Little Red Stories
Hello! My husband and I have a small family business called "Cobbled Folktales Artwork." Behind the scenes of our "shoppe," I create artwork and my husband creates the frames for all of it. Creating my artwork firstly involves handpicking a lot of pebbles and shells from the earth. We live in Indiana, where naturally formed pebbles and shells are hard to come by, so we look for far-away places to visit, adventure a little, and gather those elements for my art. We have two little boys, ages four and two, who love to hunt for rocks and things with their mom and dad, but whose legs also tire quickly! We knew we needed a wagon. We did our research and fell in love with the Build-a-Wagon option from Radio Flyer. And we LOVED building it together! Because regular, classic wagon wheels that come on most wagons off store shelves don't particularly mesh well with all types of landscapes (pebbly shores, sandy beaches, & shallow creed beds for example), we GREATLY appreciated the option for all-terrain tires. The padded seats with pockets, multiple cup holders, storage bag, twin canopies...(I can't even pick my favorite part!) all of these features made our pebble hunting excursions possible and a breeze for two out-going parents with little kids. Our Radio Flyer wagon recently made for one amazing and successful family trip to Ocean City, Maryland and Assateague Island, Maryland this fall, and we're looking forward to many, many more trips! Thank you so much, guys! Find us at facebook.com/cobbledfolktales or our website: cobbledfolktales.wixsite.com/shoppe

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.
Our first wooden radio flyer wagon is now approximately 40 years old. We just sanded it and repainted it today. We are giving it to our great grand daughter along with a new pink radio flyer three wheeler (big wheel) this Sunday, June 4th, 2017 for her sixth birthday. She will be SO excited!
