Quinny Moodd Review – The Modern Quinny

 

The thing about the Quinny Moodd is its totally modern design (I guess that’s the reason for the name). It really does stand out and it looks pretty sleek. The finish is great, as you would expect for this level of travel system. It does come in many colours but I have focussed on the most popular, and most widely available, which are Blue Base, Black Irony, Grey Gravel. This system is voted by me as one of the best around. See the others here.

I’ve taken the brand’s video from YouTube to give you more of an insight into the product

 

pushchair seatPushchair element – Seat

The seat of the pushchair includes a baby nest which is from birth and can be removed so that it can suit a toddler up to 3 1/2 years – perfect adaptability. (when you buy check that this is included in the package, most of the time it does). And the direction of the facing can be changed too so that it can face Mum or Dad or turn out to face the world (when they need more distraction). In addition, there is a handle that sits between the baby’s legs so that they can have something to hold on to. This is removable if you don’t like it.

The seat can recline to 3 different positions and its a fairly straightforward motion to do this. In terms of straps there is an adjustable 5 point harness which is simple to use.

Quinny have created their prams so they fit a maxi-cosi pebble car seat. Which is definitely one of the industry leaders. If you buy a full travel system the adaptors would be included in the price. The Maxi-cosi car seats can all be fitted to your car by a seatbelt installation, which is very simple or you can buy a separate isofix base.

 

Carrycot

carry cotThe Carrycot come as part of the travel system itself. Unbelievably, it is completely foldable to a flat compact package which is a massive bonus with these items as they can be really cumbersome, if they don’t fold. The carrycot provides a really comfy sleeping place for your little one up to 6 months, and I think is an invaluable addition for those early days.

 

Smoothness of the ride

This pram has air filled wheels like on a bicycle which are always my personal favourite. What this means is that, with front and back suspension, it feels more lightweight and deals with rough terrain and bumps more smoothly, great for countryside walks as well as just about town. Ideal when little one is sleeping, and we all know we don’t want to disturb that sleep! And the wheels can be locked for ease on longer walks or allowed to move for manoeuvrability in tighter spaces. This is a three wheeler which is a personal preference in terms of look but I find they are a little more versatile in terms of motion.

 

Foldability

A very straightforward fold, in one go here. This is a function that all pram designers are thinking hard about as it should be possible with a child in one arm. This pram is released by pulling a lever on either side of the handlebar and then the unit can be pushed into the floor. Then it locks automatically, so that it doesn’t pop up. It’s hard to describe in words.

Accessories:

Parasol: which can provide more sun protection.

Footmuff: When it’s cold it can provide secure warmth so blankets don’t keep falling off.

 

Other smaller features

Handlebar: A consideration that you might not have thought about that became an issue for me is an adjustable handlebar. For parents of different heights. On this pram the foam covered handlebar, great for a firm grip, can be raised 4 inches higher to allow for Dad to push or if Mum is tall. (there’s no escaping).

Brakes: The Moodd has a stand on brake as you get with many pram systems, so you simply can step on it stop the pram.

Buttons: An interesting thing that Quinny does is that any functional buttons are made in grey so that you can see that they have a use. This is so that you don’t spend time pushing and pulling at things that do nothing.

Basket: The under seat basket has a capacity of 5 kg, which believe me you will need at some point!

Sun shield: A vital part of the design the sun shield on this pram is more than suitable to provide cover from the sun at most angles. Plus it includes a 50+ protective UV filter. Sometimes these sun shades barely cover the top of baby’s head, but this one is more than suitable.

I do quite often recommend Amazon as they have a great returns policy which is perfect for trying out at home and then sending back if necessary.
