PRODUCT: Spin Master Air Hogs Hyper Actives Stunt Car (www.spinmastertoys.co.uk)Spin Master Air Hogs Hyper Actives Stunt Car

DESCRIPTION: A double-sided remote control car that flips, jumps and spins 360 degrees. Features include 4-way direction control and turbo speed button.

Available in two split colour designs: red & blue or orange & green. Suitable for children aged 8 years upwards.

GOOD POINTS: The Air Hogs Hyper Actives Stunt Car is an amazingly fun and fearless little RC toy that will appeal to any young boy racers out there.

The car is a very slick looking compact toy which has been cleverly designed to be driven on both sides, indoors or out! The toy comes in a choice of bright split colour designs, with the bottom half in one colour and the top half in another to allow it to be interchanged.

Spin Master Air Hogs Hyper Actives Stunt CarThe main body of the car is plastic with lots of attention to detail on both sides. The wheels of the car are oversized and made of lightweight foam, and soft impact bumpers are located on both front and back to prevent damage to the car, furniture and ankles in the event of any knocks and collisions!

The car is operated via a smart little hand-held controller that also doubles as the car's charger. The controller takes six batteries which are not included with the product, and must be inserted via a battery compartment on the back of the controller prior to initial use (a screwdriver will be required for this).

Concealed (and handily stored) behind a neat little hinged cover on the front of the controller is a charge cable that simply unwinds and slots into the car's charge port when you need to charge the vehicle up. The car's power switch to turn it on/off is situated on the other side of the car, and a charging light on the controller turns from flashing red to green when charging is complete (takes approximately 50 minutes).

The RC stunt car is very easy to operate using the controller. It can be moved in any direction using the two left/right and forward/reverse control sticks, which enable the vehicle to be manoeuvred within the smallest of spaces around the house as well as in larger areas. A useful little 'trim' knob can be used to correct the car if its steering is misaligned.

In addition, a button on one of the corners of the controller makes the car spin round in circles, while a 'turbo' accelerator button on the other corner speeds the car up (even more than already!). Your child will love creating their own race courses and ramps to make the stunt car jump, and using a combination of the controls (e.g. 'spin' and 'turbo' together) can even make the car flip over...thanks to its fantastic double sided design it just keeps going!

The other great feature of the toy is that the two available designs race on different frequencies - the red/blue car runs on frequency A while the orange/green car runs on frequency B - 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, this is a wonderfully designed and compact little remote control stunt car that is super fast, lightweight and excellent fun for getting those competitive racing juices flowing!

BAD POINTS: The toy requires a large number of batteries which must be purchased separately, and batteries will need to be replaced frequently with heavy use. Not suitable for use on wet surfaces as the tyres are foam. The range is more limited that traditional radio control cars.

PRICE: Approx. £35
