Walmart Canada is brimming with deals for little ones wanting to play outside. This Little Tikes Explorer Wagon with Umbrella is on sale for just $99 with free shipping at Walmart Canada.
Walmart Canada does not give the original price, but it is much higher than the current sale price. I found the same explorer wagon and umbrella combo for $159.99 @ Amazon Canada. That is sold directly from them, not from a secondary seller. Elsewhere in Canada, this wagon and umbrella are hard to find. I ended up price comparing with several US stores to ensure this was a good deal.
Little Tikes (US) sells their own wagon and umbrella combo for $129.99 USD. I did find the wagon at BJs.com for $110.99 USD but that was the cheapest I could even find it in the USA. If you consider our current exchange rate, the price at Little Tikes itself is even a bit over the Amazon Canada price as it equals $162.19 CAN today.
This set is everything I dreamed of as a kid. My brother had a red wagon that I rode around whenever I had the chance, but I could never use it without him as it was hid (and he made sure I knew it). I prefer the plastic frame as it is cooler in hot weather (metal wagons get burning hot) and the sides are great for packing things, and kids, around in.
One reviewer said:
This is so wonderful for outdoor, park, picnics and beach. You can load your kids and a few bags and on your way you go. The umbrella is a huge bonus!
I have to agree, that umbrella is a very nice addition as it can shade your kids on a hot day and can also shade any goodies you may be carrying that are heat sensitive. Another reviewer said:
My 1 yr old liked this wagon very much and I like the fact that there’s shade. Roomy enough for 2!
There are some other really great deals for children during the Canada Day celebrations. This Little Tikes Outdoor Inflatables Slam ‘n’ Curve Slide is on sale for $298. A quick price comparison shows this upwards of $399 elsewhere. I prefer the Little Tikes Jump ‘n Slide Bouncer for $229. This is at least $20 cheaper than the sale price anywhere else.
