Probably one of the biggest childhood traditions outside of water balloon fights and the Boogeyman have been red wagons. Whether piling all your stuffed toys on a caravan down the street or dragging your baby brother hoping someone will take him off your hands, red wagons have played a role in almost all of our childhoods. And even today, children can enjoy this traveling toy with the same joy that we experienced when we were young.
Red wagons today come in different sizes, and even in collapsible or not. Collapsible wagons fold up for easy storage, and you won’t trip over them in the yard if your kids forget to put them away. Instead of the traditional red metal, collapsible wagons are made from red plastic, so you can simply fold them up and store them in the closet until your children are ready for another adventure. If you have a harder time handling messes, then the collapsible red wagon is definitely the best toy you can give your children.
Besides the fun and uses for kids, how can a red wagon help parents? It’s a cheaper option for your older children than a stroller, and can help with hot day meltdowns from all the walking if they’re sitting comfortable in their red wagon. You can get to your destination faster, and with with fewer meltdowns and tantrums. Outings to the park are a lot nicer when the kids are in a good mood, instead of complaining about all the walking!
Red wagons have and always will continue to invoke a sense of childlike wonder, from generation to generation. Whether it’s a toy for your children, or even a sneaky tool to make your life easier, the red wagon is a great toy to have for your entire family.
