    Wagon Canopy
    Rating:4 out of 5 stars
    This canopy is a cute addition for the wagon, but I agree with the other comments the frame is fragile. I think if the children applied very much pressure to the frame it will break, also our grandchildren were intrigued by the clamps that hold the canopy on the wagon and wanted to play with them. When you begin to play with the clamps, it loosens canopy’s hold on the wagon and allows it to flap in the wind.

    The canopy works well and adds a very unique look for the wagon. If you are looking for a cute addition, this is IT!

    Grandson’s favorite toy
    Rating:5 out of 5 stars
    Bought this for Christmas for my 2 year old grandson. There is room for at least 2 kids in the nicely molded seats and it even has cup holders and small seat belts. It’s his main ride to the park and has room for his cousins and friends. His mom said it was easy to put together. Would definitely recommend this wagon to anyone child who needs an awesome ride.

    Slightly frustrating
    Rating:3 out of 5 stars
    I bought a Radio Flyer 2900 wagon, without a canopy. They do not offer the wagons with canopies where I live, so I was ecstatic when I saw Radio Flyer made a one size fits all variant. Long story short, it doesn’t fit all. It doesn’t even really fit my 2900. I have to position the clips at specific angles to get the canopy on, and even that is a bit of a challenge. And I’ve not taken my kids out around the neighborhood yet without at least one leg of the canopy coming loose.

    The 2900 has angled sides where the outside of the sides is not parallel with the inside sides. This prevent the canopy from acquiring and maintaining a steady grip. If your wagon has sides that are uniformly less than 1.5″ thick at the corners facing outboard then you should be fine.

    Radio Flyer Wagon
    Rating:5 out of 5 stars
    My 12 month old is about to receive this for her birthday. Because of the sheer size of it, I’ve built it, but it is sitting in the living room. She’s already played with it a little and loves it. I strapped her in and pulled her around. After I finished taking her on a ride, she wanted to try, so I put her doll in it, so she could pull her doll. We will have a great time with this when warmer weather draws near.

    Provides Needed Cover.
    Rating:5 out of 5 stars
    We recently bought a Radio Flyer All-Terrain Wood and Steel Wagon for our 16-month-old boy. He’s a little young, but he loves riding around in it. I expect that it’s a toy that will get good use for many years.

    My wife insisted on getting a canopy to go with the wagon. Our boy is fair skinned and she wants it as protection from the intense Southern California sun. I agreed that it was appropriate. The canopy actually arrived before the wagon, although the wagon was ordered first.

    It was real simple to put together and will fit all Radio Flyer Wagons whether it’s steel or a combination of steel and wood, such as ours. The canopy fits on the wagon with four simple-to-use clamps. As soon as we got the wagon and canopy ready to roll we put the boy in it and rolled out the door. Well, wouldn’t you know it, rain was falling. The canopy provided good cover for the little guy. It was a very nice walk!

    Great Canopy
    Rating:5 out of 5 stars
    This canopy is great! It is high enough that my son can sit underneath it and it keeps the sun out of his eyes without obstructing his view. It is easily removable and storage of it is not a problem. Some people have mentioned that the clips that hold the canopy onto the wagon break and I can see how that could happen, but ours has been great so far. We love it!

    It’s ok, difficult to store when not using
    Rating:3 out of 5 stars
    This Canopy works well when you are using it, but I don’t like that you have to break it down completely to store. It is very bulky and I find I don’t use it very often due to the fact that I have to put it together and take it apart everytime.

    Great for keeping the sun off our little one. We’ve been using it for a month now and we haven’t had any problems with durability. A great complement to our Radio Flyer Pathfinder wagon! Would definitely recommend.

    Great idea but poor quality
    Rating:2 out of 5 stars
    Unfortunately, we’re on our third one since we purchased the first one 18 months ago. The clamps are very fragile and will literally come apart in your hands without even a discernible “snap” after about 6 months. The nylon fabric itself is easily worn through if you accidentally rub the canopy on say, a fence, as you are passing. We have always stored our wagon with the canopy set up in our garden shed or inside under our stairs, so it’s not that it’s been left outside in the elements apart from when we are using it, nor have the clamps been repeatedly opened and closed.

    However, it fits the wagon perfectly , is collapsible (if that matters to you) and provides excellent shelter in all the weather we have encountered during our daily walks to school in England. So we have reluctantly ordered another one. I just wish it was as durable as the wagon it is designed for. :-(

    Rating:5 out of 5 stars
    This wagon is great! The perfect gift for my one year old nephew. Got it a couple of weeks ago. We’ll see how it holds up over time but he loves it and I expect to get many years of enjoyment out of it. Fairly easy to put together. Love the back rests and the safety straps were an important safety feature for me.

    Canopy Review
    Rating:4 out of 5 stars
    The Overall quality of the canopy is good. I do no see a “fun” factor or “educational” value to be rated. As for durability, I have no complaints. The product does seem to need stretched inwards to fit to the wagon I own, which is also a Radio Flyer. It does fit as advertised “Fits all Radio Flyer Wagons”, but I felt like I was stretching the metal “tent-posts” inwards too much, and was afraid that one would snap. Perhaps they are more durable than I thought, But it seems like the second I unclip one of the alligator clamp devices, it springs outwards.

    The Canopy does indeed make a HUGE shelter over the wagon, and it does block the sun. My only thought is that it sits too “high”. I have enough trouble picking up my 18 month old child and getting him into the wagon with it on. It’s not that it’s hard, but you do have to make an effort to not clothes-line your child in the process. If the canopy sat any lower, I don’t know if it would be very easy at all do perform the same task, but, it would block more of that harmful sunlight from getting to the little passenger inside.

