As a mother, I find that older toys last longer, and inspire my children’s imagination so much better then most of the newer toys out there today. We currently live in the age of planned obsolescence, where products are designed to fail after a certain period of time, it increases profits, but it is important to think about the legacy, that practice, leaves behind in our landfills. This is my way to help deal with that problem. Let’s fix up and restore these old toys, and make them new again for a future generation. And let’s support companies that produce quality products, like Little Tikes. If we, the consumer, demand quality, long lasting toys, we will once again get it.

We just picked up a 57 Chevy that I think is a Little Tikes. It only has one wheel cover and has no headlights. Is there any source for these parts? I had never seen this car before. My daughter had the Model T in purple over 30 yrs ago.
I am not sure, could you send me a picture? Melissa@thetoyrestore.com If I don’t know what it is, I can send you in the right direction to find out.
