Graco or Peg-Perego Car Seat????

Postby kalalena » Tue Jul 15, 2008 5:21 pm

I am wondering if anyone is willing to share their experiences with either of these car seats. I like the look of the Peg-perego but the reviews i've read are not as good...Anybody?

We had the Graco Snugride (part of a travel system we had which was really convenient when Isabel was a newborn)

We didn't have any problems with it. :)

I haven't ever tried a Peg Perego though

Graco!!!

I had a Graco Safeseat and Peg Perego something or other that someone gave almost brand new. It was so heavy and bulky and hard to use.

I love my Graco :D

I have the peg perego and it is HEAVY!!! I also don't think it looks comfortable for my son at all...but they rank high for safety which is why i got it...perhaps see if another one ranks high for safety too

The gracos are high on safety too. They are easy to install and not as bulky, still big though. I had a safeseat with my dd2. She fit in it until she was a year old. (She was 20 some pounds) The only reason I moved her out of it was because I kept being tempted to try and carry her in it. She was just to heavy for me to carry her and the car seat at that point!

I love my safeseat. My girlfriend loved her snugride. Both great carseats in my opinion.

I have a Peg Perego car seat and Love it. Yes it is heavier... but I had no problems getting it in and out of my Expedition. And by the time it started to get too heavy with DD in it, it was time to move her to a Convertible anyways. My DD loved being in it and I love the orange color. I got so many compliments off it. I completely trusted it to be safe. And the amount of awards it has earned, assured me of my choice even more. I thought the Graco's just seems so cheap.

I was hoping the new Isofix base would be out for my next kiddo but I haven't seen anything in awhile. You should check into it. It's amazing new system that has an idiot proof way of installing the base. It's such a great system that my hubby's auto company was talking about working with them with their restaint systems.

Good luck on your search. I researched for six months before I decided. I was stuck between the Peg and Britax. All our other carseats are Britax.
