Ian and Emily Pfaff were sifting through a pile of old baby toys and products when inspiration hit. After recently receiving a hand-me-down Cozy Coupe toy car from a friend, the creative couple decided to use the old toys - and a box of other old junk - to create steampunk cars inspired by the dystopian movie Mad Max for their two little ones.
In an interview with HuffPost, Ian explained, "The Road Warrior is one of my favorite movies and my mind was blown by Fury Road," adding, "I just love that aesthetic. I had a Little Tikes car and a box full of junk. I just connected the dots and made some baby Mad Max Mobiles."
Using the first Cozy Coupe he received, Ian created a car for his 2-year-old daughter, Junior, using an old breast pump and other junk. Meanwhile, Emily made Junior a matching ensemble and sippy cup to fit the part. Months later, Ian and Emily picked up another Cozy Coupe and tricked that one out for their 5-month-old son, Benji. For Benji's vehicle, they used parts from a broken printer and leaf blower.
Although Benji is too young to understand the hilarity of the situation, Junior seems to be quite pleased with her cool new toy. Ian said, "We've caught her kissing the skull on the steering wheel a couple of times."
