Our story begins in the late 1970s when my son George was about five years old. I believe it was Stokley can goods who had a special offer, if you save 100 labels and send them in, you would receive a Radio Flyer Wagon! I remember having all the family members, grandma and aunts saving labels so we could get this red wagon, which we did after about a month or two of saving. My son was so excited when it arrived. He would have me take him to the park, grocery store and everywhere in his radio flyer. After about five years my father helped him repaint his wagon. My dad worked at the Cadillac dealer ship in Oak Park. One of his customers was Mario Pason and my father was telling him about his grandson and the repainting of his radio flyer wagon. He mention to him that he needed to find new hubcaps to remount the wheels. Lucky for us he was so kind to get them. We still have the wagon today which was also enjoyed by my grandson. So many special memories in this Radio Flyer Wagon!

"On my 1st birthday I got a Radio Flyer wagon! This thing went everywhere with my family to the cottage, camping, schools, and parks. I was so in love with it and so were all my Teddys and dolls. But one night when my family and I were camping it was stolen, along with a lot of my families other things. I was 5. My parents thought it did not need to be replaced because I was older now and could walk places. I was devastated. I now have a 9 month old and we plan on not only getting him a radio flyer wagon but also the tricycle. I am so excited to see his face light up, I think I will be more excited and have great memories fly back to me when I go and buy it."
