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.

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.
