The Baby Cubby Blog – 5 Best Baby Strollers for Summer – Indie

Thank you Baby Cubby for including our Indie! Here is an excerpt from their article…

#1) If you are a family that enjoys a wide array of activities you will probably want to consider the Bumbleride Indiealso available as a double. This stroller is the BMW of jogging strollers and is known for its all terrain capabilities. With its large air filled tires this stroller makes it easy to push while jogging and walking on sidewalks as well as rocky trails.  Featuring a deep recline and adjustable foot rest, this stroller is more suitable for small babies than other all terrain strollers because of its excellent recline. There is no need to store multiple strollers in your garage when you have an Indie since it will fill all of your stroller needs.  Cameron and his family (The Baby Cubby Founder) frequently use this stroller and they love that the seats recline almost completely flat and the canopy provides more shade than almost any other stroller.  The Bumbleride is great for all day trips to activities like theme parks.  We also love the fun and vibrant colors that are available including; Aquamarine, Fog Grey, Green Papyrus, Lotus Blue and Lotus Pink .

Magic Beans – Spilling The Beans Blog- Bumbleride Indie 4 vs. UPPAbaby Cruz

June 17th, 2015

Bumbleride Indie 4 vs. UPPAbaby Cruz

Magic beans recently highlighted the similarities and differences between our Indie 4 and the UPPAbaby Cruz. Here is an excerpt from that feature:

The Bumbleride Indie 4 and the UPPAbaby Cruz are very similar strollers on paper; they’re both close in weight, size, and longevity. But there are a few key things that can truly make a difference.

Before we get started, here are the basic specs on both of these popular stroller models:

Bumbleride Indie 4 Stroller

  • Weight (when empty): 22 pounds
  • Max Weight: 55 pounds
  • Tires: Air-filled
  • Included Accessories: Bassinet, bumper (belly) bar, universal car seat adapter, and cup holder
  • Price: $599
  • Longevity: birth to 5 years

UPPAbaby Cruz Stroller

  • Weight (when empty): 22 pounds (frame only: 16.5 pounds)
  • Max Weight: 50 pounds
  • Tires: Foam + air-filled
  • Included Accessories: Belly bar, rain cover
  • Price: $499 -$529
  • Longevity: 3 months (or birth if you purchase bassinet or Snug Seat) to 5 years

The Indie 4 (named after its older brother, the Indie, but with a fourth wheel) comes with almost everything you need in one box. It comes with the bassinet, so you can use your stroller from day one. Or, if you prefer to use your stroller like a travel system (it’s so convenient when you’re transferring your baby from the car to the stroller!), just use the universal car seat adapter* and pop your car seat right on there. Between the bassinet, the cupholder, and the adapter, it comes with absolutely everything you need except for a rain cover.

Ok, so we don’t love switching between the bassinet and the regular seat, and we don’t love removing the canopy – neither of these processes are as straightforward as they should be. However, these aren’t things you’ll be doing often. And if you need help, just drop by our store and we’ll do it for you – we’re the pros!

As for the push: those chunky air-filled tires give an incredibly smooth ride. When we took our all-terrain models out for our Winter Stroller Test Drive Challenge, the Indie 4 made a very good showing. Air-filled tires require some minimal maintenance, so you’ll just want to familiarize yourself with how they work and be prepared to pump tires and repair flats. A few tips:

  • DO NOT overinflate.
  • You’ll be able to feel when they’re getting low on air – pump them up as soon as you can.
  • Keep a spare inner tube on hand, because 9/10 times, that is what will need to be replaced if you have a flat. If you’re in a pinch, bike stores that sell kids’ bikes will have tires and inner tubes in the right size, though.

Another thing I love about Bumbleride is their customer service. While UPPAbaby is legendary for their customer service, Bumbleride may actually have them beat: I once emailed them about a broken piece, and got a response and a tracking number for the replacement piece in less than 5 minutes. I don’t think I can say that’s ever happened to me before, whether I’ve been on a personal or professional mission. This is a brand that really stands by their strollers and cares about their customers….

Price might be another consideration for you, although these two strollers are in roughly the same bracket. For the sake of comparison, let’s say you chose the Chicco Keyfit as your infant car seat. What would you spend on either stroller to get the same amount of stuff?

