Finally someone got it right!!, By R.G. Boston
January 1, 2004
What can I say, sombody finally nailed it. I have owned 5 strollers in the last 3yrs. I was just about ready to give up until I saw this one, it rides like a dream. I am 5'9 and Hubby 6'3 and we dont have to slouch to push it. Yes the basket is only accessible from the front,or the side but I can live with that. It holds weight beautifully, not like the other light weight stroller we have that as soon as you put that little ones in it seems they shrink about 10 times and extremely hard to push and they just look so uncomfortable. I love the reclining positions, and it is as light as feather. The only thing I wish they would have considered was giving us a peek hole in the top of the canopy to see the little ones, and I would wish for a bigger canopy as when she is asleep and fully reclined the light still hits her in the eyes. Did I mention it has a pocket in the back to carry the keys or wallets! Thanks 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.
I Chose the Right Double Stroller By Beth, Philadelphia

Great Stroller if you don't need strong basket
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 =)
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!!
It's Very Useful By K. Lamb, NH
January 1, 2004
My baby has used this since she was 4 months old It has a sturdy wide base..It has height adjusters...you can recline it..very secure safty belts but I do make sure my babies hands are nowhere near it when I buckle it thats the only thing I dislike about this highchair. I dont find it hard to clean ..it comes with two trays and it has wheels and folds up definately worth the money especially now because it's on sale ..I paid full price :(
Great Stroller By Mom, Pocatello, ID
January 1, 2004
I purchased this stroller as a travel stroller to fly with and to leave in my SUV. We just returned from a trip to Disneyland with our 4 year old and 8 month old. The stroller was wonderfull from the minute we used it. My Graco Snugride carseat fits in the stroller very securely. The stroller pushes very nicely with my 8 month old in the front and my 40 pound 4 year old on the back standing. We navigated through the crowds of Disneyland with no problems. My 4-year old dressed up like Ariel mermaid for dinner one night and we had her stand on the back of the stroller to get to dinner in California Adventure and people commented that she looked like she was riding on a "Chariot." She enjoyed riding both in front and on the back. The great thing about this stroller is, even with my 40 pound daugher riding,either in front or stand in on the back, it still pushed and turned very nicely. We own 4 strollers total. This one is by far my favorite for travel and to keep in the car. It is very compact compared to my Graco and very stable compared to my Combi travel stroller. I still use my Inglesina Magnum for walks from home because of the big air filled wheels.Over all the Pliko 3 is a wonderful stoller with being lightwieght, compact, stable, a smooth ride and both of my children can ride without compromising anything. Definetly worth the money. I wished I would have purchased this before I bought the Graco and Combi. It combines the smooth ride and stability of the Graco with the compactness of the Combi. Overall the "complete stroller."
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.
We Love this High Chair!!! By Tracy, Houston, TX
January 1, 2004
We bought this same high chair 10 years ago when my first daughter was born and we absolutely loved it!! At the time,the only reason we bought it was because they had it in all white and we didn't want one with colors all over it. But as far as the high chair goes we loved every thing about it, super easy to clean and the reclining positions were great for a determined 4 month old..(they always want to be at the table with everyone). Also, many a times my kids fell asleep while eating and rather than wake them, all I had to do is recline the seat and they would sleep with out a problem because it has such a comfy seat cover. It held up wonderfully for 7 years. We thought we were done with kids and got rid of it, now I am expecting again and I have researched high chairs all over again, and have decided that this model is still the best for your money out there. We are buying this again!!
Best light weight stroller ever! By Bethany, Chicago
January 1, 2004
I am someone who does lots of research on my products before buying, especially expensive purchases. I LOVE this stroller. I am usually very happy with peg perego (except the highchair). This stroller moves very well. It is light wieght and easy to handle. I have traveled through many airports with it as well as others and have been very pleased with my purchase. It is a light weight stroller but it is the only one I ever use. You do not need to buy one of those big heavy ones. The only thing that bugs me is the basket on the bottom. It is only front accesable. But I can live with that. It also has the toddler stand on the back which we are just starting to use when we are out shopping and my toddler doesn't want to sit. I let her stand in the back and I put the bags in her seat. Also this stroller reclines fully and is perfect for diaper changes or naps. I highly recommend this stroller! And I love the new colors!
