Rollplay Readies First Mini Cooper Ride-On Vehcile
New York, NY — Ride-on toy supplier Rollplay struck an agreement to bring a Mini Cooper Countryman to market, the first such agreement for the iconic brand. The vehile, part of a exclusive global pact for Mini Cooper, is designed for 3-6-year-old children, features remote control override and can travel up to 2.5 miles per hour. Rollplay also will show a licensed Porsche Macan Turbo SUV ride-on vehicle with the same features.
Also taking center stage at the Rollplay booth at New York City’s Jacob K. Javits Center is the brand’s growing family of high-performance, one-of-kind battery powered products under its “Perform” segment that deliver non-stop action for kids ages 6-12. The strikingly low-slung Nighthawk offers the ultimate in lean-to-turn maneuverability at speeds of up to 6 MPH, while the skateboard-meets-scooter Wave Catcher delivers an awesome street surfing sensation at speeds up to 10 MPH.
“Rollplay is all about empowering kids with the best ride-on experiences, from self-powered foot-to-floor first rides, to battery-powered, perfect replica vehicles for adventurous girls and boys up to age six, to nothing-like-them powered performance products for thrill seekers as old as 12,” said Todd Rywolt, VP Sales and Marketing, North America, at Rollplay. “At the same time, our dedication to safety gives parents and gift-givers peace of mind. And our watch on what’s trending with kids enables us to deliver on what they really want, all the way up to famously fickle tweens.”
Among the must-see Rollplay items at this year’s North American Toy Fair:
- MINI Cooper Countryman
Coming this fall, the MINI Cooper Countryman is a worldwide exclusive, battery-powered ride-on complete with 12V of power that will have little drivers racing up to 5 MPH. An opening door allows kiddos to easily hop in and out, while rubber tire strips provide added traction for smooth acceleration. Little MINI enthusiasts will find delight in the realistic dashboard, cup holder, working horn and roaring engine sounds. Kids can cruise along to their favorite tunes with the working radio. Side windows, LED headlights, folding mirrors and a clear windshield make the ride feel even more like the real car. Parents get a remote control so they can steer young drivers in the right direction if needed.

Handles like a scooter, riders like a skateboard: here comes the Wave Catcher, the latest addition to Rollplay’s Perform segment. Wave Catcher combines scooter, skateboard and electric power for a one of a kind ride, designed with an aluminum skateboard deck that tilts from side to side for a surfing sensation on an electric scooter. The flex handlebar puts kids in control even during extreme tilting action, and dual push button throttles let them soar down the street with either hand on the bars while leaning in and out of turns. Powered with a long-lasting 24V lithium battery, kids and tweens can race at thrilling speeds up to 10 MPH. When it’s not in use, simply fold it up for convenient storage.
Age: 8 years+
Drive the adventure with the 12V Nighthawk! Rounding out the Rollplay Perform segment, kids can reach forward speeds of up to 6 MPH and will love learning how to maneuver around obstacles with Nighthawk’s unique steering technique — lean left and right to zoom into turns. Accelerator and brake pedals allow riders to control speed with ease, while side handlebars help them remain secure and keep their hands protected. With an included rear safety flag, parents can easily keep an eye on riders while they have a blast racing. Available in several cool colors.
