CLEVELAND (AP) – A classic toy car is being inducted into an auto museum in Cleveland.

The Cozy Coupe, a plastic cherry-red sports car, allows toddlers to sit on a bench-style seat and poke their legs through to the ground. When they start walking, the car begins to go.

On Saturday, it will take its place next to historically significant automobiles at the Crawford Auto-Aviation Museum.

The museum will house one of the first Cozy Coupes to come off the production line in 1979.

The Cozy Coupe is made by The Little Tikes Co. in Hudson, Ohio. The company says it has sold more than 10 million of the cars in its 30-year history.
