I’m over two years late on the draw here, but I still need to give my beloved Swagger Wagon a shout-out. When Toyota first started rolling out the commercials featuring the very hip Sienna Family, I giggled out loud. The mother especially is just so spot-on with her incredible coolness. Obviously, guys check her out like crazy and of course, ladies the world over are so jealous of the extreme savvy with which she rocks the minivan scene.
I think the commercials are great (if you’ve got time to blow, troll around the different ads on YouTube a little–they are a hoot), but when they originally aired, I was in my one-child, not-yet-drooling-over-minivans glory. I didn’t fully grasp the transformative power a slammin’ mivivan could have on my life. Two years further and the addition of another child into this parenting journey, I am loving on my Swagger Wagon. As circumstances provided, we did actually end up with a Toyota Sienna, which makes the use of this term a little more official for me, but I think anyone with a minivan can claim a Swagger Wagon–and the attitude that goes along with it.
Let The Cool roll loose…
I have no idea how we ever left the house with only the space provided in our Honda Civic. Somehow we seem to use every inch of van space on a daily basis, and I’m not entirely sure how the dog had room to breathe when we packed him up amidst all the crap on our recent trip to the beach. Poor poochie. In any case, the Swagger Wagon is a blessing, and I’m so proud to be cruising around suburbia in my wheels 😉
