Happy Halloween!

 

Awwww…there’s nothing cuter than a Peg Perego baby in costume. Thanks so much to all of you who shared your Halloween photos with us. As our “treat” to you, we’ve put together a few last-minute “tricks” to make this Halloween just perfect for your lil’ pumpkin.

Prep your little one for all the scary surprises. “Thanks to their growing imaginations, toddlers and preschoolers have a hard time separating fact from fantasy, and the pretend world of princesses and superheroes (and skeletons and witches) can seem very real to them,” Heidi Murkoff, the author of What to Expect When You’re Expecting, explains on whattoexpect.com. So before you head out, explain just what to expect, from scary decorations to people that pop out to say “boo” to kids (and adults) in spooky costumes.

Dress for safety. Choose a flame-resistant costume, and for tiny treaters, inspect costumes and accessories carefully for choking or strangulation hazards (buttons, rhinestones, strings, etc.). Avoid itchy fabrics and appliques that may irritate baby’s sensitive skin. “After dark, both you and your child should wear bright-colored costumes or add reflective tape to your outfits,” says Atlanta pediatrician (and mom of two) Julie Segal, M.D. on Parenting.com. “Finally, skip the face masks; most babies will become annoyed with them. A little nontoxic face paint or a hat can be just as cute.”

Check those treats. We know it’s hard, but it really is best to have your toddler wait until they get home to dive into their stash of sweets. You need to check the loot first for potential choking hazards. Gum, peanuts, and hard candies top the list, but anything gooey or sticky, like caramel, candy corn, taffy, or marshmallows, poses a threat. And remember, nonedible treats like little balls, plastic rings, and marbles can be choking hazards too. And although tampering is rare, do check all candy for that too.

When the party’s over, hang on to that costume! Organizations like Green Halloween sponsor National Costume Swap Days in local communities across the country each year. Kids get new-to-them costumes, and parents save money and the planet by recycling princess dresses, witches hats, and superhero capes from years past.

From our family to yours, have a happy—and safe—Halloween! And remember, we love seeing pictures of our little Peg Perego fans (especially in costumes!). Be sure to share yours on the Peg Perego USA Facebook wall or email them to onlineassociate@pegperego.com.

2012 Peg Perego Pliko Four

 One of our most beloved strollers, the Pliko, is getting a sleek and stylish makeover for 2012. New for next year, the Pliko Four will have four larger wheels, updating the old eight-wheel design. The new wheels not only look sleeker, but with 12 ball bearings and a suspension system, they make the new Pliko Four 30 percent easier to push. Also new for the 2012 design is the sleek new bumper bar. It looks great, plus it can be swapped out for a child’s snack tray (sold separately).

The Pliko has long been a favorite stroller, and for good reason. It has all of the best features of a full-sized stroller (multi-position recline, large canopy, snack tray option) with the convenience of a one–hand compact fold that allows for quick closing and carrying. Plus, you can make the Pliko Four the ultimate travel system stroller with a matching Primo Viaggio SIP 30/30 infant car seat.

Features of the updated Pliko Four include:

  • One-hand quick, easy, and compact fold.
  • Adjustable leg and back rest
  • Large, handy storage basket for all the necessities
  • Telescoping handles for taller adults
  • Side adult cup holder
  • Large hood with peek-a-boo window that unzips to become a sun canopy
  • Loop on canopy to dangle baby’s favorite light toy
  • Built-in rear footboard that provides a safe ride for a second passenger

The Pliko Four is a perfect fit for families who are on the go and need a reliable and durable stroller that fits into a compact space. Share your thoughts and questions about the new Pliko Four below. We’d love to hear what you think!
