Seeing is Believing: Answering Your FAQs with Videos

Since launching our Peg Perego USA Channel on YouTube in April, we’ve had more than 92,700 upload views. That surprised even us, but we’re so glad that you’re finding and using the channel.

We’ve found it pretty useful too. In fact, we can now answer a lot of the questions we get from all of you with videos. Sometimes a picture, or in this case a video, really is worth a thousand words. So what videos are we sharing the most? Check out some of the FAQs we think can best be answered with a video.

1. I’m considering the Pliko Switch Compact … What is this “baby safety enclosure” system I keep reading about?



2. I love that the Tatamia highchair doubles as a baby swing. How does that work?



3. How hard is it to attach the Jumper Seat to the Skate?



4. I’m looking at the Primo Viaggio SIP 30/30 infant car seat. I see that it has the LATCH system … How does it work?



5. A lot of your strollers say they have “an easy one-hand” fold … How easy is it?



We invite you to explore the Peg Perego USA Channel on YouTube for yourself. There you’ll find full-length videos on some of our most popular products and feature-specific clips. And as always, if you have a question, please ask! Leave us a comment or email us at onlineassociate@pegperego.com.

Parli Italiano? (Do You Speak Italian?)

Here at Peg Perego, we are proud of our Italian heritage and long tradition of designing and manufacturing Italian-made baby and children’s products that meet the needs of families worldwide.

A family-owned company since our founding in 1949, Peg Perego continues to design and manufacture all of our products in Italy. A nod to our Made in Italy tradition, and to the style and quality standards that we hold so dear, is our many Italian product names. These names mean something to us, and we thought you might appreciate the meanings as well.

Uno. This name literally means “one,” which is perfect for this all-in-one carriage that quickly converts to a stroller.

Si. You probably guessed this one. “Si” translates to “yes.” And who wouldn’t want to say “yes” to a compact, quick-folding stroller that is so easy to take wherever baby goes?

Vela Easy Drive. This one is a little tougher to guess, right? “Vela” translates to “sail,” which really is a fitting name for our convenient and lightweight stroller. With the Vela, you can “sail” right through the day.

Primo Viaggio SIP 30/30. This one has a sweet translation. Directly translated, it means “first travel,” which is perfect since our Primo Viaggio SIP 30/30 is the ideal solution for transporting infants 5 to 30 pounds or 30 inches.

Prima Pappa Best and Prima Pappa Diner. “Pappa” is a tricky one. You might have thought “pappa” means papa, or dad, or something along those line. But “pappa” actually translates to “baby food,” which is exactly what your baby will enjoy in our stylish, functional high chairs.

Sdraietta Melodia. “Sdraietta” is probably the toughest one to guess (and pronounce), right? In English, “sdraietta” translates to “bouncer.” And “melodia” translates to “musical.” So together, “sdraietta melodia” translates to “musical bouncer.”

Borsa Mamma. Another easy one. This one translates to “mom bag.” But isn’t Borsa Mamma so much more glamorous, and given the Borsa’s sleek style, more fitting?

Tatamia. This is one of our favorite names. It is so fun to say, and when you know the meaning, it makes you love the Tatamia even more. “Tata mia” roughly translates to “my nanny.” We love that! Especially since with its three functions—baby recliner, swing and highchair—the Tatamia can be used to care for your little one from the time they are a newborn through their toddler years.

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 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!”
