First Thoughts: Bumbleride Flite Natural Edition- Mama Blog- “…I knew this was going to be a great stroller”

Bumbleride Flite Natural Edition review, umbrella stroller

For a new mom, I don’t think there is any product more exciting than a new stroller. I mean, lets face it, moms and dads today love to be out and about with their new baby. A good stroller is essential!

I was so excited today to receive a gorgeous Bumbleride Flite stroller in Walnut.

As soon as I opened the box, felt the material, looked at the wheels (very important) and put it together, I knew this was going to be a great stroller.

The Bumbleride Flite is the baby in the Bumbleride family. It’s Bumbleride’sversion of an umbrella stroller. It’s not too big, not too small. It only weighs 13lbsbut can 

hold up to 50lbs.
The stroller was extremely easy to put together. I had it assembled in 15 minutes.

So far, I’m very impressed with the way it moves. The thick foam on the handles. The brakes, the footrest and canopy.

I cannot wait to really put this stroller to the test and tell you all about it.

Watch for my full review coming soon. The best part? I’ve teamed up withBumbleride to give one away!!

More to come.

Bumbleride Flite Natural Edition review, umbrella stroller


Cool Mom Picks-“Bumbleride Indie Natural Edition – the stroller of our dreams”


“When I say I have found the stroller of my dreams, you’d better believe it.

Bumbleride Indie Natural Edition is that very thing, and here’s why.

[don’t miss a fabulous stroller giveaway after the jump!]

What are my requirements for the perfect stroller? First, glideability (if that’s a word). I want wheels that lock when I’m feeling sporty, and unlock when I want to take it slow. I want my passenger to feel cozy and content, even while maneuvering the most difficult of city terrain. I want air tires to help ithandle both dirt roads and potholes. And I want the thing to collapse with ease. Oh, and not weigh a ton.

Too much to ask?

Well Bumbleride delivers.

Every detail has been carefully executed. While the Bumbleride rolls like a chariot, it weighs in at just about twenty pounds. It is super easy to fold and unfold (promise, I did it several times). It has great storage space, and a super huge sun canopy and a sunroof, too. Score! Your wee one can be completely shaded and still feel the breeze through his locks. And the adjustable handle height means everyone in the family can take turns pushing the baby around. Mama needs a break too, right?

This is more than a mode of transportation for your sweet little babe; this is an eye-catching set of wheels. The fabric is an eco-friendly blend of recycled and bamboo fabric and it feels delicious. The 8 color options are lush and rich.

I am also delighted to tell you that a car seat adapter is not an extra accessory you need to buy. It comes with a bar that functions as a bumper bar or an infant seat adaptor, for major brands like Graco Snugride. (You do have to pay for a different one if you have a Maxi-Cosi infant seat though.)

The optional accessories are also way cool. We tried out the Snack Pack and the germophobe in me just loved it. My biggest pet peeve with snacks left out on a tray at any public place is all of the eager hands going in for the kill. Sure, it builds the immune system, but Bumbleride’s Snack Pack is gloriously enclosed. Phew.

Now on the down side, this stroller is a bit pricey, but I assure you you get your money’s worth. It is an investment that will happily stay strong no matter how uneven the sidewalk.

That being said, I always think about how mothers survive in NYC. This is not a stroller that you can easily carry down subway stairs and collapse in time to get on said subway. When you are paying so much money for a stroller, it should FLY down those subway stairs and make you a Bloody Mary. Just sayin.


Find the Bumbleride Indie Natural Edition online from Bumbleride. And thanks for the stroller provided for us to review and fall in love with. Which we did. ”

Flite Launch

We’ve been anticipating the arrival of our new Flite. It’s now shipping with a few new features including exclusive Bumbleride wheels. It’s also now available in our Movement and Natural Editions.

Oh Dee Doh- Bumbleride Natural Edition


“When you’re in the market for a stroller there are plenty of features to consider already, but now you can add “green” to the list. Bumbleride’s special second edition this spring features soft bamboo fabric on the interior and 50% recycled fabric on the exterior.

We’ve used a Bumbleride in the past and were quite happy with the rest of the features of this stroller, so the fact that this edition is eco-friendly is just one more check on our list.”
