Joovy Caboose Review and Caboose Ultralight Giveaway! CLOSED

Congrats #414, Shannon!



My family and I love taking walks when it's nice out. It's great exercise and it gets the kids out from in front of the video games and gets them moving! If you have little one's, the number one thing you need is a good stroller. I have tried so many strollers, both single and double and have always had trouble finding one that I really liked. They were all either too bulky, too heavy or too awkward to maneuver!  I was finding it especially difficult to find one to suit our current needs, as we have a  baby as well as a preschooler who still gets tired when we go for long walks but is really too big to ride in a traditional stroller. Our Day 3 Product for Welcome Home Baby in honor of Mom's with new babies and babies on the way is the Joovy Caboose!!



We had the opportunity to review the Joovy Caboose and my husband and I were both definitely impressed with this stroller!  First of all, it was super easy to assemble. I pulled out the directions and had the entire stroller put together within 15 minutes, without the help of my husband who I would normally have to call on to help me!  As I was pulling things out of the box, I was also ecstatic that there was a Removable Child Tray and a Universal Car Seat Adapter INCLUDED!  Most of the time these type of extras must be purchased separately so I was super excited that they were included with the stroller because they were both things I wanted to use!

We tried the Joovy Caboose out every way possible!  First, we snapped the Car Seat Adapter on which literally took seconds to do!  Within a minute we had the baby all ready to roll!  I loved how easy it was to put him in it but even better, I had no doubt that he was in safely and securely so I didn't have to worry about him as we were walking. I also loved how well the canopy covered him so I didn't have to worry about the sun beating down on him or in his eyes!





Next we took the Universal Car Seat Adapter off and snapped on the Removable Child Tray. Once again, this took just seconds to do and within minutes we had baby Aiden strapped in front with our older son Joshua strapped in the back.  They had such a blast as we walked around our neighborhood!  I didn't have any problems pushing the stroller or making turns.  The wheels rolled along great and I couldn't even tell that I was pushing two kids!







As an alternative, the older child can stand on the back of the stroller rather than sit, so when Josh got bored of sitting, he stood up. He said it was like riding on the back of the cart at the grocery which he isn't allowed to do so that was definitely a plus for him! 



When we finished our walk, the stroller folded right up and was easy to store and didn't take up a lot of room.  When we were ready to get it out the next time, it was simple to open back up to use which I find  very important because I don't like to waste a lot of time getting things ready to go! 

Overall, I love the concept of this stroller and would without any hesitation say it is the best stroller that I have had since starting to have children 8 years ago!  I would have loved to had it when my older 2 were babies.  We would DEFINITELY say you would be CRAZY not to have one of these great Joovy strollers!


GIVEAWAY

I am so excited that one of you are going to win the NEW 2010  Joovy Caboose Ultralight. This stroller has the same great features as original Caboose but weighs 10 pounds lighter!  The front part now has 3 reclining positions, a larger storage basket, 4-wheel suspension and a parent organizer!  Suggested retail value is $269.


Please note, this contest is different than most of our Giveaways.  There is no end-date for this giveaway. The giveaway will end and a winner will be chosen at random when Joovy hits 500 "likes" on their Facebook page!  That means, the faster you spread the word to get people to "Like" Joovy on Facebook, the faster this contest will end!!!  So get out there and suggest it to all of your friends on Facebook so we can pick a winner already! 

I will still allow a couple extra entries just for fun :) You must be a follower of this blog to enter.
