I always wanted one. I remember once my cousin pushed me off his and I got my knee cut really bad on some glass on the ground. I still have that scar. I saw one this morning on the news that would make me go back to driving or at least try. if you like toys and cars look at this one. you wont believe it. http://www.ktuu.com/news/ktuu-radio-flyer-car-092910,0,1784245.story NOT A REFERRAL, its a news item. So,did you ever have a little red wagon as a child? Im sure lots of kids would love this one.

Yes! I did have a little red wagon when I was a kid! We would play for hours and hours! We pushed and pulled each other and created all sorts of obstacles! It provided lots of fun, as well as bumps and bruises! I could put one knee in the wagon and fold the tongue up and push with my other foot and go down hills all day long! Lots of fond memories of my little red wagon!

Yes we had one of these when we were kids. We took turns pushing each other. the rider did the steering with the handle.

Lol!!! I was a tomboy. My brother and his friends were so much fun. I was in the trees more than on the ground. Once my brother coaxed me on top the roof of the chicken coop. We climbed up by way of the roof of my aunts old car that was sitting there. We hung out up there for awhile. When we desided to get down was another story. It looked so scary to me. So far down suddenly. My brother had to go get our grandma to get me down. Boy was she mad. She told us to stay off that roof. I did.

Oh yes, I sure did. I would put my dolls in it and whatever else and my two cousins and I would take turns hauling us all over my grandmother's place. We had more fun with it. It was great for hauling toys and people all over in it. It lasted for many years.

That's one cool looking car! I can see why it turns heads! LOL Nope, I never had one when I was a child. I didn't even have one as an adult! LOL I did want to get one for my own children, but never got around to buying one. However, I don't think they'd be interested now as they're getting a little too old! LOL Happy mylotting!

That is just awesome. We had a Radio Flyer when we were children and my children got to play with our old one as well until it got torn up. Since then, they've only had a little green plastic wagon. I would love to see that driving around where we live, I'm sure that it would get a lot of attention around here. That said, we recently bought a 1973 Beetle and we are hoping to be able to restore that as a midlife car.

yes isnt that wagon car cute. i bet your beetle is going to be so cute to. it will likely get a lot of attention. a friend i knew a few years ago had one she painted yellow she loved it. it certainly got attention being yellow. i told her she shoulda tried orange. i like orange and it could be called her orange then...lol

We grew up on a farm and had several "little red wagons" over the years. We crashed and burned (so to speak) many of them! What fun they were! There were five of us kids in all and I believe there were still 2 or 3 wagons left to pass on to younger cousins as we grew up, so not all of them were wrecked. I think every kid should have one!! Imagination and wonder you find all by yourself, without the tv, video games giving it to you. Oh, this brings back wonderful memories (discussion not the video :-) ). Thank you.

Bunny, Silly me, I answered your question about having a wagon before I finished reading and seeing the video. That car is soooooo incredible! I know it brings joy to every person that sees it, even if they did grow with the little red wagon, as some of us did. Thanks so much for sharing.....it really brightened my day!

I sure did Bunny, and now you make me think back to my childhood. It was a bit rusty, but we had lots of fun in it and lots of spills! I use to love riding the dog in it although I don't know how much he liked it. Thanks for helping to bring back those very special memories .

What a neat idea! I'm surprised they are allowed to drive it on the street legally. I didn't have a wagon as a kid. I bought one for my kids but we only really use it to tote them around the back yard and I give tours to them as when we had tried to take my oldest places in it she'd never stay sitting so we eventually gave up plus I'm not real tall, I'm average but the handle was too hosrt for me to pull decently w/o pulling my back a bit out of wack.

well at least you tried for your kids sake. when they get a little older maybe they will know how to push themselves.

yes like i said, i didnt have one of my own but would sneak and ride my cousins when we were at their house. sometimes they'd let me. other times like when the one pushed me off, they were mean about it. but thats boys for you. i still have scars on my knee from that glass.

yes makes me wonder why women like us have to live out our days without our hubby. it would be great to have both the hubby and the car/wagon

This couple must have a lot of memories from their childhood about wagons - only smaller in size..I hope they have a break on the vehicle.. I had no such wagon, but we had a lot of fun when we were kids. I remember once when we would train jumping from a rather high gatepost and really believed that we would learn to fly if we kept waving our arms enough. We kept feeling behind each otherĀ“s shoulders, if the wings had started to grow..
