If you're looking for a great gift for a kid, find a remote control helicopter for kids. There are quite a few RC helicopters on the market.

Inexpensive RC copters for kids are a great choice - since they don't cost much, you won't spend a small fortune on the first machine for your child. Besides that, if the kid will accidentally damage (or even destroy) the machine, you won't lose a whole lot of money.
