I cannot look at a red Radio Flyer wagon without smiling !
Our son was diagnosed with brain cancer at age two. Between the tumor, and chemo he became immobile . One day he saw a red Radio Flyer wagon and wanted a ride. He became so happy when we gave him a ride at the children's hospital we were in. The wagon was the only place he wanted to be for a few months . Not only did this bring such joy to our son during treatment, but it also served many practical uses such as moving our belongings to one floor from another in the hospital, when we would get transferred, but it also helped up take our belongings to and from our vehicle with each hospital stay. Some people may look at a red wagon and think nothing of it , to me, it is a full of special memories , and this is why I cannot look at a red Radio Flyer wagon without smiling .

We got our oldest daughter a red wagon for her second birthday. We used it for our other two girls and the kids that lived around us. In 1989 we moved to Florida and the wagon came with us. We kept it in the attic untill our oldest daughter who received it at the age of two told us she was pregnant and expecting a boy.. my husband got the wagon down and took it apart and cleaned it up..He painted it blue and we gave it to her at the shower filled with things for the baby.. she still has and uses it four boys later. The boys are 8,6,4,and 22mtsold and they still love riding In it our daughter is now 32 years old. It has been and always will be a very special wagon in our family
