Little Red Stories
It has been a family tradition that grandparents buy a Radio Flyer for a new grandchild. This has been going on for 5 generations. I received one from my grandpa, my children received a tricycle from my dad (grandpa), I gave all 5 of my grandkids all a Radio Flyer wagon and tricycle, my daughter has followed the tradition with her grandson with a tricycle. This has been a Christmas tradition with our family. A great way to welcome a new grandchild.
Saturday Nature Walks We bought our grandson the radio flyer tricycle that has the handle and canopy. He is three now, and he loves his "red bike" as he calls it. We babysit him every Saturday at his home, and the first thing he says is "I want to go on a bike ride". So he hops on the bike and off we go. A long the way we stop and he collects wild flowers in the spring and summer, and leaves, acorns, and pine cones in the fall. He stores them in the little compartment on the back of the bike, carefully arranging each item. I wish you could see the smile on his face when he is riding his little "red bike". He will also tell you that red is his FAVORITE color. He also has a radio flyer wagon which he loves, and some days when we have time and the weather is nice, we bring the bike back home and exchange it for the wagon. It has two seats so he takes turns sitting in each seat to get the best view. His bike and wagon bring him many enjoyable "nature walks" as we like to call them. We think he may be a botanist some day.
As a child in a military family with four siblings, we moved annually for the first twelve years of my life and were limited on what toys we could take with us. We always chose our Radio Flyer wagon, tricycle and bike. Those toys lasted through all five of us and were still in great shape to hand down to other children when we outgrew them. As a parent, I continued the tradition of purchasing Radio Flyer products for my own children, including a rocking horse, wagon and tricycle. I held on to them for years, waiting for my grandchildren to arrive. My husband finally talked me into giving them to families we knew with small children, then, within the year, my daughter announced she was pregnant with our first grandchild. On his first birthday, we gave him a rocking horse. Next, we purchased a tricycle. When twins came a couple of years later, we purchased the large canopied wagon for them. Today, I assembled the rocking horse, Blaze, for our latest grandchild for her "big" Christmas present from her grandparents. As I assembled Blaze, I thought about how much joy your company has given my family throughout my entire life and I wanted to personally thank you for that. Your products are pure enjoyment for the children, solidly built, easy to assemble, last forever, and make us so happy! Thank you for being the wonderful company you are and maintaining the exceptional quality of your products. I will continue to be a fan for life and am sure my children and grandchildren will continue the tradition. You are AWESOME! Merry Christmas!
