Happy Hump Day, friends! I hope you are having a wonderful week so far! We are thrilled the sun finally came out today after three long days! So, this afternoon we are going to take our grandson for a spin in his Little Tikes Roadster! Come see how cute this is!
A few months ago one of my sweet neighbors advertised on our neighborhood Facebook Page a free Little Tikes Roadster. It looked so cute, so I asked for it for our adorable grandson. The neighbor said it had been well loved and needed some cleaning but otherwise was in great shape.
So, I got it and proceeded to give it a thorough cleaning. I washed the car inside and out and upside down with a strong cleaner and used a brush to get in the crevices. Lacey tried to help.
Once cleaned and disinfected (because of our current Covid mindset) our grandson fell in love with his new little ride! When we first gave it to him he was about 9 months old, so he was able to sit alone very well. And, the car has an adjustable seat belt for safety. He likes to steer and beep the horn as he drives along. Sometimes he puts it on cruise control and goes hands-free.
We decided to keep the car at our house because we keep him once a week and we wanted something fun for him to do outdoors while he’s here. And every time he sees the car he gets so excited! So, we just bundle him up and off we go. Sometimes we go off road…
And sometimes when the weather doesn’t cooperate with us and it rains for 3 days straight, we bring the car inside. We’ll do anything for this sweet little guy!
So, in case you’re interested in one of these cute little vehicles for a little one on your list, these roasters retail for about $65 at Walmart or Target. It’s official name is the “Little Tikes Deluxe 2 in 1 Cozy Roadster. The new ones have a detachable sun roof and back rest for added protection. Ours didn’t come with one, which is fine. I mean, free is free, right?
I also learned that you can move the handle from the back to the front and pull the car like a wagon. However, we like it on the back so our grandson can better see where he’s going.
I had never seen one of these toys until my neighbor was giving it away, so I didn’t even know to look for one. This little car has provided hours of entertainment for our precious grandson already! So, if you think some little one you love would like one too, be sure to check out Facebook Marketplace and search for “Little Tikes Roadster” and you may get lucky and score one for much less than retail. Later guys! Someone’s gotta go! Beep Beep!
Thanks for stopping by! Much love, Dell
