This is gorgeous.

The scale model Tesla S also has a sound system so the kids can listen to their favourite song on their little drive.

Consultant anaesthetist Dr Jon Chambers told The Mirror:

"Going to an operating theatre is an anxious time for everyone, adult or child. With children, reducing the stress associated with having an operation is particularly important."

"To be able to turn what is a scary journey from the ward to the operating theatre into something fun can have a really positive effect on the children, both then and for the future."

And judging by eight-year-old Juno, who was the first to test drive it, this is a brilliant idea!
