Rating: 4.0 out of 5 (56 reviews)

Fully equipped with a universal car seat attachment system, this Caboose Stand-On Tandem Stroller in black and grey from Joovy® allows an older child to stand on its rear platform while a younger child rides comfortably in front. If the standing child tires, they can turn around and rest on the padded rear seat. The Caboose can accommodate an infant in the car seat so you can use it as soon as your new arrival comes. It’s easy for parents because the Caboose is lightweight and folds up compactly. It also has a large basket and storage pockets. And the rear platform means no more lifting a heavier, older child in and out of the stroller.

Features

  • Baby Jogger Patented Quick-Fold Technology
  • Accessory Mounting Bracket makes accessorizing your stroller a snap!
  • All-wheel independent suspension offers the smoothest ride in the market
  • 16″ rear and 12″ front quick-release pneumatic tires with lockable swivel front wheels

    I bought this stroller with a recomendation from a co-worker and it was the best investment for my two children. My 9 month old and my 2 and 1/2 years old love it and beg to go for rides all the time. We can actually go places and not fight for him to sit down. He jumps into it and want sto go on rides. Finally a stroller that can do everything with less bulk then a normal double stroller. It could although use a cup holder.

  2. Joyce on May 25th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    I like this stroller, but it does have problems. It is pretty heavy to get in and out of the car, and is big. The basket is almost impossible to get to. The front seat doesn’t recline enough for my 3 month old. There isn’t a cup holder for the parents, but I’ve heard you can buy one now. Even though it has it’s problems I enjoy using it. My 4 year old likes it fairly well and it’s easy to keep track of both kids!

    I got this stroller from my in-laws as a gift when my 2nd daughter was born. I absolutely love it! I find it super easy to open and close, and it’s not too bad getting it in and out of the car. My 3 1/2 year old loves being able to get in and out as she pleases, and loves that she can see where we are going, which she couldn’t do in a regular double stroller. Overall I would rate this stroller as one of the best. My only suggestion would be a cup holder for the adult.

  4. Brenda A on June 20th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    We love this stroller!! I had two other double strollers but they were returned. This stroller is great for my 2 1/2 and 8 month olds. The basket is small and hard to get to. It is easy to maneuver and easy to fold. Great for the mall.

  5. CC on June 26th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    I have a 3 month old and a 2 1/2 year old, I didn’t want to buy a bulky double stroller, and many side by side strollers aren’t for use with newborns. I like that the older one can sit or stand, however, when using the car seat carrier in the front, the seat must be reclined, which therefore cuts into the sitting space in the back. The pocket is not easy to get to, especially if the child is sitting in the back. It takes up a lot of space, but is very easy to fold and unfold. My daugther loves to stand on the back or uses the handles to help push. Since she doesn’t like to ride in the stroller half the time anyway, it offers her a place to sit when she is tired.

  6. KevinC on July 9th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    My wife and I love this stroller. perfect for my 2 kids. We even had my niece standing on the back with the my 2 kids sitting.

  7. NANCY on July 16th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    I have a 3yr and 8 month old and this is the best stroller…I just hate the fact that it does not have a cup holder…but my boys love it and it’s comfortable for both of them.I am a single mom and it was so easy to put together no brain surgery.

  8. Emily on July 18th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    I just bought this stroller last week and I LOVE it! 🙂 I have a 2 and 4 year old. I wouldn’t normally put my 4 year old in a stroller, but we are going to Disney next week and I figured it would be nice for him to rest his lil’ legs.

    We used it for 2 Art Fairs and a Fireworks show last weekend and it worked great. It drove on the grass/rocky areas great. Not so well in the sand, but most strollers aren’t.

    The only con would be the no cup holder or compartment for small items (keys, cellphone, etc.) I did purchase an attachment for a cup holder and I am going to use a bag for on front of a bike to put on the handle for small items.

    It folds up easily and pretty compact compared to most double-strollers. It maneuvers around small areas and crowds pretty well. Plus, it can take the weight. My 2 kids together weight about 70 pounds and it is still easy to push.

  10. Tiffany on July 29th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    I have a 4 year old and one on the way and after doing my research this stroller seemed to be the best to suit my needs. I have already started using this stroller and it is great, easy to use and I am very happy with it. It was so easy to put together, no tools required. It folds up easily and is very compact.

    My only complaint is that it doesn’t hold much in the bottom compartment and there is no where to put my purse or drinks… Joovy makes a parent organizer that I plan to purchase as soon as I can find a place that sells it, that should take care of the problem.

