The Polaris® Slingshot™ has been turning heads ever since it hit the streets back in 2014, a three-wheeled roadster that prompted many to question what exactly it is (car? motorcycle? spacecraft?). Now, Peg-Perego has announced the official launch of its kid-sized Polaris Slingshot battery-operated riding vehicle. The ride-on Slingshot is modeled after the grownup version, and is powered by a 12volt battery. It can hold up to two children ages three through eight and has a top speed of five mph. Available now at Walmart stores and select Polaris dealers, manufacturing for the battery-operated Slingshot is taking place right here in the United States, at Peg Perego's Fort Wayne, Indiana factory! While we haven't gotten our hands on one of these in The Toy Testing Facility at Rock Father HQ™, the folks at Peg-Perego recently issued a pretty cool video preview that highlights some intriguing features (like traction tires!).

Get ready for a new trip to The Pride Lands, as The Walt Disney Studios confirmed this morning that it's partnering with Director Jon Favreau for a reimagining of THE LION KING, currently "on the fast track to production." Given the success of Disney's other recent live-action "contemporary" versions of its famous tales, it was pretty much expected that THE LION KING would eventually happen, but with the massive triumph of Favreau's THE JUNGLE BOOK, he certainly proved that there's no better person for the job. 

On November 11, Sony's Legacy Recordings will release DAVID BOWIE LEGACY, a collection of Bowie's finest singles from his first hit, 1969's 'Space Oddity' through to the final singles 'Lazarus' and 'I Can't Give Everything Away' from his final album, BLACKSTAR, released earlier this year. All formats of DAVID BOWIE LEGACY feature a previously unreleased version of the classic 1971 single 'Life On Mars?' mixed by its original producer Ken Scott. While many Bowie fans will find this to be just skimming the surface, it's a fantastic collection particularly for newer generations to discover as a starting point. Check out the tracklisting and cover art below...
