First Converse, then Levis, now this?

This through Whiskey Bar: The Macomb Daily mentions that Radio Flyer, yes the little red wagon company, is moving much of its operations to China.

The company’s Web site is mum on the announcement, which seems to have come yesterday. However the site’s history page has this:

“Like the Original Red Wagon that lent the company its name, Radio Flyer Inc. has become an American Classic. From its humble beginnings, this simple, enduring enterprise has been reinterpreted and rediscovered with each new generation – creating a legacy of toys that continue to inspire the imagination.”

Can the American economy no longer support its “classics”? Is Gen Y the last new generation to enjoy this American classic?
