    I know nothing about the Quicksmart, but I LOVE my Zapp!!! I have the old one and purchased the new seat and adapters so I can choose to have it recline/rear-face or have it with the static seat and as a more compact unit for travel, etc.

    Its a fabulous unit. But I am a Quinny lover (have the Buzz as my big pram).

    I think the zapp is quicker and a lot simpler to fold than the quicksmart. It also has a longer seat so you can use it for longer! Zapp also looks better !!

    I've had the 3 and 4 wheel quicksmart and there is nothing 'easy fold' about them. Many times they have gone home fully set up in the boot cos I give up LOL. Given I have only used them when holidaying as they are very compact when you can actually fold them up.

    I should vote for the zapp then LOL (Have never seen one lol)

    I just googled the zapp as I love prams lol. It looks a heap better than Quicksmart, even though that's the only one I've owned. Folds down so small and the seat recline which the qksmrt doesn't.

    I want one now lol

    ETA oooh fair price difference if you are just after a stroller

    To me price doesn't come into it if the product I want will suit my needs better. I don't see the point in buying a crap stroller because it is cheap but then not being happy with the recline, how it handles, storage etc etc.
    You may as well buy what you want.

    I think the quicksmart has a place for quick trips and to the supermarket. I wouldn't use it on a holiday though as there is not much recline and hte wheels are quite small. We have a Mac vogue and a baby jogger city mini for travel/supermarket.

    I also think the quicksmart is quite heavy and it does seem tricky to fold. But I like the baby jogger and maclaren which are quite simple.

    I would get the zap xtra if I was buying but OP it really depends on your needs

    RDCO - what are the diffreences - pros & cons of the Zapp & the Buzz?

    I have been thinking about the Buzz for my baby due in June ... we were going to get that and hire a maxi cosi capsule to fit it, then we were given a carseat/capsule combo - which won't fit the buzz .... but thinking of hiring the capsule for a few months anyway to make life easier and still get Buzz?

    haven't looked into Zap.

    Hope that makes sense!
    Would love your thoughts.

    Yeah it folds down fairly small, not as small as the quicksmart but its a different shape, the quicksmart is more squared and the zapp is longer and skinnier if that makes sense haha! They both come with carry bags too which makes them easier to cart around. The zapp is just so much simpler, the quicksmart is pretty fiddly and I found it to be temperamental. There are videos on YouTube for the quicksmart and probably for the Zapp too!
