Radio Flyer’s Short Film Premier, Taking Flight

I think at some point everyone has had a Radio Flyer wagon or tricycle. I recall my twin brothers pulling themselves to many adventures in their Town & Country red wagon as kids. I purchased my son a Little Red Fire Engine when he was a toddler and I would push him around my house for hours. His sisters also had many turns when they were old enough. They all also pedaled the Classic Red Tricycle up and down our sidewalks for many years and many memories. My husband has pulled our three kiddos in our Pathfinder wagon for the past decade and a half.

Taking Flight

Chicago-based Radio Flyer and critically-acclaimed Moonbot Studios recently teamed up to produce the award-winning animated short film Taking Flight. The film was inspired by the life and heritage of Antonio Pasin, inventor of the beloved Little Red Wagon. In the fictional tribute, what begins as a small boy’s boring day with Grandpa turns into a larger-than-life journey of imaginative play.

Radio Flyer’s Chief Wagon Officer Robert Pasin and award-winning director Brandon Oldenburg, CCO and partner of Moonbot Studios, hosted an exclusive viewing party and Q&A in Radio Flyer’s hometown of Chicago this past Saturday. Radio Flyer also invited everyone to tune in to their Facebook Live Event to watch the film.
Taking Flight will provide fun for the whole family while watching and enjoying this short film together. Through the power of a child's imagination and an epic adventure with a grandparent, a young boy learns to be a kid, a father learns to be a dad, and a grandpa reminds all of us what childhood is all about.

Right now, Radio Flyer is listening to our "Little Red Stories". Little Red Stories is where Radio Flyer fans can share personal stories about how a Radio Flyer product has brought fun and joy to themselves or loved ones, whether in the past or present. If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I ran over my kids Radio Flyer tricycle, but they were still able to ride it (whew). A winner is chosen once a week throughout the months of September and October. The winner will be featured on the Radio Flyer website AND receive a prize.

Do youhave a Little Red Story to tell, Radio Flyer wants to hear it!
