Festival and garden fun with a Loubilou Toby Wagon giveaway

I’ve been to a couple of festivals (mostly as a day visitor), and have always been in awe of anyone with a wagon to pull around their gear, tent, food, child and more.  Ok, at first I was a bit blase because pulling a lump like N around a festival site would be quite a good workout, but the more I’ve seen them, the more I’ve thought they were a great idea.

As for the children themselves, I’m sure any child would love to take ownership and take over pulling one around the site – especially if N’s love of supermarket trolley’s is anything to go by.

So when Loubilou approached me to work with them, and in particular to offer a Toby Wagon as a competition prize on my blog, I jumped at the chance.  I’ve not told N because he’d be wanting me to fix it so we could win, but obviously I can’t enter!


If you’ve never seen one of these Toby Wagons you are missing a treat.  The one I have to give away is the All Terrain pull along Toby Wagon, one of the classic American style pull along carts that’ll never date, and well built to last a lifetime.

With air tyres it’s perfect for uneven ground, so if you’re not a festival lover, gardening, play or a trip to the park is suddenly more exciting.  I know N would use the wagon to pull around his soft toys, or for storage for his tractor toys, or even for helping me out with the gardening, and putting his tools inside.  My brother suggested using one for a planter, but I think a wagon should really be used for the correct usage, and not for plants to make the most out of it.


The prize that’s available is all steel, but with rounded corners, and comes ready and easy to assemble.  At 32 inch in length, and 13 inches wide, it’s plenty big enough to store what you’d need for a long weekend away with wooden sides to help keep the contents securely inside the cart.

Red in colour, it’s the perfect neutral colour for anyone to use.  Great for play as well as the practical use transporting items.  When my brother saw them, he mentioned they’d be great to use as a planter in the garden too.  I’m not sure I’d use one as that, but it would definitely be a great focal point in the garden.

If you want to win one, all you need to do is tell me in the comments, what you would use the wagon for should you win.

  1. Oh my son would probably try to transport his sister in this! Or the dog! He’d love to use it for transporting his toys 🙂

  2. I would let my son use it in the garden. He was would fill it with lots of things he finds (hopefully just toys!)

  3. My son would love this for transporting all his “stuff” (and most probably his sister too when I’m not looking!)

  4. My brother’s girlfriend has just had their first baby together. She already had 2 little boys. The boys are being great with baby Ariana. They know they need to keep putting their toys away and being tidy to keep room for Ariana’s stuff. They’d use it in the house to transport toys in and out of their room when they are using them and when they are finished with them.

    When the weather changes (it snowed a little last week) they’d mostly use it for taking items out into the garden.

    I haven’t begun to think about taking them on trips and using it…

  17. I think my youngest would love it for her toys, or we’d all use it for going to a nice spot for a picnic.

  18. It would be great for the children to take into the garden to pick up and store all the toys littering the lawn and for taking toys to the park.

  19. This has been on my son’s wish list for a while, so that he can help Daddy in the garden with stacking logs. Much bigger and better than his wheelbarrow!

  20. I would let me 3 and 5 year olds share this. my daughter has been desperate for one of these since she seen matilda have one in the film

  21. My grandson always want’s to help no matter what it is, so this would be brilliant now the summer is coming, he can pop all my veg plants in there out from the propagator and green house and transport them up my large garden to the veg patch, he will be in his oils (and me, no back ache) lol.

  22. I would give it to my grandson who would put his toys around in ,he would love it

  31. This lovely little red truck would be so perfect for my 6 year old boy and 2 year old little girl,as when we go to the beach they insist on bringing Dinosaurs,cars,and dollies and lots of spades and buckets etc,so would be ideal to pop them all in this,and sit my little girl Too!Thanks for your great blogs and lovely giveaways!!X

  32. To help the school Gardening Club to get our tools too and from the allotment which is half a mile away…

  35. Got a feeling my little dog would have some journeys in this, otherwise toys.

  36. I would keep it in my conservatory then I could wheel my sons toys outdoors on a nice sunny day x

  37. This would be amazing for my two young nieces!! They’ve just moved in long-term with my mum, as their parents can’t care for them any more. It’s a huge commitment on my mum’s part, and she’s been a total star, but there’s been so much to get done in order to make sure they settle in well and quickly.

    My mum loves gardening, and grows lots of organic fruit and veg in her gardens, as well as plenty of flowers. This Wagon would be an absolutely amazing gift for my nieces as it would give them a wonderful prop by which to claim their own sense of ownership over the garden – they could use it for wheeling their toys in and out (there’s a disabled ramp access to the house), and could even use it to “help” my mum with the garden by doing things like picking strawberries, plums, and other goodies and putting them in it.

    I really think a gift like this would be a great way to help them get settled and make my mum’s place really feel like their home. And she’s put in such a huge effort into committing to their futures that a gift for them like this would make her cry some really happy tears! 🙂

  38. I’d give it to my 3 year old little boy, and I’m sure he would use it every. Where from the garden to a trip to the local shops. This wagon looks so gorgeous he would love it so much

  43. Definitely the beach, With 3 children to navigate their safely plus all the bags to carry this would be just perfect.

  44. Lot’s of summer fetes and festivals coming up – this would be perfect for carting my son and all his toys around in….Thanks

  58. I think my son would put his soft toys in it and give them a ride around the garden.

  59. I’d use it in the garden and for taking the recycling boxes to the front of the house, I might let the grandchildren play with it when they visit!

  60. For use in thr garden, the children would enjoy taking their toys on a garden tour in the wagon.

  81. We have a very long garden, the grandkids would love to use this wagon to carry bits up and down the garden

  82. Oh my word… love, love, love!

    I’ve always wondered why these aren’t used over here like they seem to be in the US… I would definitely use it to cart Little Man around in. He’s a big boy and getting too heavy for the back carrier but we also don’t want to keep taking a pushchair out with us. As I don’t drive, we walk EVERYWHERE and then when daddy is home we also go for walks in the woods and along country tracks. This would be ideal for packing Little Man and his bag in… he could walk along and help us pull it for a while and then jump in when tired 🙂

  83. We love family picnics and open air theatre, this would be ideal for me as being disabled I am unable to carry heavy things, this wagon would be ideal for the hamper and even the folding chairs!

  86. my daughter said she would use it to help daddy when he needs tools to fix his car.

  87. I don’t have any children but would love to win this prize to donate to charity, to go to Romania.

  88. I have a bad back so I’d use this to get the shopping from the car into the house – perfect! No more lugging heavy bags of cat litter!

  89. I would give it to my youngest daughter who would no doubt use it to take all of her teddies on an adventure!

  90. I think my little one will use it to transport his teddies and superhero toys around the house/garden

  91. Fab for going to the park with all the bread for the ducks, drinks for the kids and always one is too tired to walk back home

  92. My son can put his toys in it and take them to his nannys, Would love to be considered x
