This is a beautifully detailed galleon complete with full rigging, skull and crossbone bedecked sails, gunnels bristling with canons, and even a “firing” canon in the prow, is if not quite The Black Pearl, at least the coolest and most original RC boat to hit the pond this century. The paintwork is wonderfully detailed and it all looks very rough and rustic, which belies it’s rather zippy turn of speed.

The Remote Controlled Pirate Ship is powered by twin props, there’s a button on the remote that makes the canon rise, emit a sort of banging noise and glow red – it doesn’t actually fire anything as that would probably choke fish and alarm any ducks in the area. At 41cm long it’s a mighty ship, with rigging, sails, gunnels, the whole malarkey – a wonderfully regressive step forward (if that’s at all possible) in RC fun.

The price of the Remote Controlled Pirate Ship is about $72.

It’s a lunar model that moonlights as a night light. An authentically detailed moon with craters and dark and light patches automatically begins to glow when the sun sets. You can manually or automatically set it to any of 12 phases of the moon, using the discovery guide and audio CD to learn more about the Earth’s small satellite. Easily mounts to the wall, and comes with an infrared remote control. Auto shutoff preserves battery life; requires 2 AAA and 4 AA batteries (not included); the size of the Light-Up Moon is 10″ in diameter.

The price of the Light-Up Moon is $36.95

You hear some suspicious noise in the middle of the night while working in front of your PC and what do you do? Just turn on your Spy Video Car, adjust the camera angle, turn on the night vision, put on the Heads Up Display (HUD) visor, and drive your way to the suspicious noise. That’s right – this quiet R/C car has a video camera mounted on the front. It broadcasts to the black and white LCD HUD which plugs into the remote. You’ll see everything your Spy Car sees (in bright light or in total darkness). And since it rides really low to the ground, you’ll be able to go under tables, chair, pets, and anything else that gets in your way…
