The Peg Perego Pliko Switch Classico is also available as the Peg Perego Pliko Switch Classico travel system, which includes a Peg Perego infant car seat, car seat base and diaper bag. The Peg Perego Switch Classico features a 4-position seat recline, including a nearly flat position suitable for newborns. Reviewers say that, unlike similar models, the Pliko Switch Classico can be folded easily without removing the seat. Height-adjustable, telescoping handles make pushing this stroller comfortable for parents of all heights.
The seat is also reversible, so your child can face toward you or outwards, although some reviews say switching the position of the seat is a pain. The Switch Classico has a wide wheel base, so it won't fit through some tight spaces, and some owners complain that steering is cumbersome. In addition, we found several complaints that the wheels become squeaky after just a few months of use. The Peg Perego Pliko Switch Classico comes in four colors, including Tropical (orange), Kiwi (green), Java (brown) and Gala (grey/black).
