joovy.com; $150My children were born three and a half years apart. That put Finn, my older son, between outgrowing his stroller, but still too young to walk very far.
With my fair share of oh-my-gosh-there-is-about-to-be-two-of-them anxiety, I wanted a stroller that could accommodate the baby and keep the toddler close.
Enter the Joovy Caboose.
The Joovy Caboose is equipped with a universal car seat attachment system so we could use it with Rowan immediately. (Note: While this is a double stroller, it's not meant for twins, as it can only hold one car seat. Joovy makes a Big Caboose for that.)
Now Ro sits up front while Finn tags along on the platform. Finn can choose if he wants to stand up or if he wants to sit on the seat. Or he can make us stop every five seconds while he switches. Which is fun. For him.
When we first got the Caboose, we marveled at its design. It's lightweight and easy to steer and folds up compactly with ease. It has a wide canopy that can be adjusted for sun protection, and it also has a large basket and a few storage pockets for the things you want to take along with you.
The Caboose may cost more than your average double stroller, but it's been worth every penny. It's dependable and can stand up to what two children dish out -- it provides choices for the older child, safety for the younger one, and peace of mind for me, as I don't have to watch traffic and my preschooler at the same time.
