Congratulations to Aly Tyefisher Hodgson on winning the 2010 Bumbleride Winter Photo Contest! Here is her Bumbleride experience:
“The Bumbleride Indie was recommended to me when I was 6 months pregnant by my little sister. She doesn’t have children so had no real reason to recommend the Bumbleride except it was the best looking stroller she had seen. We did some research and everywhere we looked Amazon, Baby Gizmo, Toy’s R Us all agreed the Bumbleride Indie was the stroller to have. I am a huge believer there is no single stroller for everyone, you have to find the one that works for you and your family. And the Indie is the one for us. Every aspect of the Bumbleride has met or exceeded our expectations. I love that the stroller is so versatile. One of the features that make it so versatile is the inflatable wheels. I am so grateful for the inflatable wheels and that the front wheel can be locked into place which allows the stroller to be just as wonderful in strollercize classes as the shopping at the mall. The Indie can handle fresh fallen snow in Alberta, Canada as well as the beaches of the Pacific Ocean. It travels great by plane, as well as 2 week long road trips. I know it can handle all these things because we have done it. Wherever we have been in the last 2 years it has come with us.
Not only has the stroller itself surpassed my expectations but so has the customer service. Anytime I have had a question I can just ask on their facebook fan page and get a quick response. I have emailed customer service with a question regarding the front wheel and they responded right away and help me solve the problem (which was a user error, not a malfunction).
Another feature I love about the Bumbleride are the accessories, the foot muff (very important in Alberta, Canada) and the Snack Pack are two of our favorite. I was uncertain about the snack pack but it just makes the stroller. In our winter photo you can see it but my son brought along 9 little bath animals to keep him company on his walk. It is the perfect size for a drink, snacks or bath toys J And easy to clean.
As a mom I know how hard it is to know your making the right choice especially on something as important as a stroller. When friends ask I always recommend the Indie. Two years later my sister is pregnant and I told her she just has to get the Indie not only because it’s the best looking stroller you’ll ever see but it’s the most practical one too!”
