Book It!

It’s that time of year again — back to school. And this year, we have a different kind of book for you to add to your supply list: our super-smart Book stroller.

One of our newest strollers, this truly could be the one and only stroller you’ll ever need. Fully equipped with all the features, the Book can be used from birth along with the Primo Viaggio SIP 30/30 infant car seat. And with multiple recline positions, the Book grows with your child, making it the perfect choice for infants, as well as toddlers.

Plus, the Book is truly a joy to use. Large wheels with 12 ball bearings, and an adjustable handlebar, make it almost effortless to push. But our favorite standout feature just may be the Book’s innovative book-like fold. It’s easy to do, with just one hand, plus the inward fold means the Book’s upholstery always stays clean and protected.

The Book is available now, in all of our newest fabrics and colors. To find a retailer near you, use our online Store Locator.

Summer Fun on the Run

Perfect for every day and every destination, the Pliko Mini is one of our favorite summertime must-haves. The Pliko Mini is our lightest stroller, yet it still has all of those thoughtful features that on-the-go families love, making it ideal for summertime fun on the run.

What features are our favorites? Well, the full canopy, helpful storage basket and adult cup holder (a must for hot summer days!) top the list. Plus, the Pliko Mini has an adjustable backrest (perfect for naps on the go) and adjustable handles for Mom and Dad. We also love that the Pliko Mini with its adjustable footrest — grows with your child

And the Pliko Mini packs light — literally! At just 13 pounds, it’s super-lightweight, and at just 19 ¼” wide, it’s easy to maneuver through tight spaces, no matter where your summer adventure takes you. Plus, the Pliko Mini folds with one hand and stands alone when folded, which is perfect for when you need to “park” it at the theme park or airport.

My Book Plus

We’ve always loved a good story, and in the short time it’s been available in the U.S., we’re already hearing such great stories about the all-new Book Plus.

We’ve heard from first-time moms and dads who love the travel-system option, experienced parents who just couldn’t live without the reversible seat, and even from a few happy toddlers who judging from their smiles on our Facebook page, seem to give the Book Plus their “thumbs ups” as well.

So how can one stroller please so many? We’d like to think it’s because we took such care in making sure the Book Plus was truly customizable. Discover all the possibilities and start your Book Plus story today …

 +Book Plus Seat: The Book Plus comes standard with an easy-to-use, reversible seat that allows baby to face you or the world ahead. This plush seat reclines to several positions, including a newborn-ready flat recline. Paired with the included foot muff, the stroller doubles as a carriage

+ Primo Viaggio SIP 30/30 Car Seat: Looking for a true travel system? We’ve got you covered with the Book Plus. The innovative Book Plus pairs perfectly with our celebrated Primo Viaggio SIP 30/30 car seat. It attaches securely to the stroller’s chassis, making the Book Plus with the Primo Viaggio SIP 30/30 the ideal travel solution for infants 5 to 30 pounds.

+Navetta XL Bassinet: Another great addition for your little addition is the Navetta XL bassinet. Like the car seat, this luxurious newborn-ready bassinet attaches right to the Book Plus chassis, giving baby a comfy, cozy spot to catch some zzz’s.

+Practico Seat: Sometimes, less is more, which is why we think you’ll love the Practico Seat, especially as baby grows. This compact seat transforms the Book Plus into a lightweight stroller, and it’s perfect for travel (it comes with its very own travel bag!).

The Book Plus is available now! To find a retailer near you, use our online Store Locator. And if you’re already a proud owner of the all-new Book Plus, please, share your story below. We’d love to hear from you!

Strollers in the City

We just returned from another amazing trip to New York City. We were there for Big City Moms’ Biggest Baby Shower Ever – New York, and as always, we had a great time. We just love meeting new moms and recommending the perfect stroller for their family, lifestyle and city.

