Joovy Caboose Too Ultralight Stroller, Black
 

check-price-on-amazonThe Caboose Too Ultra light is like having 2 strollers in one. If your children are young and close in age, you can take full advantage of the 2 full-size reclining seats. The Too seat bridges the gap when children are too young to ride or stand on the back. As your children grow, the Caboose Too Ultra light adapts, allowing your older child to ride on the rear bench seat and standing platform. This becomes more and more important as the older child develops their sense of independence.

Q:Could someone post a picture of it folded up? Is there any way to put the infant seat in the rear seat or is it clipping to the tray in front?

A:

Well… TECHNICALLY, you shouldn’t put the infant seat in the back. I have a Chicco KeyFit30 though, and my husband forgot to bring the infant adapter to the zoo recently. It actually fit quite nicely (sideways) in the rear while my toddler rode up front. I wouldn’t recommend that as a regular configuration though, as there is no safety strap like there is in front.

Q:For those who purchased in 2014. The one star reviews said the front seat doesn’t sit upright (reclines too much). Has it been an issue for you?

A:

Although it doesn’t sit completely upright, it has not been an issue for me.

Q:Does the toddler sit comfortably when the infant car seat is in place? I noticed on the regular ultralight it would seem like the toddler is hunched?

A:

My 2.5 year old sits very comfortably with the car seat in place (she is petite though). She especially loves bring able to see (and poke…) the baby as they are facing each other. This has not been an issue at allfor us.

Q:Would my toddler fit comfortably in the Too seat while there’s a car seat installed in front?

A:

Not very well. Our grandson has to lean forward if the front seat is back at all. However, he’s generally more than happy to stand and the infant seat scenario didn’t last long. However, the infant seat didn’t fit the Joovy very well, either. That said, it is still a light, easy to transport, convenient stroller.

Q:does this fold with the too seat installed?

A:

Yes it does, that is how we use it.

Q:I have two kids: a 3.5 (34lbs) and a 1 (25lbs), will they both sit comfortable in it? If we go to Disney, very likely they’ll sleep in it at the same time, can both seat recline? about what degree? How easy to fold it? Can anyone post a picture with it…

A:

Hey there,

Both seats together can recline to up to 45 degrees together. I will email you pictures if you want. Please contact me at anthony@joovy.com

Thanks!,

Q:Does anybody know if the Graco SnugRide 30 Infant Car Seat -is compatible with this stroller?

A:

Not sure! Just looked at my sheet and it says Graco Snug Ride, Graco Snug Ride 32, and Graco Snug Ride 35!

Q:If you use the stroller with the infant carseat attachment won’t the carseat literally be in the face of the toddler sitting in the back?

A:

I think it depends on the size of the car seat and also the size of your older child. I find that we have plenty of room with ours (although our 2 year old is small), and my 2 year old loves being able to chat to the baby, although she has to lean forward a fair bit to do it. We have a fairly large car seat and we haven’t found this to be a problem.

Q:I have a 4 year-old and a 6 month old, is this a better fit than the cheaper model (joovy caboose ultralight)?

A:

I think it’s a bit sturdier. That said, my daughter is three and my son is a year, and the back seat of the stroller (where my daughter sits) is already a bit tight for her, and she’s on the tiny side. She most often chooses to stand and ride on the back of the stroller with the back seat out–just something to think about. Good luck!

Q:Anyone who has purchasd this on Amazon, does it come with the second seat? Or do I need to purchase it separately?

A:

The Joovy Caboose Too Ultralight means it comes with the Too seat (and parent console, which is pretty cool). Sometimes you can get the separate Too seat and “regular” stroller for cheaper (but not much), but the included console pushes it to making this bundle more economical.

Q:Has anyone used this stroller with the b-safe infant car seat? I wanted to check others experiences before I bought this online.

A:

We actually use a UNIVERSAL car seat attachment system which is INCLUDED with the purchase of a Caboose Stand On Tandem, Caboose Ultralight Stand On Tandem and Big Caboose.

Q:Which rain cover do you recommend for this stroller? There seems no rain cover for this one from Joovy. Thanks.

A:

Joovy caboose ultralight rain cover

Q:Has anyone tried to put this in the trunk of a Ford Focus?

A:

We have a Nissan Altima – I believe it’s similar size – and it fits with some (little) room to spare. The stroller “lives” in the trunk and we still are able to fit the groceries in. I think Buy Buy Baby carries these, and you might be able to try it out (leave them your ID and go try stuffing it in your car).

Q:Can the younger sibling sit in the back on the additional seat (not bench) or are they restricted to the front?

A:

Yes, for younger riders, you can place them in the back seat provided you’ve installed the backrest portion.

Q:Does it still have the bench when the backseat is removed?

A:

Yes. The back seat bottom slides over the bench; the Too seat is not a “true” seat without using the built-in bench.

Q:Could someone with a Chicco Keyfit 30 post a picture of them using the infant adapter with a toddler in the back? I don’t think I’m doing it right.

A:

Hey there!

We would love to help walk you through how to use the car seat adapter. Could you call Joovy’s customer care center?

Thanks!

