Summary: well priced pushchair,practical and compact both myself and baby harry 6 months are happy with it
Pros: After downsizing from a multi combi system this small compact folding pushchair is a godsent, light weight and easy manovorable my little one six months seems happy enough, multi reclining seat means liitle one can have a nap too. One hand folding makes life easier when your trying to juggle baby and pram at once which means its great for public transport.Also compact enought to fit inthe smallest of car boots. choice of many colours, optional extras footmuff and chan...
Cons: little one seems a bit slouched but not a major problem rain cover can be difficult to put on no where to put a sun umberella on but other options for shade available
THE ZIA 4. A REALLY COMFY PUSH WITH FUNKY COLOURS.

Summary: Love it, easily the best buggy I've had (and that numbers 6!
Pros: Very comfortable push. Nippy in town but with great suspension for long walks. Lies completely flat for a good sleeping position. Soft carry cot can be inserted for newborn, additional clips for car seat available. gorgeous colours - I bought the lime green, which always takes in stares and compliments. Comfortable handle height for average heighters! REALLY easy to erect and collapse. Not really small on collapse but we've flown with ours twice without problem.
Cons: Back wheels wider than an average pushchair so needs more clearance. This always frustrates my husband. Basket not accessible when buggy laid flat. No sun canopy/umberella. Rain cover quite tight around the feet.
Summary: Great price for an easy fold and light buggy that is great for travelling.
Pros: Great easy fold, lightweight and small when folded.
Cons: Handles are too short for average height parents (from 5.8 this buggy is too short on the handles and it kills your back!!) Seating position, should been able to seat more upright than what it does. My poor baby boy, always sat right, and his back was not supported by the seat.
Summary: I wouldn't say this is value for money at all. I'd say it's for the more "style conscious" mother who's not really bothered about practicality. I wouldn't recommend this pushchair for anyone over 5ft 7". The Petite Star Zia is nice to look at & very lightweight, but unfortunately that's about it.
Pros: Very light to push. Folds up very easily and fits into the smallest of car boots. Nice big hood & good quality raincover. Good for walks or short trips.
Cons: Handles are very low down. My 6ft 2" partner can't push the Petite Star for too long because it gives him backache. The shopping basket broke after about 2 weeks, it won't hold more than tall bottle of milk. You can't hang a changing bag on the handles as it tips up. You accidentally "kick" the break on whilst pushing it. My daughter can't sit up properly in it. It's not good for shopping trips as there is no basket space, etc.
GOOD CHEAP BUGGY THAT FOLDS REALLY EASILY AND SMALL

Summary: This has been compared to the quinny zapp, yes it is very similar but has an adjustable backrest and basket which is great, but the quality is very different, this has a much cheaper feel to it. I have had the quinny zapp which i loved but baby hated it as she hated being constantly upright and it was hard to fold so this zia changes both of those problems as its loads easier to fold and unfold and has the adjustable backrest.
Pros: Folds and unfolds really easily. Lies back into any position you want. Has a good hood and raincover has an opening to get to the baby easily without taking the whole cover off. Great colours. Easily removable wheels to get into a smaller space.
Cons: Small basket that you cant get to when baby is lying down but this is the case with most buggies so i expected this. Flimsy cheap feel quality to it similar to the cheap feel graco pushchairs, stiff wheels. No grip on handles to push.
Summary: Brilliant pushchair for travelling and also daily use. Has been a godsend as it takes up hardly any space when folded and I love the fact that it is freestanding. Having only a tiny car there was only this pushchair and the Zapp that could be considered and this one won hands down just having the shopping basket and lie-back features which are brilliant. Have now been using this pushchair for over a month, my son loves it and I have encountered no problems.
Pros: Incredibly light, portable and easy to steer. Is a doddle to put up and down. Takes up hardly and space and have encountered no problems eg bits dropping off like my last pushchair
Cons: Feels light and not particularly substantial, my Mum thought it felt unsafe because of this
Summary: Good-value, looks great and my daughter is very comfortable in this. It folds down very small so fits in our car boot easily (VW Polo). The wheels can come off to make it even smaller. It's lightweight so easy to move around, reclines so your little one can nap easily, and is just an all-round great pushchair!
Pros: Lightweight, folds down small, fully reclines, stylish. The additional cosytoes foot muff is lovely and snug.
Cons: Small shopping basket that's hard to access if the seat is down.
Summary: Got the petite zia delivered today and i have to say i am very impressed and excited about this buggy. It folds a little wider and longer than the zapp, but not too much. The fabrics are of very good quality with loads of padding. The frame is aluminium and very sturdy, its design although almost identical to the zapp, has very small deferences (hence a bit larger) that make sure that it is not easy at all to tip this buggy, unless you seriously misuse it.
Pros: small,easily maneuvrable, good quality value buggy
