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.

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!

Full Moon Calendar

Take a second to pause

With the new year comes a chance to adjust thinking and prioritize things in our life. Why not make a point to slow down and take notice of nature and our beautiful earth. Also allowing opportunities to teach our children to be in tune with our senses and give way to “Pause”. A perfect way to do this is to stop and look up more. Your kids will love it and it provides quality moments together in your day. Whether it be noticing the clouds together or being aware of the full moon calendar we are sure you will all benefit.

Built in Taiwan

January 13th, 2014
 

 

We recently returned from a visit to our factory in Taiwan where we were putting the finishing touches on Indie 4 and inspecting our first shipment headed for the German Market. We had some time to talk to the owner of the factory about manufacturing in Taiwan over a few cups of tea which is elaborately carried out at least two times a day. We thought it would be good to share why we manufacture in Taiwan when the majority of strollers are made in China.  

The factory that we have been working with since we founded Bumbleride is a family run factory in southern Taiwan. The father and owner of the factory started in the stroller business in the early 80′s when his children were still young. Stroller manufacturing was booming at the time in Taiwan due to the quality of craftsmanship, which it is still known for today. In the 1990′s and into the early years of 2000 manufacturing was making a shift to China to save cost and although most factories moved to China they decided to stay In Taiwan. What we like about manufacturing in Taiwan is that unlike China where huge factories that encompass all production exist, in Taiwan our factory uses over 50 local subcontractors who specialize in their field and thus support the local economy. Also, Taiwan is known for its performance bicycle manufacturing with many of the major factories based there. Because of some of the parallels in components, engineering and design we find we are able to leverage not only these but the highest level of production quality. We also make sure we save time to have a few local little ones stop by for product testing.

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!
