Datsun Baby was an “automobile for children” in a Kodomonokuni park, inaugurated in 1965 in Yokohama city. Nissan designed Datsun Baby based on “Cony Guppy” of Aichi Machine Industry, manufactured 100 units mostly by hand work, and donated them to provide children with knowledge about automobiles and promote road safety.

Despite a children's car, it was a real automobile with highly technological structures such as a gasoline engine at midship, torque converter AT with 2 pedals and 4-wheel independent suspension. It was also equipped with the speed limiter that cut off the engine at 30km/h.

This car is No.100 that was restored by Nissan Restoration Club in 2014 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the park.
