In the movie, the Princess Bride there’s a quote that goes “True love is the greatest thing in the world.” But they obviously didn’t have a Burleigh Wagon, otherwise, they would have rewritten the script. It was true love when Social Mama Community founder, Elisha Fiorentino got her Burleigh Wagon and it was the type of love worthy of a Hollywood movie. So let’s take a closer look at why the Burleigh Wagon is a must for every mum, especially for those who enjoy time at the beach.
If you live in the coastal regions of Australia, you are spoilt for spectacular beaches. That being said, the Burleigh Wagon is essential for any trip to the beach, whether you’re a mum or not.

What is a Burleigh Wagon?
Joy on wheels! Think of it as the ultimate picnic hamper on wheels with an inbuilt Esky to keep your food and drinks icy cold. There’s a snack track and drinks holder, so you don’t have to precariously balance your can or cup in the sand or on your lap. Inside is a Bluetooth speaker with two USB ports so you can take the party tunes with you.
If you are a surfing mum, it doubles as a surfboard holder. Who wants to carry their longboard under their arm when you can tow it in style? It’s pet-friendly and kid-friendly. It actually meets stroller standards, so once you’ve eaten all the food—if you have little ones—who are getting tired, they are able to sit the wagon and be towed back to the car. No more “My legs are tired! Carry me!” But wait, that’s not all…you can use it as a picnic table or a beach seat.
It can be turned into a bed for a newborn (Put on soothing lullabies piped through the speaker and the crash of the surf will soon send bubs off to sleep). If you need to change a nappy, you can use it as a clean surface to do that (although, make sure you’ve eaten first!)
The wheels are designed for all-terrains and there’s an umbrella you can purchase as an optional extra to protect your little humans, drinks or food from harmful UV rays. There’s even a USB fan you can purchase as an optional extra if it’s a scorcher of a day.
The Burleigh Wagon meets the mandatory consumer product safety standards for a stroller based on the Australian/New Zealand Standards 2088: Pram and Stroller safety requirements. So rest assured it’s safe for your babies and toddlers.
Elisha’s husband was thrilled when he discovered the load capacity of the Burleigh Wagon is 150kg, which means after a beach outing, he can tow Elisha and bubs back to the car. “It seats two children with seatbelts, but I’m sure Leo can easily be propped up on my knee,” Elisha said.
Whether you’re going to the beach or bush, the Burleigh Wagon is going to be right beside you for all your family adventures.
It comes ‘mostly’ assembled, you just need to add the wheels and handle which Elisha was able to do without any problems at all. It fits in the boot of most SUVs without any hassles. The Burleigh Wagon has practically become a member of the Fiorentino family and it goes everywhere with them. Not just for beach trips, they even use it to transport snacks and drinks to the pool.
