This stroller is great!!! By Annissa
October 22, 2006
This is my third stroller in 2 years, and this one is a keeper. It is compact (fits in the toolbox of a pickup when collapsed) and light weight. The basket on the bottom is very roomy, as big as the one on my travel system. Great recline for comfy sleeping. The fabric is very easy to clean, and durable. Has 2 cup holders, one on tray one on handle bar. One of my favorite things is the harness. It is a five point harness, but the shoulder staps are not attached to the back of the stroller, your child is completely safe and strapped in, but has plenty of freedom to move around within the stroller. My 2 year old daughter loves this stroller. It was a great investment and the big kicker is that it is beautiful as well (we have the Rose)!!! Highly recommend!!!
The best way to transport triplets in one stroller. By Damadm, Miami Lakes, FL
January 1, 2004
My sister just had triplets. She was worried at first because she had no idea how she was going to transport them all at the same time. She was very lucky to be able to find this stroller in a consignment shop for only $150. After she bought the stroller, she had to buy a minivan to fit the stroller into. This stroller will not fit just in any vehicle, so try to keep that in mind. Also, the stroller is over 50 pounds and is very heavy. But, I guess what do you expect when you want something that will move three kids at once. This stroller has been a dream for my sister. Moving three kids at once is much easier with this stroller. The seats are adjustable, they can be set into three different positions. Each seat has its own sun canopy and each of them are removable. In order to fold the stroller, you must take each seat out. At first, the stroller can be hard to get used to but once you figure it out the stroller is very easy to use. I would definitely recommend this stroller to any one with triplets or three kids that are all stroller-age. Just keep in mind that it is huge and heavy and can be expensive. If you are looking for something like this, I would recommend that you visit consignment shops and check the classified ads before buying it new.
Great Stroller if you don't need strong basket By Janet, PA

Recommended only if you don't mind replacing the basket over time
Love it!! By S.L.R., ME

We bought this high chair for our daughter and we love it. It's easy to use and set up. I would have given five stars but to unfold/fold it you need two hands which sometimes isn't too "handy" when you have a crying baby in one of the them. The seat adjusts up and down so your child can sit right at the table with you. As stated above, the legs fold together so you can store the chair when not using. The chair cover is also easy to take off when it needs to be cleaned(which we do in the tub) and is attached with snaps. My little one is ten months old, 19 pounds, 27.5 inches and not even close to outgrowing this chair. I definitely recommend this chair. Hope this helps!!
Containment at it's finest! By Virostko, Coshocton, OH

We bought this stroller just after the birth of our third daughter. At the time our other 2 daughters were 1 and 2 years old. This stroller made many trips to the mall, zoo, parks, etc. And was a lifesaver because our oldest was a wanderer and our third was rather heavy! The Triplette is designed to be comfortable for any age up to about 45 pounds. The seats can be reversed to all face backwards. All seats have 3 positions, as well as adjustable feet rests. Canopies for each individual seat are great for the park or zoo. Removable front seat bars make it easy for the bigger child to get in and out. The unique seat belt is easier to use than most and prevent you from "forgetting" to use the between the legs portion of the seat belt. This stroller has large wheels than go well on most surfaces. The only disadvantages to this stroller are it's size and weight distribution of children. This stroller is very long and does not turn on a dime! To transport the Triplette you either have to have a very large cargo area or take the seats off and fold the frame down. Even folded down it takes up the whole cargo area of a Ford Aerostar and Plymouth Grand Voyager. The other problem you might experience is if you have 3 "stair step" children, you will probably want the youngest in the back closest to you, and the oldest up front so they can have the best view and it is easiest for them to get in and out. But with this set up you are likely to experience tipping. The heaviest child in the front and the littlest in the back can be a problem, especially if the front child is "bouncy"! There is a storage basket underneath the current models so you have a place for the diaper bag and purchases. Even with it's "problems" this is a great stroller! I could not have gotten by without it!

