So just before the kids headed back to school we decided to have one last day out and we chose the Tropical Bird Land. We also got sent the lovely Quinny Yezz pushchair and wanted to give it a good test run as we’d only been on short trips to the shops.
So far I absolutely love the pushchair and Jack loves being forward facing and being able to sit up and watch the world. With our other pushchair it only gives the option of laying flat, laying down but half up or sitting straight up and he sits really wonky and he just doesn’t like it but with the Quinny Yezz he’s sitting up but its curved so he sits perfectly in it. He giggles and smiles so much in it 🙂
It was really really easy to push around, everyone wanted a push 🙂 (it was also easy to assemble, so easy I did it on my own)
The pushchair has a footrest but also the wheel at the front has a little bit that looks like a footrest and Harry has taken this to be his little seat (I have no idea what I was doing in the second picture)
The only small negatives I could give it are..
- Small hood (we have a snoozeshade so it didn’t affect us)
- Not alot of storage. It has a small pouch at the back, the size of the seat which I used for my phone and purse. There is nowhere to hang any bags so no good for shopping. We have a BabyMule backpack style changing bag so again this was not an issue
- The wheels are similar to scooter wheels so wouldn’t be any good on rough terrain.
- It doesn’t lay down so may not be good when he wants to sleep but we’ve not had him fall asleep in it yet so it may not be too bad as it is quite curved (like a hammock) so it may not be OK
Other than those, which to us were not all a problem, we love it! It is super easy to fold and open and it’s really small when folded so great to pack in the car. It also has a strap on the back so when folded, you can pop it on your shoulder.
So back to the Tropical Birdland. I love that you can buy some food and then feed them all the way around.
Most of the birds are free to roam so you can get up close and personal, my teen son and Daddy did just that.
Harry loved it and I can’t believe how close he got
After a while Jack saw that he was missing some of the action and wanted to get out and get closer to the birds too
So that gave Harry the perfect excuse to get in on the pushchair action. He’s 4 now so no longer needs a pushchair but we let him for a short while just to stop him being grumpy. He actually fitted in it quiet well so if you have an older child or tall child that still needs a pushchair then this would be good for you.
After watching the birds, we let the kids let off some steam in the park
And then we finished with more holding of birds. One jumped on me and I may of screamed which of course, everyone thought was hilarious!
It was a great day out which we all enjoyed, well I’m not sure what Jack thought as his face looked like this for most of it
If we find the pushchair OK for jack to sleep in then we plan to take it away with us on holiday in October because the ease of it is just so appealing. We also plan to but the raincover so it can be used in the cooler weather.
*We were sent the Quinny Yezz pushchair for the purposes of review but all words and opinions are honest and my own.
