bumbleride 9 Our favourite brands   spotlight on Bumbleride

Babyology from Australia recently featured Bumbleride. Here are the highlights from their feature:

  • The Bumbleride Indie is incredibly compact and weighs a tiny nine kilograms (a cinch to lift into the car boot). And whilst it may be light, it’s big on extras, such as the extra-large cargo basket and the extra-large sun canopy. Optional extras include a carry cot, footmuff, Maxi Cosi carseat adaptor and a travel bag (brilliant if you are taking your pram with you on holiday). My favourite extra? The Snack Pack. A little bit of clip-on genius for the bumper bar – it’s essentially a built-in lunch box and includes compartments, a zip closure and is easy to clean.
  • Importantly, Bumbleride have gone the extra mile in creating fabrics that are best for your baby and the environment. Every Bumbleride pram is made with fifty per cent recycled PET exterior fabric (yes, recycled bottles!) and fifty per cent bamboo charcoal interior fabric. The exterior fabric is durable and will stay vibrant and the bamboo interior has excellent natural qualities like moisture absorption, temperature regulation, helps to prohibit bacterial growth, and is also soft and durable.
  • For twice the ride, check out the Indie Twin. Like the Indie, the Indie Twin is compact, it weighs just fifteen kilograms and has all the functional features and extras of the single. Notably, two Maxi Cosi carseat adaptors can be used with  the Indie Twin in a stepped configuration.

ScaryMommy.com – The 15 Things Veteran Mom’s Really Want To Say

March 11th, 2014

Scary mommy the 15 things verteran moms really want to say
Reading “The 15 Things Veteran Mom’s Really Want To Say” is a comical gem for mothers of all stages. Whether you’re pregnant or have already passed the toddler stage, we’re sure this article will make you smile. Needless to say, it had the Bumbleride moms laughing and realizing we were guilty of a few of them. -Bumbleride

Scary mommy the 15 things verteran moms really want to say

“Becoming a mother is like walking into a high school cafeteria. The cool moms, women who manage to get dressed and brush their teeth on a daily basis, sit at their own table. The moms who breast feed sit together, while the formula moms sit elsewhere. The sleep trainers swap stories at their table. The co-sleepers eat their lunches alone, so they can finally stretch out. The attachment parents wear their babies at the corner table. And everyone waits for a new mom to drop her lunch tray, so they can gasp and point fingers and roll their eyes at her missteps.

Well, this is the picture perpetuated by the Mommy War mentality, an archaic notion that reduces grown women to catty school girls. This analogy falls flat for too many reasons to count. We’re all moms, so we haven’t been served a meal in years, and we don’t know when we’ve eaten food that’s still warm. And given an opportunity to complete a sentence, most of us wouldn’t waste it on passing judgement especially on new moms.

The us vs. them mind set is the exception not the rule. When an “experienced” mom sees a “newbie,” the look in her eye as fruit loops cascade from the open van door is not judgement; it’s nostalgia and camaraderie. We’ve been there, and if a child didn’t need our attention “now, Mommy! Please, Mommy, please! Mooooooooomeeeee!” we’d say…

1. It’s totally normal that the car you used to get detailed on the reg looks like the place Goldfish crackers go to die. Just yesterday we found the remains of a hot dog beneath our seats.

2. We’re truly impressed you prepare healthful, organic meals everyday from scratch, but don’t beat yourself up if when you lay in bed reviewing what your child actually ate, you discover his calories came from pickles and Nerds. It happens.

3. We agree that the hands-down best high (no matter what you did in college) is the one you get from your baby laying heavy in a heap on your chest. Thank you, oxytocin. And no judgment here if you forgo a night out to cash in on the opportunity to cuddle up.

4. Don’t worry if you consider purchasing a taxi cab because you heard the plastic partitions can be made in soundproof material. We already looked into that.

5. There is nothing wrong with you at all if while cleaning the nursery in a few months, you tear up throwing away the nasal aspirators because your big girl can blow her nose all by herself. These milestones come out of nowhere……

6-10.  http://www.scarymommy.com/things-experienced-moms-really-want-to-say-to-new-moms/ .

We could go on and on because motherhood is the great equalizer, and we’re all just doing the best we can. Instead of passing judgement, we’re looking for strength in numbers. However, if you happen to come in contact with Judgey McJudginstuff herself, we fully support you thanking her for her insight while patting her shoulder with a hand that may or may not have poop under the fingernails.

Welcome to the club.” -Emily

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.
