Vehicle Mashups

The Toy Super Highway

Have you ever thought of adult-sizing your favorite childhood toy? Read about John Bitmead and how he made a life-sized version of his favorite toy, and then took it for a spin…on the highway. He’s not the only one making cool, toy-esque vehicles. Take a gander below and see if there’s something you’d be interested in driving away in.

Do you know what the most disappointing thing about being an adult is? It’s not the slow metabolism or the achy joints or the plateau of growth, it’s the fact that we’re all failures to our childhood selves. We don’t eat candy, we don’t play with toys and we drive responsible vehicles. Not John Bitmead though, he’s the type of full-fledged adult who wouldn’t disappoint his childhood self because he made a street legal Little Tikes Car that can zoom up to 70mph.

It’s a very impressive machine. Bitmead spent over 1000 hours and nearly $7000 building this out and he tried to stay as true as possible to the iconic Little Tikes Car, meaning there aren’t any windows or windshield. BBC took the car for a spin and you can see that it drives pretty well. How do you think it compares to the toy car?

Very Cute Tiny Green Pea Car… Created evidently in 2005 for a Birds Eye Peas TV commercial, this delightful little car 75415d4fa8ebb844bfa1fee446548b03was custom made by Asylum Models and Effects in the UK. It’s chassis’s from a go-cart, the headlights from a VW Beetle, the indicators are Lancia, the engine is Honda. The rest is bespoke. And this sweet little pea looks as fresh and tempting as the day it was shelled.
