Okay, so I have a little back story before getting into just how much we love this stroller: we were sent the Quinny Buzz Xtra in exchange for a review I did on another website that I write for. We instantly fell in love, for all of the reasons I will soon get into, but then the unthinkable happened. Our stroller was stolen straight out of our car. We were devastated. We have tried a handful of strollers, and this was far and above our favorite. I reached out to the company, and they actually offered to send us another stroller! Brand new! I was blown away by their empathy and generosity! Quinny is doing customer service RIGHT, my friends. And thus, today, I wanted to share all of the reasons why this stroller is so awesome.
It looks great. Now, this is certainly not the most important factor of a stroller, because you want functionality above all else, so this may sound silly, but looks are important to me in something that I’m going to be pushing around the majority of my days, you know? So yeah. This stroller nails it in the looks department. It’s sleek, modern, I LOVE the all-black with silver detailing and it just looks, well, cool. So, there’s that.
Okay, now for functionality. This thing rides like a dream. It is so smooth and the steering is seamless. You can adjust the handlebar, which is great for all heights. The wheels are nice and big and handle bumps and turns easily. I love love love the sunshade, which we actually used while on walks by the beach to keep bugs out! The sunshade completely protects Baby, which is so reassuring as a parent. The seat is super plush, which I’m sure Sam appreciates. ;)
And let’s talk about the folding. It is amazing. It folds up super easily, and thanks to the hydraulics system, it unfolds automatically! It is a dream. It’s also not terribly heavy, and I can easily load and unload it in and out of the car myself, which is a big deal. I also love that the seat can be facing you or the world, and also can be adjusted to three different positions, depending on the size of your baby and if he is sleeping or not. ALL GOOD THINGS. They seriously left nothing out with this stroller.
I cannot say a bad thing about the Quinny Buzz Xtra. So yes. If you are in the market for a new stroller, I absolutely recommend this one. It is a good quality stroller that is well-built and is sure to last.
What kind of stroller do you have? Do you love it?
Can you run with this stroller? That was the big deciding factor for me- and we ended up with the single and double Bob. But I really like the look of this one! Maybe someday if we have baby #3…
I definitely wouldn’t call it a jogging stroller (love our BOB!) but we’ve taken some long walks with it… I’d call it more of a “rugged” stroller, as it handles terrain like a boss!
I seriously cannot believe someone stole your stroller out of your car!!! That’s so awesome of the company to send you another one. Now Sam can continue to ride in style!
I KNOW!!! It was absolutely devastating when it got stolen and I was pretty shaken up about it for quite a while… I’d never had anything stolen before, so it was especially hard. But yeah, I’m counting my blessings over here that they sent us another!! :)

Love the look of this stroller…so sleek! It’s not as expensive as I thought it would be either.
I have the Graco Snug Ride Click Connect set (car seat, jogger, and regular stroller). It’s functional and looks nice enough, but the front wheel lock on the jogger always falls into lock position if we hit a bump, which is irritating! It fit our budget, however, and I like that it required no extra adapters or parts. I would gladly trade it for one of these, though! :)
I thought it was just our stroller that did that! Have you fixed it? Ours locks as soon as you let go of the button so it’s really hard to use anymore :(

No, I haven’t. It’s only bad if on a bumpy surface; plus it’s been so hot here that I haven’t taken it out in a while. I’m seriously thinking of duct taping it or something equally tacky. Our friends have the same problem with theirs. Ugh.
That’s so nice to not have to get any extra adaptors and whatnot- huge savings there! Annoying about the wheel, though… Maybe if you have a warranty you can contact the company?
Hey! I am in the market for a stroller – love the look of this one, but is it good for jogging? I really need one that I can jog with :)
I wouldn’t call it a jogging stroller, but we’ve taken it on some long walks. I’d say it’s more of a “rugged” stroller and is great on all sorts of terrain. For jogging, though, I’d stick with BOB- we love ours!
Agree completely! I have a Buzz Xtra & woulfnt swap it for the world & one by one I convert my friends to the Quinny Family! Their customer service & parts department are brilliant, even sending me items free of charge. Well done you & Quinny xx
