The Choo Choo Wagon!

Okay, finally I have time for a post on the incredibly cool Choo Choo Wagon! If any of you read the Murray Crew blog, then you've already seen it (Check them out at 4tunate in the right-hand sidebar!), and they inspired us to ask for one for Christmas! And happily, Daddy Bud and KayKay got it, and we LOVE it!

Because it's so big, they had it shipped to us, and we actually got it in November. But it was technically a Christmas present, so I hated to post about it before Christmas. But that didn't stop us from using it! It's really the greatest thing! Here it is:

What I love most about it is that each child has his/her own compartment. We've tried pulling them in one big wagon before, and it was just so crowded for them, and they were always pushing each other and crawling around. Now they each have their own space (with a seat belt to keep them contained!). And it pulls so easy! I can finally take the kids for a walk all by myself!

It also came in pretty handy the week before Thanksgiving when we had so much company. Andy loved riding in the Choo Choo too! Of course, this meant Reagan and Jonathan ended up sharing a seat, which kind of goes against my everyone-has-their-own-space happiness, it was the only way they could all ride. And we rode in it like crazy that week!







Here is Jim pulling the kids at the park that week. We love our Choo Choo Wagon so much! I'm so glad we were able to use it before the weather turend so very cold! In case you're interested, the basic Choo Choo is the first two cars (blue and green). The orange cars are add-ons, so the size is adjustable for larger or smaller groups of kids.

Very cute! What a neat idea to keep the kids content with their own "car". I bet they wore everyone out by requesting "pullers" so they could keep riding. Congrats on such a great "gift"!

I hope you don't think this is a strange request, but I have been searching for these for awhile.
