If you're a child of the 80s you may have owned a yellow and red 'Cozy Couple' Little Tikes car which you dreamed of peddling along the public roads of Ireland.

Now you can do one better - you can drive the roadworthy adult version on the public roads of Ireland and beyond.

It may not have any windows, which might prove problematic given our weather and the fact it's nearly Christmas, but it does reach speeds of up to 110km/h.

British mechanic John Bitmead and his brother Geoff from Attitude Autos made the car two years ago over 1000 hours at a cost of more than £4000.

It's built on the core of a Daewoo Matiz (which doesn't say much for the Daewoo Matiz) and it has just been put up for sale on eBay for £21,500 (30,000).

A bargain!
