Terrific Triplet Transportation! 3 Thumbs up! By Emnickalex, USA
January 1, 2004
We bought a previously owned Peg Perego Triplette stroller from another MOM on a triplet support site when I was around 15 weeks pregnant. My trio are now almost 2 yrs old and this stroller is still going strong. When trying to decide which triple stroller to buy, we found that the Peg Perego consistently had very good reviews. We have found ourselves, that this stroller is indestructible and additionally it has very good resale value, which is great, since money is always tight when you have multiples! Even though my children are almost 2, they still have plenty of room in the stroller seats. The seats recline if they want to nap, and the sun canopies are each removable, as are the seat covers (which is very important when you have 3 hungry toddlers devouring french fries, ice cream, etc from within this stroller). The stroller is rather long and heavy but I feel that is to be expected when you are dealing with a stroller built for 3. Once you get hang of it, it is not difficult to push or manuever. The triplette stroller does not fold up but instead has to be taken apart to fit in the back of the minivan. I don't know that it would fit in the standard car trunk although I am guessing that most families with multiples are in need of a minivan anyways. Once you have taken it apart and put it back together a few times, it is easy to do and can be done rather quickly. I have found that it is almost impossible to push this stroller while carrying a cup. And unfortunately the stroller does not have a cup holder. However we were able to buy a cup holder for around $5 which just snaps on to the stroller handle and that has worked very well for us. My only other complaint is that the stroller's storage basket is rather shallow. My large diaper bag does not fit there. If you are only using the basket for small shopping bags or for jackets, it is just fine. Overall I think this stroller is a great value. The frame is strong and the wheels are large and heavy. I have used it on grass, gravel, concrete, as well as at the mall, with no problems. I would highly recommend it!

This is now my fourth high chair, and I love it. We had two Evenflos (had to machine wash pad and doesnt sit completely upright) and a Fisher Price Healthy Ocean Wonders (the tray is so loose) that I finally got this and I am so happy. Money well spent. The colors are awesome, it is so easy to clean, safe, all around A++ high chair. Plus, you only have to put the wheels on, it comes assembled, unlike the other brands. Love it!
Another GREAT Peg Perego product!! (Review of the SWIVEL wheeled version) By Mom, USA

The stroller is easy to assemble and disassemble, takes maybe 5 minutes TOPS to do it. The G-matic seats just click into place on the three positioned plates on the chassis, and removal is by pushing two buttons on either side of the arms of the actual seating units and lifting up. You can also use instead of the actual stroller seat, Peg Perego's G-matic infant carseats! This does take up a lot of room to store and transport and at 60" long (yes, that's 5 foot!) it does take a bit of room to turn. This can also be used as a double stroller with LOTS of room. You can position it as a double with both seats facing mom, both seats facing out, or the seats facing each other. As a triple, all three seats can either face mom, or face out...not in combination as the foot rests and bumper bars would collide. This has a HUGE basket underneath, the BEST out of ANY Peg Perego stroller on the market. And possibly the best out of any TRIPLE on the market! Each seat is covered in the typical Peg Perego fabric. Up until 2003 the Triplette was only available in the Chesapeake pattern (navy/white), however in 2003 they also added Black Sable (black/grey/white). The Chesapeake seat fabric is hand wash only. (bummer) On MY stroller, the previous owner had altered the harnesses to make them each a 3pt harness, though these can be replaced with the standard factory issued 5pt harnesses from Peg Perego for about $25/seat. Each seat also has a full hood with a zip out panel for air movement, while still being able to be positioned in any position. Each seat also has a removable bumper bar, and a multi-position(2) footrest and has 3 positions of recline. The newer models also come standard with a boot for each seat to make them enclosed. The seats also have a netting at the bottom so that when they are fully reclined you can attach the mesh to the bumper bar to create a fully enclosed seat for infants that they can't slide/wiggle out of.
Great stroller! By S. Larrea

