Every year around the holidays, starting in late October, HSN has a lot of products at special prices for gift giving including Odyssey remote control cars.
What interested me in these cars in particular is that they come in a 2 pack. Both cars are very similar but they have 2 different channels so both cars can be played with in the same area at the same time by 2 different individuals… I would say children, but we all know that adults have just as much fun with these toys as the kids do! This 2 pack is ideal because we buy gifts for 2 young boys in the same family… It makes it easier to give them a similar gift so they do not argue over it… but with the different channels they each have one that is distinctly their own.
Plus both cars are just $20! Yes, TOGETHER they are $20 - NOT each! How cool is that!
And the batteries were all INCLUDED!! YES!
What is worse than a child opening up a toy on any occasion to find that it needs batteries and either they do not have the right kind or not enough? No worries there!
They are not huge cars, pretty good sized… The ones I chose had big clear tires that lit up, making it extra fun to play with them in the dark. They also did a lot of cool stunts… and if they tipped over a couple of flicks of the remote would set them right on their way. The tires were much bigger than the body of the car which allowed them to take the beating, making the car more durable and able to fall over and over and over again without damaging the harness of the car.
I purchases these from HSN because they have a special warranty that allows purchasers to return items purchased for gift giving from their October start to early January… this made me feel better, but I still tested the items when I received them because although I can return them after the holidays for my money back these cars run out of stock so I wouldn’t want the boys to be disappointed if I could not get a replacement.
