushchair-a-holic I can’t believe I haven’t bought one sooner! It folds up very small (it easily fits in the boot of our Ford S-Max even when all 7 seats are up) and it’s a dream to push. We’ve even put a buggy board on it and you can hardly feel you’re pushing 2 toddlers it’s so light. Would definitely recommend this buggy, I can’t see me using any other pushchair ever again!!
Short Title: i should have saved my money and bought the Petite Star Zia first! Review: What a fantastic lightweight pushchair! i have had this pushchair about 12 months now and i still love it. for the first 12 months of my son’s life we went through 4 buggies/prams/travel systems and then i stumbled on the Petite Star Zia. i wish we would have found out about this from the begining. It’s stylish; lightweight and easy to push. My little boy looks comfy in there too as it is designed to recline. this product has nothing but positive comments from me and a big thumbs up!
Short Title: great for holidays! Review: its really light, folds so small (easy to get in the boot of my mini with rrom to spare!), lies flat for tiny babys and sleepy heads and has a little basket (just right size for babys bag). i wouldnt use it everyday as a main pushchair(but then thats not what we bought it for) i would say it mostly gets used for holidays, stays at grandpaents and quick trips into town. i have had it about a year and have found the heavier my little man gets (hes 2 but big for his age) it does seem to be lowering more but still feels safe. the wheel has fallen of once but i realised i has cought the clip on the curb whilst walking and buming down the curb. its never been a problem again. the raincover doent give much foot room for toddlers as its quite close to where their feet are but i havent found this a big issue as i tend to take his shoes off if i put the cover over so hes worked out either keep your feet still or get damp toes!:) Its not built for tall people, im 5’6″ and its perfect for me! but husband is 5’8″ and its a little low for him (he tends to use our big main pushchiar anyway). all in all its a good little run around but not for everyday use. fab to chuck in the boot and pop to grandparents. i have it in black and have a bright red fleecy cosytoes and always get comments on how small and fab it looks! oh and my dad loves it too. he has arthritis and finds this very easy to put up down and to push.
About the reviewer: Mother of 21 month old Short Title: Broke within 3 months Review: when I first got this pram I thought it was amazing. It did everything I wanted.
That was until the wheel fell off on the way home. Mothercare were fab and sent it off for repair and it was back within 10 days. Sadly thought it was returned in a worse state than it was sent! I ended up having to have a new (different) pram as it was so badly damaged.
Mothercare said theve had nothing but trouble with little star in the past 6 months
About the reviewer: Mother of a 5 year old and newborn Short Title: Fab lightweight pushchair Review: I wanted a small lightweight pushchair to take on holiday wit us. I couldn’t find any that I could use from birth, that wasn’t heavy or large and would fold down tiny to go on a plane, until I came across this one! It so easy to use, folds down very small, is extremely light and the baby is quite happy in it. It comes with a raincover and I bought the fleecy cosytoes and buggy bag as extra, but they weren’t too pricey. It even folds down with the cosytoes still in it, my Maclaren buggy doesn’t. I now keep it in the car incase I need to pop to the shops and don’t want to lug around my large Silver Cross. The only quibble with it is that it may not be suitable for fidgety toddlers as it is very light and the toddler could topple it if they were rather boisterous. All in all, a great little puschair and at a reasonable price too.
About the reviewer: Mum to a 2 yo Short Title: Terrible Buggy Review: This buggy was bought on the recommendation of a friend. I initially wanted the Quinny Zapp but was told this was better. I wish i hadnt of listened. This was purchased Dec07 and we only really got 3 months use before it started going down hill. It became so hard to push, if you hit a stone whilst out walking, the buggy could vitually topple and buckle, The handles are so low that if you are over 5’6, you will struggle. The raincover is awful, just flies off if your lo just touches it. The wheels squeak so embarrassingly loud.The biggest waste of money. Yes, it is attractive and the fact it reclines is fab, but believe me, the bad points far outweigh the good. Please, please consider and look around before you waste your money on this.
