New Radio Flyer Takes Flight

Gear and Tech : January 20, 2009

Everything old is new again. Rocky Balboa, Rambo, Indiana Jones, John McClane, even the Dodge Challenger have all blown the dust off and made notable digital age comebacks. And while Indiana Jones probably should’ve stayed in mothballs, the brand new Radio Flyer wagon looks set to make a welcome return.

Fly me to the moon

As you can see, this isn’t your daddy’s radio flyer. Designed for the ipod generation, the Cloud 9 (as the redesigned red wagon has affectionately been dubbed) contains more features than the heavily modded Ford Focus I reluctantly drive.

Fresh off the assembly line, the Cloud 9 comes stock with: a built in MP3 dock and speakers, temperature display, clock, cupholders, and bucket seats with five-point harnesses.

No price has been listed yet, but if you’re going to buy a wagon that comes with cupholders and bucket seats, you probably don’t have to worry about the price anyway.
