Description


This premium version of Joovy’s popular Caboose sit n’ stand stroller adds features and flexibility to a tandem that already scores high marks with parents. The Caboose S holds more weight and offers more flexibility than the Caboose or Caboose Ultralight, but also comes with the tradeoffs of added weight, size and cost.

In its basic mode as a sit n’ stand, your younger child rides in the front seat or in a car seat using snap-in adapters. Your older child rides in the back, sitting facing backward or standing. The rear bench slides back to create a seat with a three-point harness, or forward to access the stand-on board. (It’s worth noting that this system does require cooperation from your child and makes it harder to contain super wiggly little ones). Unlike stroller board attachments, the integrated standing platform is extremely stable and leaves plenty of room for the person doing the pushing.

Beyond this basic setup, the Caboose S offers added flexibility in terms of where your kids ride. On this stroller, you can use your infant seat in either the front or rear position (with the Caboose and Caboose Ultralight, it can only go in the front). This allows you to have your newborn ride near you in the back while your older child sits in the front. Joovy also sells a bassinet attachment for the front position—it’s the first sit n stand with a bassinet—or you can purchase a second seat for the back so both children can ride in comfy reclining seats (the Joovy Caboose S Too comes with a second seat in the box). Looking to create your own travel system? The Caboose S is compatible with several brands of infant car seats (adapters sold separately). See below for a complete list of compatible infant car seats.

Like the other Caboose strollers, this is a practical workhorse that’s built tough. The huge cargo basket holds lots of gear but, unlike other Caboose models, you can access it without moving your kid from the bench, thanks to a zippered opening. The stroller comes with a neoprene handlebar organizer and a child tray that flips up instead of out, and a huge SPF 50+ sun canopy that covers both children (it’s larger than the canopy on the other models).

The Caboose S has a one-handed, self-standing fold and the front seat cover is machine washable. The ride is smooth thanks to sealed-bearing wheels, four-wheel suspension and big rubber tires (larger than the Caboose or Caboose Ultralight), and the one-step linked brakes are easy to operate. The Caboose S can navigate varied terrain, and its relatively compact size will get you through grocery store aisles, doorways and crowded areas.

The Caboose S holds up to 55 pounds per seat for a total of 110 pounds, which means you can use it for quite some time. The weight limit for the cargo basket alone is 25 pounds. The seats are also larger than the other Caboose models—the back of the seat is higher, which is great for taller kids, and the bench and platform are wider, making for a more comfortable ride for all. Extra space in this stroller means the child riding in the back isn’t as cramped. Because the stroller is larger all around compared to the Caboose or Caboose Ultralight, it is slightly less nimble.

The limitations? When you use the second seat attachment, your child’s feet rest in the basket, so you lose cargo space. And while the Caboose S is still light in weight for a tandem stroller, at 30.5 pounds it’s a good seven pounds heavier than the Ultralight; when making your choice, be sure to factor in how much you will need to be carrying and lifting the stroller as opposed to pushing.

Infant Car Seat Compatibility
