I just previewed the new Peg Perego Skate Stroller at the ABC show in Vegas. I’m soo excited about the new Skate stroller. Firstly the retail price of the skate was lowered from $900 to $699! What can be better than that. And with the price drop come some major improvements!!
The new Peg Perego Skate Stroller weighs only 23 lbs! The original Skate stroller weighed 33 lbs. With the 10lb weight decrease on the new Peg Perego Skate stroller comes a better quality stroller as well. Sometimes while decreasing the weight of a product the company compromises on the quality! Not the case with the New 2010 Peg Perego Skate!
The Skate has a really really large seat, larger than most strollers in its class. Thats really useful for an older child. In addition, the Peg Perego Skate System has really large bassinet which is great as the newborn grows up. (Much larger than the bugaboo cameleon bassinet).
The Peg Perego Skate Food Tray (shown above) is a great way to turn your stroller into snack time for your baby. Complete with a cup holder for baby and a large tray for food storage, the Peg Perego Skate Snack Tray is a must have add on to your Peg Perego Skate Stroller. Although most accessories come standard with the stroller, the snack tray is an additional add on and will cost $29.
As seen in the photo above, the Peg Perego Skate System seat is reversible. It can be forward facing for baby to see out and rear facing for baby to see mom. Thats really nice for when baby is 12 months of age. (At that point, they rather look around than look at mommy!).
The Peg Perego Skate System for 2010 has an optional Umbrella. I personally think the hood is good enough sun protection but for those that dont, you have have option!
Lets Talk, Peg Perego Skate Stroller Bassinet. The Skate Bassinet is really great. Its got tons of padding and a great matress for a really comfortable spot for baby to sleep. All the padding though, does not take away from the Skate bassinet size. Its still really large and baby should fit into it until about 7 months or so. (Depending of course of your babys size!).
Peg Perego Skate System Travel System – The Peg Perego Skate Chassis easily takes the Primo Viaggio car seat for a real cool looking travel system (See pic above!).
The Peg Perego Skate Rain Cover – comes included standard with your Skate stroller. Most companies dont have that feature and charge $50 or so for one!
The Peg Perego Skate Stroller under seat basket is really great and improved. The pop up basket can hold lots of things and when not in use it colapses flat! How Cool?
As you can see from the pix above, the Peg Perego Skate Stroller System can fold with (and without) the stroller seat in one piece. Thats a really great feature for getting in and out of the car!
Bottom Line… The Peg Perego Skate Stroller System ROCKS! So much for your buck and one hot looking great stroller!
