Halloween Fun: Cruising Costumes

October 28, 2013
Neighborhoods everywhere are bursting with decorations in anticipation of Halloween.  I love to see doorsteps lit by the glow of carved pumpkins and shrubs beset with spider webs.  Soon sidewalks will be overtaken by pirates and princesses sprinting from house to house. 
Trick-or-treating can be hard work, and sometimes little pumpkins need help keeping up with their older siblings' frantic candy gathering.

Ninety-five years ago, our founder had a dream that a kid’s imagination would ‘take flight’ with a simple red wagon.  It’s such a great sentiment that has stood the test of time – and a desire we all share for our children.

Why does the world need Radio Flyer?  Really … come on – it’s just a toy.  Would people die if they didn’t have a wagon, or a tricycle?  Our products are not a necessity.  I was chatting with my neighbor a couple of nights ago, and guess what he does?

It got me thinking … am I making a meaningful enough contribution to this world?
