Joovy Ergo Caboose Stroller Review

Joovy Ergo Caboose

Ergo, St. Patrick’s Day Boys

Long before Stroller Prince 2.0 made his way into this world, we felt like somebody was missing. My friend Catherine felt the same way. And so we were all overjoyed when her son made his grand entrance on March 17th. Now she was considering names. “Oh, that’s a no-brainer”, I said. “Call him Patrick.” “No”, she said. “But, he was born on St. Parick’s Day, you have to!” I implore. “No”, she says. “Well”, I grumble, “If *I* ever have a boy on St. Patrick’s Day, I shall name him Patrick. And I did, and I did, or a variation thereof, heehee. Hey bro, get in hereNow on this fine summer day, we had planned to take the St. Patricks’ Day boys for a spin in my new Joovy Ergo Caboose. It would be perfect. The weight limit is 45 pounds for each seat. Age minimums are 6 months for the front, and 2.5 years for the back. Height limits are 44" front, and 40" back. Although, I tried it out with bigger children, and it was fine. Still pushed really well, too. This is one of the prettiest tandems I have ever seen. And so well thought out. Unlike other Sit n Stand types that carry an infant seat in the front, the Ergo Caboose places the car seat holder in the back, so you can keep a close eye on your newborn! RearAnother thing that sets the Ergo apart from the rest are the rear air tires. They do add weight, and are no doubt a contributory factor to the Ergo’s 34 pounds. But, the air tires means you will have a much smoother ride outdoors over grass, gravel, sidewalk cracks and bumps, etc. As always, it’s a trade-off.

The basket is the hugest I have ever seen on a tandem. The Ergo is 49″ long, and a whole lot of that is basket. And, check this out…
Seat flipped down over basket

You can flip the seat up, to get complete access!
Seat flipped up for better basket accessYet another unique feature is the HUGE canopy in both the front, and the back! Good looking
But, if it’s too much, you can easily push it back. 3/4 shot, huge canopies

There is a snack tray in the front, and a mesh seat. It does recline. But, if you have a "stroller napper", you probably need to get one of the optional seat pads, to make it more comfy. They come in a variety of bright colors, like lime and yellow.

Now as we are ready to take our stroll on this fine summer day, the sky turns dark. The heavens open, the rains pour down, the thunder and lightning begin. Ergo (pun intended), Derek has a change of heart. Derek rides away

But as usual, SP 2.0 takes it all in stride. We are so Lucky (pun intended.)Front viewAnd we are also lucky that the Ergo Caboose folds quickly and easily, as we are getting drenched. It’s 49″ by 24″, but it fits. Folded in car
