Bumbleride Indie Twin Double Stroller Review – Thoughts By Brandi

“I just want to start by saying that this post is NOT sponsored by Bumbleride but I have a deep love for our Bumbleride Indie Twin double stroller that is so worth sharing with all of you. It is hands down my favorite double stroller for day-to-day use, walking around town and tackling tough terrain. The Bumbleride Indie twin can handle just about anything you throw at it and we couldn’t be happier with our double stroller.

Not only is this my preferred stroller, the Bumbleride Indie Twin is the babes preferred stroller as well! It’s tall, the shade is huge, and the ride is so smooth. Because we’ve mostly given up napping, we often walk to the park and picnic and then walk home and these two always fall asleep on the walk home. It’s the perfect “put your baby to sleep” stroller. If I know we are going to be some place where I need the babes to sit quietly and comfortably in a stroller for any extended period of time, the bumbleride is my go-to.

There are so many reasons why I love this stroller… it’s not only my favorite for the babes, but it’s my favorite for myself. It’s surprisingly difficult to find a double stroller that can go over just about any terrain with two 3 year olds in it while I push with one hand and drink my coffee. The Bumbleride Indie Twin glides over just about anything with ease, which makes pushing it more enjoyable, and less like a chore.

Here’s a list of reasons why I am such a fan of the Bumbleride Indie Twin.

-One-handed push

-Tough rubber grip for running and standing fold (won’t tear like foam handle bars)

-Standing slim fold (the smallest among all other double side by side strollers) please note that if you’re going from a single to a double, this stroller will still feel big but compared to other side by side all terrain strollers, it is in fact the smallest/most compact!

-Removable and washable fabric, even the canopies can be taken off and washed!

-Slim design, fits through all standard doorways, even the tiny ones in old buildings!

-4 wheels vs 3 which makes for more stability and smoother stroll!

-All wheel suspension (a must have for coffee runs)

-Air filled tires, sometimes this is a pain but for the most part, we don’t have issues and it makes jogging and trails so much smoother

-Appearance, it’s sleek and the color options are amazing, we have the Maritime blue and love it.

-Storage, the biggest storage basket on a side by side double, two storage pockets on the backs of each seat and two zip storage pouches on the backside of each canopy! Also a little toy or water bottle storage on the inside of each seat for the kiddos to use!

-Easy add on glider board, I will say, sometimes the glider board gets in the way but if you take smaller steps, it’s not a big deal! Extends the life of the stroller making it easy to use with 3 kids!

-Lay flat design so can be used from birth without any add ons… you can buy the bassinet but you don’t have to!

-Adjustable foot rest, so great for napping and for little legs!

-Extended canopy!

If you use your stroller often and for long distances, this is the stroller for you! I don’t think this is a great stroller if you’re a speed runner but for the average jogger like myself and my husband, this has met all our running needs.

There are a few things I wish this stroller had, mainly a decelerating handbrake for our extremely hilly neighborhood but because it’s so light and easy to push, it’s also easy to navigate down hills. We have logged miles upon miles on this stroller and it is still going strong. From photography walks to beach trips, the Bumbleride Indie Twin has yet to disappoint us.” – Brandi

The Tot – A Guide To Twin Strollers

The Tot recently shared their guide to twin strollers featuring Indie Twin. Thank you for the shout out The Tot!!

“Preparing for the arrival of twins can be exhilarating and terrifying at the same time. When I found out I was pregnant with my set, I already had a feisty two-year- old to contend with and the thought of having three under the age of three terrified me. I had no idea how I would even manage to leave the house let alone cart them around from park to playdate. It turns out that the secret is in the stroller. Before you impulse-buy a sexy model with all the bells and whistles, make sure you’ve identified your needs. Do you want a high-performing stroller that will allow you to power walk with the other moms in your neighborhood, a compact model you can easily throw in the car for weekends away or an easy-to- maneuver one that will make shopping a breeze?…”

“Can’t decide between a traditional side-by-side and a jogging stroller? The Bumbleride Indie Twin Stroller offers the perfect middle ground. This versatile model features four wheels like a traditional stroller, but its all-wheel suspension and easy one-hand push make it ideal for jogging and walking on any terrain. The backrests, footrests and handle are fully adjustable for a customized fit, and the fabric is made from 100% recycled plastic.”

Do What You Love – Elaina Bellis

Freelance Art Director

Twin Mama

Bumbleride Adventurer, Elaina Bellis

 

How has your role as an art director and model evolved since becoming a mama to twins?

My role as an Art Director has been pushed to the back burner for now since becoming a mother! My role as a model has become much more busy since becoming a mother of twins! So many people want to shoot the girls with me! It’s so much fun!!!

What activities fill your cup with gratitude?  How has your perspective changed since becoming a parent?

I am an avid hiker! Being with nature fills my heart with joy and gratitude going into each day. I guess if I am able to go hiking now with twins, I feel lucky that I am getting time to myself to be able to do it! I don’t get a lot of solo time anymore! So I am super grateful when I do!

As a busy mom of young twins, when do you find time to do things for yourself and how do you keep that a constant?

James is really good about letting me get time to do yoga, hike, or go for a run! Also, each week we both get a night off to hang with our friends! We are also really lucky to have family who are kind enough to watch the girls so we can have date nights from time to time! I always feel like when I really need some “me” time I am able to have it! I am lucky!!!

“This is seriously the best stroller EVER! A game changer for our family!!!!!”
