Whether frequenting our weekly farmer’s market, going to the beach, or heading out on an outdoor adventure, I can’t help but notice the exploding popularity of stroller wagons. Families are increasingly foregoing their typical stroller in favor of a foldable wagon. Among their perks: seating for more than one child, extra storage, and rugged wheels for anything ranging from sidewalks to dirt paths.
Wonderfold is a key player in the growing trend of stroller wagons, and they’ve made a mark going above and beyond the basics. Their range of strollers — from Original to Luxe — takes the basic folding stroller wagon to another level. Read on for my take on their 2-seater luxury-grade offering, the Wonderfold W2 Luxe Stroller Wagon.
- High-quality construction and materials, including all-terrain wheels and a detachable sun canopy
- Smooth steering for parents
- Comfortable seats with safety harnesses for kids
- Extra zippered storage
- 2-seater and 4-seater options
We don't like
- 2-3 times heavier than most strollers
- Folded wagon remains too large for many car trunks
- Size and weight can be unwieldy without garage storage
Luxury Materials, Smooth Ride
Upon unboxing my W2 Luxe Stroller Wagon, I could tell that it was indeed a luxe product. The wheels have heft; the seats screams toddler comfort; and the storage compartment is a mom’s dream. Once assembled (with an assist from my husband), I finally got a sense for the wagon in all of its glory. We took it for a spin at our neighborhood farmer’s market the next foggy Bay Area morning.
Once we got the wagon down the stairs and unfolded, it was smooth driving from there. First and foremost, the wagon is easy to unfold and strap your child(ren) into. The adjustable push-handle made it easy for me to steer, and my daughter was secured in her raised seat with a 5-point harness. We had plenty of room for our market spoils and other neighborhood errands, and the foot brake worked seamlessly during our stops. While we didn’t need the sun canopy on account of the fog, I love knowing that it attaches easily for sunny days ahead.
Hefty Dimensions, With Benefits
Transparently, I needed my husband’s help to get the wagon to street level on our farmer’s market outing, as its luxe materials translate to an overall weight of 55 pounds. Our home has steps to get to street level and we don’t have garage storage, so I could see this presenting a challenge for our everyday use. This certainly won’t be an issue for customers with garage storage or a street-level entryway, but the Original model’s 40 pound weight and slimmer dimensions may have been a better fit for our living circumstances.
Stroller wagons also have a larger footprint than many strollers. The W2 Luxe Stroller Wagon clocks in at 20 inches wide, 25 inches deep, and 43 inches high, requiring a sizable footprint in a garage, entryway, or car trunk. But along with the larger size comes plenty of benefits—the stroller’s seating capacity, storage capacity and amenities like all-terrain wheels and an adjustable canopy far outweigh the extra storage space for many families.
If the baseline amenities of the W2 Luxe Stroller Wagon aren’t enough, they also offer a full range of accessories and replacement parts. For those in places with more seasonal weather patterns than what I’m used to in California, Wonderfold offers a winter weather cover, a rain cover, and a mosquito cover, allowing customizability for any climate. The Pull Handle offers flexibility to pull the wagon in addition to the push handle that’s included from the outset. And, for the frequent traveler, they sell a travel cover that’s very similar to many stroller covers on the market. All of these offerings allow even more customizability to Wonderfold Stroller Wagons, upleveling an already luxe product line.
Wonderfold Wagons are a great option for families looking to replace or level up from a standard or double stroller—particularly in the transition from the baby years to the kid years. Their website makes it easy to compare products and evaluate whether the more modest and lightweight Original model is the best fit, or if the added amenities and quality of the Elite or Luxe models is a level-up that will prove valuable to your family. Enjoy smooth drives in style and comfort for your little ones with Wonderfold Stroller Wagons—they don’t have a 4.9 star rating on their website for nothing.
