Like amateur magicians, childhood toys are full of old gimmicks and appear to wince when sawn in half. Enlist a dependable new plaything instead with today’s Groupon to RC Hobby Shop in Sugar Land. Choose between the following options:
- For $30, you get a Blade Scout RC helicopter (a $60 value).
- For $10, you get $20 worth of remote-controlled toys and models.<p>
Touting more than 40,000 toys, RC Hobby Shop entertains kids and adults with 100 radio-controlled cars and 250 radio-controlled planes. Customers can opt to foster their exploration of high altitudes with the Blade Scout three-channel helicopter. Designed for beginners, the chopper responds to pilot controls, such as swooping through the sky or launching attacks on enemy frisbees.
Alternatively, knowledgeable staff members circulate the rows of shelves, breaking up miniature traffic jams and doling out insight to customers regarding the selection of plastic model planes and car sets ($15), model rockets ($20), and train sets ($50). Guests can sidestep positive and negative battery charges by dabbling with non-battery-driven classic toys, such as board games ($10), yo-yos ($10), and balsa gliders ($5).
RC Hobby Shop
Radio-controlled cars speed along the dirt path of twin, 20,000-square-foot off-road racetracks at RC Hobby Shop, spurred on by shouts of encouragement and furiously twisting thumbs. Too colossal to fit inside the building, the tracks embody RC Hobby Shop’s serious approach to having fun. Inside the 9,400-square-foot retail space, stacks of toys line the aisles and beckon kids and hobbyists with battery-operated modern gadgets and timeless classics such as yo-yos and board games. Model makers of every age can stoke their creative sparks with detailed modeling kits that reconstruct classic cars, elaborate train sets, and Lilliputian crime scenes.
