2 years on and it's still run as new
I bought this pram as a recommendation from a friend and also missus loves it. The one thing that attract me is the way the pram handle can be altered to forward facing or back facing. This function is really good if you have a newborn and would like to see their cutie little face all the time and later on as they grow older you can alter the handle so it will back facing where they can see the amazing world we currently live in. The pram can be a bit heavy for you to lift it so be careful when you lift it, other than that everything is ok. We got it for $350 from Baby expo which is a good price. As our child grow older we will keep this one for our next since we are happy with it.
I bought a peg perego stroller/pram for my 2 yr old granddaughter. I love the fact that the handle is reversible, and once you get used to using it both ways it's great. It turns really well on the little wheels, so when you reverse the handle you have to get used to turning it with the pressure more on the back wheels(small wheels). It is a larger stroller with a drink tray for the little one to put her drink and snacks on, but she plays with her dolls on it so it serves a good purpose. It supports my granddaughter well, and lies flat when...she is asleep, her legs hang over a little bit, but not that it makes her uncomfortable as like the previous stroller I had for her. The hood covers her fully when she is asleep. It's easy to fold up once you get the knack, and takes up quite a bit of boot space, so if you have a small car - maybe not a good choice for you. I love the stroller, and when my daughter has her new baby in January I will be able to use it as a full pram for the new born...it's awesome and I love it. Peg perego us a great brand. Large enough girl my granddaughter, easy to push and gold A bit on the big side for the car boot.
Dangerous, should be taken off the market.
This is not a cheap pram and while the materials are good quality - with the exception of the wheels (which are soft plastic and were completely trashed after one outing), it is beyond awkward to steer when the baby is facing you. Flip the handle to the other side, however, and the small front wheels will become stuck in any small dent in the ground and the entire pram will overbalance and tip forward meaning your child will fall face first into the ground and you will be injured by the sudden flip up of the undercarriage. I paid around $700 fo...r this pram in "gala" print. When i picked it up from the baby bunting warehouse, the guy looked at the price and told me i was a "galah" for purchasing it. He was absolutely right. Far and away the worst product i have ever purchased. Hard wearing material, relatively easy to fold down, generous storage space underneath seat, sunshade provides good cover. Unsafe, difficult to steer, heavy, need a screwdriver to remove lining to wash.
This pram is terrible! It is flimsy, the hand brake broke after like a month, the hood bends out of shape easily in the boot so it looks very lop sided. It is horrible to push, the front wheels spin around and get stuck so when you push you can't go anywhere, this was especially frustrating on a recent trip to the city. This pram was almost dangerous trying to catch a train or use the escalator because of the front wheels getting stuck. Horrible.
Storage basket relatively big.
Expensive, flimsy, front wheels make it hard to push as they swivel the wrong way and the pram won't move.
We had the predecessor of the Peg UNO 14 years ago for our eldest child and loved that it was lightweight for it's size (not the lightest pram on the market, but for a well cushioned pram that has an enclosed basinet position it is very light), had a good sized canopy, reversible handles and other features so I was keen to find a newer model when we had another baby last year.
We discovered the UNO, and after looking at other options on the market, purchased it. I've read many of the other reviews and would like to answer some of the negati...ve comments about it: 1) Many complain it is expensive, I disagree, we paid $350 for ours (brand new from Toys R Us) and although I believe the recommended retail price is close to $800, I have never seen it sold for that in any baby stores I've been in. If you are considering this pram, shop around, you can get it for well under $500. Many other prams with cosy basinets that are suitable for toddlers and beyond need a separate basinet and toddler seat purchase adding to the cost. 2) I've read some find it difficult to use. Specifically, steering when the handle is in the reverse position (because in that position the swivel wheels are in the rear). I found this super easy to get used to and in 6 months of use...no accidents caused by steering difficulties.
