Our Favorite Remote Control Toys For Kids

What Remote Control Toys For Kids Are Your Favorites

I had two girls before I had Henry, so I was completely unprepared as far as what boys like. My girls were more tomboy than girly girl, but they was more about climbing trees or the monkey bars, rollerskating and playing sports. As Henry has gotten older, I am getting better about figuring out what he thinks is cool and fun and what is dorky and boring. He is a serious gamer, but he loves to be outdoors with Caitlin. As with most kids, they can get bored pretty easily, so I am always on the look out for new toys they would like. He recently announced he wanted to try to master the art of remote control toys (his words, not mine). I know nothing about these things so lucky for me when Alberto from Funky Planet offered to send Henry one of their awesome remote control toys.

Remote Control Toys For Kids

When I told my husband we were going to be getting a helicopter for Henry, he was more excited than Henry had been! He said he and his cousins used to play with remote control toys for kids when he was Henry’s age. I could not wait to see Chris teach Henry to fly his new toy. We received the Iron Hawk 12″ radio remote control helicopter and it is so cool! We had to wait a few days to fly it because we had some windy and rainy weather.

The helicopter has a gyro on top to help stabilize it, the remote has 3 channels: up/down, rotate left/right, and fly forward/backward and there is a turbo button that makes it zoom! The helicopter can fly for 8-10 minutes per charge and can fly up to 100 feet.

In Flight

Henry and Chris could not wait for the weather to break, so they decided to try it out in the kitchen with the lights out so they could see the lights work! Well, they aren’t very good at indoor flying, but the lights were very cool, I must admit. The helicopter also has a web card where you can fly a virtual helicopter in a 3D simulator game. Funky Planet is a company that wanted to provide consumers with the best remote control toy possible. Although there are a lot of larger companies in the industry, this David is kicking their Goliath butt when it comes to fun, function, quality and affordability! You can purchase the Iron Hawk Helicopter online at Funky Planet for $74.99 as well as a huge variety of RC toys including a Hummer, Mini Cooper, Stunt Buggy and a helicopter with a built in video camera!
