  1. 2nd times a charm on February 5th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I have only tried this stroller in the store but have put it on my registry. I am 4’11” tall and had a hard time finding a stroller that was easy to open and close with one hand, wasn’t as big as me and was easy to maneuver. THIS IS IT! It is only 9 pounds as opposed to all other strollers that were 20+ pounds. It folds up with one hand and opens with one hand. The carseat is sold separately, but if you are like me and will be using your stroller everyday, it is worth the extra money for the convenience. The basket underneath is fully accessible even with the back laying down and the carseat inside.

    When looking for lightweight strollers for our 14 month old daughter, we came across this one. We loved it from the beginning. It’s sleek and stylish, and we liked it more than any of the others we tried, so we bought it. It rides smoothly (not quite as smooth as our Graco, though), the canopy is nice and big and almost completely shields the sun from my daughter’s face, and it reclines pretty far. We love the freedom straps. My daughter can sit up straight and look around while still being strapped in a 5-point harness. It is kind of hard to open and close, though, but it may be because it is new. And the parent cupholder is kind of a joke. We are returning this stroller, but only because it does not fold up small enough for us. This one is only a little bit smaller than our bulky Graco, and we’re really looking for something that folds smaller and takes up less trunk space. This is a great stroller all in all.

    Don’t be put off by the price of this stroller. IT IS WORTH IT!

    We bought this mainly to go to Disney World with, and to replace our huge Graco stroller.

    This stroller has a large basket for a lightweight stroller. I can a medium sized diaper bag plus a backpack purse in it. It also has a reclining seat, two child cup holders with snack track in between, and a parent cup holder. The canopy goes lower than most, and covers my daughter EXTREMELY well, which is exciting for that Florida sun!

    We have owned many strollers because we could never find the right one. But now we have, this one is just PERFECT! It is the only stroller we have owned where our daughter’s cups actually fit completely inside the cup holders. Oh, and it only weighs about 9 pounds, folds very compactly and is self standing when folded! It also has a carrying handle on one side. This thing is fantastic!

    I was so excited when we bought this stroller. Tried it in the store and it seemed to be awesome. The best thing about it is the way it folds and unflods. I could do it with one hand and carried my three month old in the other.
    Baby did look comfy in it.
    For me, the deal breaker in this stroller was that it wouldn’t move in the snow. The front wheels got stuck and i would have to end up carrying it over the snow.
    It’s also a bumpy ride on the sidewalks. I ended up returning it. I wish this stroller would work well in the snow.

    I have old Peg Perego Milano, which very nice, but big and heavy. For me, Aria is great lightweight version of Milano.

  6. gang on March 25th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    This is a great stroller, love the color, the wheels are easy to maneuver, BUT this should be considered a medium lightweight stroller(if there is any!) since I am only 82 lbs and 5’2 this is a li’l bit bulky and this one hand fold is difficult to do also my husband had difficulty doing it.

  7. mom of 2 on April 21st, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I bought my first Aria 4 years ago when my son was born. We used this stroller all the time, inside and outside. It has been on MANY trips and it stood the test of time. I bought my second one when my daughter was born last year. I wanted a New stroller for my second child. I looked at many other strollers but none were the Aria so I bought it AGAIN!! I have been using the second one for about 6 months and still love it.
    -Easy to fold and unfold
    -nice size basket
    -seat reclines
    -cup holders
    -easy to push, rides nice
    -easy to turn
    -good shade

  9. No more Prego for this mom on June 2nd, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I tried this stroller in the store and did a fair amount of research. I have been extremely disappointed with my decision to buy this piece of junk! It handles horribly. The wheels get stuck or "lock up" all the time. The canopy does a miserable job of staying on…and being a canopy! Parts continue to pop off and whatever you do, don’t fall for the "cup holder". Doesn’t hold much of anything, not to mention it can barley hold on to the stroller.

  10. Busy mama on June 8th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    This stroller is just the right size for my small car. It is lightweight, very easy to take in and out of the car. Storage underneath is just right. Sofar I used it once with my newborn. My sister gave me her Peg Perego car seat and it works great with this stroller. My 12 days old baby boy seem to love it! I can’t wait for him to enjoy the full ride in this stroller with its stylish canopy shades.