About the reviewer: Mother of 3 Short Title: Great pushchair Review: This is a great little pushchair. It’s light and easy to use. I found the Quinny footmuff was better than the Zia one as the Zia one doesnt zip all the way up like the quinny one and it fits just the same.
I do have a couple of complaints about it though! I was on my way back from a friends house when the back wheel came off. I was alone with my 1 year old (in the pushchair) and a tired 2 and half year old and was completely stuck. It happened suddenly with no warning that anything was wrong. When i took it back to the store i bought it from she told me it was quite a regular thing, people bringing them back with a missing back wheel! Just be careful. Also my husband is 6ft and the handles are a little low for him.
Other than the wheel problem it’s a lovely, wide seated pushchair thats lightweight, small and easy to handle.
About the reviewer: Mother of one Short Title: Must have lightweight stroller Review: Fantastic stroller! Lightweight and very easy to use!! I bought this pushchair 1 month ago as I found my Quinny Buzz a bit too large, cumbersome etc and now I love it. My daughter is very comfortable and loves being able to sit forward and see the world, then once she looks like she needs a sleep I can recline the back – the best of both worlds. It is very easy to fold down and lightweight to lift in the boot of the car. Only a couple of small criticisms – the basket is difficult to access especially when the back is fully reclined and my daughter kicks off the bottom of the raincover (although it mostly stays in place).
As I already own the Quinny Buzz I nearly bought the Zapp however after reading the reviews (mostly negative) I amd glad I opted for the Zia. It is a fantastic lightweight stroller and does exactly what a lightweight stroller should do!
About the reviewer: Mum of one Short Title: Am a buggy-aholic!!!! Review: Am on buggy number 4 so far but i think this is THE ONE! Its such a lovely buggy to push I have arthritis and have found my others quite difficult to control as well as put up and down but this ones perfect as its just soooo easy to use!!I just love the look of it 2, ive got it in orange as and am sooo proud of seeig her majesty in it, it sits up great so she can be nosey and the recline is great for when shes sleepy! needless to say i loooove it its fab!!! XX
About the reviewer: mother on one 14 month old Short Title: great for travel and car use Review: I have a quinny buzz which I love but i needed something that folds smaller and is lighter for holidays and lifts with people. I had a ziko frankie but it was long in the fold and didn’t fit in the boot of my sisters KA. I always fancied the quinny zapp but really didn’t like the lack of recline, so when i saw this my dreams had been answered. I wasn’t disappointed. The pushchair only arrived today but it’s already a hit with myself and my son. it looks very like the zapp but reclines and has a basket!! The seat is large and has plenty of growing space The fold is short and wider than a maclaren type so better suited to most boot spaces but what wins it for me is the handling. After the lovely suspension on the buzz going to anything else just didn’t cut it however this has a lovely bounce to it and is a pleasure to push. I got it in the orange and the colour is beautiful the hood is large and the rain cover seems good. I guess if I had one slight criticism i guess the handles could be a little higher and softer but it really is a minor point.
Overall I will probably use this more than I thought I would, it may even replace my buzz!! Never thought that would happen. I guess the biggest thumbs up comes from my son who kept wanting to get in his new shinny pram!!
About the reviewer: Mum of one Short Title: great lightweight buggy Review: Wow! I’ve only just got this buggy but felt the need to rave about it immediately. It’s so easy to assemble and use and the recline is fab and my 3 month old looks so snug in it with the cosy toes. Not sure how good the quality is as I’ve only just got it, but it makes a perfect 2nd buggy and travel buggy.
