Then I became a mom and when summer came around, we all needed a break from our apartment and wanted to go to the beach. I was not prepared for the amount of things you need when going anywhere with kids, but especially for a full day out. Towels, sand toys, snacks and drinks, an umbrella, a change of clothes, more toys just in case, and the list goes on and on and on.
After a couple of failed attempts—because sadly we only have two hands and one of us has to carry the toddler—we decided to invest in a wagon that could carry our stuff, but also was appropriate for our son. What a game-changer the Evenflo Pivot Xplore Wagon is.
Here’s the thing: It’s not just good for summer days. It’s ideal for apple picking, or going on a pumpkin patch, riding around your neighborhood looking at the Christmas lights or spending the day at the aquarium.
This thing is amazing. When we first took it for a stroll around our neighborhood to test it out people were legit doing a double-take trying to figure out what we were pushing. Once we took it for a real test at the beach we realized this was the ultimate wagon as it never once got stuck in the sand, even loaded with kids and towels. It has two modes, push (for stroller) or pull (for wagon) which makes it all-terrain and ready to be used both in the city and on any adventures. The basket is low enough for kids to be able to climb in and out, making it ideal for activities like the zoo or a park, when your littles will constantly be hopping in and out of it.
More to know: The Evenflo Pivot Xplore Wagon is for children who can sit up by themselves, but can be used with a their car seat adapter or the versatile toddler seat. It is super easy to collapse to store or have in the trunk of any car. People will stop and ask you what this magical carriage is about 35 times every time you take it out, so be warned!
