Welcome to the Simple Living Media Summer Block Party! We’ve got 20 giveaways across the entire network this week to give you plenty of chances to win!
So we’re starting off the Block Party on Simple Mom with a bang, thanks to Joovy. I’m happy to take a little break from my maternity leave in order to try out this fun Joovy Caboose Ultralight stroller with my newly expanded family. And already, it’s been a hoot toting my three (three!) kiddos around on one streamlined stroller.
I’ll admit I was a smidge hesitant at first to try out this stroller. After all, I’ve been perfectly content with our smaller stroller, and I just didn’t love the thought of lugging around a larger tandem stroller. But I’m happily surprised at how lightweight and compact this stroller is… for a tandem stroller, that is.
Sure, this Caboose Ultralight is not as tiny as my single ride stroller. But it’s pretty darn sweet how my two-week-old, two-and-a-half-year-old, and my five-year-old can all climb aboard and ride comfortably. It folds up nicely and fits in our trunk, no problem, and it’s a breeze to snap the stroller open. I can even do it one-handed!
My newborn’s Graco Snugride carseat fits perfectly in the front with the included attachment to accommodate little ones. Even though this is officially a double stroller, my toddler or preschooler can sit nicely on the backseat, and sometimes they can even snugly squish in together! It’s a good thing they love each other. But if they’re not feeling the love, my oldest simply stands on the back while my son enjoys the seat.
In other words, right now, this stroller fits our family perfectly.
I also love the “parent organizer,” a removable neoprene strap that stretches across the handles that houses drinks, cell phones, a wallet, and the like. It’s super narrow, so that when it’s not in use, it hardly takes up any room.
Finally, my six-foot-two hubby loves that the handles are long enough for him to push the stroller without tripping up. His wife, a foot shorter, doesn’t notice the difference, but appreciates that our height differences doesn’t affect this stroller’s usefulness.
It’s a bit on the pricier side for a stroller, but I always value quality. To me, it’s worth it to invest in one good stroller that will stand the test of time than to save a few dollars and end up buying strollers again and again. Thumbs up on this stroller — it’s worth the money.
One Simple Mom reader will win a Joovy 2010 Ultralight Caboose Tandem Stroller!
