Kaelyn is at an age now where she does pretty well walking next to us if we’re out shopping or on a walk. At times a stroller for her is necessary, so we use our double stroller, but there are also times when a single one will due for Kaden while Kaelyn walks along side us, or for Kaelyn if Kaden is being held by someone.
That’s why I was thrilled to have the opportunity to review the Bumbleride Flyer in Lava. We were fortunate enough to receive it just before Kaden was born….so it’s been fun trying it out with both kids.

For those who are familiar with Bumbleride, you know that they are a company who has put a lot of thought into the design of their strollers. Their strollers are practical and accommodate families with small children in many ways, giving you and your little one a safe ride. I love how stylish they are too!
As we pulled the stroller out of the box, I knew right away that this would be a stroller we’d get a lot of use out of, primarily because it’s unique in the features it offers from other single strollers we’ve seen or owned. The first thing about it that I absolutely love is how light weight it is. Weighing just 19 lbs with an aluminum frame makes it ideal for hauling in the trunk and taking with you wherever you go! It’s also very compact and easy to fold.
The reversible handle is also a huge plus! This makes it possible to have your child facing forward, or have them facing you. Until Kaden is a bit older, I prefer that he face us…so this is a very nice option to have.
Along with the reversible handle…I also appreciate the fact that there is an infant seat adapter bar which allows you to use an infant carrier on the stroller. I haven’t come across many single strollers that allow you to do this, especially those which are such high quality! Even though you can use a car seat on this stroller, I also like the fact that the seats accommodate infants when laid flat.
Along with the stroller, we were sent the optional Bumbleride Footmuff and Liner…a great way to keep your child warm and comfortable. This is a must for those of us living in Minnesota this time of year, and having something like this makes it easier to use a stroller, even on the coldest of days.
Storage on a stroller is also key! The fact that this small stroller has such a great spacious cargo basket is wonderful! I know that even if we took this stroller on an all day trip to the zoo or shopping, it would be perfect for our storage needs.
I love the canopy too! It has a removable rear panel which allows for airflow on those hot summer days as well as for protection from the sun when needed. The viewing window is also great, as it makes it easy for me to be able to see the kids while strolling.
I could go on and on about how much we love the Bumbleride Flyer and all the features it offers. Overall I really feel like the Bumbleride Flyer is ready to grow with my family. It’s ideal for infants and toddlers and has so many great features to offer! I know we’ll get plenty of use out of it with both of our kids. I would definitely recommend this Bumbleride stroller to any parent. You can’t beat the variety of features and quality. You can learn more about this great stroller by visiting Bumbleride today!
