Before summer comes to a close, might we recommend a leisurely ride in a vintage car, roof down, shades on? Please note this recommendation is for children, not adults.

The chicest tots on the playground are now riding around in Dexton’s Mercedes, which vintage car buffs will approve of. This pint-sized automobile is a true replica of the Mercedes-Benz 300SL, which was introduced in 1954 and became an instant icon. The children’s model features LED headlamps, a three-spoke steering wheel and a functioning horn. Doting parents will approve as well, because the voiture goes no faster than 1.56 miles per hour.

Consider this car as a starting kit of sorts for tasteful tykes. Just be prepared when the kids start requesting a full-sized version. Perhaps suggest that they start saving now.
