When Matthew and Emily Reichardt had their first baby, like us, they looked for that perfect stroller. They loved the beautiful designs coming out of Europe, but the prices were almost as much as an airline ticket to get there! The Reichardts also wanted something more stylish than the big box store brands that were everywhere, but with the same convenience features. And so they began taking notes.

A year later, in 2004, Bumbleride was created. Matthew and Emily came up with a stroller that had fabulous European streamlined design, fashionable colorful fabrics, plenty of parent amenities and priced within the mid-range budget.
This husband and wife team think about how to transport your baby from one point to the other with ease and safety. They think about the logistics, especially in urban settings such as using public transportation, going up stairs into apartments, or getting your stroller in and out of a car. Its function changes as your baby gets older. A newborn has different needs than a toddler and each Bumbleride product takes this into consideration in its clean and simple designs.
Your Bumbleride Stroller – Now eco-friendly!
The materials used in each Bumbleride stroller is now more eco-friendly than ever. Beginning in 2013, Bumbleride has since been using recycled plastic water bottles as part of the materials used in the exterior fabric. About 14 bottles are used with the production of the Indie.
Interior fabrics are made with bamboo charcoal, where the particles are infused with polyester. Bamboo charcoal has beneficial properties such as moisture absorption, anti-bacterial and temperature stability. The fabric in the seating area is soft and comfortable for your baby. Soft, cushy, and sustainable.

The Bumbleride Indie 4 is for those who want a rugged all-terrain stroller as well as one that is super using for everyday errands. Because of the extra air-inflated tire, the weight on the Indie 4 is 22 pounds vs. the 20-pound 3-wheel Indie. It also has a higher weight capacity, accommodating 55 pounds. The all-wheel suspension system gives your child a smooth ride, whether on bumpy trails or along a city sidewalk. It’s a very versatile stroller, and other than the weight differences mentioned above, it’s the same as the 3-wheel Indie, so you should read that review for more on the stroller.

It’s going to give your newborn complete protection while you are out and about. The seat reclines completely, and your bassinet sits right on top. Or if you prefer to use your car seat, an adapter, included with purchase, will accommodate Graco, Peg Perego , Chicco and Britax.

One of the most popular all-terrain double strollers, the function, quality and colors of the Bumbleride Indie Twin are hard to beat. First off, this is a fantastic stroller for twins because it accommodates two infant car seats or carrycots. If your two children are different ages, everything on this stroller can be customized to fit your child’s needs. Adjustable big sun canopies, easy-fit padded safety harnesses, leg rests and multi-position reclining seats give each child optimum comfort.
The Indie Twin is rather narrow for a side-by-side stroller. At only 29-inches across, access through doorways and aisles are a breeze. Parents, you get many cushy features, too. Adjustable-height handle bar, a generous storage basket, and 12″ inflatable tires give a smooth ride and effortless push.
Reviewers rave about how well it goes over different terrain, from beach sand and grass to rough trails. They love all the color schemes to choose from, and are constantly getting compliments.
