1. Air Hogs Batmobile R/C Vehicle

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.

2. Hosim High Speed Remote Control Truck

Ages: 8 and up

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

This buildable, lifted truck is unique because it can travel as fast as a real car, up to 33 miles-per-hour. The rough, rugged tires are good for all terrains, and the awesome suspension means easier, better control from your RC.

6. Kid Galaxy Mega Morphibians RC Crocodile

Ages: 3 – 12

The Kid Galaxy Mega Morphibians RC Crocodile is a favorite pick of remote control vehicles for both big and little kids.

I love this Crocodile because it looks wicked! The teeth alone are fierce. Throw in the fact that this is an RC car that can travel on land and in water, and you have me hooked. The radio controls power on front paddle wheels, rugged tires, and a high-performance frame.

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.
