BEST remote control vehicle ever! Laser Stunt Chaser review {2011 Holiday Gift Guide}

A remote control vehicle is a gift I know most boys and men love! Any remote control vehicle has both my 4 and 7 year old sons thrilled, but if you add speed and the ability to do flips, my husband will be hooked too!

The Lazer Stunt Chaser by Thinkaway Toys is by far the coolest remote control vehicle I’ve ever seen. The remote control projects light, which the car ‘chases’.  You can adjust the speed with the trigger on the remote control or hit the Turbo button for maximum power!  It also comes with a stunt ramp, which you can use to launch the car, making it fly in the air, do flips and jump over obstacles.  The car has a dual-sided design with light-up wheels that change color when it flips over. Race the Chaser onto the stunt ramp and it’ll flip over and keep going!

When the Laser Stunt Chaser came in the mail, my son was thrilled.  My husband looked at the box without much reaction… UNTIL he saw where it read, “Up to 300+ MPH (scale speed)”.  Say what?!  OK, so it doesn’t really go up to 300+ MPH.  I researched what ‘scale speed’ means, and basically it means how fast the toy car goes in relation to a full-size model.  However, this car goes fast.

The speed makes it harder to control, but once Logan, my 7 year old, and my husband played with the car for a while, they got the hang of it.  The very first time they drove it on the stunt ramp and jumped it, I could hardly hear myself think over the screams of excitement from everyone! It has become the toy my kids fight over to play with.  They each take turns launching it up the stunt ramp, seeing who can get it to jump highest or furthest.  Even Connor, my 14month old, loves it. So much so, that he decided to step on the stunt ramp in his excitement to get to the car. The ramp cracked in the middle, but thankfully not all the way through. It still works and hasn’t hindered the kids’ play with the car one bit!

I intended to post a video of us using the stunt car, but this commercial is so much better than a video we’d take, and it shows you just how much these cars can do!

SO COOL! Even though we already have one, I am seriously considering purchasing at least one more for my boys. This way they won’t fight over it as much, and they can race them like you just saw in the commercial.
