AMERICA—Touting the product as a must have for kids all over the country, Little Tikes unveiled a new toy car Thursday equipped with seatbelt extenders along with many other plus sized amenities.
“Just in time for Christmas, it is my pleasure to announce the Cozy Roadster Type 2, redesigned with double the interior space as our previous model and 3 additional feet of seatbelt to strap your child in,” Little Tikes spokesman Frederic Sims said, highlighting the new hydraulic suspension system that supports up to 450 pounds.
“The new motorized engine will not only help haul your quarter ton 3-year-old up a slight incline, but also keep them involved in games of tag without the fear of being rushed to the E.R. for a triple bypass,” Sims went on, pointing out the addition of fun, educational voice prompts like “breathe between bites” and “the wrapper isn’t a napkin.”
The product was reportedly recalled after more than a dozen children went into cardiac arrest while attempting to turn the wheel.
