Radio Shack claims to have some fun Popular Mechanics toys that are educational! The fun comes in build-it-yourself, remote controlled robots — with step-by-step instructions, 25 pieces, a circuit board, infrared remote control system and more. Popular Mechanics gave the RC Tank and RC Bug a thumbs up at Radio Shack stores nationwide or online at Radioshack.com for $24.99.
We bought a lot of remote-controlled cars, and a few of them were worth the effort. If nothing else, they are fun to check out in the stores this season!
