Give Your Baby a Leg Up with the Peg Perego Skate


Give Your Baby a Leg Up with the Peg Perego Skate

No, we’re not talking about making your kid the next Michelle Kwan. This Skate is a versatile carriage-to-stroller system from Peg Perego that has just been updated as a three-piece system with new colors — including Kiwi, Tropical and Java (sounds delicious) — and an even larger removable bassinet with a handle for easier carrying.

Well, as easy as it can be, considering you’re also lugging a diaper bag, toys, blankets, what remains of your sanity…

The bassinet feature has also been redesigned to offer baby additional padding, while the seat feature features more space for the quickly growing tot. Knowing that ease is key for harried parents, they’ve also made the stroller easier to open and close. The rest of the Skate, however, is the similar to last year’s version: The bassinet can stand alone and offers a 3-position height adjustment plus an adjustable backrest. Aaahhh. Meanwhile, the reversible seat allows baby to face parents or, if he grows tired of you making googly eyes at him, you can turn him around to see our crazy world.

The company’s Primo Viaggio SIP 30-30 car seat (sold separately) can be attached directly to the frame with the included adapters. Best of all, the stroller has a “one-hand” folding system that you’ll appreciate as you also juggle that diaper bag, baby, toys and, of course, the crumbs of your sanity.

With the Skate, you’ll be gliding around the neighborhood in style in no time. (See what we did there?)

Available at among other online retail stores; $699.99
