A Sunday Feel Good Story – Radio Flyer

radio flyer

As a kid, just about everyone had one of these, or at least a neighbor kid had one that shared. Growing up with two brothers and a sister, ours got used with great frequency. When not hauling kids behind tricycles and bicycles, or being used as a shield in back-yard wars, Dad used it to haul everything from shingles to landscape rocks, sometimes with a kid or two riding on top.

This particular couple has taken Radio Flyer to a whole new level, and it no longer needs to be pulled by a bicycle.  This video, made in 2010, has made the email and FB rounds several times, and each time it does, more people are saying ‘I want one too!’

Including me – I want one too, or at least a ride in theirs. It just looks like such fun.

    That “wagon” is such a beautifully executed Radio Flyer (on steroids), it’s got to be one of the most smile-inducing vehicles on the road. How could anyone who ever had a little red Radio Flyer wagon NOT smile when seeing this icon of kid’s fun. It’s GREAT!

    Now that was cool. I’ve seen literally THOUSANDS of custom cars during the illustrious career hauling the damn things, but NEVER anything like that.
