New Videos: Modular Systems

They say less is more. Still, there are times, particularly when buying for baby, that more is more! That’s especially the case when it comes to Peg Perego’s amazing Modular Systems.

Our two systems—the Skate System and the Pliko Switch Compact Modular System—give you more by including everything you’ll need for baby in one single purchase.

Modular Systems are a great choice, especially if you are a new parent, or you just want everything new (and matching) for baby. Not only are Modular Systems complete, but ours also grow right along with your baby. Both the Skate and the Switch systems give you the versatility to transport baby in a bassinet, car seat, or stroller seat.

If you’re looking for style, you’ll want to consider our Skate System. Ever so fashionable, the luxurious three-piece system easily converts from an ultra-comfortable carriage to a reversible, fully functional stroller. And the wheels, which were designed with ball bearings and shock-absorbing springs, make it extremely smooth to push. When watching the video, be sure to notice:

  • The included Skate bassinet.
  • The reversible seat.
  • All of the available accessories, including the Jumper Seat, which quickly turns the Skate into a head-turning stroller for two.

We also invite you to consider making the switch to our Pliko Switch Compact Modular System. The centerpiece of this system is our beloved Pliko Switch Compact stroller. The all-inclusive system also comes with our award-winning Primo Viaggio SIP 30/30 infant seat, our urban-chic Navetta XL bassinet and stand, and our Borsa diaper bag. When watching the video, be sure to notice:

What to Buy: The Pliko Switch Compact vs. The Uno

Do you like to change things up from time to time? Then you should definitely consider a convertible stroller. These innovative strollers allow baby to go from facing you, to the world ahead, with just a few quick and easy moves.

But with more than one great Peg Perego convertible option, how do you choose?

First, you’ll want to consider the Pliko Swith Compact. With the Switch, within seconds you can switch the removable seat from rear-facing to forward-facing. Plus, the Pliko Switch Compact was redesigned this year for a 2-inch shorter fold and to be 2 pounds lighter.

Then, there’s our innovative Uno. The feature that sets the Uno apart from others is its reversible handlebar, which allows you to effortlessly transition baby from front- to rear-facing (even while she’s sleeping!) The Uno also has large rear wheels that give it a smooth, luxurious ride and zero-radius turning when in rear-facing mode.

Pliko Switch Compact Uno
Description The ultimate in convenience, this modular stroller has a removable seat that easily switches from forward- or rear-facing. With its reversible handlebar, this all-in-one stroller quickly converts from forward- to rear-facing.

Travel System Compatible Yes. Car seat attaches directly to chassis. Yes. Car seat fastens to stroller seat.

Like the idea of a convertible, but you really want a travel system?

You can pair the Uno with a matching Primo Viaggio SIP 30/30 car seat (sold separately). Or, you can get the Switch as part of our Pliko Switch Compact Modular System, which also includes the Primo Viaggio SIP 30/30 infant car seat, the Navetta XL bassinet (which attaches right to the Switch stroller chassis) and bassinet stand (for nursery use), and our sleek Borsa Mamma diaper bag.

And don’t forget about our Skate System. The ever so stylish three-piece system can also easily transform from an ultra comfortable pram to a reversible, fully functional stroller.

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.

In the News: “Fit Pregnancy” Features Peg Perego

We are happy to report that the editors of Fit Pregnancy have selected the Peg Perego Pliko Switch Compact Modular System to be featured in the Fit Pregnancy 2011 Buyer’s Guide!

The magazine’s guide, which features just a handful of strollers with “sleek designs and lots of extras” to “keep you rolling” touts the Peg Perego Pliko Switch Compact Modular System for all it includes— an infant car seat for road travel (the Primo Viaggio SIP 30-30), a functional diaper bag (the Borsa Mamma), a comfortable bassinet (the Navetta XL) and bassinet stand for nursery and infant–use, and the much–loved Pliko Switch Compact stroller that accepts both the car seat, bassinet, and reversible seat onto its chassis. “Plus, it folds with the ease of an umbrella stroller,” the editors note.

We couldn’t agree more! The Peg Perego Pliko Switch Compact Modular System is the ultimate in convenience.  Make the switch! Check out our list of select retailers to find out how you can get your hands on the in-demand system!

While you’re updating your must-have list, don’t forget to add the Peg Perego Tatamia, which Fit Pregnancy included on its list of Registry Essentials. The multipurpose baby seat is so much more than a high chair! With a space-saving design, it transforms from a baby recliner to a baby swing to a high chair, meeting every phase of your child’s life, from newborn to toddler!

Big City Strollers!

Navigating San Francisco, Chicago, New York or any big city can be difficult when you have to do it with a stroller. So here are our picks for the best Peg Perego strollers for big city life!

1.      Pliko Switch Modular System – With a separate, nursery-ready bassinet component, this compact-folding stroller is number one when it comes to being city-savvy.

Use it as a carriage to walk the city streets when baby is a newborn. The included Bassinet Stand saves space in the nursery and the convenient cover sees to it that baby stays warm.

If you need to catch a cab with your newborn, it’s not a problem! Attach the included Primo Viaggio SIP infant seat to the chassis and you have a great travel system. Once you hail a cab, the infant seat can be secured in the backseat by using a seat belt, while the Switch’s chassis easily folds and stores in the trunk.

Once baby’s a bit older, you’ll want to transition to the traditional stroller seat. Luxurious fabric and multiple recline and footrest options ensure baby stays comfortable when you’re on lengthy outings. Plus, the stroller is lightweight and compact enough to make bus or subway travel do-able!

2.      Pliko Mini – So light and easy to fold, the Mini is perfect for public transportation! It’s easy to get on and off buses and trains, plus it folds so compactly, making it more than taxi-ready.

If you’re a city parent who’s looking for the best lightweight stroller that will follow you from the apartment to the cab to the store, look no further than the Pliko Mini!

Those are our big city picks! What do you use when navigating an urban metropolis?