    To completely summarize, it is a quality canopy to cover any Radio Flyer wagon, and it does the job. Become comfortable taking it on and off, and know where you are going to put it when it comes off. If not stored properly, it takes up some space! If you leave it on the wagon, you will find yourself pained when trying to get around it if you don’t stash it in a garage. If you do stash it in a garage, you will want to take it off anyways, because of the space and to prevent damage.

    I am pleased with this product, and when it comes to wagons and other child toys, Radio Flyer is definitely a reliable source, and offer TONS of different accessories for all sorts of things.

    This canopy is AWESOME!!!! It takes about 15 seconds to clip on your wagon and it’s a must here in Arizona. Every time I go to the park or zoo I have it on the wagon and people are always commenting that they wish that they had one. This is a great product and worth every penny spent.

    We bought the Radio Flyer Pathfinder Wagon for our son for his first birthday. It was the best buy ever! The price was the best around and the wagon itself is absolutely great! I got the canopy to go along with it and I highly reccomend it also.

    Radio Flyer Wagon Canopy Feedback
    Rating:4 out of 5 stars
    Good canopy. Although, it would be better of the canopy had more sturdy mounting hardware rather than the four clamps that came with the canopy. The canopy tends to shift back and forth if it is tugged on with minimal force. Otherwise, the canopy serves it’s purpose. Offers good sunlight protection.

    Love the idea. Not much shade, and clamp snapped off
    Rating:3 out of 5 stars
    This is really great idea. However, as soon as we installed it, a cross bar snapped in half. Then a couple of weeks later one of the clamps snapped off. We are trying to find replacement parts with no luck so far.

    The canopy doesn’t provide shade unless the sun is directly above. Radio Flyer could have used a wider design that curved over to provide shad as sun rises and sets. Would not purchase again.

    canopy for wagon
    Rating:4 out of 5 stars
    The canopy works well at shielding the sun and keeps light sprinkles at bay.

    It takes up a lot of space while not in use and is cumbersome to put on and take

    off of the wagon.

    Radio Flyer Wagon Canopy
    Rating:4 out of 5 stars
    This thing is a pain in the butt to take on and off. It’s sort of like putting a kite together and clipping it to your wagon using car battery clips… every single time you want to use it! It’s too big to leave on in our SUV, so I have to take it off and on every time I bring it somewhere.

    Having said that, this thing is totally freakin’ worth the pain! It keeps my two girls in the shade and it looks cool. We took it with us when we walked in a 4th of july parade and got lots of compliments. Highly recommend.

    Radio Flyer Wagon Canopy is a must have
    Rating:4 out of 5 stars
    I found this canopy easy to install and it is adequate protection from the sun. I agree with other reviews that it could be challenging to get the canopy back in the bag. However, I have not tried to put it away. I do plan on keeping the canopy on the wagon at all times.

    Rating:3 out of 5 stars
    I like the amount of shade it provides for my 2 little ones. However, it is VERY hard to get it stored up into the very small storage bag, and one of the slips that the “backbone” slips into, ripped the day I got it. So, I have to tape the end shut so that the brace stays put.

    Great all around wagon cover
    Rating:5 out of 5 stars
    I was a little unsure when I ordered this, based on some of the reviews I had read, but my family LOVES this wagon cover! We have the Step 2 two-seater wagon and this cover fits great! We get tons of compliments every time we are out! The amount of sun protection varies based on how low/high the sun is sitting, but you are able to adjust the cover a little bit to help. We have had no problems with it breaking like some people mentioned, and we use our wagon daily. I would recommend it!!

    Great Addition to a great wagon
    Rating:5 out of 5 stars
    We purchased this canopy to go with our Radio Flyer wagon and we have nothing but great things to say about it. the canopy is large and covers the entire span of the wagon. It clips onto the sides of the wagon so for the tool challenged, it is great. I love the fact that you can lean the canopy forward or backwards depending on the direction of the sun. My girls love it and think they are riding in a chariot.

    This is one of the greatest things invented!! I have the Radio Flyer ATW wagon and this works great with it. It provides a lot of shade, is easily removable, and collapses compactly when not in use. Definitely worth the money.

    Serves Purpose But EXTREMELY FRAGILE
    Rating:3 out of 5 stars
    This is now back on our wishlist, because we cannot afford to replace it. That’s right–replace it. It works well, but be very careful that your children do not attempt to apply pressure of any kind to the frame, and as soon as you are done using it, pack it up and stow it away properly.

    The clamps break off easily. We lost two of them in 4 months of use, and had to trash the canopy.

    The good: when not broken, it does provide shade and shelter to riders. We got a couple good trips to the zoo out of it, one in sun, and one in light rain (daddy doesn’t mind getting wet, and the animals are much more active in the cool, so this was particularly useful).

    We have used this for a few trips down to the park and zoo for our 6 mo old and 2 year old. It does a great job at keeping the mid-day sun off both kids. It was a bit awkward installing it at first but with two sets of hands we have gotten used to it now. Folds up flat for storage.

    Tough to install, but pretty cute!
    Rating:4 out of 5 stars
    We bought this canopy to top off our 16-month-old’s Radio Flyer, hoping to shade him from the sun on walks. Turns out, this doesn’t block all that much sun, because it’s very open on the sides, but at least that’s good for airflow and visibility! Had some difficulty installing this at first — not much give in the fabric. We thought that it must be backwards or something, but ultimately it went on and has been sturdy since. This is a nice addition to the wagon — stylish and moderately helpful in blocking the sun at mid-day. Just don’t count on this to provide too much shade!
