The best, lightest, most maneuverable Caboose yet! The Caboose Ultralight is so compact, maneuverable and lightweight, you might forget that it’s a tandem stroller. At a mere 21 pounds, the Caboose Ultralight is 20% lighter in weight than the original model and far lighter than most double strollers. The Ultralight is also ultra-maneuverable because it has sealed ball bearing wheels (if that doesn’t mean anything to you; it is faster and smoother. Think rollerblades and skateboards). Moms and Dads will really love the neoprene Cool Essentials Parent Organizer too. It has plenty of room to store your keys, cell phone, etc., and the cup holder will help keep your drinks cool. The deluxe sun canopy will offer more protection for your children on sunny days out. Your life, our strollers. The new arrival has made a good thing even better!


  • Multi-position flat reclining seat with 5 point harness and memory recline
  • Height adjustable handle, canopy and legrest
  • Parent’s and child’s trays with cupholders and tray insert
  • Lightweight yet sturdy aluminum frame
  • Can be used as a travel system with the Chicco KeyFit or KeyFit 30 infant car seats

    I LOVE THIS STROLLER…I have a 6 month old and a 4 1/2 year old who is not quite ready to walk all the time. This stroller allows him to get on and off quickly without me having to lift him. It is perfect for walks. Easy to open and close, lightweight so I can put in the trunk with one hand.***The only problems that I have with it are that when the infant carseat is on it, there is little room for the older one to sit on the little bench but plenty for him to stand…not enough storage room, while shopping I have to hang the bags and the diaper bag on the lock lever, when the younger one sits in the front without his carseat, it doesn’t really lay him back far enough to take naps.(he still does though so it must be comfortable to him) Other than these few things, which I can totally live with, it was the best money we ever spent.

    **just a little tip that we have figured out, when the infant carseat is on the front, if you lock the foot thing up, it serves as a tray that you can put your diaper bag on and put the strap under the carseat and it stays put…**

    This Stroller works great!!! Easy to use and rides smooth. The only complaint is that my older babe cant sit down much when the infant carseat is in, but she’s usually standing anyway…

  3. New York City Mom on February 17th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This stroller is so conpact and the rides are so smooth! My son sits in the front and sometimes my 2 daughters sit in the back. It is so light and i would recomed it to everyone!

    I love this stroller!! My newborn could ride in a carseat in the front and my toddler was free to hop on and off the back. The safety belt for the toddler is solid and easy to use. I took my two kids to the local science center in it. Not only is it skinny enough to fit through all the tight isles, but it glides like a dream. Not to mention that it gave my toddler the freedom she wanted with the safety I wanted.Their is a similar(cheaper) stroller like this, but it is wobbly,bulky,and does not have nice grips.

    This is our second double stroller. My 2 yr old was getting to the point where he hates sitting in the the stroller. We have a 10 month old also she gets to ride in front in this stroller which she loves. With our other double my son which is heavier obviously would sit in the front which made it hard to manuever not so much for myself but for my wife and it was quite a bit longer.So for a double which i feel like we are pushing just one child cause or how smooth it rolls and how light weight and easy for turning. My only problem which will resolve soon as for i have only had it for a week or so, is getting my son used to the features he has now…. He loves his options just not quite sure which he likes more sitting or standing.

    this is a great stroller if you have a toddler and a baby. what I love is that when my toddler is sitting down in the back, he is facing me. and my baby in the carseat is facing me. the stroller steers well and is narrow enough for aisles in department stores. it is also light enough to lift. i also love that it is shorter than average tandem strollers and my oldest son will still be able to stand or sit on the back when he is older. he is 3 now and likes stroller rides. the only thing I dont like is that he cant lean back when he is sitting down because he will hit his head on the carseat. he gets mad sometimes and yells for me to move the carseat. but it wont be a problem in a few months when my baby is old enough to sit in the front seat without the carseat.

    I have a Duo Glider and it was falling apart after 2 years of heavy use. We are getting ready for a summer full of trips, etc and was looking for a new stoller. I had bought a side by side and my son looked like a giant in there and it seemed wide. So I decided to try this stoller. I LOVE it! I didn’t get it from here, because they were always sold out, but this stoller is great both my kids love it. It’s light weight, sturdy, and is super easy to fold and store in my trunk with lots of room left. I wish I had only found this stroller sooner.

