  • Wagon vs Stroller

    In my research in finding proper equipment for the disabled baby. I came across a foldable wagon with seats with a five-point harness.

    I have a quad stroller, it worked well for a few years. There are a few things like the kids' heads hitting the canopy, their boots getting stuck under the front seat, and it is huge even when folded down.

    Would you prefer a quad stroller or wagon?

    I would opt for a quad stroller as it is better to push verses pull. Pushing a load is generally less stressful on your body because you use the weight of your body and maintain a more neutral posture. When you pull, your body is often twisted and you frequently use only one hand. If you are repeating this action over many years, I imagine pushing would be better in the long run.

      Good point, this wagon does here both handles though. Lol I could push and DD could pull at the same time. She loves pulling the kids around.

    I work for a center. We have two wonder wagons! Pushing is not too bad, the best part is that you can adjust the handle. The pulling part is a bit harder but still not horible. We live in a area with NASTY bumpy sidewalks and this wagon goes over them with not too much effort. We would take two wagons of 2 year olds on 1 mile walks all summer. The wagons fold up nice and hold up well! We also use ours for hauling groceries from the car to the building, outdoor naps ect. I Love our wagons! If you have any specific questions, reach out !

    I couldnt figure out how to quote your comment! Im sorry! ive been sick. So the stroller is pretty easy to fold. I know it took a bit of practice to figure out how to best do it one handed. I pull the center strap (to start the fold) while it is pressed up against the building. I then push the side into the building (as it folds). I then snap the top strap (pretty easy to do one handed)

      Thank you, I ordered the wagon and should be here next week. I found a coupon code and saved $49.

        aswome! I love ours. We actually find us using it for things NOT related to hauling kids. Often used to drag in the groceries, new toys, laundry! I know i loved being able to use it to take all the outdoor toys in for winter from the baby playground. Too bad we have to wait for the bosses husband to come remove the big bucket of sand i used it to haul.

          The wagon arrived, the kids loved the box and all the foam packaging. LOL The one big piece of foam became a surfboard at one point.

          Anyways, that was the easiest thing to put together and it takes up way less space than the quad stroller. My dd had no trouble pulling the kids around in it. However, it did take more time than I expected to buckle them in, as lap belt and shoulder belt straps come apart.

          Overall, I do like it, and plan on selling the stroller.

            Glad it worked out!! The buckles do get "quicker" to use with time. I can get four done in under a minute now (well, if there not being sassy little wiggle worms, which is often cause there SUPER excited to go to the "library" (a little lending one down the street)>)

              I figured they will get easier.

              I put the quad stroller up for sale that was very sun faded and a little dirty. Then I stored it in the back of the pole barn. The next I was pulling it out to sell. I got $200 for it. One of the easiest sells ever.
