Most Helpful Reviews on the Peg Perego Primo Viaggio SIP 5-70 Convertible Car Seat.

  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – 5/7/2012 – We bought this car seat because we had the Peg Perego Primo Viaggio 30/30 and liked it, but our baby grew out of that one. This car seat is similar to the Primo Viaggio 30/30 in that it is very well constructed and appears to be quite durable. Compared to other convertible seats that I have put my son in, I feel much safer having him in this one. Although the seats specifically designed only for young babies offer more head/neck protection, this convertible car seat is the best one that I have seen in this category. I would definitely buy it again. It is very easy to adjust the straps and he is very comfortable cruising around town in this seat. (read more and buy it at
  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – 10/5/2012 – In the extensive search for a car seat, peg perego beats them all. Starting off with the travel system and then upgrading to the convertible series I could not be more impressed with the durability, safety and comfort of this seat. After a year of vigorous wear and tear my seats are in impeccable shape. The price tag is worth every penny. The grandparents are also purchasing this seat for their car. (read more and buy it at
  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – 11/6/2012 – … The Paloma fabric is amazing! It’s really expensive for a car seat, but spend the extra money for the leatherette fabric. It’s definitively worth it and will save your sanity! Just a damp cloth and whatever the little man has caked on it comes right off without any fuss. No removing the fabric (even though you can); literally just wipe it down. Also, I have no problem fitting it in a sedan, CUV and full size SUV…. Only con besides the expense is the fact there is no canopy, but that is with all the convertibles so not a big deal. You definitely get what you pay for with this seat: functional, beautiful and easy! Install was a breeze! Totally worth every penny!! (read more and buy it at
