Little Red Stories
"I grew up on a farm and was accustomed to playing outside with my three brothers. We all love trains, and my childhood industriousness led to a unique experience in which a Radio Flyer wagon played the role of a railroad car. We took an old wooden playhouse and restyled it as a depot. Then I took metal fence posts and nailed them to boards at such a width that they would serve as rails on which the wagon would roll. We had tons of fun riding the wagon down the makeshift track between the depot and the other stop 25 feet down the line. The playhouse and tracks have since been retired, but I still remember vividly the Niola and Garnettville RR and its trusty Radio Flyer locomotive."
"This story is about my youngest daughter Samantha. When she was about 2 (she is now 21) we moved into a new house. One day I couldn't find her. We looked everywhere, in her room, her sister's room, in the basement, out in the backyard. We called her name and called, nothing. Now I am starting to panic!!! I went out the front door and around the side of the house by the neighbours and low and behold there she was!!! She had gotten her Radio Flyer wagon, a pillow and a blanket, pulled it into the driveway and took a nap!!!!! YES, she was sleeping in the wagon!!!! I was so relieved to find her. I didn't know whether to grab her and hug her or scold her for scaring the crap out of me!!! Before I woke her up I took a picture of her sleeping in her wagon. Now her girls have the wagon to nap in!"
"My Radio Flyer story is quite new. For the last several months every time my husband comes home from work (he works overseas on a month off a month) our youngest son has to go to the Co-Op the very next morning. They go and make their purchases and then he tells his Dad and the clerk he needs to go check on "his" tricycle. He knows right where it is and hops on ringing the bell. This Classic Red Dual Deck Tricycle has become his greatest Christmas wish. Oops they went last Friday and "his" tricycle was gone. We expected a complete meltdown, however, what we got surprised us. He announced Santa must have come and got it for him already and ever since he tells everyone Santa went and got his tricycle to bring him for Christmas. Boy I hope Santa makes good on this big wish."
