Peg-Pérego Book Plus

see 13 parent reviews

The Peg-Pérego Book Plus is a superior model of the Book line, featuring a reversible Pop Up seat. If you choose the Classico version of the Book Plus, all the accessories have to be purchased separately. However, the Completo version comes with a rain cover and an apron. There is also an option to purchase just the chassis and then add either the optional seat, Navetta carrycot or Primo Viaggio car seat. Alternatively, the Book Plus can be purchased in one of the stroller systems: Elite, Pop Up or XL.

The aluminum chassis is equipped with a suspension system as well as a shaped handlebar. Thanks to the wheels with suspension and 12 ball bearings, the steering is by 30% easier compared to similar strollers. The stroller can be folded one-handedly the way a book does, hence the name. Another advantage of this stroller is the large shopping basket with easy load system, meaning that the rear part can be folded down.

The ergonomic seat can be reclined flat, including the leg rest. The hood features a strap for attaching a favorite toy. It is quite short in its basic form, but it can be extended by opening another panel, and can also be used as a follow-the-sun shield. The older, pre-2014 models can be recognized by a different type of seat with a hood with a non-mesh viewing window, that you can fold in itself, vertically.

parents say thx^^

Very bad for me


The stroller is very bad - for me. The only thing that suited me was the size of the carrycot. After a couple of months it started to squeak and creaked even after repeated lubrication. For me, living in a village where the roads are what they are, it was unusable after a couple of months.

The carrycot is great, but the seat part has a lot of flaws. It is a stroller more suitable for the city than for the terrain.

  • thicker waterproof fabric
  • rotation to both sides
  • easy clipping of the car seat, bassinet, and the seat part
  • adjustable handle
  • ventilation holes on both the bassinet and the seat
  • relatively large canopy on the seat
  • large basket
  • perfect changing bag
  • a bit cumbersome chassis
  • inability to position the bottom of the seat

Among the pros of the stroller is definitely the thicker waterproof fabric, which protects perfectly even in colder, windy weather. The seat faces both sides, the easy attachment of the car seat is nice, the bassinet and the seat or the pivoting handle are also excellent features. There's a relatively large canopy on the seat with ventilation holes. I also appreciated the large basket and the perfect changing bag.

The downsides are the somewhat cumbersome chassis and the inability to position the bottom of the seat unit.

  • car-compact
  • easy to fold
  • good hood
  • reversible seat
  • good handling
  • I miss wheel suspension

The stroller is handy for frequent transfers by car and especially around the city.

Easy to handle

  • Seat - folds out into lying position, long canopy
  • Bassinet - reflux positioning option
  • Car seat - lightweight
  • Frame - easy to fold
  • Seat could be a bit softer / more padded

The stroller is easy to handle. It can be folded and unfolded. It is easy to attach each part to the chassis. It can handle any terrain. We were satisfied.

  • A prestigious brand
  • Probably all the extra features
  • Same seat as Inglesina Trilogy, but Inglesina is more sophisticated (fabrics, studs, handle, easy reclining in both directions)
  • Ours was loose after 1 child (where it was folded it was slightly loose)
  • Can't be lifted to the curb easily - needs to be pushed with your foot in
  • Wheels also the usual quality - plastic - caught in pebbles
  • Chassis does not really have suspension
  • Double seat attaching (1 attachment part for each direction) - it's unmarked, so you don't always get it right
  • Canopy slides out (not fixed sturdily to the frame)

It worked, but despite excellent reviews, it did not impress. I bought it pre-owned already.

  • Folding of the frame
  • Material
  • Large cot
  • Easy reclining of the seat
  • Wheels
  • Loosening of the frame
  • Cot without a sun visor
  • Thin fabric on the seat part

I had the older version, I liked the folding and the material. The carrycot was big enough, I missed a sun visor, so I bought a universal one. The pushchair part was quite thin from my point of view - I had an insert sewn into the sports section to make it a bit softer.

With the newer versions, you can see that they have progressed and it is more comfortable. Overall I was happy, but it is true that it does get quite loose.

  • Deep bassinet
  • Adjustable bassinet
  • Easy folding
  • Design
  • Wheels
  • The frame gets loose, wobbly
  • Insect net

I'm quite satisfied, I bought it recently. The overall impression is good. I appreciate the reclining bassinet and the fact that it is deep. No problem with folding. The only negative thing it has is that it really gets loose...

For me, only the seat is usable

  • large basket
  • good storage
  • one of the lighter ones
  • the seat can be clicked on in both directions
  • design
  • handling on a flat road
  • no suspension
  • quick to get loose
  • small bassinet
  • front wheels rattle
  • suitable for really short people - I stumble over it
  • handling in moderate terrain - I haven't even tried a worse one

I inherited this stroller, so I'm glad I have something more compact - but I wouldn't have bought it myself. The stroller is not cushioned, which is not good for the baby. It handles very well on a straight road, but all it takes is a crack in the pavement and you have a problem. I was also bothered by the fairly low handle, and I used to trip over the stroller (I am average height - 172 cm - so the stroller is probably for really short moms).

I like the overall workmanship, the materials used and the large basket. But the stroller is quite rickety and the front wheels rattle. We didn't use the bassinet because it's really small for us (we got the stroller when my son was 3 months old and it was already tight) - and most of all, I would be afraid to shake the baby that much! It has the advantage that the canopy is super nicely shading.

For me, though, only the seat is usable. The seat is passable, but to be a full-fledged pushchair, the seat would have to be on a different chassis... The stroller is pretty good as a buggy for shopping, for shorter routes and for groomed pavements (if there are such somewhere in our country :-D :-D :-D), it folds great in the car, but I definitely think it's better to have a good pushchair and a buggy to than to buy this one.

I felt sorry for my son

  • lightweight
  • compact
  • faces both forward and rearward
  • large shopping basket
  • looks beautiful
  • not comfortable for my child, too small

It is an urban stroller, or better yet a shopping stroller. For the mall it's a blast - narrow, goes everywhere, one-handed operation. Looks nice. Huge basket with 5 kg capacity is great too. Peg Perego also has built-in bag handles meaning no hooks for the dryer, which is great... but a big disappointment for me when I put my 9 month old son in the pushchair in his overalls and footmuff and found he was squashed in like a sardine. I also had to strap him in somehow, because otherwise he was slipping down with the footmuff... I can't imagine having him in there till he's 2, let alone 3. I only had it for a little while, it was great for me as a parent (although I like to go into the woods and it wouldn't work with this), but I felt sorry for my son :-)
