Stone-age vehicle beloved by toddlers outsells real cars!

PREHISTORY REPEATS ITSELF: The 2009 Cozy Coupe (left) and the original model.

This Saturday, the Little Tikes’ Cozy Coupe will be inducted into the Cleveland’s Crawford Auto-Aviation Museum hall of fame. The foot-powered Cozy Coupe—a shoddy, plastic reproduction of Fred Flintstone’s 7,000 B.C. Flintmobilesold 457,000 units in 2008, outperforming both the Toyota Camry and the Honda Accord. What this means: Sooner or later, your baby will predictably moan for a Cozy Coupe, at which point you have two choices:

1) Lazily follow the herd and cough up 49,95 for the basic model or, for insistently female children, the pinker Princess version;

2) Go that extra mile and build your offspring a real toddler-sized Fred Flintstones car (below), following instructions provided by an intimidatingy nerdy grandfather.


THE PERFECT BABY VERSION: Attempt this at home if you're insane.

Before you reject the all-too-common Cozy Coupe and start whittling, however, you might want to consider the safety issues raised in this video about Flintstonian Transportation:
