Grasshopper Convertible Sled / Wagon

Grasshopper Convertible Sled / Wagon
Reviewed by

This unique wagon converts from a pull sled to a wagon and back. The Grasshopper is perfect for one or two children, with an innovative design and a hand-carved willow seat with a comfortable, tilted back rest, and side rails for holding on. The deck is made of 5/8-inch thick birch planks, joined together in a durable tongue-and-groove joint. Your child is always facing forward, so they can fully enjoy the ride.

And, kids love knowing they can get in and out of the wagon (or sled) on their own. A marine-grade finish protects the wood of the wagon, and all screws and bolts are made of stainless steel for durability. The rugged steel undercarriage is powder-coated, and the solid rubber tires need no maintenance. A padded collar on the bottom of the handle prevents pinching at the front of the wagon. For sledding, the Grasshopper comes with a custom-molded plastic skid that provides a slippery but stable surface. The skid can be easily removed and replaced with wagon wheels.

The Grasshopper wagon meets all USC, ASTM and CE child safety standards. Assembly is easy; the Grasshopper comes fully assembled as a sled. Converting it to a wagon takes five minutes, and involves removing the screws that attach the plastic skid to the bottom, then attaching the 7 bolts that connect the undercarriage to the wooden top, plus the bolt that attaches the extra-long handle.
