NEW! The Pliko Switch Compact Modular System

For years, we’ve offered our sleek Navetta XL bassinet to European customers. But for 2011, we’ll be offering it in the USA as part of a modular system!

Select stores will be carrying our new Pliko Switch Compact Modular System – a complete baby system that offers all you need from infancy through toddlerhood.

It comes with our Pliko Switch Compact stroller, our NHTSA-approved Primo Viaggio SIP 30/30 car seat and base, our Navetta XL infant bassinet, a bassinet stand, and a matching Borsa diaper bag. This complete system lets you transition from the nursery to the car to your destination with ease, as both the Primo Viaggio and the Navetta XL bassinet snap on to the Switch’s chassis.

With so many options, you’ll always have the perfect strolling solution for your needs.

1.      Use it as a Travel System. The Primo Viaggio car seat attaches directly to the Switch chassis.

2.      Use it as a carriage. The Navetta XL bassinet attaches to the Switch chassis and comes with a stylish cover and hood.

3.      Use it as a cradle. Bring the Navetta bassinet indoors to be used with the bassinet stand in baby’s nursery.

4.      Use it as a rear- or forward-facing stroller. The Switch stroller seat can face forwards or backwards, and it also has a 180-degree recline. Perfect for ensuring ultimate comfort.

Navetta XL Features:

  • Externally-adjustable backrest and leg rest.
  • Adjustable hood with window provides air circulation and a loop to dangle baby’s favorite toy.
  • Foldable legs help the Navetta XL stand on its own when indoors. Cover with windbreaker.
  • Convenient carrying handle adjusts up and down.
  • Protective polypropylene shell includes a stylish fabric covering.
  • External lever allows air circulation to be regulated within the bassinet – perfect for transition from warm to cool months

2011 Pliko Switch Compact

The Pliko Switch truly is the ultimate, full-featured compact stroller. With a reversible, removable stroller seat that also converts into a bassinet; an easy, convenient fold; and a size that’s trunk and errand-friendly, it’s no wonder some customers have hailed it as The Suburban Stroller.

And the 2011 model is even better!

In an effort to make it sleeker, smaller and lighter, our Italian engineers gave the Pliko Switch a complete overhaul. Maintaining the features you’ve come to love, they meticulously re-engineered dozens of the Switch’s components. The result is a refreshed look and a stroller that’s truly easier to use.

You’ll love how easily the stroller seat removes, thanks to an updated lever system. You’ll also love the improved front wheel locks that are much simpler to operate from a standing position.

These are just a few examples, but here is a longer list of features:


• Accepts the Primo Viaggio SIP 30/30 car seat directly to its frame (Primo Viaggio sold separately)
• Reversible, removable stroller seat
• Converts to a newborn-ready carriage
• One hand umbrella-style fold with the stroller seat facing either direction
• Standalone fold features
• Height adjustable handles with comfortable, rubber grip
• Side carrying handle.
• All-wheel suspension
• Front swivel wheels lock in place
• Rear independent step brakes
• Adult cup holder.
• Built-in rear footboard provides a safe ride for second passenger.
• Large storage basket
• Zippered canopy extends nearly to the snack tray. It can also be used as a sun canopy.
• Hood loop accommodates a light, dangling toy
• Five-point safety harness
• Hinged front tray opens and removes easily.
• Backrest reclines to several positions
• Leg rest adjusts to three positions

33.5″ x 22.25″ x 38.5″ (when opened)
21.7 lbs.
