7 Cool New Remote Control Toys
Remote control (RC) toys have come a long way from the days of long cords getting tangled and limited range of motion. The newest RC options give your child more control, more capabilities, and more cool features than ever before. Whether they’re a tot or a teen, or even someone whose still a kid at heart, here are some awesome new release r/c toys for people of all ages.
VTech Go Go Smart Wheels. Toddlers and very young children love remote control toys, too, but often have a tougher time controlling them. Enter the VTech Go Go Smart Wheels tracks and vehicles. Designed for younger children’s smaller hands and still-developing fine motor skills, these cool track sets allow the littlest kids to control cars just like the big kids. For ages 1 and up.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens BB-8 RC. Star Wars fans young and old will love this new and very unique remote control toy. It moves in a manner that’s different from the average RC device. Just like BB-8, the droid in the new hit Star Wars film, the RC BB-8 rolls like a ball on its spherical body – while the head magnetically stays near the top of the sphere, more or less. This one is sure to be a hit for collectors and remote control lovers alike. For ages 5 and up.
Hot Wheels RC Nitro Charger. For decades, Hot Wheels has been one of the biggest names in toy cars, so it’s no surprise they have developed some awesome remote control options. The big buttons on the controller are more intuitive and easy to use for preschool- and kindergarten-age children to control and enjoy. For ages 6 and up.
Tony Hawk Circuit Boards. Now anyone can fulfill their pro skater dreams with the Tony Hawk Circuit Boards. These RC miniature skateboards are very different from typical RC cars and trucks. Not only can you control the rolling and turning of the mini skateboards, you also can make them do skateboard tricks. You can even learn to do tricks on half-pipes, rails, ramps, and skatepark sets that you buy separately to create the ultimate skate course of your dreams – no helmet required. For ages 8 and up.
RC Pro Reaper. This awesome off-road RC vehicle from New Bright handles beautifully on both paved areas and off road. Its big wheels and rugged suspension handle uneven ground easily, and the trigger controller is great for elementary schoolers. It even comes with 2.4GHz technology that allow as many as 12 of them to run (or race!) at the same time. For ages 8 and up.
Air Hogs Shadow Launcher. This unique 2-in-1 RC toy comes with both a remote control truck and a remote control helicopter, so your RC enthusiast doesn’t have to choose just one. The controller moves the truck until you’re ready to take to the air, and then it launches and controls the helicopter for high-flying adventures. For ages 10 and up.
Sky Viper Camera Drone Quadcopter. What could make a super cool quadcopter even better? Put a camera on it! Watch while you fly with this four-blade helicopter that comes with an on-board camera that can snap still photos from above. For ages 12 and up.
