Every great adventure really gets rollin’ when they fill up or hop on a wagon. Now they can pack up theirs—or take a ride themselves—and get the good times goin’! Wagons for kids are great ways to get them some exercise as they play, keep all their toys safe as they travel across the yard or act as a great aid for your toddlers who are just learning how to walk on their own.
There are two types of wagons to consider for your little ones. One that puts you in control, and one that gives them control. Let’s take a look!
These are the classics you might remember from your own childhood. These four-wheeled wagons typically come with a handle they can use to push, pull or assist ’em as they walk. They can be made of metal or plastic. Classic models, like the Radio Flyer, are timeless wagons perfect for haulin’ toys or the kiddos wherever there’s space to play.
Stroller wagons are great for packin’ up the littles and giving them a comfy space while you push ’em around. Stroller wagons are longer than a typical stroller and typically seat two little ones inside. They fold up similarly to strollers but include much more space to keep parenting essentials, toys and anything else you might need throughout the day.
The biggest thing to consider when buying a kid’s wagon is the age of your child. If they’re a toddler or learning to walk, you might want to consider a plastic wagon for both weight and safety reasons. If they’re a little older, they’ll love just about any type of wagon as long as they fit comfortably in it—or it’s large enough to haul all of their favorite toys wherever they go!
The adventure is about to start, and they’re ready to go!