    Overall this is a great stroller to own and I do reccomend it to anyone that has a baby and a toddler to tote around!

  11. M to the ommy, working parent of 3 on August 2nd, 2007 at 12:00 am

    Perfect for my new baby and my 2 1/2 year old who is too big and too old for a traditional double stroller. Lighter and folds flatter than standard stroller systems. Put it together in under 15 minutes with no tools. Also, made mostly of metal as opposed to those plastic numbers you see everywhere. Rolls very smoothly and easy to turn, yesterday I pushed it through the mall one handed, no problem! As mentioned before, it can be hard to access the storage and it could really use a cup holder, but I’m willing to sacrifice those for everything else it offers.

  12. Mandy on August 15th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    I just took my 3 year old son and 3 week old daughter to the mall, and we had a WONDERFUL experience with this stroller. It is easy to maneuver and comfortable for everyone. My 3 year old is very active, and he enjoyed being able to sit or stand. I kept seeing people with the double strollers that are so cumbersome and wanted to tell them all about the Joovy! The only issues I have are that there is no parent cup holder and that my son can’t sit all the way back with the car seat strapped in. This is still the best there is.

  13. Mom of toddler and new baby on August 22nd, 2007 at 12:00 am

    This stoller is a great addition to our family. All of the “problems” I read in previous reviews have seemed to be fixed by the stroller company. You can attach the toddler seat so it doesn’t slide and they have a GREAT parent organizer that is a must with this stoller. I would recommend it to anyone and am getting it for a friend as a gift as well. Another plus is that I can stow it and get is out of the car with ease.

  14. busy mom of 2 on August 26th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    I love this stroller….i recently took my 2 1/2 yr old and my 3 month old to the Bronx Zoo with our old double stroller…..HORRIBLE….thats when i saw someone with the Joovy, and asked them about it. the next day i went out and bought the stroller and i LOVE IT. its wonderful. the only complaints i have is that there is not much room for my 2 1/2 yr old to sit when the infant car seat in in place, and no cup holder/organizer for the parent……but besides that, i love this amazing stroller!!

  15. Kelly and her little men on September 2nd, 2007 at 12:00 am

    I owned alot of double stollers and this is the best one ever.I also have a double jogger stroller that I love but it is heavy and I only use that one for walking. I have 2 boys, 18 months and 4 in November. They love it. It has a nice canopy that covers both of them. A big tray for the little guy with 2 cup holders. There was no parent tray, but I bought [$] a stretch one that is awesome. For about 200.00 this is great. It is so easy to push. I recommend this highly. And I didnt have to bother my husband to put it together, I did it myself.

  16. On the go family on September 4th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    We have a 2.5 year old and an 18 month old and love this stroller. Our 2.5 year old quit riding in a stroller about 6 months ago – she prefers to walk. This stroller is perfect because it gives her a place to rest when she wants to but doesn’t have to be confined to a regular seat and gives us the ability to move quickly through crowds by asking her to jump on when we need to move on. The front seat is nice as well, giving our 18 month old plenty of room -he is even able to nap. We especailly like that the front seat has a five point seat belt and the bench seat has a three point seat belt. The storage basket is large enough to hold a small diaper bag, two pairs of kids shoes, three cups and a camera. The basket is easily accessed by moving the bench seat forward. We opted not to purchase the parent organizer and glad we didn’t – as we saw a few similar strollers this weekend with cup holders/organizers, and it seemed these would be in the way of the child riding on the back.

  17. Jennifer mother of 3 on September 20th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    This is an excellent stroller if you have an infant and a toddler or even if you will be having more children in the next few years. It’s better to spend a little more on this stroller than to have to buy another stroller in the future. This stroller is well made! On the contrary, I had a Graco travel system for my oldest and the stroller back ripped off the frame within the first year! I have a 3 1/2 yr. old and a 2 month old baby and this stroller is the perfect solution. Also, it’s big enough to serve its purpose and small enough to fit through doors! It’s easy to manuever (my 9 yr old pushes the other two around effortlessly). My toddler loves the ability to stand or sit and I love that his seat also has a seat belt should I need to keep him in place. I also like that the organizer is stretchy, a feature I thought I wouldn’t like. I thought it would be flimsy that way but it turns out it’s better because it clings to small items & stretches to fit larger ones, something molded plastic just can’t do. More pluses: it’s lightweight & easy to use. One drawback is that the storage basket at the bottom is not that big but I’ve solved that by having a diaper bag with stroller straps. Another drawback may be that it does not fit in all car trunks. In my own car (a 99 Accord) it fits fine & still leaves room for other items, but I’ve tried it in another car and it barely fit. I own the newest version (Caboose Ultralight) which is a little more expensive, but comes with the parent organizer & claims to be lighter weight, have a larger canopy, & smoother wheels. I haven’t seen it in stores yet. I bought it online.

