The Radio Flyer Wagon was so much a part of my life growing up. In the 1960's My mother would hold a talent show every summer with kids in the neighborhood to benefit the Jimmy Fund. We would use our wagon for refreshments and programs. She sent us to all the elderly complexes to get the elderly for the show. There would be about 30 kids and 50 elderly. We would sing and dance. I can't imagine how bad the show must have been but everyone had fun . We did this for about 10 years. The Radio Flyer wagon with us all the way.

It's hard to remember a time in my life when I haven't had a Radio Flyer wagon, beginning fifty years ago with my brother and I racing down the hill by our house, in the wagon he received from Santa. I remember my best friend and I delivering cookies, thirty years later my own daughter delivering cookies, all in a Radio Flyer red wagon. One of my favorite and most bittersweet memories is of my children placing their handicapped cousin and their dog in his red wagon and taking him for a ride around the neighborhood. My nephew became handicapped at the age of two after a horrible accident, as a result of his accident he is unable to see or walk. He was in the hospital for 5 months, we visited him almost daily, my children ate their meals at the hospital cafeteria and did their homework in the hospital play room. My own children were 5 and 9 at the time. Seeing the gentleness they displayed towards their cousin and wanting to include him in their play time was truly a heart touching moment that I will never forget.
