Strolling with children of different ages is made easy with a tandem that does it all. The Caboose VaryLight is ideal for strolling with children of different ages & offers flexible seating as families grow.

Our new Caboose technology includes a telescopic frame that expands to a full size double in seconds to accommodate when more room is needed. This means the front seat can be fully reclined (to 3 positions) and the VaryLight can be extended to accommodate and give the rear rider more room to sit comfortably. In its shorter length, there is still room for the older child to stand. The beauty is that you can customize seating as needed, all in a matter of seconds. Car seat adapters (brand specific and sold separately) can be used in the front, rear or both allows strolling from infancy. When not in use, the Caboose VaryLight can be folded with a one-handed action.

We’ve done our best work and think you’ll love the upgrades to the newest Caboose starting with putting it together! It’s a breeze!

Easy functionality and practical features are keystones of the Caboose VaryLight. We think you deserve the best quality when strolling with two children. That’s why we’ve used the best quality materials and components in constructing this awesome stroller!

The Boobs are Wonderful! So is the Caboose VaryLight!

Dear Doodie,

My husband Michael and I are proud to announce the arrival of Anthony James on November 21st, 2014. He is a blessing!

We are also blessed from winning the contest. We love the Joovy products!

The Caboose VaryLight feels so durable and smooth. Anthony loves riding in it. It also fits in the back of our car, a Subaru Impreza hatchback, without any issues. I like that I am able to easily fold and unfold it.

The Boob bottles are wonderful. I breastfeed, so I don’t use them everyday. I do pump though, so that Michael is able to feed Anthony sometimes. The pump attachments have been very helpful for that. I haven’t had any issues with the bottles. They are easy to use. We have a couple other types of bottles, but this is our favorite one. Some of our other ones have a tendency to leak. The plastic on one of the other bottles becomes too hot after being in the bottle warmer.

Sincerely,
Barbara, (Anthony’s mom)

Why Tandem Strolling is the Best Option for Strolling With Two

Caboose_UL_Double

 

 

The universal question asked by every parent expecting their second, third or……(you name the number) child is, “what’s the best double stroller?”  This can be a confusing and oftentimes overwhelming purchase. What do you choose: a side by side or tandem? This post is an overview of our line of tandem strollers, why tandem strolling is currently “hot” right now with parents and how these unique strollers have evolved over the last 10 years.

It all started with our original Caboose design. This genius double stroller was brought to market with the sole purpose of strolling with children of different ages, a concern when number 2, 3, or 4 is expected. The idea is simple, a younger child rides up front while the older child sits or stands in the rear.  Older kids often think they want to walk but, as we all know, if one is out longer than expected, or that older child gets tired, it’s nice to have options so a meltdown doesn’t ensue.

The uniqueness of the original Caboose is in its incredibly small and compact frame. This small and maneuverable stroller has a traditional full size reclining front seat for a younger child and a bench seat and standing platform in the rear for an older child. It has a compact fold and is practical and easy to use. Parents love the functionality and older kids love the fun factor of riding on the back. We say, ‘hop on board’ to convey the fun and independence this offers an older child.  The Caboose Comparison Chart (below) compares all the Cabooses in the Joovy line.

A few years later, we introduced the Caboose Ultralight, a lighter weight stroller with some nice upgrades: a larger canopy, 3-position reclining seat, sealed bearing wheels and a parent organizer (included). The frame is architecturally the same as the original Caboose, just lightened up a bit with an alloy construction. This Caboose Ultralight is a great stroller for Disney trips, airport travel and everyday use.

In 2013, we added the Caboose Too Seat, a full size reclining seat that installs over the bench seat. This genius accessory is perfect for strolling with two children who are close in age  (and too young for the 2.5 year age grading for the rear stand on platform).  The seat is extremely easy to install and remove when the older child is ready to ‘hop on board’. The Caboose Too Ultralight is packaged with the Caboose Too Seat included.

The Big Caboose is just that; BIG by design and ideal if you have twins and an older child or triplets. It is also a solution for strolling with 3 young children. The Big Caboose comes with 2 infant car seat adapters. This triple seater has two stadium full size seats that recline to 2 positions. An older child can sit or stand on the rear and the Caboose Too Seat adds a third, full size seat if needed.

 

IMG_8022 - Version 2

 

Over the years, we’ve had some awesome feedback that has compelled us to improve upon the Caboose in it’s original form.

While parents love the Caboose, here’s a list of what they wanted updated or changed:

  • add more sitting room for the older child (riding in the rear) when the front seat is reclined
  • have the infant car seats attach in the rear rather than the front seat
  • improve the wheels
  • have an auto-lock
  • have a standing fold
  • make tray and canopy easier to take on and off
  • add cup holders

We’ve answered these requests by introducing the Caboose VaryLight, a completely updated and redesigned Caboose. The Caboose VaryLight offers maximum “vary”ability so you’re ready for everything!

Our new Caboose technology includes a telescopic frame that expands to a full size double in seconds to accommodate when more room is needed. This means the front seat can be fully reclined (to 3 positions) and the VaryLight can be extended to accommodate and give the rear rider more room to sit comfortably. In its shorter length, there is still room for the older child to stand. The beauty is that you can customize seating as needed, all in a matter of seconds. And, ‘hop on board’ still applies and adds the element of excitement for your older child. More seating space for front and rear riders. Heavily padded front seat with side wings offer ultra comfort and support.

The gorgeous graphite frame gives the Caboose VaryLight a classy, modern look while offering the best in durability and function. Constructed of 6061 aircraft aluminum, the Caboose VaryLight has an overall capacity of 110 lbs or 55 lbs per seat.

The Caboose VaryLight has the very best stroller wheels money can buy. These PU (polyurethane) wheels are incredibly durable and will withstand strolling on virtually any type of terrain. Like skateboards and rollerblades, we’ve used sealed ball bearings in the wheels which are designed to reduce friction and support heavy loads. Totally worth the investment, your children will benefit from these upgraded wheels. Expect the smoothest ride with the Caboose VaryLight.  These wheels are quick-released for easy removal when you want to store your Caboose.

Car seat adapters (brand specific and sold separately) can be used in the front or rear so baby is close to mom or dad. These new car seat adapters are ‘click in’ and sold separately. The Caboose VaryLight front seat can easily be removed to convert the stroller to a frame stroller to carry the infant car seat. In this configuration, there is still room for a standing rider or, the VaryLight can be extended to use the bench seat.

A swing away tray that is accessible from either side and easily removable is an enhanced feature of the Caboose VariLight. Additional cup holders are easily attached (sold separately) and these can be used in the rear position as well.

When not in use, the Caboose VaryLight can be folded with a one-handed action. The standing fold is efficient and includes an auto-lock feature.

The gorgeous graphite frame gives the Caboose VaryLight a classy, modern look while offering the best in durability and function. Constructed of 6061 aircraft aluminum, the Caboose VaryLight has an overall capacity of 110 lbs. or 55 lbs. per seat. Canopy and seats are made of durable 600D nylon. The canopy has an extended sun visor for extra coverage.

Check out some of the configurations below. With the Caboose VaryLight, you’ll be ready for everything!
