Peg Perego Booklet


Peg Perego Book


Peg Perego Book Pop Up


If you are looking for The Peg Perego Stroller Travel System to include in your baby registry, there are three good options: Booklet versus Book versus Book Pop-Up.

People always ask how they differ from each other. If you are looking for a stroller that you can transform into a travel system, the three definitely can but with certain limitations.

The Peg Perego Booklet and Book cannot accommodate other infant car seats aside from the Peg Perego car seats. But the Book Pop-up can. It can use adapters for other car seat brands such as Maxi-Cosi, Cybex, and Nuna car seats, therefore making it more flexible as an option for a travel system.

The Strollers’ basics are in general the same, except that the Booklet and Book are only forward facing while the Book Pop-Up is reversible.

The Peg Perego Stroller Travel System

How Does Peg Perego Booklet Differ from Book and Book Pop-up?


1. The Size


Book Pop-Up


34 x 17.5 in.



36.6 x 15 in.


Stroller – Folded:

33 x 15.25 in.

38.5 x 21.5 x 40.75 in.



41.73 x 23.23 x 36.61 in.


Stroller – Opened:

36.5 x 23.16 x 41.58 in.

Bassinet – Folded:

32.5 x 8.75 in.

Bassinet – Opened:

32.5 x 16.42 x 26.3 in.

The Book Pop-Up Stroller is the most compact when folded. When you add the bassinet to the equation, the Book Pop-Up is the bulkiest when folded because the width of the folded bassinet alone is an additional 8 inches.


2. The Weight


Book Pop-Up
19.6 pounds 19.8 pounds

Stroller: 23.7 pounds

Bassinet: 9.04 pounds


The Booklet is lightest of the three, although not much difference with the Book – just 0.2 lbs lesser.

The Book Pop-Up is the heaviest weighing 23.7 pounds for the stroller alone. Add the weight of the bassinet, and you have a total of 32.74 pounds! That’s heavy considering that it is still empty. It weighs more than some of the most massive jogging strollers around which are less than 30 pounds but comes with bigger wheels than the Book Pop-Up.


3. The Option To Use The Chassis Only


Book Pop-Up
Toddler Seat Can Be Removed To Use Chassis Only No No Yes

You can remove the toddler seat so that you can attach a compatible infant car seat to a Book Pop-Up Chassis

If you have heard of the Chicco Keyfit Caddy Stroller or the Graco Snugrider frame, they are simply very light stroller frames that will allow you to carry a compatible car seat if a lightweight travel system is what you are looking for.

The Book Pop-Up can do the same. You just have to remove the toddler seat so that what you are left with is the Chassis (stroller frame). You can then snap your compatible infant seat into the Chassis for a lightweight travel system option.

When your child has outgrown the infant car seat, you can then put back the toddler seat and have your child sitting in the stroller seat.

This is something that you can only do with the Book Pop-Up.


4. The Reversible Seat


Book Pop-Up
Reversible Seat No No Yes


Only the Book Pop-Up seat can face both forward-facing and rear-facing. It’s a useful feature especially for first-time parents who would always want to check on their little one now and then. 🙂

The Booklet and the Book only face forward.

To reverse the toddler seat in a Book Pop-Up Stroller, you have to remove the seat and change its direction.


5. The Canopy


Book Pop-Up
Extends half-way Extends half-way  Up to the leg rest as long as the seat is completely up

Both the Booklet and the Book’s canopy extend half-way. The Book Pop-Up Canopy can reach up to the leg rest as long as you make the toddler seat completely upright.


6. The Peekaboo Window


Book Pop-Up
Small plastic on top of the seat canopy Small plastic on top of the seat canopy + Mesh netting found at the head of the canopy  Mesh netting on top of the canopy

Once you bring the canopy all the way down, you can peek on your child through the respective peek-a-boo windows.

Booklet’s peekaboo window can be found on top of the canopy. There is a small plastic window in there.  The Booklet’s mesh is situated more at the lower back than at the top part. It can be a “peekaboo” window, too, but its primary purpose is for additional ventilation on hot days.

Aside from the little plastic on top, when you move the canopy of the Book all the way down, there is a mesh canopy that also can serve as an additional “peekaboo window” which is located on the canopy itself.

The Book Pop-Up Only has mesh netting when you extend the canopy all the way.


7. The Fabric Color

All the fabric colors are different across the three models.


