Wohoo, the Choo Choo Wagon is back!

****Update, October 2009****
Thank you for your interest in the Choo Choo Wagon and Trailer. We made our last production run on the Choo Choo Wagon and Trailer in 2008, and our inventory was depleted in early 2009. The tooling for these products is over ten years old. The molds are outdated and must be rebuilt. We are working on this, but it will take quite some time before we are able to begin production with new tooling.

We realize that the Choo Choo Wagon is particularly popular among parents of multiples, and we are eager to continue offering a wagon specifically designed with their needs in mind. We will be happy to notify you when this product becomes available again in the future. Please let us know if you would like to be on the waiting list.
*****************************

****Update, February 2009****
Production on the Choo Choo Wagon has once again been suspended. We thank you for your solid support during the last two years it was available, and hope to bring it back again someday!
*****************************

You’ve been asking for it, and we’ve been listening. I’m proud to announce today that the Choo Choo Wagon is making a comeback. We’ve started preselling it here, and the orders are pouring in!

Choo Choo Wagon

If you’ve never heard of the Choo Choo Wagon, it’s an expandable wagon that starts with two cars and can accept up to three additional trailers! This means you can easily haul twins, triplets, or more, and still have room for their “stuff”. Even better, the ride is a lot more peaceful with each one in their own private car.

This wagon will be available while supplies last only from Step2.com.

Enjoy!

-Andy

    It’s about time to get the choo choo wagon back! I own and run a triplet parent group called Parents Of Triplets Club and there have been moms on there who have had to go to eBay to get these and pay up to $500! These are like gold and should not be limited but put on continual sale, especially with the boom of multiples in this world. There is no other wagon that can compare for triplets! Thanks for bringing it back and please KEEP IT IN STOCK!

    As long as there’s healthy demand we’ll keep making these wagons, but if demand drops off we might discontinue them again. So buy them while they’re available, and let others know about this wagon if you think they’d be interested.

    Thank you for bringing the choo choo wagon back! I have been calling and looking for one for months. I have one year old twins and a two year old son and will get great use out of it. There are so many multiples and so few options for getting them all around.

    I am so happy to see that these are being given a second chance! I am also so happy that they are now including the necessary seatbelts with it (safety should not be extra or optional). I LOVE my choo choo as do my triplets. I take it everywhere and I am constantly asked where to get one. I am happy to be able to send them here rather than the overpriced ebay! The only way to make this wagon better is to put a motor on it…ha ha ha! I am now telling everyone to go online and get them before they sell out! How long is the shipping taking on these? Can the green tag along be attached to it? Just wondering because it would be nice for extra storage.

    THANK YOU STEP 2 for an awesome product!

    I am very interested in the Choo Choo Wagon but haven’t read in any of the descriptions anywhere that it is equipped with seatbelts. I would love to know if it actually is.

    That’s a great question–we had originally only run a few hundred of these trailers, and we sold them all out. At this time, we’re unsure if we’ll be making more, but you should know within a month or so: if we’re going to keep making them, they’ll become available again, and if not, they’ll disappear from our website.

    Please don’t discontinue the Choo Choo Trailers. They are so popular and in demand. I know quite a few triplet families that LOVE them and are waiting for them to be available.

    I just saw the choo choo wagon and trailer the other day and wanted to order it having 4 kids under 4, but they said they are not going to produce them anymore. I searched all over online and it seems like there are a lot of people who want this item, why discontinue it??? Makes no sense, bad decision on someone’s part.

    “Anonymous”,

    Unfortunately, the demand of a couple dozen people (vocal as they may be) isn’t enough to justify manufacturing and offering any given product. This item has been discontinued before, and was brought back when it was felt that demand was sufficient–I am sincerely sorry for all those who “missed” the opportunity to purchase this wagon during it’s second availability, but we are hopeful that it may be resurrected again soon.

    Why is it that no store in Ottawa sell the CHoo Choo Wagon.
    I run a home daycare and I think that alot of Daycares would invest in your product,
    Thanks Lisa

    Lisa,

    We’re sorry that you can’t get that item locally, but the truth is that it’s not available locally in the US either. Because this item is popular only for a small niche market, retail stores are hesitant to make it.

    We had enough requests from parents and childcare providers to resurrect this item after it had been previously discontinued, but demand is low enough that we only manufacture small batches periodically and only sell them via the web. Sadly, at the present time this excludes our international customers.

    If you’re really determined to get a Choo Choo Wagon, you can either have a friend or relative from the US receive the item for you (if applicable), or find a local “Mom & Pop”-type store that sells Step2 products and ask if they could include a Choo Choo Wagon for you on their next order.

    Regards,

    Andy

    Kitty,

    This item is currently being produced periodically in small batches. As long as demand continues it should be available at Step2.com, though there may be occasional periods during which it is unavailable as we await a new production run. While we cannot guarantee future availability, we do understand the current marketplace need, and will continue to produce the Choo Choo Wagon as long as it remains logistically prudent.

