Playgrounds!

What child doesn’t love their parents’ suggestion of heading to the park? Then upon arriving to see the excitement pumping through your child as they begin to run free and enter the world of imaginary play, head down the slide ten times in a row, or play alongside other children as if they have met before. It is clear from these images that the universal language for heading to the local park for outdoor play translates as FUN!

Now if only we could have more parks that are as creative as the designs by Monstrum in Scandinavia. To learn more, visit http://www.monstrum.dk/en.

Using the Multi-use Bars Correctly

Multi-use Bars

It has come to our attention that there is a possibility for multi-use bars included with Indie & Indie Twin models (I-110, I-205, IT-111 and IT-305) to be used incorrectly, resulting in a potential strangulation hazard. The multi-use bar has three positions: 1. Upright (to be used with a toddler), 2. Mid (to only be used when installing an infant car seat) and 3. Folded.

Even though Bumbleride’s packaging instructions, as well as labeling on the multi-use bar, clearly explain correct and incorrect use, we are finding that some consumers are still using these multi-use bars inappropriately.

Because safety is of the utmost concern to Bumbleride, we are releasing this clear warning in conjunction with the CPSC on how the multi-use bars are to be correctly used.

The multi-use bars were included as accessories on these models and are not needed for the safety of your child. They can also be removed if desired. Please always ensure that your child is secure using the 5-point harness in the seat.

Welcome to the Jungle! We recently came upon artist Junzo Teradas “Jungle Friends” jumbo punch out animals and cant get over how cute they are. Printed on sturdy board, these colorful punch outs feature Terada’s unique animal designs and adorable patterns that almost resemble a batik fabric. The kids loved putting them together and pulling them apart again and again and we love the price. Check them out here.

Fabric with a purpose

Earthkeepers

Since launching our ‘Natural Edition’ strollers featuring a recycled polyester outer shell and bamboo blended interior, we have been interested in other companies that take advantage of such innovative materials.

Timberland is one of them, using recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate in their ‘Earthkeepers’ clothing line. Learn more about it here.

Recycled PET is consisted of plastic bottles, creating stronger tensile strength than normal fabrics. It can also be made to be soft to the touch and very durable.

It’s cool to think that each Bumbleride ‘Natural Edition’ stroller uses about 13.5 recycled plastic bottles for it’s outer shell fabric! We’re excited to be using this material and hope to be able to take advantage of it more in the future.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have Betty White read a story to you and your child? Probably not, but now you can experience just that, thanks to this amazing website storylineonline.net. Storyline is an on-line streaming video program that features Screen Actors Guild members reading classic children’s books aloud. We loved listening to James Earl Jones read us a very moving book called “To Be A Drum” and Ernest Borgnine’s big smile as he read us “The Rainbow Fish”. Amazing!
