Stroller Scoop: RumbleSeat Rumblings

All right, everyone! I did a little digging and a little snooping and I've returned with lots of juicy information on UppaBaby's new RumbleSeat. This is 100% fresh and accurate--I squeezed it right from the source.

(...I might have taken that metaphor a little too far. On to the stroller info!)

The RumbleSeat will be availbale in May 2009, retailing for $129.00. It's a great buy for parents of two because it converts a single stroller to a double in-line stroller in seconds. With a quick slide and snap, the RumbleSeat is installed onto the Vista Stroller frame.
The seat is low enough for toddlers to climb in and out, but high enough to keep little hands safe and away from the ground and wheels. In addition, it has a five-point harness and a canopy with SPF 50+ sun protection.

The seats’ fabric matches the Vista Stroller seat and the frame is constructed of lightweight aluminum providing strength, durability and a sleek modern look. Kids can also rest their feet on the seat’s two-position footpad--without compromising basket storage. When you're not using the RumbleSeat it can be stored under the stroller.

There are 3 RumbleSeat Configurations:

1. With a car seat

2. With the VISTA seat facing front and fully reclined (ideal for newborns)

3. With the VISTA seat in a full upright, rear facing position

So that's the scoop! Special thanks to Molly for helping me out.

Check back here for when this exciting new UppaBaby accessory will be available on Strollers.com!

I’ve been eagerly waiting for UppaBaby's new Rumble Seat. Thank you for giving such useful information regarding Rumble Seat. Has I am expecting my second baby in 4 months so, this would be ideal choice as it is compatible with my Mickey Bungee Deluxe I am looking for the black and blue combination so that it matches my Bungee Deluxe.
