Bring the Whole Family! Families with three young children will love Joovy’s Big Caboose Stand-On Triple stroller – how else could one parent take three children out at once? The Big Caboose is easy to use and it includes two full size seats with canopies, two child trays and two foot rests – and your 3rd older child can ride on the patented rear platform. If you have multiple children, this will be the first stroller you will use that gives the child in the middle seat ample room. If the standing child tires, they can turn around and rest on the padded rear jump seat. This stroller also includes two universal car seat attachments that accommodate most of the major brands of car seats. The Big Caboose has a huge storage basket below and sealed bearing wheels to help you push heavy loads.

    I bought this stroller for 2yr ,1yr and 6monthes(not all mine). It is not to bad can be hard to turn only because of its length. Is very great for the older child to sit or stand but the second seat sits high so at first she could not see pass the seat. Takes up alot of room in the back of my grand caravan

    Wow if I had as many kids as the previous comment leaver (ya right they’re not all her’s) I sure would need a nifty stroller like this. Although I dont have that many children I have used this and I do like how it works.

    I have 19 month old twins and a 3 month old. I had been stuck in the house as no stroller would alow me to get out and function with all three kids. Yes, this stroller is big, but wow! My baby can be in his infant seat in the stroller and both seats have plenty of room. My dd loves to stand backwards as we walk around. It gave me some freedom to go out. Well worth the money, to protect my sanity.

    This stroller is great. I can fit my 1 year old twins in the seats, my 4 year old on the back and my 2 year old in between the seats in either a stand up or sit down position. Thats 4 kids in one stroller. But it does not fit in my mini van. I have to put the seat down just to take it and then I dont have enough room for the kids. All in all still great, what can you expect from a stroller you can fit 4 kids in it.

    I have a 3 year old a 20 month old and 3 month old and this stroller makes it easier for me to go out with all 3 kids by myself. It totally met my expectations because my youngest is still in the infant seat, the stroller accomadates this as well. It is a little long and heavy and is tricky to get into the car if you do not have an SUV however, in the long run it is sturdy and meets my needs so I can deal with it being big. The middle seat is roomy and the canopies are big to protect them from the sun and my 3 year old loves being able to stand on the back or sit if he wants. Also it folds up and down very easily by looking at it you would think it could be difficult but very simple. Would recommend to anyone in my situation, although the price could be alittle cheaper but overall great product.

    I bought this stroller when I was expecting my 3rd baby boy. When my 3rd was born, the other two were 3 and 1 1/2 years old. I bought the stroller specifically for the 3rd seat, to use when we would be out all day at a fair, park, or for long shopping trips. The stroller is extremely hard to push and steer if you are not on a flat smooth surface. Even when walking on sidewalks with a slight slant, the weight of the stroller veers into the slant. The stroller is very hard on the wrists and often it takes 2 people to push, one behind to do the actual pushing and the other to walk beside the stroller to guide it. That is my biggest qualm with this stroller, otherwise I love it. It’s roomy, fits all of my kids comfortably, easy to fold, and I am able to store everything I need under the stroller.

    I am so happy that i got this stroller. i had been on the fence for about a year as to whether or not to buy this, since my 3 kids didn’t all fit in the duoglider (i would squeeze 2 into the backseat with it all the way flat). but i am glad i spent the money.

    Pros: big enough seats for the older 2, easily removable canopies, nice big trays ( removable), fits in my Saturn Vue, big basket, good brakes, tiltable canopies, as heavy as the duoglider, spilled drinks just bead up on the fabric!

    cons: a little cumbersome to lift once folded into the car, hard to push on gravel (what stroller isn’t?-just let the kids out for a minute), a little hard to steer when heaviest child is in the front seat, doesn’t stand up on its own when folded (just as well-don’t want this mammoth landing on my kids!), no parents tray (they sell a holder thing which i may buy).

    but hey, those cons are NOTHING compared to the arguements between my kids when there is no place for them to sit and have a snack. and i can get out!

    this stroller was worth it. I am 5’2″ and can maneuver this thing quite well. i am pleased that i bought it and wish i had sooner.

    if you buy it, you will find that other moms stare at you more and come up to ask you where you got it!

    I have a 2-year-old and am expecting twins soon, and I spent a lot of time online looking for a stroller that had a stand-on element. The Joovy certainly has this, and LOTS of space, but I failed to note its measurements before I ordered it. The thing is so long, it won’t fit in my Honda Odyssey! I would have to remove a second-row seat just to fit the whole thing in through the trunk, and I can’t do that with the seating arrangement that I will soon require. Even if I had made it fit, it’s almost too long to imagine wheeling it through the mall or anyplace useful. Also, arranging the seats with adaptors PLUS a special tightening belt just to put two infant carriers on it seemed like an awful lot of trouble. I ended up buying a Graco DuoGlider, and my toddler will just have to put up with walking!

