Evenflo Pivot Xplore All-Terrain Double Stroller Wagon Review- the upgrade we needed!
It's not too often that I come across a product that's so game-changing I feel the need to dedicate a whole blog post to it. I recently bought this Evenflo Pivot Xplore All-Terrain Double Stroller Wagon and I wanted to share the features as well as the pros and cons. This post isn't sponsored and I wasn't compensated in any way. Before I made the purchase, I looked online to see if I could find an extensive review on a blog and I couldn't. Hopefully, this Evenflo Pivot Xplore All-Terrain Double Stroller Wagon Review will be helpful to those considering purchasing this stroller wagon.
Evenflo Pivot Xplore All-Terrain Double Stroller Wagon Review
I bought this stroller wagon to replace the traditional double stroller I had. Ideally, I just wanted a single stroller for my 9-month-old (River), but my 4-year-old (Indigo) wasn't having that! We do a lot of walking and Indigo gets tired and wants to sit. I dreaded taking my double stroller out in public. It was one where the seats were in front of each other, rather than side by side. It was way too long and hard to maneuver. I felt like I was pushing around a trailer!
Also, the double stroller was intended for up to 5 years of age, but my 4-year-old barely fit in it.
As soon as I saw the Evenflo stroller wagon, I knew it was the answer to our problem! There are a few different stroller wagons on the market. Evenflo is the least expensive, but it also had some of the best reviews. It's only sold at Target and the Evenflo website. My local Target didn't stock it so I bought it without even seeing it and hoped for the best.
Assembling the stroller wagon is a breeze. Just screw the handle in place, pop in the wheels and snap on the canopies, tray and storage basket. It took more time to unpack everything than it did to assemble!
What size children can it hold?
The stroller is made for one or two children 6 months up to 5 years old.
My Favorite Features
The all-terrain wheels- I live in a rural area and these wheels haven't failed me yet! This stroller wagon wheels easily over grass, dirt, and gravel (as long as it's not too deep). Occasionally there will be deep gravel or sand and I'll have to make my 4-year-old get out to lighten the load and make the wagon easier to pull.
Also, I should note that the wagon can be pushed like a stroller or pulled like a traditional wagon. I always push because I like to keep an eye on the kids.
Spacious- There's plenty of space for the 2 kids and there's even a mesh footwell at the bottom (see above pic). Best of all, it doesn't feel huge when you're pushing it around. There's way more space than my old double stroller, and this wagon is so much easier to steer.
Removable Storage Basket- this basket can be turned to the inside if you only have one child in the wagon. It's big enough to hold my large purse, water bottles and a lunchbox for the kids. There are also separate pockets on the sides of the wagon for additional bottles and a snack tray with cup holders.
UPF 50+ canopies- the canopies are large and are perfect for protecting the kids against the sun, wind or rain. It started raining while we were apple picking recently and I just popped open the canopies and both the boys stayed totally dry. Me, not so much...
Biggest "Pro"- the boys love this stroller wagon!!! Unlike our old stroller, the boys get to face each other and interact. They have a great time hanging out together in the wagon and it's adorable to watch!
Now for the cons...
This Evenflo Pivot Xplore All-Terrain Double Stroller Wagon Review wouldn't be complete without listing a few cons.
Opening/Closing- This stroller wagon is foldable and I have to struggle a bit to open it. To open you press down on buttons on either side and the wagon is supposed to slide and open. I think this may work better on the pavement. When I open the wagon on dirt or grass, it won't slide so I have to push the wheel forward with my foot (while holding the two buttons down). Folding the wagon is easy and takes seconds.
Even folded, this wagon takes up a lot of space. I have a large suv, so this isn't an issue but it might be if you have a small trunk.
3-Point Harness- The number one thing I would change is to make the 3 point harness (around the waist and between legs) a 5 point (includes shoulder straps). My 9-month-old fell asleep in the wagon and slumped so far forward he was almost in the footwell! For bigger kids, this wouldn't be an issue because the snack tray would prevent them from sinking forward. For infants, the addition of shoulder straps would be really helpful. Now, if I see River falling alseep I take him out of the wagon and hold him. Luckily, he doesn't mind sleeping in the baby carrier!
I hope you found this Evenflo Pivot Xplore All-Terrain Double Stroller Wagon Review helpful!