 So, which strollers did we find ourselves recommending the most while in the big Apple? We’re so glad you asked …

Ever since it was featured in 2007’s The Nanny Diaries, our Pliko — now sold as the Pliko Four and as the reversible Switch Four — the Pliko has been a city favorite, and for good reason. Our Pliko models combine all the best features of a full-sized stroller (multiposition recline, large canopy, Easy Drive system) with the convenience of a lightweight design that offers quick, easy and compact folding.

In addition to the Pliko, we also recommended our two newest strollers — the Book and Book Plus — to city moms a lot. Named for their compact, book-like fold, the fully loaded Book and Book Plus are perfect picks for on-the-go families, offering all the features they need in a super-stylish design.

Another Peg Perego favorite for urban moms is our beloved Primo Viaggio SIP 30-30 infant car seat. Travel-system compatible with all of our full-sized strollers, the Primo Viaggio SIP 30-30 can also be used in a vehicle with or without the LATCH system base — perfect for quick cab rides.

Do you live in a big city? Which Peg Perego stroller would you recommend?

Basics for Baby

Babies may be teeny tiny, but they sure do need a lot of stuff! Of all the things a newborn needs, three pieces of gear top our list: a car seat, stroller and high chair. So what should you look for when deciding which pieces to add to your registry? We’re so glad you asked …

1. Car Seat
When selecting a car seat, the most important consideration has to be safety. Our celebrated Primo Viaggio SIP 30/30 infant car seat exceeds the most stringent safety tests in the world. Designed for infants from 5 to 30 pounds (or up to 30 inches), the Primo Viaggio SIP 30/30 features a Side Impact Protection (SIP) head panel that protects a child’s head, neck and spine. This SIP protection easily adjusts to 10 different positions, ensuring a perfect — and safe — fit. The Primo Viaggio SIP 30/30 also has energy-absorbing foam in the shell and head panel that absorbs crash forces, resulting in less force transferred directly to child and minimizing injuries in the event of a crash. Plus, a Shock Absorbing Foam Element device located below the shell crumples upon impact, reducing stress on child’s neck and shoulders in the event of a crash. There’s also a five-point safety harness and a special removable cushion just for newborns.

2. Stroller
If you’re searching for a stroller with a newborn in mind, there are some important considerations. First, you’ll need a stroller that offers either a full recline and/or the option of attaching a car seat or bassinet. Most of our strollers are travel-system compatible with our own Primo Viaggio SIP 30/30 infant car seat. And our newest stroller, the Book Plus, accommodates both our infant car seat and our newborn-ready bassinet.

3. High Chair
Since it will be months before your new baby will try solid foods, you may think it’s too early to think about a high chair, but a high chair can be a great place for baby at family mealtimes. All of our high chairs have a tilt-in-space reclining seat that’s perfect for young babies, even newborns. Our multifunction Tatamia is especially great for newborns because it transforms from a baby recliner to a high chair to a baby swing.

Mom Knows Best

In honor of Mother’s Day, we thought we’d talk about the Peg Perego stroller that moms everywhere can’t seem to get enough of — the all-new Book! (Plus, we’re giving one away to one very lucky mom, so keep reading … )

Super stylish and modern in design, the Book is certainly quickly becoming a mommy must-have. Why? We asked real moms, and they told us it’s the Book’s many innovative features that make it top their list of baby-gear favorites.

Moms love the Book’s unique fold. Not only is the fold quick and easy, but the Book closes inward (just like a book!), which keeps the upholstery clean and tidy. The Book also stands alone when folded, and once folded, it’s super compact, fitting into even the tightest of spaces.

New moms also tell us they love that the Book is travel-system compatible. Our Primo Viaggio SIP 30-30 car seat attaches directly to the stroller’s retractable anchors, making transitioning from car to stroller and back to car effortless.

Finally, easy-drive wheels with ball bearings and a suspension system that allows for 360-degree agility make the Book easy and effortless to push. The one-piece handlebar adjusts, while an easy-loading storage basket carries all of mom’s (and baby’s) necessities, making the Book the perfect choice for almost any outing.

