With the recent birth of my 3rd child, I was in desperate need of a double stroller. I took the task of choosing the perfect double stroller very seriously. In fact, almost too seriously; I asked friends for recommendations, I borrowed friend’s strollers, I scoured the internet for consumer reports and I drove myself and my family crazy with my stroller indecisiveness. I knew that I wanted a jogging stroller because we are always on the go and out and about. Other than that, I needed a lot of help making a decision.
When it came time to purchase a double stroller I chose Joggermom to make the purchase from. Joggermom has a large selection of the best strollers on the market. Even more than that, Kelly Morse, founder of Joggermom is a mother of 4 and a jogger. She has real life experience managing kids and strollers and craziness all while being active; I could relate and I trusted her opinion. I loved that she has honest and experienced reviews for each of the strollers she sells on her site. Kelly Morse has been in the jogging stroller business for over 5 years! Joggermom is also easy to navigate and offers free shipping for orders over $99, no sales tax too!
My stroller indecisiveness journey had lead me to choose between a BOB Revolution SE Duallie Stroller and a Bumbleride Indie Twin Original Stroller. I chose the Bumbleride because I fell in love with it when I read about it online and when I tested a friend’s Bumbleride out for myself. It is sturdy enough for the track that I walk on every week, classy enough for the mall, small enough to fit in my trunk and it maneuvers like a dream. Made possible by the dual front swiveling wheels-its maneuverability is my absolute favorite feature of my Bumbleride.
Born out of San Diego in 2004 by a husband and wife team, Bumbleride has brought an intuitive style with a twist of class to the stroller market. This intuitive design is what made the Bumbleride stand out for me. It is easy to fold, easy to open and easy to carry and store.
Other features that sold me on my Bumbleride are the super large SPF 45 Sun Canopy that reflects heat and the large storage basket. Having an easily accessible and large storage basket was at the top of my list, having 3 kids requires lots of stuff. I also love the 12’ air-inflated tires, I can push over the bumpiest of bumpy stuff and it doesn’t bobble the kids around like other strollers, I love that.
Since purchasing a double stroller was not only an expensive decision for me but also a stressful one, I am happy to report that Kelly Morse of Joggermom was patient with my incessant needy questions and she even help guide me to making a decision on which stroller to choose. I strongly suggest you check out Joggermom for your next stroller purchase.

Choosing a pram can be the toughest decision of them all. You could end up going round in circles literally. It’s almost like choosing a new car! You’ll use it practically everyday, everywhere in every way so you want to get the right one for you and your bebe plus look stylish at the same time. Yeah yeah you know it.
So weigh a few things up..
We wanted an outdoorsy pram of course with the “intention” of jogging off the extra kilos gained during pregnancy. It needed to be sturdy yet stylish and perhaps practical if possible at the same time. I was willing to shop around to get the best price without sacrificing these specific factors.
Here’s what super dooper pram we bought for Baby Budge and why:
Introducing the BUMBLERIDE Indie!
But>>>>> The BIGGEST point of all is its PRICE! I found this beauty while checking out the ‘Baby Jogger’ online. The Baby Jogger is quite similar in features, is available in Australia BUT sells in America for literally HALF the price! So after discovering these significant savings I checked out other overseas brands/companies who ship internationally and the Bumbleride Indy emerged!
Bumbleride will be coming to Australia.. pop by their facebook page for raves, I’ve already converted two of my mates who absolutely love it too

If you are in the market for a lightweight, versatile, all-terrain jogging stroller–we suggest you look no further than theBUMBLERIDE INDIE! This stroller is amazing!
The Bumbleride Indie is a multi-personality stroller and is compatible with every facet of your complex lifestyle– It’s stylish, sleek appearance makes it an ideal stroller for shopping trips and outings with friends, while its off-roading capability and 360 degree swiveling front wheel make it your perfect jogging partner.
An ideal stroller for newborns and infants, your Bumbleride Indie will grow with you and your child. The Indie is compatible with several leading car seat brands, is equipped with a 5-point harness, an infant headrest and infant shoulder pads.
What I LOVE most about my Indie is how easy it is to fold and store! The Indie weighs only 20 lbs, making unloading and loading easy as pie! With a click, fold and lift you are packed up and ready to go. And your Bumbleride Indie will fit in the smallest of spaces for storage!
The Bumbleride Indie is adjustable at the backrest and footrest, is equipped with an over-sized SPF 45 sun canopy and an adjustable height handle.
When I am looking for a stroller, I am not only looking for how it performs, but I want to know how much can it store! Because let’s be honest, your kids are 50% of your baggage–the other 50% consists of diaper bags, lunches toys, etc. So we put the Bumbleride Indie to the storage test– the beach test!! The spacious cargo basket at the bottom was able to hold our towels, lunches, sand toys, and my diaper bag so that I could be hands free all day!
From beach trips and casual walks to morning runs and hikes, the Bumbleride Indie is just what you need.

