Bumbleride Indie Review

Bumbleride Bunny
  The Bumbleride Indie in Spice, with it's gorgeous color combo of orange and blue, just screams Easter! My only trepidation about taking it out of town was the fact that it is a 3-wheeler. Could it fit it in the car with all of our luggage and Easter baskets?
Oh yeah, no problem! This is the most compact folding true A/T stroller I have seen! 
(Check out all of my measurements below. If you need it to be even smaller, just pop off the rear wheels.) Which is a good thing to know, since summer vacation is right around the corner. And not all of our adventures take place on paved roads. When I am traveling, these are some features in a stroller that I wish for.
 Another very good thing to have when traveling is a big basket and carry handle--check.
And a huge canopy, to protect against sun rays, and summer showers. Could it get any bigger than this?
 A napper bar is great to hang toys on, or snack trays. Check. An adjustable leg rest? Check. SP 2.0  is much more comfy when he has his feet up. And when baby is rested and happy, we are all rested and happy. 
 A mesh vent in the hood would be nice...check...
And perhaps a zipper in the back of the canopy for more ventilation, and a zippered pocket...
 And of course, for great maneuverability over those cobblestones, rutted roads, and trails, air tires with suspension and a front swivel wheel are a must-have:   
An extra bonus would be a recline and harness that are easy to use, check:
 And a height adjustable handle, if one pusher is tall, and the other is short:
 Stylish fabrics that are easy to clean would be lovely.
Finally, it would be nice if it came with a rain cover. Check. And if you could get a matching foot muff, diaper bag, snack tray, bassinet, and travel  bag. Double check. I would like it to have a flat recline for napping or a newborn, a large seat for bigger children, and the choice of a single or double, in lots of bright colors. Triple check.
 This is the stuff stroller dreams are made of. And our dreams have come true, in the Indie. Thank you, Bumbleride, for being the "Stroller Genie" and granting our wishes.
