“When I say I have found the stroller of my dreams, you’d better believe it.
Bumbleride Indie Natural Edition is that very thing, and here’s why.
[don’t miss a fabulous stroller giveaway after the jump!]
What are my requirements for the perfect stroller? First, glideability (if that’s a word). I want wheels that lock when I’m feeling sporty, and unlock when I want to take it slow. I want my passenger to feel cozy and content, even while maneuvering the most difficult of city terrain. I want air tires to help ithandle both dirt roads and potholes. And I want the thing to collapse with ease. Oh, and not weigh a ton.
Too much to ask?
Well Bumbleride delivers.
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! Your wee one can be completely shaded and still feel the breeze through his locks. And the adjustable handle height means everyone in the family can take turns pushing the baby around. Mama needs a break too, right?
This is more than a mode of transportation for your sweet little babe; this is an eye-catching set of wheels. The fabric is an eco-friendly blend of recycled and bamboo fabric and it feels delicious. The 8 color options are lush and rich.
I am also delighted to tell you that a car seat adapter is not an extra accessory you need to buy. It comes with a bar that functions as a bumper bar or an infant seat adaptor, for major brands like Graco Snugride. (You do have to pay for a different one if you have a Maxi-Cosi infant seat though.)
The optional accessories are also way cool. We tried out the Snack Pack and the germophobe in me just loved it. My biggest pet peeve with snacks left out on a tray at any public place is all of the eager hands going in for the kill. Sure, it builds the immune system, but Bumbleride’s Snack Pack is gloriously enclosed. Phew.
Now on the down side, this stroller is a bit pricey, but I assure you you get your money’s worth. It is an investment that will happily stay strong no matter how uneven the sidewalk.
That being said, I always think about how mothers survive in NYC. This is not a stroller that you can easily carry down subway stairs and collapse in time to get on said subway. When you are paying so much money for a stroller, it should FLY down those subway stairs and make you a Bloody Mary. Just sayin.
