Quinny Countdown

Quinny BuzzBecause inquiring minds want to know…

We’ve gotten some projected ship dates from Dorel for Quinny and Maxi Cosi. From what we’re hearing, the Quinny Buzz will arrive in May, the Maxi Cosi car seats will arrive in mid-June and the Quinny Zapp should be here in July.

  1. Do you know how I can find out which stores will carry the Quinny Buzz and the Maxi Cosi car seat?

  2. It looks like their website is still under construction. I know that we’ll have them, though, for what it’s worth. I also would expect their website to be up and running with a store locator within the next month or so.

  3. Can we go on the waitlist for the zapp now?

  4. Sure you can – send an e-mail to nicole@NOSPAMmbeans.com and she will take care of it for you. (Remove “NOSPAM” from the e-mail address before you send it)

  5. Baby Style said they will be carrying them.

  6. Anyone know if the style of the Buzz is changing for the US distribution?

  7. Oh! And will it still fit with a Euro 2006 Cabrio and Dreami?

  8. The Buzz is not changing substantially for the US market. Our version looks exactly like the European one. The Zapp is changing from a three wheel design to a four wheel design, due to differences between stability requirements in the US vs. Europe.

    From what I have heard, the US version of the Maxi Cosi seat will be compatible with European adaptors, but this is unconfirmed. Assuming that is the case, it should stand to reason that older versions of Maxi Cosi seats will be compatible, but I think it’s not legal to use foreign car seats in the US.

  9. will the zapp recline at all?

  10. The Zapp does not recline at all. I am sad to hear that the US version is going to have four wheels. The only reason why we bought the Zapp from Europe is it’s tripod design. Well, I guess I will keep bugging my parents to send over a new Quinny ­čÖé

  11. I wonder if they’ll finally fix the screened Quinny logos that rub off when you breathe on them.

  12. i know of two sites that will be carrying them: http://www.adolcebaby.com and http://www.elitecarseats.com. they already have them loaded on their websites.

  13. I hear alot from diffferent vendors saying that they are expecting the quinnys and maxi-cosis here in the us. Only odd to me is that I have yet to see a press release or anything from dorel. I already have my buzz, zapp and cabrio-fix, but I was just curious about it.

  14. It is interesting that Dorel hasn’t done any PR in the US yet surrounding the arrival of Quinny and Maxi Cosi. But we’ve definitely submitted orders and signed a very substantial dealer contract, so I’m fairly confident they are en route. If I hear anything new, you’ll all be the first to know.

  15. I’m sure they will arrive.. For instance the Boon flair high-chair. I pre-ordered in dec, and every month that goes by, it gets pushed back another month.

  16. Hi
    I would like to know if the US version maxicosi car seat (maxi cosi Mico) is compatible with European Zapp stroller (european adaptors)??? I tried to ask the Dorel but they need item number that I don’t have rather than just the name of the product.

  17. Does anyond know if the maxi cosi “tobi” car seats are coming to the US soon? If not, I guess I’ll have to order from UK, but will wait if they are coming. These are more cool than the “priori.”

  18. We just bought a Mico last week at a Texas retailer (Sept 2007). We also have a European 3-wheel Zapp, and couldn’t get a straight answer from anybody on compatibility. So we went to a retailer that had them in stock and tried it on our stroller in the store. Here’s the skinny: As far as I can tell, the adapters are the same. The Mico fits our 2005 Zapp we bought in Spain. It doesn’t release from the stroller as smoothly as I’d like, but I’d say that about every american car seat and their base. A week after we bought it, we finally got an answer from the email I sent to Quinny a month before. They said it is not compatible for safety reasons. I think that just means that the three wheel version is more likely to tip than the four if you are not careful, so they modified the Zapp for the US to have four wheels for safety/legal reasons. So the best bet if you have a euro Zapp (and I’m not sure about the Buzz) is take it to a retailer that has the Mico in stock and try it. It will probably fit, but be advised you can’t sue Quinny/Dorel if you choose to use a Mico with a European stroller.
