Finding the best pram and pushchair makes travelling much easier, but this is no small task if you have more than two children. This four-seater stroller is perfect for parents who have three or four tots. In this Wonderfold review, we tested the stroller for a month to see if it lived up to the online hype.

Designed for outdoor adventures, this pram has four raised five-point harness seats and ample storage spaces. The W4 Luxe Stroller Wagon even has a detachable UV sun canopy - take about a stroller doing it all. All-terrain prams and pushchairs like this are essential for off-road adventures because they have durable big tyres which can ride over different terrains.

Seats four children comfortably

The wagon has four removable seats that all have five-point harnesses. The harnesses are magnetic, making it easy to strap-in wriggling tots. Each side of the wagon seats two children, with space in the middle.

Design

This is a very eye-catching stroller. Not only because it has a very unique design compared to other strollers on the market but also because it looks sleek.

Testing the W4 Luxe Stroller Wagon

Mother&Baby product writer Hannah James tested the Wonderfold W4 Luxe Stroller Wagon for a month with her three children aged 18 months, three and five years old. The stroller was tested at the beach, parks, and supermarkets to see how it performed.

Setting up the wagon

When the wagon arrived, I was shocked at just how heavy it was. I feared that it would require a lot of tools and patience. But to my delight, once I opened the box and read the instructions, I was blown away at just how simple it was to install. Although, I would recommend doing this when you aren't in a hurry. The instructions were simple to follow and had useful illustrations for visual learners. Most of the elements can be simply clicked into place.

Usability

One of my favourite features is the sun canopy. When we initially took the W4 Luxe Stroller Wagon out, it was a very warm spring day. The sun canopy was great as it offered the children protection from the sun's UV rays and offered a shaded area for my youngest child to sleep. It drew a lot of attention with parents we saw commenting on how great it was.

My only criticism is the sun canopy was hard to lock into position and would move if the children pulled on it.

Performance

To say that this large wagon glides seems like a bit of an oxymoron, but it is true. It is ridiculously easy and enjoyable to push, even with three children in it. The handles can be raised or lowered for the parent's comfort. The large break peddle is both secure and easy to use.

All of my children could sit comfortably in the wagon with more than enough storage space for everything we needed for a day trip to the beach, including a picnic, buckets, towels, spades and a changing bag. This was a huge win for me as I am often left lugging bags as well as pushing the pram.

Price

Although I believe the price is justified, this is not a cheap option. The W4 Luxe Stroller Wagon is crafted to an impeccably high standard, and this is evident in every aspect of the pram from the design to the drive. If your budget allows, you won't regret buying this pram. It makes travelling with young children very easy, and if your family like to be outdoors a lot this is a great investment.

Final thoughts

I have wanted to try this pram since I found out I have three children under the age of six. I had previously seen it online. However, at the time, it was only available to the American market. So, when I had the chance to test it, I already had high expectations. I can say this wagon did not disappoint. Not only did it make a trip to the beach enjoyable, but it also made life much easier. Usually, with three young children, a trip to the beach is a headache. But everything we needed could be chucked in the stroller - including the children.

This wagon is stunning and I spent the whole day thanking people for their kind compliments.

The vast amount of storage went above my expectations. Most importantly, everything was still easy to access, even with all of the children in the stroller.

One thing I would change is the weight of the wagon. It is heavy, and this may put some people off. Similarly, it takes up a lot of space in the car. However, If you have a large family, you will likely have a large vehicle. The wagon fit in my Ford S-Max boot, and things could be piled on top of it as it lays relatively flat.

I would wholeheartedly recommend this to any parents who have three or more young children. It makes day trips all the more enjoyable.
