Coolest Remote Controlled Robots of 2019

When we were all growing up, it was considered to the next level of cool and revolutionary to have a toy that could light up and make noises, a doll that said a stock phrase whenever you pressed her hand, or a car that made revving sounds whenever its wheels were rotated at a certain speed. But technology has certainly come a long, long way since then, and the children of today are getting to explore toys that are cool and revolutionary in entirely new ways. One of the most cutting edge types of toys available out there on the market today is remote controlled robots.

We are familiar with the concept of remote controlled toys – some of us have vivid memories of remote controlled racecars similar to RC in Disney’s hit Toy Story (now that we are older, it is of course becomes abundantly obvious that “RC” stands for “racecar”…what else did we miss in those movies the first time we were watching them as kids??). But remote controlled robots are a step above remote controlled cars, boats, planes, and whatever else we were motoring around back in our childhoods. Remote controlled robots do not just move, they also do. And there is not much of a limit to the awesome things these robots can do. Remote controlled robots can walk, talk, dance, take aim and fire, and more. Remote controlled robots are also an awesome way to teach your child some skills that could end up being extremely lucrative later in life. While the remote controlled cars of our childhood were controlled by levers and buttons, many of the remote controlled robots of today are controlled using code. Coding is a valuable ability that could come in handy for your child when they want to become the next Mark Zuckerberg or Steve Jobs.

Check out some of the hottest remote controlled robot toys you can find out there on the market today:
