The Bottom Line: We would recommend the Radio Flyer Town and Country Wagon. It is a sturdy, reliable wagon that can be used for many different things


As I child I had a red wagon. When my youngest turned a year old my parents bought him the Radio Flyer Town and Country Wagon. This wagon was similar to the one I owned as a child.

The Radio Flyer Town and Country Wagon is beautifully crafted with a natural hardwood body. The frame is black and made of steel. The sides are made of red wood and are easily inserted and removed. There are four sides, two long ones for the sides, and a front and back panel. The sides are painted a beautiful red and the wagon bed is a pale hardwood. The sides are 9.5” high. The wheels are steel with rubber tires. The handle is extra long and angled which makes it easy to pull. The handle also folds under to make it easier to travel with. The Radio Flyer Town and Country Wagon also has a controlled turning radius (the wheels will only turn so far) to help prevent tipping. There is also a no pinch ball joint so no one gets their fingers pinches.

The Radio Flyer Town and Country Wagon measures 5.5 x 15.5 x 36.5 inches and weighs about 32 pounds. The wagon is recommended for children eighteen months to six years.

We have had the Radio Flyer Town and Country Wagon for ten years. We have always stored the wagon outside but out of the weather. Unfortunately the paint on the wagon has been peeling for years and it has also rusted. Even though the paint started peeling the wood has never splintered.

Neither of my sons really liked playing with the wagon or being pulled in it. After a few years the wagon was used more for outdoor chores then it was anything else. We still have the wagon and use it today when cutting wood, for picking up kindle wood, weeding and when gardening. I’m sure my parents weren’t thrilled that my boys didn’t enjoy the wagon as a play toy but it at least it does get used.

Some may also think the price of the Radio Flyer Town and Country Wagon is a bit high. I’m not sure what my parents paid for it (but according to them “It wasn’t cheap so take care of it”) but I do see they still sell it for around $150.00.

I’m really not sure why my boys didn’t enjoy playing with the wagon. We live back in the mountains and it is harder to pull in the grass. We do have a long driveway but it is not paved, it has stones in it, so it isn’t easy to pull the wagon there either. Maybe if they would have had better riding surfaces, they may have enjoyed it more.

I never took the Radio Flyer Town and Country Wagon when we traveled, I always took my strollers. Personally I always thought the wagon seemed too big to take traveling. I’m sure it would have been fun to be pulled around an amusement park or on the boardwalk but we thought it would take up too much room in the car trunk.

Even though the Radio Flyer Town and Country Wagon didn’t get used as intended, it still did and does get used. I like it better then my wheel barrel when weeding as I can put a lot more weeds in it. I also don’t have to worry about the wagon tipping like my wheel barrel tends to do. It also is great when taking soil back to the garden. Instead of carrying each bag, I just place them in the wagon and pull it back to my garden.

If my children used the wagon, I would be concerned that the paint chipped and the wagon rusted but since I use it for my chores, it really doesn’t matter. If you are purchasing this for a child, please be aware.

If you are looking for a wagon for a child, we would recommend the Radio Flyer Town and Country Wagon. It is a sturdy, reliable wagon that can be used for many different things.
