Enjoy the Magic (with the right stroller!)

How do you make the happiest place on earth even happier? With a happy baby of course!

If you’re planning a trip to Disney this summer (or Six Flags, or Universal Studios, or wherever), a little thought into which stroller to bring along can make all the difference.

So what would our top picks be?

You really can’t go wrong with the Pliko P3 Compact. It has all of the best features of a full-sized stroller (multi-position recline, travel system compatibility, large canopy, snack tray), but it also has a one–hand compact “umbrella fold” that allows for quick closing and carrying. Plus, you’ll love its adjustable handles, large storage basket and adult cup holder when you’re walking around the park. And, if an older sibling gets tired (which almost always happens during long days at the park, right?), they can hop on the Pliko P3 Compact’s rear footboard.

If you like to travel light—and you really need just a toddler stroller—consider the Pliko Mini. At only 13 pounds, the Pliko Mini has an easy fold, a deep recline (which is great for sleepy toddlers) and adjustable handles for mom and dad. Plus, this stroller comes in some great vibrant colors (making your stroller much easier to find in the sea of carriage, strollers, and wagons you’ll no doubt encounter at the park).

Got two little ones? Consider the Aria Twin 60/40. It’s super lightweight, and you’ll love how this compact side-by-side maneuvers through crowds, and even fits through doorways! Plus, keeping two children happy is easy with the individual adjustable hoods, individual reclining backrests and individual child snack trays.

Did you have a different model in mind? Ask us about it! We love helping families find the perfect strollers, wherever they go!

And for the very best in-person customer care and service, shop a Peg Perego authorized retailer. Use our Where to Buy tool to find one near you.

Viaggio sicuro! (Safe travels!)

Buying for Baby: Gift Registry Essentials

In our more than 60 years of designing and manufacturing high-quality products for babies and children, we at Peg Perego have gained some understanding about what it takes to prepare for a new baby.

It’s a joyful and beautiful time, but there is also so much to do!

To help, we’ve created a short checklist for all the gear you’ll need—and want—for your new baby.

Infant Car Seat: The most important consideration here is safety. Make sure to get a new car seat that complies with National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) standards. Peg Perego’s celebrated Primo Viaggio SIP 30/30 has been specially created to keep baby safe from the very start. Designed for infants from 5 to 30 pounds (or up to 30 inches), the Primo Viaggio SIP 30/30 features a quick-release five-point safety harness with shoulder pads and a fail-safe buckle; adjustable Side Impact Protection (SIP); and a special removable cushion for newborns.

Stroller: When selecting a stroller for a newborn, there are some special considerations. First, you need a stroller that either has a full recline or offers the option to attach a car seat and/or bassinet. Several of our strollers have a full recline, and nearly all of them will take a car seat. A modular system (like our Skate System or our Pliko Switch Compact Modular System) are also great options, especially if you’re looking to get everything you need for a new baby in one convenient purchase.

High Chair: If you want to keep your baby nearby during meals, considering getting a high chair with a seat that reclines for very young infants. All of our high chairs have a tilt-in-space seat that’s perfect for young babies, even newborns. Other important features are a secure and comfortable restraint system (a five-point harness with a passive restraint is best); a wide, sturdy base; adjustable height; and a one-hand tray release. And if you’re looking for a multipurpose high chair, consider our Tatamia. Recently included in Fit Pregnancy’ s list of Registry Essentials, the Tatamia transforms from a baby recliner to a baby swing to a high chair, meeting your child’s needs at every stage, from newborn to toddler.

High Chairs with High Style

When it comes to baby gear, form almost always follows function. But that doesn’t mean you can’t find great-looking pieces for your home!

Just check out Peg Perego’s lineup of chic high chairs. With three designs (all straight from Milan!) to choose from—the Prima Pappa Diner, the Prima Pappa Best, and the Tatamia—you’re bound to find a high chair that meets your lifestyle and your style.

With its fun, childish prints, the Prima Pappa Diner adds a touch of whimsy to our modern take on the classic high chair. This quick-folding chair boasts easy-to-clean vinyl upholstery and our much-loved dishwasher-safe double tray. And like all of our high chairs, it comes fully assembled and ready to use.

Our Prima Pappa Best has a similar classic style, but with its finely tailored, buttery-soft (and stain-resistant!) “Prima Classe” upholstery, it feels a little more upscale. It has all the same features as the Diner, including non-scratching rubber wheels, an adjustable recline, and seven different height adjustments, as well as a few little sophisticated extras, like an adjustable footrest and storage basket.

Check out our full-length Prima Pappa Best product video:

Our Tatamia (which was just featured on “Ellen” last week!) is the ultimate in modern style and innovation. This sleek multipurpose seat can be used as a high chair, an infant recliner, or a baby swing. While the Tatamia will surely be baby’s favorite seat in the house for all it does, with its sleek, sophisticated design, you’ll love the Tatamia for the way it looks.

Peg Perego on ‘Ellen’ Today!

Ellen loves Peg Perego! Especially, the Peg Perego Tatamia!

Peg Perego makes top-of-the-line baby products,” the popular talk show host told her audience of very excited mothers-to-be on today’s show. “Not only is it a high chair, but it also turns into a recliner…and it swings as well! All that, in one thing! Isn’t that great? I love that!”

Ellen selected the Peg Perego Tatamia as one of the gifts she gave away today on her special Mother’s Day Show. And she couldn’t say enough about the Tatamia and all of its amazing features!

“It’s so smart,” Ellen said. “You used to have all of these different things, and now one thing does it all for you!”

The Tatamia is smart indeed!

The Peg Perego Tatamia is so much more than a high chair! The multi-purpose chair transforms from a baby recliner to a baby swing and then to high chair. It has a space-saving footprint, can easily be rolled throughout the house, and features a height-adjustable seat. Plus, its dishwasher-safe double tray makes cleanup a breeze! And you’ll love its sleek and stylish design!

Mom Knows Best: Real Moms Review the Pliko P3 Compact

In honor of Mother’s Day, we at Peg Perego wanted to pay special tribute to moms everywhere by sharing what real moms are saying about some of our products.

First, we wanted to share a review from Dana at BabyElanDaily.com. This mother of three young boys, who is currently pregnant with her first girl (congratulations Dana!), has “a passion—and a weakness—for shopping for the hottest, must-have, luxe items.”

After more than 10 years with one stroller, she tried and fell in LOVE with the Peg Perego Pliko P3 Compact. “I adore the compact design!” she writes. “It’s easy, no, amazingly simple to maneuver even with a heavy two year old in it…and did I mention it comes with a cup holder??”

She continues, “If you’re a new parent or parent-to-be with no experience in the stroller department, Peg Perego is a brand you’ll want to get behind for sure! Reliable, tested and proven by moms all over, and with modern designs to die for, you’ll love them for years!”

You can Dana’s entire review here.

We also invite you to check out a review from Tanya at GrowingYourBaby.com. This mom of one “handsome little boy,” loved the Peg Perego Pliko P3 Compact for its fixed, five-point harness; abundant fabric options; extremely generous canopy; smaller, lightweight frame; and built-in rear footboard.

“Busy parents will appreciate that the Pliko P3 Compact features a one-hand fold,” Tanya writes. “It allows easy, quick closing and carrying, and being lightweight, it is the perfect stroller for traveling by air or public transportation.”

You can read Tanya’s entire review here.

We want to hear what you think of our products too! Post a comment,”like” us on Facebook, or send us an email at peregoservice@perego.com.

From the Peg Perego family to yours, Happy Mothers Day!
