Peg Perego reviews

I have been a long time lover of just about everything Peg Perego creates. Talk about brand loyalty.

The Peg Perego double stroller was my first purchase when I was expecting the twins. That thing was nearly indestructible. When I started by Baby Equipment Rental business, I knew I wanted to continue carrying the Peg Perego brand.

Today, after more than 5 years in business, I continue to add Peg Perego product to my inventory in Calgary, Edmonton & Winnipeg.

One of my favorite sites for Baby Travel Tips also seems to have a love for Peg Perego. Corinne from Have Baby Will Travel posted a review of a Peg Perego travel system that she and her family used for a trip to Quebec.

Love your Peg Perego infant car seat but don’t want to lug it on the plane? Call us– we’ll have one waiting for you!

Thank you Calgary Baby Show Attendees

The Calgary Baby Show was another great success this year! With a record turn out of expectant and new parents, we met a lot of bellies and babies this weekend. It doesn’t look like there is any end in sight to Calgary’s baby boom.

Thank you to everyone who visited the One Tiny Suitcase, baby equipment rentals booth at the show.

We were happy to talk to parents about our Medela Breast Pump rental service. Moms-to-be were surprised to hear that we deliver Breast Pumps to their door, 7 days a week. Just call us when you are leaving the hospital and we can have a pump to you within 24 hours.

There were several requests for live demos of the Fetal Doppler rentals too.

Also on display were some of our Baby Equipment Rentals for families travelling to Calgary. The Rock Star Baby stroller was a hit, as were the Britax Roundabout car seat and Peg Perego travel system. I can’t say enough good things about the Primo Viaggio and Aria travel system…indestructable.

Peg Perego Skate

On a recent trip home from Los Angles (LAX) I watched intently as a new mom and her Peg Perego SKATE stroller boarded my flight. I was impressed with how flat this new stroller folded down to be gate checked (try taking that on Air Canada).

The mom tried to take on her coordinating Primo Viaggio infant car seat but our flight was full, and since she had not paid for an extra seat for her son, was asked to gate check it as well.

When our flight arrived in Seattle her stroller was waiting for her at the gate, still folded flat and undamaged. She popped it open and was ready to go within minutes.

This was one of the first times I had seen a mom using a Peg Perego SKATE in the travel world. My only other experience with Peg’s newest stroller has been via my Baby Equipment Rental business in Calgary(www.onetinysuitcase.ca).

A few months ago a new mom called to inquire about renting a stroller from us. She went on to explain that she had purchased a new Peg Perego SKATE stroller and the frame had broke, within weeks of using it for the first time. We loaned her a ROCK STAR baby stroller from our inventory while her stroller was getting repaired.

Today, I received yet another call from a frustrated Calgary mom. Her 4 month old baby was ‘stroller-less’ due to an unfortunate frame break with her Peg Perego SKATE stroller. She was sending it back to the manufacturer and anticipated it taking at least two weeks to get repaired. We rented her one of our PEG PEREGO Aria strollers because it was compatible with her PEG PEREGO Primo Viaggio SIP infant car seats.

Are Calgarians tougher on these new PEG PEREGO strollers or is this a trend/flaw?
