It's on the wish list for our almost 9 year old daughter. She's enjoyed our relatives' toys at family gatherings, and we'd like to find one for her under the tree. She's really good at getting them to move, and I think it's time for her own.
I've been poking around, and looking in stores, and the choice is overwhelming. I just don't know what to look for, or what features make a difference. Some I've seen listed or in different places appear to be the same copters, but under different names.
Her main criteria: She'd like it to have, or to be able to carry, a basket. I'm sure she envisions taking the hamster for a ride - though that will not ever happen - but she'd like to use it for, say, when GI Joe rescues Skipper or a puppy or something.
Several reviews of the one she saw in the store and think she wants are disappointing
. We do want it to be fun for her to use.
Our concerns: Doesn't suck up batteries or need constant re-charging for only 5-9 minute flights. Can withstand a few crashes. Good for indoor or outdoor use. Priced somewhere between $30-60, or not much more than that. Can be purchased in either Toronto or Buffalo, or via Amazon.
Thanks, in anticipation, of any help!