Q:I have a 3 years old and a 15 months old. Is it possible for both seats to recline so both kids could nap at the same time?

A:

Hello,

I would say that is a great way to use it. You should experience no difficulty in this scenario. I absolutely love this stroller. It comes with everything you would possibly need and it is GREAT for vacations!!!

Thanks!

Q:If you install the second seat and pull the crotch strap from the bench seat through, is the crotch strap for the second seat just extra?

A:

The second seat doesn�t include a crotch strap. So the one you use is the one from the bench seat.
Instruction to install the second seat come with the user manual.
Hope it was helpful.

Q:I see that they sell an adapter for the chicco keyfit30 for the joovvarylight stroller. Do theyalso sell an adapter for the ultralight stroller?

A:

Adapter for carseat? The joovy caboose too comes with a piece you can attach so that your car seat fits into the stroller.

Q:Hello – can this fit a newborn in a car seat and a 18 month old (should be able to sit comfortable)?

A:

My 3 yo and new born in the car seat fit comfortably… I’ll post a pic…. She likes it because they face each other…. There’s not a ton of room but it’s not a huge cumbersome stroller either

Q:Can you have two car seats on this stroller as I am expecting twins and am looking for the right stroller for twins? thanks

A:

I doubt it. I’ve never used the adapter, but you do have to recline the front seat down. Which leaves no room for the back.

Q:Can someone please clarify if it is necessary to remove the sunshade and/or carseat adapter in order to fit the folded stroller into a sedan trunk?

A:

The sunshade no, but the car seat adapter yes

Q:1) Will it fit in a Honda Civic trunk? Has anyone put it in a Civic or similar sedan? 2) Does both the seats have canopy ?

A:

It fits into my civic with room to spare. Also, only the front seat has a canopy.

Q:Is this stroller the same model as the Joovy Caboose Ultralight, only it comes with the extra seat?

A:

Exactly the same 🙂

Q:How big are the wheels?

A:

Tire and wheel together measure 7.5 inches in diameter. The wheel diameter is a little more than 6 inches. It has been a great stroller as far as weight and easy storage in the car.

Q:Is this stroller compatible with Britax carrier?

A:

Hello,

This stroller comes with a UNIVERSAL car seat adapter. If you have any other specific questions, we’d love to help. Please contact Joovy’s Customer Care Center.

Thanks!

Q:Are the handles adjustable? My husband is a tall guy (6’3″) and wondering if it would get uncomfortable for him to push.

A:

No the handles are not adjustable

Q:Is this universal adapter compatible with the nina pipa car seat? it’s a fairly new brand which is why i don’t think it’s listed as compatible.

A:

Hello,

The car seat adapter provided is considered a universal car seat adapter. If you have any issues with compatibility once you receive your stroller please call our Customer Care Center at 877 456 5049.

Thanks!

Q:I have a 4.5 year old and a 2.5 year old. Will they both fit?

A:

Probably. Mine are 2 and 4. They fit fine. It’s a lot of weight so tight turns and inclines can be difficult, but overall it handles well.

Q:is there anything i can use instead of a car seat to put a 2 month old in this stroller?

A:

No. It is not supportive enough for an infant under 6 months.

check-price-on-amazon

Q:I read on another review somewhere that the infant seat can be attached to the front or rear seat. Is this true??

A:

As far as I know, an infant carrier can only be attached to the front.

Q:Do you have to remove the Too Seat to fold it up?

A:

No you do not, it folds up great with the too seat installed

Q:I have a just turned 3 year old, who weighs 34 pounds. Can he fit on the back Caboose seat? The manufacture keeps saying 2.5 years, very vague.

A:

We have an Autistic 48 lb 44″ 5 year old that fits in the back seat. He faces forward with the full seat installed. If we put him in the front seat it does affect the steering. We know he should be walking and he does most of the time, but we use this at the Disney parks and it gets hot being there. So sometimes it gives him a break from the heat and over stimulating enviroment. We also have a 3 year old and 2 year old and they just swap around all day. 1 walks and the other two ride.

Q:Can a buggy board be fitted on the back for a 3rd child?

A:

Hello,

Yes, that definitely works!

We actually have the Joovy “BumpRider” which does exactly that and is made for almost every stroller on the market. It works great for the Joovy Caboose strollers! If you have any other questions about the Caboose Too Ultralight, please call our Customer Care Center. We love answering questions!

Thanks!

Q:Is the Caboose Too the same as the regular Ultrlight, just with the second seat?

A:

Yes

Q:Can the younger sibling sit up straight? (a complete 90 degree angle)

A:

are you asking about how upright the seat can be positioned? The picture shows them in the upright position; not 90 degree, but there again most chair backs are not 90 either because that wouldn’t be comfortable.
The front seat reclines more (not flat though) and rated 3+ month, the back 6+ months as it reclines only half-way.

Q:will this fit in the trunk of a prius with the 2nd seat?

A:

Yeah I don’t see why not but you don’t want to keep the canopy connected.

Q:will this fit in the trunk of a prius with the 2nd seat?

A:

The second seat doesn’t make any difference in folded size. It might not fit with the canopy or car seat adapter on but I think it would fit in an empty trunk alright.

