|Range of scores|
There are six pushchairs in the Quinny range. To help parents choose the right one for their needs, Quinny divides its pushchairs into categories according to their different uses.
Urban use – Quinny Buzz and Quinny Moodd
The Quinny Buzz combines modern looks with nifty features including an automatic hydraulic folding system. It’s available in three or four-wheeled versions, known as the Buzz 3 or Buzz 4.
The Quinny Moodd has a similar chassis to the Buzz, with an improved folding mechanism. Check out our video review of the Quinny Moodd to see it in action.
Lightweight buggies – Quinny Zapp and Quinny Yezz
The Quinny Buzz is designed for city dwellers who use public transport and need a pushchair that is lightweight, folds compactly and is easy to manoeuvre in a crowd. There is now a Quinny Buzz 3 and Quinny Buzz 4.
Heavy use – Quinny Speedi and Quinny Senzz
The Quinny Speedi is a chunky all-terrain pushchair.
The Quinny Senzz is a city pushchair. It’s no longer in production but is still available to buy.
Quinny makes a wide range of accessories for its pushchairs, including cosy foot muffs, shopping baskets, parasols, mosquito nets and windstoppers.
For babies under 9kg (approximately six months old) the Dreami pram body can be used instead of the seat on the Buzz and Speedi pushchairs.
How much does a Quinny pushchair cost?
Expect to pay from around £160 for the Quinny Zapp to around £599 for the Quinny Moodd.
If you’re prepared to buy second-hand, prices on eBay (checked May 2013) average:

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 Moodd review
The Quinny Moodd is a travel-system pushchair that can be used as a pram with a carrycot. It features an automatic unfolding chassis like the one on Quinny's bestselling Buzz pushchair and has a futuristic-looking seat.
Which? memebers can read our full reviews to find out how easy the Quinny Moodd pushchair is to use and how reliable it is, and see what parents who already own this pushchair think of it.
Quinny Buzz 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, the Quinny Buzz 4. These two pushchairs performed quite differently in our tests, so it's worth checking out our reviews to see which one we rate best.
Quinny Speedi review
The Quinny Speedi is an all-terrain pushchair designed for use in the town and country.
Find out how it scored - and what our parent panel made of it – by reading our full Quinny Speedi review.
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 how the Quinny Yezz did in our test labs and what parents thought of it.
Quinny Zapp Xtra review
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? Read our Quinny Zapp Xtra review on to find out what our pushchair tests uncovered.
