Most parents today lead active lifestyles, exercising and running with their babies and children. Strollers need to keep up with the families that use them, and Bumbleride offers high-tech strollers that move on any terrain.

For someone unfamiliar with Bumbleride, how would you describe the company’s mission and core offerings?
Bumbleride makes eco-friendly strollers for families to get out and do what they love, while doing our best to preserve the planet. We offer an all-terrain, everyday stroller called Indie, a running stroller called Speed, and an all-terrain/jogging double stroller known as Indie Twin, along with accessories for each model.
What is the background of Bumbleride? When was it started and how has it evolved since then?
Bumbleride was founded in 2004 when co-founders Matt and Emily Reichardt were expecting their first child and were frustrated with the lack of stroller options at the time. They set out to create their own stroller that embraced their active lifestyle and was thoughtfully designed to ensure durability, safety and function. Thanks to a small loan from Matt’s grandparents, they ordered their first shipment from Taiwan. Today the strollers are still manufactured at the same family-run Taiwanese factory and sold in more than 250 stores in the US, and 18 countries including the United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia.
What are the most popular and/or newest services and products from Bumbleride?
This April we are releasing a new, dedicated running stroller named Speed which features Speed3 steering and offers run, jog, and walk options, as well as refined versions of our Indie and Indie Twin all terrain-strollers. Our Indie line has been around since 2007 and updated many times based on parent feedback.
What sets Bumbleride apart from other stroller and baby product companies on the market?
At Bumbleride, our aim is to get a little greener with everything we do. The textiles, aluminum and plastics that make up Bumbleride products are carefully chosen for durability, safety and function, but also their environmental impact. We believe a purpose-built product should be functional and intuitive but also make a positive impact on a family’s life and the planet we all share. Manufacturing can be a dirty business so we seek out suppliers that are innovating to save energy, conserve water and reduce pollution in landfills. Materials matter.
What can parents expect to see from Bumbleride at the New York Baby Show?
Parents can expect a friendly Bumbleride staffer to offer test drives and demos of our new Speed running stroller ($549), Indie all terrain stroller ($529) and Indie Twin double stroller ($749), all made with eco fabrics featuring recycled plastic bottles, and featuring Oeko-Tex & bluesign fabric certifications. All Bumbleride strollers offer a 3 year warranty, eco fabrics and a one-step, compact fold.
