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!

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.
My Little Red Wagon is the title of the bedtime story I made up for my daughter. A true story about my daughter and I building a flower garden in your little red wagon. That bedtime story was my last English assignment 10 years ago when I graduated Business Administration after struggling a 3 year learning curve with my learning disability of reading and writing starting with a grade 5 education. That story stuck in my heart until I reread it and decided to publish it Oct 2014. Since receiving my first copy my passion grew deeper for literacy and learning. April 1, 2016 I launched My Little Red Wagon Garden Kit. Seen on my website littleredwagongardenkit.com. or my face book @mylittleredwagonfundraiser. I build this great little educational hands on learning tool kit to promote and support literacy. It comes with my story book, a W5 doll size Radio Flyer little red wagon, a plastic tray I got made for it to protect the wagon and to allow the children to still play with the wagon after they build their own flower garden for it, comes with a bag of Pro mix soil, 3 piece garden tools, 1 pair of gloves that come in 4 different sizes from ages 3-12, red, green, blue or pink plus a package of flower seeds I got made to represent the 5 colors of flowers in the book. It all comes wrapped up in a little red bow sealed in a box with a label, bar code and My Little Red Wagon company logo and information. Since launching April 2016 My garden kit can now be purchased in over 30 locations across Alberta and BC. Leaving a literacy trail along the way. I would be honored to name all the stores if you like including 12 Home Hardware stores and an Indigo and Cole's book store. Little Red Wagon is enjoyed by many generations for 100 years, leaving a huge impacted on generations to come. Radio Flyer and literacy share one great thing together. They both effect every generation and are a HUGE part of the future. Every one has a story with a little red wagon or knows someone who had one. Every one knows someone who learns a little different and or struggles with basic education. Reading and simple math. Many know the challenges some struggle with learning, reading and writing and how it still effects many of our children, youth and adults. Did you know with only 1% increase in the literacy rate would generate $18 Billion in economic growth every year. Investment in literacy programming has a 241% return on investment. Literacy is much more then reading and writing; it is an essential skill that is the foundation for future learning. It is about people’s ability to participate in everyday activities like banking, readying a safety manual, reviewing a child’s report card and acquiring new skills to keep jobs or to change jobs and to create jobs in our community's. It's also needed to put together Radio Flyers products. Education isn’t just about letters and numbers it’s about learning. Literacy has no color or race but effects every generation. Radio Flyer carries this same trade. Investments in foundation skills would lead to improve in livelihood, levels of health, increased productivity, reduce social costs and higher growth participate in community decision-making and early childhood development. Radio Flyer is a huge part of play and grow how about being part of something even greater? Play, Grow, & Learn. Teaching all the importance of childhood growth. Education, literacy, learning, building. Watching Learning growing. 100 years is celebration for The many generations of Radio Flyer customers and the new literacy generation that follow with it. My Little Red Wagon Garden Kit was created for ages 3-12 but a story for all ages. Radio Flyer celebrates 100 years of creation, why not create literacy in the new generation of Radio Flyer. Radio flyer is a HUGE part of the worlds growth, so is literacy learning. What a great little idea to get education a part of play. Watching learning grow. Thank you for being a part of my literacy growth and my active child within. I hope my new growing learning garden kit will become a great new project for Radio Flyer to celebrate one day. Thank you for the life learning lessons Love Darcie Taylor
