Zapp! pow! Quinny
We do not travel often, but when we do I am nervous wreck. Traveling with a baby, toddler or child is not only stressful, but you have to carry so much with you. I was looking for a good stroller that I would not have to check at the gate (since let's face it, it most often comes back damaged and soiled in some way). I found the Quinny Zapp online and could not be happier. Quinny Zapp folds small enough (with wheels removed) to be carried onboard in a duffle bag (that comes with the stroller). It looks sleek and wheels like a dream. If you want to separate yourself from the pack, you must get this wonderful lightweight stroller. My daughter loves riding in it, and it is especially accommodating for tall children.It is ideal for traveling with any kind of transportation (car, train, plane), and is a full-size stroller with an ultra compact 3-D fold (12" x 27". The Maxi-Cosi® infant car seat can be used with the frame. The front wheels rotate 360° degrees and can be locked. You get a sun canopy, rainshield, basket and travel bag and adapters for the Maxi-Cosi® infant car seat. Quinny customer service is wonderful, friendly and efficient as well. The usual retail for the Quinny Zapp is around $200-$219, but you cannot put a price on convenience. Go to Hip Baby Gear in Marblehead, MA to buy the Quinny. They are extremely helpful and also have a wonderful online site to order from.
