For more than 50 years, Peg Perego has been taking children on outings: first in their famous baby carriages and strollers, and later in high chairs, car seats, pedal and battery-powered riding vehicles and accessories. Operating on an international level, with facilities in the United States, Canada and Europe, Peg PÚrego carries on its reputation of fashionable, quality products and service for juvenile products and children's riding vehicles.
Peg Perego started in Italy with the creation of a baby carriage for Giuseppe Perego's son. It was 1949, a time when baby carriages were made only by small cottage-industry creators. For their son, Mr. Perego hand-built the frame while his wife created the fabric coverings for a fashionable carriage they would use on neighborhood walks. This carriage caught the attention of other parents who admired its unique design and appearance. In response to these parents' requests for their own carriages, Peg PÚrego was born.
With a constant focus on the fashionable aspects of their baby carriages, strollers and other juvenile products, as well as continuing research and innovative product developments, the business grew. As a result, within a few years, this craftsman became an industrialist.
Following Giuseppe Perego's death in 1984, his sons continued the company's dedication to innovative and continuously improved products. In addition to keeping facilities up-to-date, Peg Perego research focuses on and continually cultivates original and innovative ideas for high-quality baby carriages, strollers, juvenile products and children's riding vehicles. And, by designing fashionable products that use quality components, Peg Perego ensures safe, comfortable, practical and enjoyable choices for parents, babies and children.
Their continued growth and success is the result of a sustained commitment to designing and creating the most well-constructed and unique juvenile products and riding vehicles available today. Their philosophy remains as it was when Peg Perego started as a small one-man Italian business in the 1940s: a dedication to original and innovative products designed for discriminating consumers who demands fashion, individuality, quality and safety in the products they purchase for their babies and young.

Peg Perego Stroller Review
Mothers who want the ultimate in fashionable luxury love Peg Perego strollers. Recognized as one of
the most fashionable Italian stroller companies in the United States and Europe, Peg Perego claims to
deliver “original and innovative products designed for discriminating consumers who demand fashion,
individuality, quality, and safety in the products they purchase for their babies and young.”
On the whole, Peg Perego stroller reviews earn high marks from consumers. Their selection is
seemingly endless, as each year new innovations are offered. The price tag is a bit on the high side, but
this is offset by the high resale value they retain.
Peg Perego’s stroller lines include Vela, A3, GT3, Si, Uno, Pliko, Aria, Tender, Duette, and Triplette.
Some stand alone; others offer options between umbrella, standard, crossbreed, and luxury models in
both single and dual seats. Each model includes unique options and differs in strengths and weaknesses.
The Triplette, for instance, is universally recognized as one of the most durable and comfortable in the
industry for parents of triplets. Uno converts from a stroller to a pram. Plikos are crossbreeds, retaining
the functionality of standard strollers with the lightweight versatility of umbrellas. The new GT3 three-
wheeler delivers the ultimate in outdoor versatility, including adjustable shock absorbers for a smooth
ride in rough terrain.
Overall, you can expect Peg Perego strollers to include the latest innovations on the market. All models
feature rich Italian cloth covering, plush and comfy for baby. Most can be removed for cleaning or
spot-cleaned easily. Special attention is placed upon comfort of both baby and you, offering improved
weather protection, reclining seats, ride-along bumper for toddlers, and built-in storage systems.
Maneuverability and smoothness are delivered with adjustable wheel lock and braking options, one-
handed steering, and adjustable handle heights. Many are convertible, allowing your baby to ride either
forward or backward, or to attach an infant carrier.
On the minus side, the priority of Peg Perego is luxury. There have been consumer complaints with
some models, especially the dual-seat strollers. Some are tricky to fold and store. Others are a bit
unwieldy in tight spaces. One model, the Aria Twin, had issues with their safety harnesses. Most
complaints were centered on flimsy, poorly attaching cup holders and trays.
Before you shop, write yourself a list of the options you want most in a stroller. Chances are good that
you will find a Peg Perego stroller built expressly for you.