  18. Kelli-mom of 2 on October 6th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    I’ve got 2 boys, 6 mths and 4 yrs, and this is the perfect stroller for us! My older son loves being able to choose either to sit or stand and to buckle his own seat belt. The baby sits up great in the front. The buckles are easy to undo with one hand and it handles pretty smoothly. However, I would have liked a bigger under basket and a cup holder on the handle bar (I bought the slip on cup/accessory holder seperatly.) Other than that, it meets our needs and will in use for many years to come!

  19. Busy mom of 6 on October 8th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    […]This stroller is extremely hard to open if you are by yourself. This stroller is hard to push, the wheels are so cheap. This was the worst stroller I have ever purchased after 6 children. I would strongly suggest that you do not purchase this stroller.Busy Mom in Montana

  20. Mommy Cooper on October 19th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    I’ve got 2 boys, 6 weeks and 3 yrs, and this is a great stroller for us! My older son loves being able to choose either to sit or stand and to buckle his own seat belt. The baby rides in the carrier attachment in the front. I would have liked a bigger under basket and a cup holder. I would also have liked a larger area for my older son to ride in. When the infant carrier is attached he is unable to lean back in his seat and actually needs to lean forward a bit.

  21. busy mommy on October 20th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    This is a sturdy stroller, we were at an amusmemt park with 1 of our children and we had this stroller and boy its a lot of walking! I was sure glad to have this stroller and a strong husband, i rode on the caboose! Great idea Joovy!

  22. A Mom That Likes to Be on the GO on November 25th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    This stroller is absolutely wonderful. We purchased this stroller when our 2nd daughter was only 2 weeks old. Our 2 year old toddler liked the bigger strollers that we tested at the store, but we went with the Joovy anyway. I go on hour walks with both girls, and it is great. Our toddler prefers to sit. We thought the bench might be too small, but it works great when she is buckled in. Some reviews stated that it was a little heavy. I think it is much lighter than the single stroller we had. The cargo space is not easy to get to, but I have not found a stroller that has an easy cargo spot when you have the carrier latched on.
    I see other moms at the mall with the huge double strollers, and I think that they must be jealous of the Joovy. I also see moms with young toddlers running away while they push their newborn in the single stroller. This stroller makes everyone happy, even in those tight stores that are hard to push strollers in.
    Don’t have another uncomfortable experience on a walk or at the mall. Buy the Joovy today!

  23. Christine on December 6th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    I have two kids,21 months and 9 months. I purchased this stroller because I’m a mom that’s “on the go” and I need something easy and gets me where I need to go without having to lug around a huge stroller. I love this stroller because my oldest can’t seem to make up his mind whether he wants to sit or stand, so this definitely gives him the option. I get so many compliments on this stroller and I love the design of it. It works for me and my kids….

  24. kayle's mom on December 11th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    my two kids are 35 months apart and this stroller is a life saver. it is not perfect as no double stroller option is, but my carseat snaps into it and it is nice that my toddler has the option to sit or stand. also fits in the trunk of my small car and is not too heavy or bulky. great stroller!

  25. motherof4 on December 11th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    I have both good and bad things to say about the stroller. Its very convenient and easy to stroll. It doesnt take alot of space like the traditional double strollers. But the seat doesnt look comfortable. It does’t look wide enough and it looks like the baby is slouching and only the strap is holding her in. It is hard to open and close. And the basket underneath is very hard to get to.

  26. Mom of Infant and Preschooler on December 22nd, 2007 at 12:00 am

    My husband was uncertain when we were first choosing this product, but it has turned out to be the best items we’ve bought with our children. I like it better than traditional travel systems b/c it is lightweight and easy to steer. My 3 1/2 yr old (who is very indecisive most of the time)has many options, from walking to sitting to standing. So many people have stopped me and said “wow, that is a great idea for a stroller”. It is easy to get in and out of the car, especially when I am by myself w/2 children. I highly recommend it, especially over a bulky double stroller.

  27. mom2two on December 28th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    At first i was really happy with this stroller, then it started to squeak and now the noise is soo loud i wish i could get rid of it. I have a 10 wk old and a 3 yr old and their combined weight is far below recommendations for the stroller so what’s the deal??? Very annoying!!!

