PRODUCT: IMC Toys I-Motion Car (www.imctoys.com)IMC Toys I-Motion Car

DESCRIPTION: A plastic radio controlled car which comes with a steering wheel remote control which steers the car by turning the wheel from side to side. Instructions included. Car requires 4 x AA and remote control requires 1 x 9V batteries (not included). Car measures 32cm. Available in red or blue design. Suitable for children aged 3 years upwards.

GOOD POINTS: The fantastic I-Motion Car from IMC Toys is an RC car with a driving experience like no other, and one which all little boy racers will want to get their hands on.

There are two unique car designs to choose from and both are a really decent size. The cars are wonderfully sporty in appearance - one chequered red and the other blue stripe - with some great attention to detail including oversized wheels, body kit, headlights, side mirrors and spoiler etc.

Each car has its own remote control steering wheel in matching colour, however this is definitely no ordinary transmitter. Thanks to a new super sensitive technology the car can be controlled and manoeuvred by operating the steering wheel in a similar IMC Toys I-Motion Carfashion to a real car. In other words, turning the wheel slightly left and right turns the car in the same direction. Additional left-hand and right-hand levers on the steering wheel control forwards and reverse motion, while a combination of turning the wheel and using the levers will turn the car whilst moving! This simple and intuitive design with its easy-to-use features mean that even the youngest of children will be able to master the controls within a short space of time. In addition, the cars are suitable for indoor or outdoor use (as long as it's not wet), so the more room the better the results!

Batteries must be installed into both the car and the transmitter prior to use (these are not included with the toy), however this is very easy to do via the battery compartments on the underside of each - a Phillips screwdriver will be required however (also not included).

Both the car and the remote control have handy on/off switches to save battery power - located on the base of the car and the front of the steering wheel, with an additional LED power indicator on the wheel which lights up when it is in operating mode (obviously both the car and the transmitter must be switched on to operate). Furthermore, the working frequencies of the red and blue cars differ, which means that if you have more than one budding racing enthusiast in the family they can compete against each other without a problem!

In our opinion, the I-Motion Car will be every little (and big) boy's dream racing car, with its generous size, fantastic sporty design, and intelligent easy-to-operate remote control...not to mention its reasonable price!

BAD POINTS: The toy requires a number of batteries which are not included and must be purchased separately, however rechargeable batteries can be used to keep costs down. The car is likely to mark easily with repeated contact with hard objects.