    Hi .. thanks for the response Andy, being in Canada however I am unable to order from Step.com so I am wondering if any retailers here will be carrying it aside from Toys r us.. as they seem to be out of stock or severely back ordered right now.

    Mini Circuit here sells it, but they claim a shortage of product… it’s a bit confusing!

    Reply

    Kitty,

    In order for us to be able to profitably sell this item, we must wait until we can justify manufacturing a large batch of them at once. This means that there are periodic back orders that will occur, even at Step2.com. Unfortunately, the best advice I can give you is to contact Toys R Us or Mini Circuit and make sure you put your name on the backorder list. Otherwise, if you know someone in the USA who would receive this item for you in the US, you could order from Step2.com.

    This is crazy! I know so many other moms who want it too and were waiting for their tax refund or for their kids to be born to buy it. Please, please consider bringing it back!

    Maybe you should consider taking pre-orders so your potential customers can prove that they really do want it.

    This is so sad to hear! Every time I take my boys out in their Choo Choo I get asked where I bought it and where they can find one. In the last week alone I’d been asked no less than 10 times. How sad to now have to tell people they can’t get one unless they find one used!

    So Sad. I saw the Choo Choo Wagon around Christmas time. It was always in the back of my head that I wanted it for my triplets, which were not born yet at that time. Now they are too young to use it this summer, but I know I will want one as soon as it becomes available.

    I know why the demand wasn’t great enough to continue producing the choo choo wagon….the marketing! I have 21 month old twins and a 4 month old baby. I had never heard of or seen the choo choo wagon until stumbling across it on ebay earlier this month. Why wasn’t it advertised better? I absolutely want to buy one, preferably with 2 extra trailers. PLEASE bring it back before the summer! You are losing SOOOOO much money to the people who are taking advantage of the situation and selling their used ones for $300-$500!!!! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!!! Raising multiples is hard enough, don’t take away a tool that would help make life a little easier!

    I am having my fourth child in August and she’ll be 14 months younger than my son. I also have a very small 6 y/o and lots of stuff to bring along on outings. I would really like to see this brougth back into production!!! People are making a fortune off this with a resale value being anywhere from $550.00 – $850.00. This is a shame in this economy that the public is getting ripped off by others because your company stopped production. BE SMART AND START MAKING THIS AGAIN!!!!

    Aww! This is certainly a bummer. I have 6 month old quadruplets and planned to get one of these for their first birthday. BUMMER! Hey, as long as production is haulted, what do you say you go back to the drawing board and add an optional sun canopy to the cars. Just a thought.

    I’m so glad we bought our choo choo wagon last year. We’ve been using it almost every nice day since our 16 month old quadruplets were about 7 months old (we would prop them with boppys or bumbos to keep them upright). I would say, without hesitation, that the Choo Choo is the BEST multiples product we’ve purchased since the babies were born! And that beats out ALOT of other products.

    EVERYONE asks where we bought it and how they can get one, and I always referred them to the Step2 website. It’s a shame they’re halting production…is it just a ploy to increase demand? I guess I can be comforted to know resell value will be excellent.

    I’m with jag….maybe the manufacturers should go back the the drawing board before bringing it back. I’d love to be on a customer feedback panel for it’s redesign! Canopies would be nice, but so would different color options for the trailers. And underseat storage in EACH of the trailers.

    I hope that they decide to bring it back soon. It has saved our family’s sanity….seriously.

    Moni,

    Unfortunately, the reason is not as simple as holding off to increase demand. I can’t really go into detail, but some considerable financial investment would have to go into bringing this item back into production, and therefore requires some very strong sales projections. Feel free to send letters to the address I recently posted, or use our help site to submit a request that we bring it back, as feedback from the public is a good indicator of demand.

    Ramona and others,

    Comments are still pouring in on this post, and I find myself repeating the same information, so I'm going to summarize here and stop publishing comments on this post:

    * The Choo Choo Wagon is not currently in production, and not available for sale. There is a link in the post above to be put on a list to be notified if it becomes available.

    * Step2 will bring this item back if/when it is feasible to do so. We understand your desire to own this item, and suggest you sign up at the link in the post above if you want it to resume production more quickly.

    * We have stopped posting comments from those wanting to buy or sell this wagon secondhand. If you would like to buy or sell a Choo Choo Wagon secondhand, please explore other alternatives such as garage/yard sales, newspaper classified ads, Craigslist, eBay, etc.

    Thanks again for your support for this wagon!

    I would like to purchase the choo choo with 3 cars attached. I would like to see a removable canopy added, storage in each car (like the purple one), love the cupholders, a locking door like on the coupe would be wonderful, the middle car to be an add on just like the orange car would make it easier to buy two choo choo’s second hand and make it into one long wagon. I like that the wagon does not have any stickers that get ruined and fall off. Simple is best. I keep trying to get on the waiting list, but the website says my email is already in use, but when I try to get a new password it says it cant find one.