8. Options For Car Seat Adapters For Other Brands


Book Pop-Up
None None Maxi Cosi, Cybex and Nuna Car Seats (Here’s the Adapter)

While all three of them are compatible with Peg Perego infant car seats (Primo Viaggio SL, SIP 30-30, Primo Viaggio 4-35), only the Book Pop-Up will let you accept infant car seats from other brands using their respective adapters.


9. The Included Accessories


Book Pop-Up
None Rain Cover Bassinet

The Booklet doesn’t come with any accessory. The Book only comes with a rain cover, while the bassinet is included in the Book Pop-Up.

There’s a long list of accessories that the three can accommodate, all of which comes with an added price tag, of course.



The Peg Perego Booklet, when compared side by side with Book and Book Pop-up is pretty much the same as a stroller, except for the weight, which is the only winning point of the Booklet. But because it doesn’t come with accessories and doesn’t face two-way, it seems that it is a bit over-priced for the functions it offers.

Unlike the Booklet, the Peg Perego Book has a rain cover as an included accessory. You will save a few dollars by getting the Book IF a rain cover is important to you and you plan to get it with the Booklet anyway.

If a forward-facing/rear facing travel system stroller is what you are looking for, you can consider the Book Pop-Up instead.

If you are getting the Book Pop-up, you have the choice to use just the stroller frame and snap the Peg Perego car seat or bassinet directly to it. Take off the “toddler” seat and lock the car seat directly to the chassis instead of the to the usual seat of the stroller. It will make everything lighter especially during the initial months that you are still using infant car seats.

Some parents prefer their newborns to sleep in a bassinet before they transition them to the crib. The bassinet also can rock back and forth to lull your baby to sleep and has a mesh canopy for ventilation. This is something that will come in handy when you choose the Book Pop-Up.

The three can fold compactly, are travel system compatible and are one-hand steering easy drive.

If you already have a Peg Perego Car Seat such as the Viaggio 4-35 and you are looking for a stroller to complete your travel system, then the Booklet or the Book can help you do the job.

However, for versatility sake, you can choose the Book Pop-up.

Peg Perego Book Series can be a perfect companion for every trip away from home. THEY ARE LUXURY options if your budget is at the higher level.

  1. Hi Pitin!

    Was gifted the book pop up stroller and two days before my shower, realized that it is not a complete travel system. Curious if you would recommend using the viaggio 4-35 nido or a less expensive option like the maxi cosi. Not sure if you still check this site, but help! Thanks

    1. Hi Kira,

      Sorry for the late response. I read your comment from my email, but I was out and occupied and only had the chance to open my laptop now, so here it is.

      I believe that you need not get a more expensive Peg Perego Nido seat when a cheaper option like Maxi Cosi Mico Max can do the job, too. However, you have to get a car seat adapter for your Book Pop-Up stroller.

      Another straight-forward cheaper option is to get the Peg Perego Primo Viaggio 4-35, which can do the job, too (without adapters).

      If you are curious how’s the comparison of the Maxi Cosi Max and Viaggio 4-35, I have a side by side comparison here

      I hope this helps.

      Kind Regards,

  2. Hi Pitin,

    Thanks for the comparisons! How does the 4/35 Viaggio Peg Perrigo car seat “snap” into the Book? I just received both and having trouble finding good clear instructions on how to click them together. Any one else having this issue?

    1. Hi Sarah,

      This video shows how to snap the Peg Perego 4/35 infant car seat to the Booklet Stroller. The Book and the Booklet are somehow similar in structure, so I believe that attaching the Primo Viaggio car seat to the Book is similar in process.

      I hope this helps.


    1. Hi Cherry,

      What I will say here is based on my own “needs” and what I think my child needs, too.

      I would have chosen the Book Pop-Up because of the usability of the chassis during the early months of still using the infant car seat. But I don’t think I would need the bassinet. At home, I prefer to co-sleep and babywear, and outside the house, I think the infant car seat is good enough for a place for my baby to sleep. When my baby gets older, she can rest on the stroller toddler seat.

      That leaves me with Booklet and Book to choose from.

      I would have gotten the Booklet because of being lighter than the Book – but the 0.2 pounds difference is not very noticeable.

      Price-wise, you save a little by getting the Book because it already includes a rain cover compared to getting the Booklet and its rain cover separately.

      I am ok with both of them. But if I need to choose just one, I’d probably just go with the Book to save a little since I would need a rain cover anyway.