Q:What is the long horizontal strap behind the first seat for? (Behind the bar you use to recline the first seat)

A:

Hello,

I am not 100% sure what you are referring to. If I were to guess, it sounds like the waist harness for the bench seat. The bench seat harness is attached at the rear back of the front seat. If you have anymore questions or concerns, please call our customer service team at (877) 456 5049.

Thanks!

Q:Does the Ultralight too come with an extra SEAT or just universal adapter. We like our carrier and don’t want to buy added equiptment we don’t need.

A:

Comes with BOTH!

Q:Does the Peg Perego SIP 30/30 car seat fit this stroller?

A:

The stroller is compatible with most major brands (like Peg) so I would think so. Hopefully someone with that car seat will answer your question (I have Chicco). The car seats are held in place by an adjustable strap so I can’t imagine it not fitting. I do love this stroller…

Q:What is the difference between caboose too ultralight and the caboose ultralight? I’m looking for a stroller for a newborn and a tall 3.5 year old?

A:

The difference is you get the detachable second seat with the ultralight too. My three year old dtill loves to sit in the stroller with the backrest. If yours doesn’t go with the ultralight. You still have the sitting option with the ultralight, but they are facing backward and it is more of the sit and stand vs the actual stroller seat

Q:When folded, would this fit behind the 3rd row of a Yukon (not XL)? I have to use all 3 rows of my car and need a stroller to fit….

A:

Sorry if this is the fifth answer you get from me, but my phone is acting up and I’m not sure if my other responses got to you. I have a BMW X3 (small suv) and it fits either laying in its side or flat length wise in the trunk so it should fit in your Yukon. It may not leave a ton of extra storage space but should fit.

Q:Can you remove the back seat, so that it just has the stand bar and bench like the ultralight version?

A:

Yes..it’s just displayed that way. The back seat is not attached in the box.

Q:Anyone know what is the size of its original packaging (box) please?

A:

I do not, but they had this stroller at my local babies r us. You could check it out there

Q:I live in a town with a lot of cobblestone sidewalks. What are the tires constructed of, and how do they handle on bumpy terrain?

A:

Hey there,

I suppose it would depend on how severe the terrain is. This product has an internal suspension system in each wheel that helps with rough conditions.

Thanks!

Q:Why doesn’t the term “Stand-on” appear in the name of this stroller?

A:

It’s not just a “stand on” stroller. You can stand, sit and sit in an actual seat. That would be my guess, they would have to call it joovy caboose too sit in seat, sit on bench and stand on stroller to be accurate.

Q:Will this stroller work with a Chico infant car seat?

A:

Yes

Q:Is this stroller all black? Or black with dark gray as the picture looks?

A:

The black one is all black, inside and out. The frame is gray and the small reflective strips and lettering (joovy) are also gray.

Q:Does the canopy make a load noise when it’s moved back or forth?

A:

Ya kind of a snapping noise, but my babies sleep through it.

Q:On the Joovy website, they say the back seat rider must be 2.5 years old. Has anyone used this with a younger child?

A:

Perhaps they mean for the bench-only seat. My 5 month old used the Too seat regularly.

Q:Is there a way to access the storage bin with both children seated? Like a side zipper?

A:

No! There isn’t. The only thing wrong with this stroller.

Q:What is the difference between the Joovy Caboose Too Ultralight Stroller and the Joovy Caboose Ultralight Stroller?

A:

I think just the seat. The “too” has a detachable seat.

Q:when opened is it 41.5 inches long?

A:

Hi-
Love the Joovy Too Caboose!!!! It is 41.5 inches high when opened. I now have a 7 mo old and a 2.5 yr old and this stroller has been the best!
I haven’t yet taken the back seat off to make it into a sit and stand…maybe this summer. This is the easiest double stroller to setup and take down.
FYI: When the carseat holder attached it make the stroller longer than 37 inches, of course.

Q:The canopy does not cover the second child am i right? The rear seat has no canopy?

A:

I do not have this stroller however I am quiet interested in purchasing it. I went to Joovy’s web page and parents posted pictures of their children in the stroller and what sold me is that the canopy is big enough to cover both the child in the front as well as the child in the back.

Q:Can both seats fully recline at the same time?

A:

Yes, they both can recline, in fact they can recline independently.

Q:Does this stroller work with the Peg Perego Primo Viaggio 4-35 infant seat?

A:

Hey there,

I have not heard of anyone having issues with car seat compatibility since it is universal. If you have any issues call our customer care center at (877) 456 5049 and you will be promptly taken care of.

Thanks!

Q:is this compatible with chicco key fit 30?

A:

Yes. I have the chicco key fit 30 and it works perfectly. The carrier does not “snap” into tr stroller like with the travel system. Instead, it sits ontop of the adaptor and is strapped in place. It is very stable. I have never felt that it is unsecure.

Q:can i use the britax infant car seat with this stoller?

A:

I believe so. Basically the car seat attachment is a metal frame that the car seat sits in, with a tether strap to hold it in. I called Joovey directly and found their retail store, then took my car seat with me to try it out. It seems pretty universal.
