DALLAS, March 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Joovy announces new features and upgrades for its popular Caboose stand-on tandem stroller. Compact and maneuverable, the Caboose is the practical solution for strolling with children of different ages. The new Caboose Graphite has a lean graphite-colored frame, 4-wheel suspension and more.
The original stand-on tandem was designed in 1992 by grandfather Bert Fairclough who passed away on January 29, 2016. His older grandson felt too old to ride in a stroller but too young to walk very far. Bert was inspired and created a stroller with a stand-on platform from which Mark could easily jump on and off.
Today, parents can eliminate struggles with their own children who don't want to ride in a stroller. Kids love the built-in stand-on platform on the Caboose and there is no need to attach accessory stroller boards that can become awkward to manage. The unique design of the Caboose makes it more stable when a child stands on the platform. Older siblings feel independent when they can choose to sit or stand, face forward or backward, or walk.
The Caboose is favored by parents for theme parks and travel as it provides practical mobility with two kids and is easy to navigate through crowds and tight spaces. Parents can create a travel system with the included universal car seat adapter to carry their toddler and newborn at the same time. The Caboose is easy to fold, put in the trunk and folds more compactly that most double strollers.
The updated Caboose includes a 3-position reclining front seat, linked parking brake, larger canopy and 4-wheel suspension. The base weight of this tandem is 25.4 lbs and adding the canopy and tray adds 2.2 lbs.
For strolling with children less than 2.5 years old, the Caboose Rear Seat accessory offers a full-size, forward-facing, reclining seat that is easy to install and remove when not in use. Additionally, the Caboose Rear Seat does not need to be removed when folding the Caboose.
MSRP Caboose Graphite $149.99, Caboose Rear Seat $69.99
