A to Z Challenge: W is for Wagon

W is for wagon.
I can ride in its bed,
or fill it with stuff
and pull it instead.

My red Radio Flyer was one of my most favorite toys as a child. It was a race car and I was the driver. It was a covered wagon for me and my friends to cross the pretend plains. It was a lemonade stand on wheels. And it was a platform for many an amateur float in a children's parade. In fact, it was such a cherished toy, that I still have it. It's down in my furnace room, and it's missing its handle, but I can't bear to part with it. I'm hoping that one day I might have it restored.
Do you have any toys from your childhood still in your possession?
