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.

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?

Your Sneak Peek of the Book Plus

Guess which new stroller from the ABC Kids Expo that Baby Gizmo just couldn’t wait to showcase? Our very own all-new Book Plus!

Smart and stylish, the new Book Plus features a reversible seat that allows baby to face you, or the world ahead. Named for its compact, book-like fold, the new Book Plus offers an innovative design that allows for a quick and easy stand-alone fold. It can be folded with or without the seat.

The Book Plus features easy-drive wheels with 12 ball bearing and suspension that allow for 360-degree agility and require less effort in pushing. Paired with the included foot muff, the stroller easily transforms into carriage mode. In carriage mode, the adjustable backrest reclines to several positions, including a newborn-ready flat recline. The stylish one-piece handlebar is adjustable, making it easy to push for parents of any height.

The Book Plus chassis will be available in silver or super-chic black and will come in six colorways — Flamenco, Mentha, Stone, Fucsia, Pois Black and Pois Grey.

The best part? The Book Plus can be paired with the Primo Viaggio SIP 30-30 infant car seat to make it a travel system, the Navetta XL bassinet to turn it into a pram or the Practico seat to make it a compact and lightweight toddler stroller.

Tell us … What do you think of the new Book Plus?

Peg Perego 2012 Pliko Mini

Ideal for travel or as an everyday stroller, the Pliko Mini is the perfect combination of practicality and style.

Introduced just this year (in 2011), this already-popular, full-featured umbrella stroller is lightweight, folds compactly, and maneuvers with ease. And for 2012, this new favorite will keep all of its great features and continue to come in four vibrant colors—Aloe, Fire, Iron, and Neon—that are sure to make the Pliko Mini a continued top pick for the new year.

All four color collections look great on the stylish Mini. Aloe, a bright green, and Fire, a true red, make a stylish statement, while Iron, a striking charcoal, is both classic and timely. Neon, a black/neon multi stripes combination, is another that is sure to turn heads.

But the Mini isn’t all about looks…A streamlined version of its older brother, the beloved classic Pliko P3, the Pliko Mini weighs in at just 13 pounds but still has all the features you’ve come to expect from Peg Perego:

  • Easy, one-hand fold that stands alone
  • Three-position backrest (reclines more than 150 degrees!)
  • Two-position leg rest
  • Telescoping adjustable handles
  • Generous canopy with window
  • Side carrying handle
  • Lockable front swivel wheels
  • Adult cup holder

The Pliko Mini is a great choice for families on the go. At just 19 1/4″ wide, 40 1/6″ high, and 33 1/3″ deep, there’s not a single train platform or jetway where the Pliko Mini will fail to move with agility. And the Mini is a great everyday stroller too. With its astonishingly compact folded dimensions—just 37 1/2″ high by 13 1/2″ wide by 13″deep, it will easily fit into even the most crowded of trunks, making it the must-have take along for running quick trips and errands.

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:
