Choo Choo Wagon
Today the choo choo wagon by Step2 went on sale. It had been out of production for quite some time.
This wagon is awesome and so popular with the Moms of Triplets & Quads. & Twin Moms too! :)
I bought one for my Twins! I plan to use it for certain playdates and when they finally decide they will not ride in a stroller anymore.. I will have my next solution to managing twins on the go!! I wanted to be darn sure I bought one before they went out of production again. Those things are a hot item and were selling on ebay for $400 or so. They even still have them on ebay for around that price...even though they are now back into production..in a slightly new format....and today they went back on the Step2 website for sale.
I did purchase the extra cart. So we will have that 3rd cart for items we need to take with us or a friends child. Depending on the situation. :)
I felt so terrible today for a facebook friend who is a Triplet Mom. She really wanted a 4th trailer cart for her choo choo wagon. She owns one of the choo choo wagons that are no longer in production. She was thrilled to see them coming back and going on sale. So when she went to the Step2 website this morning, the site was updated to state that the new choo choo wagon is NOT compatible with the old one. Meaning, the extra carts won't fit onto her choo choo wagon.
Terrible HUH!! Give a Triplet Mommy a break already!!! She just wanted a way to put all the stuff she has to carry with her into a cart to make it easier on her. She totally deserves it too!!!
The Original Choo Choo Wagon
I FOUND A SOLUTION!! On accident even!! I am so so very excited to report that the Step2 Tag-Along Trailer Plus Now, just some background info. The Tag Along Trailer Plus is the trailer cart that was made for/with The Step2 Wagon for Two Plus.
OK so How did I find out that the Tag Along Trailer fits on the original Choo Choo Wagon?? Well, like I said on accident and through some googling. I came across a blog that showed the choo choo wagon with the Tag Along Trailer attached to it. At first I did not think it was attached but after seeing more pics I saw that it clearly was attached!! This made me excited!! I knew I had found a solution for my facebook Friend!!
