We chose the Cozy Truck for my daughter's second birthday. NO, I didn't want the pink one with eye lashes just because she is a girl. Both of my daughters, 2 and 6, can drive. Usually whoever isn't driving rides in the trunk. Haha! Our 6 year old is tall and it's not easy to get both legs through the door but she fits fine height wise and can scoot it around fine. Here's our pro/con list and how we came to our decision to purchase this toy. PROs: - Sturdy and can take rough play for years - Great for indoor AND outdoor play - Has a door that opens (some ride-on toys the child just climbs into without a door) - Has a SUPER COOL trunk! Probably my favorite feature. - The trunk acts like a seat for another kid, and thus far, it hasn't tipped over. - Truck horn feature - Bigger tires with ridges so we're hoping it would give more traction outside on grass - Sits higher and the roof is taller so my 6 year old daughter could get in. While I realize this is not for her age so much, all parents know your other kids WILL try to use it. I didn't need her crying every time she got stuck! CONs: - I hate the face. Why can't it look like a truck!? Not everything needs a face just because it's for a child! - The eyes of the face sit about 4 inches high, right in the front "windshield" so my 2 year old can't see! Annoying. She bumps into stuff and run things over a lot - The door is a little difficult to close - The trunk is VERY difficult to close, even for me. We found the sweet spot to push on that makes it easier but my 2 year old still gets frustrated. - THE FACE! It's just so in the way and unnecessary that it deserves to be on the con list multiple times. Overall, I would definitely recommend getting the Cozy Truck over the Cozy Coupe JUST for the trunk alone. All the other features are bonuses. And apparently you can leave off the eyes, but my husband couldn't bear to leave a piece off the finished product. Bleck. Oh! He assembled it in about 45 min, decals and all.
I've only had this for about two hours, but I just wanted to write a review regarding the assembly, for those who might be reading this before buying. It was NOT that hard to assemble. There is a lot of exaggeration on the other reviews -- most difficult awful thing ever to assemble? Requiring physical strength that left you aching? Took hours and hours to assemble? That just wasn't my experience. Some things to keep in mind: Pay attention to the pictures in the instruction booklet, particularly when it comes to how the assembler's hands are oriented. Watch the video (I couldn't find it here but googled "Cozy Coupe Video" and it was the first one to pop up) if you're super visual. I had a hard time with the roof supports at first too, until I realized when the instructions said "pull towards you, then push" that I had to be on the side of the roof, not behind it. Once I reoriented myself, it was done in like 30 seconds. So yeah, it would be nice if the instructions were more clear, but that goes for pretty much everything in the world that requires assembly. Also, there is text in the instruction booklet, despite some other reviews. It is a little annoying that you need to have a power drill, but I think they do indicate that on the box, so you really can't blame them for that, either. Anyway, if you don't have one, just borrow one from a neighbor. The car is super cute and my 1-year-old really enjoyed being pushed around the house in it. We're looking forward to taking it for a test run outside soon.
some assembly required.... Once you get last how long it takes to put together it really is an amazing product! My son LOVES it!!!! I love that you can either have the handle in the front to pull it or in the back to push it. Very lightweight. #TeamLittleTikes
