"The Fast Lane RC FA-005 should never have been put on shelves. To market this towards kids, this unwieldy metal monolith with large fast-spinning plastic knives on it, when four experienced adults nearly couldn't contain its random wrath even after doing modifications that no Toys R Us consumer should be expected to think of, much less execute, is a travesty."
Check out the Fast Lane FA-005 RC helicopter review & video.
"What a surprise. Seeing its price, I thought the Silverlit GT Champion Super Drift car would be, at best, a cool little toy for younger kids to drive around the kitchen or patio. Any and all expectations were exceeded with excellent, controllable, real drifting action, and fast, agile "grip" driving with a simple tire change. "

"While many new toy-grade RC products that raise the bar for quality and value have been released in 2011, New Bright has chosen to take one of their worst-performing products of the previous year, slap some new stickers on it, and put it right back on the market."

"I don't see why Air Hogs marketed this as an intermediate- to advanced-level product... ...being as easy as it is to get in the air and safely keep there, this is a perfect first-time beginner heli for even the younger crowd."

"The Fast Lane RC Hawk 4 is a solid "hit." It works very well for anything from brand new to intermediate fliers. It's very well constructed, and delivers on any and all promises it makes with its packaging, design, and instructions."

"The Mario Kart RCs are always fun to watch and play with, and the Air Hogs Battle Set versions pump up the action and excitement with sounds and the great power-up feature. However, having a pair of toys that are supposed to be equal, but are not, is a recipe for certain play-time disaster..."

"I give the Fast Lane RC Pro-Kart a passing grade. It's awesome to look at and has a very clever design, and the animated driver figure is a really nice touch. The performance is really hindered, though, by the use of a really small motor and small batteries hidden away to enhance the scale appearance of the vehicle."

"What a great car. It looks cool, it's simple to use, it gives you great control in small spaces, and it has a great "turbo" speed to cover longer distances very quickly. It also runs up to twice as long on a charge as it takes to charge it in the first place, which gives you an almost unheard-of fun ratio."

"The Desk Pets Trekbot is a cool novelty toy. It's very simple, has an intriguing design, and is more capable than I expected. The USB charging setup makes it a very inexpensive little thing to run over the long haul."
See the full Desk Pets Trekbot review.
"The Desk Pets Skitterbot is a very inexpensive toy to buy, and with all batteries included you can get a lot of use out of it without paying another cent... Skitterbots are cheaper than the RC Hexbug models, but provide the same type of enjoyment with perhaps a little more terrain-negotiating capability."

"The Fast Lane Sea Bird's battery cover is annoying, but the rest of what you get with this whole set is of pretty good quality. It's just not speedy at all, especially for something that looks like a speedboat. "
See the full Fast Lane RC Sea Bird review & video.
"The Tonka XT Ricochet Stunt Pro RC vehicles represent, at the time of this writing, the state of the art in performance for higher-end toy-grade RC cars & trucks. For the price especially, with all batteries included, I just don't think it gets better than this"
See the full Tonka Ricochet Stunt Pro RC review & video.
"The Real Lightning McQueen RC car from Air Hogs is one fine toy. It brings a much-needed, well-welcomed injection of technology-driven interactivity to the RC world to help keep the iPad/Xbox/smartphone generation of kids moving and playing with something real instead of solely sitting down staring at an LCD screen throughout all of their free time."
