Denver, CO (PRWEB) November 28, 2007
With as much as 50% of remote control toy sales coming during the holiday shopping cycle, it's easy to see why remote control cars and trucks are so popular. Few gifts are a sure thing - but a fun & unique remote control toy is almost always a crowd pleaser for the kids.
Helping parents find the right remote control toy is a little easier with the help of online tools like the new Remote Control Toy Gift Guide from the Radio Control Toy Store.
"Finding the right remote control vehicle can be a challenge," said Wayne Becker of radiocontroltoystore.com. "You have entry level battery powered cars & trucks - which are virtually disposable. Then you can step up to the gas powered Nitro RC Trucks - powerful, loads of fun, but more expensive."
Some of the most popular and unique remote control toys this year include:
· Dual mini-RC Helicopters with Infrared Lasers
· All in one Battery Powered RC Trucks
· Palm sized indoor RC Helicopters from about $29
· Nitro RC gas-powered trucks - from about $99
· Remote control hovercraft or submarines
· RC Helicopters with on board recordable camera
One of the top selling models is the 2-person duel helicopters - which run about $50 and feature two small helicopters that fire infrared beams to "shoot" the other out of the air.
"The industry has come a long way. We still have the battery powered remote control car and trucks, but now we see more 2-player innovation. Indoor helicopters the size of your hand are super popular this year - as are camera equipped models. Remote control is fun again - and most are under $100."
In addition to kids and teens, remote control vehicles are also big business for adults. Most popular in the adult segments are off-road nitro trucks, some with speeds of up to 55 mph. Track based nitro RC cars, large outdoor helicopters and planes, and even blimps and pool safe submarines that can dive. Almost anything you can imagine is now available - faster and more durable than ever.
The Radio Control Toy Store also features videos of popular remote control trucks - especially the faster and more powerful nitro RC trucks. The videos and guides let you experience what the high end remote control trucks can do.
Featuring discounts and free shipping deals on popular remote control vehicles from 4 of the major retailers, the remote control Toy Gift Guide is a great way to pick the "can't miss" gift.
