Looking for Awesome RC Monster Trucks for a Kid?

If you're looking for the best remote control monster trucks for kids, you're in the right place. You will find here some of the best RC monster trucks available on the market.

Why kids love RC cars and trucks and why parents often buy them for their kids? It's quite simple - remote control toys have much more capabilities than normal toys. One can really drive that car or truck into a self-made garage using vehicle's control, not their own hands.

Of course remote control cars (and all other RC toys) can cause some damage when used by an unexperienced user, but most times this possible damage is very slight because we don't keep our most precious things on the floor.

One more thing to remember - RC cars and monster trucks are a great choice if one would like to introduce a kid to the RC world. They're easy to handle (unlike RC helicopters, which require some practice) and if the kid doesn't really know what to do next, he can simply stop pushing any controls, what will cause the vehicle to stop.

Traxxas RTR 1/10 Stampede is by far the best, but also the most expensive, RC monster truck described in this article. It has it all: horsepower, tough suspension and waterproof electronics, so you can have fun with it in almost any conditions, just remember to not submerge it in water.

This RC monster truck has 3 modes: training, off-road and race, depending on your needs at the moment. Training mode is great for kids and people who drive a very powerful RC car for the first time. This beast accelerates quickly and can even reach speeds of 25-30 mph with the right batteries. That's why you should be very careful when using it (especially indoors). Chances are you (or your kid) will break some of its parts anyway, but that's ok - you can buy replacement parts when needed. Just remember to be careful, because those replacement parts can become pretty expensive if you'll order them very often and in large quantities. All in all, if you're looking for a powerful (although entry-level) RC monster truck, this is probably the best choice.
