Bumbleride Indie Twin

 I’m a big fan of Bumbleride strollers. They’re functional, maneuverable, and beautifully made. 

Best for: Parents of twins or kids close in age. Both seats independently recline flat with an adjustable footrest (perfect for small infants), and it can even be used with two Maxi Cosi Mico infant seats. (It’s compatible with a slew of other car seats — from Graco to Britax to Chicco — but only one at a time.) It’s surprisingly rare to have a double stroller that can accommodate two infant car seats. 

Not best for: Active parents looking for a jogging stroller to run more than a few miles each week. The Indie Twin is more geared toward light jogging. It’s also not best for tight, compact spaces (although the 29” width will fit through a standard door). It’s a luxurious ride, certainly, but not exactly storage friendly. 

Favorite features: Bumbleride has everything that I look for in a stroller: a full-coverage canopy (with SPF 45 protection!), smooth maneuverability, a large and accessible basket, adjustable footrests, an included cup holder, and capable wheels. In fact, these 12” air-filled tires are exceptionally capable for pretty much any terrain you can throw at it. It even has gorgeous color choices — like Aqua, which was new for 2012. And while it’s not a compact double stroller (weighing in at 34 lbs.), its size doesn’t feel bulky as much as it feels luxurious. 

The only bummer: The bumper bars no longer come standard with the stroller, although you can buy them separately for $35 each. 

Age/Weight limits: Newborn to 90 lbs. 

Buy from: Bumbleride, $690

2012 Bumbleride AQUA

The newest Bumbleride addition is this beautiful aqua color, available in their all-terrain Indie, lightweight Flite, and their double Indie Twin models. 

Perfect for: Anyone who wants a stroller that’s as pretty as it is functional. 

Highlights: I’m a big Bumbleride fan, and this summery aqua color makes me love them even more. Other than the color, the only big change on the 2012 model is that a bumper bar isn’t included anymore. 

Bumbleride also has a brand new Parent Pack ($24.99), which comes with dual cup holders and a zippered compartment that folds down with your stroller. 

Buy from Bumbleride $249.99 – $689.99
