Little Red Stories
When my son was born he had a heart murmer.The doctor said it would most likely go away as he got older.When he turned one we found out it wasn't gonna get better and that it was gonna get worse until the point where he would have open heart surgery.When he turned 8 the condition (Artic Stenosis)had worsened to the point it became critical.He always wanted to play all sports and it was apperent that would probabally never happen.We came in contact with dr.Rosen and dr.MCCONNELL both from Children's hospital in columbus Ohio.They decided to try a new procedure called the Ross procedure.It was very sucessful and Nathanial came through everything like it never happened.While we were at the hospital we decided we were gonna go start a wagon run and raise money to buy new wagons for the hospital.They cost 500 dollars and so far we have raised enough for 7 wagons.With your help we can work together and make sure other children have a ride to and from office visits and to their rooms before sergury.Thank you from Nathanials wagons for a cause.
Wagons are great! Everyone needs one from children to elderly. They have so many different uses!
I bought first grandchild radio red flyer for his first Christmas. When he was big enough I would pull him in. We used to take long walks with it rather I walked and he rode in the wagon. I had it for years and wish I still had it.
Being raised poor; i cant remember much about the wagon my family had. But i remember bits & pieces of using a red flyer wagon. I remember us neighborhood kids using a wagon to haul bottles around; that we were collecting for the deposit money. We wanted to buy candy & sodas with the money we got. Then there were times we just road in a wagon. We had to take turns pulling each other. There were some steep hills to climb. But it was worth the wait for my turn. Seems as i got older; on emc situations i used a wagon to pull my clothes to the laundry matt, when i had no ride. I used a wagon when i could find one to haul my plants around to do gardening. Last, is the most value meaning in a vision i had once. I saw a wagon coming down through the mid air. The meaning of wagon is "Knowledge". Since then i have received much knowledge. I have even used a wagon to pull books! Every kid should have a wagon in their life time. Should i win; i would like them to be split up between every county hospital in the state of Fl., starting with my county. If not... I choose the Salvation Army.
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.
We teach our kids to share their gifts and toys with others. Before Christmas or after a birthday we get our radio flyer and fill it with toys to donate to our local Children’s hospital, park district, and school. My kids are 3 And 4 years old and they understand that sharing is caring. It’s so important to teach kids the joy of giving.
Er We fill up our red Radio Flyer wagon with home made food and distribute it to the homeless in downtown San Diego. They love to see our red wagon coming their way! Title: Fill the wagon with JOY!!!
When our garden overflowed with a bumper crop of veggies, our children would fill up their little red wagon and offer veggies to our neighbors.
When I was a single parent with 1 chId, I bought a radio flyer wagon for my daughter ‘s birthday. I didn’t have a car so I walked everywhere pulling my daughter in her wagon, Then a few years later I had another child and I pulled my 2 children in the wagon everywhere. I used my wagon for everything. By 1989, my sister had one child and I had my 3rd child, we used my wagon for everything from walking to the grocery store with my children, to going to the laundromat with the wagon piled high with clothes. My wagon was my automobile without a motor in the late 80’s to late 90’s. We wore out 3 of these wagons in the time we had them before I could afford to buy a vehicle. My father had bought a weapon to use to pull the kids, walk to the grocery store to buy food for my mother and hisself for so many, many years and I believe he went through 3 or 4 of them. I just wish I could afford a couple of these because my husband and ou have 20 grandchildren together (ours,his,and mine). Thank you Radio Flyer are great and long lasting.
"Look! One of her legs is shorter than the other!" exclaimed my grandfather in what would be the beginning of my spica cast journey to correct congenital hip dysplasia at 13 months of age. A few surgeries and a kid in a cast and traction bars didn't scare my mother as much as being home alone for days or weeks on end without the ability to go anywhere or see anyone. Thankfully she married an ingenious engineer who modified a radio flyer red wagon so that the sides extended out and I could go in, cast and all. We trekked everywhere in that red wagon, and now, 28 years later, family and friends can still recall how happy our family looked all together with me being toted around in our wagon.
Walking and carrying are not my forte anymore. Too many years and back surgeries for that, but I use it inside and out. I carry in my groceries, get my laundry from room to room, plants for trimming and feeding, tools for DIY( I'm an ol'widow lady,lol) generally for about everything, in fact its in the kitchen now waiting to be unloaded. .
When I was a kid we lived next door to a family that had a daughter my age with Down Syndrome.She would always be pulling her Red Radio Flyer while we were riding our bikes .She always wanted to stay up with us , but we could ride faster than she could pull her wagon. Her mother said she was having a hard time learning to ride a bike. Knowing how bad she wanted to be with us I went to our garage found a rope tied it to my bike and she never had to try to stay up with us ,she was right there with us and love going all over the little town we lived in .
Taking the trash to the dumpster one morni g we heard puppies crying. Someone had placed puppies on the dumpster. I stood guard while a friend went to get a 2x4 so we could make a ramp for the puppies. She took one and I took the other. Saving them from a horrific death. We had Run to 17 years. One day we came home from work and he could not walk. He was way too big to carry so we got the kids radio flyer wagon made a ramp and got him laying in it u til the vet could arrive after hours and allow him to cross the rainbow bridge with as little pain and discomfort as possible.

I'm one of three children my older sister was born with CP and Ms. I grew up in the seventies with my sister in a wheelchair all her life still in it when we were children we would put her in are little red Radio Flyer wagon and walk around for hours. I'll never forget the joy in her face as we drug her everywhere we went in a wagon. As a child it was awful hard to push a wheelchair in some of the places that we went and we could get that little wagon everywhere. My sister was able to fish for the first time in her life cuz we could put it in the wagon get her to the lake. My brother and I took her everywhere in that wagon you see she looked as normal as us without the wheelchair. No I'm not ashamed of my sister never have been never will be but other kids could be so mean. That little red metal wagon meant a lot to us. I'm sure it's somewhere in my mother shed. Oh we we're not rich but we sure felt like it. That wagon was a big part of our childhood. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to tell you my story. My sister is 57 years old now and is lived way past what she was expected to thank goodness. For the love of Mildred is pure and innocent.
