Big City Strollers!

Navigating San Francisco, Chicago, New York or any big city can be difficult when you have to do it with a stroller. So here are our picks for the best Peg Perego strollers for big city life!

1.      Pliko Switch Modular System – With a separate, nursery-ready bassinet component, this compact-folding stroller is number one when it comes to being city-savvy.

Use it as a carriage to walk the city streets when baby is a newborn. The included Bassinet Stand saves space in the nursery and the convenient cover sees to it that baby stays warm.

If you need to catch a cab with your newborn, it’s not a problem! Attach the included Primo Viaggio SIP infant seat to the chassis and you have a great travel system. Once you hail a cab, the infant seat can be secured in the backseat by using a seat belt, while the Switch’s chassis easily folds and stores in the trunk.

Once baby’s a bit older, you’ll want to transition to the traditional stroller seat. Luxurious fabric and multiple recline and footrest options ensure baby stays comfortable when you’re on lengthy outings. Plus, the stroller is lightweight and compact enough to make bus or subway travel do-able!

2.      Pliko Mini – So light and easy to fold, the Mini is perfect for public transportation! It’s easy to get on and off buses and trains, plus it folds so compactly, making it more than taxi-ready.

If you’re a city parent who’s looking for the best lightweight stroller that will follow you from the apartment to the cab to the store, look no further than the Pliko Mini!

Those are our big city picks! What do you use when navigating an urban metropolis?

2011 Vela Easy Drive

Just like the Pliko P3 and Pliko Switch saw some improvements for 2011, the Vela is no different.

Introducing the Vela Easy Drive – the perfect stroller for indoor activities, such as shopping, errand-running and mall-going.

Moving away from the 3-wheel configuration, the Vela Easy Drive adds a second front wheel, making it smoother and more maneuverable. This is because the two front wheels incorporate the same ball-bearing technology that we use on the Skate System!

You’ll love our expanded fabric selection, too. From sporty to classy, there’s a look for you!
