Getting out and about, keeping the kids busy

As the nights are now getting lighter and the days a little warmer the kids just want to be outside, on their scooters, bikes, skates, playing football or rugby, generally being active and outdoors. We live in a great place to be able to get out, we have a park close by, places to ride the bikes and scooters and fields to play football or rugby in so its not too difficult to keep up with their demands but at times they want to try something new and are always on the look out for new toys, especially things they can enjoy outdoors.

I was recently sent a RC racing off road buggy to review, i do not need to tell you how happy this made my kids! Unfortunately we were due to go away for a few days so this was like torture for them, knowing they had to wait to try it out. Luckily the weather has been good so we were able to get out and test it out after school.

Good looking changeable Lexan body. Forward, reverse,better steering structure for left and right controls. Full suspension,differential gears,off-road tires. READY TO RUN!
