In life, there are many important relationships, including girlfriend and boyfriend… husband and wife… and mother and stroller. When picking a life partner, er, um, stroller, one should always make sure they are compatible before committing.

Will it hold up through the hard times and can it cruise when life is smooth sailing? Does it match your core values? Weighing in at a reasonable 20 pounds, the Bumbleride Indie Natural Edition ($500) had us at ergo.

Things We Like:

Where do we begin! Gliding with ease when pushed, the fully adjustable seat allows an even cozier ride when baby falls asleep. And while it maneuvers like a dream, it offers a smooth break with a simple push of the foot locking both wheels at the same time.

There’s also enough storage room for all your baggage. And to make our hearts race even more, it folds easily, complete with a strap to carry it. With an ample canopy that keeps the sun out, there’s also a pocket for storage and a peek-a-boo window so you can see your child.

But most of all, it’s made with a super soft blend of recycled and bamboo fabrics which has the natural ability to absorb moisture, regulate temperature and inhibit bacterial growth. So if you’re an eco-minded parent, this sleek ride was made for you.

Things We Didn’t Like:

It can’t wash the dishes? Seriously, for once we’re speechless.

Moms & Babies Rating:

Eco-friendly, easy to store, padded for extra baby comfort and roomy enough for your child to enjoy through the preschool years, hands down the Bumbleride Indie Natural Edition is one of the best strollers on the market. In other words, like Brad Pitt, it proves some crushes are universal.

We’ve had this stroller for a few months now and love it! It’s easy to fold up, steers easily, and my son likes riding in it. I like that you can zip off the back part of the canopy to increase airflow when it’s warm out. I was hesitant to spend so much on a stroller, but we got a great deal and think it was worth it.

Don’t buy, will rust and horrible customer service!
It is recommended that you wipe it down if it touches water. Had mine for a short time and it rusted from snaps on material to piece used to recline to wheels that will no longer spin. Bike shop said to just toss it. Save yourself the headaches and dont get..
