Stroller Alert: New Quinny Buzz Colors!

Quinny has revealed the new colors for their Buzz Stroller! The new colors are nice but I have to admit I'm a little disappointed. The 2007 colors were bright and unexpected, and they featured interesting color combinations such as pink and orange. The 2008 colors are a little tamer. There's Gold, Strawberry (more red than pink), Apple (more like Sage Green in my opinion), and Black. Instead of featuring a unique color on the outside of the stroller, the 2008 models are simply dark gray (for the Gold, Apple, and Black) or black (for the Strawberry). See the new colors for yourself here.

I suppose grey and black go with everything, but, well...it makes me think of Bugaboo. And while Quinny has a unique design all its own, I also loved how brave they were with their 2007 colors. In my opinion, which I shared back in April on this blog, the design plus the colors really set them apart in the high end stroller market. Then again, maybe moms and dads don't want crazy color combinations.

The 2008 Quinny strollers will be available at Strollers.com in just a couple of weeks. I've posted a photo of the 2008 Quinny in Gold because it's my favorite of the new colors (I'm a sucker for yellow).

So tell me: What do you think about Quinny's new colors?

Yeah, I have to agree with the Patroller... The new colours are blah. Even the Yellow, which is a different stroller colour, is totally muted and gross. Bring back the brights, Quinny!
