Eco Child’s Play shares their thoughts on Indie Natural Edition

June 26th, 2011


Since I live in the mountains, I had to have a serious stroller to handle the dirt roads and trails we walked.  I had a jogging stroller made by Trek, but the front wheel did not swivel requiring a large turning radius that was not so practical when I did take it into town.  Bumbleride has the problem solved with their all terrain Indie model:

  • Bumbleride Indie is suitable for infancy and up with standard infant headrest and shoulder pads, multi-use infant seat adapter/bumper bar and safety strap, jogging strap and cup holder

  • 12″ air inflated tires with 360° swivel front wheel with inline locking option for light jogging

  • Multi-adjustable handle height, backrest and footrest with flat position for sleeping babies

  • Oversized canopy with SPF 45 UV lining for maximum sun coverage

  • Lightweight, anodized aluminum frame construction with an easy, compact fold and spacious cargo basket

  • Derek of Natural Papa wrote a great review of this stroller:

    The Bumbleride is the Mercedes of strollers.

    There, I said it.

    We pushed this thing, fully loaded with a kid and all the assorted kid gear we could cram into it, up hills and over grass, through dirt and gravel and nuclear waste (ok, I’m stretching it a bit here), and it performed with extreme awesomeness. Yup, awesomeness.

    Furthermore, the fabrics are made from recycled content and bamboo!

    Would I buy this product? If I needed a new stroller yes, but I could never, ever afford the price tag ($490).  I once bought a car for that price!  The best thing to do for the planet and your budget is to get a used stroller.  You can often find them on craigslist or from a friend.  You can even barter a work trade or something, instead of dishing out the big bucks…but if you want a Mercedes…
