6 Best Remote Control Car For Kids In India
Let me tell you the bad news first. No matter how expensive or how cheap the remote-control car you buy for your child is, it won’t last for long. If your child is careless, it will run for a few weeks and if you have a child who is quite cautious and protective, it might last a few months (there are exceptions though). And of course, remote control cars are huge battery eaters. Though the cars have rechargeable batteries, the remote requires 2-3 batteries at a time and thanks to their inefficiency, it lasts for just 1-2 weeks at the maximum. So, if you are lucky to have a RC car that lasts, then, in the long run, you will end up spending more for the batteries than for the car itself.
Now, for the good news. Kids adore them. Well, even adults. It is a lot fun. If you need your child to be away from screen and occupied with something else, hand him/her a remote-control car. The tight maneuvering, constant crashing, flipping all keeps your little car fanatic hooked on for a really long time.
Before you buy, you might also want to know that—NEVER give it to a child who is younger than 3. They will end up dismantling the tyres, doors and other parts reducing the life of an already short-lived car. Yes, you guessed it right, I am saying this from my own experience with my son.
So now, let us get on to the list. In order to form this list, the main factors we have considered are appearance, features, user-reviews and price. I also recommend a car which my son played with. It had a short life, but it wasn’t because of the car’s fault, rather because my 3.5-year-old son thought he is a world class mechanic.

With 4-wheel drive, large wheels, solid frame chasis and made of durable splash-proof plastic body, this monster truck can be used indoor as well as outdoor. Thankfully, the truck runs on rechargeable batteries, while the remote consumes 3 AA batteries. A drawback however is that the truck runs only for about 30-45 minutes after charging it for a full 8 hours.
It has a maximum speed of 10kmph and is pretty durable too. One of my friend’s 8-year-old has been using it for past 3 months and it is still running fine.
The product is sold in random colours. So, if you are particular about a colour, then it isn’t advisable to buy online.
