Getting gifts for kids used to be a piece of cake. But not anymore! It’s almost like they get a memo right from the womb about what kind of toys are in vogue and the ones they should look out for. When getting gifts for kids now, you have to consider a whole lot of things.
Your gift has got to be fun and interesting enough to catch their attention and keep it for a long, long time (which is good for you too, mom).
Features of the Remote Control Pirate Ship
This Remote Control Pirate Ship is not an official Pirates of the Caribbean merchandise. But it ticks all the right boxes as per pirate ships. All that is left is for your kid to take control and go find some “treasures” to pillage.
The RC ship has a remote controlled underwater motor that propels the ship through water and allows it to float.
The remote control unit has a functional alarm that goes off when the ship is going out of range. But in case you somehow do not hear the alarm, the ship automatically turns around if it’s going out of range. So you’ll never lose your ship in the middle of the “sea” in your backyard.
The ship requires a 9V battery in the controller and 6 AAs in the motor. You’ll have to get the batteries yourself, though. They do not come included.
There is also an alarm that warns you when the batteries are running low.
Note, though, that this toy is not suitable for kids below the age of 7.
