Model trains are a Christmas favorite, but they are fun all-year round. Here are the 10 best model train sets (electric and battery-powered).
We've researched and recommended the best ride-on toys based on battery life, safety features and adjustability for child growth.
This train got high marks from our testers and is equal parts toy and model train. It’s an HO gauge set, which means it’s the ideal size for both play and viewing.
This train is a sight to behold. It’s an O gauge train so it was one of the larger trains we tested, but it’s still breathtakingly detailed.
This military-themed train set is the least expensive one we reviewed, and we could tell. Each piece is extremely light and made of cheap-feeling plastic. The track itself is no better, and everyone who used it had a hard time keeping it on the track.
This HO scale train comes with three train cars and a general style locomotive with a working headlamp, though there aren’t any parts that move freely as the train navigates the track.
This train comes with five cars total: a GP locomotive with working headlamp, tank car, box car with working door, wide vision caboose and gondola with removable load.
The problem with the Freightmaster isn’t that it’s an inherently bad train; it’s that our reviewers couldn’t stand how small it is.
This Lionel train can be fun for young and old train lovers alike. It features the classic Disney characters Mickey and Donald Duck on a red and green Christmas train filled to the brim with gifts.
The best RC airplanes in the world offer an easy learning curve with spectacular depth. We figure out which of them are worth your time in our top 10.
You can be a boat owner for pennies on the dollar. Just get an RC boat and you'll be creating small wakes in no time. Read our review and learn what makes the best entry-level remote control boat.
The Pro Boat Miss Geico is a 17-inch catamaran RC boat modeled after a full-size race boat of the same name. The full-size Miss Geico is the fastest offshore catamaran in the world. Unfortunately, the same can't be said about the radio-controlled boat version.
The Aquacraft Minimono is a sleek 16-inch monohull RC boat with a brushless motor. In fact, it's one of the few boats in this price range with a brushless motor. However, the handling, speed, run time and overall performance was just average, while the durability was below average.
The Pro Boat React is a 17-inch monohull shaped almost like a torpedo than a boat. This gives it exceptional handling. As a result, it was one of the most fun boats we tested. It recorded the fastest speed, and it's made of a high-quality plastic that doesn't feel brittle or cheap in your hands.
HobbyZone’s Sport Cub S is an unassuming little flier. Its 2-foot wingspan is average for these sorts of RC airplanes, and its 320-foot range is likewise decent but far from stupendous.
HobbyZone’s Stratocam is a fairly new RC airplane that released just this past year. Its design is an evolution of the popular but discontinued Firebird Stratus, a plane with a huge wingspan and easy flight dynamics.
If there’s one thing we look for in the remote control airplanes we review, it’s fun. There’s no point in flying RC planes, whether they’re built for beginners or aimed at expert pilots, if they don’t make you grin from ear to ear.
