Superior to the Joovy Caboose Ultralight at a smaller pricetag!,April 29, 2010
I spent a few weeks researching tandem strollers and finally settled on the Joovy Caboose Ultralight. I was very disappointed when it arrived. I used it for a couple of weeks before finally selling it on craigslist, taking a loss, because there are a couple of huge design flaws that I couldn’t live with. I then bought the Baby Trend Sit n Stand LX and love it. First of all, it is about $100 cheaper than the Joovy, and, in this case at least, more expensive certainly does not mean better.
I have a 4-year-old and a 2-month-old. I knew that my 4-year-old would want to walk on outings but hop on a stroller when she got tired. I also knew that I’d be using the infant carseat with the stroller for at least four more months with my infant son.
There are three things about the Joovy that I preferred to the Sit n Stand (minor things that are not deal breakers by any means):
1. The Joovy Caboose Ultralight is lighter (by about four pounds), so it is slightly easier to turn and maneuver than the Sit n Stand; its wheels also seem to roll a little more smoothly. However, the maneuverability comes at the sacrifice of function (more about this later).
2. The Joovy neoprene parent organized has a ton of space for keys, wallet, and phone and is very functional. The Sit n Stand parent organizer is a hard shell; it has room for two smaller water bottles, which is great, but neither my keys nor my BlackBerry will fit in the middle closed compartment, thus rendering it nearly useless – it’s just too small to be functional.
3. The oversized canopy on the Joovy covers both kids, which is nice on a very hot and sunny day or in case you get caught in a rainstorm. However, the canopy is also bulky and a little cumbersome; when you don’t need it fully open, it gets in the way.
That being said, there are many things I prefer about the Sit n Stand:
1. The Sit n Stand is a little lower to the ground and thus feels more stable when moving.
2. The Sit n Stand has a carseat attachment that you can snap the infant carrier into. The Joovy Caboose attachment is really a tray that the infant carrier sits ON TOP OF; it does NOT snap in, something Joovy obviously does not advertise because it’s very cumbersome and annoying. To secure the infant carrier on the Joovy, you have to strap it in with an ugly red strap; even with the strap, the infant carrier sits awkwardly on top of the tray and doesn’t feel like it’s secure. In the instruction booklet, Joovy actually advises that parents check the carrier every few minutes to make sure the strap that holds it attached to the stroller isn’t loose. The Sit n Stand attachment is awesome – the carrier snaps right in and is tight and secure in the front seat of the stroller.
3. The Joovy basket is very small and hard to get into. I could barely get my purse in there, much less a diaper bag. The Sit n Stand basket is larger and has snaps on the side that you can open, thus making the basket easily accessible and usable.
4. The Sit n Stand can be folded with one hand; the Joovy cannot.
5. The Sit n Stand actually folds smaller than the Joovy. It’s a bit thicker when folded but significantly shorter, so it will fit in all trunks. The Joovy is VERY tall when folded and wouldn’t fit in the trunk of my friend’s Honda.
6. The front seat on the Joovy is very shallow, only 8 inches. The depth of the Sit n Stand front seat is about 10 ½ inches, making it much more functional for older kids. I could see my son, who’s average size, outgrowing the Joovy seat by the time he’s 18-months-old. He’ll be able to use the Sit n Stand much longer.
7. The Sit n Stand has a removable kid tray that easily snaps off with one hand. Once the younger child is older and bigger, it’s easy to remove him/her from the stroller without lifting him/her over the top of the tray. The Joovy tray is very difficult to remove (I actually couldn’t do it; my husband had to do it for me).
8. However, the most obnoxious thing about the Joovy, and the main reason I traded it for the Sit n Stand, is that the back toddler bench seat is very small and moves/slides all the time, which is annoying and distracting for the kid AND the parent. Also, when the front seat is reclined (necessary to hold the infant carrier and for a younger child or a child who still naps during the day), it reclines halfway INTO the back bench seat, taking up about half the room of an already small seat. The older child then either has to stand (not great on long trips) or sit hunched forward with his/her feet awkwardly curled behind. This is a pretty big design flaw that I could not overlook. It makes the back seat essentially useless unless the front seat is not reclined. The Sit n Stand back bench seat is slightly larger, and the front seat, even when reclined, does not get in the way of the bench seat. The older child can thus sit comfortably upright even with the front seat inclined. The standing platform on the Sit n Stand is also larger and has a strap that you can buckle behind the child that the child can use for back support; the Joovy doesn’t have this.
Considering the above, the Sit n Stand LX is the hands-down winner. For nearly half the price, you get a much better, more functional stroller. Had I “test driven” both, I never would have bought the Joovy Caboose Ultralight. I think the Joovy looks kind of funky and trendy, so people fall for it, but it’s a poorly thought-out stroller that is terribly overhyped. If you can, try both at a store before buying.
