Cool Mom Picks – Bumbleride Indie Review

Cool Mom Picks Bumbleride Indie Review All Terrain Jogger Jogging

 

They say that it’s hard to improve upon perfection, but the newest Bumbleride Indie stroller has found a way to buck that concept. We have always loved this line of super sturdy and stylish wheels, and with the newest features, there’s even more to get excited about.

 The Indie actually shouldn’t just be called a stroller. It’s more like a stroller system that lets you stroll, jog, run, and most importantly, keep your precious cargo in the comfiest of settings.

I was immediately attracted to its overall look. Sporty and sleek at the same time, especially this new aquamarine shade. But there are so many features that you’ll come to expect as standards for any other stroller to follow because they just make sense and make you (aka, head pusher) the most comfortable.

Let’s start with the set-up. Right out of the box, it’s nice to know that there aren’t too many parts. Just the main body, the wheels and a couple of add-ons like an infant carrier accessory. The visual instructions (admittedly they initially scared me due to its lack of written words) are actually quite clear and will get you putting the stroller together with a few clicks, a turns and forceful pushes.

The ride is incredibly smooth, turning corners easily with its front swivel wheel (that also locks for when you’re jogging) and the cushy adjustable handlebars will suit pushers of any height (my daughter really enjoyed giving her doll a spin around the house).

The level of stroller sophistication you have come to expect from Bumbleride is evident throughout, with a few great updates. It’s still easy to fold down and is lightweight (around 20 lbs), but the entire frame has been redesigned for improved stability, which is always important, especially when you are pushing around littler babies. Plus I like the new footrest for kids which is one of those details you don’t care about until you have one. Plus? Good way to catch all those goldfish they’ll be dropping.

I also love that the stroller has become a little more eco-friendly, with all fabric being comprised of 50% recycled polyester and 50% bamboo charcoal.

The stroller’s canopy has an SPF of 45, which doesn’t get you out of putting on sunscreen, but it does add extra protection on those super sunny days. Now I did find the huge canopy a little tough to pull down; it felt at times to me like something was stuck. But I think it’s just designed to withstand the 8,405 times your kid grabs it and pulls it up and down herself.

The 5-point harness has also been redesigned to offer various points of buckling and unbuckling to make it easier to get your baby out with one hand– a feature that’s tormented so many of us in other strollers so I’m glad this one works easily.

While all these updates are grand, the new colors like Aquamarine, Green Papyrus and Cayenne Red will make you want to get one in every color. Well, not really, but it’ll be fun to choose from all the options.

Is the stroller pricey? Well, it’s not in Bugaboo territory, but the $500+ price tag certainly makes it an investment beyond the mass market brands. That being said, you definitely get what you pay for. While this probably isn’t the stroller that you’ll keep in the back of your car for grocery shopping and general errands, it’s the one that could certainly be the most reliable and robust of your stroller inventory, and will log hundreds of miles of good use over the years it will last (up to 45 lbs).

Just watch out: introducing this awesome Bumbleride Indie to your baby from the beginning will set them up to expect any and all future rides to be in the lap of luxury. Jeana

Support Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Win Indies in Vita!


                                                                                  Bumbleride Breast Cancer Awareness Month Giveaway

” The National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM) is a collaboration of national public service organizations, professional medical associations, and government agencies working together to promote breast cancer awareness, share information on the disease, and provide greater access to services.

Since its inception more than 25 years ago, NBCAM has been at the forefront of promoting awareness of breast cancer issues and has evolved along with the national dialogue on breast cancer. NBCAM recognizes that, although many great strides have been made in breast cancer awareness and treatment, there remains much to be accomplished. Today, we remain dedicated to educating and empowering women to take charge of their own breast health.” – http://www.nbcam.org/
