Little Red Stories
My Dad got me my first Radio Flyer from Western Auto store Heavy dutie Wagon with Thick wooden panels on the sides with the painted sides This wagon got used a lot on the farm in WVA I'm glad I got one when i was a kid this was about 55years ago Give your child one so they will have the memory's
Wagons used to give prizes to kids in need. Our non profit used Radio Flyers to pass out beanie babies and other prizes to kids, while explaining how to treat animals well. A win-win situation!
I remember using my little red wagon to transport my stuffed animals around when I was little.
We bought our oldest son which he is 26 a radio flyer wagon , the one with the wood on top of it when he was about 1. We always have pulled him in it while he was little everywhere we go like camping, fishing, and just around the house. When he got bigger he started pulling his puppies around in it and then he got him a 4-wheeler and he had pulled it behind it. So 10 years later when we had our other child he started pulling him around in it. Til one day I accidently back up over it. I hated that I done that but I just did not see it. I had found a smaller one without the wood on the land he had bought and now using it in pictures when I do family pictures. I also carried my props in one too to help me get it to the places I need alot of stuff at . So it has so many uses for us and if I was to win I would not just give it all to just one charity I would like to spread it out to a few of them like give most of them to the children's hospital for the children to be pulled around in at the hospitals and would love to give some to the animal rescue centers for abused animals to help them also. That would be helping two causes that means so much to me. The children and animals can not really speak for their selves so at least they can maybe have a little special help from me and ya..Thank you , Tina Atkins from Red Boiling Springs, Tn.
When my two sister's and I were young. We would fill our radio flyer up with pop bottles. We would pull our wagon about a mile to the candy store. Trade in our bottles. We would take turns pulling our radio flyer back home. Enjoying our candy too.
As a volunteer for the Welcome to America Project, we have donated dozens of Radio Flyer wagons to the children of refugee families who have relocated from war torn nations around the globe. These families have nothing but hope when they come to America the Radio Flyers always light up the faces of the little ones! Many have never seen a wagon but quickly find out how to have fun in the desert sun!
Loved my radio flyer wagon when we had it. The wheels got busted when we used the wagon as a wheelbarrow to replace all of the sod in our yard. We had to replace the sod because we had a chinch bug problem, so the wagon did us good. Now we have a beautiful yard that the children can play in! But we need a new wagon lol.
Manyyears ago when my daughter was in girl scouts, I was the leader and my husband needed the car for work and living a mile from the First Baptist Church in Fresno. I needed to get from home to the church with the craft supplies and materials. The only way to tote was our red flyer wagon. We also used in delivering Girl Scout cookies during cookie time.
When our son was small and could not walk but was not in a stroller the only thing that made him content was a ride in his radio flyer wagon. We would just walk and walk. We had a wagon that we could take with us in the car and it went everywhere!
Wagons are great! Everyone needs one from children to elderly. They have so many different uses!
When my daughter Jordan was five years old i had a beautiful section of garden with wonderful bright tulips. As you can imagine i was quite proud of them. well she went and picked them all and put them in her radio flyer bright red wagon and started down the street. i looked out the window and she was strolling up the neighbors driveway with one of my tulips in her hand. i went out and was ready to yell and i asked why she took all the tulips she said she was gonna make everyone happy by giving them a flower! i couldnt yell after that and i just tagged along watching all the smiles as she gave them their "stolen flower".
I used to have a flyer when I was young and lived in the city . I would put my hamster and my box turtle in the wagon pull them all over the block.
