Special thanks to Joovy for providing the Caboose VaryLight in return for my honest review. As always, all opinions are my own and I do not recommend products I don’t believe in or use myself.
Last month I shared my thoughts on using the Caboose VaryLight as a sit and stand in Part 1 of my Caboose VaryLight Review. Now that baby girl is here we have installed the car seat adapter for our Chicco Key Fit 30 and it’s time to share part II of my review!
We are still loving many of the basic features of the VaryLight regardless of it’s 13 possible configurations.
The extra large canopy really blocks out the sun and gives Parker a chance to take a break and if we are lucky nap for a bit while we are out.
Parker is now in the “I do it” stage so I love having a tray table that can be removed quickly so it’s easy for him to get out of the stroller when it’s time to go on a ride or he wants to walk for a bit.
The expandable frame makes it easy to fit in the car and spacious enough when it’s in use to keep both kiddos comfortable.
The front wheel suspension and wheel lock gives the stroller a smoother ride and makes it easy to push 50+ pounds of kids up hills. Luckily the stroller is only 33 pounds despite it’s solid structure.
Most importantly, the undercarriage storage is large enough to fit the needs of both my kiddos. On longer trips we can store all the snacks and drinks along with a blanket and then secure the diaper bag to the side using hooks.
This stroller is great for long day trips or quick trips to the mall. It’s one-hand fold and ability to stand upright makes it easy and quick to get in and out of the car.
Let’s talk a little more about the use of the VaryLight with a car seat. It’s a great option for the infant and toddler pair while the infant is in a bucket car seat. Joovy has 9 adapters available to fit the following car seats:
Chicco® KeyFit 30
Graco® SnugRide® Classic Connect 35
Graco® SnugRide® Classic Connect 32
Graco® SnugRide® Click Connect 35
Graco® SnugRide® Click Connect 40
Peg Perego® Primo Viaggio SIP 30-30
Each adapter is available for purchase on the Joovy website for $49.99.
To install all you have to do it open the stroller, make sure it is either locked on the short or long frame option (not in between), and click the adapter onto the frame. Once in place you can click your car seat right into the adapter. The adapter can be removed easily and stored away when not in use.
There are 7 different configurations you can use with the car seat adapter depending on your needs. We use configuration #1 the most as it gives Parker room to lay back if he wants. Configurations with the short frame are ideal when shopping in smaller stores, walking around the city, or frequently using the elevator.
