Mini Power Wheels Tent: A Daydream Prank

Adorable Hatchling or Full-Size Rooftop Tent?

It’s the time for tomfoolery and to be direct, this petite tent isn’t available. We are confident that what’s in the picture is a digital manipulation. April Fools’ Day is here, and out of all the gags related to cars there could be none cuter than an overland ready kitted Power Wheels Jeep.

We have Roofnest to thank for this ingenious concept. The Colorado-based company produces all kinds of rooftop tents, and if this was one of them, it would be known as the Hatchling. Dubbed as the world’s first rooftop tent for children, it measures 36 inches long by 24 inches wide and 23 inches tall. It is designed to fit two young kids who are ready for backyard explorations, or for parents who need some much-needed rest – we are told three toddlers can also fit inside. Even a “gangly tween” reportedly fits in this miniature tent.

As displayed in the image, the tent nicely attaches to the top of a beloved Power Wheels off-roader, though it looks especially chic on the pink Barbie Jeep. As far as one can recall, that is a 12-volt Jeep featuring an installed radio and single motorized engine allowing this vibrant vehicle to reach its maximum speed of 5 mph. We certainly are not proficient in regards to Power Wheels Barbie Jeeps – that would be absurd.

“A backyard campout is not complete without a rooftop tent,” declared Dave Rogers, Chief Marketing Officer of Roofnest. “That’s why Roofnest created the Hatchling, which is the ideal size to fit on any kids’ powered vehicle. The Roofnest Hatchling is the perfect addition to any powered kids’ car.”

Unfortunately, there is some real sticker shock that comes with this package. The Hatchling is set at a hefty $4,123, which has no connection whatsoever to April 1, 2023. When compared, it’s nearly three times the cost of the Roofnest Meadowlark full-size tent on which it’s modelled. Thank goodness this is all just an enormous practical joke, because trying to market the Hatchling at that price point would be incredibly challenging.

Joking aside, overlanding has surged to tremendous popularity as of late, so now we have to be very clear that this tent is just not real. We recognize there are awesome guardians who’d fancy one for their kids, but they’ll have to come up with other alterations to make their Power Wheels vehicles even more impressive. Perhaps get it a motor mod to boost its hauling might?