    Yes, the Joovy Big Caboose it heavy and a bit tough to steer, but what do you expect for a stroller holding 3 kids, a diaper bag and shopping bags?! It is the only option out there that is reasonably priced. I have a 3 year old, 14 month old and new baby. All fit safely and comfortably in this stroller. It fits diagonally in the back of my Honda Odessy without a problem, even with the car seat adapter in it. If you are looking for a stroller that allows you to take 3 little ones to the mall, food store, walks, etc., this is it. Think of it as an amazing workout for your arms!

  10. Pam on September 10th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I like to be able to bring all 3 kids in this stroller because they all have a seat and there’s no arguements. i can get out with all 3 and i feel freer!

  11. momto4boys on October 10th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I have three boys under three: two years, one year, and three weeks. Today was the first day that I went out with this stroller and it was great! I have a Honda Pilot and I was concerned that it wouldn’t fit, but it does. I have half of the back row up for my two year old to sit in, and it fits diagonally with the rest of the third row folded down. I do have to remove the infact carrier adapter, but it is worth it to have the freedom of leaving the house with all three little ones w/o any help! This stroller is very large, but what can you expect for a triple? Considering its size, it is fairly easy to manuever and it is also narrow enough to fit down store aisles. I have a warning though: this stroller generates a TON of comments, questions, and stares! It is the tractor trailer of strollers! Overall, I would most definitely recommend this stroller to moms with three little ones!

  12. Mom of Five on November 30th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    Yes, this stroller is big and a little hard to steer, but it holds at least three kids at a time what do you expect? I have 3 under the age of 4. My older two 12 and 8 can push the little three around. I shopped around before buying this one I couldn’t find one that would hold 2 infant seats for our twins plus our 4 yr old. I would buy this stroller agian I wish I would have found this one sooner.

  13. Super Mom of 5 on April 6th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I use this product to be able to get out of the house…period. This makes toting around 2-2yr old’s and a 3 yr old a breeze! I love the "stadium" seating that the two youngest ones get, the backseat isn’t hiding behind the front! My 3 yr old loves the sit & stand feature! He can sit on the stool or he can move it out of the way and stand….I also like the buckle back there because if he is having a bad day, like all 3 year olds do, then I can simply buckle him when he decides to run too far!!!

    The stroller moves with ease, very easy to push. Turning can be a little tricky at times, but its a triple stroller and I really expect that. Its very lightweight. Very simple to collapse. It fits in my van great, it is very long when folded up…although its almost flat which is great!

    I love the big canopies which are removable. The storage underneath is great..I love the parent storage! The seats are very roomy and there’s plenty of space in between seats!!

    The only thing that I wish was different about this stroller is: I wish the trays would swing open. Sometimes I have to "pull" a few times before the childs’ feet are free. They are removable but its kind of hard to remove them.

    Overall this stroller has been wonderful for us!

    I have been searching everywhere for the *perfect* double stroller. I hated the duoglider after my twins were out of their carriers (bulky and the twin in the back constanty kicks the one in the front)and I returned 2 umbrellas because they couldn’t fit throught doorways as claimed.
    I found this at a tag sale barely used and it’s perfect. Yes, its heavy. Yes, its pretty long and can be hard to steer. BUT – after using it, I love it & my husband and I decided it was just what we needed. Afterall we have 3 kids and can push them all around TOGETHER happily and pretty easily. No calling after my older child to come back and hold onto my hand or the stroller, she just hops on. My 4 year old was SOOO excited to get to ride too, and the 12month old boys can both see everything and not get kicked. Plus, there is a snack tray which most umbrellas don’t have. It also fits easily in my minivan. There is ALOT of storage underneath, and it’s a hard bottom, not fabric.
    The first time I took it out I was apprehensive of the size (yes it’s big, I get a lot of comments!) but it is so worth it. I have even done grocery shopping by myself, pushing all 3 kids with one hand (95 lbs of children alone…) and pulling a full cart behind me.
    By the way – I’m 5’0" 120lbs!!

    I brought this stroller because I had a third baby on the way and my other two were 1 1/2 and 3 1/2. I wish someone in Joovy’s manufacturing department could just stand that thing upright and convince themselves that it’s not unusually tall. It’s as tall as me and I’m 5″3 1/2! That’s crazy. It is extremely hard to steer, because go figure, it’s huge! It’s like you’re not even pushing a stroller, you’re picking it up and down all over the sidewalk. Not worth it, I couldn’t even use it and it’s just sitting downstairs.

    We had been looking for a stroller that could accommodate our twins and our 2 year old. This seemed to be the best solution and most cost effective one as well. The great thing about the Joovy is that you can set the baby seats in and still have a jump seat for the toddler. Our 2 year old likes to be able to stand up while riding. You also don’t have the problem of being to wide to fit through doors as with some of the side by side strollers. Some things you need to know about the stroller: It is extremely heavy and bulky. Which should be expected when trying to carry all three kids! It barely fits in our SUV. It is also somewhat difficult to steer when you have the toddler on the back riding. It seems to be a bit unbalanced. All in all we do really like the stroller.
