Peg Perego 2012 Pliko Mini

Ideal for travel or as an everyday stroller, the Pliko Mini is the perfect combination of practicality and style.

Introduced just this year (in 2011), this already-popular, full-featured umbrella stroller is lightweight, folds compactly, and maneuvers with ease. And for 2012, this new favorite will keep all of its great features and continue to come in four vibrant colors—Aloe, Fire, Iron, and Neon—that are sure to make the Pliko Mini a continued top pick for the new year.

All four color collections look great on the stylish Mini. Aloe, a bright green, and Fire, a true red, make a stylish statement, while Iron, a striking charcoal, is both classic and timely. Neon, a black/neon multi stripes combination, is another that is sure to turn heads.

But the Mini isn’t all about looks…A streamlined version of its older brother, the beloved classic Pliko P3, the Pliko Mini weighs in at just 13 pounds but still has all the features you’ve come to expect from Peg Perego:

  • Easy, one-hand fold that stands alone
  • Three-position backrest (reclines more than 150 degrees!)
  • Two-position leg rest
  • Telescoping adjustable handles
  • Generous canopy with window
  • Side carrying handle
  • Lockable front swivel wheels
  • Adult cup holder

The Pliko Mini is a great choice for families on the go. At just 19 1/4″ wide, 40 1/6″ high, and 33 1/3″ deep, there’s not a single train platform or jetway where the Pliko Mini will fail to move with agility. And the Mini is a great everyday stroller too. With its astonishingly compact folded dimensions—just 37 1/2″ high by 13 1/2″ wide by 13″deep, it will easily fit into even the most crowded of trunks, making it the must-have take along for running quick trips and errands.

Part of our John Deere collection (we have got a John Deere for nearly every age), these two learn-and-play tractors were specifically designed with preschoolers in mind.

For Little Kids…

One of our most popular toys, the John Deere Gator HPX is sure to be a gift to go down in history! Kids just love the working dump bed and opening tailgate. With two adjustable seats and second-gear lockout that prevents beginners from going too fast, the Gator, designed for kids 3 to 8, is something your little ones will enjoy for years to come!

The Polaris Outlaw is so cool all of your child’s friends will want one too! All-terrain knobby wheels provide traction on grass, dirt, gravel, or pavement.

Another cool pick for kids ages 3 to 7 is the Ducati Monster motorcycle. With bold colors and electrifying graphics, the Ducati Monster is set to take on grass, dirt, or hard-surfaced terrain. Your little rider will love the “twist grip” accelerator, foot-operated brake pedal, electronic engine sounds, and large front headlight.


For Big Kids…

Older kids will love exploring in their own Polaris Sportsman 850! This extreme performance ATV delivers tons of fun for any 5- to 10-year-old. And there’s even a flip-up backrest for a second passenger!

Looking for something they can share? Adventure is always ahead with the Polaris Ranger RZR! There’s just nothing like it! This 24-volt SuperPower with side-by-side seating allows 5- to 10-year-old to drive over most terrain at speeds up to 7 mph!

Traveling with Peg Perego

Are your holiday travel plans taking you a bit farther than “over the river and through the woods” this year? We’ve got many great stroller options sure to make the busiest travel weekend of the year easier on you, and your lil’ pilgrim!

Our first pick for holiday travel via air is the lightweight, easy-folding Si. With a compact design (perfect for tight spaces), it’s easy to take the Si with you from check-in through security and on to the gate. And at just 13 pounds, would you believe it’s car seat-compatible?

If you like to travel light, and in style, consider our Pliko Mini. At only 13 pounds, the fashionable Pliko Mini—a new addition to the Peg Perego lineup for 2011—makes travel a breeze! It has an easy, compact fold and a reclining seat (ideal for sleepy toddlers).

Traveling by twos? Try the Pliko P3 Compact. The P3’s built-in rear footboard provides a safe ride for a second child. Not only is this feature great for jet-lagged older siblings, but it can be a real life-saver if you find yourself running to your gate through a busy terminal. Plus, the Pliko P3 Compact has all the best features of a full-sized stroller (mufti-position recline, travel system compatibility, snack tray), but with the one-hand, compact you’ll need for quick maneuvering at the airport.

Checking your stroller? Consider our Travel Bag! This sturdy carrying sack, designed to hold our Si, Pliko Mini, and P3, is the perfect way to protect your stroller until it reaches your final destination.

Have questions? Please ask! We’d love to help your family find the perfect stroller, wherever you’re heading! 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!)
