All-Terrain Cargo Wagon

Sure, it costs a bit more than the plastic version, but this fire engine red wagon screams fun so loudly, no kid could possibly resist taking it for a spin. At 33 1/2 inches long, the bed can easily fit two little loungers on a pile of pillows. The finished wooden stake-sides lift out, leaving a version of the red metal wagon you remember from childhood, and the extra long handle makes pulling easy. This Radio Flyer has a controlled turning radius to prevent tipping and a no-pinch ball joint to keep fingers safe. The final touch? Big air tires, so young kids can pull on bumpy roads, or drag it through the sandbox. (Radio Flyer, $144)
