Remote Controlled Helicopters for KidsRemote control helicopters used to be so expensive such that only die-hard enthusiasts could afford the hobby. Improved technology has seen a decline in the cost of manufacturing a model aircraft and as such the cost of purchase. These ‘toys’ are a superb way to introduce your children into the world of physics and aerodynamics. Not only do they create a great bonding experience for both father and child, but they are great fun for each of them individually as well. The best type for a child is a simple electric model that provides sufficient flight control and stability. These are cheap and available from any toy store.

Toy remote control helicopters are usually 1 or 2 channel and are made of a damage resistant material like foam or plastic. They are generally more stable than larger helicopters and have fewer controls making it easy for children as young as the age of 7 to learn. Though they are not as fast as the hobby-grade versions and can only perform simple maneuvers, this type of model is the most cost effective way for a child to learn how to fly. There is a wide variety of styles and designs to choose from and they all come in different colors.

If your child is of the age 8 and up, you can introduce him/her to a micro version. Micros are cheaper than the hobby grade models but they can still perform as well as a low-end gas powered aircraft. These simple models come ready to fly (RTF) meaning that they require no additional assembly and are ready to use straight out of the box.

Baby Doll ToysMost women can tell you stories of the first baby doll toys they had as a little girl. Those sweet summer days of strolling your beautiful newborn baby around in your plastic stroller are some of the best memories a girl has from her childhood. Dressing her up, feeding her pretend food, giving her that little bottle with the fake milk inside: these are all fond memories for a grown up little girl.

Playing with baby dolls is an important part of the developmental process for a young girl. She learns how to take care of things. She also learns to develop empathy for other people. In the fun of caring for her baby doll, the first inklings of one day becoming a mother herself may start to happen. Of course, she is many years away from that but learning these traits as a small child will set a precedent in her mind.

There are many types of baby dolls these days, and there are certainly way more than there have been at any other time in history. We even have dolls that talk, walk and go to the bathroom! This is the height of realism, isn’t it? Even the features of some of these dolls look so realistic that you might mistake one for a real baby. There are dolls that are made to look just like real babies. These are called “reborn” babies, and they are a big hit right now!
