Radio Flyer is introducing a kid-sized replica of the Tesla Model S which remains pretty much faithful to the real deal.

If your little one's birthday is coming up, perhaps the ideal gift is an introduction to the world of EVs through the all-electric Tesla Model S For Kids. It can be best described as a miniaturized edition of the adult version and is available with different battery sizes, just like the real Model S. As standard, the electric toy car has a 140-Wh lithium-ion battery, but for an extra $50 you can go for the 190-Wh premium battery pack which will obviously last longer.

The Tesla Model S For Kids is quite impressive as it comes with working headlights, trunk, and even a music player in the “spacious interior.” It has both forward and reverse gears and is available with a choice of three paints: Red Multi-Coat, Deep Blue Metallic, and Midnight Silver Metallic. Parents can set up the toy car’s top speed to either three or six miles per hour.

The base version will set you back $499 and the price will go all the way up to $804 for the range-topping model that comes bundled with an extra premium battery. Radio Flyer says shipping will kick off in May and the toy car is suitable for ages 3-8 and up to 81 pounds (37 kilograms).
