Little Tikes Cozy Coupe Car Review

The Coupe line of toys from Little Tikes has been around for a long time, and it has inspired many generations to get themselves moving by helping to develop their coordination and leg muscles. It is the kind of ride-on toy that people who had one when they are young never seem to forget, and the Little Tikes Cozy Coupe Car allows you to start that tradition all over again with your own kids.

There have been some changes to the Coupe design over the past few decades, but that classic look remains the same. The newer version has some details the old ones did not have, but this is still the toy your kids will want when it is time for them to learn how to walk on their own.

Basic Features of the Little Tikes Cozy Coupe Car

The Little Tikes Cozy Coupe Car has the standard yellow roof and red body, and it also sports the high seat back that people have come to expect. The side door opens and closes, and there is a storage compartment behind the seat that can hold your child's accessories for their journey.

The floor of the Coupe can be removed to allow your child to move it themselves, or you can put the floor in for safety and use the handle on the roof to push your child around. Little details like a gas cap and ignition key allow your child to feel like they are driving their first real car.

While this is a toy that anyone can appreciate, it is designed for children ages 18 months to five years. The current online retail price is $47.99, and that does not include shipping, handling or tax. The shipping weight for the Coupe is 18 pounds, so be sure to take care when lifting it after it arrives.

Detailed Features of the Little Tikes Cozy Coupe Car

The very first generation of the Cozy Coupe was a spartan toy that had very few interactive features. But the newer Coupes include features such as:

  • A steering wheel that turns, but does not guide the toy
  • A horn that beeps
  • A removable gas cap
  • An ignition key that turns
  • A parents push handle
  • A door that opens
  • A narrow four-tire wheel base that allows for easy movement
  • A high back seat
  • A removable floor
  • A storage compartment behind the seat

With all of the interactive features the Little Tikes Cozy Coupe Car has to offer, there are still many features that are just for show. Those features include:

  • A face that is not animated
  • Front and rear indicator lights that do not light up
  • Headlights that do not light up
  • Rear lights that do not light up
  • A rear license plate area that cannot be customized

With its interactive features and certain amount of limitations, the Cozy Coupe still remains one of the most popular toys for helping children to develop coordination and muscle control. It also acts as a child's stroller, thanks to the parent's push handle in the roof.

The Cozy Coupe is for outdoor use, and it does require some assembly. But it does not require any ongoing assembly or adjustment once your child starts using it. If your child would like to customize their Cozy Coupe, there is plenty of open space all around the exterior and interior of the ride-on toy for stickers and decals.
