HIGH STROLLER– After having their first child, husband and wife Matthew and Emily Reichardt went streamline chic to create the Bumbleride ($299-$389). The Point Loma couple turned to the more cleverly designed European carriages for inspiration, creating a top-of-the-line stroller that not only comes in fashion forward colors, but yes– it’s easy to fold and safe. Choose from three super-mod models: the Flyer, the 3-wheel Rocket and the Queen B in colors like Cosmo, a subtle turquoise, Bloom, a pinky coral and Bamboo, a mossy green, all designed in San Diego.