our morning walk. i missed it so. the last few weeks of my pregnancy weren’t prime walking days. nor were the first couple weeks after ours baby was born. but slowly, i worked back up to it and i’m happy to say we’re back in our groove and taking our morning walks – on new wheels to-boot.
i realized that little bonzo probably missed our morning strolls as much as i did. it was what we did. and then that changed on top of a million other things. so we’re both feeling better to be back in the swing of things, i know.
it’s a ripple-effect of radness to be sure. first, i’m exercising. hoo-ray. second, we’re back in our routine. third, and most important, it’s seriously special time for me and bonz. see, baby sister gets tucked in snug as a bug in a rug in the stroller’s bassinet attachment and gets to gaze up at the trees then drift off to sleep (sounds pretty heavenly to me) and bonzo, with a little something in hissnack-pack, and i have time to chat and watch the world go by as we walk our loop. we throw a leaf in the creek from the bridge as we leave and then return into our neighborhood and then visit and remark on the same landmarks each day – the fountain in a front yard, the jeep parked at that house, the stone tortoise in the garden, the tractor mower that we saw mow the field a year ago. some mornings he’s happy to quietly sit back and see what he sees and other mornings he’ll talk from the second we’re walking down the driveway until the second we return but most mornings are a mix of the two. well, mostly talking with a smidge of silence if we’re going for accuracy.
what i love about it is that it’s a nice little stretch of time that we both have each other’s undivided attention and we can just talk about whatever. on top of all the things i can count on us talking about, i love hearing what he comes up with totally out of the blue and what’s on his mind. we get to talk about all the stuff he’s most interested in and i love it because i’m not trying to do six things at once while trying to pay attention to what he’s saying about the gardener with the backpack leaf blower that looks different than our gardener’s backpack leaf blower. its just so nice not to have to ask him to wait a minute or to – sigh – half-listen while i’m distracted changing a diaper, nursing the baby or one of the other zillion tasks that eat up our days.
we can’t make it every single day though i try. and sometimes baby sister’s fussed and made our otherwise peaceful walk anything but. but for the most part, it’s my favorite part of the day. our favorite part of the day.

Bumbleride must have gotten the memo that parents want a spot to set their water bottle (or baby bottle for quick access!) and a place to put essentials like a smart phone or small wallet on their stroller. Yes, U.S. parents walk around with drinks! Gasp! Sure, they have that cup holder that comes the Bumbleride strollers but sometimes you need more.
Enter the Bumbleride Parent Pack.
Void of all the bells, whistles and hoopla, this parent console has dual bottle holders and zipper pocket that gets the job done. And the best thing about it? It can stay attached when you fold the stroller! Plus, it fits all Bumbleride Strollers (you can use two on the Indie Twin!) and even other brands we’ve tried.
The Bumbleride Parent Pack retails for $24.99 and is available now. If you want to take a peek at it up close and personal, watch our brief VIDEO spotlight below:
Looking for a new ride for your little one? You’re in luck. Just like we did in the winter and spring, it’s time to round up the best new stroller releases of the season. Your favorite brands haven’t necessarily reinvented the wheel this season — but they came pretty close.
From a lightweight double umbrella stroller to the most innovative jogging stroller ever made (seriously — if you don’t believe me, read on!), here are the hottest new strollers to know about.
2012 Bumbleride AQUA
The newest Bumbleride addition is this beautiful aqua color, available in their all-terrain Indie, lightweight Flite, and their double Indie Twin models.
Perfect for: Anyone who wants a stroller that’s as pretty as it is functional.
Highlights: I’m a big Bumbleride fan, and this summery aqua color makes me love them even more. Other than the color, the only big change on the 2012 model is that a bumper bar isn’t included anymore.
We love Bumbleride strollers and gear. We’ve featured their stuff quite a bit because it is consistently fresh looking with updated features, colors and the kinds of accessories that actually get used. Plus their customer service is just–well, nice!
Back in 2010, we reviewed the Bumbleride Flite, and were really impressed with what we saw. Now, the 2012 model takes a great thing and makes it even better.
[don't miss your chance to win your own Bumbleride stroller from Cool Mom Picks!]
Bumbleride has updated their wheel system which means that the stroller really glides and will make maneuvering in crowds a little easier. I wish that it came with a bullhorn, but I get the limitations with that feature.
That’s not the only change. The sun canopy is SPF 45, which I find so rad. There are also two fabric options including Movement, which is great for active moms and dads on the go. The fabric is water- resistant and adorably sporty. The exterior is made of recyclable material and the interior is a bamboo blend which keeps your baby cool, wicks away moisture, and is antimicrobial to boot.
As far as accessories, I really like the Flite travel bag, which makes our job as parents just a little bit easier. Plus there is an optional parent pack with a place to put drinks. That’s water bottles, not mojitos. Although the stroller does make me feel like celebrating, just a little bit. -Eva
