Antonio Pasin was the founder of Radio Flyer. A skilled cabinet maker, Antonio started manufacturing a wooden coaster wagon in Chicago in 1917 after emigrating from Italy. He created the name Radio Flyer to capture the fascination with two cutting edge technologies of the time, radio broadcasts and airplane flights. Antonio created a legacy of beautifully designed, quality children’s products that continue to spark imagination and inspiration as Radio Flyer is rediscovered with each new generation. Over 100 years later, Radio Flyer remains a Chicago-based family company led by Antonio’s grandson and Chief Wagon Officer, Robert Pasin. Radio Flyer has created more than 100 award-winning products available in 25 countries. This legacy was recognized when Antonio was inducted into the Toy Industry Hall of Fame in 2003. The company also created an Emmy award-winning short film, Taking Flight, inspired by Antonio’s life, work and the enduring icon he created.
