Joovy: Caboose Ultralight Stroller

Disclosure: The Stroller in the feature below was sent compliments of Joovy.

In my opinion, having two young children makes a stroller a necessity. If your older child is four or older, buying a true double stroller may not be the best idea for you because they will be grown out of it before you really get your moneys worth out of it- but there are times and places that an older child still  needs a place to sit! So I set out to find a stroller that would work for this type of situation- and I found an excellent one- The Joovy Caboose Ultralight Stand-On Tandem Stroller

The Joovy Caboose Ultralight is the lightest, most maneuverable tandem stroller I have ever used. It weighs only 21 pounds, which is 20% lighter than the original Caboose and way lighter than other double strollers on the market. You have so many options with the Caboose Ultralight. Your older child can sit down-

or stand!

It is always a fight to get Carlee, who wants to walk by herself, but does not quite get the concept of staying close to mom and dad to ride in the stroller. But it always seems like when I bring a single stroller with us, she gets tired and wants to ride and I end up carrying someone! With the Caboose, she is able to feel so much more independent. She has the freedom to choose between walking, standing and sitting. And when she can no longer make a good decision on her own, the rear three point buckle allows me to keep her sitting down.

The Caboose is very easy to push around. It glides through narrow mall spaces with ease thanks to the large, sealed ball bearing wheels. And because it is so light- it can be pushed with only one hand.

Features Include:

  • 3-Position Front Seat Recline.
  • Large storage basket with side pockets.
  • Padded rear seat .
  • Car Seat Adapter.
  • Removable Tray.
  • Oversized Canopy.
  • Super compact fold.
  • Parent Organizer.

The large, comfortable front seat, reclines to three different levels, depending on if your child is awake or asleep! The removable, washable child tray easily snaps into place and provides a great place for snacks, toys and beverages. The 5 point harness is super easy to adjust and change to fit each child.

With the infant car seat attachment, the front seat can be used from birth. But the seat alone is best for babies 3 months or older, with a bit of head control. Your child can seat in the front seat till they weigh 45 lbs or they reach 40″ tall! The rear seat can be used till 45 lbs and 44″ tall.

You can also purchase the Caboose Too Seat attachment- to make the Joovy ultralight a true double stroller- with two full size seats! This affordable accessory converts your tandem Caboose to a full double stroller in minutes. The Caboose Too seat installs easily onto the existing rear platform and stroller frame.  It reclines and includes a 5-point harness, just like the front seat.  The Caboose Too is a perfect solution for families looking for a compact double stroller and for those with children close in age- but not quite ready to stand or use the bench seat!

Buy It: You can purchase the Joovy Caboose Ultralight Stroller for 249.99!

  2. kelly willis says

    wow this look easier then the double stroller i have

  3. Wow! This is the cadillac of strollers I’d have to say. That’s so cool!

  4. Jenny Sims says

    This looks like a really versatile option for a double stroller! Does the car seat attachment work with most car seats?

  5. Carolyn Ann Colley (Griffith, Smith) says

    How neat, where was all the good baby items when my kids were little.

  6. Michelle Feliciano says

    Really cool. My sister could really use one with her 2yr old and 8 month old

  7. Patricia Williams says

    I love this strolled. My 4year old will not fit in a strolled but he gets tired if its a walk all day activity. He would be willing to sit or stand on this stroller.

  8. Wow now this is slick! I wanna have another kid just so I could use this. I’m sure I’d find it useful even w/ just 1 child. lol. very cool!

  9. Terri Betz says

    It’s cute and I like the colors! Probably only important to me, but still! I like that it’s lightweight so I can take it on the bus! It’s a hassle, but it’s real life! Good, honest review, thanks.

  10. i love the versatility for this stroller! i have twins niece/nephew and one is very mobile, the other does not yet approve of walking. This would be perfect for them to stretch as they like!

  11. Vanessa Coker says

    I’ve been “flirting” with this stroller for a while now 🙂 I think we need to take the plunge!!!

