Lauren Palmer

Social Media Manager

Lauren has been working in social media for the past 5 years where she has learnt some big lessons about the importance of an established brand being well and properly represented in the digital world.

She has seen a huge disconnect between having an incredible product but lacking that human side online which, when it comes to purchases for your kids, is everything. She is a family orientated woman who values the importance of simplicity and reliability in products when it comes to her future family. 


With Peg Perego products she will be able to bring the incredible quality and ease, that comes with such an established and trusted brand, to the digital marketing world whilst showcasing that human side too. Peg Perego is a family orientated business who focus on expanding their family mentality with every purchase of their products. She is so excited to bring Peg Perego to your devices so you get to experience the brand too. 

Carina Baby

Adriaan Smuts

Financial Director

Although Adriaan is new to the world of Peg Perego, he did not hesitate to join the team at Carina Baby immediately ensuring that his son and daughter enjoy the comfort and safety offered by the Peg Perego range of strollers and car seats. Adriaan says “everyone should introduce their little ones to Peg, the quality and design are unparalleled, and the ease of use means you spend less time parenting and more time enjoying the experience. The value for money offered is unbeatable” 


Adriaan mostly spends his time behind the scenes taking care of strategy, marketing and financing but don’t be surprised if you find him sharing his views on why he trusts Peg to look after his own kids.

Caid Aspden

Account Manager

Being very family orientated, Caid has plans on starting his own family quite soon. What better way to prepare for being a well informed parent than immersing himself in such a unique product like Peg Perego?


Having spent some time living and travelling in Europe, Caid noticed there were a lot of families who struggled with day to day traveling with their travel systems, but assumed that's how it was for young families. When Caid came back to South Africa and was exposed to Peg Perego for the first time, he realised there was a product out there that was so convenient and easy to use. He knew he had to share and introduce  the Peg Perego brand with as many South African families as he could.


Having previous experience in sales work, Caid's role in Carina Baby is the management of online sales accounts and inventory. But knowing how easy it is to handle Peg Perego products, Caid would be more than happy to assist in demonstrating the products and getting you started on your family's new journey.

Following in his father's footsteps, Sipho joined the Carina Baby team 6 years ago assisting his father, Lucas, in the service department. Sipho is responsible for ensuring that all Peg Perego products brought in for servicing leave looking as good as new. 

In addition to his work with Lucas in the service department, Sipho also assists with our warehousing and inventory management making sure that your orders are ready for collection and delivery as efficiently as possible.
