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!)

Test Drive: 3 Things to Love about the Pliko P3

Finding the right stroller can be a daunting task. We understand. After all, we’re parents too.

We do our best with “Ciao, Mondo!” to tell you about all of our strollers and share with you how they might fit into your lifestyle. But don’t you sometimes just wish you could test them all out for yourself?

That gave us an idea … What if we tested them for you? Enter our new series, “Test Drive,” in which we’ll share our own experiences, as parents, with a variety of Peg Perego products. I wanted to start the series by sharing my experience with the stroller I use every day, the Pliko P3 Compact.

The Pliko P3 Compact is the first Peg Perego stroller I ever owned. And yes, it changed my life. Here’s why:

1. At first, it was the little things. In our official product description of the Pliko P3, we say that “it’s easy to fall in love with our compact, full-featured, easy-to-use stroller,” and I couldn’t agree more. With its handy, hinged child snack tray with cup holder, full hood with peek-a-boo window, and telescoping handles, for me, it was love at first sight. And, I fall in love a little bit deeper every time I go to close it. The one–hand compact umbrella fold is so quick, and so easy!

2. Then it was the rear footboard. When I had my second child, my oldest was three-and-a-half and she wasn’t too keen on giving up riding in the stroller. But when I showed her the rear footboard on the Pliko P3, she was thrilled to have her own “big-kid” spot to ride on. It’s especially great when she’s tired, or we’re in a crowded place and I want to keep her close.

3. And then the compliments started to flow. The Pliko P3 really does have it all, including style. I absolutely love its sleek design and color selections. I get compliments on it every time I take it out, and I’m always happy to tell people it’s a Peg Perego.

Stroller Options for Two

Have your stroller needs recently doubled? Did you know that Peg Perego has five (yes, five!) strollers that do double duty? Whether you’ve got twins, two young children, or siblings a few years apart in age, we’ve probably engineered a stroller solution for you and your family.

Our Duette SW is ideal for families with twins or two young children. The tandem-style double stroller has two individual seats that can face forward, backward, or each other. And the Duette SW will accept one—or two—Primo Viaggio SIP 30/30 car seats.

Super lightweight and compact, the Aria Twin 60/40 side-by-side double stroller is perfect for families with a younger and an older child, especially since the slightly larger “60” seat can accommodate one Primo Viaggio SIP 30/30 car seat. And you’ll love how the 60/40 seat design maneuvers through doorways, sales racks, and crowds.

If you’re expecting baby number two, or just thinking about having a second child, you may want to consider our Skate System. With it’s Jumper Seat accessory, you to turn our stylish three-piece stroller system into a head-turning double.

If your children are farther apart in age, and one is at that age where they’ve grown out of a traditional stroller but still might sometimes want an occasional ride, check out our rear footboard, which comes standard on two of our most popular strollers—the Pliko Switch Compact and the Pliko P3 Compact. It provides a safe (and big-kid approved “cool”) ride for a second passenger.

Want to check out some of these options in person? Visit one of our authorized retailers for great customer service and personal care. Find one near you by using our online Store Locator.

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!)

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 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!”

We also invite you to check out a review from Tanya at 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.”

What to Buy: Pliko Switch Compact vs. Pliko P3 Compact vs. Si

Peg Perego offers many compact-folding strollers within the Pliko line that are great for day to day use. But how do you know which one is right for your family?

The basic rule is that the Pliko Switch Compact is the ultimate option within the Pliko line, and its removable, reversible seat is the reason why. Within seconds the seat can switch from rear-facing (where baby is facing mom) to forward-facing (where baby is facing the world ahead!). This easy reversibility is essential as baby grows and gets more curious about the world around him. Plus, it allows the Primo Viaggio SIP infant car seat to attach directly to the stroller’s chassis!

Second to the Switch is the Pliko P3 Compact. This is often referred to as a go-to stroller, because it has so many great features and is easy to push and maneuver. Parents often reach for the P3 when they just need a reliable, dependable stroller that will adapt no matter what the day may bring.

Third in line is the Si. Great for extensive travel, the Si handles public and air transportation with ease but is also fully-featured enough to immediately transition to out-and-about activities.

Lastly, the Pliko Mini is the lightest, most basic option in the Pliko line. It’s ideal for errands, indoor settings, and even public transportation thanks to its ability to stand alone when folded! (Click here to see the comparison chart on the Pliko Mini).

For a quick product comparison, here’s a reference chart for the Switch, P3 and Si:
