My grandparents raised me and once they gave me a Radio Flyer wagon. It actually was for my grandmother and myself. You see she grew bachelor buttons by the thousands and sold them to a local florist. Since we didn't have a car she and I would take the flowers by "our" Radio Flyer to deliver them. This happened every Saturday morning for as long as the season lasted. I still have fond memories of delivering flowers. I later became a floral designer.

"I had a large Radio Flyer wagon with the wooden rails when I was 6 years old (1960). We kept it at my aunt and uncle's house in Camden, NJ because we were there a lot because my father was ill and stayed at Cooper Hospital (right around the corner). I used to empty their coal bin into my Radio Flyer wagon and when I would come up from the basement, they would send me right back down to put all the coal back into the bin. Once I did that they would have to give me a bath (because I was as black as the coal) which was my ultimate goal as they had a HUGE 4 foot high claw tub that I loved to swim in with my sister. I share this story all the time because I did this every time we would go to their house. "

The Radio Flyer Wagon was so much a part of my life growing up. In the 1960's My mother would hold a talent show every summer with kids in the neighborhood to benefit the Jimmy Fund. We would use our wagon for refreshments and programs. She sent us to all the elderly complexes to get the elderly for the show. There would be about 30 kids and 50 elderly. We would sing and dance. I can't imagine how bad the show must have been but everyone had fun . We did this for about 10 years. The Radio Flyer wagon with us all the way.
