Air Hogs Gyroblade RC Helicopter, A Fun New Toy for 2013

I have always been a fan of Air Hogs RC helicopters, but in recent years it has seemed like some companies were doing more in terms of innovation.  Yes, Air Hogs has things like the Battle Tracker and Hoover Assault – lots of bling for their RC toys, but I am talking about pure remote control helicopter flying fun.

The Air Hogs Gyroblade Helicopter Proves Air Hogs Still Has It!

I just read about the new Air Hogs Gyroblade helicopter.  Here is a quick blurb on it –

“With full 3-channel control and gyroscopic stabilization, the Gyroblade is a state-of-the-art high performance R/C heli. Its metal reinforced body provides enhanced protection against crash landings making it extremely durable.”

That all sounded great, but that is just what Air Hogs sais – not very objective.  So, I did a little searching and found this video of the Air Hogs Gyroblade –

Wow, that looks pretty incredible.  I love the single rotor design and just seeing the way they control the forward and backward movement, it is clear that a lot of design effort when into making this heli.

I am trying to find a place where I can buy the Air Hogs Gyroblade online – maybe it is not in stores yet?  I just checked DadDoes.Com to see if they have a written review and places to buy – nothing up there yet.

Well, I will keep looking for the Air Hogs Gyroblade Helicopter and once I find it I will post a full review.

 

Is There Any Place That Posts Real World Toy Reviews for 2013?

The other day, my 10 year old son asked me this very question –

“Dad, with all the stuff on Google, I can’t find any real and honest toys reviews.  Am I looking in the wrong place?”

As you can see, I have a very wise son.  He is basically right, it is very hard to find real world and honest toy reviews.  The task was made harder by the fact that he was looking for Toy Reviews for 2013 and it was still 2012.  But come on, he is only 10!

Where Are The Honest Toy Reviews?

It turns out that most sites create a toy review in this way…

  • Read a Press Release on a New Toy
  • Write an Intro Paragraph about the New Toy
  • Close with How Fun the New Toy Is

Yep, you read that right – countless toy reviews are based on press releases.  In fact, many writers never touch the toys they are reviewing.

How Do You Know if They Really Reviewed the Toys?

Guess what my son figured out – videos don’t lie!  He found this DadDoesBlog Toy Review Channel and it has videos of the writers playing with the toys.  Boom – instant proof that they actually played with the toys.  We watched countless videos from DadDoes.Com and they were great.  My son is hooked and so am I.
