Gammy & Granddaddy--another great memory!
When I think about Radio Flyer, I automatically think of my maternal grandparents, whom my three sisters and I called Gammy and Granddaddy. While my parents always had fun things at their own house, when we went to Gammy and Granddaddy's house (which was right next door and basically an extension of our own home), they always had the BEST toys, including a Radio Flyer wagon! We would take it up, down, right, left, and ALL over my grandparents' property! We LOVED it! I think Granddaddy may have even used it after we finished another favorite with them--FISHING in their pond! I think he used that to throw the slimy fish guts into after he cleaned our days' treasures, to get them ready for Gammy to cook up for us girls! <3 They were irreplaceable grandparents, and I'm glad I can think of THEM when I think of Radio Flyer!!!

"Being a military family, we are always on the move. One day in 2008, driving from North Dakota to California we stopped in Spokane and found the the Radio Flyer Slide at Riverfront Park. My first daughter, who was two, spent an hour going up and down the slide and kept walking back to the wagon every chance she got. There were performances going on, a carousel, live music, water play areas, but we stayed at the Radio Flyer and slid down the handle over and over again. We ended up there for hours. It was an easy, joyful and relaxing day that reminded me of my childhood. Now, there are faster ways to get places, but we have stopped in Spokane now three times while driving cross country just to let the kids play on that wagon and every time it's a hit. "
"I just wanted to share our Radio Flyer story, though it ended well, it isn't typical I hope. We took our two children, ages three and one, for a ride in their new Radio Flyer wagon. After carefully navigating my in-laws steep driveway I turned the wago over to my niece, who is eight. Unfortunately I underestimated the grade of the road and she tried to run off the start with the wagon. She lost control and the wagon careened several hundred feet before hitting a curb near a mailbox of a neighbor and landing upside down. Thankfully I was careful to belt the kids in correctly, and the UV sun shade actually took the brunt of the landing, leaving my children completely unharmed, though emotionally a little shaken. I am thankful this product is constructed in such a way that they were protected during this unfortunate incident. Thank you Radio Flyer for a quality product, and I will be contacting you soon for a few replacement parts ;) Jaimi "
