Peg-Pérego Selfie

The selfies-ready, style-oriented ultracompact
see 2 parent reviews

The Peg-Pérego Selfie is a stylish, metal-accented ultra-compact stroller with the auto-fold function. Not only looking good, being lightweight, and compact for some airlines to accept it on board as a hand-luggage, the PP Selfie only needs to activate the folding mechanism to fold down by itself and self-stand when folded. You can easily carry the folded buggy by the child's belly bar.

The world-facing seat features a full (backrest and leg rest) recline as well as an extendable UPF50+ protecting canopy. There's also a relatively large basket for the type, and the frame features an all-wheel suspension. Paired with the Primo Viaggio 4-35 infant car seat line, the pushchair is travel-system ready and occasional newborn-use ready.

Parent reviews of the Peg-Pérego Selfie

if you own(ed) it, own it ;-)
parents say thx^^

Pretty much overpriced

  • Lightweight
  • Nice designs for the hood fabric
  • Very easy fold/unfold
  • Large, extendable hood
  • Small - takes up little space in the car
  • The seat can be laid down completely
  • Flimsy hood
  • Unstable chassis
  • Many plastic parts
  • Noisy wheels
  • Way too pricey for the quality
  • No accessories at all (no raincover, carrybag, foot cover or drink holder that other brands have)
  • The seat is not completely upright in the upright position

Typical Italian: nice design - the jaguar hood looks super cool :), but the overall quality is questionable: unstable chassis, noisy wheels- from the very beginning, even on an even terrain, too many plastic parts prone to breakages - doesn’t seem durable at all. Pretty much overpriced.

A nice push for the money


Loving the style as well as the fold. The downsides are mainly in the not-too-durable canopy and the seat that doesn't go up 90 degrees, so my son always tries to sit up more straight latching onto the bumper bar. Anyway, a nice push for the money.

Your questions about the Peg-Pérego Selfie


I have a Peg Perego Selfie - Onyx stroller. I am looking if there is an adapter I can use that is compatible with my Maxi Cosi Mico Max car seat with the stroller.

Hey, Jhessica,

Unfortunately, as far as I know, there is not Maxi-Cosi adapter, only Peg-Pérego car seats fit on this.

I already own the Agio by Peg Perego Primo Viaggio 4-35 Lounge Reclining Infant Car Seat for by Z4 stroller.

I am looking to travel and specifically on an airline. I was thinking the Selfie may be a good choice if bringing my Peg Preggo carseat because it would click in with an adapter but not sure if it would fit in the airline.

Also, was debating the Selfie vs. Joolz Aer (which I believe those 2 are not car seat compatible?). Not sure on advice which is better?

Thank you!

Heya, Ashley,

If you want to use Peg-Pérego car seat with your ultra-compact, you will only have to go for the Selfie, as the other two only offer adapters for Maxi-Cosi/Cybex style attachment system of car seats. The Selfie is a tad larger, especially with the bumper bar, but many airlines should accept it as cabin luggage with the bumper bar removed.

From the other options, the Joolz Aer would actually be a better, higher quality option from my experience - more spacious, sturdier, and has really nice suspension for such small wheels. You will have to use it with a different car seta, though.

The Yoyo is too short in the backrest area, and also very slanted for my own personal taste. I would not pay the money for it, but that is of course my subjective experience.

Which stroller is better, the Selfie or Leclerc Magicfold Plus? I wonder if one of them feels sturdier than the other or better quality. Is the folding similarly simple with Selfie as Magicfold plus? Is the sitting position more upright in Leclerc? I cannot check them in person, only order online. Thanks!

Heya, Viki,

Both are rather small, so they won't be super sturdy. Other than that, the Selfie is a little better built simply because it has more bars and a thicker rear bar, meaning less looseness over time. The upright angle is very similar, not too much of a difference there - maybe the only difference is that the Selfie has a bit more space for a larger child. The folding system is also very similar - you activate the buttons on the handle and "throw" the handle forward, and the strollers fold by themselves.

