There's good and bad news about the Joey Wagon. The good news is it folds and is self-standing for compact storage when you're done using it. It can hold two kids up to age 4 or up to 55 pounds, it has a cup and snack holder that sits in between the two kids, and it has a UPF 50+ canopy. It fits in most trunks and can be gate checked at the airport. The bad news? It's expensive, but the good wagons always are.n

It's ideal for amusement park visits, site-seeing, and long walks. It can hold up to four passengers and has seatbelts for all of them. It comes with a removable canopy and plenty of storage pockets and compartments. A front zipper door makes it easy for kids to get in and out so you don't have to lift them overtop each time. The only downside is that th wagon is on the heavy side, so with four kids inside, it might be too heavy to push for a long period of time. The wagon comes in six color options.