    Love the stroller. Found it cheaper at another retailer and the parent organizer was included

    I researched EVERY double stroller out there & ended up purchasing the Joovy Ultralight. I have a newborn and a 3yr old boy who I like to contain, so I was nervous about the option to stand for him. He does love riding on the stroller standing up, there is not much room for him to sit with the carseat on. When he stands, he harasses his sister in the infant seat most of the time. Overall, the stroller is pretty light & easy to push…very narrow to get thru aisles & I can still open doors & get the stroller through on my own. I would recommend it to others with a baby and a toddler, however there are a few downsides: My son is constantly hitting the underneath basket with his foot which makes the snap fly off and I have to re-attach it all the time. Also, my 3yr old can undo the seat snaps himself, so I can’t really contain him and make him sit on the bench. The canopy broke after 2 weeks, but Joovy was kind enough to send me a whole new canopy with no questions asked. This is my first double stroller so I don’t have much to compare it to, but it seems to do the job pretty well without being so big & bulky like some of the other double strollers out there. I also bought mine through another company..I had a hard time finding one because so many stores were sold out!

    This is the third double stroller we have purchased! And it will be the last! We absolutely love it. The ultralight is better than the original joovy because it is so light weight. The wheels roll like butter and it is so unbelievably easy to manuever. I was leary because some people mentioned that they had to remove the carseat carrier piece. Come literally takes 2 seconds to do so and it weighs less than either one of my kids. It is very strudy and the design is wonderful. It is also the ONLY sit and stand combo that you can place a carseat in the front and still have room for your older child to sit in the back.

  11. Mom of 2 on November 28th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    So here it is, Black Friday, and my first opportunity to use my new Joovy stroller. I can go shopping again (and with my 1 yr old AND my 2 yr old)!!! I can actually manage to get the stroller out of my trunk ONE-HANDED while I hold my daughter! I can even get through the aisles without knocking things off of the racks! This is the best stroller ever (and I’ve tried plenty—doubles, singles, umbreallas). I feel as though I have reclaimed a part of my prior life—you know, the part when you could run errands with ease.

    I think this is a great stroller for two, very compact, lightweight and functional. I was worried that my 20 month old might be to young for the back seat, but she loves it and rides fine. The only drawback is the under basket for storage is way too small and very awkward to get at. I end of having to hang the diaper bag from the handles which winds of smacking my daughter in the face. Not good.

  13. Mom of 2 on June 7th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I use the stroller for my 2 month old and my 3 year old. I have my 2 month old in the car seat and the attachment piece is super easy to use. Stroller unfolds and folds quickly and easily. Wheels turn like they are supposed to. Stroller is super lightweight. I’m new to running and I run with it, in PA with hills. Extemely easy to lift as well.
    Only negative I might have is the access and ease to get your bag in and out. And that my 3 year old does sometimes kick me when I’m pushing but hey its worth it to not have to push a double stoller.

  14. Jean on June 17th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    My older daughter loves it.

  15. Momager on June 30th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I have a 2-month & a 2-year old. The car seat makes for a tight fit while the older one sits on the back. (limits the head room) The bottom seat cushion for the older one is built to slide forward/backward, but when buckled in the forward position is too far forward not allowing for enough room to put his feet on the foot rest. These items are not ideal and are a bit awkward. However, I do like the stroller. I figure it will be better when the baby doesn’t need the car seat and my 2 year old is a little older himself. I’m keeping it as it maneuvers well and is easy to put in & out of the car.[…]

  16. Dad of two on July 24th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    Very portable and easy to fit into almost any car. Stylish and lightweight.

  17. Kara on August 3rd, 2009 at 12:00 am

    Very light-weight! More compact than my single stoller. Very easy to maneuver. Would like a little more storage (but so compact… who cares!?)

  18. mom of two and growing on August 3rd, 2009 at 12:00 am

    This is an awesome stroller for two small children. I got this because my four year old can ride in the back and my infant in the front. Even my seven year old can hop on to stand for a bit if we are somewhere she gets tired of walking. The stroller is really easy to maneuver and quite compact when folded up. It seems really sturdy and like it will last.

  19. Mom of 2 on August 17th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    Love the parent/child cup holder on the handle. Basket is very small & hard to access. Easy to fold-up & fits well in minivan. Seemed to be the best bet for my 18-mos-old & just 3-yr-old. Also adapts for infant carriers.
