Tiny Travels – La Jolla, CA – Chrissy Powers & Isobel Benesch

May 5th, 2016

We’ve partnered with Chrissy Powers and Isobel Benesch from belandbeau.com on a Tiny Travels series starting in La Jolla, CA. Follow their local travels and helpful tips! Enter to win your own Indie in their giveaway here, https://www.instagram.com/p/BE9Qim2Tg5f/?taken-by=chrissyjpowers. Ends 5/9.

“Welcome to Tiny Travels! I’m so excited about this new series because it combines two things I’m very passionate about: motherhood and travel. Before children I traveled all over; traveling opened the world up to me in a way I never knew existed. Relishing in the beauty of new places and cultures is something I want to pass on to my sons. I know traveling and children don’t always go together…I felt landlocked after I had my first son Waylon. However, once I started to put my cares aside (like how I look in public when he melts down…the fear of traffic…etc), I began to have fun no matter how challenging it was. My friend Isobel from belandbeau.com and I bonded over our love for travel and exploring with our boys; it really was only a matter of time before we teamed up.

Our hope is that Tiny Travels inspires you to see the world, explore your backyard, city or town and enjoy new experiences with your children no matter how hectic it may be. “- Chrissy and Isobel

Where They Went:

  • Juice Crafters
  • Tide Pools

La Jolla Travel Tips:

Parking can be tough so find a spot and then bring your stroller/scooter/carrier…. If you walk all the way along the coast from the Tide Pools to the Cave Store it can be a long walk for little ones so make sure to bring snacks.

Cuvier Park and Ellen Browning Scripps are great picnic spots along the ocean. If you want to grab a bite to eat in town, we recommend Burger Lounge or Puesta.

Best Baby Gear for Multiples – Bump Club and Beyond

April 26th, 2016

BCB Founder and CEO, Lindsay Pinchuk, shared must-have baby gear for multiples with Demetrius Ivory, WGN-TV meteorologist, on-air in Chicago today! Ivory and his wife, fellow WGN news anchor, Erin McElroy welcomed twins Hadley and Harlow earlier this winter.


Must-have baby gear for multiples on-the-go:

3. Bumbleride Indie Twin, $749: There are MANY stroller options for twins. For this one we turned to our friend and baby gear expert, The BabyGuy. His recommendation for a stroller system for twins: The Bumbleride Indie Twin (with two Cyber Aton 2 car seats.) The side by side option makes for easy access to the babies. Plus, the footprint is small enough that it will fit through the door, but not as cumbersome as many front/back stroller options provide.

Meet Speed, By Bumbleride

Guest Blogpost by Jacqui Saldana

I have teamed up with Bumbleride to help them celebrate the release of a new addition to their stroller line up. The newest set of wheels is a designated running stroller so aptly named Speed. Speed features a thousand cool things, a few of which I have highlighted below. I was lucky enough to be one of the first to hit the pavement with Speed. When I signed up for my  5K last month I was in need of a stroller equipped for running/jogging. I actually reached out to Bumbleride to see if I could test out Speed and was seriously delighted when they agreed! Being a momma of two, I know buying baby gear can be a bit overwhelming. Which is why I wanted to share with you what I loved most about Bumbleride’s Speed. Hopefully this post is coming to you at the right time, or can be passed on to someone who is in the market for a pretty bad ass stroller.

Let me first start this all off by saying I am in no way a professional runner. I’d say I’m more of a professional walker who busts into a jog when a good song comes on through my headphones. I do love a good running stroller, but the Bumbleride Speed sold me more on its lightweight and easy one step fold. Anything that adds ease into my daily life gets a gold star.

My favorites of Speed and a few photos below.

The thing I noticed right away was the smooth push Speed offers. I know what you are thinking! A stroller is a stroller. But really, Speed was designed to take on all terrain which I am guessing is why the push is so soft. I was thrilled about this mostly because Mila is still really tiny. Though we 100% got clearance from her pediatrician on her being able to join me on a jog. I was still worried about her in there. With very little neck control I didn’t want her flopping around. Through out the smooth ride Mila was able to enjoy herself as best a baby can. She slept every. single. time. we used this stroller.

We were able to adjust the 5 point harness snug to fit her small body. (she currently is 11 pounds 25 inches) And with just one click the straps released and we could pick up Mila from the stroller pretty easily. Easy. Easy. There is theme. I love things that are just simple. 1, 2, done.


