The Shelby Cobra 427 Ride On is designed for tykes with an appreciation of classic American muscle cars. The kid-sized Cobra was built by Hong Kong-based toy company National Products Limited and is an officially licensed Carroll Shelby creation. This kid cruiser honors the late Shelby with its intense attention to detail.

The Shelby Cobra 427 Ride On comes in either blue or red and features the Cobra's iconic racing stripes. Other features include side exhaust pipes, chrome wheels and a roll bar. A special edition will also be made, and it will sport working headlamps, a navy blue metallic paint job and Shelby's racing number, 98. Only 998 baby Cobras will be made; this limit matches the production run of the Cobra from 1962 to 1967. You won't have to worry about toddler street racers as the Cobra Ride On can only do 5 mph.
