Bumbleride Indie all-terrain stroller review

Tried it, Loved it: the MGVfam review the Bumbleride Indie stroller

The Bumbleride Indie stroller is an all-round adventurer that adapts perfectly to an active lifestyle. From slick city footpaths to off-road bumps, it takes on everything life throws at it and keeps little passengers comfy no matter the terrain.

Ready to roll from day one, the Indie converts to a reclined infant mode without adapters. Its lightweight frame, all-wheel suspension and air-filled tyres make manoeuvrability a breeze, and an ergonomic trigger release makes folding quick and fuss-free.

Created with OEKO-TEX-certified fabrics made from 100% recycled PET bottles and ocean waste, it’s a win for the planet too.

Available online at Bumbleride (from $1,099.95) and selected retailers.

But don’t just take our word for it – we asked mums from the Mum’s Grapevine Facebook Groups to review the Bumbleride Indie for several weeks. They went off-road, out for coffee, did the shopping, and even took on the third trimester while putting this pram through its paces.

Here’s what the Mum’s Grapevine reviewers had to say:

‘I would most definitely recommend the Bumbleride Indie if you are looking for a better pram, I wish I had it sooner!’

I was lucky enough to be selected by Mum’s Grapevine to review and demonstrate the Bumbleride Indie. This pram has 3-wheels which are all-terrain and air-filled so it’s super easy to push (I can easily do it one-handed!).

The pram was super easy to set up as well as put up and down. The pram design was super sleek and very aesthetically pleasing. The quality of the pram was very durable and this was tested in strong winds, rain and sunshine while on walks around the south coast.

I took it on a real test while on a walk and pushed it on gravel, grass and sand! Amazingly the pram was still super easy to maneuver even on the sand – perfect for our beach walks!

Our previous pram couldn’t go on sand so this was fantastic given we live near the beach. I loved how easy the prams seat was to manipulate and that it could also be easily turned into a bassinet style for when my son fell asleep to make him more comfortable.

My favourite detail is the handle once the pram was folded. This made it so easy to get in and out of the car one-handed. I also loved how there were multiple pockets in and around the pram for added storage.

The pocket inside the pram was perfect for putting a white nose machine for naps on the go!

The pram itself came in all sustainable eco-friendly packaging, all plastic components are made from recycled fishing nets and the fabric for the pram is made from OEKO-TEX standard 100 certified 100% recycled PET (65 water bottles per pram!). I definitely couldn’t tell the difference between this pram and our old less sustainable pram. The quality was perfect and knowing it was made in such a sustainable way and helping our environment was great.

I would most definitely recommend the Bumbleride Indie if you are looking for a better pram, I wish I had it sooner!

‘I wish I had gotten the Indie from the get-go!’

The Indie well and truly exceeded both my and my partner’s expectations. The quality is sensational and the design not only looks good but is so functional as well.

After having another brand pram that felt like a puzzle each time we had to get it out of the car, it is amazing to be able to close it one-handed whilst holding a clingy toddler.

It’s a breeze to pop in the car and take on family outings. My partner has a small Mazda CX3 and was not able to fit our other pram in his car. The Indie fits in beautifully and I love that now we can take either car on our family outings!

My parents love how easy it is for them now to take Laurie out on a walk after avoiding it for so long with our other pram as it was too complex for them to put together.

Since we have had the Indie, it also has meant we have been able to sell our running pram (thank goodness as it took up so much room) as the front wheel can be set as fixed or free moving.

My most loved feature is how easy it is to pack up/unfold.

This pram is better than I could have ever imagined, my partner and I have both fallen in love with it.

‘This is an amazing pram that will go anywhere and won’t disappoint.”

I was able to put it together all on my own at 28 weeks pregnant and I didn’t struggle at all.

I love that it can be folded down without removing a seat and it fits nicely into the car – it also has a handle on the underside for ease of lifting.  It only weighs 11kgs so easy for me to lift. I can still do it at almost 30 weeks pregnant and will prob be able to continue to do it at full term.

The all-terrain wheels are great for being on a farm and also visiting the beach that isn’t far from our home.

I love that it can have a bassinet and a capsule attached to it, but it doesn’t need them as it lays flat and is suitable for a newborn as it is.

This is an amazing pram that will go anywhere and won’t disappoint, it’s very lightweight and so easy to move. I can’t wait to get my newborn into it.
