What It’s All About

Back in September last year @jamieDMJ AKA “Adam Jennings” circulated a spoof letter from his twitter account claiming that we had refused to buy his Tike.

In fact, he got so excited about sending a letter to himself that he completely forgot to ask us if we actually wanted the car and guess what – we did!

Now we’re not saying that we were experts in buying toy cars, but we just couldn’t get enough of those Tikes – their red and yellow bodywork, zero carbon emissions and pedal power just made us happy.

We couldn’t stand the idea of unloved Tikes covered in cobwebs in garages across the UK. So we staged a Tike amnesty, and offered to buy the first 100 Tikes in good working order (must have two doors, a roof, pedals and no floor) that were presented to our branches in Glasgow South, Manchester (Trafford Branch), Leeds Central, Birmingham North and London (Wimbledon).

We paid a tenner for each Tike we received and gave all of the money – £1,000 in total – to road safety charity Brake.
