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 have tried them all also and now our baby is rolling on 18 months and is moving constantly! I'm willing to take your word for it and would like to give it a whirl. ;-)

I have been a subscribers for a few months now and have loved all the savings I have had because of deal seeking moms. Thanks so much. I have had a double stroller before, but have recently had a baby and this one sounds perfect for older kids who get tired walking alot.

I'm always watching my baby nephew and it would be nice to have my son and him in one stroller than having my toddler son run laps around us.

4 Melissa June 17, 2010 at 2:48 pm

I anticipate needing one in the future! Hopefully the not too distant future.

5 Christina Main June 17, 2010 at 2:49 pm

I could use the double stroller because my nephews go shopping with us A LOT and so the room for my infant son and older nephews would be SPECTACULAR!

9 Natalie Kelly June 17, 2010 at 3:10 pm

We are now enjoying our second set of twins, oh would we love to stroll them around in this. :) The oldest set is 6 and wow, strollers have come a long way.

What a HUGE giveaway! Two weeks ago we pulled our double stroller out of the garage for a walk- it has mouse poop in it, and the cushion had holes chewed through them. Needless to say- I threw it away. So YES, I NEED a new one!

We have a double stroller but I hate it because I can't push it!! I would love to have one of these!!

20 Amber Kennert June 17, 2010 at 10:22 pm

I am in need for a double stroller. We have 2 girls.. one is 5 and the other is 2. The older one likes to walk sometimes but also wants to ride! This would be awesome to have!

21 Amber Kennert June 17, 2010 at 10:22 pm

I also follow you through email and facebook

22 Camille June 17, 2010 at 11:54 pm

We just found out today that we are having our second, woohoo! So, this would be wonderful since our first is 18 months and still enjoys the stroller. :)

23 Lanette June 18, 2010 at 12:22 am

I definitely have need for a double stroller with my 4-1/2 month old son and 2-1/2 year old daughter. This stroller would be great for us since my daughter often wants to get up and walk about while we are out, but doesn't want to walk the entire trip.

We only have one child in our household, but are very close with my brother and his wife and my sister and her husband, both of which have recently had babies this year. I think this would come in handy when we all get together to go places.

26 Andrea June 18, 2010 at 9:51 am

Hi! I am a brand new subscriber and cannot believe the quality items you give away. I am a new mother of a 6 month old and am planning on expanding our family within the next year. I would love the opportunity to also replace our not so outstanding stroller we currently have. Our current stroller does not turn very well and is quite frustrating trying to do a wheelie on the back wheels to get it to turn in crowded areas. Also looking forward to being able to tote my godson around along with my son. Love the newsletter!

27 Traci June 18, 2010 at 11:17 am

planning on having a second one next year! bring 'em on!

I definitely foresee needing a double stroller - and a lightweight one with storage AND in cool colors would be AWESOME!!!

31 Diane June 18, 2010 at 12:47 pm

With our tenth child on the way we have gone through a lot of strollers! Haven't had a double one for awhile and would love to have one!

32 Elisabeth June 18, 2010 at 1:04 pm

I'm hoping to need a double stoller!! We've been doing the whole fertility thing and and sending up prayers. If I win and don't get my sister would love this stroller!!

I need this stroller tomorrow. I have an awesome side by side double, but there is no way we can fly with it. I need a more compact way to carry my one year old and my almost 3 year old.

37 KAHLE MADERA June 18, 2010 at 9:27 pm

I will be needing a double stroller in September! I already have a 20 month old daughter & expecting a boy! Have already researched this stroller & love it. Unfortunately, it's a little out of my price range! Have only heard great things about it though!

38 Anita June 19, 2010 at 9:26 am

I have five grandsons ranging in ages two to six, I could use this stroller

I would love to win the stroller! We love to help our friends and family with their children! With ages ranging from 6 months to 8 this would be a slick ticket!!

46 Erika W. June 20, 2010 at 5:28 pm

I am very thankful for the double stroller that I used with my first son because it allowed me to be mobile with him. I put him in the front and his ventilator in the back. He was able to get out of his room and visit places like the zoo and the park. Using that same stroller now for my other children hasn't been so enjoyable. It is heavy and awkward and I would rather leave it at home. A light weight stroller would be wonderful!

47 shannon deitz June 20, 2010 at 5:29 pm

I use a double stroller a lot for walks, parks and shopping!
