A Cool Italian Convertible for Your Child

Where do we start with our new Primo Viaggio SIP Convertible 5-70 car seat? The new addition to our Viaggio car seat family follows your child from infancy through toddlerhood, providing comfort, style and safety for them from 5 to 70 pounds.

The Primo Viaggio SIP Convertible 5-70 converts from rear facing (for children 5 to 45 lbs.) to  forward facing (for children 22 to 70 pounds, or up to 49 inches). Its Side Impact Protection head panel protects child’s head, neck and spine and easily adjusts to 10 different positions, even with baby in the seat, ensuring a perfect – and safe – fit. The Primo Viaggio SIP Convertible 5-70 also features energy-absorbing foam, Expanded Poly Styrene, in the shell and head panel, and a Shock Absorbing Foam Element (SAFE) below the shell that crumples upon impact.

Plus, baby will look great (and be comfortable) with the seat’s innovative Fresco Jersey performance fabric (it’s breathable, absorbs moisture and is easy to clean), which is available in six sophisticated color ways.

Of course, we are excited about this new addition to Viaggio car seat family, but what do some of the leading baby bloggers have to say about the Primo Viaggio SIP Convertible 5-70?


The BabyGuy Gear Guide

“That’s Amore …” is how the BabyGuy entitled his blog about the Primo Viaggio SIP Convertible 5-70. That’s good news for us … and for you! Here’s what Jamie Grayson had to say:

“It’s an incredibly attractive seat … a sexy and sleek design for parents who don’t want to muck-up their car. The upholstery is gorgeous and the Jersey Fresco fabric is so soft I’m jealous. Got a carsick kiddo? Don’t worry—the fabric can be removed for hand-washing … The LATCH install is very easy, and the lock-offs for seatbelt installation are actually quite easy to use compared to others on the market.

Moooooo-ve over, because there’s a new car seat in town. And it’s a damn good one. Great job, Italians. Great job.”


Baby Gizmo

Baby Gizmo took an “up close and personal” look at the Primo Viaggio SIP Convertible 5-70. Blog founder Hollie Schultz said you need to “take notice”!

“One of our favorite features of the Primo Viaggio Convertible 5-70 seat is the adjustable Side Impact Protection (SIP) that is super easy to adjust to 10 different positions, even with baby in the seat. This adjustment not only moves the headpiece but the harness straps as well. No more uninstalling the car seat and re-threading harnesses with this one! Booyah!”


Mommy Loves Coffee

Christina Holt of Mommy Loves Coffee points out that Peg Perego is “widely known for their exceptional details to safety and style.” Here’s what she said about one of the comfort features of Primo Viaggio Convertible 5-70:

“It is a Fresco Jersey performance fabric. It’s very breathable. It absorbs a lot of moisture and will keep your baby cool and comfortable, even in the black. It’s never been hot to the touch. My child has never been uncomfortable while sitting in it, and he’s a hotbox!”

Important Safety Message Regarding Older Model Venezia and Pliko P3 Strollers

At Peg Perego, your child’s safety is our top priority. That’s why today we want to share with you some important information about a voluntary recall involving some of our older model Venezia and Pliko P3 strollers.

This voluntary recall only involves Venezia and Pliko P3 models that were manufactured from January 2004 through September 2007. Only these models manufactured and sold in the United States are subject to the recall.

With the affected models there is the potential risk of entrapment and strangulation to small children, especially to infants younger than 12 months of age who are not properly secured in the stroller’s harness and left unattended. All Peg Perego strollers, even those mentioned in this safety notice, are equipped with a safety harness that should be properly used at all times to avoid risk of entrapment and strangulation.

This voluntary recall is in response to two separate incidents in which a child became trapped between the stroller seat and stroller tray, resulting in one death in 2004. Peg Perego was not notified at the time of this incident, but only many years later.

The stroller models that have been voluntarily recalled were manufactured prior to the existence of a January 2008 voluntary industry standard that addresses the height of the opening between the stroller’s tray and seat bottom. This voluntary standard requires larger stroller openings that prevent infant entrapment and strangulation hazards. All Peg Perego strollers manufactured after 2007 meet these new requirements.

Once again, this recall involves only late model Venezia and Pliko P3 strollers that were manufactured from January 2004 through September 2007.

Consumers can check the child tray on their Pliko P3 or Venezia. Only strollers that have a child tray with one cup holder are part of this recall. Strollers with a bumper bar or a tray with two cup holders are not included in this recall. Also, the stroller’s manufacture date can be found on a white label on the back of the Pliko P3 stroller seat and on the Venezia stroller footboard.

To find out if your model is affected, please click here.

If you own a stroller that is affected by this voluntary recall, there is no need to return your product. Peg Perego will provide a repair kit containing an additional passive containment bib free of charge upon request.

To order a repair kit, click here. You can also call 1.888.734.6020 or send an email to recallvp2012@pegperego.com.

As a final note, please remember when using a stroller, always properly secure children by using the safety harness and never leave them unattended.

A Case Study in Outdoor Fun

Everybody loves a new toy, and we’re pretty excited about our newest one—the Peg Perego Case IH Magnum tractor. In stores later this month, the Case IH Magnum takes outdoor play excitement to the next level.

Kids 3 to 7 years old will love tooling around in this realistic ride-on tractor, which offers two speeds—2¼ or 4½ mph, plus reverse. What’s more, kids can load up the extra-large detachable trailer with all of their backyard treasures.

Four-wheel-drive farm tractor wheels provide traction on grass, dirt, gravel and pavement. And the multi-position SmartPedal accelerator provides for a smooth ride and for a longer riding time. Plus, there’s even a second-gear lockout for beginners and automatic brakes for added safety.

The made-in-the-USA Case IH Magnum features an adjustable seat and fold-up armrests. It comes with its own 12–volt rechargeable, high-capacity battery and charger, as well as an extended two-year warranty (second-year extension requires customer participation; see product insert for details).

The Case IH Magnum is set to arrive in stores later this month (in plenty of time for harvest season!). Use our online Store Locator to find a Peg Perego toy retailer near you.

Doesn’t Your Child Deserve the Best?

There is one simple way to liven up dinnertime with your little bambino or bambina (and, thankfully, no, it has nothing to do with strained peas). You can add style, comfort and safety if you choose to put your baby in the Prima Pappa Best high chair from Peg Perego.

Functional, durable and upscale, the Prima Pappa Best has long been one of the most popular pieces of baby gear in our collection. It features a finely tailored, buttery-soft (and stain-resistant!) “Prima Classe” upholstered seat, which is available in three gorgeous colors—Paloma, Bordeaux and Cacao.

The “tilt-n-space” reclining seat and three-position adjustable footrest allow this high chair to grow with your child through the years. The dishwasher-safe second tray removes easily and stores on the chair’s back legs. And going from eating to playing is a cinch with the storage net on the back of the seat that’s perfect for baby’s favorite toys.

Multiple height adjustments make for a wonderful asset for bonding with your little one right at your level. The Prima Pappa Best comes fully assembled, and the non-scratching rubber wheels with rear brakes will help save your floors and provide an added level of safety for your baby.

See the Prima Pappa Best in action here:

At Peg Perego we strive to fulfill your needs, and with the Prima Pappa Best, we think we have done just that for you and your baby. After all, doesn’t your little one deserve the best … the Prima Pappa Best?
