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 outdoors with your little one then this pushchair might be right for you.

Quinny Zapp review
This buggy comes as a travel-system option when you buy a compatible child car seat and, according to Quinny, can fold down very small.
Is the Quinny Zapp really nippy and manoeuvrable like the brand claims it is? See what we found when we tested the Quinny Zapp.
Quinny Zapp Xtra review
This buggy fully reclines so it's apparently suitable from birth, and the seat can be adjusted to face either way.
The Quinny Zapp Xtra travel system is pleasing to the eye, but is this designer pushchair all style and no substance? Read our Quinny Zapp Xtra review to find out.
Quinny Zapp Xtra 2 review
An updated version of the Zapp Xtra, it can now be folded without having to remove the seat.
Find out if this 'flexible solution', as Quinny claims it is, is really the ideal pushchair for you by reading our review of the Quinny Zapp Xtra 2.
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 including checking for finger traps or choking hazards.
We assess how easy the pushchair is to push, adjust for children of different ages and fold up. We also assess suitability for public transport and test to see if there's space left in the boot of a standard family car once the pushchair is in there.
The final part of our testing involves a panel of parents (and their babies), who rate the appearance and features of the pushchair. They take each model 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.
You can find out more about how we test pushchairs, and read customer views from parents who already own each pushchair, in our full pushchair reviews.
