Cruising Together

Cruising Together
Aww, another Cozy Coupe redo, I just can’t get enough.  They are such well-built toys, and they’ve been around for so long, you’d think that Little Tykes could figure out a way to make the plastic less fade-able by now.  Oh well, that leaves more room for the creativity of people like us!  Or, I should say people like Sarah, who added all kinds of fun doodles and personalization and color to her daughter’s car, whereas I would have probably panicked in the paint aisle and picked yellow and red.  Er, it’s classic, right?
Thanks Sarah!

    Adorable is the word that keeps coming to my mind for this little car. It is so adorable!

    I love these little cars. If no one is small enough to use them, I think you could sit a nice tidal wave petunia in them. That’s what I’m doing next year, and maybe I will try that paint job too. Really nice!

    Just wanted to note that I copied this link and posted it on facebook to share.
    But when it came up, it just said the title, the first picture, and the description was an add for GlassesUSA! I don’t know what thats about, but hopefully it can be fixed 🙂

    PS: my friends are asking what kind of paint this is! Does Sarah have a blog post about it? We need to find out! Its just so cute!

    If I could fit inside, and I’m sure I could if I put my mind to it, I would. And I’d drive proudly to the market next door waving like a princess. I love this!

    Hi- this is Sarah. I don’t have a blog but I can give you a quick run down of how I did the decorations.
    I spray painted the background color (the two shades of green for the car and the top was done in a light blue.) Then I drew out the design with pencil and used Sharpie Paint Markers (the oil based ones) and colored in and outlined the shapes. It was pretty easy and fun. I have not sprayed a sealer yet but I will because of the Arizona sun. Hope this helps and thanks for the nice comments!

    Too cute! I have one good Cozy Coupe and one faded one. I might have to try this on the faded one.

    Do you remember what brand of paint you used? Krylon makes a paint specifically for this kind of thing, but it pretty much only comes in bright/primary colors. Rustoleum has the colors I want, but the can has a disclaimer saying it may not work on Little Tikes… Help!
