Joovy Caboose Stand On Stroller

Updated on January 4, 2015

Joovy Caboose Stand on Stroller

The Joovy Caboose is Joovy's version of the sit and stand stroller that is becoming very popular with parents. The stand on stroller is the entry level stroller for the sit and stand market in terms of price. However, as we are about to see, just because it's a budget model, it doesn't mean it isn't any good.

The Joovy Caboose comes in two models: The Joovy Caboose, and the Joovy Ultralite Caboose. The Joovy Ultralite also has the option of an additional functional back seat, making it a truly universal stroller.

How heavy is the stroller?

The stroller weighs approximately 26lbs, or 11kgs. Other models of the Joovy weigh in at 20lbs, or 9kgs for the Ultralight and the Joovy Caboose triple sit and stand stroller weighs in at 46lbs or 21kgs.

It's lightweight frame make manouverability a lot easier and with a tandem stroller it is one of the most important aspects. It is also much easier to carry than the other models.

The Jump Seat

One thing that is unique to the Joovy Caboose stand on stroller is the way the jump seat (or bench) works. Other sit and stand strollers do not allow you to adjust the bench at the back. This means that if you have an infant car seat in the front seat, the child sitting on the back bench will have to lean forward in order to sit down. As you can imagine, this is not the most comfortable position to be in.

The bench can be moved back and forth to better accommodate your child. When the front seat is reclined, moving the bench back will give the second child more room and a more comfortable ride. Once the perfect position has been found, you can easily lock the bench in place.

As mentioned previously, the Joovy Ultralite stroller has the option of purchasing an additional seat which functions like a tandem stroller. It is especially useful for younger children who will then grow into the stroller and the seat can be removed to expose the bench. Having this features means that the stroller will be used for a long time and it makes it better value for money.

Additional rear seat for the Ultralight model

If you are planning on buying the Ultralight model there is an additional option of a second, fully functioning toddler seat that attaches to the platform on the back of the stroller. The seat is designed for children over six months old, and has a multi recline function. What is great about this additional seat is that the stroller has added functionality. For long journeys, the seat can be attached to the stroller for added comfort.

With the Joovy Caboose Ultralite there is an additional back seat that you can put on the stroller to make a tandem stroller. This gives additional flexibility to the stroller and provides a more comfortable ride for longer journeys!

Would you buy a Joovy Caboose or regular tandem stroller?

Stand on strollers are not suited to everybody but they are a great concept for parents with two young children close in age who require different freedoms and stroller needs.

Folding and Transportation

One of the many concerns with double and tandem strollers is how well they fold and whether they can fit into the car easily. The Joovy Caboose stand on stroller folds easily and compact, and can fit in many types of cars. To fold, undo a clip at the back and fold down, the footrest comes up to give the Caboose a more compact fold.

Storage

Storage on double and tandem strollers have always been a bit of an issue, especially with accessibility problems. The Joovy Caboose has a large storage basket that is accessible from the sides. You are able to have full access to the basket, even when you have both children using the stroller. There are also small pockets on the back of the front seat which can be easily accessed by the parent.

No matter how much storage you have on a stroller there is never enough and even if there is enough storage sometimes you need quick and easy access. The Joovy Parent Holder is a great accessory for any joovy stroller as it holds essential items such as water bottles, cell phones for easy access, zip up pockets for securely transporting valuables such as money, and additional storage space for anything else that needs to be access quickly.
