I don’t think there’s a more prominent image that glorifies the innocence of youth than those of young children being pulled along in a Red Flyer Wagon. Radio Flyer is an American toy company that is most popular and best known for their red wagons.
Italian craftsman Antonio Pasin began building wooden wagons in Chicago in 1917 and he started the Liberty Coaster Company in 1923. The first steel wagon to be produced was named the Radio Flyer and the name has stuck ever since then. 1923 was also the year that the famous “No. 4 Liberty Coaster”, the first wood and steel wagon, was built. Over the years, the practical plastic models were introduced.
- The Red Flyer wagons have been an incredibly popular staple for children. Kids are fascinated when they’re able to sit and ride in their spiffy red ride on toy. Wagons are actually a great toy that encourages your children to experience both sensory and cognitive stimulation.
- While on their Red Flyer Wagon your children will experience sensory stimulation when they’re able to see, smell, and hear the great outdoors. As you’re touring the neighborhood, your child will be taking in all of the images and sounds that are taking place around them.
