I felt it was important to review the Little Tikes Cozy Coupe as it was the favourite toy of my four sons.
It went through the mill as we only had the one Cozy Coupe with four boys vying for position of driver. If a toy can be resistant to that sort of treatment, believe me, it’s worth a mention on my website.
Even as a young mum with little experience of toys and their features I could see the advantages of this wonderful piece of play equipment from Little Tikes. It was so colourful, no sharp corners, a door which opened and a roof. What more could a little boy (or girl) want?
Come rain or shine, my boys loved it and have bought them for their own children who think they are the best toy in the world. Although, I have to say the Cozy Coupe comes in different designs and colours now and has eyes. There is even a trailer to fix on the back – Wow!
Dimensions 74.9 x 41.9 x 85.1 cms
Age Range 18 months to 5 years
Suggested Maximum Weight 22.7 kgs
Batteries Not required
Assembly Assembly required
The Cosy Coupe is celebrating its 30th anniversary and it is still made to a strong and hard wearing design.
It has storage facilities under the seat which is handy for all those little knick knacks. There is an ‘ignition switch’ and a petrol cap which can open and close.
It comes with ‘Certified Frustration-Free Packaging’. Please see notes on frustration full assembly though.
The Good Bits
This is a long lasting outdoor toy. It can withstand all sorts of weather conditions and looks like new with a quick rub down.
The quality is excellent and the little features like the open/shut petrol cap gives this car an edge.
Many nurseries, playschools and playgroups have invested in the Cozy Coupe so it can cope with continuous boisterous play.
The classic design appeals to girls and boys and now there are different colours and designs to choose from.
A floor plate can be removed for older children to be able move along the floor and put back for those little people who still need to be pushed along in it.
The Cosy Coupe inspires creative and imaginative play and if you are familiar with my website you will know how important that is to me.
The Other Bits
The assembly of it though, may just send you into a state of anxiety and stress. Give yourself enough time for extensive assembly if you want to give this to a little one in time for a birthday or Christmas present. The box is good but no substitute for a Cosy Coupe.
Before I give my opinion, I think it only fair to let you know that I am biased in its favour because of the impact it had on my own children.
I adore the Cozy Coupe.
I don’t even mind about the assembly problems as the finished result is worth all the time spent putting it together.
It is a beautiful piece of play equipment by itself. There are many new designs and ‘add-ons’ which I’m positive children will love but it is just perfect all by itself.
