Be a Radio Flyer!

Radio Flyer’s Turbo Turtle is another hit from a fantastic toy company.

My appreciation for Radio Flyer runs deeper than just nostalgia for the Radio Flyer Classic Red Wagon–they continue to come out with fun, innovative toys. And their new ride-on, Turbo Turtle, is a wild ride for toddlers an preschoolers.

The best part about the Turbo Turtle is the spinning indoor-outdoor caster wheels. Unlike many ride-on toys that seem to have the turning radius of a Mac Truck, the Turbo Turtle can spin on a dime.

My daughter can move the Turbo Turtle with her feet or push off and glide and use the ride-on safely both indoors and outdoors.

There is the all-important under-seat storage, because toddlers love to put things in and take them out and hide the remote controller whenever their grandparents want to watch television.

A feature with mixed benefits is the electronic dashboard. My daughter thought it was the coolest, but the sound effects gave me flashbacks to a 1980s arcade where I wasted some of my youth and a lot of my parents’ quarters. You are the parent, though, so you have the choice to pull the batteries or keep them in.

And the Turbo Turtle comes ready to ride right out of the box, batteries included, which an essential for stress-free Holiday Gift giving–so you can spend time lighting the Menorah, baking cookies for Santa, and enjoying your family.

Toddlers will love this adorable new addition to the Radio Flyer family.

    I’m putting the Radio Flyer Retro Rocket on our wish list.

  2. Ann says:

    I never got a Radio Flyer when I was a youngin’, I wanted one but all I got was a knock off that the paint fell off. Saddest thing is my parents still have that old one at their house! They use it for the garden, it has carried cement, rocks, dirt, you name it. Tires have been replaced and it is a pile of rust but sigh, they still use it.

    Now fast forward to me seeing one in the Sears Wishlist Catalog, I made comment on it. So what did my infant son get for Christmas, MY RADIO FLYER, the nerve! LOL…but get this, it was the mini version of it, his little body fit so easy into it, we have pictures.

    The Radio Flyer Turbo Turtle is so awesome, never seen it before but now I am certainly wanting it…hey do you think I could ride in it? *giggle*

    Thank you for the chance, Happy Holidays to you and yours.

  3. My favorite Radio Flyer memory is riding my wagon down the big hill in the neighborhood….steering (or trying to steer) with the handle pulled inside the wagon! So much fun (although my kids would be in big trouble if I ever saw THEM doing that!).

    Radio Flyer is such a great company with SO MANY great toys for kids. You know you can trust the brand and that it will last for years.

    Thanks for the giveaway!!

  6. LeeAnn P. says:

    Pulling my kids to the store in the radio flyer wagon then making them walk home so I could put the groceries in the wagon! Good Times.

  7. Jennifer R says:

    I can honestly say that the Radio Flyer classic tricycles my sons received on their 2nd birthday was by far their favorite gift ever and the one they play with the most…. even now and they are turning 5 soon. I love Radio Flyer. Great classic toys!

  8. Maggie Smith says:

    I will never forget the Christmas of ’86 when I got my first Radio Flyer. I loved it sooo much. I use to see them give them away all the time on the Bozo Show and it made me want one so badly!!


  9. Kerri Sigmon says:

    My holiday wish is that this awful economy starts to come back and all these people who without jobs are able to bounce back from poverty.

  10. Tiffany Ramsey says:

    This is GREAT!!! I remember going to the hardwear store for my birthday when I was 5 and getting a Radio Flyer Wagon. I am now 37 and my children play with it now! They are wonderful things!

  12. Linda Russell says:

    We had a radio flyer red wagon as kids and boy did we have alot of fun with that. We used to play a race game with the wagons and bikes and it was alot of laughs and fun! Thanks for the memory.

  13. kathy pease says:

    i never had one as a child :(

  14. Jodi says:

    I remember my younger brother receiving his first radio flyer wagon, it was so shiny and so exciting.

  15. Brenda Park says:

    My favorite Radio Flyer memory is riding our wagon in the basement of our house with my brother. We rode it around the basement on rainy or snowy days. We were always very careful while playing, and both of us will deny knowing anything about how that dent got in the dryer to this day!

  16. Catherine KingChuparkoff says:

    I had the basic radio flyer wagon, but I loved the bright red color and decorated it with wonderful stickers and made it my own…

  25. Dianne says:

    My cousins lived on a street that was on a hill. We would take turns literally flying down the hill in their Radio Flyer. The trick was at the bottom of the hill you had to tip the wagon over onto the lawn by the sidewalk to stop the wagon from going into the avenue at the bottom of the street. A lot of bandaids got used from the little scrapes we all seemed to get but it didn’t stop the lineup for the next wild ride down.

  26. Jen says:

    I love our classic Radio Flyer wagon WITH seatbelts! =)

  27. Susan P says:

    Cool! Grandma gave my son a radio flyer ride on and he moves it!

  28. Janine says:

    Our radio flyer wagon from the 60’s was so durable that the wheels on it were beginning to wear rough. It sort of reminded me of the flinstones wheels but made for an interesting ride down the steep hills.

  29. Donna K says:

    My favorite memory is of the wagon.

    I love the Radio Flyer Inchworm!

  32. Pamela Lytle says:

    I remember HAVING to have the red wagon, and getting it one “1960s” morning!

  33. Beverly Metcalf says:

    That turbo turtle is so cute. I would love to win it for my little granddaughter. My children had the red flyer wagon, when they were little and played with it all the time, pulling each other and their toys around in it. Thanks for having the contest and Happy Holidays to all.
