PRODUCT: Quinny Buzz 3-Wheeler Pushchair (www.dorel.co.uk)Quinny Buzz (Strawberry)

DESCRIPTION: A three-wheeled pushchair with automatic unfolding system, suitable for children from birth up to approximately 4 years (maximum 15kg). Includes a 5-point harness, comfort cushion, XL seat, footrest, safety bar, sun canopy, raincover, detachable shopping bag and pump, and 2 x adaptors for use with Dreami carrycot or Maxi-Cosi car seat (both sold separately). Available in a range of colours`.

ASSEMBLY: The stroller is simple to assemble following the detailed and easy-to-read instruction manual. Before using, the two rear wheels and the front wheel all need to be slotted into the appropriate parts of the frame until they ‘click’ into place. Once the frame has been unfolded, the seat unit can be fitted into the two connection points and easily removed using the release buttons. If the Quinny Buzz is to be used with either the Dreami carrycot or Maxi-Cosi car seat, then the adaptors (labeled L for left and R for right) slot into the connection points first, into which the carrycot or car seat can then be attached. The handlebar height may also need to be adjusted, but this is simply done by pushing in the handlebar adjustment button and sliding the handlebars to the appropriate height.

Quinny Buzz GOOD POINTS: The Quinny Buzz is a stylish and modern looking pushchair which has an excellent quality finish and will accommodate your child over a large age range. It has a very sturdy build with an aluminium frame, two large inflatable rear wheels, and a solid rubber front wheel. The pushchair has a unique folding system, whereby on releasing the transport hook the frame automatically unfolds - ideal for one-handed operation when you have your hands full!

The pushchair generously comes with two seats, the ‘comfort cushion’ as it is referred to, is designed to accommodate your child up to 18 months, after which the 'XL seat' is for use with children up to the maximum limit. The comfort cushion is incredibly soft and foam-padded to create a wonderfully comfortable seat for your child, and it has a dirt and water resistant top layer for easy cleaning. Both seats can be hand washed.

A great feature of the pushchair is that the seat unit can be fitted either in a front-facing or rear-facing position, the latter of which is ideal for enabling young babies to lie facing you. Changing the position over is simple and quick using the adjustment button located on each connection point. In either the forward- or rear-facing position, the seat can be usefully tilted from a sitting position for older children, through to a semi-reclining and fully-reclining position for younger or sleeping babies. For children in the sitting position, the pushchair has a footrest which is integrated into the seat unit and can be flipped up or down to suit your child.

The pushchair has a secure five-point harness with padded crotch and shoulder straps, and these can be adjusted to suit your child’s age, height and size. In addition, a safety bar is included to give extra security and also provide a useful attachment for toys. The bar can be attached and removed as required, and simply clicks into the appropriate openings on each side of the seat.

The Quinny Buzz is incredibly easy to manoeuvre around, which is helped by the height adjustable handlebars and the front swivel wheel. Usefully, the front wheel can also be locked into a fixed position if you are travelling straight or over uneven surfaces. Another safety feature is the dual parking brake system located on the inside edge of the rear wheels - pushing on the red pedal activates the brake, while pushing on the green pedal releases it.Quinny Buzz (Storm)

Several additional accessories are included in the price. Firstly, a sun canopy, which clips on to the frame of the seat unit and is height adjustable. It has an extra integrated pull-down sun shade for additional protection and also a Velcro flap on the top which allows you to check on your child. Secondly, a raincover, which fits over the sun canopy and hooks onto the underside of the footrest. A double zipper allows for extra ventilation and also easy access to your child.

In addition, a handy shopping bag with carry handle (or ‘Quinny Buzz Box’) clips on and off the bottom of the frame as required. It is fairly small in size but is very substantially made, and has several compartments for storing all your shopping essentials up to a maximum of 5 kg. It comes with a small pump to keep the tyres inflated.

In our opinion, this is a very attractive and stylish pushchair that is excellent quality, and its sturdiness and adaptability will ensure that it outlasts your needs.

BAD POINTS: The Quinny Buzz is quite heavy, and fairly bulky to stow unless dismantled. As a result it may not be ideal for small cars or those short on storage space. The pushchair requires two hands to fold down. There are a number of other useful accessories such as a shopping basket, parasol and footmuff, which must be purchased separately.

PRICE: Approx. £300
