Looking for a new ride for your little one? You’re in luck. Just like we did in the winter and spring, it’s time to round up the best new stroller releases of the season. Your favorite brands haven’t necessarily reinvented the wheel this season — but they came pretty close.
From a lightweight double umbrella stroller to the most innovative jogging stroller ever made (seriously — if you don’t believe me, read on!), here are the hottest new strollers to know about.
2012 Bumbleride AQUA
The newest Bumbleride addition is this beautiful aqua color, available in their all-terrain Indie, lightweight Flite, and their double Indie Twin models.
Perfect for: Anyone who wants a stroller that’s as pretty as it is functional.
Highlights: I’m a big Bumbleride fan, and this summery aqua color makes me love them even more. Other than the color, the only big change on the 2012 model is that a bumper bar isn’t included anymore.
Babble Best All-Terrain/Jogger Stroller-“The Bumbleride Indie was one of our favorite strollers of the year, but since then the brand has released two special editions: the Natural Edition (made with sustainable bamboo and 50 percent recycled materials) and the Movement Edition (designed for a sporty, active lifestyle.)”- Babble, http://www.babble.com/products/baby-products/best-stroller-baby-jogger-pram-lightweight-jogging-bumbleride-special-edition/#blogger
Cool Mom Picks-“When I say I have found the stroller of my dreams, you’d better believe it.Every detail has been carefully executed. While the Bumbleride rolls like a chariot, it weighs in at just about twenty pounds. It is super easy to fold and unfold (promise, I did it several times). It has great storage space, and a super huge sun canopy and a sunroof, too. Score!” http://coolmompicks.com/2011/08/finally_a_stroller_that_gets_i.php#ixzz1hsOLrF00
People Magazine Celebrity Babies-“Where do we begin! Gliding with ease when pushed, the fully adjustable seat allows an even cozier ride when baby falls asleep. And while it maneuvers like a dream, it offers a smooth break with a simple push of the foot locking both wheels at the same time.
There’s also enough storage room for all your baggage. And to make our hearts race even more, it folds easily, complete with a strap to carry it. With an ample canopy that keeps the sun out, there’s also a pocket for storage and a peek-a-boo window so you can see your child.
But most of all, it’s made with a super soft blend of recycled and bamboo fabrics which has the natural ability to absorb moisture, regulate temperature and inhibit bacterial growth. So if you’re an eco-minded parent, this sleek ride was made for you.” http://celebritybabies.people.com/2011/08/29/bumbleride-indie-stroller-natural-edition-review/
