Earlier this week I gave you my review of the Joovy Caboose Stroller. Today I’m ready to share my review of the Joovy Caboose Ultralight Stroller. Like the Joovy Caboose Stroller, the Joovy Caboose Ultralight Stroller is a tandem stroller. There are quite a few similarities between the two strollers but also a few differences. Here are all the things you need to know about the 2017 Joovy Caboose Ultralight Stroller.
Functionality For Two
One of my favorite things about the Joovy Caboose Ultralight stroller is just how functional it is for two. There are actually 2 versions of this stroller available. The Joovy Caboose Ultralight stroller or the Joovy Too Caboose Ultralight, for about $30 more. The Joovy Caboose Ultralight stroller is a sit-and-stand tandem stroller, giving your older toddler the ability to ride while standing or sitting on a small platform seat. If you opt for the Joovy Too Caboose Ultralight, you’ll have the sit-and-stand functionality of the original Joovy Caboose, but with the added bonus of a (removable) full second seat.
Let me show you what I mean. Take a look at the following photos. From top to bottom you’ll see the stroller used with the back child sitting on the platform seat, standing, then finally sitting in the “Too” seat.
Do you have a baby and want to use this stroller as a travel system? Well you’re in luck, because it does that too! With a universal car seat adapter, this stroller should work with just about any infant car seat on the market. Here’s how it looks when using the infant car seat with the Too seat in place. I also had my 3 year old sit in the Too seat so you can see how much room she has.
As you can see, the Joovy Caboose stroller gives you many ways to ride!
I’ve had the chance to review a number of Joovy baby gear products over the year and I love that they are all built to last. The 2 year warranty is 4 times longer than the Baby Trend Sit and Stand warranty and 2 times longer than the Graco Ready2Grow warranty! I love it when a company really stands behind their products!
The fabric used for the stroller is durable and the plastic feels tough as well, not cheap and flimsy. The standing board is high quality and made to last.
One of the big selling points of this stroller is just how light it is. Weighing in at just 22 pounds, it’s so easy to push, pull, and load into a trunk, especially for a double stroller. It’s so easy to weave in and out of crowds and the bright color makes it easy to spot if you need to park it somewhere for a bit. Should you desire for any reason, the front wheels can be locked. I prefer to let mine swivel for maximum maneuverability. The parking brake is connected, so you’ll only have to engage/disengage it on one side.
Other Features To Note
I think every stroller needs a basket, and this one has a basket that is reasonably sized. The one drawback is, should you use the Joovy Caboose Ultralight with the Too seat, if your older child sits in the back their feet will dangle into the basket.
The canopy on the Joovy Caboose Ultralight is huge. Even better, this stroller comes with an additional canopy extension which is stored in the parent organizer. Yep, the parent organizer comes standard with the stroller too. It gives you 2 cup holders and a zippered pocket, perfect for storing your keys, wallet, cell phone, etc..
The stroller is approved to use with up to 90 pounds (45 pounds per seat), so it will definitely last quite a while!
The seats (front and Too seat) on the Joovy Caboose Ultralight are adjustable to give your child a good bit of recline, if they need a nap while you are out. The front seat also features an adjustable foot rest, plus a tray for your child with built-in cup holders.
Check out my video review to see the stroller in action:
I’m in love with the Joovy Caboose Ultralight stroller, especially with the Too seat. It’s so easy to steer because it’s so lightweight. I really love the large size of the canopy on this stroller and the ability to extend it quickly and easily. The parent organizer is a great feature as well that really gives you everything you could need in a stroller. Joovy hit it out of the park with this stroller; I think you’re going to love it too!
The Joovy Caboose Ultralight Stroller has a suggested retail price of $249.99 or $279.99 if you purchase it with the Too seat. Keep your eye out for deals though, because I’ve seen it as low as $169.00 on Amazon (as of this writing).
