Children's electric vehicles such as the Dino AR Explorer off-road vehicle, the Uprider or the Turnado from Rollplay make children's hearts beat faster.
Jürgen Groh: Here we are in the world of children's mobiles! What do you have in your range? Christian Alsbaek: We mainly have these three products that we see here. This is the Dino Explorer, a very nice vehicle for children, a two-seater. It has 12 volts and travels at 6-7 kilometers per hour. Children ride outside and are back in nature. They can discover nature and drive around. The great thing about it is that it comes with an app where the children see dinosaurs on the radar screen, drive there and take photos of them and save them in their library. This is a very communicative and educational product when the children learn when the dinosaurs lived.
Jürgen Groh: But that means I have to live in a rural area, doesn't it? Christian Alsbaek: Yes, of course, these electric vehicles are underdeveloped in terms of mobility in Germany. You're not allowed to drive them on public roads, but you can drive them on private property or parks at speeds of up to 6 km/h. Jürgen Groh: It's already looking great! What can it do? Is it an off-road vehicle? Christian Alsbaek: It is an off-road vehicle, it has the tires of an off-road vehicle and of course the grip that an off-road vehicle needs, but it is mainly suitable for normal paths on meadows.
Jürgen Groh: And the Segway is for children for sightseeing? Christian Alsbaek: The Segway is a party product. Our Uprider for children aged 6 and over. It's a vehicle, of course - which the child steers by shifting their body weight forwards or sideways. It trains the child's motor skills and is a very exciting and innovative product. Would you like to demonstrate it? Of course she already knows how to switch it on. You can see the training wheels at the front so that the child can't fall over forwards or backwards. That's for safety, otherwise it works with the child's balance because the body weight steers to the right or left.
Jürgen Groh: We have a third vehicle! Christian Alsbaek: That's the Turnado, our fastest vehicle that we currently have in our range and which travels at up to 15 kilometers per hour. Jürgen Groh: That's a lot!
Christian Alsbaek: It also has 24 volts and is suitable for children aged 12-13 and over. It has a very fast speed, is fun to ride and you drift around in it. It's a very exciting vehicle. Jürgen Groh: The key question is how much does it cost? Christian Alsbaek: The Turnado costs €379. The Segway is €279. And the Dino Explorer is €400. I think that's the problem, that many people think that it's much more expensive, but immobility also comes with cars, which are getting cheaper and cheaper, and of course this reflects the fact that we want to equip children with immobility. Jürgen Groh: And at some point there will definitely be car sharing! Christian Alsbaek: Definitely, it already exists!
