The Little Tikes Cozy Coupe 30th Anniversary

The Little Tikes Cozy Coupe 30th Anniversary is a celebratory edition of the Little Tikes Cozy Coupe range following thirty years of selling one of the toy manufacturer’s most successful products ever released on the market. It shot up the top seller’s list shortly after its release in the 1980’s and continues to be one of the most popular kids riding cars to be found. The special edition toy car is designed in a cherry red and bright yellow colour and features a smiley face on the front bumper, giving the coupe a child friendly personality.

Based on the popular cozy coupe range, the 30th anniversary version comes with a usable ignition switch and a petrol cap which can be opened and closed, just like a real automobile! It even has a rear storage compartment, perfect for carrying around snacks or your child’s favourite toys. For those toddler’s who have start their morning with a coffee pick me up (only joking!), there are foldable cup holders inside the vehicle. To accommodate younger toddlers and focusing on the ever present priority of making the car as safe as possible, the designers have built in a removable floor. This makes it perfect for very young children who may hurt their feet as the little tikes cozy coupe 30th anniversary model moves around, and parents can just insert the floor board, keeping the kid’s legs inside the cockpit. It has functioning doors which slide open to allow access to the interior, a high seat back to increase safety and comfort and a working steering wheel. It even features a rear handle on the back of the car so parents can give their youngster’s a hand! In terms of mobility, model includes large front wheel made of a durable material and designed to move in a circular, 360 degree motion.

The company recommends this product for children aged between 18 months and five years, but my own sons are still using their little tikes cozy coupe 30th anniversary cars and they are aged six and eight! Just like most of the products this toy manufacturer produces, it is very affordably and easy on the wallet, costing $49.99. This may vary slightly if bought online, from the retailer themselves or an external distributor.

I can highly recommend this car to anyone who is interested in buying a unique and very entertaining toy for their kids. It is very durable and will sustain a huge amount of wear and tear (I am surprised my kid’s is still hold together after all the accidents it has had, but it almost looks as good as new after two years!). I hope this has given you an insight into the Little Tikes Cozy Coupe 30th Anniversary model.
