History of National Little Red Wagon Day
The little red carriage is a vivid part of everyone's childhood. Bright, small and pushed by adults, the time spent in the red carriage was unforgettable. National Little Red Wagon Day was founded by the parent company of the red car, Radio Flyer, to celebrate 100 years of making one of the most popular and beloved toys for children.
The small wagon's history goes back to 1917, before the company was even named Radio Flyer. Antonio Pasin, the founder of Radio Flyer, is a carpenter who makes a phonograph cabinet and uses a small wagon to store his tools. Meeting the eyes of many people, everyone was attracted by the small carriage. Growing demand for small carts that were originally used as a toolbox led Pasin to start manufacturing wagons. The first name of Pasin's newly formed company in 1923 was Liberty Coaster Company. Getting up to speed, it was renamed Radio Steel & Manufacturing in 1930 with an advanced version of the wagon stamped in steel and eventually made its way onto the Radio Flyer a few years later.
The red cart's explosive popularity grew after the 1933 Chicago World's Fair, where Pasin erected a 45-foot statue of a boy riding a red cart. Known as the world's largest red wagon, Radio Flyer used it for their 80th and then 100th anniversary to pay tribute to the only outdoor toy passed down through many generations. The little red carriage has since brought smiles, nurtured imaginations and had a healthy, positive impact on little kids. Every last Wednesday in March, we bring back fond memories and celebrate classic American toys.
