The ever popular Little Tikes Cozy Coupe celebrates 30 years

We probably all know this little candy apple red plastic car at first sight. My daughter has one, most of her friends have one and in 2008 it topped  US car sales selling 457,000 units – beating out the Camry and Accord. Impressive.

This year, the Little Tikes Cozy Coupe is celebrating 30 years and one of the first Cozy Coupes to be manufactured in 1979 has just been inducted into the Crawford Auto-Aviation Museum in Cleveland, Ohio in the US.

If you don’t already know this kiddies’ car in and out, here’s a rundown of its features: bucket style seat, opening car door, steering wheel with horn and a storage area in the back. All this while being powered simply by our kidlet’s little feet. However, I think the most amazing feature of this car is how indestructible it is. It will withstand any and all hard knocks for years of wheeling enjoyment.

If you have yet to discover the greatest toy car of all time, you can purchase a Little Tikes Cozy Coupe from most toy shops and at numerous places online.
