Radio Flyer Plastic Wagon
Kids love to play outside, but sometimes it can be difficult for parents to keep them entertained. One great creative way is by getting a wagon for them. Wagons made with thick plastic are lightweight, easy to clean, can be folded, and are usually sturdy enough to handle whatever road surface is ahead.
To choose the best plastic wagon for your child, you need to consider what they will be using it for, along with your additional transport needs, should you also use it for outings. If they are going to use this for hauling heavy items, the size needs to reflect the weight of what they plan on putting in it.
The average child can pull up to thirty pounds, so if they aren’t planning on using it for anything other than their belongings, a smaller wagon will probably work just fine. However, if you want them to play with this as a toy and don’t mind unloading their stuff each time they want to play with it, then a larger one will do just fine.
If your kids plan on playing with it all over the neighborhood and city streets, then getting hard rubber tires would be best. They will give the best traction and last the longest.

Kids love wagons and are happy to take a ride in them. And while they’re cool for kids to sit in, they are quite an easy and effective way to keep your kids entertained as well. Remember, it wasn’t too long ago (pre internet days) that we had to find creative ways to entertain ourselves as kids.