About the reviewer: Mother of one Short Title: Best Pram ever! Review: The Zia 3 wheeler pram is the best 100 quid i have ever spent. I needed a compact,lightweight easy to fold up and down stylish buggy for Caleb-Thomas (6 months) and he loves it. He is really comfy in it and the foot muff is well worth paying an extra 25 quid for as he zips into it and looks really cozy. The pram fits perfect in the boot and the front wheel even clips off , perfect on the buses and even has a small but useful shopping basket. It ticks all the boxes for me and is great for value if you cant afford the Quinny prams
About the reviewer: Mother of 4 Short Title: Wow, Stylish & Practicle Review: What a stylish pushair and easy to assemble, took minutes! As a mother of 4 I have had many different buggies and strollers, but this one puts a smile on my face for a number of reasons; Easy to fold,great to manouvre, nice suspension on back wheels, good 5 point harness and very compact. On the minus side, handles could do from having some sort of grip foam as they are a bit slippery and the basket is a wee bit awkward to get at. Apart from these two niggles, for less than a
About the reviewer: 2 yr old son & another on the way! Short Title: I LOVE IT, I LOVE IT, I LOVE IT!! Review: Got my Zia last week from a local shop I happened to pop into by chance – made my weekend! I too have it in Teal and it is vibrant and eye catching, not to mention easy to steer, light and a dream to get in and out of the car. Didnt dare take it out to the woods last weekend as too nice to get dirty (!!) but it is fab for everything else (ie around town) and my little boy actually ASKS to get in it! I ordered the footmuff to match and it is fab – it has a teal outter and fleecy inner… only thing is that the inside is a very light grey colour and not white as I expected, but still gorgeous and prob more practical in the long run. In short… I LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT!!! Just need some accessories now – bag for the back and suitable buggy board attachment and then I would be in buggy-heaven!
About the reviewer: Mother of one Short Title: Zia footmuff Review: I got my Zia just before Xmas and am so pleased with it, I got it coz it fits in my Kia Picanto’s boot which is a MIRICLE.Just like the Quinny Zapp but with recline (strap system-would prefer a more structured system but this seems ok…easy to use) and shopping basket. I LOVE this buggy!!!! Use it so much more than my Graco travel system and the colour (i have it in teal) is really eye catching…wanted a unisex colour incase I ever have a little boy. I just received the footmuff(in teal) this morning. It’s fab!Millie looked so comfy in it and it has holes for 5 point harness in exact place.The inside is fleesey and the outer is the same material as the zia.Millie fell straight asleep in it and is still asleep now (came in from shops 1/2 hr ago and gently removed her outer clothes and top of footmuff-this totally detatches so you can use the underside as a liner in warmer weather.)Petite Zia was unbeatable for me … until now, when I added the cosy cosy footmuff!
About the reviewer: Mummy to 2yr old and 3 month old Short Title: Ticks all the boxes! Review: What a brilliant compact stroller. Having a small car we wanted something that folded smaller than the traditional umbrella fold. And this is it! It’s so easy to put up and collapse, very simple push-click-push system. It’s so light to push and carry when folded, can even carry the baby at the same time! I still have plenty of room in my boot for the shopping and both my 2yr old DD and 3 month old DS have been comfortable in it. The shopping basket is just big enough for the essentials, although it is a bit tricky to get to when the seat is fully reclined. The raincover is easy to put on, no faffing with poppers or velcro and has a nice little window to give my DD a drink and so on. The only thing that does seem a bit lacking is the mechanism to raise/lower the seat. It’s on a strap system so doesn’t seem as secure as other strollers, but time will tell. But apart from that, everything else about this stroller is perfect and good value for money.
About the reviewer: mother of one Short Title: small and perfectly formed Overall Verdict: Excellent Best Feature: Very light Worst Feature: None Review: This pushchair is fantastic! I bought it a after having a heavy travel system and haven’t looked back.
After it was delivered, it took about five minutes to put together and was ready to go! The fold/unfold is really easy to do and there is a clip to keep it in place once folded. It’s incredibly light and small and after lifting it into my boot, with one hand, there was still plenty of room for my shopping.
The pushchair is easy to manoeuvre, even using one hand and the straps are easy to do up and undo having large clasp. The back reclines using a strap system that I found fairly simple to use after figuring it out. There is a good size shopping basket and the raincover it comes with has a flap for passing things through without lifting the whole thing.
The only negative could be that the handles may be too low for anyone tall but they are not a problem for me.
All in all, it’s a great value, light and compact pushchair. I’m very impressed that it ticks so many boxes and I would definitely recommend it.