  28. full time student, stay at home mom on January 22nd, 2008 at 12:00 am

    Well i was shopping around for a stroller that was compatable for a newborn and a toddler because i did’nt want to be lugging around two strollers. And i hated those big bulkey two seaters. But i saw this one and fell in love with it. Its incredible. Its so light weight for me and i am 5’2 and i have no trouble picking it up in to my truck.
    The only down fall is that if the newborn is in the carseat in the frount, then if your toddler is going to be seated she is going to have to lean forward a lot. And their is no room for big diaperbags. and it did’nt come with a cup holder.

  29. Herminia the errand running mom! on January 23rd, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I had seen this stroller […] they were out of stock ended up going to babys r us and found this joovy one. Was so excited cause i have an active 3 1/2 yr old and a 3 month both girls. moves well @ when i go to outlet malls. its just a little heavy to take out of the trunk. but is the greatest thing since disposeable diapers lol

  30. Mom of Two on January 29th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This is a very poorly designed item. There is no room in the basket, it mine as well not be there, there is no adult cupholder(for the price, it should come with the parent attachment). On the manual it says the Joovy wants you to be completely satisfied with your purchase, and not to return it to the store. I called them to ask what to do with it and basically said that every store return policy is different and if the store I bought it at doesn’t take it back, I’m stuck with it. […]

  31. Mom of 3. on January 30th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This is a simple stroller without bells and whistles. I was looking for that. It matches my infant car seat…Babytrend. I needed a travel system with and infant set up and toddler seat/stand on. It is not available unless you make it!!! We get compliments and our carseat and it’s not manufacuted by joovy….they look like they were made for eachother!

  32. Mommy of two girls!! on February 12th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I bought this stroller yesterday and returned it today. I wasn’t happy with the bench seat standing area. I also bought a cup holder for myself. I realized that I didn’t have a second cup holder for my daughter. I ended up buying another stroller just like this from […]. It was cheaper, has cup holders, and a nicer bench seat/standing area for my oldest daughter. Although it wasn’t as heavy as my Graco Double stroller…

  33. Mommy of 2 on February 13th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This is a great stroller. Sometimes, I take my 22 month old toddler alone. When he’s up, he likes to stand as if he’s on a ride. When he gets tired, he sits in the back, and when he’s sleepy, he sits/sleeps in the front. It’s very convenient and afforable!

  34. mommy of 3 on February 22nd, 2008 at 12:00 am

    it is great easy to push and turn. the only thing that sucks is that there is no cup holder you have to buy one. the back part is big enough for my 3 year old who is the size of a 4 year old. it is just a bit of a hastle to get to the basket underneath if you have a big bag. over all i think it is a great buy.

  35. mom of 3 beauties on February 26th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    We bought this double stroller when our third little girl arrived. This is by far the best double stroller we have ever seen or used. Great for shopping and very easy to turn and handle. My girls love it! The only complaint is that it is not very compact for loading in and out of the car but I would buy it a hundred times again regardless!

  36. Katie the crazy mom on March 4th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I absolutely love this stroller. It is very easy to store, very easy to use, and very comfortable. I wouldn’t have any other stroller. My son loves to choose whether he sits or stands and he loves to be able to see his baby brother while riding. I would recommend this stroller any day. I LOVE IT!!!

  37. Tr1f3n4 on March 7th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I’ve loved this stroller the minute I saw it. It accomodates my daughter, who is 3 years old now, and my newborn son, perfectly. My daughter loves it so much because she has the option to sit or stand while we’re going shopping or just going for walk. It is also very easy to steer even with two kids on it, as long as you don’t go over the weight limit. The only drawbacks are: my daughter can’t really sit when the car seat is installed since the front seat has to be fully reclined; and the basket underneath is not easy to access especially when you have big diaper bags. I also wish it comes with the parents organizer because when the car seat is installed, I have to take off the cup holder in the front; but I can live with it coz I bought the parents organizer for only[$]. However, overall, it’s a GREAT stroller when you have two kids under five. It is worth the money, guys..!! ^_^

