Question about Toys

3 Answers

I have two Little Tikes 6 volt battery operated riding toys that were probably purchased in the 1980's (Cruiser motorcycle/bike and 4505 Railroad). Since then, the electrical connection on present day 6 volt batteries has been changed to a different style that will not connect to these older toys. Is there an adaptor available to solve this problem? Or are there present day connectors that can be rewired onto the toys? The battery charger also had a different type of connection. Little Tikes no longer provides information on these models.

We need to get an new engine.. where would we order this? we have the 4505 railroad... or where could we take this to get it repaired?
my husband took it apart and checked all the connections... it runs, but drags and doesn't have enough power... then it stops.. it worked for a little bit when we hooked it up, but it never really had the oomph it should have had.... seems like it's just worn out...

I have the Little Tikes train 4505 and need a battery, charger and a new connector to the battery. Where can I find these parts or is there another way to fix these problems?

Janice We also have a little tikes train circa 1980's that we would would llike to get running for our grandson. I have ordered a battery from Apex I believe that The Elpower EP695 battery should work. It is the right dimensions and is a 13 Amp hour battery vs the 9.5 amp hour that was installed. We do not have the connectors for the cars and wonder how they connect together. Could take a photo of the car connectors and post it so that we would have an idea of what we are looking for. Thanks

I have a little tikes 451 K Hummer h2 riding toy,

Hi Susie,

There are several options available.

There are numerous new chain stores popping up that specialize in batteries only. Batteries Plus, Batteries Only, etc.

These type batteries are usually sealed lead acid. So another alternative is an auto parts store for a motorcycle battery or a lawn garden dept, for a riding mower battery.

Just bring the old one with you to get the size right. You want to make sure it fits and the terminals should match.

Best regards

they provide the push nuts with the wheels
