Sharing is caring!

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Radio Flyer. The opinions and text are all mine.

Did you have a red wagon as a kid? I remember my red Radio Flyer Wagon as a child. It is one of the fondest of my memories. I actually had 2 wagons. They were my travel companions for carrying stuffed animals and baby dolls, and also playing cars or driving space ships. My Radio Flyer Wagon was a highlight of my childhood. I remember my grandmother even allowing me to bring it into the house to play with.

Now that I have kids of my own we have a Radio Flyer Wagon. My kids love it! We have used it for travel, fun, and building memories together. I hope that they look back on the memories with our wagon and see the timeless symbol of childhood imagination that Radio Flyer is.

Look at how accommodating and relaxing it is for two kiddos. They sit perfectly and both have spacious seating.

Need build in storage space? Put the seats down and store your goodies (like maybe your picnic items) below. The seats when folded down serve as cup holders too! Love this!!

Radio Flyer’s founder Antonio Pasin started Radio Flyer in 1917 and his dream was to “bring joy to every boy and every girl” This is certainly an accomplishment. I can personally attest to the fond memories of lay and imagination with my own Radio Flyer.

Only have one rider? Let her sit in one seat and fold the other seat down to use as a foot rest!!

What imaginary destination can you share?


  1. I remember also using a wagon when we were kids. We used to play dolls and control them using different voices inside our home. Imagination can run wild and this is where creativity also comes in especially for outdoor fun. I think the Radio Flyer Wagon can also be used for pets.

  2. Yes, my sister and I had a wagon when were were kids. Those are great uses for wagons. I like the idea to use it to hold baked goods at bake sales and of course, carting your furry friends around town in a wagon is an adorable idea!

  3. This is so creative and useful. I had always though about carrying kids on it, and that was it. Who was going to hing you can use a wagon on so many ways? I am sad that some events are not allowing them anymore but I will keep taking mine to those places that let me and will be using it for more things now that I read this.

  4. Katherine says:

    I love how the seats flip up to create a back rest. So convenient. Do you think it would fit a regular sized trunk?

  5. Your children are so adorable! I did not realize that wagons had this much of a purpose. Your ideas are going to inspire parents to start a bake sale or go to the zoo with their children on a wagon! I have seen parents bring their little ones to the park in such wagons but did not realize it had storage underneath. Really neat!

  6. I never had one of these as a kid but it looks like so much fun! I know my daughter would love to have this down at the park!

  7. I haven’t thought about little red wagons in years. I had one growing up .. and my kids did as well. Honestly, what would a childhood be without one? One of my favorite memories was Halloween. Every year the kids & the dog piled in and we went door to door trick or treating. x

  8. They are some pretty awesome wagons. And they have incredible storage capacity now. I just think we bought one for our daughter a little late. And by the time we got one it just wasn’t large enough to do what we wanted to do with it. She did enjoy it for the brief times that we used it though. They are such great wagons. I love that they have umbrella type stuff to sunshade your kids as well.
