Peg Perego Book Pop Up Review

Enter the world of the Peg Perego Book Pop Up.

From the fabric on the seat to the belly bar, this stroller is totally gorgeous. There is so much attention to detail and its  incredibly well made. Harper has loved riding in the Peg  Book Pop Up because the seats sits totally upright! She’s got a good view and is super cozy in the plush seat!

I have a lot of ground to cover, so I am breaking this review up a little differently than normal…enjoy!

Chassis: The Chassis (frame) is beautiful and sturdy. I’ve tried out more stroller than I  will ever admit, and often times the frame seems wobbly.  The Book Pop frame is strong and looks sleek in the dark grey/black color that’s standard for the stroller. The lock for the swivel wheels is on the Chassis, just below the Peg Perego logo. I actually really like this location as opposed to it being on the front wheels like most strollers. You don’t have to bend down to switch from swivel to lock, you just turn the knob and you are good to go!  It’s the little things…

 

Toddler Seat:  Cozy!! The fabric is absolute perfection. It’s soft and you can see right of the bat, its high quality. After all, this is a luxury stroller!

The seat itself is spacious, and offers many recline positions. The seat and backrest slide open creating a super comfortable position for the child. We’re all about comfort! The seat can face the world, or parent face, and comes with the belly bar! Love.

 Bassinet: This is probably my favorite feature of this stroller.   When I pulled this stroller out of the box,  Harper immediately climbed in to the Bassinet and laid down. She is 15 months and 25lbs. She obviously should NOT be in a Bassinet, but, I think it’s worth noting just how big it is. Very roomy! You can also FOLD the stroller with the Bassinet attached. yep. that’s awesome. The Book Pop Bassinet is approved for overnight sleep which great for travel or long days out with the baby.

Canopy: Peg got it right with their canopies. They have the best canopies on their strollers and the Pop Up is no exception. It’s huge!! It pretty much covers the entire stroller. This is great if you live in a warmer climate with lot’s of sunshine, or, if you choose to torture yourself and live somewhere like Chicago, offers amazing protection from the crazy wind, snow, and rain.

Push: I LOVE the push on the Pop Up. It’s a one hand push and fabulous! It almost feels like the push of a stroller with air tires, without the hassle of pumping the tires. The front wheels swivel or lock and are large enough that they should handle the snow just fine!

Fold: This fold is freakin’ awesome. The Book Pop up folds into itself like a book, hence the name, and it super compact! It’s crazy easy and also keeps this amazing fold with the Bassinet attached!! Rounds of applause to Peg Perego for that awesomeness.

Did I mention it folds with one hand? Boom!

Storage: The basket is large and in charge!! This is the kind of basket you want when you’re Black Friday Shopping! I could easily fit every door buster I don’t need in this basket! #watchoutshoppers

Happy Strolling!

Mixx it up!

If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram,  you’ve probably seen a million and one pictures of this beautiful stroller I’m reviewing today.  We are in LOVE with our Nuna Mixx. This stroller offers so many great features, and is definitely worth taking for a test drive.

I searched high and low for the Nuna Mixx in the Mykonos color.  It’s beyond gorgeous and was the perfect stroller to take on our trip down to the Florida Keys.  I definitely put the Mixx through some rigorous testing, and it passed with flying colors.  Let’s get started! Continue reading

Inquiring minds want to know…

What made you decide you to buy the stroller(s) you own? Here is why I ask…

I went to the Zoo the other day with both of my kiddos to enjoy a gorgeous day outside. We were our usual hot mess. B fell and cut his knee open, H had a poopslion, and I was looking like a crazy person trying to push the stroller while chasing after my freakishly fast, bleeding toddler. Totally normal day.

Anyways, I am walking around the Zoo, just looking at everyone’s strollers (I’m a weirdo), but this time was a little different.. One Mom stopped me in my tracks. There it was, in all it’s glory. A Bugaboo Buffalo. It literally took everything in me to not walk over and ask her if I can push it around really quick! I know, I have problems. She was looking like a Rock star Mom. Perfectly put together with her perfect little baby, in her perfect little Bugaboo Buffalo. I was instantly jealous….of the stroller. I kept wondering how she chose the Buffalo. Did someone tell her how amazing it is? Did she do a lot of research? Or maybe she just walked into BuyBuyBaby and saw it glowing among all the other strollers and thought, hmmm, let’s get THAT ONE! Whatever the reason, she clearly knew what she was doing.

                                                                              Isn’t she pretty?

When I was picking out my first stroller, I didn’t really know what to get. I ended up with a travel system because that’s what everyone told me I needed. I wanted my baby to be safe at all times and that was my only concern.

Prior to getting pregnant, my major concerns were whether or not taking that last shot of Tequila was a good idea…. boy how times changed… But, you see where I’m coming from. I was kind of clueless.  I had no idea there were so many set ups out there! I was totally content with my stroller until I went to the mall and saw a Mom pushing around a Uppababy Cruz. I stopped, turned around, and went straight into Galt Baby to find it. That’s when I saw the light… So. Many. Strollers. That’s also when my poor Husband lost me forever.

But, back to my original point. What made you choose your stroller? I honestly want to know. This is something that goes through my head every time I am out with the kids. I will see a family pushing around a Bumbleride Indie Twin and think, nice stroller! I wonder what made them choose that….

Send me a message tell me why you chose your stroller. Was it the brand name? Looks? It fit into your trunk? Why???? I need to know.
