"My youngest daughter received her Radio Flyer Wagon for Christmas when she was about 21 months. We would put her in the wagon and pull her around the yard singing "Jingle Bells". She enjoyed this very much and pretty soon she would climb in by herself, demanding "Tingo Way", her version of Jingle Bells. The name stuck and to this day, 24 years later, our much used Radio Flyer is known as Tingo Way. "

OUR SPECIAL WAGON my first radio flyer was when i was 5. i am now 62. my dad was stationed in turkey and he bought a radio flyer wagon to take me and my two brothers who were younger for walks. we came back to the states and went to my grandparent in alabama. my grandfather used that wagon to haul coal to heat the house. 12 years ago after my grandparents had both passed away, i drove from michigan to their house and there it was, our old radio flyer sitting under a carport full of coal! it was still in action after all those years. it was pretty rusty by then, but you could still see parts of our names he had written on it many years before
We use our little red wagon in a cemetery. We are on our second one now as our first one was stolen. When a family suffers a loss it is never easy, and especially when it is a child. We have found a small act of service can help a hurting and grieving family go along ways. During a service for a child in our cemetery we have provided a little red wagon. The parents are provided with an opportunity to pull their child one last time, from the hearse to the grave. It's never easy to watch, but often mother, and father cling heavy to this idea. The casket will remain in the wagon throughout the service and at the end pulled to the grave for burial. I know many will not find this idea cute, or photogenic, but others will find it comforting and subtle. On behalf of our families, we thank you for our little red wagon.
