My name is Vita, and my little daughter (nearly 3 years) is Harper. We are from East London.

am one of those people that rather choose to walk instead of
Having three children I have had a chance to try most popular pushchair brands, and am really looking forward to test the Quinny Zapp X!
We have been using the pushchair every day. From school runs, to local libraries, playgrounds and we even visited Peppa Pig World at the weekend. I have been using it in forward facing direction only, as in parent facing it doesn't in fully upright position, that we use the most. It doesn't bothers me much as Harper is three next week.
Harper has had few naps in the Zapp X as well. I love the extendable hood for those naps. We also placed in seat liner, which is lovely, padded and fits perfectly.
We have a Ford Focus estate and folded it takes a very small space and I believe it will fit most boots.

This week brought us one of the hottest days in the year. So we tried to escape midday sun and go for evening walks. Except the school runs that we do every morning.
As a family of 5 and two dogs, we often do off road walking through parks and forests. For this - I can say that I am glad that our choice were the big chunky four wheels. They go through everything and I have not yet found a struggle with those. If you are a person that loves walking, then these wheels are definitely for you. Also they are easy to click on and off for a wash - after those long walks.
Overall, the chassis is quite sturdy, but not on the lightest side for strollers. Our choice was black chassis and I think it looks sleek and nice with the blush fabrics. But obviously any scratch will be easier to see on black chassis, so if you are worried about that, then the silver might work for you better.
This week started off with rain, so it was our first time using the rain cover. I love the concept that it is so small and doesn't takes a lot of space in basket.
I must say though that it is quite flimsy and only has a very small window (clear part). Harper kicked off the rain cover within minutes. Luckily the rain wasn't heavy and we got home within minutes. And love that hood is waterproof and extendable, so you can go out without a rain cover in mild showers too.
Also we had a trip to London Olympic stadium because I was running 10km marathon, so Harper waited patiently in the buggy. Daddy had to bring it all the way up the stairs that lead to our seat. And it had enough space to fit in between.

We were using our pushchair a little less than usual, as the UK was hit by another heatwave and we were using the car more. At the end of the week we went fishing and our children really enjoyed it! It was a little escape from the London busy streets for the fresh air.
I have noticed that with all the trips, the fabrics on the pushchair have gotten marks already, so I may need to do a wash soon. The blush pink is really lovely colour, even though it marks easily. I use the seat liner every day, so it helps to keep it cleaner for longer.
For a sleeping position, I have been keeping it in the middle position. As Harper is a toddler - 3 years old, when in the lowest recline, I feel that her head is lower than her feet and I don't think that it's overly comfortable. It probably doesn't happen with smaller babies and children. I do prefer pushchairs where you can lay them completely flat, as it usually extends the sleeping time!

We have been using the pushchair for almost two months now. I must say I cannot imagine going without it now. I still have a Bugaboo and Baby Jogger at home, but my first choice is the Quinny Zapp X. Another day I took the Baby Jogger out and had forgotten that it is harder to push, almost thought I had the brakes on! Quinny have definitely spoilt me with its smooth and easy ride. To be honest, I must say it is by far one of the most easiest prams to push, how amazing that even with a three year old it's so easy to swivel and stroll around.
It is definitely my pushchair on the go. School and nursery have now finished too, so we are enjoying walks around East London with our family.
