You all know how much I LOVE Step2. They offer nothing but the best products for indoor and outdoor play, and all of their products are built to last for years! Yes, they really are durable enough to be passed on to many different children. I loved Step2 when my 12 year old was a toddler, and I love them just as much now! This is hands down my favorite company ever, and it's not just because they're Ohio based and American made. I know I always mention this, but being a North-Eastern Ohio native myself, I have to show some hometown pride! Can you really blame me, though? Step2 is one of the best things to come out of Ohio, aside from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Cedar Point! These are entirely different posts altogether, though! I am an Ohio gal at heart, and am so proud to be able to help represent Step2 in their 2012 Test Drive Moms campaign. Not only is it an honor, it's a complete pleasure!
Well, I recently got the opportunity to review yet another fantastic product from them, the Step2 Wagon for Two Plus in the newly released pink color! I was beyond thrilled, since with 2 active toddlers, a 2-seater wagon has been quite high on my wish-list. Since Step2 is synonymous for quality, of course this exact wagon was the one I have been drooling over! Their previous versions are available in an attractive Hunter Green as well as an adorable OSU model. (That's Ohio State University, for you non-Buckeyes out there!) The pink color is brand new, and I was thrilled to be able to be one of the first owners of this awesome new design! Yes, I have both a girl AND a boy, but I have no problem toting my son around with his sister in a pink wagon. None at all. No matter what the color, this wagon is loads of fun for any little person!
When our Wagon for Two Plus arrived, I was ecstatic and couldn't wait for my husband to get home to assemble it. Yes, I am extremely mechanically challenged, so he puts together everything that needs assembly. It saves me a ton of headache, and when he puts things together, I am always certain it's been done right. After all, he IS a "car guy" and spent many years repairing vehicles. If he can repair an engine, he can put together a wagon!
My husband had the Step2 Wagon for Two Plus put together and ready to roll in about 20 minutes. It was quick, easy, and posed no challenge for him at all. The first thing I noticed about the assembled product was the quality. Of course I expected a fantastic product from the start. Step2 is known for their superior quality, and we were not disappointed here. This wagon is sturdy, well-designed, and offers a ton of extras that are sure to make any outing with little ones even more fun!
The Step2 Wagon for Two Plus is truly a wonderful product with a lot of great features that any parent is sure to appreciate. First of all, this wagon has 2 molded seats, perfectly sized for small children. Each seat even offers a seat-belt for added safety. This is so important, since my kids are little monkeys and love to climb. The seat belts help assure me that while riding in their wagon, they will remain seated as they should be. The weight capacity for this wagon is 75lbs, which will provide years of enjoyment for little ones.
Other things I love about this wagon are the cup-holders and the "secret compartment" as my 12 year old likes to call it. The Wagon for Two Plus offers space for 2 sippy cups or cans, which definitely helps make a typical day at the park an easy endeavor. The kids' drinks are right there within reach, and remain secure within the cup-holders even when the wagon is being pulled. There is even a special compartment under one of the 2 seats that is the perfect size for snacks, bug repellent, a diaper or 2, and even that special toy! Yep, once again, the team at Step2 have thought of everything! Ohio people are geniuses, after all!
On top of that, there is an easy-latch door for convenient entry and exit, as well as a long handle that folds under for easy transport of the wagon. This is a HUGE plus, since we often pack things up in the truck to head to the park or family cookouts. There aren't any sidewalks in my neighborhood, so I just feel safer going by car and then unpacking our gear. This wagon is highly portable, and doesn't take up a whole lot of space in the back of a Chevy Suburban. It even fits comfortably in the trunk of my 2006 Mercedes E350!
Take a look at the awesome features of the Wagon for Two Plus!
So while you can see that the Step2 Wagon for Two Plus is absolutely adorable and full of awesome features, it also has to pass the "kid test." What's a kids' product if the children don't love it? When we took Sophie and Xander outside to test out their new wagon, they were both incredibly excited. I even put Xander in his big sister's pink hat to match the wagon's cheerful color! Hey...Don't judge...Real men wear pink! He actually loves this fuzzy hat, and he wanted to wear it. That's perfectly okay with this mama!
Take a look at my little ones enjoying the Step2 Wagon for Two Plus! So much fun!
As you can see, they absolutely LOVE this wagon! Here is a cute video of my soon-to-be 12 year old pulling my toddlers around in the Step2 Wagon for Two Plus! He had just as much fun as they did! He asks me every single day now if we can take the babies for a walk in this great wagon! Of course I am happy to oblige! All of my kids love heading out in this wagon!
Overall, I am totally impressed by the Step2 Wagon for Two Plus. This is an awesome product for families with small children. Even if you only have one little one, this wagon is great for play-dates with a friend. The wagon is sturdy, durable, and easy to pull. Add to that the drink and snack storage, and you have the perfect wagon for trips to the park, the zoo, or anywhere else you plan to go! My kids love their Step2 Wagon for Two Plus, almost as much as I do. And since this product bears the Step2 name, I know I can trust that I will get many years of use out of this wagon. Again, Step2 didn't disappoint with this amazing and super-fun product. I would definitely recommend the Step2 Wagon for Two to any family that loves to take their little ones on adventures!
