Buying a Good Old Radio Flyer

My son, Ezra, recently turned one year old. We'd been thinking about getting a wagon for some time (both he and older sister Johanna could use) and decided that this was the right time.

I was delighted to find that you can still buy a good quality, metal Radio Flyer wagon. Not only can you purchase the original style "classic model," they produce an "All-Terrain Wagon" with larger, wider wheels. We decided to get the Big Red Classic ATW, which has a deeper bed, real-air tires (as opposed to solid rubber), and side railings.

The wagon rides quite nicely. We took it to Crane beach, which has soft, deep sand and were able to pull the kids and beach supplies without much difficulty. Also took it through town to a nearby pond, a much smoother ride along the city sidewalks than the classic hard-rubber-wheeled model.

Nice to know that you can still get this kind of quality.