I have bought several strollers over the years especially as my needs have changed. I love lightweight umbrella type strollers as they fit the needs of my lifestyle, but I always miss features like cupholders, a snack tray, etc. This stroller has the both of best worlds. I read all the complaints about this stroller. I have to admit I was a little hesitant about purchasing it. My only advice is to take your time putting it together--make sure you put the wheels and cupholder on right. I have not had any problems with steering, cup holder popping off, etc. Great stroller!
We LOVE this stroller! By Shari, OK

This is the ultimate side-by-side double stroller in my opinion! I have the single Aria and love it so much that I knew I wanted the double (now that we are expecting our second child) as soon as it came out! This stroller weighs only 14lbs and pushes like a DREAM! It folds SO compactly that I could easily fit TWO of them in the trunk of my Nissan Altima (I have the Twin and the single both in their right now - with plenty of room to spare). The basket underneath is HUGE - I can't imagine not being able to fit everything I would need in there PLUS tons of shopping bags ;) The stroller has two independent canopies which is great if one child wants to be in the sun and the other doesn't (which happens more than you think just because they want to be difficult!). The front bumper bars in the Aria Twin can either be removed completely or swiveled open (again, independently) so the child can climb in and out on their own (which my 2-year old LOVES to do - you know how independent they are!). The 5-point harness is great because it keeps them from climbing out of the stroller but still allows them to move freely as it's not attached to the back of the seat. The Aria Twin pushes SO easily, even with just one child in it - you would think having weight on one side would throw it off balance but it doesn't at all! I bought the Aurora pattern because I ordered it from a website that had a coupon code so I could get a discount (it was the only website I could find that carried this stroller that had a coupon code) and this was the only pattern they had. I wasn't too fond of the colors based on the pictures but it is MUCH nicer in person! I'm sooooo glad I got the one I did! I can't think of anything I DON'T like about this stroller - I highly recommend it to anyone with twins or two children of different ages, like me =)
Worth Every Penny! By Rob, DE

Before buying we looked at Maclaren, Bugaboo and Inglesina. After careful review of features, materials, colors, ease of use and overall design we purchased the Peg Perego. We live in South Florida (Weston) and nothing is within walking distance therefore it needs to be easy to fold and unfold. This is where we have seen and read that the Bugaboo is not very practical (which was one of our favorites prior to our research). This is our first stroller and it seems that we will not need to buy another one any time soon. If we would need to purchase another one (for a small baby) today, it would be the Peg Perego.
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.
4th ones a charm! so gorgeous and so light! By Tammy, Ventura, CA

We have 10 month old twins, and we've been through 3 strollers leading up to this purchase... WISH I'D DONE IT WAYYYY SOONER! WE HAVE THIS INCREDIBLE 2006 ARIA TWIN! But you get what you pay for here! Not only is it stunningly gorgeous, but it's LIGHT LIGHT LIGHT! 16 pounds or so without kids! WOOHOO! I am a little gal and I can pick it up with one hand NO PROBLEM! The seats recline to ALMOST laying down, which would work perfectly for even the tiniest babies. It fits easily into the back of my suv, steers like a dream, super simple to open and close, neat little snack trays for babies, HUGE storage basket underneath... and did I mention that it is GORGEOUS! I am VERY impressed... I only wish I'd bought it 1st instead of 4th! And now I have this sleek, easy to use, LIGHT, perfect stroller! BRAVO PEG PEREGO! You have earned a customer for life with me!

I bought the Aria Twin 5 months ago and have been very happy with it. My 3 year old is getting too big for it now so my next purchase for my 9 month old will be a Pliko P3. Peg Perego is the best brand of stroller I've used and I wouldn't buy anything else. The Aria Twin is very easy to open and close and fits in the truck of my car with room to spare for groceries. The only downfall to this stroller is that the basket may drag on uneven surfaces if you're carrying items in it, even if they're not that heavy.
