Nicolaas Quint founded Quinny in the 1950s in the Netherlands. Back then, the company traded in small baby products.

It wasn’t until 1989 that Quinny buggies and strollers were available.  

The unique design of the Quinny Yezz Air is probably what stands out the most – it’s definitely much more stylish than any of the similar strollers on the market.

The Yezz Air is part of Quinny’s lightweight range, which also includes the standard Quinny Yezz, and the Zapp Xpress (7.6kg)

It weighs (and costs!) less than the Babyzen Yoyo+, which is 6.2kg and around £369, and it’s slightly heavier than the 4.9kg Joie Aire Lite (£100) but 100 times more stylish.

It’s basically a buggy with skateboard wheels!

We tested this buggy on all London transport, at a theme park, beach, park, and at restaurants.

You can buy the Quinny Yezz Air from Precious Little One, Amazon, and Kiddicare.

First impressions of the Quinny Yezz Air?

I literally love this buggy. Compared to my old Maclaren Quest it is a dream.

The design is super stylish. I’ve never been stopped and asked where I bought my buggy from before – or asked how it works by so many strangers. It’s definitely got that ‘cool’ factor.  

However, the sun hood isn’t very big and you’ll probably need to purchase an additional rain cover (£25) or never leave the house.

What is the difference between the Quinny Yezz and Quinny Yezz Air?

quinny-yezz-air-lightweight-stroller_yezzair10

The main difference is the fabric used for the seat. The Quinny Yezz uses a light waterproof fabric for its hammock seat, whereas the Yezz Air seat has been created using “high-tech 3D knitting technology”, according to Quinny.

Essentially this means that the seat fabric is breathable and has an elasticity to it, which makes it super comfy.

The Yezz Air also comes in two colours (black/white and aqua blend) while the Yezz has a choice of four colours.

Pricewise, the Yezz Air is £199, compared to £175 for the Yezz.

How compact is it when unfolded and when folded?

Amazingly so. It measures 69cm x 24cm x 29cm when folded and 57cm wide by 79cm long and 104cm high when unfolded.

The Yezz Air is compact and easy to manage. Its ingenious chassis means it folds and unfolds in seconds.

How does it ride on different surfaces?

The Yezz is extremely manoeuvrable due to its front swivel skate wheels. Perfect for nipping in and out, but it’s not good on rough terrain.

Especially not ideal for pushing over the pebbles on the beach – I had to drag it backwards.

It also won’t push easily on long grass. Despite being so lightweight it does feel pretty sturdy. You do need to be careful not to catch the wheels going down kerbs or going over cracks in the pavement or bumps.

It’s slightly wider than some other strollers so sometimes you can underestimate and end up basing it.

Is the handle adjustable – what do you think of it?

No. but it’s curved and easy to push with one hand.

What is the weight of the buggy and does it feel light/heavy?

5.6kg – it feels so light. It’s so light even my six-year-old daughter could help me carry her brother up the stairs.

How easy is it to store?

Very easy, especially as it folds so compactly and is freestanding when folded.

Is it value for money, for what it is?

It costs £199 so It’s not the cheapest but worth it if you can afford as a secondary buggy.

What do you think of the height of the buggy?

It’s 104cm in height and I’m 5ft 5ins and it was fine for me. My partner is 5ft 9ins and he found it easy to push too. Maybe someone really tall would find it too low. 

Can you use a rain cover with it?

Yes, but you have to buy a rain cover separately (£29).

Is the frame strong, durable?

Yes. It may be light and compact, but it’s also pretty sturdy despite being so light and easy to use.

Does it recline?

No. It doesn’t recline but George still slept happily without any problems. It wouldn’t be suitable for a tiny baby though – the recommended age is 6 months to three years old.

How comfortable does it feel for your little ones?

quinny-yezz-air-lightweight-stroller_yezzair12

The mesh looks super cosy but there is no recline for when they fall asleep. Although George wasn’t fussed about that and managed to sleep very easily.

What do you think of the hood? Can it be used as sun protection?

I think it is too small to use as sun protection.

Would it be good for holidays?

It’s brilliant for travelling as it’s so light – only around 5kgs and even has a carrying strap so you can pull it over your shoulder.

Buggies for holiday goers

What is the storage like?

It’s not the buggy you would take to do the weekly shop – as it doesn’t have loads of storage.  There is a mesh pocket (the Yezz has a large pocket at the back of the seat which can take up to 2kgs) – so nappies, wipes, a book, mobile and purse and spare outfit but nothing else.

Does it fit in the boot of your car?

It’s a great one to keep in the boot of the car and takes up very little space.

What age child is it best for?

It is sold as being suitable for 6 months to three years. But I reckon it suits from 12 months plus better as some 6 months old babies can’t sit up unaided.

Who would this pushchair be most useful for?

Urban city dweller or traveller. Or busy busy mum like me!

What’s in the box?

  • Quinny Yezz Air
  • Instructions

Is it easy/hard to build the product? Instructions useful? How long does it take?

Easy – 5 minutes. It arrives in two parts and the material for the seat attaches to the chassis of the buggy

What would you have wanted to know before you purchased the item?

There was no rain cover or storage for shopping.

MadeForMums verdict:

I would absolutely recommend this product. It changed my life. It feels like having a buggy without actually having a buggy. You can go to a friend’s house, restaurant or anywhere and not worry that your buggy will take up any room.

I live in a small flat – so this is amazing. If you don’t have a car and need to do your weekly shop on foot – this isn’t the buggy for you. Although I was more than happy to go out with a rucksack on my back and this buggy – rather than drive to be honest. Definitely a summer buggy though.
