Radio control horse racing?

Radio control horses
Yep – the craze with miniature radio control toys is no longer confined to helicopters and planes. Now, you can buy a remote controlled horse!

There’s certainly no shortage of those tiny remote control toys which charge from the transmitter and run for about 10-15 minutes. Typically, they are micro helicopters or little airplanes.

Well, if you’re more of a land person or animals are your thing, you can play too. These tiny remote controlled horses have the usual remote control functionality: left, right, forward. The difference is that they don’t use wheels – they actually “run”, although I’d classify it more as “directional jiggling”. You can race up to four of the horses at once and you can even get a little track to hold your races on.

Each horse/rider is $40 and the track is another $90. Definitely not cheap, but who knows? If you can find some sucker friends to race against while betting (and give them weak batteries), you might be able to pay it off!



  1. This reminds me of the toy horse racing track that was used in the movie Needful Things. It didn’t work out so well for that guy, so buyers beware! This thing creeps me out!

  2. Wow! I used to have a football game where the field would vibrate and teh players moved. we had tons of fun it. I bet this horse game is a load of fun!
