Default Metal Radio Flyer wagon

Who here remember these old REAL radio flyer wagons?? This belonged to me as a kid, the wagon is at least 25 years old maybe a little older. It has sat outside for that long and now my baby boy is getting to enjoy it! Everything still turns and rolls the way it should! We thought using it for a few of his 1 year birthday pictures was a great idea!

Very, very cool photos. We had one as kids, durn near wore it out. Tons of fun with it...until you sat down on it after it had been out in the sun, and you were wearing shorts!

Best regards,

Dave

Remember to teach him there are no breaks. I had to learn the hard way.

We had one. It was old and rusty when I was a kid. It had a hole in the bottom that may or may not have come from my .22
Dad used it as his "wood hauler" to bring wood to the house in the winter. Good memories

Great throwback style pics. Makes me think of my Tonka toy tractors
when I was a kid.

This, or we would put it at the top of a hill and pull the handle towards the wagon. Sit down in it and steer it to the bottom. Good stuff! My boys had one, but it had the plastic wheels that didn't last long in the sun.

Don't have my old wagon, but I do have my metal wheel barrow that I got when I was 4yrs old.
