Couldn't wait to get it!! My 16 mo old son loves his CozyCoupe! He likes it with or without the floorboard in it. It was a little hard to put together, but well worth the effort!

Not a day goes by that he doesn't get in it! We have it inside right now, but plan on taking it outside very soon as the weather gets warmer. MomW1ontheway, April 23, My granddaughter loves her new car she is going places now. It keeps her busy for well over an hour at a time.

Open and shut the door get in,get out. Put things in the car take things out of the car push the car ride in the car she is 20 months old but with her new car she is a big girl. Sadielouhoo, August 29, Intructions could be more detailed. Weasel, March 10, This was bought for my 18 month old by his "mawmaw. We were so excited to buy this for our daughter's birthday! Her face just lit up when we showed it to her and she loves riding in it! Can't wait to take her outside this summer!

It's more compact than the older models but def seems to hold up and drives well too! I am very savvy on assembly of toys and other products. This unit is very hard to assemble. The instructions are vague. A simple written insert would help a lot. The difficult part is the top and front wheels. You have to be sure to get the wheels on the correct side. This is apperantly a problem. My unit had two extra wheel fasteners in case you had to remove the wheels to put them on the correct side which I did.

The front struts of the top are supposed to snap into place. They were very hard to attach. However this is what makes the car sturdy. The smile on my grandsons' face was worth all the frustration.

I expect this car will last a long time. The handle on the top makes it easy to push the car around for those little ones who can' quite motivate it by themselves.

Not like the original but it works. My kid is happy enough having her own Cozy Coupe now, but she definitely prefers the old-fashioned one original cozy coupe to this new cartoony version. The eyeballs are dumb and serve no point. The front roof supports are too wide.
