Radio Flyer Cyclone™ Provides Modern Take on Classic Kid-Powered Toy, Offering a Fun, Healthy Way to Ride and Play

 

CHICAGO, March 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Radio Flyer, Inc., maker of the famous little red wagon and leading producer of wagons, tricycles and three-wheel scooters in the United States, introduces Cyclone, a new way for kids to zoom, spin and grin while they stay active and have unlimited fun. 

Fueling play with innovation, Cyclone utilizes arm-powered action.  Kids ages three to seven-years-old rotate giant 16-inch wheels with their arms to propel the Radio Flyer Cyclone into 360-degree spins, quick forward sprints and reverse rolls. A great confidence builder and introduction to exercise for young riders, the kid-powered ride-on encourages active, healthy outdoor play for hours of fun.

"Cyclone is another fan-favorite.  Kids love zooming, spinning and rolling different ways.  They can't seem to stop grinning during their ride," said Robert Pasin, Chief Wagon Officer at Radio Flyer and grandson of the company's founder.  "At the same time, parents appreciate Cyclone because it provides a way for children to be active and enjoy healthy, outdoor play.  It's a real win, win."  

Radio Flyer's latest innovation, Cyclone offers a speedy, smooth ride, which is further enabled by a footrest and sturdy rear caster wheel for added stability.  The cutting-edge design features a sleek, steel frame for non-stop spinning and gliding action.  On top of that, molded handgrips and an ergonomic seat provide a comfortable mission control position for kids to take sidewalks, driveways and playgrounds by storm. 

Available at Toys R Us for $59.99, Cyclone can also be found on radioflyer.com. For more information on Cyclone and other ways to get out and play, visit radioflyer.com.
