Beginners Buying Guide: Little Tikes Cozy Coupe

Buying presents for youngsters can be quite a challenge if you are not familiar with the current trend of toys and games available in today’s market. One brand you can’t really go wrong with is the Little Tikes company, especially the Little Tikes Cozy Coupe line! With a history of toy manufacturing which extends back to the 1960’s, their ideology of safe and child friendly toys has produced a range of very successful and popular toys.

The concern of the majority of parents is that they do not need to worry about the safety of their kids when playing – the amount of recalls, choking incidents on the news and playground accidents is enough to make any parent a bit apprehensive when another person gives a gift to their youngster.

The good thing about the Little Tikes Cozy Coupe range is that safety is a huge factor in the design of all their products, whether it is their coupe cars, swing sets, playhouses or one of their smaller kits. All packages will come with detailed instructions on how to assemble each kit and what age range it is suitable for, so as long as you take a little time to read the side of the box before you purchase a potential present you should be able to get a toy which is safe for the age group of your receiver.

Once you are sure you have a safe product, you may want to just check if it is made for girls or boys (this can be a big sticking point with children for some reason!). Usually there is a large difference between the two, as manufacturers will design packaging to appeal to the gender in questions to appeal to ‘nag power.’ If a child can associate with a product, then they will put in their best performance to convince their parent to buy it for them at whatever the cost. Little Tikes Cozy Coupe products are split into products which will appeal to both boys and girls, and have many toys which can be used by both, such as their playhouse and swing sets.

Whatever you choose to buy, try and think from a parent’s perspective and purchase a present which looks both fun and interesting while being safe and low risk to the kid’s safety and avoids any possible health hazards, such as small assembly pieces, strings or sharp features.
