Little Red Stories
I hasv I have always loved RF wagons. I bought the miniature and the small-sized models at Sears over 20 years ago and I still have them. I worked for Sears at the time. I also bought the last Sears & Roebuck wooden-side wagon that our Sears store had in stock, back in 1999. It was a Christmas gift for my baby son, and we still have it. It looks just like a Radio Flyer wagon. Is it a RF-made wagon? My main reason for writing is that I went to an estate sale 2 years ago and bought a RF Model 7 wagon, still sealed in the box. The seller said it was in his dad's local store in the stockroom for all those years. He said it was circa 1950's, but I think it was manufactured in the 1960's. Either way, a great find sealed in the box.
My Dad got me my first Radio Flyer from Western Auto store Heavy dutie Wagon with Thick wooden panels on the sides with the painted sides This wagon got used a lot on the farm in WVA I'm glad I got one when i was a kid this was about 55years ago Give your child one so they will have the memory's
When my two sister's and I were young. We would fill our radio flyer up with pop bottles. We would pull our wagon about a mile to the candy store. Trade in our bottles. We would take turns pulling our radio flyer back home. Enjoying our candy too.
I remember the old wagon we had as kids.My brother was older than I and that wagon toted food to sick neighbors clean clothes to elderly and anything else we had to haul around.Mom and Dad had a plan and we were the delivery so that old wagon served many folks in 1956.
Manyyears ago when my daughter was in girl scouts, I was the leader and my husband needed the car for work and living a mile from the First Baptist Church in Fresno. I needed to get from home to the church with the craft supplies and materials. The only way to tote was our red flyer wagon. We also used in delivering Girl Scout cookies during cookie time.
When my son was born he had a heart murmer.The doctor said it would most likely go away as he got older.When he turned one we found out it wasn't gonna get better and that it was gonna get worse until the point where he would have open heart surgery.When he turned 8 the condition (Artic Stenosis)had worsened to the point it became critical.He always wanted to play all sports and it was apperent that would probabally never happen.We came in contact with dr.Rosen and dr.MCCONNELL both from Children's hospital in columbus Ohio.They decided to try a new procedure called the Ross procedure.It was very sucessful and Nathanial came through everything like it never happened.While we were at the hospital we decided we were gonna go start a wagon run and raise money to buy new wagons for the hospital.They cost 500 dollars and so far we have raised enough for 7 wagons.With your help we can work together and make sure other children have a ride to and from office visits and to their rooms before sergury.Thank you from Nathanials wagons for a cause.
Wagons are great! Everyone needs one from children to elderly. They have so many different uses!
I bought first grandchild radio red flyer for his first Christmas. When he was big enough I would pull him in. We used to take long walks with it rather I walked and he rode in the wagon. I had it for years and wish I still had it.
Being raised poor; i cant remember much about the wagon my family had. But i remember bits & pieces of using a red flyer wagon. I remember us neighborhood kids using a wagon to haul bottles around; that we were collecting for the deposit money. We wanted to buy candy & sodas with the money we got. Then there were times we just road in a wagon. We had to take turns pulling each other. There were some steep hills to climb. But it was worth the wait for my turn. Seems as i got older; on emc situations i used a wagon to pull my clothes to the laundry matt, when i had no ride. I used a wagon when i could find one to haul my plants around to do gardening. Last, is the most value meaning in a vision i had once. I saw a wagon coming down through the mid air. The meaning of wagon is "Knowledge". Since then i have received much knowledge. I have even used a wagon to pull books! Every kid should have a wagon in their life time. Should i win; i would like them to be split up between every county hospital in the state of Fl., starting with my county. If not... I choose the Salvation Army.