When we first got to see Speed it was at Bumbleride HQ. One of the first things that was shown to us was the handle bar. “Feel the handlebar!” At first I didn’t think much of it. But after using it in my race I found its smooth rubber grip to be extremely helpful. Of course, now I can’t remember what exactly that rubber is called. I do know it is PVC free and the entire handlebar adjusts up or down. Which is SUPER awesome since I’m tall.


Speed has an oversized sun canopy that offers SPF 45. If it doesn’t cover enough of baby, you can extend it further. I love this photo because one, Mila’s tiny feet kicking out. And two, shortly after this photo was taken Mila spit her pacifier out and it landed on the ground. Dan tried to grab it quick but kicked it and the pacifier fell into the ocean. We both started to laugh, then Mila started to cry so we packed up and left. It was pretty funny.

Lesson learned.

Pack more than one pacifier.

Even though I mentioned my favorite thing about this stroller was its one step fold…I lied. My favorite is actually the bell that comes installed on the side of the handlebar! I rang that puppy 24/7. It came in handy during my race. We also walked to grab ice cream and when the ice cream parlor called out our number for next to order…I rang my bell. I love that thing!


Who looks better. Guy who has great running form OR Mom who has terrible running form, but one seriously cool stroller? 😉

In all honesty Speed is pretty great. Aside from what makes it a great stroller it did something more for me. It made me fall back in love with running and working out. I think that is what really makes this a great piece. The comfort and functionality of Speed inspires me to get outside and do something healthy for myself. I kind of loved that Mila was lulled to sleep every time we used this stroller. It allowed me to stay out a bit longer. Work out a bit harder. It isn’t always easy finding baby gear that fits the bill for both mom and baby. I am thrilled to report that this stroller exceeds in all areas. Most importantly in helping mommas have the freedom they need to get out, work out and be the best for their baby!


Thank you Jacqui for your awesome blogpost and review of Speed!

9 strollers we can’t wait to see in 2016 – Babycenter – Bumbleride Speed Running Stroller

March 4th, 2016

9 strollers we can’t wait to see in 2016


It’s been two years since my second daughter was born, but in strollers, this was eons ago. The stroller landscape has COMPLETELY changed since then. The new makes and models come with incredible functionality and superhero-like capabilities, making life for any parent easier than ever. With spring (and walking/running weather) around the corner, here are the strollers to watch for in 2016! –Lindsay Pinchuk of Bump Club & Beyond

Bumbleride Speed: Known for its all terrain models, this brand new stroller is Bumbleride’s first designated running stroller. It’s lightweight, durable, and equipped with advanced steering to let you run at your own pace. (Bumbleride, $549.99, pre-order available soon).

Best Strollers for Twins – Lucie’s List – Indie Twin Stroller

March 4th, 2016



Indie Twin Papyrus Green

  • Price: $729.99
  • Stroller Weight: 34 lbs.
  • Weight Limits: 90 lbs combined

Higher up the food chain is the beloved Bumbleride Indie Twin; if you can afford it – it’s a “must-have” say many of our twin parents. Yes, I feel like this stroller was specifically designed with twins in mind.

The Indie Twin is an all terrain, side by side stroller with four (12″) air filled tires that rides like a dream. Not only is it utilitarian, it’s also very beautiful and eco-friendly. If you can splurge on one pricier item for your twins, this would probably be my vote. Please read the FULL review of this stroller here.

The Bumbleride Indie Twin can take two car seats at the same time as well as two carrycots ($159 ea) — your choice!

For car seats, it uses a dual car seat adapter system ($39 each piece — one “upper” and one “lower”). It ONLY works for these seats: the Maxi Cosi Mico/AP (not the NXT), Cybex Aton or Cybex Aton 2. See more on this here.

If you are sold on this stroller, make your life easy and get two of these car seats^^  (unless, of course, you are past the car seat stage, in which case it will work regardless).

Note also that these car seat adapters must be removed to fold the stroller, which is mehhh. They are easy to remove, but still. A slight pain.

Other favorite features include ample storage for your gear (x2), amazing canopies, luxurious fabrics, and an adjustable handle for tall or shorter than normal parents. This is one of the few side by side strollers that doesn’t have a bar bisecting the storage basket, so you can actually fit quite a large bag down there.

The main complaint of this stroller is the folding; it’s not the easiest to fold and requires a little muscle-ing down in order to get it to lock. The same goes for unfolding it. That’s probably my only complaint.

