About Little Tikes - Articles Surfing
Founded in 1970 Little Tikes drove its Cozy Coupe to stardom to become one of the premier international manufacturers of children's products. From ride on toys and toy boxes to outdoor play sets, Little Tikes offers a full range of products for children.
For infants from birth to 12 months, baby toys rank high on parent's list when shopping http://littletikes.com and as their children grow older, the toddler toys also become an important part of their lives. Toddler beds patterned after popular characters are popular with the kids as well as their parents. The toy manufacturer's reputation for quality keeps it a favorite for preschool toys as well.
Many of the Little Tikes products are designed to spark the child's imagination such as developmental toys designed for a specific age group. Children's playhouses are also some of the best sets made for use in a private yard setting and not for commercial use. Bath toys are designed for different age groups as well, and inflatable toys can be used by younger children as they are considered softer than the playhouses made of harder plastic.
How long a Little Tikes product will last will depend on a number of factors such as the number of children playing on it, the weather in the area and how it is stored. Keeping it clean will help its longevity and all Little Tikes products can be cleaned with mild detergent and hot water and a soft brush. If there is metal hardware such as screws or nut and bolts used in the construction, you should inspect them occasionally to insure they are not working loose.
If you live in an area where bees may be a problem, you will want to contact a local exterminator and explain that you have a child's toy made of polyethylene plastic. Knowing this they can find a way to discourage the insects from building a home in the playhouse. Depending on the type of clothing being worn, children have been know to build up static electricity while playing in or on the plastic playhouses. To minimize the potential for shock, wipe the set down with a fabric softener sheet or a solution of half water and half fabric softener.
While Little Tikes playhouses are designed for outdoor use and storage, in areas with extremely cold weather the plastic can become weak due to low temperatures. If possible, they should be stored in a garage or shed. Additionally, while ultraviolet protection is built into every Little Tikes product, they are fade resistant and not fade proof. Over time, a product left exposed to the sun will begin to fade and although the colors will become lighter, it has no effect on the integrity of the product at all.
