Nat took the Bumbleride Indie Twin 2016 double stroller for a spin and she reviews it all here for you. This newly updated model is a fantastic option for twins! Check out all the details below and visit Bumbleride.com to learn more.
Hey, guys. It’s Natalie Diaz from Twiniversity. Today, we are here in the beautiful New York City hanging out in Soho and checking out the brand new Bumbleride Indie Twin stroller. Let’s take a look.
This infant compatible double stroller will work with newborns. These seats do fully recline. However, if you feel a little bit more comfortable feel free to buy the car seat adapters. This is one of the only double strollers on the market that can accommodate two separate car seats at the same exact time.
Bumbleride has always been a Twiniversity favorite. Do you know why? Please, I’ll stop the suspense. Let me tell you. It’s because it has real air tires. Not air light tires. Not air free tires. I mean, these are legitimate air tires.
When you have twins, especially fraternal twins (not that it’s not an issue with identical twins), but when you have paternal twin’s odds are that your twins are going to have the size to discordance. It’s also known as having one larger baby versus the other. If you have a stroller that has true air tires you basically just take it to the bike shop, have them adjust the pressure and you could push straight a 100% of the time. If not, often, you’ll veer to the side of the heavier baby.
This stroller is full of features. For example, the five point harness system. This is not your typical five-point harness system because it has a quick release and it ensures that your baby is never going to get their skin caught in this little clasp. It has a cover for below and a cover for above making sure that these little guys don’t irritate your baby’s skin.
Now, let’s talk about these canopies for a second. These canopies have built-in 45 SPF. They are extraordinarily long. But, wait, there’s more. There’s an additional pop out that gives you just a little bit more sun protection, which is perfect especially if you are going to be using this stroller with newborns.
If you want to take a look at your babies, open up this little peek-a-boo magnetic flap, so it’s not going to blow in the wind, and this little mesh insert is going to allow to see your babies totally uninterrupted.
If you want to keep the flap open, Bumbleride has gone one step further and they’ve added a little attachment so I could roll it up and click the flap open so that the babies have ventilation and I could see them 100% of the time without this ever blowing closed.
Want even more access to the babies? When the seats are in the reclined position unsnap the back panel, you’ll have an air vent and access to the baby right there.
I’m pretty sure that I can leave the house for the day because this stroller has storage galore. Take a look at all these different storage options. We have storage in the little back pocket. Sure, these are little pockets, but they will hold the tons of pacifiers or the keys to your house and you’ll find them easy. Next we have two huge storage pockets on the back of each seat that’s plenty, plenty, plenty of room to hold diapers, wipes, and whatever else you need.
But wait, there’s more. There’s one more little sneaky pocket right here on the side of each chair perfect for sippy cups or snacks. Need yet more storage? No worries. Bumbleride makes an additional parent pack that is an add-on accessory. This is great for holding two sippy cups and it also has a phone storage with a headphone jack so that you could put your phone here and your headphone’s there and you’re well on your way.
Wait, there’s still more. There’s yet another outside pocket for holding whatever you like. The parent pack is an additional upgrade and can be found nationwide on Bumbleride.com.
Now did you know that this stroller can be used for jogging as well? Because it has the availability to lock the front wheels and it has this wonderful parent strap! You attach the strap to your wrist and you are able to jog and go and never worry that the babies are going to be on the loose.
Bumbleride uses 100% recycled polyester in all of their strollers. Did you know that 44 post consumer water bottles are used per stroller and they are providing an ultra soft texture? It’s PVC and phalate free, never using fire retardants, never using polyurethane foam.
The Bumbleride Indie Twin is available in many different colors like dawn gray, maritime blue, tourmaline, red sand, and camp green.
These seats recline really easily. With one touch, you squeeze the lever, pull down, and the seat drops down flat.
Many companies force you to buy the additional attachments. Bumbleride gives you two bumper bars right in the box. These are totally foldable and they’re actually removable. The bumper bar cover also comes off and is machine washable. If your babies want to chew on this, let them chew away you could throw it in the machine and clean it right up.
How do we fold the stroller? It’s a few steps. Step one, you fold the bumper bars down. Second, you make sure that the wheels are not locked into place. Third, you lock the foot break. Fourth, fold the triggers up and you fold the stroller over. Grabbing the handles that are back here, the stroller will lock into place.
Worried that the stroller isn’t going to fit in your home or doorway? Rest assured it is only 30 inches wide so it will fit through every standard doorway. It is a little bit on the heavier side though, weighing 36 pounds. Kind of empty, it is heavier. But before you think that’s an argument against this stroller? Let me tell you that weight is adding the stability and the security, making it significantly better ride for your babies.
Worried that the stroller won’t last you long enough? Do not worry. Each seat could hold 45 pounds or a combined weight of 90 pounds, definitely making this stroller the one that’s going to last you well through pre-school.
Alright, guys. That was a look at Bumbleride Indie Twin stroller. With a retail price of $739 it is a little bit on the pricey side but if you listen to all the features we talked about today it is well worth the price.