Was given this pram and absolutely hate it, it's unstable, flimsy, terrible with uneven floor surfaces, brake gets stuck when it is released, and has even tipped over with capsule and baby in it! Looking to replace it ASAP! And would not recommend it to any one! Worst pram ever
Tipped over, flimsy, unstable
I've had my UNO for 2.5 years, I've loved it from day one and still love it now. Super quick and easy to fold, easy to push, love the 3 levels of reclining, don't find the upright too upright. Fits through small places easy, checkout aisles are generally no problem. We've spent a lot of time in hospital and this has been fantastic- we can load it up and carry all our things in, I can do it alone.
Cannot say enough good things about this pram! I researched very thoroughly before purchasing and have not regretted it for one minute. Friends I kno...
Wouldn't buy it again
I wanted a stroller I could use for a newborn and face them. This does that, but as others have said, it's a pain to steer in this position, and impossible to go down escalators and on/off trains (always had to move handle to other direction). It's awkward to change the handle direction when the boot cover is on as the cover gets in the way. As bub got older, I liked this less and less (bub is now 8 months old and I don't use it any more). It only has 3 different recline levels, flat, nearly flat, and bolt upright. When inclined, the seat ...part is flat, rather than tilted back and so bub slides down the pram ending up slumped with his chin on his chest. He's not a big baby but when I used it recently with his coat on, he could barely fit his arms by his side. The basket is large and can fit loads into it, but has sagged with only a little use and now drags lower. The cup holder isn't wide enough to take a steel drinking bottle. On a positive note, the hood got marked in the car but cleaned up nicely. It looked great in the shop and being a first time mum, I didn't really know what would be 'needed' in a buggy. I have since bought a Maclaren Quest for a trip overseas. Bub loves it so much that we no longer use the Peg. Thought it was expensive for what you get, especially when you consider that the Peg car capsule is over $400 and given the short amount of time you face bub for, I wouldn't pick this again. Big basket, cleans up well, easy to adjust seat incline up and down with one hand. Lack of seating positions/uncomfortable seated positioning, awkward to steer, difficulty using escalators, stairs etc in rear facing position.
Perfect! Just what I needed and wanted!
I love all the features of this amazing pram! Finally someone has thought of it all! Where do I start - it's got a reverse handle so you can see you baby or face your toddler out to the world, or keep the sun out of their eyes; it's got a huge hood/canopy that pulls right down to the front bar to keep the light out to let them sleep; big shopping basket you can get to with the pop up access even when the pram is fully reclined; it can be a stroller or basinet; cup holders; fits the Peg Perego capsule which is a life saver for quick trips in and...out of the car. Easy to clean, very compact, easy to fold, the list goes on! I love it! Everything, great value for money, easy to use, practical and covers every eventuality! a bit tricky to attach the capsule the first time, but after reading the instructions again it was very simple!
Very comfy for bubs! Changable to Pram, Stroller or Bassinett. Easy to steer, very big under basket. Bubs loves it and falls asleep in the comfy padding. suitable from birth. Massive sun cover that goes all the way down. Fits universal rain cover and mosquito nets. great colour as does not show stains or marks, Easily cleaned.
Suited my needs
I purchased this pram because it was the best on the market for what i wanted.
Features i liked :-
Lays flat so can be used from newborn and up
Reversible handle so you can face your baby
Generous basket underneath
Drink tray/food tray
1 single large wheel at rear on both sides (no more clipping feet on the wheels)
there better out there
its light weight which is what im looking for, not a bad pram, reversible which is good, its good for winter, keep baby warm and comfy... but its hard to stir
baby looks confy and great for winter
expensive, not worth the money and hard to stir, front wheel doest not stir well
I use this as my main stroller from full days out shopping through to days at the park. It pushes lovely. On long days out my 3 year old hitches a ride on the step. Easy to fold, the steps are written on the stroller and stands when folded so you don't have to lay it on the dirty ground. The handles move to allow rear facing. It has a generous seat size, my 3 year old fits with room to grow. I really like this stroller and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to someone lokking for an all round stroller.
