Review: Bumbleride Indie Stroller Buying a stroller is like buying a car. It’s a big investment and you want to make the right choice. Mike and I hemmed and hawed over all the different options out there… do we want all terrain wheels, or a city stroller; one with ample luggage space or one that’s compact and lightweight?

We avoided the decision altogether for the first 6 months of Griffin’s life by buying an inexpensive yet pretty effective stroller frame that his car seat easily plugged into.

But as Griff continued to grow, we knew we had to make a decision. So the research began. And it was frustrating. We couldn’t seem to find just the right stroller. Like Goldilocks, this stroller was too big, that stroller was too small, this stroller wasn’t good on multiple surfaces, and that stroller was just plain ugly. LOL!

And then…. Mike stumbled upon the Bumbleride Indie Natural Edition stroller. And like Cinderella, the shoe fit perfectly!

Here’s what’s so great about the Indie…

It’s the only stroller you need from infancy to toddlerhood with a standard baby seat adapter
It has an adjustable seat that gives you a lay-flat option (great for serious baby napping)
It also has an adjustable leg rest for your growing baby and an adjustable handle bar for mom who’s 5’5 and dad who’s 6’1
It has a large cargo space so mommy can run serious errands and store her stuff
It has a serious canopy that gives you FULL sun protection
It’s all 12 inch wheels and rear suspension gives you great mobility on everything from cement to stones
Its front wheel locks, perfect for jogging. It also contains a jogging strap for greater flexibility
It’s “lightweight” at 20 pounds compared to other jogging strollers
It folds up and comes apart like a dream
It’s made in the USA and the company was started by new parents who knew what parents wanted in a stroller
In particular, the Indie Natural Edition, includes:

50% recycled materials are used for the stroller’s fabric
50% of the seating material is made out of temperature-regulating and eco-friendly bamboo
Comes in a warm, chocolate brown and rich lapis blue color
My only complaint is that it doesn’t have a kick stand or some other type of apparatus that allows you to set the folded up stroller vertically. We installed a hook near our backdoor where we hang the stroller and solves this issue perfectly.

If you’re in the market for a new stroller, be sure to check the Indie Natural Edition. At nearly $500, it’s definitely an investment but it is the only stroller you need from newborn to toddler. Plus, we’ve seen firsthand how comfortable Griffin is in this ride. We love it. And we’re so very thankful to Bumbleride for the chance to try it out. Mama Natural gives it her seal of approval!

RubyLovesRocket says:

I was in NYC last week and saw one of these strollers [it was the Indie Twin] and it was so cool! The woman I was walking near had no trouble at all maneuvering curbs, crowds or doorways and she had it set so one side was for a toddler and the other side had a bassinet…I immediately made a mental note of the name and [whenever I get around to having children] will definitely get one.
