We all like to think of ourselves as minimalists, but when it comes to adventuring with your child and stroller in tow, there’s always a seeming need for just a little bit more. And warm weather is here, which means outings to the beach and park. To haul all the baby backups and accoutrements, parents have long been fans of the stroller wagon. The best stroller wagons offer comfort and utility, and have a weight limit that will accommodate kids well into toddlerhood.
Rugged, practical, and spacious, you’ll find all the room you need and more for both baby and belongings in this workhorse hybrid over the coming months. (The Keenz stroller wagon, for example, has a max capacity of 110 pounds.) Modern stroller wagons are hybrids: They let you either push them like a stroller, or pull them like a wagon, and most have all the bells and whistles you’d expect from a premium stroller. They’re spacious, fit multiple kids with ease, have ample storage and all the safety accouterments (like harnesses) you need, and they actually look pretty damn cool.
A burly stroller that's a handsome workhorse, this one has face-to-face seats, an adjustable handlebar, a one-step folding design, and an adjustable UV-protected canopy. The front wheels have suspension and bearings, meaning you'll get a smooth ride on any surface. The door has a front zipper, for easy in and out. it weighs 55 pounds, and has a weight limit of 200 pounds. That's a lot of kid.
While this wagon isn't the lightest, at 33 pounds, it's one of the more feature-rich on this list. Its individual seats keep your up to two children secure with padded, five-point harnesses. When not in use, seats flip down into the body, making it a double-duty gear-hauler. It also includes a drop-down footwell, allowing children to relax in what it claims is a more natural sitting position.
When you flip the handle, this model goes from stroller mode to wagon mode. It has all-terrain wheels, UPF 50+ canopies, an interior tray for sharing snacks and drinks, individual wheel brakes, an adjustable three-position telescoping handlebar, and an exterior basket for your phone and other tech. Each seat holds a child up to 55 pounds, with a total weight limit of 120 pounds.
This is the wagon to get if you're a believer in hauling every item you may need with you. Because it's got tons of storage. Plus this wagon has a hideaway pull handle that changes it from push to pull mode and back. There's an extra cushion that can be used as a mat for napping. The basket can be used either at the front or the back, whatever suits you. The wagon fits two kids, and includes cup holders for parents. Because, coffee. There's a canopy with mosquito netting. The weight limit is 110 pounds.
While it's rigid and robust, the latest iteration by Keenz is shockingly lightweight and opens with the push of a button. Comfortably seating two securely in five-point harnesses, its ball-bearing wheels are so smooth your children will be off to dreamland in no time. The soft handlebar features a one-touch brake for safety.
