My parents still have the Little Tikes wagon that they bought when I was little. They use it for gardening and taking my son for rides. This one seems to be just as sturdy, but is MUCH bigger! This is great as my toddler son is very tall; he has outgrown his stroller. Also, the removable sides will be great for gardening. The drainage holes in the wagon are probably a good thing if it is left out in the weather, but I have to put a blanket in the bottom of the wagon for my son when it is chilly outside. The umbrella hole closure will not stay shut, which is a little annoying. My husband had no trouble assembling the wagon, but he is very handy. I'm not sure that it would have been easy for me. All in all, it seems like a great wagon. I hope that it lasts as long as my old Little Tikes wagon!
Little Tikes wagon wheels can wear down or break, leaving you with the option of buying a new wagon or replacing the damaged wheel(s). Not surprisingly, the latter option is less expensive. Little Tikes sells replacement wheels for some of their wagons, but, unlike traditional car or bike wheels with visible nuts and bolts, their wagon wheels have a push cap that needs to be removed before you can change the wheels. Many are unfamiliar with removing push caps, but with a little effort, you can fix the toy to make it safe and fun to use again.
