Beep beep! Swap your plastic Cozy Coupe for the first Lithium Ion battery-powered ride-on for children.
Little Tikes ain’t got nothing on Tesla: Radio Flyer is now accepting pre-orders for a $ 499 Model S for kids.
Swap your plastic Cozy Coupe for the first lithium-ion battery-powered ride-on for children.
A miniaturized version of the $ 70,000 vehicle, Radio Flyer’s Model S for Kids comes with working headlights, a frunk (front trunk organizer box), forward/reverse capability, and a sound system.
It can also be fully customized with authentic paint colors and accessories: Match your kid’s car to your own in black, blue, or red, and choose between matte black finish wheels (included) or painted silver wheels (a $ 15 upgrade).
Radio Flyer’s Flight Speed batteries are built to provide high performance and low environmental impact. One standard 140 Wh battery is included, for easy switching between a top speed of 6mph and a parent-limited speed of 3mph. Upgrade to the premium 190 Wh battery for 50 percent more play time per charge—and $ 50 added to your bill.
Radio Flyer also offers spare standard and premium batteries for $ 100 and $ 150, respectively.
Additional accessories include an indoor car cover ($ 50), personalized license place (up to eight characters, for $ 15), and a personalized parking sign (up to 10 characters, for $ 25).
Neither Tesla nor Radio Flyer immediately responded to PCMag’s request for comment. The tiny luxury car starts shipping in May.
