For just about as long as cars have existed, so too have toy cars. They're an absolutely mainstay of any respectable toy chest, providing countless hours of fun. Whether your child prefers Hot Wheels, diecast scale models, or a different variety of toy, we're confident we can help you find something that they'll love.

As different vehicle manufacturers and types come in and out of style, so do the trends of toy cars. That's why Tesla roadster toy models are such a hot ticket item right now. With Tesla skyrocketing in popularity over the past several years, more and more children are begging their parents to bring home new Tesla toys for them to play with.

Its quite common for both boys and girls to develop a fascination with cars at a young age. We can still remember trying to figure out how they work from the days of our youth!

In this review and buying guide, we've come up with a list that consists of five of our favorite Tesla toy cars for your child to enjoy. We have tried to include a variety of different kinds of toys so that there's something for everybody, but it's safe to say that the Tesla toy market hasn't quite caught up to demand yet. Nonetheless, there are still plenty of amazing options out there for those who want to bring a Tesla home for their little one.


Top 5 Tesla Roadster Toy Models

    ANTSIR Car Model X

Our personal favorite and one of the most popular Tesla Roadster toy options out there is this diecast model made by manufacturer ANTSIR. Coming in at a very reasonable price point compared to many other diecast models out there, this option is not an official Tesla product, but you can see right away that it is still a fine replica. At 1:32 scale of the real thing, this toy is larger than most other toy cars like Hot Wheels but not too large that it becomes cumbersome for children to play around with.

The toy itself is made from a durable metal alloy that should not crack or break unless you really try to destroy it, and can accelerate when you put the vehicle back and let go. In addition to that awesome function, all the vehicle's doors open up, along with the hood and trunk. Once you install a small battery on the bottom, you'll even find that the toy has functioning lights and music. We're very confident that kids will have a blast playing with this awesome unofficial Tesla replica.

Key Features:

  • Metal Alloy Material

  • Trunk, Hood and Doors All Open

  • Pull Back and Let It Ride

  • Recommended for Children 12 Months and Up


Brand:  ANTSIR
Model:  B07PM4XP8W

    Official Tesla Motors 1:18 Scale Diecast P85 Model S

Next up, for our premium pick, we have an official Tesla diecast model that is perfect for those who want something very high quality and don’t mind spending a pretty penny on it. This officla Tesla Roadster toy is something of a collector’s item and is made from the same materials that are used to build real Tesla vehicles, which explains the extravagant price point. With its 1:18 scale, this is a larger toy and likely isn’t meant to be a toy that your child takes out and runs around with on a daily basis.

If your son or daughter is a fan of realistic models, this is one that they will love and cherish for many years to come. It’s not very often than a major manufacturer like Tesla releases a model of its own vehicle at such an excellent quality. While this choice certainly isn’t the right pick for every family, we believe there are those out there who will absolutely love this option.

Key Features:

  • Official Tesla Product

  • Made from the Same Materials as a Real Tesla

  • Hood, Trunk and Doors Open

  • Recommended for Slightly Older Children


Brand:  Tesla
Model:  B018WUJ492
Weight:  3.2 lbs.

Tesla Roadster Toy Buying Guide

As we mentioned before, there aren’t as many Tesla toys out there compared with how popular the vehicles are becoming, and that means it can sometimes be hard to find the right one for your child. Our best advice is to try and choose something based on your child’s likes and personality. If you already know that they have a large collection of Hot Wheels toys, chances are that they are going to like getting some more Tesla models to add to that. If they are interested in the inner workings and anatomy of vehicles, a diecast model might be more towards their taste.

No matter which variety you decide upon, there are some additional tips we can offer that will help you make the best decision. First, choose a toy that is built to last. You can do this either by paying close attention to the materials that the toy is made from, or if you buy from a trusted manufacturer like Hot Wheels or Tesla itself you should have some assurance. Next, choose a model that suits your child’s personality. If their favorite color is red, try to pick out a red Tesla model and so on. We know that often times a child doesn’t have too much of a preference when it comes to cool toys, so this may be less important than our last point, which is safety.

Always make sure safety is a priority when you’re shopping for toys. The recommended age for a child to start playing with Hot Wheels is around three, but the final decision is up to the parents. Small toys can sometimes be choking hazards for young children, while more heavy-duty diecast models may not appeal to those same young children.

With all of those factors in mind, we think you’re armed with the knowledge required to select the perfect toy for your child. We hope that the options we’ve included on our list today are enough to at least get you started, and we’re confident that they’ll love whichever model you decide upon.
