Ingelsina Zippy Stroller Features
Car Seat Compatible
The Inggelsina Zippy is a car seat compatible stroller. This means you can easily use it from the birth of your child till they no longer need a stroller. By using the Ingelsina car seat adapter (sold separately) you can attach car seats from Maxi-Cosi (Mico 30, Mico Max 30, Mico NXT), Cybex (Aton, Aton Q, Aton 2), and Nuna (Pipa, Pipa Lite).
The patented one-handed umbrella folding system makes folding the Zippy Light quick and easy.
Another great feature of the Zippy Light Stroller is that it fully reclines back and has an adjustable footrest. The fully reclining back is perfect for newborns, eliminating the need to attach a compatible infant car seat, as one typically does for the first six months. The seat position is adjustable with just one hand, squeezing a handle to move the seat from an almost flat sleeping position to upright.
Wondering what keeps your baby from bouncing around in their seat too much while out for a walk or a run? You have your stroller’s suspension system to thank. Just like on your bike or even your car, strollers feature suspension systems too. Some strollers feature all-wheel suspension and independent shocks, making them better at handling bumpy terrain, while others feature two-wheel suspension or even none at all, making for a bouncier ride.
Folding System / Storage
My favorite feature of the Zippy Light is the ease with which you can fold and unfold the stroller. Thanks to Inglesina’s patented umbrella folding system, you can literally do it with one hand! Considering just how often I’d need to fold and unfold it, that’s a feature that a first-time mom can appreciate.
A true space-saver when closed, the Zippy Light stands on its own for easy storage.
The 2018 Zippy Light offers a windowed mesh canopy to increase airflow and circulation, keeping your baby comfortable even on the warmest summer months. The mesh canopy is made with UPF 50+ fabric, offering maximum UV protection for your little passenger. Seat unit equipped with a canopy/hood that is extendable. The canopy/hood features a waterproof removable canopy. It also has a Peek-a-boo viewing window present on the canopy
Padded bumper bar is perfect for growing babies who want to sit up in the stroller and explore the world around them. You can consider it to be another safety net for your child, besides the safety harness. It’s great from a safety point of view, if the buggy was to ever to tip and roll over (would still recommend strapping in children), useful for hanging toys, you can hang a few of his favorite toys so that he doesn’t create outbursts when outdoors, you can hang a towel. The bumper bar simply provides you with one more means to keep your little one occupied when out for a stroller. The little one can play with the toys on the bar, or he can push it, pull it. More so, these bars have a soft grip all around for safety. If your baby leans too far forward, waves their arms, or kicks their legs and hits the Bumper Bar, the soft grip will not hurt them.
A belly bar is a feature that’s found on most full-size strollers. Think of a belly bar as an extra layer of safety and comfort for your little one, almost like a bumper. Covered in a soft padding, belly bars extend across the front seat of your stroller and give your little one something to hold onto as you stroll. You can also attach a toy to a belly bar to help keep your little one entertained. Belly bars are often removable.
A storage basket, also called an undercarriage basket, refers to the storage space underneath the seat of your stroller. There’s a huge range of storage basket sizes depending on your stroller model, from oversized to pretty tiny. If you know you’ll be using your stroller a lot and frequently hauling around a lot of stuff (think diaper bag, a blanket, toys for the park etc.) then you may opt for a stroller with a larger basket. If you plan to travel light, however, this feature won’t be as important to you.
A four-wheel stroller has four wheels arranged in a rectangle shape: two wheels up front and two in the back. This four-wheel stroller offers good stability and can fold easily and compactly. Because this is a more popular stroller configuration, there’s a larger selection of four-wheel strollers than three-wheel models. Front wheel diameter is 16 cm, while the rear wheel diameter is 16 cm. The wheels swivel just fine to move around the city corners. It is also lockable and removable.

- The stroller comes with a rain cover, which can be handy if you’re out and about when bad weather strikes.
- The cup holder attaches to the side rather than the top, minimizing a mess if your drink spills.
- The bumper bar is completely removable for easier access.
- A fairly spacious storage basket can fit any essentials you might need for your stroll.
- The seat recline is a bit tricky and hard to get right in one go.
- The handlebar is made up of 3 pieces and can bend while you’re steering.
- It takes time to get used to the handlebar because it collapses so you do have to pay attention to where you hold it.
- The handlebar is not adjustable.
