I have been thinking a while on a replacement decal for the Little Tikes Classic Pick up Truck. The body design doesn’t feel finished without it. So I created two designs. I can customize them as well.

Removing the old decals is a bit of work, but well worth the effort. I have a more detailed instructions on removing decals here. Once the old ones are going you can do so much to change the car. You can repaint it, or add new decals. I sell new decals for most of the Little Tikes foot to floor cars on Ebay, and Etsy. For this particular Cozy Coupe Makeover, I used my set here. But I have lots of other styles that would look nice on this cozy coupe without having to repaint it.

How to Fix Little Tikes Cozy Coupe Steering Wheel

 

Here is a quick overview of how to replace a steering wheel on the Little Tikes Cozy Coupes.  For the purposes of this post, I am using a 1990s Little Tikes Cozy Coupe. I will add measurements in the future to be sure that this can be used for other car replacments.

Little Tikes Cozy Coupe Steering Wheel Replacement Parts and where they go
Little Tikes Cozy Coupe Steering Wheel Replacement 2

The basic set-up is simple. There is the steering wheel, a washer, and a steering wheel clip. All your car needs is the right size of hole, both in diameter, and in depth. I am pretty sure you could modify the replacement parts to fit different dimensions though. That will have to wait for another post. 🙂

So the steering wheel clip slides into the bottom of the steering wheel, with the “Y” end up. Push it up until the clip ends pop out of the holes in the tube.

Put the steering wheel into the hole, and underneath, before it goes through the other side, hold the washer on the underside of the hole, and thread the washer and the otherside of the hole onto the bottom tube of the steering wheel. The washer will slide upwards and over the two nobs that are expsoed from the steering wheel clip inside the steering wheel. If you need to take it off again, push in the two exposed clips and let the washer slide back down the tube again.

I will get the dimensions and add to this post as soon as I can.

How To Restore a Little Tikes Football Toy Box. These have been around since the 1970s, and are still going strong. Usually the only thing missing is the decals to restore them to like new condition. I sell replacement decals for it (HERE), and here are some tips on applying them.

Remove the Old Decals First

How To Restore a Little Tikes Football Toy Box : Rubbing Alcohol

First remove the old decals, by pulling them off, as much as possible. Then you can use rubbing alcohol to move all the glue residue. If you leave some of the residue on, it will show underneath as lumps.  Also be sure to wash off the rubbing alcohol before applying as it will weaken the adhesive.

How To Restore a Little Tikes Football Toy Box:

Apply The New Decals

 

Once it is clean, dry and smooth, apply the stripe decals, starting from the front, lining them up to the front outside indent. And removing the backing as you move from the front to the back, smoothing out the creases, and any air bubbles as you go along.
