Generations of Enjoyment
As a child in a military family with four siblings, we moved annually for the first twelve years of my life and were limited on what toys we could take with us. We always chose our Radio Flyer wagon, tricycle and bike. Those toys lasted through all five of us and were still in great shape to hand down to other children when we outgrew them. As a parent, I continued the tradition of purchasing Radio Flyer products for my own children, including a rocking horse, wagon and tricycle. I held on to them for years, waiting for my grandchildren to arrive. My husband finally talked me into giving them to families we knew with small children, then, within the year, my daughter announced she was pregnant with our first grandchild. On his first birthday, we gave him a rocking horse. Next, we purchased a tricycle. When twins came a couple of years later, we purchased the large canopied wagon for them. Today, I assembled the rocking horse, Blaze, for our latest grandchild for her "big" Christmas present from her grandparents. As I assembled Blaze, I thought about how much joy your company has given my family throughout my entire life and I wanted to personally thank you for that. Your products are pure enjoyment for the children, solidly built, easy to assemble, last forever, and make us so happy! Thank you for being the wonderful company you are and maintaining the exceptional quality of your products. I will continue to be a fan for life and am sure my children and grandchildren will continue the tradition. You are AWESOME! Merry Christmas!

Before our wagon was stolen,we hope they needed it desperately. We used it for a variety of giving back from transporting foodbank food from our local pantry to the neighborhood home bound families EVERY WEEK for 2 years, to carrying sack lunches to those living under the bridges of Pierce county. It carried my toddlers across the Relay for Life finish line 5 years in a row AND carried the raffle baskets that raised a combined 4,000$ in those same years. It carried Christmas and Easter and Birthday presents to low income kiddos. AND helped create countless memories for my family.
"When I was a little girl, we were very poor and always had hand me downs of shoes/clothing/socks, the neighbors were always very kind and even gave my family food. I had the sweetest Kindergarten teacher, Mrs Filmore. We lived next door to a Mom/Dad and Little girl her name was Patty - she was about 6 years old - I was the youngest of 6 kids. I was 4 at the time. Patty got just about anything she asked for, and for her 7th birthday she got a beautiful Radio flyer Red Wagon, I was so excited to see her playing with it, and she came over to our yard one day and said can I put you in my wagon and take you for a ride, I said let me ask, so excited with joy I ran in the house - my Mom said yes, oh how I loved that ride, I felt so happy and excited. Whenever she was outside I would watch her and she had so much fun with her wagon, I said maybe someday we can get one too, we never did, however the memories have always put a smile on my face.
