Company Image projected When Antonio Pasin started Radio Flyer in 1917, his dream was to "bring joy to every boy and every girl". Today, the Radio Flyer family continues that tradition by building safe, quality toys that spark imagination and inspire active play. From the original little red wagon to current wagons, tricycles, scooters, and other ride-ons, our toys bring smiles to children and families around the world and create warm memories that last a lifetime. "Our goal was that when customers see our tricycle, they'd say, 'That was the tricycle I had as a kid,' even though it wasn't, because we didn't make tricycles when they were a kid”
received 1. Quality and technical problem Of course there were a few downsides to the wagons. For example, delivering newspapers in the
winter was a tough go when people didn't shovel sidewalks. Talk about getting stuck. The most awful would be dealing with deep snow on Sunday mornings, especially during the holiday shopping season. Boy, that's when you needed to recruit a friend or two, who had an extra wagon. As a last resort, waking good old dad at three in the morning with tears in your eyes might work once in a while. Having pop and a warm car was a treat. It also made the route go quicker. Certainly other problems were the mechanical type. A broken or wobbling wheel was tolerable unless the cotter pins snapped. A piece of wood might give you temporary relief to finish the route. But a visit to the Badger Paint Store (later Coast-to-Coast) was in order if you wanted to avoid a new investment. Of course the worst breakdowns occurred when the handle would snap loose from its hinge. The only repair that helped keep things rolling was taking the twine from a bundle and making a makeshift lever. But that took its toll on the palms. 2. Consumers have an emotional attachment to Radio Flyer people have such a great emotional attachment to the wagons because so many people grew up with them, and the wagon is such a simple, enduring product. Often times, a Radio Flyer wagon was part of a kidâ€™s first adventure, and the wheels represented motion, freedom and imagination.
