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.
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: I have not purchased any other travel bags so not able to compare it against anything. It did what I wanted it to do and protected the buggy on the flight. However on the return journey the bag did have a small hole in it - not sure if this is down to the bag or the baggage handlers. I would buy another one so it can't be that bad !
Summary: After reading the very mixed reviews I decided this was worth a shot for 14.99. Lots of people had commented they couldn't get it in the bag and it was wasted money.....I cannot understand how you can't get the buggy in,it's made to fit! I received the product and within 5 minutes the bag was packed with the buggy and as stayed that way since, open the bag and lie it flat on the floor, where the zips shut is the bottom you can tell this as its deeper.
Summary: Stunning loojin pram and so light and cimpacked i have a very smal car a citroen c1 ad it fits well in my boot by taken the frout wheel of which is is so easy can do it 1 handed. tge reason why it is not a 5* is i havent had it 2 mins and the wheels are sqeekin which is so imbarrisin had to oik them and are fine now but for that whole day with a sqeeky pram was a nightmare. also for the price should at least come with some form of footmuff or acceorie??
Excerpt: I bought the petit star zia plus when my daughter was 18 months. I needed avery lightweight pram for work that lay flat, I was a nanny and my daughter came to work with me. I read all the reviews and thought this would be the one. I have two view pointswith this pram,. When my daughter was 18 months and up to nearly 4 years it was fantastic, but when I started using it as a childminder for children under a year I became concerned.
Summary: Having had 3 boys, we have had numerous pushchairs / buggies / strollers over the last 13 years and I have to say that this is possibly the best stroller that we have had. Once you know how to fold the stroller it is extremely simple and folds to the smallest size we have ever had, takes up no space at all in the boot and can even fit in the footwell of the car if needed, it is that compact.
Excerpt: i bought this product for my daughter just yesterday. and today she was sitting in it drink a bottle and watching telly shes only one years old she sat up and looked to the side to see what her brother was doing. the next minute the pram was on top of my four year old son. she had tipped it over with just slight movement.
Good pram for going on walks, not so good for hitting the shops.

Excerpt: I bought this stroller after getting tired of pushing around my heavy Chicco travel system. I was looking for something much more light weight, easier to push, and with better suspension. Weight: After trying out a few strollers I decided on the Petite Star ZiaX. It wasn't the lightest pram but not too bad at 7.8kg. You don't really notice the weight until you actually pick it up. It feels a lot lighter to push than it's actual weight.
