Little Tikes Police Car
Advantages: Great fun, durable, doesn't fade easily
Disadvantages: Fiddly to assemble - comes in a really big box
One of my sons were lucky enough to receive the Little Tikes Police Car for his Birthday a couple of years ago.
It's very similar to the popular Cosy Coupe by little Tikes, with it's bubble car shape and swing open door on one side to get in and out.
Our version of this car is in blue - it's now manufactured in black.
The car itself is a bubble shape, it has a moulded seat inside with a black steering wheel (this actually works) with a red squeaky hooter in the middle. It has a key that spins around and a walky talkie that requires a battery and makes noise when pressed. It has the police lights on the top which are decorative only.
One side of the car has a big swing open door, which makes it really easy to get in and out of the car, even for very little ones. I'm a big believer that lots of practice getting in and out of the car helps learn about balance and co-ordination when first learning to walk and move around.
It moves by scooting along with the feet, there's a nice big gap for feet to hang below the car. Very little ones might struggle with this and prefer just to sit and play with the steering wheel, hooter etc.
This car lasts! Its stayed outside in all weathers (not been protected by a shed) and after 2.5 years hasn't faded. The only thing that's effected is the electrical walkie talkie in the car - which has stopped working. Otherwise the steering and everything else works perfectly. It's certainly taken some knocks and hard going play from my active boys but is still in good order.
This was a total mission! We had to rope in our car mechanic brother in law to lend a hand, even he had to admit it wasn't an easy job. It came in a massive box but that was mainly due to the molded body, all the parts needed to be assembled. If this is a present I'd highly recommend assembling it first, otherwise you'll have an excited child bobbing around while you try to assemble - extra pressure and all that. I've dropped a Dooyoo star for this reason.
This car came from Toys R Us - it was a present from family. It's still available there and on Amazon for around £44.99.
