3 Classic Toy Rides Just Like Dad’s

Radio Flyer turns 100 years old this year!  With so many decades under our belt, we’ve been lucky to be a part of some families for multiple generations.  Check out some of the classic toys still in our product line that have been around since Dad was a kid:


1. Inchworm

This lovable friend has been around since the 1970s.  Bounce along in the ergonomic saddle for hours of active play.  The Inchworm’s friendly familiar face will create new warm memories in both yours and your child’s life.


2. Classic Dual Deck Tricycle

A retro paint job, chrome handlebars and fender, fun streamers and real ringing bell make this red tricycle just like the one you loved as a kid!  A sturdy steel frame and adjustable seat ensure this kids’ tricycle will be enjoyed by your child for years to come.  Available in red or pink!

3. Town & Country Wagon

Radio Flyer started producing this wagon for kids in 1966, and it has been an iconic red wagon in our product line ever since!  The classic all-wood body with removable side panels hasn’t changed much in the last 50 years – it may even be just like grandma or grandpa’s childhood wagon!


Bonus… Tesla Model S for Kids

The other toys on this list let you be just like dad when he was a kid. This ride lets you be just like dad right now!

While the Tesla Model S for Kids hasn’t been around for 50 years (yet), it is the only car for kids designed in close collaboration with Tesla’s design team.  This means every detail was carefully considered to create a car that looks and operates like the real thing more than any other kids’ car.

For the last 100 years, Radio Flyer has designed products that encourage active play and create warm memories to last a lifetime.  We feel fortunate to be a part of generations of American childhoods.  Here’s to the next 100 years of classic products and new innovation!
