Real-life Little Tikes car

If you didn’t have the iconic, bright red and yellow Little Tikes car when you were a kid, you probably knew someone who did. At least, if you’re under 35.

This writer didn’t have one, but whenever I managed to nab a friend’s, I scooted round imagining I was out on the open road, with the world whizzing by.

Car customiser extraordinaire John Bitmead has made the dream a reality by building a full-size, road legal Little Tikes car.

Tall Tim went to meet John and live out my childhood dream.
