We’ve been enjoying this remote control dirt buggy from Xenon Project for the past couple of weeks.  It had been awhile since I had experienced the fun of controlling a speeding miniature vehicle!  Seriously, I think I was 12 the last time I had one of these!  If I’m doing the math correctly, that’s 16 years ago.  Wow, that makes me sound really old.

So Emma, at 3, got to experience this for the first time ever recently… and boy was she feeling the high associated with it!  She loves this toy and asks to “drive the car” every day.  I was pleased with how quickly she caught on to the workings of the controller, too!  Kids are so smart SO young nowadays!  Well, maybe they’ve always been this smart.  :)

This is a terrific little buggy for the price, $19.99.  I know that buying inexpensive can mean you don’t get a quality toy, but I was pleased with the way this one is made.  Just be aware that some remote control cars, like this one, are meant to be played with indoors only.  I did think it was rather humorous that the one we have is called a “Racing Dirt Buggy” when it’s not meant to be in actual dirt, though.  ;-)  Regardless, we took it outside and played with it on gravel and it did great!  In fact, my husband had to get in on the fun and he made it do some pretty cool things – it’s a powerful little buggy!  Not quite powerful enough for rough terrain, but then it is a racing car and is built for speed.

Video Demo:

The batteries in our racing buggy went dead after only the second time playing with it, something that surprised me… I had forgotten that these toys use up batteries like crazy!  I would recommend buying rechargeable batteries for sure.  It’s well worth it.

Other remote control toys can be found at Xenon Project including airplanes, helicopters, trucks, boats, and even tanks.  Prices range from very inexpensive (perfect for beginners) like the one I received to more pricey for the serious RC enthusiast.  This online RC Toys store is recommended!

I received the product above so that I could share my thoughts on it with you!

  • My children used to love remote control cars. They are such fun. This one looks like a suped up speedster for sure.

  • I love RC cars, Jake likes them, but he has a tendency to break them after running into things with them. This one looks fun though!

  • My kids LOOOVE remote controlled cars – how fun!! :)

  • We got one last year. So hard to find a good one that doesn’t look too manly/boyish. We got a 4×4 truck so my DD can tie her stuffed animals in the back. Glad you daughter had fun – they do learn quick!

  • My husband always makes sure he gets his turn playing with the remote control toys too.

  • All 3 of my kids love radio controlled cars, we had a car race last weekend with them, 2 cars involved. We drew a track on the road with special 3D crayons from Crayola and were driving with 3D glasses on! It was an esxperience I can say, I got a bit dizzy.
    Controlling these is challenging but fun!

  • I remember i had a remote car when i was little, you can have so much fun with these things as kids.. Lovely to see other people playing with them now a days!

  • I always buy some new model for my kids (since they don’t last long extreme playing), and every time i do so i am as happy as them…Am trying to hide that hehe , but the blink in my eye is to noticeable !

  • Heh I remember my childhood 15 years ago, we would make contests and even tournaments with those RC cars. Such great times, glad there are still people playing with them, they bring loads of fun !