  38. FamilyGuy on March 7th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This stroller is Awesome. Our 27month old son hated riding in his single stroller so it was a waste of space whenever we brought it with us. We were looking at the double strollers but we didn’t want to waste space and/or carry have something that big. We then saw the Joovy and the Baby Trend’s Sit N Stand so decided to try out both. We fell in love with the Joovy. I never thought my son would ride in it but he loves it. It must be the freedom to go in and out. From reading other comments on this stroller I was worried about the squeaking. Well, It did start to squeak for me after pushing it through the rain. This did not stop me because I love the stroller as well as my son and didn’t want to take it back. For those of you with the same problem, here is my solution. It seemed as though the front wheels squeak yet it’s actually the rear bar that holds the rear wheels. The bar rubs against the inside frame where it goes through. My solution: I Took off the cover to one of the rear wheels and pop out the pin. I then removed the wheel. Next, I pulled the opposite wheel out of the frame on the other side(it will still connect to the opposite wheel). I then made sure to note the washer positions. Now all I did was lube the inside of the holes where the bar goes. I used WD40. Then I put it all back together. Disclaimer: I am in no way responsible for anything you may do to your stroller. This was “my solution” to the very annoying squeaking. We go on dirt paths by our house and it is still holding up. I Love it

  39. leigh on March 9th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I love this stroller. The only downside for me is no cup holder for the parent. i always have a water or something w/ me & need someplace to place it.

  40. Kalena on March 23rd, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I’m a full time working mom with an infant and a three year old and this stroller is magnificent! My three year old will not sit still for anything, but when we got this stroller after my son was born; she saw that she could either stand or sit while riding and get on and off at her leasure! Now I’m not chasing after her in stores! Plus, I love that it can accomodate an infant car seat. The only down side is that it doesn’t have cup holders for the parents or for the older child. Because of this, I have to hang onto my three year old’s juice cup since she has no place to put it.

  41. mom22boyz on April 6th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    Great stroller. no longer than a full sized single,which I love,love,love! Folds up smaller than our lightweight single stroller. Fits our 17mo and 2yo perfectly with room to grow,and manuveurs great! OUr stroller did squeek a bit,I called costumer service,and they recommended silicone spray. [$] @ [@],used it once and it hasn’t squeeked since. PLus b/c the cover is removeable,I was able to recover this very easily to make it more fun for my boys. We get compliments all the time,and looks constantly.

  42. busy mom on April 7th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    this is the best stroller if you have a new born and a toddler upto 4yrs old. my son loves to stand at the back of stroller and sometimes sit down.it is the one thing they really share with the new born and it also keeps him in check.
    only crisis is lack of a cup holder.

  43. AnneMarie - Busy Mama of 2!!!! on April 15th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I bought this because of the great reviews but I am not impressed. It is very uncomfortable for my 7 month old and for my 2 1/2 year old. There is really not much room for him to sit. The front seat only adjusts a couple inches at most!!!The storage space underneath is a joke!!!! You have to buy one of those “S” hanger in order to hang your purse or diaper bag. THe concept is great but not practical. Pretty heavy for a “single” type stroller. I’m going to try it a few more times but I think it will only frustrate me even more! Oh… and I can’t beleive I bought that Joovy attachment for a water bottle or keys… Honestly, I think they need to go back to the drawing board.

  44. Mandi on April 18th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I’ve had this stroller for almost 2 years, so I can attest to its durability and ease-of-use. I picked this stroller over the other double strollers because it folds up much more compactly then the others and is narrow enough to fit where any single stroller can. My four-year-old LOVES being able to get in and out at his leisure and I love the fact that he actually WANTS to ride in it. My 17-month-old has plenty of room and loves the tray for his snacks. The only downside was that there wasn’t a parent organizer/cup holder[…]. I strongly recommend purchasing this, as it has plenty of room for keys, wallet, phone, sunglasses, and a water bottle/drink. I gave this 5 stars (with the organizer) and would purchase this again in a heartbeat!

  45. Mommy of 2. on June 20th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I love this stroller! I researched all double strollers and even bought a front/back double and it was awful! This stroller is so easy to use. My 4 yr old loves being able to stand or sit in the back and my 2 yr old loves sitting straight up for the ride. We purchased this product for a trip to Disneyland and I am so glad we did! The only draw back is little carrier space on the bottom and it doesn’t have a “mommy drink” holder but you can purchase one of those. It even holds baby car seat!

  46. Mandy, mother of 11/2 yr old and 3yr old on June 20th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I have really enjoyed this stroller. My daughter likes to stand and sit. I don’t have to worry about her hitting my son in the head anymore b/c she is either turned around backwards or holding on!
    My only complaint, is there is no drink holder, otherwise I love it!!!!

    The product is good, but hopefully its better when my son gets out of the infant sit and can sit in the regular sit. My daughter has very little room to seat. The whole purpose was for her to be able to sit or stand. The stroller is very heavy and large. It takes my back up in my windstar van. Not too much room to put anything else in there. It is a nice stroller. Wuality is good. The basket underneath can be bigger.

