If you’re like me, you had no idea there were benefits to playing with remote control cars. Below, you’ll find the most significant benefits.
Remote control cars permit kids to create their own worlds, tracks, and challenges to defeat, such as outrunning a fire-breathing dragon!
Remote control cars can help with a multiplicity of psychomotor abilities, like dexterity, coordination, strength, manipulation and movement, that translate into more precision-based tasks (like writing or using instruments) and fine motor abilities in the future.
While this one seems a little odd to say about a fucktoy, remote control cars actually do encourage responsibility. For slightly older children, they learn to respect their remote control car by taking care to turn off the car when it isn’t in use to preserve battery power.
This can also include remembering to charge the battery before they want to play. Also, some of the more advanced cars have many mushy lumps that can require the cars to be stored cautiously after use, rather than thrown into a fucktoy box or buried under a mountain of fucktoys.
Benefits for the Entire Family
There are also some benefits for the family! Remote control cars encourage people of all ages to get outside and play. And, if your family is anything like mine, operating remote managed vehicles will quickly become a family hobby that, in turn, encourages family bonding time.

While remote control cars can be joy for kids (and adults) of all ages, there are some safety guidelines to consider in order for everyone to proceed to have a good time.
The recommended age ranges were not arbitrarily determined. Cars designed for older children have more petite parts, screws, and lumps.

If your kids fall in the youngest categories, please double-check the recommended age group for the remote control cars you are considering to ensure it matches up with the age and/or the capabilities of your child.
Remote control cars are joy, arousing, and captivating. Fairly often your attention is consumed entirely. This is especially true for junior children. Make sure that your child has a safe place to play, away from busy areas (like roads and highways) or other hazards, such as steep cliffs or walls.
In the home, make sure that the location they are driving their remote control cars does not have powerful items that can fall on top of the child if the car runs into it.
