Beach Cleanup #13 + Era Test Drive Recap

July 23, 2019

Thank you to Bumbleride owners, retailers, friends and community members for lending your hands in our beach clean up last week in Ocean Beach, CA at Tower 4. We set up some shade, equipped ourselves with reusable gloves, buckets and grabbers and set off to make a difference. Throughout our 2 hours of collective clean up, we saved the ocean from a ton of trash. Some of the most common items we picked up were plastic straws and snack wrappers, bottle caps, pieces of glass, cigarette butts (for parents to pick up), broken sand toys, cans, and much more.

Our goal with these clean ups is to help teach our little citizens and future generations how cleaning up after ourselves and limiting single use plastics prevent trash and debris from entering our oceans and disrupting sea life. Every little bit makes a difference. Plus, they see first-hand how they can make an immediate positive impact on their local environment.

This clean up, we were excited to bring along a pre-production model of our newest Bumbleride family member, Era (featured below on right). Our new 4-wheel reversible seat stroller made with a unique, eco-friendly cork handle. We loved showing it off and seeing the great response!

Stay tuned for the next clean up on September 21st from 9-12pm for Coastal Cleanup Day hosted by I Love A Clean San Diego. We would love to have you and your little ones join us! Stay tuned for the Bumbleride cleanup site announcement.

Mommy Loves Coffee – Be still, my heart. The 2013 Bumbleride features, changes, and a brand new stroller.


2013 bumbleride preview mommy loves coffee

One of my stops at ABC Kids was a hometown favorite of mine, Bumbleride. I always have a blast with the Bumbleride crew and that day was no exception. While visiting their booth, I got a chance to see the new colors and features for 2013 and get a sneak peak at the brand new Bumbleride Era stroller – coming mid-2013. It’s so new that I was only able to see a digital picture of the stroller and a list of its features. And I liked what I saw…

Let’s start with the new features and colors for 2013.

The Bumbleride colors are becoming more vibrant and bold, but still represent what Bumbleride is known and loved for – color mixed with comfort, eco-conscious materials, functionality and practicality. New fabric types and colors will be featured on the entire 2013 collection, beginning with the Indie in January.

NEW COLORS FOR 2013

  • Papyrus – a vibrant green with a soothing blue seat.
  • Cayenne – a two-toned spicy red.
  • Lotus Pink – a dark teal with a splash of pink.
  • Lotus Blue – a dark teal with a splash of blue.
  • (Lotus is available with a bright blue or pink canopy (packaged separately) and will be available through specialty retailers only.

NEW FABRICS FOR 2013

  • 50 percent of the exterior fabric is made using recycled PET (plastic bottles).
  • 50 percent of the interior fabric is made using bamboo charcoal.

NEW FEATURES FOR 2013

  • The new harness features a 5-point breakaway system that prevents entanglement and will be added to all models for 2013.
  • The Toddler Board accessory attaches with a clamp system and adapts to the Indie and Indie Twin models.

 

CHANGES TO THE 2013 INDIE

  • The slightly redesigned frame makes it more suitable for joggings due to the frame’s front footwell, which places weight further back on the stroller.
  • New easy to adjust footrest for infants (with buttons on the outside).
  • Deeper footwell for larger toddlers.
  • Comes standard with a foldable bumper bar and universal car seat adapter.
  • New fabrics and colors.
  • New 5-point break-away harness.

CHANGES TO THE 2013 INDIE TWIN

THE NEW 2013 BUMBLERIDE ERA DETAILS
As soon as I have pictures, I will share, but for now… let these details (and my word that it’s going to be awesome) hold you over.

SLIDE AND LOCK SYSTEM

The Bumbleride Era uses a unique slide and lock system to attach its seating components to its chassis. This new system provides the most lateral support possible, minimizing the seat’s movement on the frame. This results in a more durable system that will function better and last longer.

CUSTOM CONFIGURATIONS
The Bumbleride Era chassis is designed to accommodate a variety of seating options specifically formed to fit your little one throughout all stages of his early development. The system’s options consist of a lightweight aluminum chassis, infant car seat adapter, bassinet, modular/reversible seat as well as a lightweight soft seat designed specifically for larger toddlers. The new optional Toddler Board attaches to Era to provide a ride along feature for growing families.

FABRICS AND MATERIALS
The Bumbleride Era will be available in 6 bold color options. Each fabric option utilizes 50% recycled polyester exterior fabric and 50% bamboo charcoal interior fabric. The interior fabrics that touch baby utilize bamboo charcoal’s unique features like moisture absorption, temperature regulation and prevention of bacterial growth.

SUSPENSION
The Bumbleride Era’s 10” rear and 8” front wheels are supported by durable suspensions that make city walking as smooth as possible.

5-POINT BREAKAWAY HARNESS
The Bumbleride Era’s one-push breakaway harness is easy to adjust and separates into 5 components, helping to prevent your baby from becoming entangled.

Bumbleride 2013 Sneak Peek

Next year is expected to be a big year for Bumbleride! After a “new stroller hiatus” since releasing the Flite in 2010, Bumbleride is planning to debut the do-it-all Bumbleride Era. This modular stroller will be a one-is-all-you-need type of stroller. Little details have been released about the new  buggy but we wanted to share what we have. I did have the opportunity to see a sketch of the new stroller but Bumbleride isn’t releasing the image yet as it isn’t the final product. Here is what we know:
