The team just returned from the exciting Kind and Jugend show. Although this was the fifth year that Bumbleride attended the show in Cologne, Germany, it was the first time that we partnered with the German distributor, Pamper 24. Pamper 24 is one of our newest partners in the International market with customers in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. We are really excited to begin to reach this new market and connect with retailers who share our core company vision for providing parents with great mobility solutions in a very personal way! For those of you who were wondering where we currently sell internationally, Bumbleride has distribution into 17 countries: Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Greenland, the United Kingdom, Canada, Russia, Israel, Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei, Slovakia, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and the Czech Republic.
In addition to reconnecting with our international distributors, Bumbleride also introduced three new products to the Bumbleride line: the Mini Board (giving toddlers a free ride behind Indie, Indie 4 and Indie Twin strollers) , a line of modern and functional diaper bags in colors that match our strollers (same recycled fabric), and the brand new all terrain stroller, Indie 4.
Indie 4 is the third stroller in the very popular Indie line. It possesses all of the same great qualities of Indie (rugged pneumatic tires, UV recycled fabric, welded aluminum chassis, infinity recline, adjustable handle, etc), but also boasts a new 4 wheel design with all wheel suspension. Indie 4 is perfect for the family that is looking for a stroller that bridges the gap between urban and off-road terrains. It can take you seamlessly from a cramped subway station to a forest path without skipping a beat. Indie 4’s seat can be converted to an infant ready position or it can easily be paired with a Bumbleride carrycot or carseat adapter to take your child from newborn to up to 50lbs. It is also compatible with most Bumbleride accessories. Indie 4 will be available in early 2014. Indie 4 and the entire Bumbleride stroller line continue to surprise our European friends with their super lightweight design, compact fold, and eco-friendly fabrics.
The team had a lot of fun at the show and is excited about the possibility of expanding distribution into France, Spain, Italy and beyond in 2014!
Of course, we didn’t travel over 5,000 miles and forget to take in the beautiful sites around Germany. European cities remind us of the longevity of good design: both in outward appearance as well as in their functional layout.