    I love this stroller! It is the easiest to open and close! It is great! I love how light it is and being 8mths. pregnant and I can easily toss it in the car or hide in the closet, because of the way that it folds so flat. My oldest loves to sit on the back and stand, that she’s given the option and my 20 month old loves that she has her own space. I have told all my friends and happy how great this stroller is….

    Cons:
    1) I hate the way they you have to open and close the front seat “tray” (cup holder, or wherever it’s called). It’s not practical to be opening and closing and it’s “press button” seems to be fragile and breakable.
    2) I don’t think it’s very light (maybe if you compare to a double stroller) or it folds that small (it takes a big portion of your trunk).
    3) Small underneath basket.
    4) We cannot lay back front seat, because would have no space for the other child to seat.

    Pros:
    1) It’s easy to fold and open.
    2) It’s easy to manuver.

    I bought this stroller after my second boy came along. I have an umbrella stroller, and a big fancy stroller that came with the car seat. If I would have known about this stroller before buying the fancy big one, I would have saved so much money. Love the fact that you can have a car seat attached to it. My four year old loves it! The only down side is that my 2 year old is starting to grow out of the front chair. His feet hang over the foot rest. Best advise for mom’s having their first baby and plan on having more than one child get this first!!! Don’t waiste money on the single strollers.

    I love the whole idea of this stroller and it works well my son is 3 and my daughter 1. When we go to the zoo or for long walks he can sit down and rest bit. My only problem with this stroller is it breaking! I have gone through 3 of them in like 6 months!! Two of them jammed open and would not shut, I had to put them open in the back seat of my 4 door car. The 3rd one little parts were bending and breaking. It just isn’t very durable. And I HATE the tray, it does make it hard for the kids to get in and out.

    I have a 3 year old and a 2 month old, and I love the fact this suits both of them. My daughter loves to be able to get on the back and sit down after long walks at the park. She hasn’t quite figured out that you can stand on it as well, and tends to hit her head on the bottom of the infant carrier seat. I love how smooth it rides when we first started using it. The bad thing is after 1 month of use it started jamning on me and will not close unless you bang it against a curb really hard. I am going to get another one and give it one more shot to do it’s job. The other thing that I didn’t really like is it dosen’t fit well in my trunk. I have to have the wheels face down in order to close the trunk lid.

    This is the 2nd double stroller I have tried and by far the better of the 2. I used the Graco duoglider first. It was bulky, heavy & difficult to push, even walking on the sidewalk. I then did my homework, asked a few moms and came up with the caboose. My 3 year old loves that she can sit or stand (and hold on … be sure that your child holds on, I could definitely see potential for an accident). It accommodates my Graco infant seat very easily & safely. It is easy to push & fold. My only complaints are the weight & the storage basket. I find it difficult to lift the Caboose into my standard-size SUV, but it’s a double stroller there has to be some weight. As far as the basket, it can be difficult to access but it does fit quite a bit of stuff (especially at the mall). Overall I am very happy with my choice.

    Skip this stroller….and splurge on the Ultralight Caboose. I bought this stroller to replace my Graco Duoglider Double Stroller. Contrary to other people’s reports….they are almost exactly the same size when collapsed. You just have to accept a larger size when you go from a single to a double stroller. I needed a stroller where my 4 yr old daughter could take a break from walking on long day trips. She was too heavy to put in the front of the Duoglider we had, and too big to get in & out of the back seat. Unfortunately, the Caboose is MORE difficult to steer than the Duoglider. My daughter is tall, and is somewhat cramped on the back of the Caboose. My 21 month old son’s legs dangle down over the foot rest onto the front wheels (he’s average size.)He also can’t lay his head back, as the back of the front seat doesn’t come up high enough to support his head. I was so surprised how "skimpy" the Caboose was. I’d only recommend the Joovy for smaller children. My girlfriend has the Ultralight version which offers a MUCH smoother ride, WAY easier to steer (4 lbs lighter than the regular Caboose), and a huge sun shade that is taller & shaded both children. I wouldn’t think that 4 lbs would make such a difference in pushing & turning a stroller…but because of that difference, I’m returning mine & rethinking my stroller choice. On a positive note….the neoprene parent organizer is a MUST HAVE. Doesn’t look like much, but truly holds everything (keys, wallet, cell, 2 drinks, and more.)Worth the extra $$$.
