You might be really lucky enough to be having triplets or you may have a growing family and want a pushchair that is flexible enough for your requirements. Whatever be the case, the new Peg Perego Triplette Triple Tandem Pushchair Java is seriously built for real drivers and turns the chore of transporting three children into a doddle! Head on down the page where you will find a comprehensive review on Triplette Triple Tandem Pushchair Java from Peg Perego. The experience of having reviewed a few Twin Pushchairs/buggies in the past makes it for an interesting study.
The Peg Perego Triplette Pushchair is basically a Tandem pushchair, the details of which we will review as we progress. Now, let us have a quick look at some of the design features of the pushchair. This pushchair undoubtedly is one of the easier models if you want to push the buggy on your own with triplets. It had two major updates; one of which is that it features a new and improved Chassis namely the MARK 2 CHASSIS which you might find it easier to get in and out of the car.
The modified Chassis can also be detached from the seat units and the biggest advantage clearly is the excellent off-road capability that it offers. But as a downside, the chassis is pretty long and does not fit that easily into a standard family car. The second update is the new ball bearing wheels which will be covered under the Wheel system. The fabric is a blend of cotton & polyester and is machine-washable. The pushchair comes with a Java brown colour scheme and brilliant silver accents.
The Peg Perego Triple pushchair as we already know is a tandem type and has three stroller seats placed one in front of the other or simply put it is a triple buggy designed to accommodate triplets or newborns. Apparently, it has three removable Zip-front hoods, which is highly practical. It allows you to throw it on when the air is chill and protects the baby in high winds. You can also unzip and take the hoods down and use them as sunshades when the sun comes out behind the clouds.
There are three detachable weather foot Boots (Apron) that make sure the new borns are just as comfortable. All in all, it gives you the flexibility you need as a parent. As for the construction, it features a corrosion resistant aluminium frame with a clear satin lacquer finish. The lacquer offers a semi-glossy surface and provides an excellent finish to the frame. Weighing in as much as 25 kg, it is fairly heavy and we found it a bit difficult at first to put it together. But guess what? We have it down to a fine art now and can achieve it in under a minute.
Travel System compatible:
The Peg Perego Triplette Tandem pushchair is fully travel system compatible. An automatic attachment system known as the G-Matic ‘one click’ system helps you easily attach or detach the three Giro seat units (Included) and three Primo Viaggio Tri-fix Car seats directly to the chassis of the stroller.
Note that this car seat is sold separately. Ensure your baby is wearing a correctly and adjusted Five-Point safety Seat Belt provided for complete freedom of movement. The Navetta Bassinet Unit is compatible with the stroller and can be securely and instantly attached to the buggy. Do note that it is not included in the pack and has to be bought separately.
The stroller comes with a reversible seat that gives you more flexibility. In that you can change the stroller seat for your baby to face you while you are out together. Further as an extension to this point, the tandem pushchair features forward-facing seats that allow you to face out into the same direction when you are pushing this. Another advantage is that the adjustable seats positions can be operated independently. As your child grows bigger, you may require toddler seats, but the buggy cannot be converted back to toddler seats which is a certain disappointment.
Though the height of the handle is adjustable, the pushchair does not have a reversible handlebar which means that you cannot change between rear and forward facing modes with simply the flip of the handle. The lack of this feature might disturb your baby at times.
The Peg Perego Triplet Stroller Triplette SW makes it easy to steer the front wheels. A practical SW ‘Steering Wheel’ facilitates easy manoeuvrability. We tried adjusting the steering wheel to suit various heights and it did exceedingly well offering a superior grip. This may take some getting used to, but it works great once you get the hang of it. There are 4 large wheels including shock absorber on front wheel which can be adjusted to harder or softer according to your child’s weight. The fixed-steering device aligns the front wheels of the pushchair when required. The foot brakes for the rear wheels are positioned just above the rear and it can be centrally controlled by you.
The stylish 30 cm diameter wheels are fitted with ball bearings which make the pushchair very light to push and manoeuvre, notwithstanding its heavy weight. The 360 degree lockable front swivel with steel ball bearings ensures maximum smoothness and manoeuvrability. The buggy is excellent over all types of terrain including pavements, grass, roads and rough tracks but it is difficult to manoeuvre on sand. Thanks widely to the four large sprung wheels.
When you have to go out under inclement weather, the three raincovers will shield your infants from the elements. It could easily attach to the Peg Perego pushchair and stores rather easily in the handy, spacious carry basket that folds up compactly with the buggy allowing for a convenient commute.
The footrest can adjust itself to three different positions and the backrest could recline completely. These features count a lot when it comes to the ultimate comfort of your baby. The pushchair does not have foot muffs, quite a useful feature for keeping your baby’s feet balmy and comfortable on bitter winter days, and on testing, we found that there is not a lot of side protection for optimum security.
Book Folding System:
The frame features folding system that is similar to opening or closing a book. This unique fold system could eliminate the risk of little fingers getting pinched while you fold and unfold the buggy. The pushchair measures 109cm (H) x 169.5cm (L) x 60cm (W) when opened and folds down itself to a dimension of 44cm (H) x 144cm (L) x 60cm (W).
The manufacturer offers one year warranty on the frame from manufacturing defects with 90 days warranty on the seat upholstery from the date of purchase.
A feature that we are unsure whether the pushchair possesses is the ‘stadium seating’ by which one can place the baby in the rear higher up so that three of the kids can enjoy the view. With steerable chassis for easy manoeuvrability, the seats stack into one another, an indicative of that it does not consume much space than you may think.
But remember the weight will tend to increase as your child grows, so make sure you check its size in folded position. Last but not the least, if you are looking for a durable pram to last your triplets/young family all through to toddlerdom, then this one would pop up in your mind as an obvious choice!
