Between my sister and I, we have five children so whenever we get together we always groan and moan when a older child gets tired and wans a ride in the stroller when we only each have a spot for one.  Joovy has come to the rescue with the Greenie Caboose Ultralight Stand-On Tandem Stroller

The new Ultralight Caboose is the lightest, most maneuverable tandem stroller available on the market today.

At 21 pounds the Caboose Ultralight is 20% lighter than the original Caboose and far lighter than most double strollers.  When we say maneuverable, we mean it!  The Caboose Ultralight can navigate narrow spaces with ease. The large, sealed ball bearing wheels give your children a smooth ride and you’ll find it is super easy to push. And thanks to its minimal weight, you can steer with just one hand!Kids absolutely love the independence and “cool” element the Caboose offers. The patented Stand-On-Tandem design gives your older child the freedom to choose between walking, standing and sitting. Parents tell us this single feature alone has given their child a head start at developing a healthy independence – a “win-win’ for both parents and kids alike.The Caboose Ultralight offers a cool, modern style and its tough 600D nylon fabric is available in rich, vivid colors: Blueberry, Orangie, Greenie, Brownie and Black.
 
 Offering families options and flexibility, the Joovy Ultralight Caboose is a great investment for your growing family.

Retails for $269.99

My take:  Set-up took less than 5 minutes, but here is a picture of all the pieces right out of the box:

You will need to attach the wheels, parent organizer and canopy which are clearly outlined in the manual.  Now for the real test, did it help ease the tired aching feet of the older kids and give them a much needed break?  You bet it did and we literally have kids fight over whose turn it is next.

Some details I love, the front seat has a 3 position recline feature so in case a child wants to take a nap they will be comfortable.  Large storage basket easily stores a large diaper bag with extra room available and it even has mesh pockets on each of the sides for additional storage, the canopy can be adjusted to cover almost any angle so those bright sun rays don’t shine in your children’s eyes and the rear seat is padded if your child chooses to sit down and has padded grips to hold onto.

This stroller turns on a dime, it is actually one of the easiest to manuever which astounds me because I can easily navigate around obstacles while pushing 2 children better than I can with most 1 child strollers.  The aspect that I was most concerned about….how flat does it fold also surprised me, take a look:

This stroller is ideal for that second child who can’t make up their mind if they want to walk or be pushed.  They can easily hop on to the  Joovy Greenie Caboose Ultralight Stand-On Tandem Stroller when they need a rest without the parents having to cart along a second stroller.
