There are some kid-size wheelbarrows around, but their three-legged nature makes them tippy and, frankly, tempts some of the less-well-behaved little boys out there (are you listening, kids?) to use it as a battering ram. For my money, the red Radio Flyer Pathfinder is a kid-friendly way to load up tools, soil, or mulch and roll it where you need it. Wood-sided wagons are handsome, metal is sturdy, but plastic is hose-down friendly. Besides, this one has two flip-up seats to take the kiddies for a ride when the work's done.
