Whether it’s a basketball set, ride-on cars, a new water table or other outdoor toys, there’s something for every age available at Little Tikes. And below I have the list of all the best Little Tikes toys for 2023. But first a little bit about the popular brand that has been around since before many of our own childhoods!

What is Little Tikes?

Little Tikes is a toy brand that is now manufactured by MGA Entertainment. The brand was first founded in the late 1960’s by a plastics engineer who developed toys from high-impact polyethylene, a type of plastic that is break resistant. Known for its durable and safe plastic toys that are often cast in bright colors, Little Tikes helps to create memories while taking kids on big adventures in pretend play. Popular toys from this manufacturer include ride-on toys, playhouses, and outdoor toys, but have expanded over the years to include smaller toys that are for indoor use. Motor skills, both fine and gross motor, and helping kids to develop all levels of coordination are a big part this company. Along with fun of course!

Without a doubt the most iconic toy from Little Tikes is the Cozy Coupe. This red and yellow favorite foot push car is a favorite and oh, so well known.

Turtle Sandbox: This blast from the past has been around since the late 1970’s and while changes have been made over time, the main features of the sandbox have remained the same. The sandbox looks like a giant green turtle with a removeable lid shaped like a shell (to cover and protect the sand from rain) and two built in seats.

Plastic Rocking Horse: The Little Tikes Rocking Horse has been enjoyed by generations. Sold in bright, fun colors and sometimes even in different animals, it features a simple design that promotes imaginative play, balance, and coordination all at the same time. A tall back and wide base (to help prevent tipping over) makes this rocking horse a favorite among parents.
