Let’s Talk Baby Gear! – Bumbleride Indie Final Review – United Kingdom

March 11th, 2014
 

I’ve been testing the Bumbleride Indie for the past few months and here’s my final review of it.

 First I must say that out of the 13 pushchairs that we’ve had here thus far, the Indie is THE BEST and the easiest to push of them all!!!
 
I will start the review with the cons since there aren’t many..
1. The recline. The strap recline, as is usual with this type of mechanism, is a little hard to use when adjusting the seat from flat to upright.
2. No peak-a-boo window. There’s a mesh opening on the top of the canopy but you can’t see the child through it.
3. Still trying to think of more cons but nothing comes to mind :)
 
Now for the pros :)
1. The looks. The Indie looks good, doesn’t it? It feels at home in the middle of a busy shopping centre/high street and in the middle of a field!
2. The wheels. The Indie rolls on 12 inch air-filled tyres that are by far the best I’ve seen on a pushchair!
3. The seat. The seat unit is huge and extremely comfortable according to my son. I also love that the seat has an adjustable leg rest. The backrest is very well supported (something that I always look for in a pushchair). The harness is easy to adjust and will suit a small baby just as well as an older toddler.
4. The canopy. The hood is large on it’s own but it can be moved even further forward to shade the child in the summer.
5. The shopping basket. By far the biggest I’ve seen on an off-roader and very easy to access (not easy enough for things to fall out though!).
6. The handlebar. The handlebar is adjustable and can be locked in 1 of 5 positions to suit parents of all heights. What I particularly like about the handlebar is its shape – it’s very ergonomic. The foam it’s made of is very durable and has a nice feel to it.
7. The fold. The Indie folds very easily and to a really compact size! 
8. The weight. The Indie weighs an incredible 9kg! That’s very light for a full size pushchair! At the same time the Indie remains very sturdy. Unlike other 3-wheelers I’ve never had to stop the Indie from tipping sideways on a slope! 
9. The cup holder. Yes, I know it’s sad but I do love a good cup holder and I like it even more when it’s included with the pushchair!
10. It comes in a double! Check out the amazing Bumbleride Indie Twin – it’s double the fun!

Baby Gizmo – Bumbleride Mini Board Video Review

Baby Gizmo Spotlight Video Review: Bumbleride Mini Board

Baby Gizmo recently braved the cold to review our Mini Board with Indie! Here are a few highlights from their review along with her video review.

  • This skateboard-style board is a perfect way to extend the life of your Bumbleride Indie or Indie Twin to accommodate those growing toddlers who just want to catch a ride from time to time.
  • The Mini Board easily clamps to the frame of your Bumbleride stroller in seconds and features a slip-resistant deck for your toddler to stand on while they hold on to the handlebar.
  • We found that the two swivel wheels are very durable and gave it great maneuverability.
  • Since the board is designed for the toddler to stand inside the handlebar, at 5’5, I was happy to find out that the board didn’t get in the way of my stride as I walked.
  • You do have to remove the board from the stroller when folding, but the clamp system makes it super easy.

To get an up close and personal look at the Mini Board, take a peek at our full video review below.

Guest Blog Post Series – Michael Underwood and Angellica Bell – United Kingdom

Michael Underwood and Angellica Bell Guest Blog Post Indie Twin Best Double Stroller

My daughter is growing up fast and has just hit her six month milestone. She’s already sitting up unaided and has outgrown the carrycot on our Bumbleride. Although we love the longer sleeping hours, the reduced crying and the cheeky giggling, we do miss having a new born baby. Not that we’re considering having a third…at least not right now anyway!

Thankfully, it was a straightforward job to re-organise the buggy, but it meant another foot muff needed to be installed. It’s a particularly cold winter this year in London and the last thing we want, as we head towards the Christmas holiday season, are two children under two with stinking colds.

My wife and I love Christmas and normally spend the holidays in New York City. Since having children though, this hasn’t been possible and I’m not even sure it’s legal to have children in Manhattan, as I don’t even remember ever seeing a child’s buggy on the island. I guess it’s more likely I just didn’t notice any, but you never know. 

The one thing I always dread about Christmas is the annual shopping expedition. It was bad enough when we were child free, but with two little ones, it’s bound to be stressful.  After all, people who don’t have children do not like double buggies. Seriously, I have never heard so much tutting or seen so many disapproving looks. Admittedly, this isn’t helped by the fact that even on a normal shopping trip I end up bumping into someone’s ankles or banging past their shopping bags, so what chance do I have during the busy festive season? One thing in my favour, other than the fact the Indie Twin is easily manoeuvrable, is that it’s also more compact that similar buggies. I’ve never been a fan of buggies which have one child sat over the top of the other and besides, there’s no way my son would be happy being hidden away like that. He has to have a front seat, so he can busily interact with everything and everyone he sees. There’s also plenty of room to store your shopping, so we won’t have to balance it all precariously on the front bar.

This is going to be our first Christmas as a family of four and I cannot wait for the day to arrive. The stress doesn’t end there though, as it’s my son’s birthday on the 26th and my wedding anniversary on the 27th. December is an expensive month. Happy Holidays!

