Win-It Wednesday: Joovy Caboose Ultralight!

by Tara Kuczykowski on June 16, 2010 · 1,339 comments

Join me every week for Win-It Wednesday. I’ll be posting 24-hour giveaways at 8 a.m., 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. ET to give you plenty of chances to win!

My husband would be the first to tell you that the last thing we need is another stroller. I've amassed quite the collection through five kids while trying to find that perfect stroller for our family. For a long time our double-jogging stroller was the stroller of the moment, but now that the kids are a little older (and heavier), it's become a little unwieldy to maneuver.

He rolled his eyes when the Joovy Caboose Ultralight box arrived, but he was willing to give it a try, which we did on a recent trip to the Columbus Zoo. I really wish we'd found this stroller ages ago, because it's very versatile for a growing family. Unlike our double-jogging stroller, it will accommodate an older child and a baby carrier. Plus as your children get older, it allows for one child to sit and another to either sit or stand in the back. This is perfect for my two-year-old who is constantly changing his mind, but it also appeals to my older girls.

Parents will also appreciate the neoprene parent organizer, something my jogging stroller was sadly lacking in. The large storage basket holds all of your gear, with room for additional packages that you may pick up on your outings.

Other features:

  • 3-position front seat recline
  • 4-wheel suspension/linked rear brake
  • Removable tray
  • Oversized canopy
  • Folds compactly

I'd encourage even first-time parents to give the Joovy Caboose Ultralight a good look. You may not have a need for a double stroller at the moment, but you'll definitely get your money's worth out of this over the years!

I don't have a need for it, but I would love to be able to donate it to a needy mother at the domestic violence shelter near me.

2 J Nydegger June 20, 2010 at 8:17 pm

I would love the chance to win this stroller. We aren't desperate for a stroller for two quite yet, but I know those days will come! It looks fantastic.

3 Leslie June 20, 2010 at 9:39 pm

I have an almost two year old and a four year old! We bought a used joovy caboose but I've had my eye on the ultralight since my son was born!

My daughter recently returned home from the army, her and her hubby are expecting their first baby in December! Could use this stroller for her growing family. Hope she wins!

6 michelle davis June 20, 2010 at 9:51 pm

i subscribed 2!

7 Rebecca Scott June 20, 2010 at 9:52 pm

I don't have a need for it yet, but I have a one year old and we're hoping for another blessing = )

8 Karen June 20, 2010 at 10:24 pm

I have a 4 year old and a 1 year old but since my son likes to walk, we've been able to get away with one stroller. The kids and I may be join my husband on a business trip this summer so this stroller would definately be a lifesaver if I'm sightseeing alone with the kids.

9 June 20, 2010 at 10:26 pm

i would love to win this stroller simply because it looks soooo cute ,,, and i never won anything :-(

10 Emily June 20, 2010 at 10:45 pm

I totally relate to your story. I have a Graco Duo Glider (the newest one) which my sister-in-law is using, and a double jogging stroller. My kids are still young just like yours and still like to ride but they are too heavy to for our strollers. And my husband says "NO MORE STROLLERS!" I always want to read/get feedback before going out and buying one. I've been interested in the Joovy for a little while. But glad to know that you have tested it and it works for you. We are planning on having our 3rd child within the year and this stroller would meet my needs just as it has met yours. Thanks for sharing and giving it "2 thumbs up"!

11 jenny June 20, 2010 at 10:55 pm

This stroller looks awesome. I have a 1 year old and hope to have another blessing soon.

My 3rd child just turned 2 months old, and he joins 2 sisters - ages 2 and 5. If I'm going to get out and get walking, I NEED a double stroller! :)

20 Heather June 21, 2010 at 12:37 am

I could use a nice double stroller since I have a 10 month old, a 2 1/2 year old and a 4 year old. The jogger we have is just big and bulky.

I love this stroller and would love to have it in our house. I have a 17 month old and often a friend or two on outings.

26 Rebecca June 21, 2010 at 8:44 am

I definitely need a double stroller! I have identical twin boys. When they were newborns, our strller worked well... but not that they are little bigger, the stroller we have is bulky, and EXTREMELY heavy!

I link to your website through my blog list. This would be great for when we have our second! :)

33 Gayle June 21, 2010 at 6:55 pm

That would be so nice for our upcomming family! That would make it so much easier when the older child gets tired of walking!

34 Leah June 21, 2010 at 8:21 pm

I've joined the Joovy community on Facebook. Love it!

35 chantel June 22, 2010 at 10:57 am
