Veer wagon review. Is the price tag really worth it? We only want the best for our little ones, which includes purchasing the best products for our kids. Some of these items cost a pretty penny!

We’re stuck between making the choice of purchasing something for less, which very well may fall apart and not last us long at all. Or we spend the money on something that’s worth it. Something that’s of good quality, sturdy, and will last us for years to come. I don’t know about you, but I like to get as much use out of things as I can. So that means I may use something until the wheels fall off. Literally!

There are so many baby essentials we need and want for the first year, and then we move into toddlerhood and learn about all the other toddler essentials and gadgets we need and want. The Veer Cruiser wagon may be one you’ve been eyeing.

We were past our UppaBaby Vista, our Minu, annnd the balance bike. LOL. When our son had enough, he wanted to be carried. So naturally, it was time to search for a wagon. For months, I did so much research looking for a wagon to move on to. I landed on the Veer Cruiser and thought, this is the one!

In this Veer wagon review, I’ll give you the lowdown on the pros and cons of this fancy beast.

Veer Wagon Review

 Are Veer Wagons Worth It?

  • The high quality of the Veer wagon alone makes it one of the best wagons for kids. You will have it for years to come and even when your child has outgrown it, unlike a stroller, you will still be able to use it.
  • If you are a family, that’s on the go, the Veer Cruiser wagon has all-terrain wheels. Snow, sand, grass, gravel, you name it, it can ride on anything. We absolutely love that! The saying “run wild my child” we do just that. Our son plays hard and loves to get dirty. Having all-terrain wheels is ideal for us. It’s a fantastic travel wagon for kids.

We take a lot of trips to peach and apple orchards. Let me tell you, it’s quite nice to put our pickings in the wagon and our son when he’s tired of walking around the orchard.

My son also goes to hardware stores with my husband and loads up the wagon with supplies.

If all-terrain is not what you need, that’s something to consider.

There are a lot of different ways you can use it even when your child can’t fit in it anymore. For that, it’s worth it for us.

  • It’s a looker! Now, this may not matter to some, but if I’m spending this amount of money on a product, I want it to look good, too. One of my favorite baby products was the UppaBaby Vista. It’s stylish with a lot of colors to choose from.

The Veer is similar. It’s stylish, and you can customize it with the different color sidewalls.

  • The wagon is pretty comfortable. Our son doesn’t complain when he’s in this. He enjoys every ride, add some snacks to the snack tray, and he’s good to go.
  • It’s easy to stow. The Veer wagon folded makes it very easy to stow. All 4 sides are incredibly simple to let down. Once down, the handle lays flat.

You can slide it underneath an area to stow if needed, place it flat inside your vehicle or stand it up in a closet.

  • Easy assembly! If I’m being honest, there’s not a lot I put together myself. This one I can do. LOL

We all have different budgets and needs, so whether the Veer is worth it will be a personal choice.

Compared to the old school wagons where the handle is combined with the front wheel assembly and the handle turns the front wheels, the Veer wagon turns the entire wagon. This avoids the tipping of the wagon when there is weight placed inside.

This makes for a smooth turn and keeps the wagon from tipping over. The Veer Cruiser comes with a 3-point harness on each side and each seat holds up to 55 pounds and 45 inches.

Veer Wagon Accessories

The good thing about the Veer wagon accessories is that there is something for every stage of growth. There are the car seat adapters, the nap system, a foldable storage basket, and the canopy.

Then there is the toddler seat and travel bag.  

There are also seasonal wagon accessories such as the weather cover, visor, bug shield, shearling seat cover, or misty fan.

  1. Cost! The price of the Veer wagon is pretty steep. My biggest issue is what you get for the price. For the cost of this wagon, one would think you would get at a minimum of the canopy or the basket. Nope, those items are extra cost. What you get is the base, a snack tray, and 2 cup holders for the handle.
  2. Once you lower the handle to a different level while pushing it, it does not lock in place. This drives me bonkers. It doesn’t really matter if the handle doesn’t lock in place while pulling the wagon, but when pushing the wagon, you can’t keep it steady once lowered. But it locks in place in the upright position.

The Summary

To sum this Veer wagon review up, we absolutely love our purchase and don’t regret it one bit. While it’s pricey, it’s made of excellent quality and you just can’t go wrong there because, after all, you get what you pay for, right? It’s one of the best toddler wagons around.

It’s a multi-use wagon, so there’s so much you can do with it and use beyond the baby and toddler years.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where To Purchase The Veer Cruiser And Accessories

What age is Veer Wagon good for?

The Veer wagon is made for ages 0-5+ per the company.

While the Veer is a wagon for 2 kids and has the baby accessories you need, I think this is a better purchase for the toddler years when your child is more active and there’s less of a need for a stroller.

With that said, it’s nice to have something that accommodates both a baby and a toddler.

Can kids nap in the Veer wagon?

The little ones, the babies.

The nap system which is sold separately is for kids from birth to 20 pounds and/or 27 inches, whichever comes first or until they can push up on their hands and knees, according to Veer.

Can you push a Veer wagon?

It’s a stroller wagon hybrid, so it’s a pull and push wagon for kids.

Does Veer have a canopy?

There are different color canopies that are really easy to attach. Nordstrom has a variety of colors to choose from and Amazon has one.

Does the Veer Wagon fit in the trunk?

We have 3 cars. A compact, mid-size, and full-size SUV. The wagon fits in all 3 folded.
