MomTrends Logo

From Target aisles to park trails, suburban moms need a stroller that can handle a variety of terrains and look good doing it. With its perfect blend of style and performance, the Bumbleride Indie takes the cake. The Indie’s rugged, all-terrain wheels provide a smooth ride for baby whether you’re on sidewalk, mulch, gravel or grass. An over-sized underseat basket (that you can actually access!) makes it easy to bring lunch to the park or load up at the farmer’s market. Suitable for infants to kids up to 45 lbs., the Indie’s interior fabrics is made of an eco-friendly bamboo blended fabric that naturally absorbs moisture and regulates temperature. Parents will love the adjustable handlebar, large canopy with peekaboo window, and ability to maneuver the 20 lb. stroller with one hand. The Indie also comes with a cup holder, foldable bumper bar and universal car seat adapter bar. Yes, it can work as a jogger, but serious runners may want to check out our Must-Have Jogging Stroller instead.

10 Ways to Reduce Your Family’s Footprint

April 22nd, 2014

Earth Day serves as a great reminder to make every day Earth Day. We wanted to share a few quick tips for reducing a family’s impact on the global community. Make sure to share the reasons for these activities with your little ones so they can learn how important it is to minimize our impact on the environment.

  1. Reduce water use and waste by:
    - Turning off the water while you brush your teeth.
    - Turning off the water while you wash dishes.
    - Wash your car with a biodegradable soap like this one, http://eagle1.com/enviroshine-car-wash in a location where runoff can go into landscaping or plants, not into the street or storm drain.
    - Taking a 5 minute shower or less.
  2. Eat local and seasonal food. Do you have a farmer’s market in your area?
  3. Grow your own vegetable or herb garden and plant fruit trees. Have your kids help with planting, harvesting and cooking. They might be more interested in trying what they helped grow, read more here http://eartheasy.com/grow_gardening_children.htm.
  4. Repair before buying replacements (clothing & tools).
  5. Start composting your leftovers if you have a backyard, http://www.wikihow.com/Compost.
  6. Carry a reusable bag in your diaper bag, purse or car for shopping and groceries.
  7. Reduce single use plastic water bottles by:
    - Use a filtered pitcher/dispenser/faucet like Brita, https://www.brita.com/. A single water filter can take the place of up to 300 water bottles. That’s enough bottles to make 21 exterior Indie fabrics! Learn more about our fabric here, http://www.bumbleride.com/strollers/our-fabrics.
    - Use a reusable water container like Nalgene, http://nalgene.com/.
  8. Reduce everyday plastic use like sandwich bags and juice cartons by replacing them with a reusable lunch bag/box and thermos/Nalgene. Skip Hop has some great options, http://www.skiphop.com/product/sandwichandsnackbagset.html.
  9. Bring a go-to-mug with you to coffee shops, smoothie shops and even restaurants that allow it.
  10. Volunteer for a local beach cleanup with the Surfrider Foundation, http://www.surfrider.org/ or other coastal conservation group.

We’d love to hear how your family reduces their footprint in the comments below!

Project Nursery – Spring Stroller Predictions for 2014 – By Eli Gurock of Magic Beans

Spring Stroller Predictions for 2014 Indie 4

Spring is a good season for predictions: predicting your baby’s gender, predicting the NCAA bracket or predicting when nice weather will actually come. And then there are business-related predictions: what stroller will be the next big thing? The UPPAbaby Cruz came out two years ago, and the Bugaboo Buffalo debuted last summer—there hasn’t been a “hot” stroller since then, but I think there are three big sellers on the horizon. Here are my stroller predictions for 2014.

When I saw the Bumbleride Indie 4 at the ABC Kids Expo in Las Vegas last fall, I immediately thought it was going to be a hit. Four-wheel strollers are very popular right now, and parents want all-terrain capability. Strollers like the UPPAbaby Vista and Bugaboo Cameleon have fantastic design and functionality, but they’re not truly all-terrain; the Bugaboo Buffalo is an awesome all-terrain four-wheeler, but it’s quite large and costs over $1,100, so while I love it, at that price point, it’s not for everyone.

Bumbleride Indie 4 Stroller

With the Bumbleride Indie 4, parents will be getting cool Bumbleride styling and four all-terrain wheels on a comparatively compact stroller. It merges a lot of qualities that customers are looking for in one stylish package.

My Baby Stuff – The Bumbleride Flite : a fantastic travel stroller – Video Review from Hawaii

April 11th, 2014


MyBabyStuff Blog

Bumbleride Flite ©MyBabyStuff.ca

My sister has always been a big proponent of Bumbleride.  I never thought one way or another because I didn’t get a Bumbleride as my ‘main’ stroller and well before now, it’s not like I had tried a bunch of strollers!  (My primary stroller is a running stroller as I’m a bit of a runner…) But… my thoughts certainly changed when I had the chance to review the Bumbleride FliteBumbleride’s umbrella stroller.

