Did you know that the original Caboose with its stand-on platform and bench seat was designed by a grandfather in London? Yes, this is true. This grandfather was an engineer/fireman who took his grandchildren to work every morning. And, as you can imagine, these grandkids were of different ages. Sometimes the older one wanted to walk and sometimes he wanted to ride, sound familiar? It was during these walks that he envisioned a stroller with a built in standing platform and a bench seat for his older grandchild. After experimenting on paper, he put his hands to work and created the Caboose. With its short and sturdy frame, it was the perfect stroller: easy to maneuver and with plenty of space for both children!
Over the years, our popular Caboose has been modified and improved upon but one thing remains true: this is the perfect solution for strolling with children of different ages. Is it the ‘sexiest’ stroller on the market? No, not hardly. But, one thing is certain: it is the most practical stroller for strolling with two children of different ages. And, can you keep a secret? Your older child will absolutely LOVE the independence the Caboose offers him/her. Not only is it cool to ride on the back, the new baby isn’t old enough to have this privilege yet, only ‘big’ kids can ride here!
The original Caboose is still in our line. Check out the evolution of the Caboose with these links: Caboose, Caboose Ultralight, Caboose Too Ultralight, Ergo Caboose, Caboose VaryLight. While each Caboose offers unique and different features, the key feature is your ability to stroll with children of different ages. You get to choose which Caboose fits your family best!
This week, we are celebrating the newest introduction to the Caboose line: the VaryLight Caboose. This gorgeous, new and improved design still has the original functionality as the original Caboose but also includes new, high-end components and additional features.
The new Caboose VaryLight features:
For week 2 of #JoovyRush, we are offering (2) prizes: your choice of a Caboose, Caboose Ultralight, Caboose Too Ultralight, Ergo Caboose, Caboose VaryLight. We ask you to visit our website to choose which Caboose is best for you!
There’s nothing like first wheels! When if comes to learning to ride a bike, a balance bike is the best bet for learning with confidence.
The Joovy Bicycoo offers a stable and robust foundation for taking the first step towards bicycle riding. As soon as your child can straddle the frame, they are old enough to start balancing. The beauty of this approach is that they’ll master balancing first and then naturally be ready for the next step: pedaling. It makes sense to isolate one skill before introducing the next.
Should you decide this is the better way to teach your child to ride a bike, we’d love for you to consider our Bicycoo pictured here with Paul. He looks pretty happy today!

Joovy attended the DFW Family Expo at Market Hall over the weekend with a capacity crowd! This annual event hosted by Metroplex Baby & Kids donates 100% of ticket proceeds to Children’s Medical Center. We were excited to share our line-up of strollers, highchairs, playards, bottles and toys with so many fun and enthusiastic parents, grandparents and kids! It was really fun to see so many families out for the day and we loved making new friends and visiting with old friends as well. Click the image below (or here) to see a time lapse of part of the event and be sure to scroll through all the pictures below!
At Joovy, we’re all about active families. We love to see moms and dads embracing an active lifestyle with their children, especially from an early age. With three young sons under their roof, Melissa Joan Hart and her husband Mark Wilkerson certainly have an active family. And, we are really proud that they’re an active Joovy Family.
Melissa shared with us recently, “We have become a very Joovy family with the boys race cars, the baby’s Caboose VaryLight stroller, and all of our favorites including the Foocots; which allow the boys to sneak into our bedroom on certain nights and sleep by the bed……but minus the disturbed sleep for mommy and daddy. Major bonus for us!”
We loved Melissa as Clarissa and Sabrina and now our favorite show is Melissa & Joey on ABC Family Network. Be sure to tune in on Wednesdays at 8/7c or check your local listing. Also, you’ll want to be sure to check out her new book, “Melissa Explains It All.”
If you love Melissa, leave a comment below and we’ll be sure to share with her!
Our Canadian friends are a hearty crew! We love that this mom was so ready for flip flops that she braved the snow puddles on their recent outing to the Zoo! What made the trip so easy and enjoyable? Well, the Bumprider and her four year old daughter!
The cool thing about the Joovy Bumprider is that is fits virtually any stroller on the market! Convert your single stroller to a tandem today. Your kid just might think you’re the coolest parent on the planet!
“Thank you for helping our baby enjoy outings safely after her liver transplant. Last night her stroller transformed into a horse drawn carriage ride at a ball. Normally it lets her do many everyday things as well like the library, church, store, and other fun outings.”
The ball was hosted by Music Connections, Kindermusik. Thank you again for giving our daughter some freedom along with her safety. She was transplanted in June, thanks to the love of a stranger. We were in Cincinnati where the Cocoon can often be seen roaming the halls of the Children’s Hospital and Ronald McDonald house.
