    Bought this as needed something light and easy for packing in the car - really pleased with its performance. It’s soooo quick and easy to fold and unfold. My baby loves it - comfortable, lots of room to grow. I love the different reclines and the fact it goes completely flat for nap times. The large hood is also a bonus giving her plenty of shade without the need for an extra umbrella - but the viewing window allows me to check on her without disturbing her. The brakes work well and are easy to put on and off. The biggest downside is the basket - it’s quite small - would only fit an average size changing bag and due to its lightness there’s no way you can put the bag round the handle bars because it would so easily tip over. The more reclined the seat is, the less and less accessible the basket becomes - luckily I wear my changing bag on my back but I can see this becoming annoying. The other downside is the buckle is incredibly stiff to click the straps in and sometimes I really struggle. I’m hoping this is just because it’s new and will improve with time.

    Purchased the stroller for our holidays, and it was perfect. We were worried about it being damaged in the luggage hold but it withstood the airport & the entirety of the holiday! It was easy to use & easy to push! The full recline meant my baby could sleep whilst we ate dinner and she seemed pretty comfy in it! Overall really happy with our stroller and still use it now especially as it takes up less space in our car boot! Which is fab when you have a million bags to carry

    I absolutely love this buggy for my little boy, we have had the buggy for nearly 2 years and it’s still in great condition, even after having had it abroad with up multiple times. Only downside for me is the buckle it unclips quite a lot when trying to clip it in which can be frustrating.

    I'm not a fan of this stroller I had to go out in search of another as I could not get on with the steering I found it quite stiff and ridges

    • Weaknesses:

    I purchased this stroller for my sons who was unfortunately getting to big for his urbo 2 pushchair. The zest stroller was at a mid range price and looked good. To begin with it didn’t seem to bad however after only using it a handful of times the break bar, that joins the breaks to the wheels and pushchair, snapped so now the breaks don’t work at all. My son also keeps slipping down when he’s being pushed around, the strap between his legs won’t adjust so he looks very uncomfortable. The good is easy to use and unzips to make it bigger so covers him when the sun is shining with a breathable net at the very top! The netting underneath is plenty big enough to store a few bits and pieces!

    Bought this a couple of weeks ago to replace the Silver Cross travel system now that our boy is 16 months old. It's so light that I can lift quite easily it with the boy inside even if i am not a strong person. Our little one is not complaining anymore now when it's time to go in the stroller and he fell asleep quite easily which I suppose means it is really comfortable. It's easy to close and open after some practice and use small space when folded. The basket is quite large but difficult to reach when reclined.

    This is a great buggy to have in the car or to travel with. It is good for short walks and nipping about town, as it is a stroller with small wheels it can be a bit bumpy but my baby still can sleep in it comfortably especially with the easy to adjust recline settings and the large sun shade. Even though it is a bit bumpy i had choosen this over my main pram in the sunny weather because of the sun shade on it.
    The storage basket is small so not much room for shopping, it can support a change bag on the back while a child is in the seat but will tip when the child is removed.
    It is easy to steer with two hands but is difficult to steer just using one hand .

    I purchased this pushchair last year (2017) for my 3 year old daughter for holiday so if her legs got tired. We wanted something easy to fold, lightweight and comfortable.
    A pro to this pushchair the weight limit is 25kg.

    In 2018 we went on holiday with an 11 week old. Took this pushchair and it was perfect! It lies flat so can be used from birth. My daughter was so comfortable in it she would sleep for hours! Great ventilation and the sun shade is extra large so it really does help keep the pushchair cool and shaded.

    It’s so easy to fold up, and the carry strap makes it easy for when you need to carry it on the odd occasion.

    If you’re looking for a lightweight, easy to fold, great sunshade and comfy pushchair then this ticks all the boxes.
    The only downsize is the basket is a little small, but I don’t seem to mind so much.

      Strong & Robust to survive the Nursery buggy bin for 18months of daily use

      Storage of the Rain Cover

    We brought this buggy as our Nursery’s drop-off Buggy! Have been really pleased with it! It has survived being tangled with other buggy’s on a daily basis, other buggies piled (or most likely forcefully wedged on top) for 18months.
    We have also taken it on holiday, so a handy buggy to use until boarding & the recline function means little ones can happily nap!
    My main issue is where to store the rain cover!!! We are in england we basically need to have it with us at all times, but you can’t store it in the basket as it affects the fold mechanism. Our solution has been to have a small bag permanently attached, however in the buggy bin that caused more tangles!!!
    Overall would really recommend, you just need to find your own solution to the rain cover!!!

    Brought this buggy about 18 months ago as needed a lightweight and compact buggy, this did not disappoint! It has a good size seat and my daughter doesn’t look cramped in it. It’s easy to fold and put back up. We have a small car and it easily fits in our boot. It’s very easy to clean, which is great when you have a messy toddler. The basket underneath is a good size. It’s nice and easy to push and can be pushed and turned with one hand. The rain cover is easy to put on and covers it nicely. It has lasted us nicely and still has so much life left in it. Would highly recommend this buggy!

    This stroller is so easy to fold and unfold. Great size so fits in small and big cars nicely. Son seems to be extremely comfortable in it. Extending hood to protect from the sun.
    The only negative I have found so far is the basket underneath is very small so won’t fit a changing bag.

    Just bought this stroller to replace our pushchair which my little one was to heavy for. This stroller is so light and is easy push around and lift. It's easy to fold down and has a strap to carry it for when you do. It includes a raincover which is a bonus and adjustment on the leg part so lo can have legs up or down. The seat also reclines or sits upright ideal for a growing baby. Furhermore the cover includes share protection all for a reasonable price. Very happy mummy with this product.

    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.
