When I think about Radio Flyer, I automatically think of my maternal grandparents, whom my three sisters and I called Gammy and Granddaddy. While my parents always had fun things at their own house, when we went to Gammy and Granddaddy's house (which was right next door and basically an extension of our own home), they always had the BEST toys, including a Radio Flyer wagon! We would take it up, down, right, left, and ALL over my grandparents' property! We LOVED it! I think Granddaddy may have even used it after we finished another favorite with them--FISHING in their pond! I think he used that to throw the slimy fish guts into after he cleaned our days' treasures, to get them ready for Gammy to cook up for us girls!
"My son, Brian, loved his Radio Flyer wagon, which was given to him by his grandparents in 1984. He was only a year old at the time. We lived in Abington, MA and later moved to Pembroke, MA, where he had plenty of room to pull the wagon. He used it almost daily growing up. He went to the Naval Academy and then served in the Navy, including in Afghanistan. He is now married and having his first child. I decided that the best gift I could give him for his new daughter was his beloved wagon. My brother refinished it and we gave it to him as a shower gift. He was even more excited to receive it than even I imagined. I have to admit that I miss the wagon, because after Brian outgrew it, I used it for my gardening and antique shopping. I plan to get Radio Flyer wagons for my other grandchildred, and hope they will enjoy them as much as Brian."
