Scaling down with the Tesla Model S for KidsOur littlest editor gives us his take on Radio Flyer's latest powered creation, a miniaturized version of Tesla's ubiquitous electric sedan.
[MUSIC] Tesla's Model S is a great car. Stacked, it's pretty and it's nearly silent. Sadly, its high price means it's off limits to a great many buyers. Tesla, of course, knows this and to attract new markets, it's trying to hook them while they're young, or in this case very young. Hey, nice wheels. Same to you. That thing get you attention on the playground? Yeah, I all right. As you can see, Radio Flyer has done an uncanny job replicating Tesla's model S on a much smaller scale. The Tesla Model S for kids has real working headlights, turbine style rims, and the body features actual paint with real Model S color options. Much like it's counter part, the big guy here The Tesla Model S for kids is entirely electric relying on a lithium ion battery. You can charge it by either plugging in the charge port and connecting this to the wall, or you can remove the battery and plug it into the wall separately. If you happen to have a second battery, you can pop the first one out, pop the second one in, minimize your down time. Radio Flyer's removable battery will charge in just three hours, and the company claims it will last three times longer than your averaged powered wheeled contraption I can't legally say the name of. [MUSIC] But like the Model S, this miniatured Marion features a front trunk or frunk, large enough to fit important things like stuffed animal. The Model S for kids doesn't have a 17 inch touch screen, not quite sure where you'd fit it but it does include a 3 1/2 mm jack so you can plug in your smart device in he car's sound system. Yes! It has a sound system. We'll let your kids rock out for their favorite music. That's my jam! With the mode switch set to one, the Tesla Model S for kids pumps out a top speed of three miles per hour, which is meant for beginners. But like Tesla's ludicrous mode, the Model S for kids has a speedy trick up its sleeve, as well. Flip the mode switch to two, and the top speed doubles, six. I go fast. [MUSIC] The Tesla Model S for kids can be shipped directly to your home and some folks who pre-ordered are already receiving theirs. Our editor in small quite enjoyed his ride in it. Thankfully he's not my child, so the poor cameraman will be the one forced to shell out 500 bucks for this bad boy. Just take my money. All right. [MUSIC]
