Family gateway – D-1 at the happiest place on earth: All about the stroller!
The question was, to bring or not to bring a stroller? I and my husband want to travel light. After all his main concern was we are traveling with 3 kids and although we brought along a nanny with us, still we are going to hold 3 kids. An independent seven years old who feels like he knows everything and 2 curious little bunnies who tends to check out everything and anything. My husband said we can just rent a stroller at Disney and for me, I want to bring our dependable stroller with us. My point is why rent when we can actually save and use our own. In the end, we compromised with bringing 1 stroller with us. Our dependable Peg Perego Pliko Mini.
If you have been following me since Saffron, you would know that I have this love affair with my stroller. It was love at first sight for us. hahaha! If you have been following me since the twins, chances are you’ve seen the strollers too. If you just followed me recently this post is for you — So why do I love our Peg Perego Pliko Mini?
- It’s lightweight. – This compact, light pushchair (5.7 kg) can be folded with one hand (no need to bend!), hello #TitasofManila.
- It can stand on its own. – yes this, sold me when it was demonstrated to us before. I hate seeing strollers lying on the floor and since my husband is germ phobic, we love how Pliko Mini ensures perfect hygiene because the fabric never touches the ground.
- It does not tilt over – What do I mean? I saw some strollers that when you remove the kid from the chair, and you happen to hang your bag at the back the whole stroller tilts over because it has no counterweight.
5. The Ferrari of all Strollers – Yes! Peg Perego strollers are made in ITALY. Not designed in Italy and assembled in China. NO!!! It’s made in Italy, designed in ITALY. The great all-Italian quality of Peg Perego products can be seen in the details. What details? The wide seat, 3-position reclining backrest, and the 2-position adjustable footrest ensure a comfortable ride.The adjustable ergonomic handles allow people of different heights to walk comfortably while pushing. A large, practical storage basket is the finishing touch. Once folded it can be carried like a trolley case by its centralized rear handle.The height-adjustable, 5-point safety harness, the suspension wheels (lockable or swivel at the front, fixed with a centralized brake at the rear) ensure utmost safety.
6. The Disney stroller is very expensive to rent and it’s rock solid too… Brie/ Bleu had a hard time napping while on it. I hope they would just change it to something that can be reclined.
Breakdown: $120.00 per stroller I need 2 so that $240.00 + $200.00 deposit x 2 since we are going to Disney for 2 days. So that’s = $480.00 for 2 days minus the deposit. In pesos 3,60 for stroller rentals down the drain. yikes! Now, do you believe me when I say that you should bring our own stroller? Its practical and saves you money for food, costumes, mommy funds and souvenirs? =)
Did I just say save on souvenirs funds? —- I’ll let you know more about this on my 3rd post. Thanks for reading. =)
