While it may be true that dinosaurs did not ride around in Radio Flyer Wagons, every living human today has most likely ridden in one and so have a lot of cats, dogs, hamsters, rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets, turtles, etc.
When I was little, my siblings and I would take turns riding or pulling the wagon so one another could ride. I am not sure which I preferred myself, riding or being the wagon’s “horse”.
Many of us can remember filling our Radio Flyer Wagon with an assortment of stuffed animals or dolls and taking them for a ride too.
Radio Flyer Wagons are Not Just for Child’s Play
Radio Flyer All-Terrain Cargo WagonRadio Flyer Wagons are a whole lot of fun, but in our household, they have been used for some very practical reasons too. Because of their sturdy construction, Radio Flyer wagons have been used for otherwise backbreaking chores.
One of the first gifts our daughter ever received was a Radio Flyer Wagon for Christmas. As a child, she loved riding around the block in her wagon.
As an adult, she has used it several times when moving, and I have even borrowed it to tote my plants from the car to the backyard. I also use it to move the rocks and concrete containers in my flower beds and on my patio. All the debris washes right off and the wagon looks good as new.
Many times, that wagon has saved my body, and certainly my back, from unwanted aches and pains. Oh, but please don’t tell my daughter about the rocks. She might feel her precious childhood wagon was rather abused by toting rocks, but I can assure you, no wagon was harmed in the toting of those rocks.
Award Winning Wagon
Not only was the Classic Radio Flyer Wagon an award winner of the Parents Magazine Toy Hall of Fame, but they are truly award winners with us for their versatility and all out fun that spans many generations.
Here are a few more current day variations of the Radio Flyer Wagon that are available on the market today.
