The benefits of remote control and robotic toys for children plus 5 cool RC toys


Following on from our post about STREAM toys and the benefits of them for children here we are looking at the benefits of RC (remote control) and robotic toys for children.

STREAM learning

RC and robotic toys support STREAM learning. With RC and robotic toys being a tech toy they introduce children to the wonderful world of technology in a very fun way. Children can learn how a robot works and how to control one or can learn cause and effect as they control their RC toy. 

As well as putting the T in STREAM thanks to the technological aspect, RC and robotic toys can also support other elements of STREAM learning. Depending on the type of RC or robot toy it can support science, reading, arts and so much more! For example a stunt RC car can spark conversation and learning about science topics such as motion, force and speed. Or a robot who sings and dances encourages learning the arts. 

Helps develop key skills

RC and robotic toys also provide physiological benefits. They can help enhance spatial awareness, spatial intelligence, develop awareness skills and increase dexterity and hand-eye coordination. 

In addition younger children can develop their fine motor skills as they use remotes to control their vehicles and robots. Remote control toys can also help children understand direction as they move the toy.

Spark imagination and creativity

Playing with RC vehicles and robots can inspire children to be creative and can help children use their imagination. For example a child playing with a stunt RC car might imagine they are a stunt person performing death defying stunts or create a race track to speed around.


RC and robotic toys are pure, simple fun. Kids can enjoy socialising with friends whilst playing on them. They can also encourage kids to get away from screens and RC vehicles that can be used outdoors can get kids out of the home and active.
