A remote control toy is probably one of the best gifts you can receive as a child. Whether it’s a car, helicopter, robot, or fancy drone, remote control toys are exciting because they come with the fun of speed and movement. Kids usually have a lot of fun maneuvering these toys around, so it’s the perfect gift option. Here are some of the Best Remote Control Toys for Christmas 2018.
Kids’ RC Drones & Quadcopters
Drones have been catapulted to popularity over the last couple of years, and now almost everyone wants one. Using a handy remote, you can control the drone and make it fly. If you choose the quadcopter type, it’s a bit easier to control because of the four rotors that propel it. Some drones are also equipped with a video camera that helps you take amazing shots from afar. So aside from the sheer joy of controlling a flying object, having a drone can actually be quite handy especially for those who love traveling and going on all sorts of adventures.

Kids’ RC Planes & Helicopters
You can also give remote control planes and helicopters because this would still require controlling and maneuvering. There’s something exhilarating about knowing that you’re making an object fly and controlling where it goes. You won’t run out of options when it comes to RC planes and helicopters, but you definitely have to consider the age and skill level of whoever you’re giving it to. For younger kids who are beginners, the controls shouldn’t be as complicated. But for older or more experienced kids, you’d want to give something that can hold their interest.

It’s also common to give kids remote control cars, trucks, or anything that runs on four wheels. You will also be faced with many options but there are some factors that you need to consider as well. For one, remote control cars can be as simple and as complicated as can be, and you’d want to match the difficulty level to the age and skill of whoever you’re giving it to.
