What Do You Think About a Stroller That You Pull?

Is it a stroller or a wagon?

That’s what I thought of when Veer sent me the press release on the Cruiser.

It’s a bit of a hybrid of a premium stroller – with its car seat adaptor, cup holders and canopy – merged with the utility (and fun) of a wagon.

It has the premium stroller price tag at $599 which is nothing to sneeze at. I can already hear the “$600 wagon?!?!??!” comments.

But it can hold two passengers from ages 0-5 years. It’s crafted from aircraft grade aluminum. You can push it or pull it. Can accommodate up to 150 pounds and weighs less than most double strollers. (You have my interest. Continue.)

Plus, it can fold down to fit in a small car trunk, or stand it upright to store in a closet or corner of a garage.

Not something I’d buy for one or two farmer market outings, but certainly interesting because I haven’t seen anything like it in the market. I think my kids would have loved it – especially in that “I-can-walk”-when-they-can’t stage. If you want more details, you can check out on Veer’s website.

What do you think? Do you think it’s worth the cost? Where do you think you’d use it?

  • I never really cared for wagons for my own kids. Too clunky.
    As a side note, I can see why pulled wagons with low/long handles might not be allowed in a crowded place: prekids I nearly wiped out in a very large, compressed crowd when I squeezed behind someone… and walked right into their wagon handle because I didn’t see the wagon. OUCH!! Big safety hazard all around: I bruised my shin; I nearly fell over; and I could have easily tipped the wagon over, hurting that person’s kids and/or twisting their pulling arm.

  • We have a (Keenz) Stroller Wagon and love it! My wife gets stopped by at least one person every time she uses it!

    It cost ~$360, though, I probably would’ve put my foot down on $600.

    Also, you definitely push it, not pull it, lol, that’s one of the benefits.

  • I could imagine that there are people out there with two or more kids and an active lifestyle (no car in an urban setting, or constantly going to the beach, farmers market, zoo, street fairs, etc.) where this would be really handy to schlep a baby plus stuff for the older kid(s). The foldability is a great feature and I think it’s neat that you can either push or pull the wagon. Personally I can’t ever see myself paying $600 for a wagon system, but I’m sure there are people who would.

  • I think it’s great. Living in a city as a Uber-careful first time mom, crossing streets gets my heart racing. I often end up pulling the regular stroller across just so I can lead the way and stand out to approaching cars.

  • Hmmm…the only thing I’m not sure I like about the “wagon” concept is that you are facing away from your child to pull them. Personally when I was walking my daughter everyday during the early stages I really enjoyed just being able to stare at her while she was sleeping (every mom understands what I’m talking about here). That being said, I did end up purchasing a wagon separately for our recent beach trip so I DO see the convenience factor of purchasing an “all in one” product.

    • +1 I did love gazing at their tiny sleeping faces when they were infants.
      … And then I liked being able to keep an eye on my precious little *ahem* angels when they were older and likely to cause trouble. Especially Kid #3. Climber and escape artist.

  • Looks neat…but I know Disney doesn’t allow something like this in their park. I would hate to spend so much h money and not be able to use it when it’s really needed.

    • Assume you’re talking about Florida? Just got back from Eurodisney where I’d seen people using these for the first time.

  • I use a wagon exclusively–and I love it! I have a 20 month old and watch a 2year old and it works perfectly! They can get in and out easily and we have plenty of storage space. I am intrigued by the idea of a wagon with a car seat attachment, but I don’t think I’d ever pay that much for a wagon.
