Peg-Pérego Pliko Switch

see 1 parent review

The Peg-Pérego Pliko Switch (also known as the Switch Easy Drive in its latest editions) is a variation of the Pliko P3 with a reversible seat. This stroller is a predecessor of the newer Switch Four with four streamlined single wheels (found also on the latest generations of Pliko Switch). The Pliko Switch is a rather robust umbrella stroller that comes with many features of a conventional stroller. The easily maneuverable chassis is equipped with a suspension system and can be folded even with the seat still attached. When folded, the telescopic handlebar enables the stroller to stand independently, so it does not take up much storage space.

The reversible seat can be fully reclined, making the stroller suitable even for smaller children. To provide even more comfort for a newborn, you can pair the seat up with an optional newborn insert or a nest. The Navetta XL carrycot or the optional car seat can be added to the chassis as well. The full modular Pliko Switch Compact On Track stroller system is also available and comes with a changing bag included. There is also an option to purchase only the chassis and create any desired combination with just the parts you need.

parents say thx^^

I love this stroller :)

5
  • Light
  • Roomy
  • Reclinable fully
  • Foldable
  • Large hood

It is lightweight, foldable and can be reversed to face both directions of travel. It has an adjustable backrest - up to full recline, and a large hood. The fabrics are pleasant in terms of material, they do not overheat the stroller unnecessarily in summer. The fastening is nice between the legs, the child does not slip down and out. It can be folded and unfolded easily, and its width fits in smaller doors and lifts without problems, while the child has enough space to sit. I love this stroller :)

Your questions about the Peg-Pérego Pliko Switch

1)

Does this stroller work well on sand? Thanks!

Hi, Royal,

No, sorry, but no. No stroller works well on sand, but the doubled small wheels are even worse. For working on sand, you need larger single wleels, and optimally, an easy way to pull your stroller on the behind wheels (or a two-wheel mode like, e.g., the Bugaboo Fox's). Also, it is important to [[article:ruyunochi|clean your stroller after strolls in sand because it may damage the wheel bearings.

2)

Where on the stroller do I find the model number and year made information? I got the stroller used and need an instruction book, how can I get that?

Hiya, Kathy,

There's usually a sticker with that information on the lower rear axle somewhere. It, however, often gets unglued or scratched down over the years of use of the stroller. If you cannot find it anywhere on the frame, it is most probably gone.

About the stroller instruction book, I am attaching an online manual/instruction book link HERE (or a dowload link for the Peg Perego Switch manual here).
