West Coast Wagons Theoretically Not Just For Celebrity Gifting Anymore


At first I was too blown away by the website's name--My Wholesale Baby--to worry that the authentic ammunition boxes add 15 pounds to West Coast Wagons' custom camo rig.

Then I was whipsawed by the sales pitch:

From hand painted designs, to aluminum wheels & DVD players, parents can't wait to pull their prize possessions around town in their pimped out theme wagons.



Who owns a West Coast Wagon? Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie, Johnny Depp, Melissa Joan Hart, Gwen Stefani, Leah Remini, Courteney Cox & David Arquette, Gwyneth Paltrow, Tom Cruise & Katie Holmes, Angie Harmon, Adam Sandler, Diane Farr, Angela Bassett, Christian Bale, Brooke Shields, Heidi Klum & Seal, Jennifer Garner & Ben Affleck, Carnie Wilson, Holly Robinson Peete, Jason Priestly, Louie Lombardi, Neal McDonough, and Donald Trump.

Whether they pull them around the yard, through the park, or on the beach, the new celebrity stroller is a WAGON!

West Coast Wagons began as an alternative to the stroller for a little girl who was born disabled.

OK, then. Takes all my comments off the table. Forgive me, People Magazine for I have sinned. I have thought critical thoughts about the excessive gifting of $800 Radio Flyers to famous strangers in my heart. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go look up who Holly Robinson Peete is.

Celeb Kids Dream Rides by West Coast Wagons, $395-795, 100% discount for SAG, DGA []
Aha! Holly Robinson Peete and Diane Farr co-starred in Like Family (2003-4) [imdb]


At first I was positive that Holly Robinson was on "The Head of the Class" but I was oh so wrong. Turns out the first time I caught glimpse of her was likely on 21 Jump St with Mr. Depp.

WCW's got a LOT to learn about flame-jobs.

I'm a bit bummed to read this (since I don't read 'People' or watch ET).
I was getting prepped to turn my 30+ yr old wagon into a sweet ride for the Teufelskind. It was going to need paint anyway, so I was going to go all 'low-rider' and give it a sweet, hand cut, flame-job, some nice Von Dutch inspired striping, and wire wheels...

Now that I know Mr. Tom 'nuthatch' Cruise has one, I don't know if I'm interested :P

Hello there! I was just told about your website and wanted to touch base with you. I am the owner of West Coast Wagons and would love to clear up some misinformation. When we first started the company, we did gift a select few wagons to celebrities, however, we became quite popular very quickly and no longer gifted products to get our name out there. I am sorry you were mislead to believe that we "gifted $800 wagons." That was never the case. The average cost of a wagon is $295-$395, and I would love to offer a $25.00 discount to anyone who mentions your website, if you are interested. I hope that clears things up a bit. Have a great day!
