Every new parent has to figure out the best way to get around town with their little one. Some parents use carriers, others a stroller, and some may just cradle their baby in their arms. But, have you ever thought about a wagon? Enter Keenz Stroller Wagon. The Korean brand is showcasing its recently launched stroller wagon at the New York Baby Show. The stroller wagon effortlessly combines all the capabilities that parents love about a stroller and a wagon into one ingenious product. That means you can travel with your kid and have enough space for larger items. And if you’re wondering if it’s safe, the answer is yes. The stroller wagon passed the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association’s rigorous child safety testing to get certified.
Keenz Stroller Wagon will be at the New York Baby Show on May 20 and 21, at Pier 94.
The nation’s biggest show for expectant and new families, the New York Baby Show is a wonderful family-friendly mega-event featuring everything to do with maternity, baby, and toddler. From top products to trusted parenting experts, the New York Baby Show welcomes thousands of expectant and new parents from New York City, the Tri-State area, and beyond!
Tickets to the New York Baby Show are $30 per family, and $20 per individual.
We spoke with a member of the Keenz Stroller Wagon team, Shannon Adams, National Sales Manager, to learn more about the brand and what new parents can expect at the New York Baby Show.
For someone unfamiliar with the culture of Keenz Stroller Wagon, how would you describe the company’s mission and core offerings?
Keenz Stroller Wagon has set itself apart within the stroller market as a product that has the best characteristics of a stroller with the utility function of a wagon. We have built a product that safely transports children with a five-point harness that keeps them secure when they are clipped in. The stroller wagon also has storage for all the “stuff” that a parent has to bring along when they are out and about. Our mission is to offer the best option for parents, grandparents, nannies, and child care professionals to move children safely while still being able, with ease, to carry all the items that need to accompany them out on the road. Keenz is one of only 18 companies in the stroller category that holds a JPMA certification, which is a highly sought after safety designation.
Tell us about the company’s background. When did it start and how has it evolved since then?
Keenz Stroller Wagon started in Korea several years ago and made its debut in the U.S. just last year. When we first started Keenz U.S., our initial challenge was to take a very successful Korean product and make it suitable for the U.S. market. That meant we had to obtain certification for our product as a stroller. Along with making adjustments to the harness system, we made several upgrades to the existing product. We made it lighter, more compact, and added spring suspension to all four wheels. After making these changes, we submitted our product for testing to the JPMA for certification so that we could sell to any retailer that requires that in-depth testing for safety measures. I’m happy to say that we obtained JPMA certification as a stroller in late December 2016 and in February 2017 launched the Keenz 7S Premium Stroller Wagon for the U.S. market.
Good question! We just launched the 7S Premium Stroller Wagon as our initial product. However, we have various accessories that are available for the 7s such as a rain cover, matching cooler, and clamp on cup holders. Later this year, we will be introducing mosquito netting, a wind cover, and a Beach Wheel set that increases the versatility of the 7s.
What sets Keenz Stroller Wagon apart in the baby marketplace?

What can parents expect from Keenz Stroller Wagon at the New York Baby Show?
At the show, attendees will have an opportunity to see a cutting edge stroller wagon that is just being launched in the U.S. They will have an opportunity to buy the wagon for themselves, or if they are a retailer for their store. They will also have an opportunity to break the stroller wagon down and reassemble it. This will give any user the ability to experience just how easy the Keenz Stroller Wagon is to use.
