Like its sister folding wagon, plastic wagons have come a long way baby! And we’re starting to see some big steps being taken by them in the all-terrain category. We love these wagons because of all the gadgets; seat belts, storage, shade and drink holders. What will they thin up and roto-mold next? A top pick when it comes to hard ground, but some models are getting a bolder tread and wider stance – perfect for daring parents to venture off the bike path. Plastic wagons weigh less than their wood/metal counterparts so think about who will be tossing it in the minivan most of the time.
We suggest: Keep it out of the elements when not in use. The plastic will eventually dry out and become brittle if exposed to extreme heat and cold. A good bet for lighter weight cargo carrying.