So, if you’re looking for a mom-approved stroller, definitely consider the Book. We think it would make a great Mother’s Day gift … which brings us to our GIVEAWAY!

In honor of mom’s everywhere, we’re gifting one (very lucky!) mom a brand-new Book stroller!

For your chance to win, comment below and tell us, what’s the best advice you ever received about being a mom? “Sleep when baby sleeps.”  “Take time for yourself.”  “Enjoy every moment; it goes by so fast.” Whatever it is, we want to hear it!

We will randomly select one winner. For your chance to win, comment by 3 p.m. EST, Thursday, May 9. (One comment per family please. Sorry, contest is open to U.S. residents only.)

Good luck!

San Francisco Loves …

After just a few days in San Francisco, we’re already enamored with the Bay Area and all it has to offer kids and families. While visiting the city for Big City Moms Biggest Baby Shower Ever San Francisco, we were particularly impressed with all the exploration that can be done just by walking through the city’s many unique neighborhoods. It’s no wonder that the Journal of American Podiatric Medical Association voted San Francisco one of America’s Greatest Walking Cities.

All this got us thinking: Just what stroller would we recommend to San Francisco’s moms and mommies-to-be? We decided to let them decide …

Hands down, the urban moms we talked to loved, loved, loved our all-new Book Plus.

While the new stroller’s incredible style may have caught their eye first, it was the practicality and versatility that kept their attention. The moms loved that the Book Plus is reversible, allowing baby to face them or the world ahead. And all the extra add-ons, all designed to work perfectly with the Book Plus (like the newborn-perfect Primo Viaggio SIP 30/30 infant car seat, the Navetta XL bassinet and the toddler-ready Pratico Seat), made the Book Plus go to the top of their wish lists. Available accessories like the Snack Tray, Rain Cover and Baby Cushion were just icing on the cake!

Other city mom favorites included our space-saving Rialto booster chair and our always-popular Primo Viaggio SIP 30-30 infant car seat and Primo Viaggio SIP 5-70 Convertible.

Are you a city mom? What are your favorite Peg Perego products? Let us know by commenting below. We’d love to hear from you!

April Showers

April showers bring … baby showers! Shower season is upon us. And whether you’re throwing a party for a friend or helping plan your own, we have a creative baby shower idea for you: a book-themed baby shower!

We got the idea from one of our new favorite bloggers, and party planner extraordinaire, Meleka of MMJ Events. She planned an entire party centered around everyone’s favorite children’s book classics.

“We knew that instead of a card, we wanted to have guests bring their favorite book as a child, she told the party-planning blog, Hostess with the Mostess. “When thinking about this, I decided to take it a step further and have the whole party be centered around children’s books. I spent some time at the library going through all the books I enjoyed as a child. Seeing the cover of a book I haven’t thought about in 20 years brought a big smile to my face. I checked out 20-plus books and went to work. The inspiration for the food and dessert table all came from details from these old school books.”

And just what do you gift the mommy-to-be at a book-themed baby shower? We have a recommendation: our new Book stroller!

It not only fits the party theme perfectly, but our Book stroller is the perfect choice for the new mom. Fully equipped with all the features, the Book is both stylish and smart. Retractable anchors on the seat create a travel system that allows our Primo Viaggio SIP 30-30 infant car seat to attach right to the stroller, which is just perfect for a new baby. And with multiple recline positions and a capacity up to 55 pounds, the Book is a stroller that Mom and baby will love for years to come.

If you do go with a book theme, here’s a little shower gift from us to you:  a book-themed party game! Download the printable file (and the answer key) here.

Special thanks to Meleka of MMJ Events for sharing her awesome party ideas and to Ashley of Henry Photography for all the beautiful photos, plus Enticing Icings who made the amazing book cake! If you live in or around the Columbus, Ohio, area, be sure to check them out!