  11. Happy Mommy on June 8th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I wish I had found this stroller from the beginning. I had travel system and it was too bulky and too heavy for me. I’m 5ft-2in and I get frustrated a lot getting that stroller in and out of my car trunk. Until I found Peg-Perego Aria stroller, it’s only 9 lbs. Although it’s a lightweight stroller, the baby seat is quite big, comfy and the basket is big enough comparing to other kinds. It’s very practical and handy especially when flying, traveling on a road or going on a trip to Disney. I also love the fact that there is a tray in the front for my baby to hold and put her snacks on (not many lightweight strollers have). The canopy is big and adjustable. It’s very easy to assamble too… I did it all by my self in minutes. All you have to do is to put the canopy and the wheels on. My baby is now 15 months and she loves it. I wish I had this stroller since she was born.

  12. Iowa Mom of two on June 28th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    This stroller is exactly what we needed! I was sick of lugging around my behemoth of a stroller that came with my daughter’s infant car seat, but didn’t like using an umbrella stroller that had no amenities besides 4 wheels, either. I also wanted something that would last as long as my 16 month old needed it. She’s at the top end of the growth chart, as was her older sister, and I remember having a terrible time pushing her in a stroller once she was about three years old because of her size/height. I researched a lot of different lightweight strollers, and this one fits the bill. It has an adequate basket, snack/drink tray for baby, a reclining seat, and a huge sunshade. The stroller folds fairly easily, but folds forward instead of back like other strollers I’ve owned. It maneuvers very easily, but you should be aware that the front wheels can be locked in place or allowed to swivel–the swivel position makes it a dream to push. I’m assuming many of the negative reviews about how this stroller pushes are because the front wheels were locked in place. I tested the stroller further by having my now almost 7 year old, who is 50+ pounds sit in it and letting me push her. It pushed very easily despite her being well too tall and over the weight limit. This stroller will accept a car seat, and it ONLY WEIGHS 10 POUNDS! If I knew how awesome this was, I would have bought this stroller and the matching car seat to begin with. Don’t waste your money on a giant travel system you’ll hate to use. Spend the extra money and buy this one stroller you can use until you no longer need a stroller!!!

    Very nice esign, perfect to use: stroller not heavy,works good. Can be used from new born and oldest baby.

  14. Jill mother of two on July 18th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    This stroller is amazing! I love how lightweight it is (great for my back problems). We used it everyday….all day (live in a fifth floor condo). The infant seat snaps in easily and securely. Great for vacations. Stows easily, lightweight for maneuvering the airport & Disney! After 3 years of EXTREMELY heavy use….I am purchasing a new one for my second child.

  15. Mommyof two on July 21st, 2009 at 12:00 am

    We needed a ligthweight stroller for quick trips for one child when we’re not using our double stroller. By far, this is the BEST stroller out their for a lightweight stroller with theamenities of a normal size stroller. I would recommened this everyone. It took less than 5 minutes to pop the wheels andhood on. You can’t find a hood like this one anywhere else in other lightweight stroller..Its so BIG that it covers my 2 yr old from the sun completely. Best of all i can also fit my gracocar seat in the stroller when only taking my infant with me. The recline is aweosme.It reclines almost flat. Overall, A must have!!!

  16. stroller enthusiast on July 23rd, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I researched lightweight strollers for days and am very happy with my decision to buy the Aria. The best features are:

    *less than 10 pounds
    *moves smoothly
    *can be pushed effortlessly with one hand
    *child’s tray with cup holder and raised edges for snacks
    *large basket
    *reclining seat (not completely flat so not good for newborns)
    *holds my backpack diaper bag on the handle without tipping the stroller (even when the bag is jam-packed and the baby is not in the seat)
    *fabulous one-hand fold (takes a practice try or two)
    *folds compactly (handle lowers; stroller becomes shorter)
    *free-standing when folded

    It left plenty of room in our vehicle for the luggage of 2 adults and 2 older brothers.

