From maybe viewing the stroller, and hearing about it you might not think it’s a double stroller. I thought it was a single stroller until I read about it.
Of course, if you searched for the stroller by name, then you already know t’s a double stroller. It’s unique in its design and the stroller offer compatibility, and many features.
The Joovy Caboose Ultralight Graphite Stroller offers families all over the world features, quality fabrics and materials, and it will last longer than many.
I will go into details pointing the pros and cons. The Caboose Ultralight Stroller is only suitable for 2 children of different age, so no twins

A good tandem stroller to buy if you are planning on having more than one kid. Suitable from 3 months old your children can use the seats.
It’s suitable from birth with a car seat, I will talk more about that below. You can also have the rear-facing reclining seat that Joovy offers for your other toddler.
This is if you want a rear-facing seat. Are there many brands that offer stroller where you can stand and sit? Not really from all of the research I have done.
The frame or chassis offers your toddler a place to seat and stand. No need for a stroller board. Your child can grow with the stroller.
The Joovy stroller is suitable for up to 40kg for both toddlers. Which means when they are around 4 years old. Around that time many toddlers don’t need a stroller.
Caboose Ultralight is also being praised for being an extremely lightweight double stroller. Lighter than many single strollers out there.
It also offers a 3-point harness system that straps your children’s shoulder, chest and legs/buttocks. Light and a big canopy to offer protection from the sun.
A parent organiser is included to make it easier for parents and my favourite accessory about the stroller is the universal adapters.
A child tray is also included. Good to have for your baby’s or toddlers afternoon snacks. The tray can be removed to provide more space for your toddler to relax and be free.
Suitable for many car seats from many brands. You can use many car seats. Sometimes car seats from the same brand are not always the best.
So, if you have the option to choose from a different is better. Swivel wheels to offer a smooth ride for your little one. Good feature when leaving in the city.
The brakes are rear-facing and easy to access. No need to struggle when you are in a rush, and it also helps with emergencies.
A medium-sized basket underneath for all of the groceries. of course, you have the option to place other things there like your shopping bags.
After a long day just fold the stroller with ease, and it’s compact when folded. Meaning it’s easy to store in tiny spaces in your boot or house.
The stroller comes in many colours, and it can be used for one baby also. When you have another one buy any Joovy caboose seat and you are good to go.
As you read above the Joovy Caboose Ultralight Stroller comes with adapters for the car seat. It fits car seats from major brands.
I have done reviews on some of the best car seat out there, and many of these are suitable with the Caboose Ultralight Stroller. View the Mesa Infant Car Seat, Maxi-Cosi Car seats, Baby trend EZ infant car seat and Evenflo Litemax Infant Car Seat.
If you don’t want these, you can look up another compatibility, to choose the car seat of your liking. The Caboose Ultralight matches many brands.
This makes the stroller favoured by many parents. You can choose any of the top brands you like, these are names I am sure you have heard even if you are a first-time mum.
Like I mentioned above you have the rear seat available to have a double stroller. The rear seat with another already installed on the stroller turns it into a tandem pushchair.
You can choose a car seat for newborns or smaller children.
- The stroller can be considered expensive without its accessories. It’s just a single stroller.
- It’s not compatible with a carrycot/bassinet. Many parents prefer this over car seats because they feel they offer more protection and comfort for the first 2 months or so. Which was true in my case.
- No adjustable handlebar.
- 3 point harness system is not better. A 5 Point Harness system is the best option for babies and toddler.
- The canopy/hood does not have a sunshade and UPF50+ protection. Super helpful during summer, especially for babies.
- Some parents might not like the design of the stroller. The canopy or hood is often round, but this one has a squared design.
- The seat is suitable from 3 months upwards, which means your newborn have to use the car seat, and it must be a car seat that’s best suited for them. Some car seats are not compatible with tiny babies. Search it up.
- The stroller itself is forward faced, the car seat is rear-facing.
Joovy Caboose Ultralight Graphite Stroller vs Other Strollers.
What other tandem strollers are similar to this one? Is it a top-rated stroller compared to many brands or not? For this post, I will compare the Caboose Ultralight Stroller with the Hauck Duett 2, and Graco Stadium Duo.
Caboose Ultralight Graphite Stroller vs Graco Stadium Duo.
These two strollers do not look similar and are quite opposites, but both are tandem strollers with many features in similar and it’s suitable for your baby and toddler. These similarities are:
- Both are forward-facing.
- Suitable for car seats.
- Child tray.
- Lockable double front swivel wheels
- Big hood.
- Both are not compatible with a carrycot/bassinet.
The Graco is compatible with two car seats, a child tray on each seat and folds with one hand. The stroller does have cons when compared to this one such as:
It’s heavy, one colour only and does not have a parent organiser, one of the seats are suitable from 6 months upwards and the maximum weight is 15kg.
When compared to the Caboose Ultralight Stroller it offers more features such as the stand and the stroller also offers a rear-facing option. Overall the Caboose is better than the other one, although it’s not the choice for twins.
If you are having twins the Graco double stroller is best suitable for you.
Caboose Ultralight Graphite Stroller vs Hauck Duett 2.
These don’t also look similar, much less than the other two. Both are tandem strollers with these similarities:
- Suitable from birth.
- Travel System ready.
- Swivel wheels.
- Rear faces brakes.
- Middle-sized basket.
- Lightweight chassis or frame.
- Rear-facing seats.
These are the only features they are similar to. The differences are that the Hauck Duett 2, has a convertible and reversible seat, 5 point harness system, suitable for carrycot/bassinet, lockable front wheels, ventilated system, adjustable handle, etc.
There are more features, click the link to see. By just stating these you get the idea that the Hauck has more things to offer. The only main feature it does not offer is the stand and variety of colours.
I will choose the Hauck Duett 2, but others might differ in their choices. The Hauck is more expensive, so that too can change things.
A Different Double for the Family.
The Joovy Caboose Ultralight Stroller is truly different from your typical strollers. Not all strollers are designed the same, but others just stick out more.
Like the egg stroller, this one has its own uniqueness. It’s also a stroller your small child will love to ride on with the stand available.
It might even be for three children depending on your children’s weight. Your bigger child can use the standing from time to time. To just be part of the stroll and journey.
Of course, follow the advice above to not damage the stroller. This baby carriage is what I call simple, yet beneficial. Last but not list the variety of colours available.
It only offers two main colours on the stroller, black with red, grey, yellow, etc. The choice is yours really.
What are your thoughts after reading the review? Do you think this the one for your family?
