What to Consider When Choosing a Baby Wagon

Getting a good toddler wagon can bring you a lot of advantages. It can entertain your children and help you move them around conveniently and without much effort.

But how do you find a nice, high-quality pull wagon for your kids? And how do you pick the best possible option?

The answer is simple: you need to be attentive and meticulous. Paying attention to the wagon’s features will help you determine whether it’s a suitable model for you and your kids. Think about what you need and see whether the wagon you’re considering meets your expectations.

And to help you with that here’s the list of the most important features you should definitely review:

Capacity. This one is obvious: how many kids do you plan to carry in the wagon? Do you have one baby, twins, or maybe triplets? Depending on that, you should pick the model with the appropriate capacity for your family.

Age. Your choice will also depend on your childrens age. For toddlers, the carriage should have more protective features. And for older kids, for instance, the wagon should be bigger, wider, and maybe feature some extra accessories like cup holders.

Design and materials. There are plenty of options to choose from, each of which offers its own benefits and drawbacks. For instance, metal wagons usually have a sturdy metal undercarriage, while plastic models don’t have an undercarriage and feature a plain, solid plastic construction.

There are also wood wagons, which look classy and cute but are not suitable for all weather conditions. Wooden frames will deteriorate fast when used in the regions where it constantly rains or snows. At the same time, wood wagons are the best for warm climates since this material doesn’t get hot fast in the sun.

Safety. This feature is extremely important, especially if you have small toddlers or infants. Consider wagons with high walls, seatbelts, smooth edges, and a sturdy, reliable build.

Wheels. This part of the whole construction is what influences the way your wagon moves, turns, and performs on a challenging terrain. They are usually steel or plastic, with inflatable or solid rubber tires. Steel offers a better durability while plastic models are more lightweight. Therefore, if you need a wagon for an occasional use, the plastic wheels will suffice. However, for a more heavy-duty option, solid rubber tires and steel wheels would be the best choice.

Price. Of course, the price also matters when it comes to picking the best wagons for kids. Here, you get what you pay for (in the majority of cases). Cheap models under $100 usually offer a more basic, simple construction without all the bells and whistles.

There are some great models under $200 that feature a folding design, canopies with the UV protection, and even cup holders for your kid’s drink. However, if you are ready to invest more, there are some really heavy-duty all-terrain wagons that cost over $200 and offer more fancy features like padded seats, customization, modern designs, high weight capacity, super durable wheels, and more.

Stability. We all know that kids are quite active, even while sitting in their wagon. Therefore, when shopping for one, you need to see how stable it is. It has to feature a heavy, solid base, so that it won’t tip and fall over if your children decide to become more active during the ride.

Durability. Of course, you want a durable wagon that will serve you for more than just a couple of months. To find one, you should look at its materials. Another thing that can help you is reading other users’ reviews. Based on other people’s experience with a certain model, you will be able to see how reliable it is.

Portability, flexibility, versatility. These features are important since they make the whole usage process easier. Portability implies the foldable design, which will allow you to transport the wagon in your car (and, as a bonus, to store it more efficiently).

Flexible and versatile wagons offer some extra features, like storage compartments (for your childrens snacks or toys), removable canopy, swivel wheels, etc. Such models are highly efficient in use but cost more.

Color. This criterion is really a matter of your (and your kids’) personal preference. The most popular color option for children’s wagons is red, which has become a classic. Wooden models usually feature a natural look and can be sanded, stained, or dyed lightly.

Oftentimes, manufacturers paint the wheels and the fabric (the canopy, for instance) to add a more cheerful and bright note to the overall exterior. It is always a good idea to let your child pick the color since he or she is the one who is going to spend the most time with it. If you get your children something they don’t like, you will simply waste your money for nothing.
