"I bought a large Radio Flyer wagon for my own children years ago. They are all in their twenties now. I had the one with the wooden sides. I used the heck out of that thing. We used it for every parade for Mardi Gras. We decorated it for school and used it in all the school parades. We used it to carry babies, children, coolers, picnic food--you name it. We delivered Girl Scout cookies in it. Sometimes we needed to take the wooden sides off, but we could put them back on again. My children used to play in the yard that it was a pretend bed or emergency vehicle. Sadly, when packing up for Hurricane Katrina, I had to leave it behind, and I really didn't want to. There was no more room for the Radio Flyer (and the Tonka trucks). Our cars couldn't hold any more stuff; a lot got left behind. I didn't know we would get 10 to 11 feet of water for 2 weeks, moving my house off its foundation. But we are all ok now (I live 90 feet above sea level today.). Bought this one for my darling little granddaughter. Hope we have lots of fun with it for many years.

"When I was a little girl, we were very poor and always had hand me downs of shoes/clothing/socks, the neighbors were always very kind and even gave my family food. I had the sweetest Kindergarten teacher, Mrs Filmore. We lived next door to a Mom/Dad and Little girl her name was Patty - she was about 6 years old - I was the youngest of 6 kids. I was 4 at the time. Patty got just about anything she asked for, and for her 7th birthday she got a beautiful Radio flyer Red Wagon, I was so excited to see her playing with it, and she came over to our yard one day and said can I put you in my wagon and take you for a ride, I said let me ask, so excited with joy I ran in the house - my Mom said yes, oh how I loved that ride, I felt so happy and excited. Whenever she was outside I would watch her and she had so much fun with her wagon, I said maybe someday we can get one too, we never did, however the memories have always put a smile on my face.
