General description

The new Caboose Graphite is a must-have for parents strolling with kids of different ages because it offers double stroller features in a compact size. With a new lean profile and upgraded features, the Caboose continues to empower older siblings. Toddlers get a increase of independence and feel like big kids when they can decide to sit or stand, face forward or rearward, while riding on this tandem stroller. No have to attach another riding board as the Caboose has a fitted stand-on platform for kids to stand and ride or they can sit on the rear bench seat (parents do not have to lift their toddlers in or out of the stroller either). Parents expecting their second child love that they can create a travel system to carry their toddler and newborn. The Caboose Graphite comes with a common car seat adapter that has baby facing towards you and in complete view while strolling. Having both kids close may be a lifesaver to help parents keep tabs on both kids. If your kids are inside 2 years of each other, you may think about the optional Caboose Rear Seat, which changes the rear bench seat into a front-facing, full-size, reclining seat. This accessory is sold individually and it folds up with the stroller for convenience. It is also easy to install or uninstall. The new Caboose Graphite will include the following upgrades from the last variant: A graphite-colored steel frame, a new 3-position front seat, a bigger canopy with an expanded visor, linked parking brake and 4-wheel suspension. Also, the Caboose comes with a tray and common car seat adapter that fits most big brands. Each seat has a capacity of 45 lbs.


Recent reviews of Joovy Caboose Graphite Stand On Tandem Stroller, Black:

This is a great little stroller. It is not perfect, however considering the price, I am tempted to give it 5 stars. Note: I bought and paid full price for this stroller – no savings for any reviews – so they are my observations from an over-researcher who was shopping around for strollers for a while now and decided to pull pull the trigger on the Joovy Caboose Graphite. (Not that free reviews are any less honest, however I may have a different perspective, since I chose this stroller, as opposed to it picking me. ) Below are my in depth thoughts. Let us end on a high note and start with The Cons:1. No fitted parent console/organizer tray. 2. The handlebar is straight across, then slopes straight down. This has TWO drawbacks. 1st, it makes it hard for attaching any kind of 3rd-party, after-market parent organizer. (I bought one akin to the Skip-Hop Neoprene and it sags a little, as the loops must be pushed inward – otherwise they fall off the edges and slide down the bar. It is not ideal. Clearly, the Joovy organizer is made for this, however I had favored the features of some of the other organizers. Oh well, I may have to just get their organizer after alll. )3. The second disadvantage of the straight-down handlebar is that, from a physics standpoint, I feel like some of my push-effort is directed down so wasted, making it so I have to push a little harder to move this thing in a forward motion. (Now, some mechanical engineer can correct me if I am wrong, however that is how I see it. ) Now, I’ll say that this stroller is not hard to push, so this is not a big complaint.



I am the mother of nine and I bought this stroller to use with a Peg Perego baby carrier, as it was one of the few strollers promising compatibility. Really, it should be well-matched with any baby carrier. It simply has an extension bar that fits on in place of the snack tray. This bar cradles the carrier in the seat, and there’s a security strap for extra safety. There are only three things I do not like about this Joovy. 1st, the seat is supposed to be completely reclined when using the car seat attachment, which totally blocks access to the rear sit-and-stand area, which I was anxious for my toddler to able to use. Second, the basket is too small for any sort of diaper bag or tote, regardless how simple. And 3rd, with the carrier attachment in place, it’s quite long when folded. But I drive a 12 passenger van, so space isn’t an issue, and if it was, the carrier holder may be removed easily; I am used to carrying my tote around anyway; and the baby carrier is just as secure with the seat only partly reclined, although the safety strap isn’t long enough to snap around the seat. This is just a shopping stroller for me, although, and only used on level ground. And the straps may be replaced with longer ones for a couple of bucks. Otherwise, the carrier feels secure, it is easy to push and maneuvers amazingly well with both the baby and the toddler riding, and it is easy to open and close. It is a wee bit longer than I am used to, however not unmanageably so. I also like that it is not much wider than an umbrella stroller. I thought about adding the second seat for the two-year-old, however I think it could be too crowded. But, if Joovy wants to send me a seat for review reasons, I would not complain. Maybe that could fix the problem of the completely reclined seat. But maybe not, which is why I did not purchase one. All in all, it is a nice stroller for taking shopping, particularly if you are wanting adjustments for two.



Bought this when I was expecting my second. I have a tall 3yo (42 inches) who does not really fit in conventional stroller seats anymore and loves to walk, however I wanted something where he could stand or sit down to ride along if he wanted. We also wanted the stroller to be able to fit an baby seat while having room for the toddler to ride, still be compact enough to fit in the trunk of a compact car. Now that we have had the baby and have used the stroller for 5 months, here are my honest thoughts. Pros:- Compact SizeWhen folded, we have managed to fit this in the trunk of a Toyota Corolla and a Pontiac G6 with lots of room to spare. Just make sure to take off the baby seat adapter before storing. – Smooth rideThis stroller steers easily with one hand and turns on a dime, laden with 2 kids and shopping bags. – Handlebars are nice and highIf you’re tall like me (6’0) you’ll love that you will not have to suspicion over to push this stroller. That was my major complaint about my single stroller. – Quality constructionSteel framing means that this is a tough stroller. It is not going to break on you. I have accidentally dropped it on the concrete floor of our garage some number of times and had no issues. -baby seat adapter includedI was thrilled to learn I did not have to buy anything extra to be able to use it with my Graco Snugride seat. – Buckles for both kidsCouldn’t find any reviews or questions confirming if or not the back jump seat has a buckle – it does. it is a 3 point harness that goes between the legs and around the waist.
