What's the best wagon out there? I want one that will seat two kids, has storage and cup holders, and possibly a trailer. Any recommendations? I've looked online and found good ones from Radio Flyer, Little Tikes, and One Step Ahead.

My vote is Radio Flyer. I LOVE it because it has SEAT BELTS. No more worrying that the youngest one is climbing out at the zoo while I am pulling the wagon! It has cupholders and high seatbacks so they can have something to lean up against.

Hi D.,

We have a wagon that we purchased from Cut Rate Toys that has two separate compartments for two children. Its kind of like a choo choo train. I think it is by Step 2. Anyway, this one is really easy to pull and turn with the separate compartments. It also has two cup holders and small storage area under one of the seats. It is purple and green and is very cute. I believe there is a verson of this that I saw on the internet one time that has three comparments. We also have a radio flyer wagon that is the classic original style but it has a back rest and seat belt on one side. But the rf wagon is better for one child and the choo choo one is better for two. This one is easy to pull also but I prefer the other one. My cousin has the green step 2 wagon that has a little door on it and two children fit in one compartment. She really likes this one but I found it difficult to pull. Hope this helps you decide.

Ditto on the Step 2 wagon. It is extremely durable. You should be able to find both the wagon and trailer on the internet, and I see the wagon in many stores. One Step Ahead has some interesting products, but as a rule, I stick with the tried and true products sold by the mass retailers. They are usually cheaper and better, imo.
Have fun!

I have the Radio Flyer and it's great, except for the fact that it is almost impossible for my daughter to get in & out of it by herself. She is on the small side and since there is no "door" kids have to be able to climb over the side of the wagon in order to get in & out themselves. It may not be an issue for your 2 & 3 year old if they are average size or bigger, but it's worth thinking about for when the little one wants to start to go in the wagon too. I later saw one at Toys R Us (I honestly can't remember if it was Little Tikes or One Step Ahead) that had a door on the side and wished I'd done more research and gotten that instead.

Looks like Step 2 is a winner. We just got the wagon w/out the trailor two weeks ago. I like that it's deep enough that my 13 month old hasn't tried climbing out. Also, they LOVE hiding things in the storage section. We used it at the pumpkin patch and it held the girls AND our jars of apple butter. Can't wait to try it for Halloween!

I have had a few wagons. The Step 2 is really nice because it has the door,2 seats,cup holders,and a little storage under the seat(the kids love to bring things or collect things and sometimes I put my wallet there). Then you can also get the trailer or trailers(depending how many you want or need) and use 1 for cooler,diaper bag or child. The children love it because its like a train.
The Radio Flyer is nice also. It has 2 seats,seatbelts,and can also lay the back down so its flat. You can get extra trailers. I really like this wagon its easier to pull and a bit more durable.
Step 2 is cheaper than the Radio Flyer but both work well its really up to your preference. If I were you I would go to Toys R Us and pull both of them and see what you like and don't like. Then after that if you know what you want you can look on craislist or ebay to get one a bit cheaper or maybe really cheap. Good luck

I use the Step Two wagon and trailer, and found it to be great! I know the Radio Flyer appears to have more options availble now than when I bought my Step Two, but I have found the Step Two VERY durable, and has the two seats on each side, one has a compartment under, the cup holders and the trailer. I had a hard time finding the trailer at stores, but found one new on ebay that I bought.