Easy to steer, big basket, toddler can...
Worst pram for the money
I have nothing but trouble. The pram wouldn't sterr properly. The wheel kept falling off and the baring is missing on the wheel. All I want is to get a new baring but there is no proper contacts in Australia. The brake cord keeps coming away from the pram.
The straps are only conect to the pram by a little hook and they come away from the pram.
For the money I wish I had bought a cheaper pram!
It lays down flat so baby can sleep and the handle swings over. Light weight.
Bad Peg Perego service and spare parts
I would not recommend this product. Which is a shame because it could be great if only they would attach the small wheels with metal casing and perhaps change to a different rubber or air-pump tyres. Oh yes and throw in the rain cover!
Lightweight. Folds small for its size. Looks great. Use from birth to toddler as it goes from carriage style to stroller style. Comfortable seat. One touch brake is excellent - unlike other reviewers ours still works great after 5 months of everyday use (touch wood!).
Expensive, lucky we got ours as floor stock f...
Don't buy this pram! Buy a small pram, you may thing you need a big pram, but small is good. I am regretful that I sold my p3 pliko to buy this dud.
Easy to push
Baby to toddler suitable
Faulty brake (need to be sent back to get repaired along with many others)
The hood clips don't clip (always falling off)
The huge basket under pram is not able to hold capacity of stuff without breaking
Hood breaks / bends
Labels peel off insert and outside of pram ...
A cool looking pram that covers all the features I was looking for- one piece fold, light, trendy, reversible handles. These criteria combined are hard to fulfill but peg per ego UNO has mastered it.
One piece fold, lightweight, cool colours, cost for newborn and roomy, reversible handles, easy to fold and unfold, value for money,
A bit difficult to steer when forward facing, but nothing worth complaining about.
Bought new in March 2010. 1st used in July after my wife gave birth to our baby in late May. First issue was noise on the wheel. Called the baby retail shop to get a job repair number. Took the Pram to local repair shop, they looked at the pram, they told us they had to order the spring. We went back the 2nd time after a week, left the pram for 3 hours and got it back.
My baby was 7 months when we discovered that the right brake was slipping off backward when in elevation. Got the job number again, took the pram to the local repair sho...p and was told they have to order the brake. They recommended to use foot brake. Not knowing that I was recommended with the older feature I said yes. Waited for 2 weeks and I got no call from the local repairers, I called them only to find out they had received the wrong parts. Not very happy, I called the distributor and was told they are going to send the correct parts using overnight shipment. I did requested the distributor to send the original hand brake replacement. Waited for a week but was told by local repairer that they still have the wrong parts. Call the distributor again and was promised they will send the correct hand brake using another over night delivery. Now on the forth week, I called up local repaired to find out if they have received the handbrake, but was told they have not received it. So I called the distributor again and demanded a different repaired or replacement. First request is not possible because there is ONLY ONE repaired in my area. Demand the replacement as I do not want to risk injuring my baby, was told the supervisor is on holiday. Told the rep there must me more than 1 person in the organisation that can make a decision, was told the manager is ALSO on HOLIDAY. What a COINCIDENCE!!
I really like this pram. It's practical and stylish. I can be used from newborn through to an older child. The fold is fairly compact allowing me to fit other things on the car boot. I steers well indoors and outdoors. I think this is a great all round pram and would recommend it
Light, easy to steer, easy to fold and unfold, well padded seat, reverse handle, huge basket and fantastic hood - great sun coverage.
Takes a little while to get used to pushing in reverse position but when you do it's quite easy.
It has alot of good points, but I do not think that it is a safe pram. The harness comes away too easily from the seat. If this were rectified, it would be great, but I can't recommend it.
Easy to steer, can unfold with one hand. Handbrake is very conveniently located on the handle meaning that you use it all the time. It has a very large basket and isn't too wide, it can fit through checkouts. The handle is reversible with a simple click and push, you don't have to reverse the seat. The capsule just clicks into the seat, you don't have to take...