Good product. Worth the money
Compact convenient By O.M., CA

I like that this stroller is an umbrella stroller. I have an SUV and not many things can fit in the rear. I replaced the travel stroller with this convenient umbrella stroller. I also wanted a light weight stroller that I can lift with one hand. It actually is not as light as I expected but it is much lighter than the travel stroller. The steering is much better that the travel stroller. However, for my 3 1/2 month old baby the strap harness is not ideal since it comes in contact with her face. It looks as if within time she will out grow that. Overall, I enjoy strolling her in it.
LIght-Weight enough for moms and roomie enough for babies. By Savvymommy
September 15, 2006
After weeks of research and debate, I finally decided on the Pliko Lite in Rose over the Maclaren Quest. I was originally looking into buying a light-weight umbrella stroller for my 17 months old daughter to hand down the bugaboo to my newborn. And after using the Bugaboo Frog for over a year, I was worried that not many strollers can fit my numerous needs. I really liked the Maclaren Quest for its light-weight, compact fold, and good reviews from its users but I was a little hesistant to spend that much money on a stroller that I can only use for quick trips. I was looking for a stroller that can do it all..be light-weight with an umbrella fold yet still have an accessible basket, comfortable and roomie seat for baby, and a good sized canopy. I live in So. California where I'm constantly in and out of the car, but once I'm out, I stroll with the baby for longer than an hour and didn't want to lose all the nice features that a full or medium-sized stroller has for an umbrella stroller. Fortunately I came across the Pliko lite during my research and it seemed to fit my requirements the best. The basket is roomie (only accessible from the sides or the front but I can live with that), the seat is plush with extra paddings on the sides so my daughter can easily lean her head to the side when taking a nap, the seat reclines far enough so she can be comfortable sleeping. Websites say that this stroller has a 2 point recline system which is a little misleading because it actually has three positions. One upright, one about 1/3 down and one 2/3 down, which makes it good enough for an older baby. The canopy comes down pretty far but it is missing a viewing window which I would like. But once again, my daughter is old enough to sit well on her own so I don't feel too bad about not checking up on her constantly through the canopy. It also comes with a decent cup holder but it is too small to hold large drinks. It can probably fit a small water bottle or sippy cups. But once again, I can't expect a full sized cup holder on an umbrella stroller. The fold is really easy and most importantly, the stroller stands on its own when folder which is a huge plus for me. It is not TOO light-weight but not too heavy either. I'd say about 16 lbs. So basically if you want a really light-weight umbrella stroller for quick trips, Maclarens are probably better. But if you're williing to deal with a little more weight for the comfort of your baby, I'd definitely recommend the Pliko Lite. My daughter loves this stroller and looks so comfortable in it that I don't think she'll miss her old Bugaboo. I'm glad I made this purchase and would definitely recommend it as an every day stroller for malls, outdoor areas, amusement parks, etc.
Best stroller By Chaundra, Detroit
January 1, 2004
Despite what the site says the Britax Companion infant seat does fit the Pliko P3 Classico. The stroller is lightweight, beautiful and easy to use. For our first child we wanted the best and we got it. I highly recommend this stroller. It is so much better than that bulky Graco travel system not to mention it's classier.
mint pilko lite By Kate, Hainesport, NJ
January 1, 2004
my daughter is 19 months we've had 5 strollers an evenflo travel system, a smaller graco, then a saftey first jogger, a jeep umbrella stroller, a full size combi, and finally the last purchase was the pilko lite it is a lifesaver, the first stroller didn't fit into my trunk and the latches that locked it in to place were broken in 3 months, the smaller graco was very uncomfortable to push and it was not very roomy for the baby either, the front wheels on the jogger just slid instead of rolled and it was very heavy and bulky, the reclining jeep umbrella stroller was the comapctness i was searching for but it was sized for a doll not a real baby, the combi was beautiful it even had speakers but you couldnt turn it no matter how you tried to push it was by far the worst steering on any stroller i've had,after all these strollers my husband and i were burnt, i found the pilko lite shopping one day its huge big enough for a five year old, it glides across any surface and spins on a dime, it folds as small as any cheap umbrella stroller and you can even attach an infant carrier carseat. it has plenty of storage and a cup holder, also reclines lower then some of the cheaper large strollers...... this stroller is worth every penny, (i just wish we'd found it sooner.....) My daughter loves it she is actually excited when we get it out of the car, the padding in the seat is the thickest i've seen, she falls asleep after two minutes in the stroller. If we had gone to the peg perego brand in the begining instead of trying to be cheap we would have saved a whole lot of money.........I just can't tell how great this stroller is.
