Since its inception in 1923, Radio Flyer Wagons have become an American classic. It was first made by Antonio Pasin, an immigrant from Italy, who made his wagon out of wood. When he started producing the all steel wagon for mass consumption, he called it Radio Flyer, as a tribute to his love of radio and airplanes. Pasin borrowed the Ford Motor’s technology in making their own production line to be the first to mass produce children’s toy wagons.
Pasin’s company was named Radio Steel & Manufacturing Company of Chicago. Since it first produced the wagon, it made other steel products, but radio flyer wagon was its only success and had keep the company afloat during the great depression when others went bankrupt. The company has been renamed Radio Flyer and still produces different toy wagons and accessories but the Red Flyer Wagon is the most iconic and the preferred choice for customers.
