Little Red Story: Ready to Roll!

April 17, 2015

Our March Little Red Stories winner shared how her youngest daughter, Evie, received a Radio Flyer scooter for her birthday in February, but couldn’t take it for a spin because of the snow hiding the sidewalks. Once the ice melted away, she headed outside to enjoy her new ride and didn’t let the bitter winter hold her back.

What was once a special prize at a local Wales Kiwanis Club Easter Egg Hunt nearly 25 years ago will again be a treasured reward—as the gift of a Radio Flyer Town & Country Wagon comes full circle.   Some lucky family will receive the wagon at this year’s contest, thanks to our Little Red Story Winner for January:  David M.

Halloween Fun: Cruising Costumes

October 28, 2013
Neighborhoods everywhere are bursting with decorations in anticipation of Halloween.  I love to see doorsteps lit by the glow of carved pumpkins and shrubs beset with spider webs.  Soon sidewalks will be overtaken by pirates and princesses sprinting from house to house. 
 
Trick-or-treating can be hard work, and sometimes little pumpkins need help keeping up with their older siblings' frantic candy gathering.
 

KID CRAFTS: FLYERS ON PARADE

June 28, 2013

Parades are a key ingredient of American summers. As a kid, I loved decorating my parade bike. I happily spent whole mornings agonizing over the best proportions of stars to stripes.  Halfway through covering my bike in crepe paper, I always wished my bike was red, white or blue. That would be such an easier starting point! 

Game Time: Birthday Games

February 11, 2013

At so many birthday parties we expect a gaggle of kids to wait patiently while a birthday girl opens gifts or the birthday boy blows out candles. All that waiting can be tough for kids who NEED to move, and they will squirm, wiggle and bounce if you want them to or not!

Happy Friday! 

As you get ready to kick off the weekend, we wanted to share a photo to inspire you to go outside and play!  We'll feature a different user-submitted photo each week.

This week's Flyer Friday feature comes from Emily A. in Tupelo, Mississippi.  Emily had a little help from her 2-1/2 year old daughter while visiting a pumpkin patch in her hometown at the end of October. Thanks for sharing your photo Emily! 

Did anyone else have a chance to enjoy a family trip to a pumpkin patch this fall?  

Birthday Bash: Isabelle turns 4!

November 19, 2012

Kid's birthday parties are a chance to celebrate one special child at one special moment in their life. There are some standard ingredients: invitations, party treats, fun activities, and gaggles of friends. Each element is infinitely customizable to age, hobbies and family tradition. Choosing a theme based on a child's interests (or obsessions?) is a way to cherish who they are at that exact age.

At the Pumpkin Patch

Recently my family and I were at a pumpkin farm searching for the perfect pumpkins.  Throughout our visit I loved watching families collect pumpkins, capture pictures, eat cider donuts and race down the slide coming off “Tire Mountain.” And we came across the best display of Radio Flyer wagons I have ever seen.

A New Way to Play: Groovin' to the Music

When I was a kid, I remember playing music from a radio out of the garage.  I would crank up my favorite songs and act out an entire musical performance on my bicycle while riding in circles in the driveway.
