The first pick of the top 10 RC cars for kids 2016 is the Air Hogs Batmobile R/C Vehicle.

Sleek and cloaked in black, this super cool Batmobile mimics that one from Batman vs. Superman. The movie received mixed reviews, but this RC favorite is a definite thumbs up from all critics. The design is cool with brushed metal details, 4 frontal LEDs, a rear LED, and a turret.

Next – second of the ten best RC cars for kids this year – Hosim High Speed Remote Control Truck.

6. Kid Galaxy Mega Morphibians RC Crocodile

Ages: 8 and up

A huge hit in 2016, apparently released earlier this year – next up on the list is the Maisto R/C Rock Crawler Extreme RC Vehicle.

Another fun amphibious RC! The Kid Galaxy Mega Morphibians Turtle arrives as the final pick of the top ten R/C cars for kids this year.

Another favorite from Mega Morphibians. This RC amphibian resembles a turtle; albeit, a fierce one that you should maybe avoid petting. Ha! The rugged tires are perfect for all terrain rides, both on land and in water. Super-easy to control.
