All in all a very versatile pushchair, and I would definitely buy again.

Excerpt: I purchased this pushchair when I swapped from a bigger chunky pram. This was 3.5 years ago and it's still going strong, now being used my by 2nd! The seat unit itself has plenty of room and the straps go very large, both my children have only ever used them on smallest setting. The original raincover did rip along the zip, as it zips around the hood unit. Found a universal one that pics perfect.
Excerpt: Given the retail price of this stroller, I was expecting something amazing. We replaced a McLaren Vogue which had been through SEVEN children, and had high hopes for the Frankie. Sadly, I don't think it will deliver. The hood, however, is flimsy and now broken in three places. It cannot be repaired, and the manufacturers will replace for £50. This is really disappointing.
Excerpt: I had this stroller for two weeks before taking it back and getting a new one! This was a completly over priced piece of equipment! I brought the buggy as i believed that Mamas and Papas have a good reputation for quality products how wrong was I. After three days of having this product the squeaks that came from the wheels left me embarassed to use it.
Excerpt: I bought my Mamas & Papas Frankie Ziko when we saw an ex-display model on sale for a hefty discount. I bought the Mushy Peas colour way- a combination of dark green exterior and seat, with bright green lining and I have to say we had lots of compliments on the colour! I found this pushchair sturdy and easy to push. My only slight issue with it was that if I was walking particularly fast then the front wheels had a tendency to skid, making it hard to steer.
Excerpt: i got this buggy when mt daughter was 12 months we had to take it back a few weeks later due to a screw coming loose mamas and papas replaced this straight away and that one was fine for the next few months then problems began as my daughtewr got older and heavyer the breaks would not hold on the bus they clicked on every time we go to bump it downsatairs and you can not tighten the straps at all my daughter has climbed out hundreds of times i have run her over twice...
A great looking functional pushchair if you don't mind the freedom harness

Excerpt: I was first attracted to the Mamas & Papas Ziko Frankie by the shiny chrome frame and single front wheels, which to me made it stand out from all of the other standard umbrella folding strollers on the market. The Frankie that I had was in "Suit Me" fabric which was a very dark blue pin stripe and was made to look like suit fabric. It really looked superb and the attention to detail was brilliant.
Excerpt: Im addicted to buggys but this one out of them all is the best 1 i have ever had!! I always wanted the i'coo pluto because of the chrome and stylish frame but i didnt like the price tag that came with it so i went on a search for one and a frankie ziko by mamas and papas sprung up i ended up buying a frankie in bubblegum because of the girlie pink and purple colours and of course the chrome stable chassis!!
Excerpt: I bought the Ziko Frankie for my son as a 2nd light weight pram to keep in the car. I have been through a few buggies, like the zapp, petite star and this pushchair just out shines them all. It looks great and feels sturdy. I chose the nicey, brown and green colour scheme as it would do a little girl incase I have another baby whereas the girlie colours just wouldn't do for a boy! The pushchair is a dream to push and steers so well with no feeling of tipping.
Excerpt: I have had the Ziko Frankie 'nicey' buggy for around a year. It looks great because it has a silver aluminium frame. It says it is suitable from birth but it does not lay completely flat so it isn't great for newborns (their spines should be completely flat until they are around 1 month old). It has a viewing panel in the hood which is useful.
Excerpt: I think these buggy's are so cool! I bought a mamas and papas ziko frankie in the limited edition bubble gum fabric and loved it to bits very pretty and very girly so my little girl loved it too which always helps when you need to go out and little one is screaming the place down. The chrome chassi is so nice and a real eye catcher when out for a walk, i got lots of comments on it.