Indie 4 ($599) + rain cover ($34.99) = $633.99

Cruz ($499) + bassinet ($199) + adapter ($44.99) + cup holder ($24.99) = $767.98

I, personally, am an Indie 4 fan: it’s light, it rolls so smoothly, it’s compact with good tires, and it comes with just about everything you need. But the Cruz is a tough contender, with some serious advantages. Ultimately, you’re going to want to get your hands on both strollers and give them a push to see what you think. Come on in to any Magic Beans store and give them a try! -Chelsea, Magic Beans Brookline

Babycenter – 9 Bright Strollers You’ll Always Spot in a Crowd

9 Bright Strollers You’ll Always Spot in a Crowd

“Outside of the gym class where I take my toddler, there is a sea of strollers parked in a tiny vestibule. Trying to find my black umbrella stroller with a tired-out little one at my heels is perpetually vexing — and makes me want to slap neon electrical tape onto the handlebars. Had I thought of this everyday conundrum when I was stroller shopping, I would have eschewed basic black for something a lot more colorful and distinctive.

Whether you, too, yearn to be able to grab and go without snatching the wrong ride, or you just love bright, punchy colors, consider these nine happy-hued options.”- Liz Krieger @ Babycenter

Moms Who Travel with Style

In honor of Mother’s Day, CNT chatted with bloggers, photographers, and moms Mimi Thorisson of Manger, Emily Harteau of Our Open Road, and Elise Hanna about their travel essentials, their favorite trips, and where they’re going next. This is an excerpt from the original. Read the entire article via link at bottom.


Emily: Raen sunglasses for me, Ergo pack, Bumbleride Flite stroller for airports and if we are going anywhere with sidewalks, and Ultra Violet Kids clothes so the girls look great.

Mimi: My sunglasses, a brand-new notebook, and music to listen to. Also a Nuxe travel-size pouch; it contains all the essential products when traveling (you can get them in French pharmacies).

Elise: My camera, one or two good versatile cotton scarves (which can be used for anything from a picnic blanket to a baby-changing pad, head covering or skirt), my iPhone, and a journal or simple notebook.

Babycenter – 11 Luxe Strollers That Are Really Worth It – Indie 4

11 Luxe Strollers That Are Really Worth It

In life, there are things you want and things you need. Strollers straddle that line. You need one, that’s for sure, especially if you’re a city dweller.

But if you’re going to be pushing something around day in and day out for several years, you want it to be as easy on the eyes as it is to maneuver. You want a thing of beauty and luxury, not just utility. That’s where these 11 standouts come in. Consider them the SUVs of strollers: multifunctional and a bit showy but for many families, the perfect marriage of want and need.

“The Bumbleride Indie 4 Urban All Terrain Stroller with Bassinet can cruise over any bump with barely a jolt, thanks to air-filled tires and all-wheel suspension. It’s got a cushy seat and an adjustable handlebar, backrest, and footrest — so both baby and parent are comfy; $600.” -Liz Krieger

Lucie’s List- Best All Terrain Double Stroller – Indie Twin Review

April 8th, 2015


Indie Twin Aquamarine

Best All Terrain Double Stroller – Indie Twin Review

“The Bumbleride Indie Twin is a cult favorite.

The four GIANT air-filled tires make it feel like you’re pushing a cloud (one-handed, even), which is a difficult claim to make for a double side-by-side stroller of this bulk. Speaking of size, this stroller is 29.5” wide, which will get through a standard door frame (but not with the cup holder on the side, oops!)….

Both seats recline independently and nearly flat, so you can use it from birth, even without a car seat or bassinet. The seats have adjustable leg rests, which are especially great for infants, and the total weight capacity is 90 lbs, or 45 lbs in each seat.

Bottom line: The Bumbleride Indie Twin is a favorite among twin parents and parents of two, especially those needing the giant tires that can plow through anything. While it’s not great for jogging and requires some muscle to fold, this stroller tops the charts for beauty, storage capacity, suspension, ease of pushing, and usability. Let’s not forget Bumbleride’s excellent customer service. Hurrah!” -Meg Collins. Read the entire in-depth Indie Twin review at .
