Don’t tell my husband but I think he was right! You see, back when I was pregnant with Baby D we had some pretty lively discussions about whether or not we needed a double stroller, and if we did what kind would we get. He kept coming back to the Joovy Caboose, but I was sure we really needed a convertible stroller where I could have two comfortable seats for both boys. While I do love my convertible, as part of the Joovy Mom team I had the opportunity recently to review the Joovy Caboose Ultralight Stand-on Tandem stroller and after 1 day of using it I knew I was in love. (If you are more of a video review type of person – check the bottom of this post!)
We took our Joovy Caboose Ultralight stroller to San Diego with us recently for a family vacation and let me tell you – that stroller was worth it’s weight in GOLD! Weighing in at a mere 21 lbs the Joovy Caboose is not only ultralight – this thing is a beast! (I mean that in a good way!) It carried both my boys (together weighing 65 lbs), a diaper bag, our drinks, our cooler of snacks, changes of cloths, and tons of souvenirs like it was nothing! We navigated the hills of the San Diego Zoo, and the beaches of Coronado without batting an eye!
One of my main concerns when I initially looked at this stroller per my husband’s request (he’s a smart man really), was that the baby wouldn’t be able to nap in it, and my older son wouldn’t be comfortable without a seat. Turns out my concerns were VERY unfounded.
K loved the ability to chose to sit or stand, and was able to walk with us like a big boy, but still have a place to rest when he needed it. Plus at 43lbs and 43.5 inches tall he has out grown many traditional stroller seats if not in weight then for sure in height. (The front seat of the caboose holds up to 45 lbs). As far as Baby D taking naps in the stroller? He did just fine!
Even with the seat reclined all the way to the third position, my older son could still get in and out with ease. He did say it was more comfortable for him to stand when the baby was sleeping.
Another thing I really loved about the stroller was how easy it was to wipe clean. We spilled nearly everything on it while traveling and it even got pooped on while in stroller parking. It all came off with a baby wipe!
I think it is more than safe to say that I love this stroller as much as my boys did. It’s narrow enough to fit through any area, steers very well, handles a lot of weight, and has a ton of storage!
