Conclusion: The Petite Star Zia4 is a buggy that can become a lightweight travel system, and it’s the potential cost saving it offers when these extras are purchased that’s one of the big selling points. However, if you’re tall or short, try it out before you spend any money to ensure the handle height is comfy.

Cons: A little over-designed, flimsy carrycot, I wasn’t crazy about the green colour but lots of others do like it, including my 3-year-old son Isaac who said it was like lettuce! And, it does come in a different colourway if you’re not a green fan. Other niggles include that the basket is too small, and there are a few detachable parts that in a busy hectic life might be misplaced. The working parts could get lost, including the bumper bar. In this way the Zia4 suffers fro...
