Mother Creates Mini DeLorean to Travel Back to the Future


As children of the ’80’s continue to have children of their own, it’s only appropriate that the toys reflect those rad times when high top sneakers, Nintendo, and big hair were totally in style. With a love for both cars and Back to the Future, clever mom corey4281 created this DeLorean Push Car for her 1-year-old son Cooper, who already had the matching red vest.

The original inspiration came from a Marty McFly-related comment from her husband and the idea grew into reality from there. To create the mini time machine, corey4281 used a toy push car covered in cardboard, tape, paint, and a little bit of EL wire lighting. The final result is the perfect Halloween costume, both totally awesome and completely functional. She says, “What better way to tote my 1 year old son around on Halloween than in a transformed $25 Step 2 push car I bought off of the kids’ sale aisle at work?”
