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.
Excerpt: The pram is dangerous DO NOT BUY this pram has just toppled on to my 11 month old son!! We was at home, I needed the loo so popped him in this pram, strapped in, I heard an almighty bang, rushed off the loo, to find my son faced down on the floor with this pram on top of him. His head is cut. Very dangerous!!
Summary: Does the job for basic use in and around the house and storage in the car. Hasn't faired too well with usage on flights and transferring via air cargo, the bag ripped!!! it is a tight fit and the front wheel had to be removed in order for the pushchair to fit in the carry bag. disappointing, but better to have one for travel then not.
I wouldn't buy this pushchair again as I would go for a pushchair with 4 wheels

Excerpt: I brought this pushchair as a spare for my little boy when he was about 12 months old. I loved it as it was lightweight, had a large seat so he wasn't all cramped and the main thing I loved was the fact the recline lay flat so he was able to sleep comfortably while out and about. Because of all these pros I started to use it more often than my main pushchair (Quinny buzz) Slowly as my little boy got bigger and heavier I started to dislike and have some problems with the...
Excerpt: I bought this when my daughter was 3 so not a young baby. She felt very comfy in it and it was a great size for the larger child who still needs a pushchair. It was also very light and the folding mechanism is excellant. Very easy to do even one handed so perfect for the runaway toddler! But, and yes there is a but; it felt abit like it had a mind of its own. I think the 3 wheels made it feel unsecure which put me off it abit.
Excerpt: We bought the petite star zia back in 2010 when my first son was about 16 months old after our bruin swift buggy fell apart after just a few months. At first looks I wasn't so keen as I didn't really want a 3 wheeler as I'd heard bad things about them. We bought it from toys r us and paid about £150 which isn't too bad for a pram (we paid £60 for the swift and learnt from our mistake). There was a choice of 3 colours on sale, pink, red and black.
Excerpt: Adjustable handlebars - good! Reasonably comfortable to drive and easy to fold, unfold. However, three times now it has tipped over when my 1.5 year old has leaned over the side. Last time was yesterday and has now got a bruised head and hand. I will contact Babies r us or Petite Star and complain to see what they intend to do. Do not buy this pushchair!
