About the Bumbleride Flyer
As a new parent, you may find yourself spending a whole lot of time looking at your baby. Blogger Tia of “Clever Girl Goes Blog” writes:
“When I say I spend time staring at her, I mean I spend time STARING at her … I’m pretty much an expert on this child. I know where her birthmarks are, I can use 10 adjectives for the color of her eyes, and I could probably sketch an exact replica of her hands and fingernails.”
You and Tia are far from alone in this staring habit – and your baby loves gazing back up at you, too. With the Bumbleride Flyer Stroller, there’s no need to break that mutual gaze. Unlike other reversible strollers, you don’t reverse the Flyer’s seat: you just reverse the handle!
The 2012 Bumbleride Flyer stroller sticks closely to formula – the only change for this year is a new color, Aqua, which is a gorgeous swimming-pool blue. The 2012 Flyer crams all the same functions into a small, light package, weighing only 19 pounds, with a nice compact fold. Here’s a quick rundown on the Flyer:
- Easy rolling: Because the Bumbleride Flyer stroller’s wheels roll in both directions, all four wheels can lock. So for super-easy maneuvering, just lock the set of wheels that are closest to you, and unlock the ones facing away from you to swivel. The result is a stroller that you can push and turn easily with one hand, and you’ll only need a little extra oomph if your child is up at the top of the weight limit. While the 6” rubber-like stroller wheels are not all-terrain, they’re fine for sidewalks, pavement, and grass. The stroller handlebar is also height adjustable, so if Dad is tall and Mom is short (or vice-versa), you can tilt it up or down for a perfect fit that keeps you from kicking the back of the stroller. And a spacious stroller basket is large enough for your enormous diaper bag.
- Extended use: The 2012 Bumbleride Flyer stroller can accommodate babies from infancy up through about age 5 (45 pounds): it reclines nearly flat, and includes an infant headrest and shoulder pads, so small babies can ride comfortably, or you can attach an infant car seat with the included universal adapter. The wide stroller seat and tall backrest leave plenty of room for big kids, too. So if you’re doing most of your strolling on sidewalks or in the mall, this may be the only stroller you need for the entirety of your child’s early years!
- Comfort: The Bumbleride Flyer Stroller has four-wheel suspension and sturdy rubber-like wheels that insulate your little passenger from bumps in the road, and the immense, easy-to-adjust canopy shelter your child from the sun. The stroller canopy can tilt all the way forward to follow the angle of the sun, and you can unfasten the mesh peek-a-boo window or unzip the entire rear of the canopy to let summer breezes cool off hot kids.
- Easy adaptability: The included infant car seat adapter pops into the same slot as the included bumper bar, and accommodates infant car seats from Graco, Peg Perego, Chicco, Britax, and more. You can also substitute a Bumbleride carrycot (sold separately), or add a Bumbleride Snack Pack (sold separately) so your child can nosh on the go. A cupholder is included for you, and a rain shield for yucky days.
In the final analysis, though, it all comes back to that awesome reversing handlebar. The 2012 Bumbleride Flyer stroller lets you and the baby explore the wider world together without taking your eyes off of each other. Just don’t forget to look both ways before you cross the street, ok?
