We thought we would start things off with this really cool and rather inexpensive, Amphibious remote control car, which is the Morphibians Killer Whale by Kid Galaxy. This is aimed at kids who are aged 5 and up and we think they will really like the cool killer whale design. It almost looks like the car is wearing shades!

It has 4 wheel drive and a pretty good motor so it can drive over pretty any kind of surface the kids want to take it on, even shallow water. The controls are very easy to get to grips with and as well as standard driving, this car is made to do some pretty wild and fun skids as well.

Both the car and the remote control are operated with batteries so there is no charging, but you will want to make sure you have a stockpile of batteries as two AA and 3 AAA batteries are required.

Remote Control Bumper Cars by Kid Galaxy 2 Cars & 2 Controllers

We had to put the Remote Control Bumper Cars by Kid Galaxy on our list for best remote control cars for kids as these are not just RC cars, but a cool game as well.

This comes with two remote control bumper cars and two controllers and the idea is to smash them together. This is something that kids really love to do (and grown ups as well).

These RC bumper cars are designed to take a ton of abuse. The cars are a lot of fun as they are easy to control and can spin around so your child will be able to use precise driving moves to escape being hit. The cars also make lots of noise, noise which is sure to drive you insane, but the kids will love it.

This set is aimed at children aged 5 years and up and it is recommended that you use a more flat surface to battle on. In total you will need ten AAA batteries for the set.

Lamborghini Veneno Radio Controlled Car

Here we have a car that is just perfect if your child likes sports cars and things that go really fast. The Lamborghini Veneno Radio Controlled Car is officially licensed by Lamborghini so it gets major cool points for that.

The Lambo has a very smart look to it and despite its sporty design the body is much tougher than you would think. The car is very easy to drive, goes really fast and even has fully working headlights and taillights.

This is the kind of RC car that the kids will love, but will struggle to get to play with as dad is always using it! This is a lot of fun and it is made for kids aged 8 and up.

The car needs 3 AAA batteries and the remote control 2 AA batteries so stock up!

Professional RC Excavator by Top Race

Professional RC Excavator by Top RaceCheck Price

The Professional RC Excavator by Top Race is not what you would class as an RC car. Nevertheless this is really cool and something we are sure kids will really like.

This remote control excavator can drive around like a regular RC car, but the real fun is getting this thing out in the dirt and using it to move around rocks, mud and the little sisters Barbie dolls! The large treads make this able to drive over pretty much anything that gets in its way. The shovel is really strong as it is made from steel, so kids will be able to dig pretty deep with this.

There are quite a lot of buttons on the controller so there is a bit of a learning curve with this and that is why it is aimed at children aged 10 and up. The actual excavator has a rechargeable battery, but the remote will require 2 AA batteries.

Next on our list of best remote control cars for kids we have something made by Fisher-Price. We really wanted to make sure there was at least one RC car on this list that was for preschoolers and the My Easy RC Vehicle by Fisher-Price is perfect. This is a really cute, but cool looking sports car that kids aged 3 and up will have a lot of fun with.

The Fisher Price remote control car can go at a good speed, but not so fast that they will run it into themselves and get hurt. The body of the car is made from solid and long lasting plastic so it will be fine taking the odd slam into the living room wall.

The remote makes driving very easy as there is only 4 buttons, a button for each direction so even a really young child will have no trouble getting the hang of this. The car and the remote control will require 6 AAA batteries between them.

All Terrain Radio Controlled Monster Truck RC Car by Hosim

Wow! The All Terrain Radio Controlled Monster Truck RC Car by Hosim has so much power that it could probably give your own car a run for its money! This is just a really awesome looking monster truck that is big, loud and super fast. It has a very well made motor that allows it to go up to 33 mph! So you will certainly want to make sure you have a lot of space and not let them race this inside.

As well as being fast the truck also has some amazing suspension so it is able to take jumps and even go off road and take on the roughest terrain the kids can find.

This is not really for little kids and the recommended age is 14, but for a kid looking to get into real RC car racing, we feel this truck would be a great place to start.

Spiderman Wall Climber Climbing RC Car by JJX-Tech

Just a heads up that the Spiderman Wall Climber Climbing RC Car does not have Spider-Man in the name because it is licensed by Marvel. It is called this because this car can do pretty much everything Spider-Man can!

Well apart from spinning webs and catch bad guys.

This awesome car can not only drive really fast on the floor. It can also (thanks to some fancy hoover technology) drive on the walls and even the ceiling! This is pretty amazing to see and we are sure your kids are going to love driving this all over the house. It does require a flat surface to drive on so walls that are bumpy will not be ideal. The car has been made very strong so even if it does fall or they have the odd crash it will be fine.

Aimed at children aged 8 and up , if you want a RC car that is a little different then you do not get much more different that driving on the ceiling!

This Set of 2 Full Size Infrared Remote Control RC Battle Tanks is one of the most fun items on this whole list. In this set you get two awesome looking tanks and two remote controls.

The idea of this is that they drive around trying to shoot an infrared beam at the other tank which the tank registers as a hit. The flashing lights let you know how much damage the tank has taken and when all the lights are flashing, you know who is the winner.

This is a lot of fun and as well as driving the tank, you can actually move the gun around independently which is really cool. The actual tanks come with internal batteries and a charger to keep them ready for battle.

The remotes require two AA batteries which is the standard these days. These are for children aged 12 and up and we must say this would be a great gift if you have two kids.

We know that the X9 Flying Quadcopter Remote Control Car has a really high tech look to it and appears to be something James Bond would drive.

This is actually one of the most spectacular cars on our list of best remote control cars for kids! We say this because you can drive around the floor like you would expect. However if something gets in your way then you just hit the button on the remote and the car can actually hover above it.

This is a two in one kind of deal where you get a car and also a drone that can fly and do stunts. Kids are going to have a lot of fun with this. This vehicle has a rechargeable battery, but as a bonus they give you two so you can double the play time!

There is a little bit of a learning curve here, but kids as young as 8 will be able to get to grips with.

Last on our list of best remote control cars for kids we have a car for the Ferrari lover. It’s this incredible and officially licensed Ferrari LaFerrari remote control car. This RC car has been designed to be as close to a real Ferrari as possible and we think they have done a great job. The doors slide up and even the remote control has that authentic Ferrari style.

The car can go very fast and despite being based on a sports car they have put in rear suspension so even more bumpy terrain will not be a problem. This is a really fun cool looking RC car and the asking price is not bad at all either.

As this is pretty fast the car does require five AA batteries and the remote a single 9 V battery. This is a lot of fun and also makes a great display & collectors item for more grown up Ferrari lovers. Kids aged 5 and up would sure love to own this car.
