Maybe you could use a wire armature and wrap it with Rice Krispies Treats. I don't know how else you could get the d-shaped part of the handle. Or PVC pipe or a dowel, then wire for the D-shaped handle.

I did a radio flyer push wagon. I used cookiesfor the sides. the rail to connect them together, I did a hard popcorn ball recipe but used rice cereal. It held up excellent. I rolled it out then inserted in a chocolate tube to cover it. It was perfectly smooth and white. You could you dark chocolate for a pull along wagon and do the same.

I just goggled it there are so many versions which is the one you want? I would make the wheels out of cookies, for the handle to be safe why not use a covered wood dowel for that. As for the wagon part I'd drape some red gum paste on the back of a rectangle Pyrex pan looks like the same shape let this dry for at least a week (extreme humidity these days + the fact that air won't be getting to 1 side of it you'll need amply drying time) then flip it over Voila! red wagon place it on top of a black rectangle cake stick the wheels in place, you could make a stencil for the logo which you could apply in RI while the red gum paste is still on the Pyrex for support.
