I’m a big fan of the Joovy baby gear brand. In fact, I’ve reviewed a number of their products over the years, including the Joovy Room Playard, the Joovy TwinGroove Ultralight Double Stroller, the Joovy Caboose Ultralight Stroller and the Joovy Caboose Stroller.
When I got my first Joovy Caboose Ultralight Stroller, I discovered after a few weeks that sometimes Maggie (my 2 year old) wanted to be able to sit down AND face forward, and that just wasn’t possible when her brother was riding in his infant car seat at the front of the stroller. The back is made for a child to be able to stand or sit, but they need to face backward if they are sitting.
Well, Joovy just released a new accessory for this stroller to fix that problem! Let me introduce you to the Joovy Caboose Too Rear Seat! The Joovy Caboose Too Rear Seat changes your Joovy Caboose and Caboose Ultralight from this:
I was SO excited to get my hands one of these! My Joovy Caboose Too Rear Seat arrived just in time! Jacob is getting big enough to want out of his car seat when he’s in the stroller and Maggie LOVES to ride up front. Now, Maggie can ride in the front seat as she prefers and Jacob can relax in the back!
The Joovy Caboose Too Seat is really easy to install. All you really need to do is snap it into place. It took me maybe 2 minutes to have it ready to go and we were on our way for a nice walk! The pictures above show the back seat in the most reclined position with my baby sitting in it.
I already loved this stroller even before the introduction of the Joovy Caboose Too Seat, but now that I’ve got that, the only thing I wished this stroller offered was a matching Joovy infant car seat! It is a wonderful stroller and I know we’ll be using it for years to come!
You can purchase your own Joovy Caboose Too Rear Seat at Amazon.com. It’s available in a number of different colors.
I had a number of requests to show you how the stroller looks/feels with the infant car seat attached. I’ve taken some pictures for you! I asked my daughter to stand next to the stroller so you can see her size.
She sat in it with the seat upright and also reclined.When she sits in the back seat, her feet hang into the basket (which can be removed if you want) but they did not touch the bottom of the basket. She appeared to have plenty of foot and leg room. Obviously, she can’t see anything in front of her without looking to the sides, which I would say is one drawback if you wanted to take this stroller with you to someplace like the zoo, for instance. She did not complain about it being cramped and overall seemed to have plenty of room.
Choosing a stroller for your family is definitely a difficult decision! I hope you enjoy the pictures (and that it helps answer any questions you might have about using this stroller with an infant car seat), but please feel free to ask more questions if you have them!
