I'm Mom to two boys who are close in age. When my younger son turned one he didn't really need any big toys as his big brother already had them, so we bought him a red pull along wagon instead.
We bought a two-seater wagon so both boys could fit in. It's been great fun and practical too. We used it for trips to the park when we didn't want the boys to fall asleep. I've used it for my younger son when taking my older son to preschooler. His big brother could jump in too if he was tired after preschool.
Now the boys are getting bigger and we use it for trips to the zoo - it can be loaded up with a picnic, drinks, spare clothes, etc. And if one of the boys is tired they can get a ride for a while. They boys can also use the wagon to play with and pull their own toys down to the park.
Everytime we go out with the pull along wagon it gets lots of comments from parents and kids. We actually acquired a second wagon which visiting friends and cousins can ride it. That one has a different design and there are benefits to each.
In this article I'll feature several of the best pull along wagons for infants, toddlers, preschoolers and little kids.
