This must have been the best wagon Ev-ver … top-of-the-line, deluxe model, probably the cadillac of all kids’ wagons ever made. Check this out: a super durable, solid hardwood box with weather-resistant finish, solid steel wheels with rubber tires for quiet comfortable rides, steel axles with ball bearings for friction-free motion, and a hardwood handle with formed metal grip for easy steering and handling. Does it get any better than this?!
Of course it does! Look at the one significant feature that makes this wagon stand out above all the rest. That’s right, a hand brake. Have you ever let go of your wagon to play kick ball, search for 4-leaf clovers or climb a tree? only to find your wagon crashed in a heap at the bottom of the hill? Put the hand brake on this little beauty and she’ll stay in one place ’til the cows come home.
Geez, when I was a kid I had a red Radio Flyer wagon and I thought I was pretty cool, but I never had a wagon with a hand brake. The guy who dreamed up the hand brake must have been one of the founders of OSHA.
