You ever hear about an event or a place you'd like to go, but then back out at the last minute because the logistics of getting there--bringing yourself, bringing everything you need, parking--are just too much to bear? Now imagine throwing kids in the mix, who while adorable, can make even a quick trip to the grocery store a transportation nightmare. That's why we were more than delighted to interview the makers of modern baby transportation units (you might know them as strollers) not because they look modern and cool, but because they are making parents' ability to move baby from point A to point B much, much easier.
Bumbleride is helmed by the attractive and well-spoken husband and wife team of Matthew and Emily Reichardt. Parents of young kids themselves, they knew firsthand how tough it could be to find strollers that fit only their modern aesthetic, were made well, did everything modern strollers needed to do and were safe and healthy for kids. Not happy with what was on the market when their kids were needing transportation, they combined their skills to start Bumbleride.
Even just glancing at Bumbleride strollers you can see that they're unlike a lot of what's available today. They have an elegant simplicity to them that makes them perfect for what many young modern couples are looking for. They really consider what today's parents need in terms of different lifestyles, especially in tight and complex urban environments. Their attention to detail is evident, and they have a huge variety of accessories that can be added on to their products for ultimate customization depending on each family's needs. I don't have kids myself, but I sort of wish it were socially acceptable for anyone to use a stroller--I could really use these for carrying my stuff around!
We sat down with both Matthew and Emily to learn about their backgrounds, what sets their products apart and more. Check it out:
