Joovy Caboose Ultralight Stand-On Tandem Stroller Review

Standard

Introduction

Moving around with a young family can be extremely challenging. However, the Caboose Ultralight Stand-On Tandem Stroller from Joovy is specially designed to make this much easier. It is a highly maneuverable, lightweight and compact unit that can accommodate an infant and toddler at the same time. The stroller has the front-facing baby seat with the ability to accommodate different infant car seats. It also features a stand-on platform and a toddler seat, which can hold children that are more than 2 ½ years old.

Ideally, both seats can accommodate children that are over 40 inches tall and 45 pounds in weight. At just 21 pounds, the product is 20 percent lighter than most of the double strollers that are on the market today. It is a faster and smoother stroller, thanks to the sealed ball-bearing wheels, which allow for greater maneuverability. Moreover, you do not need to worry about where you will keep your essentials like the cellphone and keys as it has enough room for that. It also has a cup holder, where you can keep your drinks cool.
Features
Some of the main features of this stroller include;

1. The Multi-position Reclining Seat

The stroller features a large, comfortable and fully adjustable front seat with a five-point harness, and a three-point harness on the rear bench seat, which is meant to offer optimal comfort to the little one. Whether your child needs to sit in an upright position or take a nap as you stroll around with them, you simply need to adjust the seat in order to provide them with the comfort they need. Whether you are trekking through the zoo or simply browsing at the mall, your child will definitely love the versatility that is offered by the Joovy Caboose ultra-light stroller. The stroller is extremely simple to recline and it does not require any special tools to do this. Moreover the padded and adjustable rear seat allows your child to rest even in the standing position. This makes it one of the most versatile strollers on the market.

2. The Oversize Canopy

The oversize canopy is designed to provide optimum protection against the scotching sun, harmful ultraviolet rays as well as the rain. The sun visor extension offers enough shade to protect the child from the harmful elements. This enables you to move around with your little ones during a hot sunny day, bright summer days or even in rainy weather. The canopy covers the front seat as well as the back seat, which means that both children will be protected. Moreover, the canopy can be reclined either forward or backward based on the position of the sun. This ensures that your children are always under the shade regardless of the time of day or the position of the sun. It is an elegant canopy that can be folded when the weather is relatively fair. This makes it one of the best strollers to use under different weather conditions.

3. The Foldable Design

The stroller also features a foldable design. You can fold this stroller by following simple steps. Moreover, the process does not require any special tools. This makes it a highly portable unit that you can take virtually anywhere with ease. It can fit in the trunks of most compact cars, which makes it the best stroller to use during vacations or when going to the park with little ones. The stroller folds compactly and locks for easier storage as it takes up very minimal space. Moreover at just around 21 pounds, the stroller can easily be carried around for instance when placing it in or out of the car. In the same way, setting up this stroller requires very minimal effort as you can set it up in less than ten minutes. The good thing is that it always comes with a detailed manual to guide you through the entire process.

4. Large Storage Space

The stroller also has a large storage basket, which offers enough space to hold your gear. Moreover, the basket has extra mesh pockets on each side for added storage space. This enables you to carry all the essentials you need for your trip or vacation. The basket is located beneath the seats and can easily be accessed even when the child is seated. This eliminates the need for carrying a backpack with all your essentials stacked in. Besides the basket, the stroller also comes with the parent organizer right next to the handle bar. Here you can store your cellphone, iPod, keys and anything that you do not want to lose. Moreover, it also has two cup holders where you can keep your water bottles or beverage. The organizer has a rear zippered pocket and is machine-washable. It is quite essential as it keeps the most essential items right at your fingertips for easier access.

5. The Four-Wheel Suspension & Linked Rear Brakes

The stroller’s four wheel suspension system allows you to have a smooth ride on different surfaces and terrains. It is a highly maneuverable unit that can navigate through narrow spaces with ease. The large and sealed ball-bearing wheels will guarantee your little ones a smooth ride as this makes it quite easy to push. Moreover, the stroller has a smooth and extremely effective braking system. The double-action brakes are fully sandal-foot friendly and quite easy to use. You simply need to apply some little pressure and the whole system will come to a halt. This is very important when moving through busy streets or down a slope. The linked rear brakes provide additional security whenever the stroller is parked. This provides additional safety for your children as they will not roll on or topple over once you have braked and locked it.

6. Infant Car Seat Adapter

The Joovy Caboose tandem stroller also features the universal car seat adapter, which can fit most car seat brands. The adapter easily snaps into the tray housing. Any compatible car seat will therefore nest right in the position of the front seat, creating a wonderful place where your infant can ride comfortably. Whenever the car seat adapter is not in use, the child’s tray can be snapped into place, providing a place for beverages, snacks and even toys for your child. The stroller is compatible with a number of car seat models, including; the Evenflo Embrace, Graco Snug Ride Series & Safety Seat, the Compass Light and Portable Infant Car Seat, Peg Perego Primo Viaggio & Primo Viaggio SIP, the Britax Companion and Maxi-Cosi Mico among others.
