From a roller made out of rope to speedy strollers, the editors share their favorite gear picks of the month:
“This new jogging stroller has about everything one could possibly want or need to go running with your kid. It folds and unfolds easily, has a great suspension, plenty of pockets and storage, a generous canopy that unfolds to block out the sun from almost any angle and time of day, a magnetic peekaboo window to keep a quick eye on your passenger, a breakaway seatbelt design that allows quick exits when meltdowns happen, water-bottle holders and thoughtful touches like a concealed, compact air pump that’s there if you need it. Maybe the coolest feature, though, is in the front fork. You can make it swivel fully, or swivel only partially so that it doesn’t dangerously spin out—or, it can lock forward for when you’re running faster speeds. And while other fixed-front-wheel jogging strollers will frustratingly veer left or right, this stroller’s fork has a micro-adjustment feature to make it roll straight and true with the turn of a knob. It rides solidly and smoothly, and is a rare pleasure to run with among jogging strollers. The only thing conspicuously absent is a handbrake; Bumbleride says it was kept off in order to save weight.”—Adam Elder, managing editor

“Bumbleride is one of those companies that I just like.
Their mission is to bring beautiful, highly functional, well-made and eco-friendly strollers to the world. They are not a corporate giant, like most, and they have amazing customer service.
Unlike some brands that claim to be eco-friendly (ahem, Orbit), Bumbleride strollers actually are. They are PVC & phthalate free with no fire retardants and no polyurethane foam. Their fabric supplier is Oeko-Tex certified & a bluesign partner.
Their bread and butter, the Bumbleride Indie, has long been a cult favorite in the all-terrain stroller world. The Speed was introduced in March of this year (2016) to serve the population of joggers, runners, and outdoor enthusiasts who need a little more.
Their strollers are little pricier than most, but built to last.
Bumbleride strollers are constructed of lightweight yet heavy-duty aluminum. Yes, you can go buy a Baby Trend or a Schwinn for half the price — and they will rust out and end up in the landfill in a few years. With a higher-quality stroller like this, you can re-sell it (later on) for a high value knowing it will last for a very long time.
What sets the Speed jogging stroller apart from other joggers like BOB is a stylish, upmarket look that isn’t purely sporty. They are currently offering 4 patterns that are all subtle and sophisticated….Read more” – Meg Collins, Lucie’s List
We’ve got the need… for SPEED! The 2016 Bumbleride Speed jogging stroller from Bumbleride is perfection. It is durable enough to take on miles of trail running but comfy enough to be the only stroller you’ll ever need!
The most noteworthy feature is the Speed3 Steering. Most jogging strollers have two steering options; the front wheel fixed straight for long distance running, or a full 360 swivel capability for everyday use. Bumbleride realized that something was missing – an in between option! The Speed has a third setting that allows a 30 degree swivel on the front wheel. This is a perfect option for jogging curvy trails or neighborhood streets where you still need some turning allowance. The 30 degree limit is perfect for gentle turns but still sturdy enough at faster speeds. This Speed3 technology is only available on the Bumbleride Speed stroller. It truly allows your family to choose the pace!
The Bumbleride Speed jogging stroller is available now on PishPoshBaby.com in four stylish color options for $549 (FREE shipping) and includes the air pump, bumper bar and even a cute bell. Along with all of this, you get Bumbleride’s impeccable customer service and 3 year warranty. The Speed is an excellent choice for your family and will last for many years.
This is the first performance jogger from bumbleride, and we’ve had one for a few weeks in Denver. Big fans. And I’m not shocked because I am a huge fan of bumbleride.
The fabric is made from recycled water bottles, the stroller is PVC-free, it’s compatible with infant car seats, and holds 65 pounds. It pushes like a dream — much like all other bumbleride all-terrain strollers. I made this quick little video at ABC in Tampa to show you guys a few of the features.”- Jamie Grayson
If you’re having a summer baby, you’re a lucky mama-to-be; there’s nothing like welcoming your little one into a world filled with warm, sunny days. But, having a baby in the summer also lends itself to some pretty specific gear to help you weather, well, the weather. From nursery to neighborhood walks to weekends at the beach, here’s all your registry must-haves for that summer baby of yours.
2. Bumbleride Speed Running Stroller.
There’s no time like summer to get out there and get in shape, and with Bumbleride’s brand new Speed running stroller, you can do it with baby in tow. We’re loving this lightweight and durable stroller, which is not only sleek and stylish, but also made from eco-friendly fabrics and water-conserving dyes.$549. Preorder it here (due out later this month).
“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:
The Children’s Pool
The Cave Store
Sunny Jim’s Cave
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.
Places to Eat:
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.
“Lets face it, sticking to a work out schedule can be hard for anyone. Add four kids, two dogs and a bad back to the mix, and it almost feels impossible. The larger my world has become, the harder it is to exercise. However, It’s time I find ways to burn some extra calories now that my seven month old is finally giving me a good night’s rest.
Thanks to Brody’s new ride, Indie by Bumbleride, there’s finally some light at the end of my chaotic tunnel. I kid you not, the all terrain jogger has momma moving mountains… Okay, maybe not mountains, but I am certainly moving.
Bumbleride’s Indie all terrain jogger has set itself apart from the rest with its compact, lightweight frame. I can honestly say in the nine years that I have pushing strollers, this jogger has to be the lightest. It feels like I am pushing air, even on the toughest roads. It has the smoothest push out of all the strollers I have had. Dad agrees too. With Southern California being very hilly, this lightweight jogger has been easy on my back. I feel minimal pressure where it typically hurts the most when climbing those hills. The 12 inch air-filled tires are just the right size. And having all-wheel suspension makes this ride the Porsche of all joggers.
Even in the midst of a chaotic life, we are no strangers to lessening our carbon footprint on the planet. We did that by having the first dental practice in San Diego that is certified Green. I was happy to learn that Bumbleride cares about Mother Earth just like we do. Their fabrics feature a 100% recycled polyester (rPET recycled post consumer water bottles). This company is devoted to durability, safety and function, while simultaneously caring about the environment. As a mom who cares about our planet, I feel great knowing that this is my go-to stroller. It also gives me another opportunity to chat with my older kids about why they, too, should care.”

After two weeks with the Indie, I can confidently say that from birth to the toddler years, the Indie is all you need. I have thoroughly enjoyed this stroller, mainly because we are a very active family, and it was more than compatible with all of our outings. Whether trekking to and from Petco Park, onto the beach, or exercising on rocks and pavement, this is now our go-to stroller. I like to refer to it as the “perfect Schaffer lifestyle stroller”. Nine years ago when Jackson was born, we loved the Queen B Pram by Bumbleride. I am grateful to have had the chance to do this four times now — with my brood and Bumbleride.
