Ultimate Lightning McQueen RC Car by Sphero
If you thought the Sphero BB-8 was insane, then your little Cars fanatic will absolutely LOVE this latest release by the robotics company. Sphero partnered with Disney and recently dropped the Ultimate Lightning McQueen remote control car. A downloaded app lets you use your smartphone as the remote control and send Lightning speeding off to the finish line or get him to do cool doughnuts with the flick of a finger. His eyes are an LCD screen, so his expressions are spot-on, and his animatronic mouth moves while saying his favourite catchphrases, like “Ka-chow!” He can reach up to six miles per hour, has five touch sensors that trigger movement and leans in to every turn because he’s that life-like. Included in the app is a pit stop game that allows you to repair cars and there’s an interactive feature where Lightning watches the Cars movies with your kid and comments throughout. With over 300 phrases, they’ll never get bored of their new, lifelike companion.
