INTRODUCING: BUMBLERIDE ERA – The Tot

Bumbleride Era stroller in Matte Black in the city

As parents who know that parenting without the right gear in a city can be like taking on a White Squall on an ocean voyage, we couldn’t be more thrilled about the new Bumbleride Era. Built for all-terrain adventures, the Era makes city-life nothing but smooth sailing.

“There are numerous reasons why we already love anything and everything by Bumbleride.

  1. They’re owned and designed by parents who actually understand our wants, needs and wildest dreams.
  2. They’re dedicated to pursuing sustainable production methods and always opt for the cleanest option when it comes to choosing materials.
  3. They’re conscious of our children’s comfort, safety and growing bodies.

Known for ticking all the right boxes, Bumbleride has done it yet again with the Era Stroller.

While city-strollers need to have a small footprint (which the Era does – only 24.5” W), they also need to be extremely durable, ergonomically designed for parents of all heights, comfortable and safe for babies riding and able to carry your daily groceries, diaper bag, umbrella, older child’s scooter, and the family pet. (Okay, maybe not Spot.)

City-strollers are essentially a car and you need to know that they’re going to get you where you need to go efficiently and effectively. They need to be able to fit in elevators, cafes, and not take up an entire room in your home when not in use. It’s also nice when they look super sleek!

THE BEST FEATURES OF THE BUMBLERIDE ERA

  • It’s infant compatible without any attachments. (Car seat adaptor and bassinets sold separately if preferred)
  • It features a fully reclinable seat that can be both parent and forward facing.
  • The eco-friendly and machine washable fabrics are made from OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certified post-consumer PET water bottles, which means they are kind to the earth and your tot.
  • The adjustable handlebar is made from smooth and sustainable cork. Naturally non-toxic, it is one of the details we love most about the Era!
  • It has a single compact fold with auto-lock and self standing stow.
  • It comes with a super extendable UPF 45+ sun canopy. (Makes day-time naps a breeze!)
  • Secure foot break is even flip-flop friendly.
  • The storage basket can and will literally save the day.
  • Designed with air-filled wheels and all-wheel suspension for the smoothest ride.
  • It’s car seat compatible. The optional adaptors are compatible with Clek, Nuna, Cybex car seats and more. 
  • It comes with a three year manufacturer’s warranty.

Amazing all on its own, you can also get a sibling Mini Board to attach on the back, a rain cover, footmuff and liner for chilly days as well as a travel bag. Designed with your whole family in mind, the Bumbleride Era truly is the innovative stroller you’ve been waiting for.”

#4 Bumbleride Speed Jogging Stroller

“You need a stroller that has a smooth ride, an adjustable handle, a front wheel that can swivel or lock in place, and one that’s lightweight enough to lift up and put in your trunk. This one delivers. It’s also easy to clean, has great sun coverage for your child, and a five-point breakaway harness along with a bar to hold the child in.” —Sara Haley, pre- and postnatal fitness expert @sarahaleyfit  of http://sarahaley.com/.

The Ultimate Baby Shower Registry – Lost in LaLa

“With my due date literally right around the corner, I’m so excited to finally get to put all of the amazing items I’ve been gifted for Baby Girl Beech to use! When I first found out I was pregnant, I was completely clueless as to what products I would need to care for a baby. My friends and family would spew random information at me, which was super helpful but also extremely overwhelming and hard to take in. I’d make note of things mentally that stood out to me as items and products that would work for me and our family’s needs and lifestyle but when it came time to get organized and put together a baby shower registry, it was difficult to know where to begin! Cue, the registry guru who stumbled into my life at just the right time and helped me more than I could ever express! Monica Banks is the founder of Gugu Guru and now someone I’m grateful to call a friend. She is an expert on all things babies and children and was so crucial in my decision making when it came to products for our little one. Monica kept me organized, educated, prepared and above all else, made me feel confident that it was all going to be okay whenever I got overwhelmed or had questions. The guidance and careful thought that went into every category of baby products to suit our family was just brilliant and I’m thrilled she was able to take the lead on this blog post and share all the details of my baby shower registry with you today! Hope you enjoy!”- Shenae

Bumbleride Adventures with Tessa Byars

“Our kids have more impressive travel logs than many adults. In just the first two years of her life our daughter had traveled by plane, train, car, bike, skis, ferry, raft, and canoe and had been to over a dozen states and Canada. We never intended to be on the go so much, but work trips, weddings, family reunions and vacations kept us heading to the airport or packing the car every few weeks. Each time we went somewhere, we became more comfortable and confident traveling with our kids.

The first road trip we took was when my daughter was eight weeks old. We both were fortunate to have some time off work, so we set out on a winter road trip from our home in Ventura, California to our old stomping grounds in Jackson, Wyoming with our fingers crossed. As expected with an infant, there was plenty of screaming and many freezing cold, side of the road diaper changes and nursing, but we made it and we loved the experience. That was true with each subsequent adventure—there were always bumps in the road or turbulence in the air—but getting through them and figuring things out together was incredibly satisfying.

One of the keys to success traveling with two kids was having the right gear. We have a tendency to bring everything including the kitchen sink, so this was (and still is) always a challenge for us. By the time we took our second big road trip, we were well-traveled and knew that we just needed the essentials. We have found that the best gear, especially with kids involved, is durable, lightweight, multi-functional, simple, eco-friendly and of course it has to look good too. With our daughter, we took our Bumbleride stroller with us everywhere we went, and when our son was born we upgraded to a double. It certainly served as a stroller, but just as importantly as a luggage carrier, beach cart and instrument caddy—when there weren’t any kids in it.

I always imagined that with two children we would stay home more, invite family and friends to visit us and avoid flying at all costs, but when our son was eight weeks old, we set out on a 45-day road trip through California and Oregon. We had learned a few things from the first trip two years before, so we kept our travel plans simple, open-ended and planned to drive no more than about 200 miles every few days. We made more space in the minivan by adding cargo boxes to the roof, a bike rack on the hitch, and made sure the diaper bag, a change of clothes, food, and the stroller were easily accessible. Even though people told us we were crazy, and there were certainly times we wondered if that was true, overall it was such a fun adventure and the sweetest time bonding with the newest member of our family.” – Tessa
