  • body dimensions: 5 x 17.4 x 37.5 inches  
  • fun fact: has been in continuous production for over 70 years, which is an American toy industry record

The Radio Flyer Classic Red Wagon is just great, no matter where you go. Since the extra-long handle folds under, it is also easy to transport in your car. The Radio Flyer Classic Wagon has a full-sized, all-steel seamless body and the steel wheels with rubber tires guarantee for a quiet and smooth ride. With the no-pinch ball joints, fingers are safe and due to the controlled turning radius the wagon cannot tip over.
Customer reviews rave about this Radio Flyer wagon, this is just an example: 'We are very pleased with this wagon. It was easy to assemble and the construction is solid. My little son loves his new wagon and enjoys trips around the neighborhood. This classic has definitely not gone out of style!'

  • recommended age: 18 months - 6 years 
  • body dimensions: 4.5 x 16 x 34.2 inches
  • special: small model

It has two individual canopies with UV-protection so you do not have to worry about baby getting too much sun. The wagon has an extra large storage bag so you can easily take along all you need for a day at the park or zoo. The foot-action safety brakes make sure the wagon does not roll off. At around 230 $ this wagon is a bit pricey but it is the only wagon suitable for a baby 6 months and up and it grows with your kid!

The extra deep body makes riders extra comfortable and enables you to carry really large loads. The natural wooden stake sides make this wagon very stylish. But at the same time it is also extremely practical: having the fenced edge around the wagon not only gives you more room for the youngsters and all their toys, but it adds extra security when you are pulling younger kids around. The rubber tires of the Trav-ler Wagon are quiet and they are big enough not to sink into mud, grass, or sand, unlike others often do. So this really makes a great wagon on any terrain.
