Stroller and car seat! Graco or Peg Perego?????

Ok ladies, having a very difficult time here. I like certain features of the Peg Perego Primo Venezia like the fact that the handle is reversible and you can watch baby while they are lying down or sitting up. However, the close is annoying and it is expensive.As for the Graco I like the ease of the one handed closure, the patterns and the price. Not really sure what to do. Whichever stroller I get I will get the matching car seat. Any advice or help will be appreciated.

I am not sure about the weight of the Vencenzia but I got the Pliko 3 because it was 19lbs as opposed to the Quattro Tour which is 28lbs and I knew I was going to get annoyed each time I lifted the Graco. I know that Graco makes the Metrolight but to me it still felt heavier than the Peg Perego. I also liked the fact that it took up less room so I was able to put other items in the trunk with the stroller.

I have a Peg Perego Venezia, and yes, while it is on the heavier side, I am able to fold it with one hand (lots of practice!) and its one of my best baby items. I got it at my shower, and definitely worth the money for me! I also used it from day one (I never got a Snap and Go) and I just snapped his infant seat right into the Peg and we were off.

We are also getting the Pliko 3 and the Peg Perego car seat. My sistser has the Pliko 3 for her 9 month old and loves it. I will use the car seat while my baby is a newborn- and then I can use it when my baby becomes a toddler. I did really like the Venizia, but I live in the city and it was just too heavy for me.

I have a Graco Quattro Tour, its not that bad (as far as heavyiness) and I have to lift it in and out of the back of my truck.

We did too. The Graco Vienna (Counting Sheep) travel system. The car seat is the Graco snug ride which was one of the top rated, I think.

ETA: It it not as heavy as I tought it would be and I only need one hand to close the stroller.
