This is a stroller I have always wanted. Something for the baby, toddler, even smaller kid for those long days. We also need a stroller that is small so it can fit in the car without taking up the entire 3rd row and storage area. And finally a stroller for the baby and for the others that is easy to get in and out while taking giving seating for 2.
I have been working with Joovy on checking out their products and have always been happy with their quality. This very lighweight yet very sturdy stroller, thanks to the actual frame structure, is exactly what I expected from their products. For us, it is very important that a stroller be sturdy since we live in Portland with many hills and slopes. Having a quality stroller is important so that it will last a long time, plus the function of he Caboose is awesome!
We were given a Joovy Caboose Ultralight Stand-On Tandem Stroller to check out and review. We chose the black color, but they come in a wide range which is great for all those different styles. They have some beautiful colors like blueberry, brownie, charcoal grey, and of course black. No matter what they all look great!
Whats great about the size of this stroller is not only that it is easy to maneuver, since it is tandem stroller it has a narrower width profile than a double wide. But what really sets this 2-seater stroller is that it is not just narrow, but very short in length and when folded up weighs about 21 lbs.
This stroller is not much bigger than a normal stroller, but it uses its frame well to manage the little people space. And what is nice is that it can be used as a stand-on stroller for the older kids, but also a 2 forward facing seated stroller for 2 small babies. The front seat accommodates children from 3 months to 45 lbs and the rear suggests a min age of 2.5 years and up to 45 lbs. And the front seat can be used with the Universal Car Seat Adapter to properly and safely support a carseat for an infant.
The nice thing about a stroller like this other than its small profile and space use is how it can be used with kids of different ages. It is great for babies because it can be used as a 2 seater, or in our case a baby and older sibling. But it can be used in some many combo’s such as for 2 toddlers and even great for us since we have a 7 year old and when we are out on those long trips family like see a big city or to visit amusement parks it is nice to have an area to let the kids catch up on some rest and not stop moving.
The cup holders have a large pocket for storage and will hold any cup or bottle without it falling over which is nice.
For both front and back seats (when using the upper seatback) there is a safe 5-point harness Even when only using the sit-on rear seat and stand on area there is a lap belt for safety. And of course like any good stroller there is plenty of space below for storage. It can hold more than 10 lbs which is great for things and trips to the store and for whatever.
This is one of our favorite strollers because of the stand on and sit-on design, small compact size for transportation, super strong sturdy frame, and for so many reasons. Its nice to use as a tandem 2 forward facing seat stroller, but also have the option to use as a stand-on.
