The Quinny Buzz, considered a high-end designer stroller, receives wildly mixed reviews. The futuristic design of the Buzz is distinguished by its tricycle shape (with a double wheel front and center) and a reversible seat (this version is also known as the Quinny Buzz 3 to distinguish it from the Quinny Buzz 4, which has two separate wheels in the front). While some reviewers find maneuvering easy, others say the Buzz is unsuited to rough terrain. A selling feature is the spring-assist unfolding mechanism, but some reviewers say closing the stroller requires a bit of effort. All agree that the Buzz is heavy and offers minimal storage. Although many parents seem to have bought this stroller based on its looks, in general they are very satisfied. If the Quinny Buzz is outside your price range and you want a stroller with more storage space, parents are very happy with the all-terrain Jeep Liberty Limited (*Est. $160).
