You might have tried this car out in a public playground or amusement park and there is no doubt about this being one of the ride-on toys that gets the most attention by little kids. Already around the first birthday the Little Tikes Cozy Coupe will be much appreciated and it can be used indoors as well as outside. This Little Tikes Cozy Coupe Car will give you some of the pros and cons of the car and also let you know what people who bought it said.
Let’s start this Little Tikes Cozy Coupe review by having a look at the assembly of the car. You might have read some reviews of the Cozy Coupe saying that it is hard to put together. There are people who find anything from IKEA or toys in a box in parts hard to assemble. (Expertmom is one of them!) However, the Cozy Coupe is not one of the hardest things to figure out. The key to success is to read the instructions before you start.
The pieces come in a box and if you just take a look at the instruction sheet that comes along you should be able to assemble it. Or you can just do what Expertmom does and call for someone that likes to screw things together for the job and just have a nice cold drink while watching the car take shape!
Another important note: Only open the box when your kid is not there for calm and methodic assembly!
Safety is another issue that is highly important to consider when you are buying toy rides for small children. The advantage of the Little Tikes Cozy Coupe 30th Anniversary Car is that it is very sturdy. It stands on 4 wheels and your little one will have to work hard to push it over. Even if this for some reason happens the car is constructed in a way that holds the child safely. It is easiest to drive the car inside or on a smooth area and that is a blessing for safety. Your kid will not be able to get far with it on a grassy slope so the Cozy Coupe can be seen as a safe choice of toy for toddlers.
If you assemble the Cozy Coupe correctly you are looking at a car that can last a very long time. Just think about the fact that this is one of the most popular toys in amusement parks and play rooms where you pay to use it. Even with hundreds of kids riding on it all day long it stays intact so your child will have to be very effective to make it come apart. It is a toy that you can pass on.
People who have used the Cozy Coupe on regular floors and smooth surfaces have seen long durability but those who let it go through tougher terrain saw parts coming off slowly and eventually even had wheels come off. With this it should be obvious that you need to consider where you use your Cozy Coupe if you want to see it last a long time!
Suitable for Ages…
You can get the Little Tikes Cozy Coupe 30th Anniversary Car for 1 year and up but around 2 years old is the time when the child will enjoy it the most. The car moves forward by the legs of the child and most children find the door a lot of fun since it works just like on a regular car (in their eyes!) Kids usually enjoy rides like this till around age 5-6 when it starts to lose its magic for rides with pedals or power.
