Let the Memories Begin!

We’re going to Disney World! Yay! But wait, which stroller should we bring?

As an online associate for Peg Perego, I have been asked—and have answered—that question dozens of times for other families. And I definitely have my favorites … the Pliko Mini, the Pliko Four, the Si and the Aria Twin 60-40, they all top my list.

But what did I choose when it was time to take my own family to Disney World?

Drumroll, please … the Pliko Four!

I chose the Pliko Four for a million different reasons, but mostly because it has all the features needed to keep my littlest one, 2-year-old Jack, happy all day. Plus, it has a built-in rear footboard that my 5-year-old daughter, Maddie, could use during our long days at the parks.

Before we left on our trip, I had lots of friends ask if we would be taking a stroller or not. Yes, Jack is 2, and he’s quite capable of walking, but honestly, I couldn’t imagine Disney without our stroller. The average person walks between 6 to 12 miles a day at Disney World. That’s a lot of walking for anyone, let alone a small child. Plus, let’s face it, little kids need breaks. They need to rest and nap and eat.

With the Pliko Four’s adjustable seat and large canopy that unzips to become a full sun canopy (a must for the hot Florida sun), the stroller was the perfect place for a snooze on the go. We also found that the available Snack Tray is a must for Disney. Not only is it great for quick snacks on the go, but a lot of the quick-service dining places don’t have high chairs, and we found that the Pliko Four plus Snack Tray worked just as well.

As for our 5-year-old, she enjoyed the Pliko Four’s rear footboard just as much as I had anticipated. Every day, usually in the mid-afternoon when temperatures peaked and her energy dropped, she’d happily hop a ride on the stroller’s built in footboard. This was not only a plus for her, but for us as well. We saw lots of tired (and hot) parents carrying big kids around, and we were glad to not be among them.

As for my husband and me, we loved the Pliko Four’s adjustable handles that gave us both the perfect fit (he’s 6’2”; I’m 5’3”), the Adult Cup Holder and the convenient shopping basket. We were thankful for the Pliko Four’s compact, self-standing fold. Even though we stayed on property, we had to use lots and lots of different forms of transportation during our trip—ferry boats, buses, the storied Monorail. While sometimes we were able to roll our Pliko Four right on, other times we were asked to fold it. We had a number of other parents, and park employees, comment on how quickly ours folded, and its standalone fold.

So does the Pliko Four still top my list? Of course! Not only has it earned its spot there, but after a trip with my family to the most magical place on earth, it’s earned a little spot in my heart as well.

1 + 1 = 4 Stroller Options for Siblings

 Are you expecting for the second time? Congratulations! As your family grows, your stroller needs may change, but don’t worry…we’ve got you covered. Check out our top picks for multiples, siblings and growing families:

1. Aria Twin 60/40

This side-by-side double stroller is our No. 1 pick for young siblings. Super lightweight and compact, we especially designed the Aria Twin 60/40 to fit through standard doorways. How were we able to do it? The Aria Twin 60/40 was designed with two different seat sizes (one that will accept a car seat), which is just perfect for siblings.

2. Duette SW

Expecting twins? For twins, or for families with two young children, we love the Duette SW. 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—car seats. (If you have triplets or three young children, we suggest the similar Triplette SW.)

3. Skate System + Jumper Seat

It’s easy to stay stylish, even with two children in tow. If you’re expecting again, or think there might be a second baby in your family’s future, you may want to consider our Skate System. With its Jumper Seat accessory, it’s easy to turn our fashionable stroller system into a head-turning double.

4. Pliko Four + Rear Footboard or Switch Four + Rear Footboard

Our two most popular strollers, the Pliko Four and the Switch Four, were built for growing families. Both come standard with our rear footboard. It provides a safe (and big-kid-approved) ride for an older, second passenger. We love it for siblings that are a few years apart.

What do you think about these options? Please share thoughts and questions below. We’d love to hear from you!

2012 Peg Perego Pliko Four

 One of our most beloved strollers, the Pliko, is getting a sleek and stylish makeover for 2012. New for next year, the Pliko Four will have four larger wheels, updating the old eight-wheel design. The new wheels not only look sleeker, but with 12 ball bearings and a suspension system, they make the new Pliko Four 30 percent easier to push. Also new for the 2012 design is the sleek new bumper bar. It looks great, plus it can be swapped out for a child’s snack tray (sold separately).

The Pliko has long been a favorite stroller, and for good reason. It has all of the best features of a full-sized stroller (multi-position recline, large canopy, snack tray option) with the convenience of a one–hand compact fold that allows for quick closing and carrying. Plus, you can make the Pliko Four the ultimate travel system stroller with a matching Primo Viaggio SIP 30/30 infant car seat.

Features of the updated Pliko Four include:

  • One-hand quick, easy, and compact fold.
  • Adjustable leg and back rest
  • Large, handy storage basket for all the necessities
  • Telescoping handles for taller adults
  • Side adult cup holder
  • Large hood with peek-a-boo window that unzips to become a sun canopy
  • Loop on canopy to dangle baby’s favorite light toy
  • Built-in rear footboard that provides a safe ride for a second passenger

The Pliko Four is a perfect fit for families who are on the go and need a reliable and durable stroller that fits into a compact space. Share your thoughts and questions about the new Pliko Four below. We’d love to hear what you think!
