If you don’t find the answer to your question, don’t hesitate to write us!

Can a ZEN stroller be used from birth?

Yes, the ZEN stroller is truly versatile. For a newborn, it is paired with a bassinet/bouncer. It has a flat-lying or parent-facing seated position, which means it can be used for much longer than other bassinets.

When would the ZEN bassinet/bouncer be used?

This is a folding bassinet/bouncer, which can be used:

• On the ZEN stroller, as a bassinet (lying fully flat), or as a parent-facing seat (seated position).

• When standing on its legs, it becomes a bouncer or a travel crib.


• Your child wakes up while strolling in the park? Just raise the backrest so he can admire the scenery!

• Visiting friends? Your baby stays with you, comfy in her ZEN bouncer! The ZEN bassinet/bouncer is the only one that complies with standards for strollers, bassinets, and bouncers.

What is the maximum weight allowed in a ZEN bassinet/bouncer?

A BABYZEN ZEN bassinet is suitable for children up to 9 kg (9-12 months, depending on their body type).

Is it tricky to fold and unfold a ZEN?

Nothing could be easier! ZEN strollers are totally flat-folding (25 cm) thanks to a patented 3-wheel folding system. They are the only strollers in their category that easily fit into the trunk of a small car (like a Mini or a Fiat 500), without removing the wheels or seat. The ZEN is naturally free-standing, and can even be trolleyed on its back wheels in this position!

Is the handlebar adjustable?

Yes, it has 3 positions (minimum height 98 cm - maximum height 109 cm).

Is the seat reclinable?

Yes, the backrest has three positions.

Do I need to secure the front wheel for off-road use?

This is no longer necessary on any of the BABYZEN brands! Its front suspension and patented "Soft Drive" steering ensure that it constantly adapts to ground conditions, without having to lift a finger. Thanks to its three fully suspended, puncture-proof big wheels, the ZEN is just as suited to cities as to the countryside. For rougher surfaces through sand or snow, it can be towed using the front handle.

How does the warning lamp work?

The ZEN comes with a LED headlamp at the front, which charges automatically through a solar cell. Just remember to switch it on under the frame! If the ZEN has been stored for a long period of time, it will need to be exposed to daylight for 2 hours before switching on the light.

How much does the ZEN bassinet/bouncer weigh?

The bassinet only weighs 3.6 kg. It can easily be carried around, either in the bassinet or the bouncer position, using the canopy handle.

How much does the ZEN weigh?

The frame alone weighs 9.7 kg. Fully equipped with a seat and canopy, the ZEN only weighs 10.8 kg.

What are the dimensions of the ZEN stroller when folder?

A folded ZEN only measures 88 x 55 x 25 cm.

And unfolded?

An unfolded ZEN measures 95 x 60 x 98 to 109 cm, depending on the handlebar height.

Can the ZEN bassinet be used as a car seat for a newborn?

No, ZEN bassinets are not certified for being placed in a car, for safety reasons. Most countries forbid the use of rigid "car bassinets".

A rear-facing 0+ Group car seat is the only solution for safely transporting an infant in a car.

What car seats are compatible with a ZEN stroller?

BABYZEN adapters are sold separately. Compatible car seat: Recaro® Young Profi Plus.

Can fabrics be removed and washed?

Yes, all ZEN stroller and bassinet fabrics can easily be taken off and machine washed at 30 °C.

Can I change colors easily?

Yes, of course, ZEN seat pads are sold separately, they are reversible and come in a range of assorted colors. Change colors whenever you like!

Does it include a rain shield?

Yes, the ZEN comes with two very protective and easy to install rain shields (one for the bassinet/bouncer position, the other when used as a carry cot).

What materials is ZEN made of?

It has an aluminum frame and high performance plastics, provided by our partner DuPont, world leader for technical plastics.

Without any plastic wrapping, our cardboard packaging is recycled and printed with soy-based inks.

Can the ZEN stroller be recycled?

Yes - all its components are assembled with screws, making the ZEN easier to take apart and recycle.