Bottom line: The Bumbleride Indie Twin is a beautiful stroller with a super smooth ride. Unlike most, it takes two infant car seats or two bassinets, so you can use it from birth. The fabrics are luxurious, the storage is amazing, and the canopies are large. Outside of the non-optimal fold, we loveeeeee it!

Crocodile Baby Stores – Why We Chose Bumbleride Strollers

December 14th, 2015

Why we chose Bumbleride Strollers for Crocodile Baby

We are now available at Crocodile Baby with stores in BC, Canada. They recently wrote a great blogpost about why they chose Bumbleride strollers. This is an excerpt from that blogpost.

“We are very picky about what strollers we sell. Every one of them has to have great maneuverability, great durability, and be backed by great after sales service from the manufacturer. We have just added Bumbleride to our list, with the Indie, the Indie twin and, coming soon, the Speed a lovely jogging specialty stroller. Here are several reasons why we have chosen this manufacturer:

The Air is Guaranteed.

Bumbleride is the only stroller company that provides a 1 year warranty on the inner tubes and tires on its strollers.

Green Fabric.

The fabric is made of recycled PET bottles and from bamboo based fabric…

A Lighter Stroller

The Bumbleride Indie is 25% lighter than its “active stroller” competitors. I  know this because I took my trusty Luggage Buddy scale and picked up each of our strollers on display (pictured above). While my device may be off as to the true weight, the relative weights of strollers is the right way to consider the “How heavy is the stroller?” question….

Made in Taiwan

Bumbleride’s factory is in Taiwan, not China. This is not a really big deal but it is nice to know the strollers are made in a smaller, family-owned factory with a real interest in making high quality products….

Getting Even Greener

In early 2016, Bumbleride will launch its new running stroller the “Speed”. Coincident with that, all of their strollers will use fabrics that have drastically reduced water consumption during the production process while improving the colour fastness. The process creates an 84% energy savings which results in 67% less CO2 emissions. How is this done? I understand it is due to the process dyeing the thread before it is made into fabric, much like the Crypton process waterproofs Clek seat fabrics. Is this a big deal?…

Safety and Health

The fabrics used in all Bumbleride stroller are Oeko Tex certified, which means they have been tested for 110 toxic substances and none have been found….”

Environmentally-Friendly Company Unveiling New Products and Innovations

October 18, 2015 (San Diego, California) – Attendees of this year’s ABC Kids Expo are racing to the Bumbleride booth for a glimpse of the company’s highly-anticipated running stroller, the latest addition to their family of high-performance, environmentally-conscious strollers.

The first designated running stroller to join the Bumbleride family, Speed is designed to perform, no matter the athletic adventure. Totally versatile, Speed features Bumbleride’s new Speed3 steering which includes the following 3 modes:

1: Locked for running or training
2: 30-degree swivel for jogging or all terrain
3: Full 360-degree swivel for the city

Speed also includes all air filled tires (16” rear, 12” front) for maximum performance, comfort, and convenience, and an all-wheel suspension for the easiest push in its class. Weighing in at 23.5 pounds (including wheels and canopy), Speed measures 49”L x 25”W x 39.5”H when standing and 33”L x 25”W x 15.5”H when folded. A 20.5”L x 14”W backrest, 10”L x 14”W seat, and 13”L x 13”W foot well support kids safely and comfortably for years, and, with a handle-height range of 33.5”-44”H, Speed can be configured for the ergonomic comfort of almost any parent, as well.

In addition to the launch of Speed, visitors to Bumbleride’s ABC booth will also go ga-ga for best-selling strollers Indie and Indie Twin, all grown up with new-for-2016 updates. New features include a patent-pending hinge with 1-step fold system, single-lever recline, and redesigned handle; all new colors and fabrics; and auto locks.

Renowned for their unique, on-trend color palette, Bumbleride will also reveal new-for-2016 colorways, including a specialty retail exclusive color, at the ABC show. New colors include:

Matte Black – All black fabric and frame

Ever committed to reducing the environmental impact of their manufacturing processes, Bumbleride has also announced a change in fabrics.

Bumbleride’s fabric is OEKO-TEX and Bluesign certified, ensuring the elimination of harsh chemical substances, the conservation of valuable resources, and minimal environmental impact.


Now available in 19 countries, brand-new Speed and updated versions of Indie, and Indie Twin will be available in Spring 2016. Visit the proud parents at Bumbleride and view their newest additions at booth #6139 at the ABC Kids Expo October 18-21 in Las Vegas, NV.
