I tested the very lovely Spice Indie with 3 of my children, my 20 plus pound 9 month old, my 25 pound 23 month old and my 40 pound 3 year old. All three loved the stroller and the Indie was easy to push no matter who was on board or where we went. We rolled over bumpy terrain, broken sidewalks, popped curbs, took very long walks and a few quick runs, darted through crowded streets and visited the Farmer’s market. The canopy is so amazing that we had no need for the rain cover when it started to pour and my 3 year old loved the privacy it gave him when he pulled it all the way down. Pushing one handed was not a problem, I could have pushed with one finger even with my huge 3 year old on board. He’s very tall and built like a tank. He started filling stroller seats before he hit 2, but he had ample room in the Indie. Despite the generous space for my 3 year old, everything adjusted right down for my 9 mo old as well and she loved the adjustable footrest. All three riders were easily accommodated and loved the ride. I love everything about it.
An all-terrain stroller with city sensibilities, you will look at home in the country or city and you will love the features. Rear suspension, 12” air filled tires, lockable swiveling front wheel, adjustable handlebar that allows for a very long stride, included cup holder and rain cover are just some of what the Indie offers. The canopy is incredible and pulls all the way down to the bumper bar, has a zip off back for extra ventilation and a peekaboo window plus a handy zippered pocket that will hold your wallet, keys or cell phone. A slight 20 pounds, it folds compactly and has a very handy carry handle as well. Suitable from newborn to 45 pounds, this stroller will take you wherever you need to go. It is also car seat compatible with a wide range of car seats and includes the necessary straps. Optional accessories include the a Carrycot, Footmuff, Travel Bag, and the very handy Jam Pack and Snack Pack. Available in Lava (black), Ruby (red), Seagrass (green), Spice (orange) and Vita (pink), the Indie retails for $469.00.
