  • I would bring a wagon....that way when he's not in it you can just put all the stuff you've brought and are going to buy in the zoo in it.....sounds like alot of fun...think I might invest in a wagon too lol

  • I talk my DD who is 22 months old to the zoo in a wagon all of the time. She hates her stroller and won't sit "tied down" in it very long. She will sit in her wagon and actually asks to get back in after getting out! A wagon def. works for us!

  • I like to take the stroller for no other reason but to carry our stuff! DD is 3 and will sit in it towards the end of the day or if it gets crowded and she get, well, less than cooperative.

  • I think a stroller is easier to push. With a wagon you have to keep changing hands to pull, and up and down hills can be harder. Also, unless you have a canopy for your wagon, the sun can be pretty bright at the zoo.

  • I would take the wagon since easier to get in and out of. Plus more storage for everything you might buy or need to talk along.

  • A WAGON!!!! We take a wagon and double stroller (4 kids - 5 years and younger). The wagon is great to put coats in, a snack, a cooler with your lunch, etc. And the kids can easily jump in whenever they want to!!

  • I'd take a stroller. Lots of zoos have some uphill walks, and it's easier to push than to pull.

  • I have a wagon and a stroller and I say stroller. that way DS can take a nap in it comfortably and it's easier to monuver in crowds.
