Upcycling Little Tikes: 13 Ways to Pimp Your Cozy Coupe

pimp your cozy coupe, upcycle your little tikesBy far, the best selling items at consignment sales are outdoor toys & ride-ons like the classic Cozy Coupe.  The classic Little Tikes car is over 30 years old and was the top-selling North American car in 2009 (according to Almighty Dad) That year, Cozy Coupe sales even beat out the Toyota Camry!   And though it doesn't have break-downs like a 30-year old "real car" might, these toys are often prone to weathering and fade.  Plastic sun-fade can make an otherwise "like-new" toy look a little older than its years. 


  • TIP: To prevent sun-fade, rub down your Cozy Coupe (or other plastic outdoors toys) with a little baby oil.  It's like Little Tikes sunscreen! 
 
Some ConsignmentMommies are adding value to these in-demand toys - making their resale-able coupes stand out from the pack!  A fixed coupe will most definitely fetch a higher price at a sale... and let's face it, you'll have some fun crafting your way to more $$$!!!

If you find a car that just needs a little TLC or if you are one of those SUPER crafty mamas that is buying them to resell, here are 13 adorable projects using outdoor ride-ons.
