Little Tikes Cozy Coupe

Cozy Coupe Is a Blast From the Past at 30 Years Old

Before they are able to walk, children look for their first set of wheels. Many kids' vehicle of choice in the past 30 years has been the Little Tikes Cozy Coupe ($75).  First introduced in 1979, the candy apple red and sunshine yellow sports car hasn't changed much in those three decades.  While the exterior has slowly evolved into a cartoon-faced front grill, the interior has retained its bench-style seat and easy-to-maneuver steering wheel.  In this age of earth-friendly automobiles, the car remains powered by lil ones' feet.  The simple style and classic look of the coach has made the Cozy Coupe the most popular car in America – selling 457,000 units in 2008 and beating out all other US car sales (including Toyota, Honda and Ford).

Take a look at the Cozy Coupe's evolution and tell us which model you or your children made memories in.

I didn't have one as a child, but my daughter had the pink and purple version and loved it.

I still love this car! I held out on buying one for my daughter but may have to invest in one now that I've got a new one around.

I remember riding around in the first model when I was little!! My sister and cousins and I always fought over it and could ride in that thing forever!

My older two each had one of these and they got endless ours of enjoyment out of them. And man, are they ever sturdy. I don't like the addition of the eyes though.
