"Sturdy and does the job…"
Although this wouldn't have worked for us when my 1 year old was a little baby, now she's a bit older and my three year old is at the stage where he can walk a reasonable distance but still gets tired and asks to go in the pushchair a fair bit, the Joovy Caboose has proved ideal.
I LOVE the way it folds so easily, and with the hood removed (easily done by pressing in a small clip either side) it is remarkably compact to store or fit in a car boot.
The option to sit or stand has been great for my son, who likes both and is fascinated by the sliding seat! I like the sliding seat as it allows easy access to the incredibly roomy shopping basket, meaning I can fit the kids changing bag and a fair bit of shopping in with no problem.
The handle is fairly high and not adjustable, the front seat is fairly basic and not countoured for comfort like many other pushchairs, its a bit difficult to get up curbs with both children in it (but then I've been spoilt by our incredibly manouvreable single pushchair...) and it doesn't come with a raincover which is a bit of a pain; but these niggles are minor and for the price, ease of use and sturdiness of the pushchair, are not really worth complaining about.
All in all, if you've got an older baby and toddler / preschooler, definitely worth considering.Read moreLess
"Our children are 18 months apart, and when our son…"
Our children are 18 months apart, and when our son was tiny it was easy - we used our existing buggy and a sling. However, he got too big for that and my daughter wasn't big enough yet to walk everywhere so a double buggy was clearly needed. I did a lot of research and read a lot of reviews. The things that put me off were either a huge footprint (length or widthways) or a 'double-decker' arrangement where one child is basically underneath the other. These latter types also seemed to be grown out of pretty fast, not to mention being very expensive.
Then I stumbled across the Joovy Caboose. You can only buy the Ultralight version in this country, from Mothercare, but I hate Mothercare so I emailed Joovy in America to ask if they shipped direct. I got my Joovy caboose forRead moreLess
