Life is better with…My Radio Flyer Wagon

It is our other child.  It goes with us everywhere.  It fits perfectly in the back of our car and it is the perfect tote for all occasions.  We bought it when we lived in an apartment and I had 2 toddlers and a baby.  I thought, “How on earth am I to bring groceries up the elevator with 3 kids?”

Solution: Radio Flyer Wagon.

It’s our ticket to easy trips to the zoo, aquarium, museum, etc.  because more than one kid can ride in it as well as any bags or food coolers.

Going to the beach?  No problem.  I fill it up with towels and beach toys, then dump the sand out when we get home.

So, there you go.  It is a very practical piece of mom equipment.  But that’s not even the best part about it.  We took it on a camping trip one year to an area with a steep dirt road.  Inspired by Calvin and Hobbes, that’s where we discovered what we termed “Hawaiian Sledding.”  So much fun!!

I LOVE my Radio Flyer Wagon!  It’s been 2 1/2 years since we’ve purchased the Radio Flyer Wagon, and it has had its fair share of abuse, but it is still in great shape and we’ve had no problems.

About Heidi

My name is Heidi and I live on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii. I have three young girls and a baby son, and a husband who makes me laugh. We love to turn up the music and dance in the livingroom, bend down and smell fresh grass, and play at the beach in the sunshine. I run a stand up paddle school, sharing good times with tourists on the island. I love teaching stand up paddling, and it proves a challenge to do a good job raising a family while running a business. Like my post? Please leave a comment.

    It depends on how deep the sand is and the weight of what you are carrying. Of course, the sand gives more drag, but we usually do alright. You can also get a wagon with chunkier tires, like off roading tires, that would work better.

    Really? It rolls no problem on the sand?