Even before I had my little girl, people kept telling me that I’ll need another, lighter stroller other than my running stroller to run errands and of course, for travel.  I actually kind of shrugged off that advice cause I figured the stroller I had was just fine.  Well, it was, until I received the Flite, which is a fraction of the weight of my running stroller… I’ve pulled muscles in my back and neck repeatedly lugging my running stroller in and out of my trunk just to run a few errands.  Don’t get me wrong, I love my running stroller but it’s not like I need to use it for all my little errands around town.

Bumbleride Flite ©MyBabyStuff.ca

The Bumbleride Flite is a whopping 14lbs (compared to my running stroller which is in the mid-to-high 20′s).  It folds up really compactly and has a carry handle which makes it easily portable.  When you receive it, it’s super easy to assemble – all you have to do is click in the wheels and the canopy and voila!  You’re set.

It has impressive features for what I always considered “just” a travel (or umbrella) stroller.  This is not “just” a travel/umbrella stroller…

Main Features:

  • It has a great 5-point harness
  • an adjustable footrest
  • an almost fully reclining seat (awesome for napping on the go!) and
  • an SPF 45 canopy (such a bonus… especially if you’re travelling somewhere sunny and warm)
  • The exterior fabric is made of 50% recycle PET and the interior fabric is made of 50% bamboo charcoal.
  • It has front and rear wheel suspension.
  • Includes a universal car seat adaptor

I know these are things that maybe most of us moms don’t really consider or think of… but when you’re pushing around your little one up to the toddler years, it makes a big difference.  The stroller rolls really well.  It feels super durable – not flimsy at all.

Some of my favourite features include the following:

  • the weight of the stroller
  • the reclining seat
  • the big canopy with SPF protection
  • thick-padded handles
  • good size basket

The Bumbleride Flite folds up easily and was super light to lug around!  I think I napped my baby in the stroller 75% of the time, so the reclining seat was a must.  I’ve seen lots of other travel strollers where the seats don’t recline, I’m really really glad that this one did.

The canopy is amazing, we would just wrap a muslin blanket around to give her full coverage for naps and we were set.  Another thing that a mom or dad may not think of when purchasing a stroller are the handles.  The handles on the Flite are padded really nicely – and you can tell that the foam they are padded with are serious quality.  I don’t expect to see any wear and tear in that department anytime soon.  As a matter of fact, my sister has the same travel stroller from 2010 and her handles are in top shape.

Lastly the basket under the stroller was very helpful – from holding my water bottles, to my sunscreen, so some personal items and even a bag at one point… it was useful to have the basket.

I would recommend the Flite to my friends who are looking for a compact travel stroller. The Flite retails for $269.99. It’s available on the Bumbleride website and at specialty stores across Canada and the US.

Babyology – Our Favourite Brands Spotlight: Bumbleride – Australia

all terrain stroller Australia Bumbleride

bumbleride 9 Our favourite brands   spotlight on Bumbleride

Ready for the pram that has wowed parents in Europe and America? Let us introduce you toBumbleride, the ‘baby mobility’ brand that’s delivering all the off-road ability of a multi-terrain stroller with the lean manoeuvrability of an urban jogger.

bumbleride 11 Our favourite brands   spotlight on Bumbleride

So exactly how is a Bumbleride pram different from the rest? Take a peek at the Bumbleride Indie – it’s not your average jogging, all-terrain stroller. Of course, all the standard features you would expect are there – fully swivelling front wheel with a forward facing lock position, brilliant suspension, a height-adjustable handle, a multi-adjustable reclining backrest suitable for newborns and toddlers, and accessories such as a rain cover, run strap and removable cup holder. But let’s get down to the nitty-gritty because it’s in the details that you will find Bumbleride really measures up.

bumbleride 10 Our favourite brands   spotlight on Bumbleride

The Bumbleride Indie is incredibly compact and weighs a tiny nine kilograms (a cinch to lift into the car boot). And whilst it may be light, it’s big on extras, such as the extra-large cargo basket and the extra-large sun canopy. Optional extras include a carry cot, footmuff, Maxi Cosi carseat adaptor and a travel bag (brilliant if you are taking your pram with you on holiday). My favourite extra? The Snack Pack. A little bit of clip-on genius for the bumper bar – it’s essentially a built-in lunch box and includes compartments, a zip closure and is easy to clean.

Importantly, Bumbleride have gone the extra mile in creating fabrics that are best for your baby and the environment. Every Bumbleride pram is made with fifty per cent recycled PET exterior fabric (yes, recycled bottles!) and fifty per cent bamboo charcoal interior fabric. The exterior fabric is durable and will stay vibrant and the bamboo interior has excellent natural qualities like moisture absorption, temperature regulation, helps to prohibit bacterial growth, and is also soft and durable.

For twice the ride, check out the Indie Twin. Like the Indie, the Indie Twin is compact, it weighs just fifteen kilograms and has all the functional features and extras of the single. Notably, two Maxi Cosi carseat adaptors can be used with  the Indie Twin in a stepped configuration.

bumbleride 6 Our favourite brands   spotlight on Bumbleride

Bumbleride prams are available in four colours – aquamarine, red, black or fog grey (with a fab red hood lining). The Indie is priced at RRP $699.95 and the Indie Twin is RRP $899.95.
