Best known for its less expensive strollers, Evenflo jumped into the stroller wagon category with this affordable entry: the Pivot Explore All-Terrain Stroller Wagon. The key feature here we liked: the handle flips so you can push or pull from either side of the stroller wagon. That was impressive in our testing.
Stroller wagons are great for outdoor adventures: the zoo, picnics, hikes, etc. One place you can’t take them, unfortunately, is Disney. The parks banned stroller wagons recently. For the best strollers for Disney, check out our other article on the Best Strollers for Disney.
Here’s more on why this choice came out on top.
What We Liked
• Two independent canopies for shade. You can shade one or both seats.
• Storage! This stroller wagon has both an under-carriage basket and traditional storage pockets. The basket attaches to either end of the wagon, which is nice.
• Removable snack tray.
• Good legroom for kiddos.
• Affordable. Some stroller wagons are priced like they emerged from a hotel mini bar. This one is much more reasonable.
• Easy to set up.
• Wheels don’t go flat. Air tires are nice for bumpy terrain, but this strollers foam/plastic tires never go flat. That makes this stroller easier to love in the long term.
• Car seat compatibility (at least with Evenflo infant seats). This requires a separate adapter, however.
What Needs Work
• No full canopy. Other stroller wagons have canopies that cover the entire stroller—and these work better for older kiddos.
• No sleeping. Some stroller wagons double as playpens that enable kids to take a nap. The maker of this stroller wagon says no to naps. And the footwell inside the wagon makes napping difficult away.
• Heavy. At 34.7 lbs., the Pivot Explore All-Terrain Stroller Wagon is a beast to haul in and out of a trunk.
• Better with two kids than one. With only one child, we found the stroller wagon becomes unbalanced in our testing.
• Fold could be easier.
