Fun Facts about Cozy Coupes

The Orginal Cozy Coupe Circa 1979

Here are a few fun facts about the Crazy Coupe by Little Tikes…

Did you know that the cozy coupe had been around since 1979? That is right… this adorable plastic mobile was created forty years ago and its popularity is still going strong! It was designed by Jim Mariol, a former car-parts designer for Chrysler. I can see now why it works so well!

The car’s design has been described as a cross between a Volkswagen Beetle and Fred Flintstone‘s vehicle. It was a simple plastic molded car that was designed to be used with foot power and no pedals were implemented.

According to NPR, “in 2009 while Chrysler and GM struggle through bankruptcy, there’s another American automaker that’s doing quite well, thank you. Little Tikes is based in Hudson, Ohio, and despite the recession, demand for the company’s Cozy Coupes has shown no signs of a slowdown.” That is just incredible when you see statistics like this.

The 30th anniversary cozy coupe available now even has a cupholder for the kids and a handle on the back for parents to guide the coupe when the kids are learning. The floorboard is removable, too!

Where to Buy a Cozy Coupe

You can find a new Little Tikes cozy coupe in lots of places these days. They sell them in store and online at places like Target and Walmart. You can even order them online at Amazon. You can get several models that are gender specific, too like this princess cozy coupe.

If you are planning to make over a cozy coupe, check out your local Goodwill or thrift store. So many people donate these cars and they are easy to spot right when you walk in.

If you have any children’s consignment sales in your area, these are fabulous spots to pick one up. Just make sure that the wheels are in great working condition and the plastic is in good shape, as well.

Better yet…garage sale season is right around the corner! Get to them nice and early and you may be able to score a used one for next to nothing!

You can even purchase vinyl kits on Etsy where you can makeover your own coupe with paint and just add the vinyl stickers. Check out this awesome Ghostbusters Cozy Coupe here…

We purchased a used cozy coupe on a for sale group on Facebook. It lasted through two little ones and was still in great condition when we donated it to our local thrift store.

I wish that we would have done a makeover before we donated it, but I’m hoping it has been well loved since then by another family.
