  • This is a great idea, but hard to push because it is so long. My picky daughter didn't like the jump seat. The front was great and fits baby seat! Jul 25, 2019

  • I love this stroller. It's easy to push and is lightweight to carry around. The basket is a bit small, but I can live with that. The front seat is big enough for my 3 year old, but he likes to stand May 06, 2019

  • Barely used and the side arm bent somehow in the trunk. Tray or infant seat not attachable now. Company wouldn't offer any support or even parts for purchase because it wasn't the latest model. Apr 23, 2019

    I use this stroller the least (out of three) because it is huge and takes up my entire trunk even when folded down. Otherwise, lots of storage space and pretty lightweight for the size. Feb 11, 2019

    I used this originally as a double stroller with my oldest two but it's just as great for just one baby - lots of room for all the additional things I need to bring along. Joovy quality is excellent. Feb 06, 2019

  • It's super lightweight. Very convienent with the second seat to put older siblings' bags and coats. However, it is not easy to steer an when it folds up, annoyingly, the footrest flops out. Hard fold. Oct 24, 2018

  • Hard to fold and open. Also hard to maneuver when kid is inside. Also hard to reach the basket. Jun 14, 2018

  • Works awesome for my infant and 4 Year old. Gives the 4 year old a little freedom to get up and move around and the option to sit when she's tired. Jun 07, 2018

  • Just bought it! Great for my 2 year old and 2 mo old. Big sun canopy. Easy to steer. Back seat slides if you don’t strap in place. Short length = doesn’t feel like a double stroller. Feb 17, 2018

    Great lightweight stroller for 2 kids. And if your 1st child isn't old enough to sit in the back, you can add another seat like the Caboose Too Ultralight. Jan 30, 2018

  • We took this on a trip to Cali for use with a 4 year old and a car seat in the front. It wasn’t perfect! I would definitely say that the sunshades js the best feature of this strollers stroller! Dec 05, 2017

  • Love that my 4yr. old can hop on the back, but if you have an infant in a car seat there isn’t room for older child to sit. Standing is the only option. Minimal storage and still a bit bulky. Nov 30, 2017

  • Joovy stopped making the add on seat for this product. Pretty heavy and you'll need a big trunk to carry. Love that it fits most car seats. Best for 6m+ kid and an older toddler who can sit on bench Nov 27, 2017

  • Functional and lightweight for a baby and a toddler. Basket is moderately sized but difficult to access with the sliding seat, especially if your toddler is sitting buckled in. Sep 24, 2017

  • It's a little hard to control but I really do like it. Both my newborn with carseat attachment and my 4 year old can ride and has a huge basket! Sep 21, 2017

  • with an infant and toddler a double was a must and this thing is a life saver! love the option for my child to sit down or stand as shes always changing her mind. we bought the extra seat too Jul 12, 2017

  • Was looking for a sit and stand option for my kiddos, and while this concept was good, I found the maneuverability less than desirable, and the storage was inaccessible. May 09, 2017

  • Best double stroller ever. I bought this to use with baby 4&5 and we use it allll the time. Lightweight (for a double), compact, and very easy to use. I like that I can use it by myself- w/o my hubby May 06, 2017

  • Very light weight. Apr 05, 2017

    GOOD: compact+light for a double; comes w/ parent console & snack tray; OK storage space BAD: uncomfortable seats; big when folded; not easy to maneuver *great idea but falls short of expectations* Feb 10, 2017

  • Love how light and compact this stroller is. Carries two kids with ease. Only con is that it can be hard to turn when weighed down with a toddler and preschooler. Dec 15, 2016

    Perfect for infant and a toddler who likes to jump on and jump off. Folds flat & lightweight. Con: Not intended for infant car seat + sitting toddler. The toddler can sit, but will be crouched over. Nov 30, 2016

  • I like the 2 seat/sit stand option, but steering is difficult. With a fussy baby in hand it's impossible to steer one handed. A great stroller for the zoo. Kids and get in and out easily and even view Nov 11, 2016

  • My sons ankle was caught in the middle of the front double wheel & scared me that I had broken his foot! He's not even 2.5, 60th percentile - yet his legs were too long for the footrest in front. Sep 27, 2016

  • Bought this and returned it. Very hard to handle in the city. Might be good for walking around the mall but terrible on Chicago sidewalks. Sep 02, 2016

  • Not enough room for the child in the back. Difficult to fold and sort of bulky for an "ultralight". Very little room in the basket underneath. Maneuvers reasonably well. Really cannot wait to upgrade. Mar 25, 2016

  • I LOVE this - it fits so easily in our car and my two children use it all the time. My kids love the option to be able to stand or sit in the back, too. Sep 30, 2014

    While the idea is wonderful, this stroller was very hard to maneuver around stores. It was heavy and just didn't turn easily like a traditional double. Jan 30, 2014

  • I am starting to use this stroller more and more, now that my youngest is 1 and my oldest likes to pop on and off all the time. It's much less cumbersome to navigate through crowded areas, but I think "ultralight" is an oversell. May 31, 2013

  • not so great when using a carseat, because the back "stand" area gets too small. But once I ditched using the carseat, this became my go-to staple. Feb 13, 2013
