2017 Best Kids’ Pull Wagons
There is perhaps no more basic and classic toy for kids than a wagon, and the top 10 wagons for kids are a great example of this. These days wagons are just about as practical for entire families as they are fun for kids, coming in quite handy with all the features available for taking kids on hikes, to the zoo or simply a fun day out.
Wagons are great for kids and parents; there’s room for friends, toys, and even the family dog. Kids love being pulled around in wagons, and it makes things easier on parents during walks. My daughter got a wagon for her second birthday, and spends some days sitting in it more than her actual chair.
If your children are begging you for a wagon, you have some comparison shopping to do. Some have more features, some are larger and better for multiples. What makes a good wagon worth purchasing?
If your child is one who always wants to bring toys with them to the play, then a wagon may be right for you. Until they are at the age where they can walk by your side without running off, being able to keep them entertained while out for a stroll or headed to the park makes wagons worth it.
As long as they are able to sit independently, you are ready to begin looking for the best wagons for kids.

Top 10 Wagons for Kids:
Ages: 1 1/2 and up
For the 2017 #1 pick of the top 10 wagons for kids, here is the Radio Flyer All-Terrain Steel and Wood Wagon.
Radio Flyer is the top-notch wagon-selling brand in the nation. So, no surprise, their full-size wagon is a family favorite because of the capacity for multiple kiddos and overall reliable design. This is a classic wagon fitted with seamless, no pint hinges and joints, as well as a pull-along handle.
Ages: 1 1/2 to 8
Hitting 2nd place among the best wagons for kids this year is the Step2 All Around Canopy Wagon.
I love how convenient the Canopy Wagon would be for a stroll through the park on a summer afternoon. Or, even a comfy seat for a backyard view of fireworks in July. While the canopy provides lots of great shade, the real winner is the 3-in-1 seat: bed, chair, table.
Another among the top children’s pull wagons for 2017 — Radio Flyer My 1st 2-in-1 Wagon.
This 2-in-1 would be the perfect size for taking stuffed animals for a quick walk through the neighborhood or backyard. The wagon itself is deep, providing plenty of room for kiddos or their must-have toys. Lovin’ the signature red too!
Ages: 1 1/2 to 5
The Radio Flyer 3-in-1 EZ Fold Wagon arrives next on the list.
I saw a few of these in use at an aquarium last week. And it looked amazing! The kids looked comfortable, their mom was happy, and the entire trip appeared to be made easier and less stressful. That is reason enough for any parent to invest in an EZ-Fold Wagon.
Ages: 1 1/2 to 5
The Radio Flyer Deluxe All-Terrain Family Wagon also makes it to the “best of” for kids this year.
This all-terrain ride-on is decked in classic red with the signature Radio Flyer scrawled on the sides. Traditional look, yes, but this one is canopied and accommodating for multiple youngsters at once. Includes seatbelts for safety.
Ages: 1 1/2 to 6
Next up – Step2 Wagon for Two Plus.
I love, love, love, this wagon because of the color. Yep, this one is blue. Which is a breath of fresh air and a step away from the usual reds. This wagon is a two-seater with a latch door, deep seat well, and extra-long pull-along handle. Also comes with seatbelts.
Ages: 1 1/2 to 5
Making a comeback for the 2017 top picks in kids’ pull wagons is the Radio Flyer All-Terrain Pathfinder.
The Pathfinder looks awesome because of the spacious interior and super-comfortable, high-backed seats. Other inclusions are 4 child-sized cup holders, two seatbelts, an extra-long pull-anywhere handle, and springy, shock-absorbent wheels. The seats fold down for a flat ride-around surface too.
Ages: 3 and up
Love this! 🙂 Another hit among kids’ toy wagons this year is a returning favorite – Radio Flyer Little Red Wagon.
One of the true classics. This Radio Flyer wagon is an original but revamped with a seamless design for no-scratch edges and no-pinch hinges. Ideal for imaginative, adventurous kiddos with lots of stuffed animals.
Ages: 1 1/2 to 4
Falling in at #9 on the list – Step2 Whisper Ride Touring Wagon.
From the creators of the Whisper ride-on, this is the Whisper Wagon, an accommodating ride for two kiddos, with molded, comfy seats, a snack table, and removable side rails. Seatbelts are also included for safety on all-terrain, sometimes bumpy rides.
Ages: 1 1/2 and up
Radio Flyer Ultimate Comfort Wagon is the final pick among this year’s top ten kids’ wagons.
This Radio Flyer original is my favorite on the list because of the padded seats and overall feeling of luxury. The wagon is spacious and canopied, with storage pockets on the seats for snacks and take-everywhere toys. There are also extra-large, smooth-rollin’ wheels that are super-quiet.

Things To Look For In A Good Wagon
The days of the old red Radio Flyer metal wagon are gone, and so too are the standards for wagons. Many parents want something strong and comfortable that they can take with them to the beach, the baseball game in the park, and everything in between.
What are the most important things to look for when choosing the right wagon for your family?
- Easy to navigate
Some wagons will only have one seat, and that’s ok. Just make sure that whatever seats that are present, have seatbelts. A ‘locking’ door latch is also helpful in keeping the ride safe.
Easy to navigate
When looking for a good wagon, look for adequate leg space. If more than one child is riding, there should be enough room for them both to sit comfortably. Some wagons have storage areas beneath the seats for objects, in order to offer more space for riders.
