Mixx it up!

If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram,  you’ve probably seen a million and one pictures of this beautiful stroller I’m reviewing today.  We are in LOVE with our Nuna Mixx. This stroller offers so many great features, and is definitely worth taking for a test drive.

I searched high and low for the Nuna Mixx in the Mykonos color.  It’s beyond gorgeous and was the perfect stroller to take on our trip down to the Florida Keys.  I definitely put the Mixx through some rigorous testing, and it passed with flying colors.  Let’s get started!

The Mixx features a cozy reversible seat, with a full FLAT recline that was perfect during our trip.  We were out exploring from morning to night,  so no less than two naps were taken in Mixx each day!  When your child falls asleep in the stroller,  you know you’ve hit the jackpot.

The fabric remained cool in the Florida heat, and the large canopy offered plenty of coverage for my little cuties.  The Canopy has a zipper, which opens up and extends for optimal coverage with two mesh inserts on either side to allow for extra ventilation.  The handle bar is easy to adjust and the storage basket is HUGE.  The basket was able to hold a Ju-Ju-Be Super Be or Be Prepared (I tried out both), beach toys, drinks, and extra towels.  There’s even a divider to keep things organized.  My OCD self did a little happy dance when I saw that feature!

Nuna really had a child’s comfort in mind when creating this beauty.  The seat is plush and roomy, and offers a three or five point harness that really comes in handy when you have riders of different ages. The Mixx comes with a removable arm bar that’s perfect for attaching stroller toys.  A snack tray is not available yet, but, it’s in the works and will be available soon.  This will be a great addition to an already fab stroller!

The push on the Mixx is awesome!  It has front and rear wheel progressive suspension technology.  I pushed this stroller through every terrain possible in Florida… Sand, gravel, grass, bumpy sidewalks… You name it, we tried it!  It handled like a dream, just like I knew it would.

The rear tires are large, which allowed me to pull it through soft sand on the beach easily.  The foot brake is one touch and definitely flip-flop friendly, which I love!

One of my favorite features on the Nuna Mixx has to be the fold.  It’s so simple, that on day 2 of our vacation, everyone in the Family knew how to fold the stroller!

The Mixx can be collapsed with the seat facing in either direction, it’s fairly compact, and can be opened with one hand.  Whichever direction you fold the stroller, the seat fabric is protected, and I love that.

I gate checked (GASP!!) our Mixx on both flights, and I have to say that due to the awesome fold (and Frontier Airlines for being awesome!), this stroller was in immaculate condition when we received it.

My only complaint would have to be the design of the handlebar.  It’s comfortable, but the shape is different from most strollers.  I think it just takes some getting used to… My Husband didn’t even notice the difference, so, take it as me just being picky…that’s kind of my job though! 🙂

Here are the Specs on the Nuna Mixx:

  • Price: $499.95
  • recommended use: birth to 50 lbs

Overall, the Nuna Mixx is a fabulous everyday stroller.  Coming in at under $500.00, it’s a lot of bang for your buck. The design and quality are outstanding, and it’s totally gorgeous to look at.  The comfort of the seat, amazing push, easy fold, and large storage basket, make this a great option for daily use or city living!

Happy Strolling

The Indie.

This review is of the Bumbleride Indie Twin. This stroller is amazing. It’s beautiful, yet rugged and has a storage basket that could hold my extra-large mommy purse! #winning

I wanted to try the Bumbleride Indie Twin because I kept hearing how absolutely amazing it is. Bumbleride has the most vibrant color options for their strollers…they are truly stunning (green papyrus!!). With that said, I ordered it in black. I pretty much order everything in black. I’ll try to work on that…

Anyways, back to the Indie Twin. What I love about this stroller goes beyond aesthetics. It it so incredibly functional and really has everything you need in a side by side double. Bumbleride was more than generous with the canopy design for the Indie Twin. When it’s completely extended, it was nearly touching the footrest! That is AMAZING for cold windy days here in Chicago. Another great aspect of this stroller is that it actually comes with accessories. Straight out of the box you receive 2 bumper bars, a universal car seat adapter (see compatibility chart here), a parent cup holder as well as a safety strap that attached to the handlebar. I mean really, how awesome it that!? It’s not very often you receive so many extras with the purchase of a stroller.

 For anyone who is vertically challenge like myself (and I am sure all of you over 5’2” appreciate this as well), The Indie has an adjustable handle bar. The handle bar actually goes so low, my almost 2 year old was able to push the stroller!

Now with all of this good, there are a few minor issues I had with this stroller. The first being the seat angle. The seats sit at a slight recline which made my toddler a little frustrate. Minor, but still something to consider. Along with the slight angle it sits as, the recline strap is kind of pain. Definitely had to use what little muscle I have to get it back to the upright position after reclining. Maybe this was just my stroller though. Lastly, it’s a little awkward to get into the car once it’s folded. But really, what double stroller isn’t?

All in all – if you are looking for an all terrain stroller that doesn’t feel like your pushing a mac truck, this is your side by side double! Bumbleride is a fabulous company with quality products. You can’t really go wrong 😉
