You can see the full list of products recommended by the Dad’s Choice Awards HERE.
Maisto Extreme Beast (£50)
The hard-wearing Extreme Beast is a remote control car featuring spring suspension. Its TPE hobby-grade tyres provide extra grip for enhanced performance off-road. Operating on a 2.4GHz frequency, it benefits from reduced signal interference and has a control range of 70 m. What’s more the Extreme Beast can be driven alongside as many as 16 other remote control cars at the same time. Its pistol-grip controller features a proportional speed controller allowing for gradual speed increase/ decrease. Available from Amazon and including a rapid-charge battery pack/ charger, it promises hours of fun for 3-year-old beginners and 93-year old RC Car enthusiasts alike.
Pirate Robo Fish Play Set (£20)
This pirate themed aquatic robot play set includes a roomy fish bowl, pirate fort (coal black) and, of course, a robo fish. When dropped into the water, the fish comes to life. Exploring its environment, it swishes its tail in a very life-like fashion, carefully navigating the entire bowl while dashing in and out of the plastic fort. Available from Toymaster, Hamleys and Fenwicks, this is the perfect present for kids who want a pet – without the usual arguments over who should feed the fish or clean the bowl.
Tobar Edible Sweet Art Popsicles (£20)
Kids love creating things, and the fun gets even better when they can eat their creations afterwards. The Tobar Edible Sweet Art Popsicles set includes moulds, a cardboard ‘sweetshop’ and four coloured (white, yellow, pink and brown) blocks of sugar dough. Easy to use and offering the chance to make popsicles in an array of colourful combinations, this edible craft set will delight boys and girls of all ages. The Tobar Edible Sweet Art Popsicles Set can be purchased from Asda, John Lewis and Toymaster stores.