Make a (Spring) Break for It!

Spring may be getting a slow start in most parts of the country, but at least we have spring break to look forward to. If you’re off to someplace warm (lucky you!), we thought we’d share with you some of our favorite travel advice for traveling with little ones.

Yes, you should bring your car seat, especially if you are flying. The truth is, a child-restraint system — not your lap — is the safest place for your little one during turbulence or in an emergency.  “Turbulence,” the Federal Aviation Administration says, “can happen with little or no warning. And when it does, the safest place for your child is in a child-restraint system, not in your lap. Your arms just aren’t capable of holding your child securely, especially when turbulence is unexpected.”

But what about getting through security? Lugging it through the airport? And making it fit on those tiny airplane seats? Read how our online associate, Emily, fared flying with her son and his Primo Viaggio SIP 5-70 Convertible here.

And yes, you’ll probably want a stroller too. Which stroller should you bring? We get asked that all the time, and it really depends on where you are going and what you’re doing. Generally, our top travel picks include the very versatile Book Plus, the full-featured Pliko Four and the lightweight Pliko Mini. For siblings, we suggest the Aria Twin 60-40.

Where are you headed for spring break? Let us know if you need travel advice or a stroller recommendation. We’d love to hear from you!

Viaggio sicuro! (Safe travels!)

Mom Knows Best: Real Moms Review the Book Plus

Have you heard? Our new Book Plus is getting great reviews from real moms and mommies-to-be just like you!

Shannon, an experienced mom of three, couldn’t say enough nice things about the all-new Book Plus (thank you, Shannon!) for her blog on The Simple Moms. What topped her list of favorite features?

The seat is adjustable and reversible. You can have your little tike looking at you while chillin’ in the stroller, or you can have him/her looking out … seeing where you are going.  And with the push of two buttons, the pull of two levers and a tiny bit of muscle, the changeup is complete. If your little one is tired, they can recline as well.

The available colors rock! … I received the PINK [Fucsia] option, but it also comes in a fabulous Mentha, Flamenco and others too.

Amazing, ah-mazing, basket under the stroller. It folds down so you can easily get items in and out. The basket is not only easily accessible, it’s huge!

Shannon also loved the compact fold and, last but not least, the included Rain Cover, Adult Cup Holder and Foot Muff.  “Awesome!” Shannon writes. Read her entire review here.

Expectant mom Amy of The Shopping Mama admits the process of choosing a car seat and stroller system can be quite overwhelming, but found our beloved Primo Viaggio SIP 30/30 plus our all-new Book Plus to be the perfect pair:

“Without using the Book Plus stroller, except to push around my living room for fun, it’s hard to appreciate just how awesome this contraption is. I know that it exceeds my list of prerequisite criteria, and its list of other features goes on and on. What I love about the Book Plus is that the car seat snaps onto the stroller frame easily and can face front or back. Aside from the car seat, it has a seat with multiple reclining positions, including totally flat like a bassinet, a sun visor with peekaboo window, front bar and cold weather foot muff, which awesomely enough also switches from forward to rear facing with just a quick snap.”

Amy’s husband liked the cool black “rims” and the adjustable handlebar, and they both loved how easily and compactly the Book Plus folds. You can read Amy’s full review of the new Book Plus here.

While we loved hearing the features and benefits of the Book Plus that Amy liked, what we truly loved (and we think you will too) was her excitement for the little one on the way. As parents ourselves, we remember that feeling — and still cherish it.

“It’s hard to believe that in just a few short days (or a week, or hopefully not two), I’ll be strapping my tiny little guy or girl into that darling grey polka dot car seat, loading him or her into the car and driving the hour home to our house. I will definitely sit in the back seat and stare at my little amazing creature the whole way. Don’t worry, I’ll take pictures.” (Please do, Amy! We can’t wait to see them!)
