Flytech Dragonfly and Butterfly by WowWee

WowWee Robotic DragonFly – Green (49 MHz) The FlyTech DragonFly by WowWee is sure to delight kids ages 7 and up. It’s a radio-controlled flying “robot” that flaps its wings quite realistically. Kids use a remote to control the robotic insect, and it’s really quite a wonder to see–the Dragonfly is actually very dainty as it glides smoothly in the air and lands with finesse as well. Although kids can fly the insect outside, the weather has to be just right for it–forget about doing it on a windy day. It’s better to play with the Dragonfly indoors. The charge doesn’t last long–approximately 5 to 8 minutes total–which actually keeps kids from overdosing on the toy and anxious for it to charge again. Here’s a video of the toy in action: Kids can easily see when the dragonfly is running out of steam, simply by checking its status through the LED-lit eyes. There is also a butterfly version of the toy, the Wow Wee Butterfly Indoor Outdoor Flyer: Pink, which is likely to appeal to girls as well. This one is also quite dainty, quiet, and fun to watch in action. See our Edutaining Kids review of the toys here: Edutaining Kids Gift Guides for Kids Ages...
