If you are looking for a ride-on/ride-in toy for a child, the Little Tikes Cozy Coupe is a popular choice that just celebrated its 30th anniversary. The Cozy Coupe comes in a wide variety of styles, including the classic, police car, fire truck, princess and taxi editions. In addition to the many styles available, the Coupe is also rated by Little Tikes for a wide age range. Little Tikes suggests this toy for kids ages 1 1/2 to 5. So, if you purchase a Cozy Coupe when you child is young, the chances are good they will get years of enjoyment out of it.
Features of Little Tikes Cozy Coupe
One feature that is really great about the Cozy Coupe is the removable floor board. This feature allows parents to convert the toy from a kid powered walking toy, to an adult powered push toy. The benefit of this is, you can purchase the toy when your child is very young and push them in it until they develop the large motor skills and leg strength to push themselves, again, giving you years of use out of the toy.
There are several other features that make this toy a favorite among kids. For example, in the police car edition, there are working lights and a siren. The taxi edition features a microphone that plays four different “city sounds”. Every edition features a door that opens and closes. They also all have a gas cap that opens and closes, and a working horn. Each Coupe also features 360 degree turning front wheels and a parent push bar in the rear for easy maneuvering. The perfect thing about this toy is, that it can be used outdoors as well as indoors during the winter.
There are a few drawbacks when it comes to the Cozy Coupe as well. For some, the push bar on the back of the toy is low. If you have to bend over to push the car, it can get uncomfortable quickly. Also, the toy overall is a little top-heavy. It is not difficult to tip the car over when the child is getting in or out. Once the child is seated in the car, the center gravity lowers and it does not tip as easily. Some reviewers have mentioned that they felt the assembly was difficult. Others felt assembly was quite easy. Most likely, this will depend on your experience in assembling children’s toys. If you have ever assembled a full kid’s kitchen, this will be a snap. If this is the first larger toy you are putting together, give yourself a little more time.
