Must-Have Accessories for Summer

Summer is here, and the heat is on. From parasols to cup holders, Peg Perego accessories will help keep baby (and you) comfortable and cool throughout the hazy, lazy days of the season.

Skate Umbrella. Peg Perego designed the Skate Umbrella specifically for the Skate System. It attaches easily to the chassis of the Skate, and it can be used when using the stroller seat, bassinet or Primo Viaggio SIP 30/30. And with its adjustable and versatile design, it can also be used as a free-standing umbrella.

Universal Umbrella. Here’s an insider tip you’ll only get here…We still have a few Universal Umbrellas from our 2010 line in stock and available at our online Overstock Store. The Universal Umbrella will work with the Pliko P3, Pliko Switch, Si, Aria OH and Aria Twin 60/40.

Rain Cover. Don’t let a pop-up summertime storm catch you off guard. Our easy-to-attach Rain Cover is a must-have for summer. We’ve designed a Rain Cover to fit our Pliko P3 Compact, Pliko Switch Compact, Pliko Mini, Si, GT3, GT3 for Two, Duette SW, Triplette SW, Uno, Vela Easy Drive and Aria OH.

Mosquito Netting. When the sun starts to go down, keep pesky mosquitoes away from your sweet baby with our Mosquito Netting. The easy-to-attach netting is constructed with elastic to fit snugly around the hood and foot of our strollers. Our Mosquito Netting is designed to fit our Pliko P3 Compact, Pliko Switch Compact, Si, Pliko Mini, GT3 and GT3 for Two strollers.

Adult Cup Holder. Have you lost your cup holder? You can order a replacement at our online Overstock Store. There, we sell replacement cup holders for our Pliko P3, Aria, Aria Twin, Si, Pliko Switch and Skate System.

Best Strollers for Fireworks, Parades, and Festivals

Summer is here, and the Fourth of July is just days away, which means we are officially entering the season of fireworks, parades, and festivals. Are you ready? Is your stroller?

Any experienced parent will tell you that having the right stroller can make all the difference when attending special events. Here are our top Peg Perego picks for all of those great summertime festivities.

For older babies and toddlers, we love the Pliko Mini. Being just 19 1/4″ wide, it’s a breeze to maneuver through crowds. And, thanks to amazing design, it has all the comfort features your child will need for a long day out—a deep recline, an adjustable leg rest, and a full hood. Plus, at just 13 pounds and with its convenient carrying handle, the Mini is easy to still take along even when your little one is in more of a walking mood (which is bound to change at some point in the day, right?)

If you’ve got more than one small child, we recommend the Aria Twin 60/40 for special events. Super lightweight and compact, the Aria Twin 60/40 side-by-side double stroller allows both passengers to get a good (forward-facing) view. Likewise, with large independent hoods and individual snack trays with cup holders, it’s easy to keep both of your little passengers happy. Furthermore, since it was designed to fit through standard doorways, the Aria Twin 60/40 maneuvers surprisingly well through crowds.

Now, for a newborn, or a very young baby, we recommend the Pliko Switch Compact, which gives you freedom to position baby to face you, or the world ahead. Additionally, with just a few easy moves, the stroller seat converts to a carriage, which is perfect for sleepy babies, or diaper changes on the fly. We also love the Pliko Switch Compact for its large zippered hood that can be used as a sun canopy.

In a hurry to get one of these strollers before the holiday weekend? Use our Store Locator to find an authorized retailer near you. Happy Fourth of July!
