What can I say? It is really a good time to be alive as kids… that’s if the kids have fairly rich parents. At 315 English pounds (US$398), the McLaren 720S Ride-On Toy costs just a fraction of an actual road-going McLaren 720S and a steal for a 720S even as a (super) kiddie ride. It is the second such replica for kids from McLaren since after the P1 that debuted 3 years ago.
Available in a choice of color schemes, including an exclusive Papaya Spark (pictured), the McLaren 720S Ride-On Toy features functioning dihedral doors, exposed carbon-style elements, signature 720S styling (like, obviously), working accelerator pedal, engine sound effects, onboard key ignition, remote controllable by parent, brake functional with brake light, and an infotainment system for playing music, or for watching a short movie on the integrated dashboard screen.
Music and short movie can be loaded from a USB or SD card in their respective port/card slot. There is also a selection of “popular songs” for six-year-olds preloaded on the system. I am guessing Baby Shark is one of the track. Just a wild guess. No words on the range of this electric ride-on toy for kids, though. Neither was top speed disclosed.
In addition to the Papaya Spark, the McLaren 720S Ride-On Toy is also offered in Azores Orange, Belize Blue, Lantana Purple, Onyx Black, Mauvine Blue, Silica White, and Saros Grey.
The McLaren 720S Ride-On Toy is available to order now, priced at the aforementioned £315 (US$398), at select global toy stores. If you ask me, it is surprisingly affordable. In fact, it is barely 8 percent of the asking price of the Toylander 1 Electric Car for Kids.
