Adult-sized Little Tikes car hits the road

The first set of wheels for many kids was the classic Little Tikes toy car.

The plastic car’s red and yellow exterior and foot-to-floor driving power got a super-sized makeover thanks to a man in the United Kingdom.

Grown-ups can relive their childhood in an adult-size replica of the Little Tikes toy car. It runs on gas, can go up to 70 mph, has airbags and is worth $33,000, according to maker John Bitmead. He and his brother constructed the car and put it up for auction on eBay last week.

Unfortunately, nostalgic memories weren’t worth the high price tag. The eBay listing was removed Wednesday after the highest bidders offered roughly 6,000 pounds less than the asking price, the BBC reports.

The car is off the market “for the time being” – no word on if the brothers will someday re-list it.
