The cooler temps and stunning natural views of autumn have many families spending more time outdoors, participating in seasonal activities and even taking vacations to check out the fall foliage. Stroller wagons, modular strollers and other modes of transportation for your little ones can simplify your journeys.
Well-known manufacturers of baby safety and transportation products offer several options for littles of every size, age and stage. From versatile stroller wagons to adaptable modular strollers, comparing your needs with the available features (think large storage baskets and cupholders as well as easy folding and upgrade options) can help you choose the ideal option for trick-or-treating, corn maze wayfinding or leaf-peeping.
Graco Modes Adventure Stroller Wagon ($449.99)
This stroller wagon is unique, as you can rotate the handle to push it like a stroller or pull it as a wagon. The all-terrain rubber tires with suspension let you use it at the playground or the beach — or go almost anywhere. There are also cup holders and zippered pockets for storage.
These Graco stroller wagons have earned 4.7 stars out of 5 on Amazon. Customers who reviewed the stroller wagons say it is convenient to push or pull them and they fold up easily. They also like comfortable seats and canopies.
“We are reaching the stage where the stroller is not something he wants to ride in anymore, and thankfully this wagon has saved the day,” wrote one reviewer, who also shared pictures of the stroller wagon showing the adjustable canopy. “I like that it can function as a stroller (to be pushed) and a wagon (to be pulled). I also like the generous canopy that blocks the sun on both sides. My 3 year old said this is comfortable. It was easy to put together and I assembled in under 10 minutes.”
The Graco Modes Adventure Stroller Wagon, $449.99, is compact and collapsible for convenience but also provides seats for two children. Each seat holds up to 50 pounds. An added benefit of these stroller wagons is that they are compatible with any Graco infant car seat with an adapter.

“This stroller wagon is the best purchase I’ve ever made,” wrote reviewer Tricia. “My 6 yr old has autism and is getting way too big for a stroller. It fits through all doors, very easy to push, easy set up and fold down. My toughest issue is trying to get him out of it, he wants to bring inside and use inside the house too! He loves it. He is about 54 lbs and fits in the seatbelts. He prefers to lay on the bottom and hide under the seats. So much room in this. Lots of leg room, he has long legs and has no issues. This has been a life changer for us. We can now go anywhere without him getting upset.”
