Interns travel by bus, bike, car, and train to get to our Chicago headquarters Monday through Friday. Every morning, they ride past the World’s Largest Wagon that stands proudly in front of Radio Flyer’s offices and are reminded that this company is much larger than just a “little red wagon.” We are a company dedicated to the larger goal of bringing smiles to kids of all ages and creating warm memories that last a lifetime.
