Review | Zeta Citi Stroller

27th April 2017

We took our first trip abroad as a family in April 2017 so I spent lots of time looking for fold up stroller that would be easy to transport from here to Mallorca via the plane and coach. I didn’t want to spend a small fortune on something that would only be used a handful of times, but at the same time I didn’t want to compromise on comfort and style. While browsing online I discovered the Zeta Citi Stroller. This post is all about our experience with the Zeta Citi Stroller. This Zeta Citi review covers us owning the pushchair for two and a half years. We’ve used it with our first born Dexter and subsequently with our second son, Felix, once he was old enough for a pushchair. If you have any questions on the Zeta Citi, including instructions on how to fold or unfold the chair, that are not answered here, feel free to post them in the comments and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.

The first thing that attracted me to the Zeta Citi Stroller was the price- only £37.95 on Amazon. (Now £38.95) Naturally with a price tag that small I was worried about that I’d be receiving a product that wasn’t built to last, but I can happily say, we’ve had out Zeta Citi pushchair for over two years now, and although we don’t use it everyday, it has certainly lasted.

When the pushchair arrived I was pleased to see it was already assembled  which made my life so much easier. I am so rubbish at putting things together, I have zero patience and my brain can never understand the instructions, so I was super pleased to get the stroller out of the box with no assembly necessary.

The main priority for me was that the Zeta Citi Stroller could fold and unfold easily and was compact in size once folded. The Zeta easily unfolds by pulling a lever, pushing the seat down and pushing down one further lever to straighten it out. To fold back up, you simply push one lever down, while pulling the other up and the pushchair folds into itself in an umbrella style. The stroller is lightweight, weighing only 7kg which makes it easy to carry, while the dimensions of it when folded are 103cm x 26cm x 20cm. The Zeta Citi pushchair fits easily in the boot of our car, in the cupboard under the stairs and is a doddle to take on the plane whenever we go abroad.

I also wanted a pushchair that could recline so the baby could sleep while we were by the pool or on the beach with a sun shade to block out the strong midday sun. The Zeta Citi reclines into three positions, the final one is a fully reclines position meaning your baby or toddler will be on his back The only issue I have found is the difficulty in getting the chair to recline. The levers are a little bit stiff and it takes a stronger hand than my own to do it. Once reclined though, it is easy to get it back up again. The Zeta comes with a sunshade which can be pulled out and gives great coverage from the sun.

The straps in the pushchair are easy to tighten and loosen and ensure baby stays in the pushchair at all times. One strap comes between the legs and there is a strap for each arm. The three meet in the middle and lock together. To release you simply press the button.

 

Underneath the Zeta Citi Stroller is a small shopping basket which can hold a few items of shopping: perhaps a large bottle of water, a few packets of crisps and a towel. Once the seat is reclined however, it is difficult to retrieve the items from the basket which is worth bearing in mind if baby falls asleep on the way to the beach.

The stroller doesn’t come with a raincover but one can be purchased easily and cheaply via Amazon.

The Zeta Citi Stroller Raincover seen above is available on Amazon for less than £10. Click here!

Overall I am happy with the Zeta Citi Stroller, especially considering the price I paid. If you are looking for a cheap stroller which you will only use a handful of times, then this one is fantastic value and does the job that is required.

    What a bargain – great for holidays, then it doesn’t matter if it gets bashed around on the plane!
