"My first (and only) memory of Radio Flyer is when I was 7 or 8 years old and a German family friend of ours had a Radio Flyer wagon. At that tender age, I did not know that it was a Radio Flyer until I grew up. They had 3 daughters (Nina, Elena and Dana) and we used to play a lot. Growing up in Manila, Philippines, Radio Flyers are not common to see way back more or less 30 years ago. But that memory of a shiny red wagon, playing with foreign friends (whom we lost contact when they went back to Germany) is something that one will always remember. We'd run around in their house dragging one after another. It is a fond memory that I will never forget. Sometimes they would come visit us at home and sometimes I would go there for a play date, and can't wait to ride that red shiny wagon! I've always wanted to have one, specially now that I have 2 wonderful boys, William, who'll be 3 years old in 2 months, and Brando, 7 years old. I've never bought them Radio Flyers as we can't find them here in South Africa. Having 1 or 2 Radio Flyers with my kids will surely be so much fun that I might just ride one myself! My husband and the kids made 2 home-made wagons, but we did not have the know-how of making one but the kids did had fun with them for like 2 weeks, it was great! Radio Flyer wannabe wagons. "
"Hi, Christmas 1951, I received a red Radio Flyer wagon from my Uncle Dave Wilkinson. I was eleven years old then. That was the year my father died. I kept it for over thirty years. It moved from Philadelphia to Cody, Wyoming and then to Florida. When I saw one for sale in a store I had to purchase it for our grandson, Austin.When Dad died in 1951, Mom sold the car. I used the wagon to transport the groceries home from the A&P store which was over a mile away. I also used the wagon to earn money by taking groceries home from the store for ladies that hired boys with wagons; as most people did not have cars. We had a Victory Garden on a vacant lot back then. I used the wagon to haul pails of water to the garden. I had a Germantown Courier newspaper route and later a Philadelphia Inquirer newspaper route. I remember using the wagon for delivering the Sunday papers. Once when I rebuilt the engine of my 1941 Ford, I used the wagon to transport the V 8 motor to our basement, where I put new pistons, rings, bearings a 3/4 race cam and aluminum heads on the motor. I used a tripod and chain hoist to remove and install the motor which weighed over 400 lbs. That was a tough wagon! When we moved to Cody, Wyoming the wagon went with us. We used it in gardening as we grew a lot of our vegetables. When we moved to Florida and Austin's mother, Faith, was his age, the older children used to pull her around in the wagon. Finally after years of service in Florida's humid wet climate I had to retire it."
