We had a chance to chat with Lusso Baby about their top pick for double strollers. Lots depends on what you need a double stroller for: you may have twins, in which case a side-by-side stroller is probably the best choice. You might want to accommodate a second child in the future, so a stroller that allows you to add on a second seat is a terrific option. However, an interesting option is the Joovy Caboose family of sit-and-stand strollers. If you’re looking for a double stroller that accommodate a baby and older active child, the Joovy Caboose Ultralight Stand-On stroller is a clever option.
What Lusso Baby says:
“A nice-looking double stroller that can be shared by a baby and busy older child ”
What VancouverMom.ca thinks:
The first time I saw this stroller, I was at the Toronto Zoo. My older child was about two years old and I was expecting my second in a few short months’ time. I thought – and still think – that this stroller would be excellent for those days when you have an older child who is active and loves to run around, but wants to take a break every once and a while. Almost a hybrid between a wagon and a stroller, the older child is able to sit or even stand on the rear platform if they get tired – excellent for when you’re at a fair or gallery where your child is wanting to hop on and off to view the sights.
The Joovy Caboose stroller can accommodate an infant using an infant car seat, but without it, children six months’ old to 45 lbs can use the stroller. The canopy is very large and can cover both children sitting. The storage basket is a medium size and could probably store the basic needs of two kids – but forget any additional shopping. The basket is also awkward to access with a child riding in the rear. The child riding in the back has mesh pockets to store any pebbles or any other bounty collected from the day ave collected during the day. The child in the front has a removable snack tray that’s perfect for Goldfish or any other snacks. The Joovy Caboose even has a neoprene storage pocket for you to keep smaller items like a wallet.
Once you get the hang of folding the Joovy Caboose, it’s really easy to break-down and you can open it with one hand – terrific if you have a baby on the hip and an older child that is eager to get going. When folded, the stroller also takes up a reasonable amount of space and can fit easily in most trunks.
The stroller doesn’t handle like a dream and neither seat looks like it would be incredibly comfortable for the child, but I suppose this should be considered almost like an umbrella stroller for two children – utilitarian but with a unique riding option.
Who should buy this stroller:
Anyone who has a busy older child who doesn’t want to stay put in the stroller, but needs to have a rest every once in a while. Probably a great second stroller for someone who only needs to accommodate a second child for specific situations – like at the mall or at a museum.
