2015-2016 Best Kids’ Remote Control Cars

 
Little boy playing with RC carWhat stands out to me the most about the “best of” RC cars for kids this year is the fact that so many of them are created for children as young as toddlers – and they’re a blast! Also there are remote control vehicles for kids in an older age range (grownups too) that are entering the “high tech” zone, and can perform some pretty incredible stunts!

What’s here: On this page is a top 10 list of the best RC cars through the Christmas season of 2015 and into 2016. Rankings for the list are from 1 to 10, and are based on a few factors – “hot list” holiday toy information from top toy merchants, overall popularity and average consumer ratings. Remote control cars for a variety of age groups are included.

For shoppers: For each of the R/C cars listed here, one or more resources is hand-picked and recommended based on low pricing, trusted reputation for secure shopping and product availability. Links to customer reviews are also provided, where possible.