  12. Bekah Kuczenski says

    What a fun stroller, my daughter would love the caboose! But, I also love that it can be a double stroller too!

  13. I have a four year old and a baby. I NEED this. Thanks for sharing. I have seen a lot of great products from Joovy lately on the blogosphere. I will look at Amazon for this one.

  14. Love this stroller. So versatile and it looks so light ans easy to use. I need me one of these.

  15. Diane Sallans says

    What great features this has & so flexible!

  16. Carol ONeil says

    Wow this is an Awesome Stroller !

  17. Charlene s says

    That is such a creative stroller. It can be used different ways.

  18. This is one great features I am looking on before, a lightweight double stroller. Looks so comfortable for the kids to sit on.

  19. Jodie moeller says

    This looks like an amazing stroller…for just ONE child even! It has so many options. Any baby would go places comfortably! Mom too.

  20. kerri waltz says

    This looks perfect for me! I have always disliked the strollers with the standing only place for the older children, I love that this has a seat as well! Would be perfect for a trip to the zoo or amusment park!

  21. Kathy Damron says

    This stroller has so many great options! Nice!

  22. Great idea

  23. I really like strollers with the 5-point harness. Looks like a great stroller for 2 kids.

  24. Not too bad for a double!

  25. The Joovy Caboose Ultralight Stroller looks very nice. Thanks for the interesting and informative review!

  26. Tiffany Christie says

    Love this stroller. Most strollers designed like that are so bulky. This one is still compact but functional.

  27. bekah anderson says

    I love the two seat option and the fact it is so convertible!

  28. June Isbel says

    The only thing this would need is a motor! WOW wish they made these when I had my kids! Great for my grandchildren!

  29. Wish I had one of these about 4 years ago…when mine were really little. I always had one trying to stand on the bottom basket.

  30. This looks like a great stroller! I had the kind that made you feel like you were trying to push a bus. I need to tell my sister-in-law about this one since she is going to have her 3rd soon.

  31. Britni Bradford says

    I love all the options on this stroller. It seems like a great deal. I actually saw a family using one at the zoo last week. It looked great in action.

  32. This is a great stroller! It is a must for families with more than one child.

  33. Love the versatility of this stroller and it doesn’t look too big and bulky

  34. Michelle Spayde says

    I’ve never seen anything like this! What a great idea for families with two young children!

  35. Our family owns three Joovy strollers as well as numerous other Joovy products. I can’t think of a single bad thing to say about any of them. I adore this brand! Not only are all of their items high quality and attractive, but the customer service is superb!

  36. This stroller is great and Joovy is another brand that I trust completely! My sister has 2 girls, one is five years old and a three year old and she just recently purchased a new, very expensive double stroller only for it not to be used at all! my 5 yr old niece refuses to seat in a stroller “like a baby” and i truly don’t blame her, this stroller would have been great and she wouldn’t have wasted so much money, I”ll be sure to let all mama’s with more than one kid about your review! thanks!

  37. Angelah nardella says

    I wish they had these products when had my son. It looks so neat and light weight..things sure change alot driver I had a baby:/

  38. I had this stroller and LOVED it then I got rid of it because I never used it. Now im kicking myself! I wish I still had it! My daughters were 2 and 3 months when I had it, I didn’t have the carseat attachment but should of gotten it! It was so nice and easy to use. Fold up, and light weight! I am now in search of another, used though.

  39. Honeylore M. says

    I really enjoyed reading this review, I’ve had my eye in Joovy products for a couple years now. I’m expecting my 3rd child Spring 2015, which means I’ll have 2 kids under 3 which makes a tandem stroller a necessity! I love how it only weighs 21 lbs. I need a lightweight stroller since I will be recovering from my 3rd C-section.

    • Oh Vix your packing is making me sad – you'll be off soon! I love your organisation and your packing skills and the outfits are a wow as ever.Just read your previous post too and the cape is AMAZING! Misery child tray is a winner too.
