2011 High Chairs

For 2011, we’re offering three great high chairs – the Tatamia, Prima Pappa Best and Prima Pappa Diner.

Tatamia

This 3-in-1 high chair system transitions as baby grows! First, it’s a comfortable infant recliner. Then, as baby requires a bit more stimulation, it becomes a smooth-rocking swing. And finally, as baby transitions away from bottles, it transforms into a high chair that will be with baby through toddlerhood!

So if you’re looking for the ultimate high chair solution, look no further than the Tatamia.

Features

  • Meets every phase of a child’s life, from newborn to toddler
  • Converts to:
  1. A comfortable Infant Recliner
  2. A soothing, relaxing Swing
  3. A space-saving, luxurious high chair/youth chair
  • Height adjustable-seat moves to nine different heights
  • Comfortable 4-position seat recline and 3-position adjustable footrest
  • Floor-friendly castor wheels automatically lock for safety
  • Buttons on top of the chair’s supports release wheel locks and allow chair to smoothly move from room to room
  • Space-saving footprint and easy spring-loaded design that folds compactly
  • Dishwasher-safe double tray for easier clean-ups
  • 5-point safety harness and passive restraint bar

Prima Pappa Diner

Full of personality, the Diner has easy-to-clean vinyl upholstery in fun patterns! Numerous features and a stylish appearance round out this all-around great high chair. And, as many of our customers have attested, it will last for years (and babies!) to come.

Features

  • Fun vinyl upholstery wipes clean
  • One-hand tray removal
  • Tray stores on back of chair
  • Height adjustable-seat moves to seven different heights
  • Tilt-in-Space seat recline adds comfort for baby

  • Floor-friendly castor wheels include a one-step lock
  • Comes fully assembled and ready to use
  • Simple to fold

Prima Pappa Best

This upscale Prima Pappa option boasts finely-tailored upholstery and durable engineering. With the addition of a storage net and an adjustable footrest to the Prima Pappa frame, it’s no wonder we call this chair the “Best”!

Features

  • Stylish, sculpted backrest covered in stain-resistant “Prima Classe” upholstery wipes clean
  • One-hand tray removal
  • Tray stores on back of chair
  • Handy storage net sits behind seat
  • Height adjustable-seat moves to seven different heights
  • Tilt-in-Space seat recline adds comfort for baby

  • Dishwasher-safe double tray for easier clean-ups
  • 5-point safety harness and passive restraint bar
  • Floor-friendly castor wheels include a one-step lock
  • Comes fully assembled and ready to use
  • Simple to fold

Did you know that our Prima Pappa chair was the first high chair on the market to introduce a seat recline feature? It’s true!

What to Buy: Pliko Switch Compact vs. Pliko P3 Compact vs. Si

Peg Perego offers many compact-folding strollers within the Pliko line that are great for day to day use. But how do you know which one is right for your family?

The basic rule is that the Pliko Switch Compact is the ultimate option within the Pliko line, and its removable, reversible seat is the reason why. Within seconds the seat can switch from rear-facing (where baby is facing mom) to forward-facing (where baby is facing the world ahead!). This easy reversibility is essential as baby grows and gets more curious about the world around him. Plus, it allows the Primo Viaggio SIP infant car seat to attach directly to the stroller’s chassis!

Second to the Switch is the Pliko P3 Compact. This is often referred to as a go-to stroller, because it has so many great features and is easy to push and maneuver. Parents often reach for the P3 when they just need a reliable, dependable stroller that will adapt no matter what the day may bring.

Third in line is the Si. Great for extensive travel, the Si handles public and air transportation with ease but is also fully-featured enough to immediately transition to out-and-about activities.

Lastly, the Pliko Mini is the lightest, most basic option in the Pliko line. It’s ideal for errands, indoor settings, and even public transportation thanks to its ability to stand alone when folded! (Click here to see the comparison chart on the Pliko Mini).

For a quick product comparison, here’s a reference chart for the Switch, P3 and Si:

Pliko Switch Compact Pliko P3 Compact Si
Tagline The compact convertible stroller The everyday stroller The travel-ready stroller

2011 Uno

A true luxury stroller, the Uno is the answer for many parents looking for a straightforward, full-featured answer to the many stroller systems available on the market today.

Here are five reasons we love the Uno:

1.      Large rear wheels help the Uno navigate snowy climates and rough terrain.

2.      An easy stroller-to-carriage conversion follows baby from infancy to toddlerhood without requiring extra components or accessories.

3.      The reversible handlebar transitions the stroller from forward- to rear-facing in seconds.

4.      The included leg cover gives the carriage a sleek look and protects baby in the winter.

5.      Ganciomatic hooks pop out from beneath the seat cushion, quickly turning the Uno into a Travel System (Primo Viaggio SIP 30/30 car seat sold separately).

The Uno is recommended for the Northern Parent, the Rural Parent, and Beach Babies.

Features

-        Reversible handlebar has variable height adjustments and a detachable cup holder.

-        Our Primo Viaggio SIP 30/30 car seat (sold separately) attaches easily to retractable hooks.
