Rated 5 out of 5 by thequiltygardener Great wagon
We purchased this wagon last Christmas for our Grandson and have gotten a lot of use out of it. The only thing I think would be nice is if there was some kind of seat belt in it. I put his BIG teddy bear in the back of it for some support and this has worked for me. His little face just lights up when he knows he's going in his wagon to help grandma walk the dog. We're still waiting to get a good snow to try out the skies on it.

I bought this for my 6 month old son. He loves it so far. I went for the whole thing and got the skis with it. Instead of buying the wagon and sled. I know realize the skis/wheels aren't an easy swap. I would have just done the wagon and bought a sled separately knowing that since its not always snowy in the winter where I live.

Rated 3 out of 5 by NorthernNHShopper Great but one major flaw
We got this as a gift for our 1+ year old daughter. She loves it, and overall the wagon is great.
HOWEVER, there is a major design flaw that really prevents this from being easy to use and easy to switch between skis and wheels: The cotter pin design is flawed. In order to switch between skis and wheels, the cotter pins have to be perfectly straight and stuck together to even get close to getting pushed through the holes in the plastic cap and the wheel/ski itself. Then, to get the cotter pins to lock so everything stays in place, you then have to figure out how to wedge a needlenose plier in there, then bend the cotter pin (which means the pin will eventually have bent too much and break!). Then to take off the wheel/ski, you need to get that plier in there again, straighten the pin somehow (if you can at all), and then somehow wrench the pin from the hole (we had to use a corkscrew to get leverage). It was extremely frustrating. They should have a cotter pin similar to those on tractors/trailer hitches, where the straight part goes in the hole, and the outer, bumpy part goes on the outside of the axle/plastic cap.
Really surprised at LL Bean; this is the first item I've purchased from them that I was actually disappointed in (especially since it's so expensive!)

This wagon was purchased for our 18 month old grandson, his parents enjoy spending time outdoors with him and their golden retriever. This wagon shipped on time but had an awful smell upon arrival. I contacted LLBean CS (they were very courteous) while they explained that this is a common question , all we had to do was air the tires out, smell was gone in a few days. The wagon was recently used as a sled during the first snowfall of the season, our grandson loved it as did his parents. I expect this to become a tradition for yours to come.

Great wagon! Our one year old twins love it. We were looking for a sturdy wagon with real tires and decent steering and this is it. We also love that it converts to a sled since we were looking to find one of those too. We haven't put the skiis on yet, so we can't comment on how well it works as a sled.
One negative is that it was missing a nut on arrival, but Bean sent us a replacement very quickly.
Two suggestions- add a seat belt (our kids are squirmy, so we put in our own); and raise the sides a little higher.

Rated 5 out of 5 by chicklet036 Great wagon!
We bought this for my son's first Christmas - it looked adorable by the tree filled with presents! We had a mild winter and only got to use the skis once in the snow, but it was fantastic. We've used the wagon with tires on quite a bit - the tires are great and ride smoothly even over bumpy stones. The *only* drawbacks in my mind are that the sides aren't locked in and sometimes my son pulls them up, and I wish there was a safety buckle/seat belt. Other than that, it's a GREAT, sturdy, very attractive wagon & worth the price!

I would recommend this wagon/sleigh to everyone. It doesn't matter what age your child is, for a newborn the car seat fits right in the wagon.

by jlbuckner GREAT Wagon!
This is the best wagon I've ever used! The padding is a wonderful accessory for my 11-month-old. The wheels are sturdy, creating a smooth ride.
Unfortunately the snow melted before I had the chance to use the skis, but they seem like they'll be a very handy accessory once it snows again.
I highly recommend this wagon!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sheilly Wagon's a Bit Hit with the Kids!!!
This wagon was a Christmas gift for our two boys 2yrs and 8 months. The 2yr old loved it from the assembly to being pulled around the property. The 8mon old loves having rides with his brother and it serves as a great outside "playpen"! The 2yr old loves his "wagin rides"!
The overall quality is excellent, sturdy wheel structure/frame and handle is made of hard plastic. The axle/wheel hub is metal/steel. The plastic should prevent rusting. The wagon bed is sturdy wood with a decent finish. Padding is great and easy to take on and off.
The RAILS are the only disappointment. They are made of wood but are thin and don't feel sturdy. They do not fit snugly into the rail holders, which is not a big issue. Compared to the Radio Flyer rails they are flimsy.
It would be great if the wagon was a couple inches longer and had two single rails on the sides so toddlers could remove one and climb out without having the side completely open.
Or one side a long rail and the other two single rails.
We are very please overall, but improvements are always great!!

I have waited to write the review until after we gave the wagon to our 10 month old grandson for Christmas to see how it worked out. He's not into opening gifts yet and was more interested in looking at his books at my house than most of his Christmas gifts. We had his parents open the box with the skiis first. Boy did they have a confused look on their faces! Then my husband brought in the wagon from the other room. We put him in it and pulled him around the loop in our house. He held on and smiled from ear to ear. He loved it and didn't want to get out. Everyone liked it. It is a very impressive wagon. The wheels are quite big which makes it very easy to tool around. And the padding makes it look very comfortable. It wasn't hard to put together, either. My son can't wait for snow so he can change the tires for the skiis and pull his son out in the snow. It is going to be hard to top this for next Christmas.
