The Step2 Ohio State Buckeyes’ wagon is just what a couple of former Buckeyes are looking for to transport some younger fans. Tyler Whaley — who played offensive line and fullback from 2003-07 including a start in the 2007 national title game — has his daughter, Emme, on boared while Marcus Williams — a special teams phenom from 2006-09 — has his nephew Zane ready to ride. The wagon is great for transporting younger fans during tailgating before games and offers various features such as two cup holders, an under-seat storage compartment and even safety belts to keep the youngsters from exiting the wagon prematurely.

The kids’ wagon is a product of Step2 and provides Ohio State fans and their young children a product that they can use in the local neighborhood, at the beach or while tailgating around Ohio Stadium.

The scarlet and gray wagon is made in Ohio and features the official OSU logo on the entry door and comfortable tailgate seating for two mini Buckeye enthusiasts.

“Since Step2 is headquartered in Ohio, a lot of us here are huge Buckeye fans,” said Jerry McDermott, chief marketing officer, Step2 Holdings.

“We wanted to combine our joy of making top quality children’s toys with our Buckeye pride. We knew the wagon for two would be perfect for little Buckeye fans in training.”

Perfect for carrying children’s snacks during tailgating, the wagon features two drink holders and under-seat storage. The wagon also has two molded-in seats for comfort and two seat belts.

“Every family needs a wagon. The OSU wagon lets you and your kids show your school spirit on neighborhood walks, out in the yard and of course on game days. And it’s built to last so it’s a great investment,” said McDermott.

When tailgating is over, the wagon has an easy-latch door so kids can climb out effortlessly. Parents will love the extra long handle that folds under neatly for easy pack-up and transport in the car.

The OSU Wagon for Two is available at www.Step2.com for $79.99.