Hi how is the Selfie stroller compared to the Silver Cross Jet 3?
Thank you

Hiya, Ra’eesa,

These are two similar strollers, so you have to expect not much all-terrain capability, a smaller seat, limited functionality, and definitely a small, compact stroller for occasional use and travels. Both are also quite slanted in the seat back area, so not upright. Both have modern buckles and overall ŕather fancy details, though the Jet 3 still folds with much more points and joints, meaning over time it will most probably be rickets, loose, and mightdevelop looseness to folding problems if folded very very often and over time too strained.

My personal choice would, therefore, be the Selfie - simply because of the a bit sturdier chassis with a technically more sturdy folding system, but the performance overall will be similar with these strollers.

Can it be taken on an airplane as a carry-on?

Hiya, Alessia,

With the folded dimensions of 62 cm x 51.5 cm x 41 cm, it is a bit larger than the normal cabin luggage size. Perhaps without the bumper bar and/or wheels, OR with some airlines, it could, but itmay be it will not be accepted - the best is to check with your airline.

Is the handlebar adjustable?

Can we still fold without the bumper bar if we plan to take it out as baby gets older?

What degree is the upright position of the Selfie?

Hi thee,

The handle is fixed at about 106 cm, it is not adjustable.

You CAN fold the stroller without the bumper bar, so that will be a yes, no problem there.

Th upright position is not very upright, it is around 120 degrees, so quite slanted.

How to adjust foot rest? I cannot fold the foot rest.


I believe you mean the leg rest, the adjustable thing for your baby's legs, don't you:

There are TWO little levers on the sides of the leg rest which you need to push and then move the legrest down (or up, but up goes even without pushing). The same thing should also be n your stroller manual which I recommend keeping and consulting.

Here's a video (check about 1:12 where the lady adjusts the leg rest) to help you out, too:

When the handle bar (baby in seat) is pushed forward is it supposed to make a clicking sound?

Hi, Mandy,

Well, no, it shouldn't, in theory. I am not exactly sure what, why, when does it happen. Is it a loud sound, just a little squeak, does it do any other discomfort or problems..? I suggest making a video of what you mean, upload it on youtube, and, ideally, ask the seller - he might just take you up on a warranty if it IS a problem, or comfort you by telling it's ok and you only need to clean it, for example.

In any case, it's super hard to give advice like this, when one doesn't know the problem, but I would take it to the seller or to Peg-Pérego's customer service.

What child tray could be attached to the selfie?

Hi, Erica,

There's no tray available for the Peg-Pérego Selfie buggy, sorry. It only comes with a bumper bar, which is already quite a plus for an ultracompact stroller.

Hi there, would you recommend this stroller? How does it compare to the YoYo (Baby Zen)?


The Selfie from Peg-Pérego brand is a very stylish - to me, a more stylish pushchair, compared to the Babyzen Yoyo. It has multiple advantages in my eyes, the first being the price point. Then, the seat - it is a larger = wider, more roomy, and longer seat unit that is still quite slanted (the Yoyo is not an upright seat at all; it is actually very slanted and quite short in the seatback area), but the Selfie being, for sure, a bit less slanted overall. Next, the bumper bar is included and gate-opening; the child has a bit more support. The basket on the Selfie is also a bit more spacious, and the seat reclines fully, which is an advantage over the Yoyo. The last and most cool thing is the auto-fold - the Selfie only needs activating the fold, and the buggy will fold by itself, while the Yoyo needs two hands to be folded.

To the negatives: the canopy of the Selfie is very open still and feels a bit thinner. The Selfie is a bit larger after folding; might be some airlines won't take it on board as a carry-on. And, at last, the quality of the Yoyo is very high, durability-wise. The Yoyo's sturdy chassis, durable fabrics, and good wheels with a bit of suspension are much better compared to the Selfie, and the Selfie will be most certainly be a bit more of a "rattle" on bad terrain. Plus, the rear axle on the Selfie might be in the way of tall parent's steps. Aaand the Selfie doesn't offer a from-birth bassinet or cocoon possibility.

Just weigh the priorities when picking the right stroller for you, the terrain, the price importance, and go with your heart. Which do you feel better about? I would recommend the Selfie if price and looks are important to you and you don't need it for bad terrain (and canopy sturdiness is not that big of a deal). If aiming for high quality, small cabin luggage size, and easier sellability, later on, the Yoyo (or something like a Joolz Aer) might be a better option for you.
