Little Red Stories
"My grandmother use to have a Radio Flyer wagon that my siblings and I played with when we were young. It would be the first thing we would look for when we got her house. We would take it up a hill close by and go down in it steering it with the black handle. Seeing the Radio Flyer wagon now brings back fond memories; when my grandparents and parents were together, my mother was cancer free, the family was closer, and my father was a good man. "
"The Estrella family has always wanted a Radioflyer wagon this past summer we were hoping to get one for the kids but I lost my job and money has been tight. We have a toddler and a 6 month old that would really enjoy it this coming summer but there's honestly no money to buy one. Radioflyer please make our wish come true and give the Estrellas a A cute little wagon... Sincerly, Jen"
"It was a hot summer morning in the end of June in 1967. It was to be my first day of day camp. I woke up crying telling my mother that I didn't want to go. She told me I had no choice but told me she would pull me down to the bus in my Radio Flyer wagon. She waited at the bus stop with me and my wagon in monsey ny. It became very important to me because I overcame my fears of not being with my mother. As it ended up 2 years later I began attending sleepaway camp as both a camper and later as a counselor until 1983. 30 years later some of my best friends are still my camp friends. Had my mother not pulled me down to the bus the first time in my Radio Flyer wagon I would not have had the opportunity to have built the relationships that have lasted a lifetime. I now have a grandson and will purchase a Radio Flyer wagon so I can pull him around Cape Cod for our June Vacation and build our own lifetime memories."
"Being a military family, we are always on the move. One day in 2008, driving from North Dakota to California we stopped in Spokane and found the the Radio Flyer Slide at Riverfront Park. My first daughter, who was two, spent an hour going up and down the slide and kept walking back to the wagon every chance she got. There were performances going on, a carousel, live music, water play areas, but we stayed at the Radio Flyer and slid down the handle over and over again. We ended up there for hours. It was an easy, joyful and relaxing day that reminded me of my childhood. Now, there are faster ways to get places, but we have stopped in Spokane now three times while driving cross country just to let the kids play on that wagon and every time it's a hit. "
