Peg Perego Stroller
One of the top European baby strollers that have made quite a name for themselves in the US would have to be in my opinion the Peg Perego Stroller. A stroller that is built to last. It is sturdy, lightweight, easy to fold and an all round great stroller. From personal experience I can vouch for all of the above qualities. All four of my kids have been in our Peg Perego Pliko P3 stroller and its still going strong! So out of my amazement for the Peg durability I decided to make a post about the 3 top Peg Perego Strollers. The 3 I have chosen are in no particular order.
Top 3 Peg Perego Strollers
- Made from aluminum, its a lightweight umbrella stroller that weighs only 18.7lbs
- Wheels are large and all have wheel suspension, the front wheels can swivel or lock with independent brake in the rear
- Stroller is compatible with the Peg Perego Primo Viaggio Car Seat (this is sold separately), retractable car seat anchors
- Comes with a child tray with double cup holders, these are hinged so they can easily be removed
- Footboard, non skid, at the back which allows an older child to stand at the back (only to be used when the stroller is in the sitting position)
- Telescoping handles with comfort padding can be adjusted to fit each parent’s height
- Easy to fold with one hand and folds compactly and stands alone when folded.
- Basket under the stroller is of a decent size, not huge
- Canopy is a good size and is adjustable and has a peek a boo window
- The hood also has a loop which is handy to hang your baby’s best toy on it.
- Stroller is suited from newborn to 45 lbs
- 5 point harness
- Reclines – the P3 reclines to nearly flat 170 degrees, (personally that never bothered any of my kids)
To sum up
People love the way the Pliko P3 is a stroller that is a lightweight umbrella stroller that is easy to fold, that folds compactly, is padded and comfortable for a child. The added bonus of the non skid footboard is a great plus. The cons are that the basket is not very large and there isn’t an added pocket for car keys, wallet, mobile phone. In short, this is a sturdy, well made , easy to manuever and fold umbrella stroller, one that is definately a good buy.
2. Peg Perego SI
The Peg Perego SI is another lightweight umbrella stroller that folds compactly and easily and stands alone when folded.
