Adding a third child to our family definitely changes things in the stroller department. That’s why I’m so glad that Joovy generously sent me a Ultralight Caboose Too for review. This double stroller is great solution for us with a lot of flexibility.
The Joovy Ultralight Caboose Too can accomodate two of my children in a number of ways:
Using the infant car seat adaptor, I can place Edison’s Britax Chaperone securely in the front facing me. The Joovy Ultralight Caboose has built in straps (with their own little pockets for storage) to keep the seat secure.
Quincy or her big brother Sebby can ride one of four (!) ways! If I’m wearing Edison, one of them can ride up front. There’s even a snack tray that can be attached for things like sippy cups and gold fish. When the front seat is occupied, the traveler in the rear has few options. They can stand, holding onto the safety rails. This is a great option for Sebby who may want to jump on and off to check things out. Or, the option for the jump seat is there for a quick rear facing seat. The Joovy Ultralight Caboose Too aslo has the option of a forward facing seat adaptor that attaches in minutes to the jump seat. It easily reclines too, so it’s great for naps – which Quincy does still take!
This sit and stand style stroller doesn’t fold up as compactly as say, my Joovy Kooper (that they don’t make anymore), but it still is manageable and fits in the back of my station wagon with a ton of groceries and kid gear so I’m pretty happy. And the fold? It’s really simple. It does take two hands, but it was still really intuitive. That’s a plus in my book. You shouldn’t need a mechanical engineering degree to figure out how to fold a stroller.
Storage is another thing that’s important to me. There is a decent size storage basket underneath the seats, as well as smaller side pockets. Now, it is harder to access the larger basket when the extra seat is installed – especially if there is a kid in it, so I don’t recommend putting the favorite snacks in there or you might have a toddler meltdown. The Joovy Ultralight Caboose Too also comes with a organizer that easily attaches to the handlebars for things like bottles of water, keys, cellphones etc. I wouldn’t recommend placing hot beverages in there because there is a chance it could spill on the child below.
Now with a double stroller comes more weight. Not only is the stroller heavier, but there is more kid in there too, so sometimes they get a bit unwieldy. I’m happy to report that I was comfortable pushing around the Joovy Ultralight Caboose Too with Edison in his car seat, and Quincy in the 2nd seat. Keep in mind, that the car seat adds another 10 or so pounds of weight.
Despite the rumors, we do get sun here in Seattle, so I love love love the generous sunshade too. It’s one of my favorite things about Joovy strollers – they know how to keep out the sun!
To truly put our newest ride to the test we’re going to have to head out to the zoo or something, or maybe up to the grocery store (about a mile away) and see how it goes, but for now, I’m loving it for around the neighborhood!
