This versatile wagon features patented, five-way flip-and-fold seats for multiple riding options, padded seat cushions for comfort and an extra-large, expandable rear storage compartment to tote a family’s worth of necessities. The UV protection canopy allows for all-day adventures, and storage for water bottles, gadgets and other must-haves keeps everything within reach. It can offer a practical alternative to a double stroller for parents of small children. Launch date: July 2009.
— This update on the traditional red wagon retains its slick red, black and white coloring but adds padded seats, a large canopy for shade, and a storage area. Candace Lindemann of Mamanista likens the wagon to a “mobile base,” perfect for a long day of outdoor activities with room to spare for tired kids, their possessions, and the day’s purchases. Experimental Mommy loved the versatility, adjustability and heat protection offered by the wagon.
