Oh what you've ladies have done to me.
So I bought that frog back in May of last year for our newest, I never really found a pattern for a new canopy cover so we found all original bugaboo covers and replaced out the whole stroller. It's so blue and beautiful. Plus I matched a gorgeous PPB to it. I love everything ... But the 2pc fold :( It's such a pain sometimes, esp going to Busch gardens or any of the parks here in fl.
So today we went to Macrobaby and picked up the new Quinny Zapp Xtra with the folding seat. So far it's beautiful, we got the natural mavis.
Has anyone played with it yet and have any pro's / con's with the stroller? Folding looked a lot easier than when I got it home on my own and wasn't playing with the broken in demo lol

Why would you do such a silly thing!? ;] Snunkie does custom canopies/footmuffs/liners for the Quinny...http://www.snunkie.co.uk/index.html



And ♥Lauren had a custom set made for her Buzz, you might want to see who made hers [check the topic watch list to find her]!?

We had a Zapp Xtra, but not the one with the folding seat. I liked it with the Maxi Cosi Mico...it's a zippy little thing. But the Bugaboo Bee+ is my go to light weight, so no point in keeping the Zapp around. I think S.daud had a Zapp Xtra as well, pre folding seat as well.

thanks! i got it as a gift at my shower (the bugaboo) but before my shower i ended up changing my mind to save money. i got the bugaboo from a family friend and i told her i was going to exchange it and she said whatever, she just wanted to get me something "big" bc she was proud of me. i was able to get the buzz and other little stuff i needed for the baby with the exchange, so it worked out well.

yup i had a zapp xtra...i had three beefs with it...1. the two piece fold (N/A for u tho!) 2. the fact that it doesnt sit fully upright in rear facing mode and 3. the wheels made the most annoying rattling noises...after I sold it snd used thr Stokke and City Mini GT it was a relief...lol...id rather get something else than the Zapp...even tho its a tiny fold...i just HATED the rattling wheels...

I had the typical "graco travel system" in the beginning with my first... and then and Evenflo travel system... then I started researching when I was pregnant with my third. I needed something to fully function for our lives. I couldn't BELIEVE the options! I discovered Britax. Oh how I LOOOOVED my b-ready. It was fantastic! I could have two kids, it wouldn't tip over, the basket still held a fair amount of crap and it folded- WITH the second seat on. I was in looooove. And then I gave it to my SIL. And I got the b-nimble. Which is a fantastic umbrella stroller that has truly served it's purpose. One of my brakes broke and I called them... they sent me a whole new stroller because they didn't have just the brake part that I needed. How awesome? Yeah. It was awesome.
Now I'm having twins and I'm pretty keen on buying another b-ready. That's how much I loved it the first time around. I would willingly buy another one- but maybe in a different color this time! Hehe
I had used a friend's tandem stroller a few times and couldn't imagine having to push that sucker around all the time. I definitely prefer the inline capabilities. It was still like pushing a single stroller but it was really two! :)



But any recommendations for a double jogger would be awesome! Even if it's side-by-side!

BOB Revolution Duallie is probably thee best double jogger out there. But, Baby Jogger is another great brand and I like their finishings better! Are you actually going to be jogging or just lots of walking & rough terrain...if you aren't jogging the Bumbleride Indie Twin or Phil & Ted are good options too.

See, ours doesn't rattle ( thank god ! ) My only concern with having it for a few weeks now, is when I go to push the fold part by the basket one of the sides ALWAYS gets stuck and you have to jiggle it..
