Best choiceReviewed by: Kylie from Australia, May 22, 2008
General ReviewThis is certainly the best choice pram. I purchased mine in 2005 and it's now up to the second child and still performs like new. I recommend it to everyone and even have people stop to ask what type of pram it is.
Pros* So easy to steer, even one handed as sometimes I'm carrying one child out of the shops after a screaming fit!!
* So comfy for the child with padding etc.
* Easy to remove/undo front bar.
* Easy to recline especially when child already asleep.
* Love the harness which can be detached so pram can be reclined but baby sitting up until tired then lies down.
* Moveable hood which can be pulled all the way down when child sitting up to stop the sun/rain.
* 2nd child can stand on back. Mine actually also likes to stand on the front and "play" with his brother.
*Suspension wheels making the ride a little smoother for child.
ConsCup holder does not fit a 600ml bottle or large Avent bottle but as this is the only down side, I can live with it!! Have also found out that you can purchase one of the newer style cup holders from baby stores if you really need a bigger one.
This Stroller BEATS them all - P3 is the Best!Reviewed by: Tracy from Toronto, Canada, Dec 17, 2005
General ReviewI have owned 5 strollers for 2 children - been through the cheap and expensive, and I wish that I had started out with the Pliko in the first place....then I know I would have been a 'one-stroller' owner.
ProsEasy to manouver - I can push with one hand and steer easily...even with a preschooler riding on the back step. This thing also folds well, is light in weight, and will tuck into small trunks and spaces. Looks beautiful, pushes like a dream, and very versatile in positioning for children of all ages and stages. Good sized basket and I LOVE the adjustable handles - great for tall or short caregivers.Front bar easier removes for convenience, and the whole unit stands on its own when folded. A lovely, lovely stroller. I have had 3 Peg Perego strollers (Aria single, Converse/Caravel Pram/Travel system and the P3), and this is the one-stop all-purpose Peg Perego of your dreams. Worth every penny, you completely get what you pay for.
ConsNone in my eyes. Others have complained about the cup holder on the handle being too small for a cup of coffee, but frankly, you shouldn't have steaming hot fluid above your little angel's head in the first place. Fits a 500ml bottle of water just fine.
Great compact pram to carry baby/toddlerReviewed by: Anonymous user from Western Australia, Sep 05, 2005
General ReviewThis pram is slightly larger than the average umbrella stroller but has all the features found in bigger deluxe prams:
*lie flat backrest
*full hood that comes down to the bumber bar
*height adjustable handle
*roomy basket that is easy to access from the sides of the pram
*boot cover and zip in rain cover.
*bumper bar that pivots out from one side so older children can climb out easily.
*Stands alone when folded
*folded shape is shorter (but wider) than other umbrella strollers.
*harness can be attached to the backrest or come loose- allowing child more freedom of movement (to lean over the bumper bar for example). I loved this feature, but some people find it annoying (too much freedom is not always a good thing!).
But by far the most excellent feature of this pram is that it has a toddler step built into the back of the pram that can accomadate a toddler or child (standing room only). The toddler step is not accessable when the pram is in fulll recline- but once your younger child is able to sit partially reclined or can sit upright then this pram becomes a fabulous addition to a 2 kid household. Because its so compact and lightweight it is great for travelling, shopping and day long outings etc but you have the option for all the kids to jump on board if they get tired.
The big down side to this pram- and its a biggy- is that it is very difficult to steer. The front wheels seem to stick and its hard to change direction easily. This poor manouverability is somewhat over come with two kids on board- as the toddler puts weight over the back wheels and lifts the front wheels off the ground a little bit
and certainly the ability to carry two kids at all on such a small pram far outweighs this one negative.
So overall I would not recomend this pram if you had one child only, but if you are looking for a 'shopping' or travelling pram that can accomadate two children then I highly recomend this one.
ProsCompact, lightweight pram with all the features of a 'big pram'
Can stand alone when folded.
Fabulous for carying two children.
