Nearly 2 million sick and injured children have been treated at Rady Children’s Hospital since it opened on August 19, 1954. It is San Diego county’s only hospital dedicated solely to pediatrics and is the region’s designated pediatric trauma center.
“Rady Children’s Hospital – San Diego, loves Bumbleride Strollers. Bumbleride cares about making life easier for parents and their children and that is exactly what they do for our tiniest patients and families at Rady. Bumbleride donates strollers to Rady on a continuous basis throughout the year impacting the quality of life of families with financial and medical needs. Rady Children’s Hospital San Diego thanks Bumbleride for their generosity” said Belinda Lanois, In-Kind Coordinator for Rady Children’s Hospital
Recently a stroller was given to the mother of Ruth Ruiz. Ruth is a 3 ½ month old baby who was born prematurely at 38 weeks gestation, has Down’s syndrome and a cardiac condition. She has been hospitalized in the NICU since birth due to various medical complications. Her parents lack resources and have not been able to buy a stroller for their daughter. Ruth’s mother was very appreciative for this donation!

Life here at Bumbleride has been a whirlwind of action. It began with a move to a new office, producing a video, a photo shoot for our new Natural Edition, designing our new website and launching some of our new products for 2011.
There has been so much activity and excitement that now we’re going to sit back and enjoy seeing your reaction to all the creative flow that we have been feeling.
We are looking forward to sharing the results of our hard work in the upcoming weeks.
In the meantime, here are a few pictures of our new work space.
Congratulations to Aly Tyefisher Hodgson on winning the 2010 Bumbleride Winter Photo Contest! Here is her Bumbleride experience:
“The Bumbleride Indie was recommended to me when I was 6 months pregnant by my little sister. She doesn’t have children so had no real reason to recommend the Bumbleride except it was the best looking stroller she had seen. We did some research and everywhere we looked Amazon, Baby Gizmo, Toy’s R Us all agreed the Bumbleride Indie was the stroller to have. I am a huge believer there is no single stroller for everyone, you have to find the one that works for you and your family. And the Indie is the one for us. Every aspect of the Bumbleride has met or exceeded our expectations. I love that the stroller is so versatile. One of the features that make it so versatile is the inflatable wheels. I am so grateful for the inflatable wheels and that the front wheel can be locked into place which allows the stroller to be just as wonderful in strollercize classes as the shopping at the mall. The Indie can handle fresh fallen snow in Alberta, Canada as well as the beaches of the Pacific Ocean. It travels great by plane, as well as 2 week long road trips. I know it can handle all these things because we have done it. Wherever we have been in the last 2 years it has come with us.
Not only has the stroller itself surpassed my expectations but so has the customer service. Anytime I have had a question I can just ask on their facebook fan page and get a quick response. I have emailed customer service with a question regarding the front wheel and they responded right away and help me solve the problem (which was a user error, not a malfunction).
Another feature I love about the Bumbleride are the accessories, the foot muff (very important in Alberta, Canada) and the Snack Pack are two of our favorite. I was uncertain about the snack pack but it just makes the stroller. In our winter photo you can see it but my son brought along 9 little bath animals to keep him company on his walk. It is the perfect size for a drink, snacks or bath toys J And easy to clean.
As a mom I know how hard it is to know your making the right choice especially on something as important as a stroller. When friends ask I always recommend the Indie. Two years later my sister is pregnant and I told her she just has to get the Indie not only because it’s the best looking stroller you’ll ever see but it’s the most practical one too!”
We recently found one of or new favorite sites, Pinterest.com. It is a virtual pin board where you can keep collections of things you love, from favorite baby products to recipes and fashion. Now you can organize all your favorite things on one page, because none of us want to waste anymore time looking for that one thing we saw and loved.
It’s also great for inspiration of any kind, because you can follow other members who you think have great taste. We love all the inspirational pictures of babies nurseries and kids rooms. Go to Pinterest.com and start pinning.
In March we’re moving to a pretty cool new space down the street from our current office. In anticipation of the move, we’ve ordered a set of the new Herman Miller Sayl chairs. So cool! The frameless back chair was Designed by Yves Behar and inspired by the principles of suspension bridges.
Pictured is the configuration that we chose for our office. We can’t wait to try them out.
