Joovy understands that as families grow their strolling needs change, even on a daily basis. The concept behind the VaryLight is the term variable – an adjective that describes changeability. There has never been a tandem stroller that expands and contracts the way the VaryLight does to meet your family needs. With various riding configurations, it’s like having several strollers in one!
The Caboose VaryLight includes a unique telescopic frame that expands the stroller from a single to a full-size double in seconds. In it’s compact position (43.5 inches long), the Caboose VaryLight can be used as a standard single stroller or with a newborn in an infant car seat. In this compact mode, there is still enough room for an older child to stand on the rear platform.
When strolling with two children, the frame extends to provide more room for your older child to sit on the rear bench seat – even when the front seat is fully reclined. The older child also has the option of standing on the built-in platform. We know that older children love this feature as it allows them to easily hop on or off. The stroller measures 49.75 inches long in extended position.
The VaryLight features Joovy’s new buckle system for securing children comfortably into the seats with a 5-point harness in the front and a 3-point harness in the rear. A swing-away tray that can be attached in either front or back to hold snacks and drinks, and an oversized canopy with sun visor extension provides extra protection. The wheels on the Caboose VaryLight offer an exceptional ride – featuring polyurethane tires and sealed bearings to ensure smooth handling and superior maneuverability. Quick-release wheels make it easy to take off the wheels for storage. With a one-hand fold, the stroller can fold up easily in the single or extended position.
Parents with infants have a choice of mounting select infant car seats in the front or rear of the Caboose VaryLight with our car seat adapters (sold separately). Other accessories available are a custom rain cover that expands to fit the VaryLight and a parent organizer with cup holders.
The real beauty of the Caboose VaryLight is not just in the modern frame and contemporary styling, but rather that in a matter of seconds, parents can change the seat configurations to accommodate the needs of their family. JPMA certified.
PLEASE NOTE: The Caboose VaryLight has 2 positions: short and long. The stroller comes out of the box in the short position. It is very important that the stroller be in one of these two positions (and not in between) when strolling with your children.
The adjustment lever to extend and shrink the frame is found under the front seat. Squeeze this lever and pull the front seat forward until it locks into place. To shorten the frame squeeze the lever and push the front seat back until the seat locks into place.
To test that the stroller is properly seated in one of the two positions, perform the “PUSH/PULL test”. After adjusting to long or short frame position, simply push and pull the front two wheels by placing hands on the frame above the front wheels and push inward. If the frame is locked in place, you will not be able to push or pull the frame. If the frame moves or folds inward, the front seat must be locked into place before strolling.
