Radio Flyer - In The 90's


The 1990’s were truly a decade of technological boom. The internet boomed as dot com companies gained unheard-of ground. The world wide web shot to popularity as the preferred method of communication and learning. Personal computer ownership grew by more than 200% in a few short years, and cell phone sales exploded worldwide.

Back in 1917, Antonio Pasin journeyed from Italy with little more than a pocketful of dreams. Inspired by the welcoming sight of the Statue of Liberty, the Liberty Coaster Company was born.
Over the past 85 years the liberty Coaster Company has grown to become what we know today as Radio Flyer, the world's number one wagon maker.

By the mid-1990’s, Antonio’s grandchildren took leadership of the company, becoming the third generation of Pasin’s to nurture the imaginations of children everywhere.

In 1997, Radio Flyer celebrated it’s 80th Anniversary … and the world celebrated with us. Headlines and television programs across America heralded Radio Flyer for outstanding products and community involvement, reaching 150 million people!

Radio Flyer - The Motion Picture
In 1992, the silver screen celebrated the limitless qualities of a Little Red Wagon, "powered by the imagination." The feature film, bearing the Radio Flyer name, depicted one of the many ways this simple toy has become extraordinary to children everywhere.

Everyone has a Radio Flyer story. We’ve collected some of the most poignant in My Little Red Wagon, a beautiful book that pays tribute to the American classic that has meant so much to so many.

Take the #912 Mountain Trike, it was the only tricycle with a real working hand brake plus all the other off-road features that little riders could count on. The groundbreaking #2500 Quad-Shock Wagon was fitted with Monroe approved shock absorbers for a quiet, easy ride, and with it’s high wooden stake sides and big, brawney air tires, the #32 ATW Steel & Wood Wagon could handle any terrain.

Radio Flyer creates a new experience in fun with the #2100 Push Pull Wagon. Our very first plastic wagon was created to go from push mode to pull mode in seconds without any hardware. Simply unlatch the handle from the back and attach it to the front. With a huge storage area onboard, the Push Pull Wagon was truly one-of-a-kind.

This multi-award winning retro tricycle was introduced to much success. The classic "Retro Red" Radio Flyer styling and sturdy steel construction makes this an instant classic. For every boy. For every girl.



In 1997, Radio Flyer introduced the World's Largest Wagon™ to celebrate the 80th anniversary of the company. The wagon itself is 27 feet long, 13 feet wide, and weighs 15,000 pounds — making it the biggest wagon in history!
