Many of us can still remember sitting in a classic Radio Flyer wagon; this revamped Radio Flyer Cloud 9 has updated the standard tot transportation for today's discerning youngsters and nostalgic parents.

The classic Radio Flyer was at once a carriage, spaceship, racecar, sandbox, and dollhouse. Us kids were entrusted with the burden of preserving our own safety by holding on for dear life.

By contrast, the Radio Flyer Cloud 9 is far more tech-savvy, however, with digital controls, an MP3 player dock, fold-out storage containers, and speakers. There are five-point safety harnesses, foot brakes, cup holders, and padded seats.

For particularly tech-savvy parents, there is a digital handle to track temperature, speed, distance, and time, according to CNN.
