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.
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.
