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!
