Take the Ride of Your Life with Bumbleride and Joggermom by Sarcastic, Funny, and Brutally Honest

With the recent birth of my 3rd child, I was in desperate need of a double stroller. I took the task of choosing the perfect double stroller very seriously. In fact, almost too seriously; I asked friends for recommendations, I borrowed friend’s strollers, I scoured the internet for consumer reports and I drove myself and my family crazy with my stroller indecisiveness. I knew that I wanted a jogging stroller because we are always on the go and out and about. Other than that, I needed a lot of help making a decision.

      Joggermom, Kelly Morse, Bumbleride Indie Twin, Jogging Strollers

When it came time to purchase a double stroller I chose Joggermom to make the purchase from. Joggermom has a large selection of the best strollers on the market. Even more than that, Kelly Morse, founder of Joggermom is a mother of 4 and a jogger. She has real life experience managing kids and strollers and craziness all while being active; I could relate and I trusted her opinion. I loved that she has honest and experienced reviews for each of the strollers she sells on her site. Kelly Morse has been in the jogging stroller business for over 5 years! Joggermom is also easy to navigate and offers free shipping for orders over $99, no sales tax too!
My stroller indecisiveness journey had lead me to choose between a BOB Revolution SE Duallie Stroller and a Bumbleride Indie Twin Original Stroller. I chose the Bumbleride because I fell in love with it when I read about it online and when I tested a friend’s Bumbleride out for myself. It is sturdy enough for the track that I walk on every week, classy enough for the mall, small enough to fit in my trunk and it maneuvers like a dream. Made possible by the dual front swiveling wheels-its maneuverability is my absolute favorite feature of my Bumbleride.

Born out of San Diego in 2004 by a husband and wife team, Bumbleride has brought an intuitive style with a twist of class to the stroller market.  This intuitive design is what made the Bumbleride stand out for me. It is easy to fold, easy to open and easy to carry and store.
Other features that sold me on my Bumbleride are the super large SPF 45 Sun Canopy that reflects heat and the large storage basket. Having an easily accessible and large storage basket was at the top of my list, having 3 kids requires lots of stuff. I also love the 12’ air-inflated tires, I can push over the bumpiest of bumpy stuff and it doesn’t bobble the kids around like other strollers, I love that.

I strongly suggest you check out Joggermom for your next stroller purchase.

Transworld Surf Magazine Indie Twin Double Stroller Review

“The Bumbleride Twin saved our lives!

At first when our second baby was an infant, it was amazing to be able to attach the carrier to one side and have our 2 year old chilling on the other side. My wife and I took the Bumbleride everywhere. Now our youngest son is almost 1 and our oldest, 3 and half and it’s our daily utility vehicle of choice! Disneyland, the beach, parks, everywhere! It folds up easily and fits in my Prius as well as my wife’s SUV.

After almost two years the stroller is holding up perfectly, still rolls like a dream, looks perfect, and is as mechanically sound as it was the first day we got it. Truly an amazing piece of equipment.”

Jeromey Clary Chargers Stroller Bumbleride Indie Twin
“Thank you… Thank you…. Thank you Bumbleride for making a GREAT stroller, that not only fits the kids and all of the gear that goes along with a 3 year old and a 6 month old, but more importantly for our family… A stroller that my husband enjoys pushing.  My husband Jeromey Clary, right tackle for the Chargers, is 6’6″ and this is the only stroller that has ever been adjustable to his height and mine.  The boys love it… It is a stroller that our 3 year old son doesn’t want to get out of…Seriously.   Living in Sunny San Diego, we love the canopy for the added sun protection.  Best of all it is big and sturdy enough for the 2 boys on a long run, and even easier for me to fold up and go.  It is a GREAT stroller!!!!!” – The Clarys

Your first baby stroller: invest in a bumbleride

For all you modern moms and dads out there struggling with the biggest consumer decision we make as new parents, listen to those who have come before you, and invest in that top-of-the-line stroller. You know the one, it’s more expensive than you’re comfortable with. Yes, that one.

Some questions you may be asking yourself:

  • How often are we really going to use it?
  • Winter is cold where we live; won’t it sit in the garage?
  • Wouldn’t lesser brand work just as well?
  • Are we just paying for the logo? What’s the real difference?
  • Shouldn’t we save some of that money and put it towards baby’s college tuition?

The answer is simple in my book: Invest in that stroller!

Modern moms and dads live on-the-go. Whether you’re a working parent, or at home full-time, none of us wants to be stuck at home. From the first happy days of pregnancy, most of us picture the stroller as a vehicle of freedom, allowing us to hold on to the bits and pieces of our fabulous lives before baby. Coffee dates with friends, weekend shopping trips downtown, brunch at our favorite neighborhood restaurant, exercise routines, and even vacation travel — all of these will be more difficult to navigate with baby in tow.

Here lies the importance of the stroller

A great stroller buys you the freedom to take baby with you from point A to point B, with less stress, less sweat, and fewer tears. One of the most common questions I’m asked at the park is, “How do you like your stroller?”

My answer: I love it. My choice is the Bumbleride Indie Twin Double Stroller (retail $689).

Here’s why: It’s lightweight, extremely durable (we’ve been over broken glass, busted sidewalks, and even down stairs when there was no other option) and easy to maneuver. The streamlined design can fit two kids side-by-side and still fit through narrow doorways.  After a rainy day at the park (it comes with a rain cover, by the way) or a sandy summer day at the beach, the fabric spot-cleans with little effort. My husband likes pushing it, and he’s 6’3” (some strollers are surprisingly low to the ground). With one quick turn of a knob, the wheels can be locked in place for running, and then released for the full 360-degree swivel needed to steer in and out of my favorite boutique shops. And best of all, I can push, and even turn with one hand, if I happen to be carrying a jumbo latte.
