How we review Quinny pushchairs
Our experts in the test lab put each Quinny pushchair through more than 30 tests to check its strength, durability and safety, in line with British standards.
We assess how easy the pushchair is to push, adjust for children of different ages and fold up. We also test whether it will fit unfolded on an escalator and on public transport, or folded in the boot of a small family car. We even find out how easy it is to remove food stains from the pushchair fabric.
The final part of our testing involves a panel of parents (and their babies), who rate the appearance and features of the pushchair and take it for a spin to see how easy and convenient it is to manoeuvre on pavements, bumpy ground, up and down stairs and around other obstacles.
Quinny Buzz Xtra review
This travel system pushchair, an updated version of a previous model, is designed to be suitable for all-terrain, so if you like to go exploring with your little one then this pushchair might be right for you. It comes with a reversible seat, and Quinny says they've improved the shopping basket and the hood.
But how did this updated pushchair do in our tough safety and durability tests? Read our review of the Quinny Buzz Xtra to find out.

Quinny Buzz 3 reviews
The Quinny Buzz 3 off-roader pushchair is suitable from birth. Its seat can face in either direction, or be replaced by the Dream Buzz carrycot or optional Maxi-Cosi Cabrio car seat. The Buzz is also available in a four-wheeled version.
But is it easy to use in all conversions? See our review of the Quinny Buzz 3 to find out what our lab experts and parent panel thought of it.
Quinny Yezz review
The lightweight Quinny Yezz is built from adventurous materials such as parachute fabric, yachting rope and skateboard wheels, making it light and eye-catching. It's designed for folding and packing away easily when you're on the move.
Find out if it really is light to use and carry by visiting our review of the Quinny Yezz.
Quinny Zapp and Quinny Zapp Xtra reviews
There are two versions of this pushchair - the Quinny Zapp and Quinny Zapp Xtra. The Quinny Zapp Xtra travel system is pleasing to the eye, but is this designer pushchair all style and no substance? And is the Quinny Zapp really nippy and manoeuvrable like the brand claims it is?
