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.

The National Geographic Explorer Series of Toys Gets Full Review

Uncle Milton has now released a series of nine toys under the National Geographic label. The toys are being call the National Geographic Explorer Series. We did a quick search for reviews on the National Geographic toys and found this excellent video review from DadDoes.Com –

The video shows 3 toys from the line – the Sky Flare, Shoe Lights and Earth Tag.  After watching the video, it is clear the toys do not represent brand new concepts.  Most of the toys have already been made in other forms, but it is the Activity Guide that comes with it that gives the toy the National Geographic feel.

With all the electronics my kids play, I am into any toy that gets them playing outside and learning more about our planet and the environment.  I think I will give some of the toys a try.
