Gear review: The Bumbleride Indie Stroller


The Bumbleride Indie is a fabulous stroller.  Gorgeous colors, light, easy to use, great ride and delivered complete with everything you need right in the box. The Indie offers a smooth ride and a comfy seat for your child plus is a joy to push. It’s such a smooth and easy ride that you might just feel like running, I did.  Rated for light jogging, you’re all set if you want to take a jog in the park and it will not let you down if you ever need to chase down a rogue toddler. No wobbly wheels here, this stroller will take you anywhere you want to go in style.


I tested an Indie with 3 of my children, 9 months & 20 pounds,  23 months & 25 pounds and my hefty 40 pound 3 year old. All three loved the stroller and no matter who was on board or where we went, it was effortless to push.   We rolled over bumpy terrain, broken sidewalks, popped curbs, took very long walks and a few quick runs, darted through crowded streets and visited the Farmer’s market. The canopy is so amazing that we had no need for the rain cover when it started to pour and my 3 year old loved the privacy it gave him when he pulled it all the way down. Pushing one handed was not a problem, so even with my heavier 3 year old on board I could easily hold the hand of another child or carry a cup of coffee or answer my cell phone. He’s very tall, built like a tank and started filling stroller seats before he hit 2, but he had ample room in the Indie. Despite the generous space for my 3 year old, everything adjusted right down for my 9 mo old as well and she loved the adjustable footrest. All three riders were easily accommodated and loved the ride. I truly love everything about it.

You will be at home in the country or city, a true all-terrain stroller with city sensibilities, and you will love the features. Rear suspension, 12” air filled tires, lockable swiveling front wheel, adjustable handlebar that allows for a very long stride, included cup holder and rain cover are just some of what the Indie offers. The canopy is incredible and pulls all the way down to the bumper bar, has a zip off back for extra ventilation and a peekaboo window plus a handy zippered pocket that will hold your wallet, keys or cell phone. A slight 20 pounds, it folds compactly and has a very handy carry handle as well. Suitable from newborn to 45 pounds, this stroller will take you wherever you need to go. It is also car seat compatible with a wide range of car seats and includes the necessary straps. Optional accessories include the a Carrycot, Footmuff, Travel Bag, and the very handy Jam Pack and Snack Pack. Available in Lava (black), Ruby (red), Seagrass (green), Spice (orange) and Vita (pink), the Indie retails for $469.00.
