The Peg Perego Skate Jumper Seat is an accessory that is available from the Italian designer and manufacturer of baby items, Peg Perego.
Here we take a close look at this particular jumper seat.
Peg Perego Skate Jumper Seat – the Details
In essence, the Peg Perego Skate Jumper Seat allows you to transform your existing Skate System from catering to one baby, to being able to cater to another child.
This is perfect for families who have had a recent addition, and do not want to sell off all of their existing items in order to purchase brand new twin sets. Just make sure to choose a safe one! (ref.)
Additionally, most strollers on the market that are created for two children place them side by side. This creates a very wide and often difficult to control stroller that is generally not much fun to wheel around. Peg Perego has taken a totally different approach in their design of the Skate jumper seat accessory.
The Peg Perego Skate Jumper Seat fits perfectly into the existing Skate system by being placed on top of the existing stroller seat (with much comfort room to spare for the child on the lower level, of course).
Benefits & Features
The main features and benefits of the Skate Jumper seat are:
- It can be used with the stroller seat and with Peg Perego’s SIP 30-30 car seat. This allows a completely modular system that eliminates the need to have multiple items that take up considerable storage space and importantly, don’t allow you to travel with them conveniently; particularly when it comes to packing the items into and out of the car, and moving your baby between the car seat and stroller with minimal disturbance and fuss.
- The seat has been designed for children aged six months and above. This means that if you’ve had a new baby come along, your older child can then be upgraded to the jumper seat, whilst your youngest baby enjoys the comfort and design of the original stroller seat.
- It has been designed to be completely compatible with the company’s famous modular Skate System.
The seat is able to be used by children up to 10 years of age, or up to 100 pounds which is quite generous, especially when compared with similar offerings from other brands.
It meets all of the USA crash safety standards and has been extensively crash tested to ensure that this is the case, giving you peace of mind that you are purchasing the very highest quality in regards to the safety of your precious child.
The reason that the seat is able to be used by children up to 10 years of age is simple: it can be converted quickly to a booster seat (backless), and thus, ensures that you do not have to go out and buy a separate booster chair for your child once he or she has outgrown the jumper seat. This saves considerable money and clutter in the long run. The headrest is multi layer and is also able to be fully adjusted, meaning that as your child grows you can ensure that he is absolutely comfortable and will never feel that the seat is too small.
Peg Perego Skate Jumper Seat Reviews
So what are real people saying about their experience with the Skate Jumper Seat?
We took a look around the web to find real genuine comments and reviews from people who selected the Skate Jumper Seat for their own needs. This is what one person had to say:
“We got this to use on our Peg Perego Skate. Our oldest is almost 3 and only needs the jumper seat when she gets tired or wants to hitch a ride. It is a perfect way to keep you from buying a double stroller that you don’t need. It certainly gets a bit heavy pushing a 15 pound baby and 30+ pound toddler, but it would be the same with any double. I love using it. We have used it for long days at the zoo and it was perfect.”
As noted above, this person is really happy with the way she is able to push both of her children around for an entire day without needing to purchase a dual stroller (which as mentioned, are exceptionally unwieldy to push around, particularly in places like a zoo where it can be crowded and with limited space).
Above all, people like the customer above purchase this system for the convenience of having a modular, dynamic set up that can be changed around depending upon needs and how many children require it on any particular occasion.
One other commenter noted that:
“I am very happy with product. It is nice material solid seat. My son is 30 lb and can easy sit there at 2 years old. The stroller still moves very easy with both of them there. My son 2 1/2 (30lbs) and daughter youngest 6 months (15 lbs).”
This person has a toddler aged child as well as a 6 month old, so can push them both around using the jumper seat attached to the Skate stroller system. Her son will have many years ahead of him using this product as the seat can, as mentioned above, be converted to a booster seat for kids as they grow into it.
Like all Peg Perego products, the Skate Jumper Seat is designed and made in Italy, ensuring the highest of quality standards are met.
The Jumper Seat is priced at around $100 but can often be found at a discount.
