    We absolutely love our silver cross zest in aqua. It's so easy to use even dad can manage it! My Little boy loves the transition from his pram to this and is happy to get himself in the pushchair. Not only is it practical but it's also stylish. We brought it in an gorgeous aqua colour which unfortunately does get dirty quite easily but is also as easily steam cleaned.

    After having the silvercross reflux for over a year, we decided to purchase the silvercross zest as we were looking for a lightweight pram to take away on holiday with us and for grandparents to have a lighter weighing pram to use for our little girl.
    This was a perfect choice for taking on holiday, due to it being such light weight it was easy to carry through areas of the airport, and also easy for the pushchair to be put into the boots of taxi's or coaches.
    It has the great extra hood which was perfect when on holiday for when our little one needs to nap in the shade, and with the one clip at the back of the pram to lay it down, the chair lies back further enough for our little girl to lay flat for the extra comfort.
    This pram folds very easily for grandparents to have their use of, and they have also commented on how easy it is to lift out of the car and unfold with just one clip, unlike the relux that heavy in weight and needs two clips due to the durability of it. The zest also folds up very compactly for the grandparents to use and also have space in the car for wheelchairs etc when heading out on day trips.
    We now use this as our main pushchair due to us preferring to use it more.

    This was perfect for our holiday - it was lightweight, easy to fold, easy to use and had an extra sun canopy to shield from the sun. It wheeled beautifully and our little one was able to sleep as it folded right back. We are now using it as a second pushchair for grandparents to use - does the job beautifully.

    This is ideal for nipping around town but if you are on uneven ground is not great.

    It is easy to fold and open but you will need to do it 2 handed.

    Feels sturdy and it lays down to almost flat which is great for nap times on the go.

    I chose this pram in the aqua for my little boy after using the wayfarer travel system. Silvercross is a brand I love and knew I would only ever really consider them. This pram is perfect, lightweight and compact when I pop it in my car boot. I haven’t found any faults with it as yet.

    We bought this stroller when we booked our first holiday so that we didn't have to take our travel system. It's a great, easy, lightweight pushchair. It's really easy to fold and has a strap to carry on your shoulder. The only thing I don't like is the straps. They are really fiddly and really quite stiff. You have to put both sides in at the same time and somehow push the middle button of the plug at the same time. This can be extremely tricky with a wriggly baby. Other than that though it's fab.

    I love this pushchair because the seat space is very generous. Strollers I’ve purchased in the past tend to have very small seats and so my children have outgrown them very fast, but the seat on this stroller is very spacious. It’s lightweight and easy to push around, perfect for nipping to the shops etc. Easy to fold!

    I used it for holiday it has been very good for this purpose. The pushchair is lightweight and easy to push and steer one handed. The sun hood extends which gives excellent coverage without the need to worry about buying a parasol or sun shade. The seat reclines back fully so it is suitable from birth And the harness is secure. In the end continued to use it until now.

    I loved this little stroller. We used it on our first holiday abroad and it lived up to the Silver Cross reputation. Very light, easy to fold and stylish looking. We opted for a sheepskin insert to keep the baby cool, which fitted in nicely. The storage basket is spacious and came in handy for change bags etc. It seems robust enough too, but the 5 point harness is a fiddly component. It also snaps closed very suddenly- I jammed my finger in it and got a nasty little nip! All in all though, a very good product.

    This pushchair has been a great addition after using the travel system when our little one was first born. It is easy to fold and is compact; great for travelling abroad with. The reclining feature is useful and can be adjusted depending on what your little one needs. Sun canopy is of a good size and can be extended further when lying down flat. We have had a few issues with the breaks locking on but this mainly occurs when it is overloaded with heavy shopping and can be unlocked by pressing breaks on and off again. Overall we have found this pushchair good value for money and a very easy product to use.

    I originally bought the Silver Cross Zest stroller for my son, who was 18months at that time. This saw him through until he was around 2 1/2 years, when he really didnt want to be in a stroller any more, but there was still plenty of room for him, had he wanted to still be in it.

    Since then I have started using it for my latest addition, from the age of around 6 months. He seems very comfortable in it, and I find it much easier to use on the school runs that the travel system I have.

    The stroller is easy to steer (even with one hand when needed), smooth to put up and down, and a breeze to carry around thanks to the simple, but very handy carry strap.

    For me, the sun canopy on a stroller is one of the most important features, and needs to be substantial enough to cover the child’s body and the Zest doesn’t disappoint. It can even be further extended by unzipping it, when required. Movement of the canopy can be quite clunky and feels a little flimsy, but to date it hasn’t given up on me.

    The 5 point harness holds the child in nice and securely, and can be adjusted to as the child grows. Connecting the harness buckle can be slightly difficult if you have a wriggly baby (or defiant toddler!) and I have managed to catch my finger in the mechanism a couple of times. I’m just more careful with it now.

    The shopping basket is a decent size for an umbrella fold stroller. You’re never going to fit a full weeks shop in there, but is handy for a few bits and pieces. Access to the basket is restricted by the recline function of the seat, but that a small price to pay to have a comfortable creeping child.

    Overall I’m very impressed with the quality and build of the Silver Cross Zest and would recommend it to friends. To top it off, a raincover is also included, which covers the entire stroller (apart from the handles).

    Good little pop up stroller and folds nice and compact which is handy for the boot or any car. Very similar to the silver cross pop I found (had this with the older boys). The swivel wheels option is great and glides well. I absolutely love that it lies so flat and the extended hood for extra sun protection. Overall a great stroller for a quick pop up and down option especially to keep in the car boot. My only negative would be that it doesn’t feel all that sturdy and the handlebars can be shaken if you like, a little more than I’d like.
    This was also similar to the silver cross pop I had a few years back with the older children. With that said, neither of the other 2 silver cross strollers ever gave up on me! I would definitely recommend this and other silvercross products I’ve used in the past.

    I got this buggy from mother care for around 100 for my then 10month baby she's now just over 2 and is tall but slim she fits great and there is still plenty of growing room if she was chunky but as I say the break and the clip that keeps the brake on the pushchair broke 2 times in a year. It get sent back to silver Cross and fixed within a week and as of yet we have had no more problems. My 2nd baby that is know 9 months has been using it on and off for a while for just short trips like shopping etc.. and she sits brilliant, she's a lot chunkier then my 1st baby.

    I bought this as a second buggy for my little girl. We have the pioneer and love it so wanted to stay with the brand we know and love. The zest is lightweight yet sturdy when pushing around. It looks great and my little girl is super comfy. Even my eldest (2 yrs) enjoys a ride when tired. Would definitely recommend.

    I love this pushchair...Light weight, easy to put up and down, takes up little room in the car boot. Has a strap so easy if you need to carry it whole folded. Handy basket underneath for odd bits and pieces. Not the greatest if going a walk on a bumpy/ country lane however no issues on other pavements. Definitely worth the money compared to other chairs more expensive!
