Bumbleride Natural Edition - Indie Ocean Stroller Review + Giveaway

With summer quickly approaching, I'm sure you're starting to plan vacations as well as making a list of "must-haves" that you need to take with you. If you have small children, a stroller is absolutely a necessity. I have had the opportunity to review many strollers over the past few years and Bumbleride is one of my favorite brands. The quality always exceeds my expectations and they have many of the features that I've come to expect in a stroller. They recently sent me the Bumbleride Natural Edition - Indie Ocean Stroller.

Bumbleride is an innovative lifestyle company that creates baby mobility products for today’s modern family. Founded in 2004 by Matthew and Emily Reichardt, new parents at the time, they were met with disappointment while shopping for a stroller for their daughter. This noticeable gap in the stroller market led the Reichardt’s to do what most would not: they set out to design and manufacture their own line of high-quality, modern strollers with eye-catching colors and innovative features. This led to the Natural Edition collection available spring 2011.

Natural Edition is a product of Bumbleride’s passion for the environment as well as the use of innovative materials. It features a blend of recycled and bamboo fabrics tailored to give your little one an ultra-soft touch. The seat lining of Natural Edition is woven using a soft fiber mix, including bamboo, which has the natural ability to absorb moisture, regulate temperature, and inhibit bacterial growth. The exterior fabric is made with 50% recycled material. This Bumbleride collection was inspired by and designed for the eco-minded parent looking for a more refined fabric and aesthetic. Natural Edition is the first edition from Bumbleride to offer recycled and natural fabrics and offers what eco-minded and refined design-focused parents have long been waiting for.

Here are the pieces that it arrives in.

The Indie is incredibly adjustable. In the first picture you see the handle all the way up, the seat sitting all the way up, the canopy back, and the footrest down. The second picture shows the handle down, the seat all the way down, the canopy down, and the footrest up(perfect for if you're using an infant carrier).  There are infinite possibilities between the two extremes.

Here is a picture from the back. As you can see, there is a large storage area at the bottom - perfect for heading down to the beach, pool, picnics, etc where you need to carry several things with you.

The back part of the canopy can be unziped and pulled back for more of a breeze on hot days, or just to see your baby a little better.

The wheels are awesome. It features a 360 degree swiveling front wheel with forward and rear facing locking positions. Indie's rear wheel suspension and 12" air-inflated tires, keep you rolling over any type of terrain. This stoller was made for vacations! I have taken many strollers out on the beach and if the tires aren't large, then it won't make it in the sand.

As always, safety is key, and the Indie has a five-point safety harness.

Folded up, the stroller is 32"x15". There is a carry strap to easily tote it with you and a bar that hooks on to keep it folded until you release it. The stroller weighs 20 pounds and has a weight capacity of 45 pounds.

The Indie is packaged with a multi-use bar which can act as a bumper bar or a universal car seat adapter bar. It is compatible with these infant seats -
- Graco Snugride
- Graco Snugride 32
- Graco Snugride 35
- Peg Perego Primo Viaggio SIP 30/30
- Chicco Keyfit 30
- Combi Shuttle
- Baby Trend Flex Loc
- Britax Chaperone

I am thrilled that it has a cup holder for the parents, but I've had issues with it on my past bumbleride strollers. If it brushes against anything, it often turns sideways - knocking your drink onto the floor. We have had countless spills because of this. I wish it had a cup holder that was permanent and couldn't move or come off.

As always, I'm very happy with this Bumbleride Stroller. I'm very excited that they've come out with "environmentally friendly" fabrics for their strollers. I like that it sits up a little higher than some of our others - kids always like sitting up. I do wish that it was a little lighter and a little more compact, but if that was the case, then the storage basket and wheels wouldn't be as large. I really enjoy having such a large storage space.

I would love to take the Indie to Walt Disney World this summer. I have a 1 yr old son who would be perfect for this stroller and since it is only 20 lbs, it is great for traveling on the WDW buses and also the wheels would be great for rolling through the crowds of people.

Where WOULDN'T I take this! I love how compact this is. My summer ride of choice is my Mustang and space is a PREMIUM in that car. We are also a mere 40min drive from Lake MI so this stroller would see a LOT of lake time.
