There are few companies that truly understand great design. Apple, of course, is one, as their designs are simple and clean yet still boast more functionality than bulkier, more cluttered products. And in the world of strollers, there’s Quinny. If Steve Jobs and Jony Ive had teamed up to create a stroller, this would be it. Their Moodd stroller has beautifully clean lines that are enhanced by its white frame, and yet hidden in its design are numerous smart, well thought out design features and functions.
Let’s start with the basics. The Quinny Moodd stroller is a birth to 3 1/2 stroller that will quite literally take you anywhere. For ease of pushing, it’s fitted with two large rear wheels and a single, lockable wheel in the front. For city strolling and easy maneuvering, leave the front wheel unlocked, and the Moodd is easily the most maneuverable stroller I’ve ever used. When the terrain gets a little rougher or you’re going on a long walk in one direction, lock the front wheel for perfect straight line pushing. As an everyday, around town stroller, the Quinny Moodd is simply perfect to push.
Beyond the basics, Quinny’s Moodd is extremely versatile and easily adjustable. To start, the Quinny Moodd can be fitted with either a Quinny Bassinet (the Dreami or the Tukk), making it a perfect choice for newborns and up, but just as impressively, the Moodd is compatible with almost any car seat on the market, thanks to the Multi-Model Adapter. If you don’t want to use either a bassinet or car seat, Quinny’s standard reclining seat can be used from birth on up, providing a one size fits all option as well, and it works wonderfully. For newborns or tired toddlers, recline the seat and adjust the footrest up for a perfectly quiet afternoon stroll. To give your child a better view, turn the seat facing forward and let them take in the world. Rotating the seat is incredibly quick and easy, as is making adjustments to the seating position. And while your child is riding in perfect comfort, Quinny thought about your comfort as well, making adjusting the handlebar height to perfectly fit you so easy and accessible you can adjust as you go.
Quinny also considered safety in its design, incorporating a UV +50 sun shade that extends down to protect even the fairest of skin. And for days that are anything but sunny, the rain cover and repellant fabric come in extremely handy. The fabric used on the Moodd is especialy worth noting, as chances are something is going to get spilled or mud is going to be tracked in on little feet. The fabric on both the seat and the bassinets are easy to clean, keeping the Moodd looking like new no matter how dirty things get.
Storage wise, the Moodd comes with an integrated shopping basket that can hold up to 11 pounds, and if you’re headed to the farmer’s market or plan on doing a bigger amount of shopping, I recommend the Quinny Box that attaches between the split rear wheels as well as the matching Zapp Xtra cupholder for your morning coffee or fresh squeezed juice. For everyday use, the Quinny Moodd modular storage has everything you need to stow your goods while you take your child on the go .
There’s no question that you’ll first fall in love with the Quinny Moodd based on its design, it is as much art as it is a stroller. But with it’s one button unfolding, its customizable options, smooth and easy steering and it’s brilliant design features, you’ll come to love your Quinny Moodd for so much more than its beauty. For those that love great design and are looking to minimize their amount of baby gear, the Moodd is exactly what you’ve been looking for.