My Baby Stuff – Getting Around with the New Bumbleride Mini Board – Canada

Bumbleride Mini Board

Getting Around with the New Bumbleride Mini Board

I don’t like to admit it but my six year old daughter doesn’t like walking long distances. When we go out on the town we constantly have the kids taking turns in the stroller. Our toddler starts in the stroller until our daughter can no longer walk. Then we switch the kids again and again.

It’s a drag and can make outings very exhausting.

I was so happy when Bumbleride introduced its newest accessory for the Indie – the Mini Board.

This is the attachment I’ve been waiting for! The minute my daughter saw the Mini Board she was interested to head out to give it a try. She immediately told us she’d be surfing behind the stroller.

I’ll be honest, I was a bit skeptical about the set up at first. My main concern was that the board would get in my way and my feet would bump it with every step. I also thought it slow down the glide that I was familiar with and interfere with my steering. I’m happy to report thatmy feet didn’t even get close to the Mini Board when we were in motion. It also did not interfere with the maneuverability of my stroller. I can easily steer the stroller with one hand when the Mini Board is attached and answer my phone if neccesary.

The Mini Board attaches easily to my Bumbleride Indie and stays put.

Your child can stand on the Mini Board behind the stroller handle but my daughter prefers to stand inside the handle.
This also makes it easier for me to steer.

What I love about the Mini Board:

  • Gives my oldest child a spot to stand when we’re out and about
  • It’s easy to install. 2 quick snaps is all it takes.
  • It is sturdy and has awesome slip-resistant grip for little feet
  • The large wheels that turn 360 degrees
  • My stroller continues to maneuver perfectly with the Mini Board attached
  • The Mini Board is a quality, well-made product
  • The attachment fits the design aesthetics of the stroller
  • It extends the life of my stroller

We took our Bumbleride Indie and Mini Board to our local museum last weekend. It was such a wonderful outing. Both kids were happy and we were able to zip through the museum much faster than usual.

I constantly have questions about the Mini Board when I’m out using it.  Moms think it’s the coolest attachment and I love telling them that it is a perfect addition! I obviously love my stroller and I’m not ready to give it up, so this allows it to adapt with our growing kids.

The Mini Board works great with our stroller. It doesn’t slow us down at all. Both my kids love riding the Mini Board and have asked me many times to go for more walks! I especially like that the Mini Board will extend the life of my stroller. I can see myself using my Indie for a few more years now that we have this accessory.

The Mini Board is compatible with both the Bumbleride Indie and the Indie Twin. It is designed to hold a maximum weight of 44lbs.

You can purchase the Mini Board for $120.00 at specialty stores across Canada and the US. You can also purchase it from the Bumbleride website.

The kids still take turns when we go out with the stroller. But now they take turns riding the Mini Board!

Cool Mom Picks – Eco-friendly strollers (and accessories!) that don’t skimp on style

January 3rd, 2014
 
 

Bumbleride Stroller | Cool Mom Picks

I’ve tried to be a pretty eco-savvy mom. But with three kids and all the gear that goes along with a posse that size? Yeah. Many times I’ve struggled to wrap my brain around how we could have wound up with so much stuff … and where it might end up years down the road. When my kids were teeny babies, there just weren’t many green”options to choose from. But today things are different, in the best way. And CMP fave Bumbleride is making it easier for parents to make choices that are healthier for our kids and better for the planet, too.

The first awesome feature of Bumbleride’s new strollers is that they use eco-friendly fabrics made with 50% recycled PET from plastic bottles and 50% renewable bamboo charcoal. That’s pretty cool. And just because it’s greener fabric doesn’t mean it lacks color: this amazing eco-fabric actually comes in bright shades of pink, aquamarine, red, and more. (I’m partial to the red for the holiday season, I have to say.)

It’s not just the stroller fabric that’s cleaned up, but the accessory fabric, too. And as winter rolls into town, a Bumbleride footmuff and liner would be the perfect accompaniment to keep baby’s toes toasty on long, chilly walks. Plus, what a fun way to add a pop of color to dreary winter days.

For particularly snowy and rainy climates, I’ve saved my favorite for last: the Non-PVC Rain Cover. That “non-PVC” part is what I love. So many of these clear stroller covers are still made from PVC, a material that’d just plain bad for everyone, especially babies. So I love that with the Bumbleride covers babies get protection from the elements without having to breathe in any icky, plastic-y fumes.

Bumbleride’s eco-friendly strollers and stroller accessories are available online, or give them a test drive at your neighborhood baby store.

The Baby Guy Gear Guide – #12DaysOfStrollers: DAY NINE

December 19th, 2013
 
 


Best All Terrain Stroller Baby Guy NYC Bumbleride Giveaway

It’s that time of year…again.  This is my third year doing a 12 Days of Christmas-themed giveaway, but this year I thought I’d change it up a bit.  One year I gave away prizes that corresponded to the number of the day (12 winners on Day 12, etc), last year I just gave away a ton of stuff.  This year it’s strollers.  All.  Strollers.

 

 

 

 

Day 9 is a package from Bumbleride.  I will maintain that the Bumbleride Indie is one of the smoothest strollers I have EVER pushed.  It looks great, has great wheels, great suspension, and holds a ton of weight.  There’s not a lot NOT to love about this stroller.  Throw in a diaper bag AND the new Mini Board for an older kid to ride along, and you’ve got a niiiiiiiiiice bundle of bumble.  See that widget below?  What exactly are you waiting for?
