Radio Flyer maker of the Tesla Model S for Kids has sent exclusive invitations to its upcoming test drive event where parents will have the opportunity to put their children behind the wheel of a fully-functioning scale model of Tesla’s electric sedan.
To true Tesla fashion, the event is by invitation only bringing to it an air of exclusivity to those witnessing the unveiling of “the newest addition to the Tesla family”. According to the email sent to reservation holders of Radio Flyer’s mini-Tesla, children in attendance will be able to test drive the Model S for Kids on an actual test track. The invitation reads:
“your little one will have the chance to experience the Tesla Model S by Radio Flyer in our mini-test drive track alongside future owners and likeminded enthusiasts. Following their drive, we welcome you to join us in the store for light bites and Tesla talk.”
Designed in collaboration with Tesla and endorsed by Tesla CEO Elon Musk himself, Radio Flyer saw strong demand when it first opened pre-orders of its Tesla Model S for Kids back in February of this year. It subsequently sold out of its first batch of vehicles that slated for deliveries this month.

The starting price of $499 which can approach near $700 when fully optioned with the additional battery pack, car cover, and personalized license plate hasn’t stopped parents from exposing their little ones to the joys of electric vehicle ownership.