  17. Jenn on July 24th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I spent well over an hour trying every stroller in the store, had looked online at reviews, etc.
    I wanted an umbrella stroller that was sturdy, and overall this had most of the features I was looking for. The canopy provides a LOT of sun coverage, more than most. Snack tray and cup holders for the baby, which many of the high end umbrellas did NOT have, good sized basket underneath, very lightweight, maneuvers wonderfully..very smooth, RECLINES PRETTY MUCH ALL THE WAY BACK (again which many of the other highends did not do), relatively comfortable material for the baby (some others had rough fabric). The harness system is great, 5 point but offers more movement than a typical 5 point harness. My baby is 8 mos and I am able to use just the waist straps as well at times.
    PROBLEMS – The adult cup holder was a HUGE ‘want’ for me, and this says it comes with one. Okay if you’re not moving, but it is not sturdy, falls off everytime you fold up the stroller (easy to lose). I purchased an iced coffee that did fit in the holder, and not 10 seconds later it fell out and emptied on the ground…tragic as most moms know 🙂 But…most of the other strollers did not have this feature at all, so better than nothing and okay for a smaller cold drink when you’re stationary.
    ALSO, the one handed folding feature isn’t quite as easy as described. Sometimes I do need 2 hands, there is a handle and a button for some reason, and it’s hard to press both at the same time and fold up the carriage w/just one hand.
    But the stroller is 9 lbs. I think? VERY light.
    ALSO, doesn’t fold up as small as an umbrella stroller, but this hasn’t been a big issue for me.
    Was VERY easy to put together, some very minor assembly, took minutes.
    Looks high end, I’ve gotten many compliments and the baby did nap well in it…big plus.
    I would highly recommend this stroller over the other even pricer models.
    Could use a pocket in back for adult belongings, wallet, etc.

  18. Deven's Mom on July 25th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I just used this stroller for the first time since I purchased it a few days ago I bought it bc my graco’s wheels were all messed up wobbling ect. and it was only a year and a half old so instead of fixing it we purchased this …it is amazing, the ride is smooth, very lightweight(i can carry it w one hand and hold my son’s hand with the other), nice size storage basket,and my son loves the canopy.The only thing I did not really like was that it doesn’t have a parent tray but I will get used to that I wish Peg Perego sold them though…This stroller will be my go to for many years.

  19. Leo's Mom on August 14th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    The stroller is very light and comfortable, especially when placing it on the trunk of the car. My baby does not sweat due to the fabric.
    The only thing is not that easy to fold and unfold… but once you get use to it, it’s a smooth ride.

  20. Dad looking for the best on August 22nd, 2009 at 12:00 am

    This stroller came out on top of my in-store try-outs a few weeks back. The things I was looking for in order of importance were:

    Ease of folding
    Upright sitting for baby
    Construction and feel
    Baby tray

    The only other stroller in consideration was the McLaren Triumph.

    What ultimately sealed the deal for the Peg Perego was the stow design. My wife has MD and she really liked how the stroller folded up in an upright position. She strolled our daughter around in the store and liked the feel of it. One thing I’d like to add, was the canopy for this stroller is very nice. You can open it like any other stroller for shade, but you can open it to the second position to just about cover the whole front of the stroller. This is great if your baby has fallen asleep…

    The adult cup holder is not the best, but I knew this going in by doing my research.

  21. Sofi's Mom on August 23rd, 2009 at 12:00 am

    After 9 months of lugging my huge Graco travel system stroller around, I decided it was time to get a lightweight stroller for my daughter. I was looking for a stroller with a large canopy to shield her from the hot Texas sun, so I narrowed the choices down to the Peg Perego Aria stroller and the Joovy Kooper. When I went to BRU to test them out,the Kooper’s rear wheel fell off while I was testing it out. Checked that one off my list…
    What I liked about the Aria stroller is its lightness, easy maneuverability, and its removable snack tray/drink holder (this is absolutely crucial for my daughter to have). I think the 5-point freedom movement harness sets the Aria apart from other lightweight strollers, which lets my daughter move around safely in her seat instead of restraining her to the back of the seat. The fabric is nice and keeps my daughter cool during the hot summer days. It has a large storage basket underneath, which is almost as large as full-size strollers. The only issue I have is with its one-handed folding feature. To open the stroller, you need to push two buttons on the handle down, and they’re placed awkwardly on the handle so it’s somewhat tough to push them down at the same time. But once you manage to get the hang of it, opening/folding the stroller is very easy.
    Overall, I’m very happy with this stroller. It has a lot of features found in full-size strollers but it only weighs 9 lbs. I would definitely recommend this product.

  22. SS on August 25th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I bought this when my daughter was about 6-7 months old (actually have an older version, 2006 one, which is not a OH fold, but still works perfect). She loves it, it reclines almost 150 degrees. The basket is good size, has cupholder. It can even accomodate infant carseats, so can be actually used as a travel system (I hate those heavy bulky strollers that come with the regular travel system). Infact I am having my second one and we are buying a graco snugride and we’ll buy another peg perego aria. I tried the snugride and it actually latches on the aria. Perfect. Will just buy a universal carseat adapter and it will be as secure as it can be. It is very light weight, folds upright (which I love) and is very sturdy. I would recommend it to everyone.
