Children and adults alike will enjoy playing with RC cars. Here are some games and activities you can play with different RC cars and other vehicles that will get everyone in on the fun.
1. Race your vehicles.
Whether you have race cars or ordinary radio control cars, races can be a lot of fun. Add some obstacles or jumps to various parts of the track to make the race more intense.
2. Use your cars to deliver messages.
Whether you want to ask your mom what time lunch will be served, or you want to say “I like you” to your sweetheart, why not tape a note to the top of your RC car and let the vehicle deliver your message?
3. Play practical jokes.
Playing practical jokes that don’t cause injury or harm can be a lot of fun. Try things like putting your car inside the garage after moving your dad’s car somewhere else. Tell him his vehicle has shrunk.
4. Entertain pets.
Dogs and cats will be fascinated by RC vehicles. Try driving your remote control car very slowly past a sleeping cat to see what he will do. Or, let your dog chase the RC vehicle around the grass.
5. Start an RC vehicle club.
Ask your friends, siblings, or cousins who have RC vehicles to join your club.
These are just a few of the fun games you can play with your RC cars. Come up with more creative ideas with your friends!

Do you know someone who loves remote control toys but already seems to have a lot of the same type? Perhaps they have several model RC cars, some helicopters, and a nitro RC car. Here are a couple of more unusual RC toys that you can give someone who has “everything else.” These make great Christmas gifts.
What about a radio control forklift truck? Certainly most people can’t say they have one of these, and it can be a lot of fun for kids and adults alike. Our mini forklift truck can move forward and backwards, and the lifting mechanism can lift and tilt. The truck also comes with four traffic cones, a pallet, and a crate.
Another great choice is our remote control Seadoo Waverunner Jet Ski. This fast moving remote control toy manoeuvres easily, and can be safely used in any body of water—whether that’s a lake or merely a bathtub. It features dual motors, durable construction, remote control wave runner, rider, and a transmitter that takes a 9 volt battery.
Or, if you’re buying for someone who’s not too keen on the water, why not buy a remote control tank instead? Our BB Firing Tank is modelled after the Japanese T-90 battle tank. It features turret swivel, barrel raise, and fires plastic bullets with the motor gun system—up to 40 shells. The range is 25 meters. There is even a red warning light that comes un just before the tank fires. Great fun for boys of all ages!
These are just a few slightly more unusual RC toys. We hope you find something you like besides the usual model RC cars.

Remote control helicopters aren’t just for boys. Many girls have just as much fun with remote control toys as boys do. But it can be difficult to find helicopters in colours that girls will like, especially if they like colours that are more traditionally thought of as “girl colours.” Here are a couple of our radio controlled helicopter toys in colours that girls might appreciate.
Pale blue is a good colour for girls, and if this is a colour you think the little lady on your gift list would like, you’ll want to check out our Z-Series Z008 Infarared 4CH with Gyroscopes System Helicopter. It works with a Lithium Polymer Battery, has an infrared control system, and has a flight duration of 6 to 7 minutes.
Another colour that can work for girls is yellow. One of our choices for yellow helicopters is SYMA S031G Gyro Metal Frame Coaxial. This comes in bright yellow and black, and features include: alloy structure, electronic fine tuning for more stable flying, all around 3 channel control, and an advanced intelligent balance system.
These are just a couple of examples of remote control helicopters that could work for girls. We also have them in red, white, orange, and many other colours that girls might like. If you aren’t sure what colour to buy, why not ask the person you are buying for to be sure you find something she will love?
Be sure to check out our many other products including remote control tanks, boats, and more.
