Everyone should have their 1st wagon
My dad would scour garage sales and flea markets for used, rusty, beat up Radio Flyer wagons. He would bring them all home and we would get started. You see we ran a preschool with many low income or single parent families. These families were struggling to make ends meet, let alone afford a wagon for their kids. So we started collecting old ones and bringing them back to life. Our "new" wagons were used for injured kids in casts, disabled dogs, and for bringing big smiles to lots of families. My dad and I bonded over the wagons, as did the families who got them!

"I grew up across the street from two sisters, one my age and one a few years younger. Their parents bought them a Little Red Flyer wagon, and I was always jealous. I couldn't wait to go play with them....and their wagon. Years later I now have two toddlers of my own and we just received a wagon from their Nana. Yes! Finally got me a Radio Flyer....well, um, er ....They got a Radio Flyer. First ride for both boys ended with tears as the oldest wanted to stay in the wagon and we had to pry him out of it. Not to worry boys, lots of rides in your future. Not to mention, when you are in bed, Mommy may take a ride or two. :)"
