Heli Beast - Radio Control Toy Review and Giveaway

I received product for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
 

My boys are teens now and don't "play" with a lot of toys these days but they like all things R/C. I think they got that passion from our biggest boy and my husband, Jason. I'm not sure if it's the concept of being in control of the object with a remote control or watching the stunts and tricks they can do, but remote and radio controlled toys can entertain them for hours. All three of my guys have had numerous runs with the Heli Beast from Silverlit and get much amusement from it.

Heli Beast from Silverlit is a 2 channel radio control toy that includes beast gear. It's available at Hammacher and Kohl's.com for the ARV of $39.99

Heli Beast requires six AA batteries so I had to run to the store to purchase some. After we were all set getting it out of the box and ready to go, I practically got run over by the guys to see who'd play with it first. Since having the R/C beast/copter combo, I've seen my husband and boys get it out again and again to play. I won't even lie, I've even taken a gander at it a few times. Yes, it's that fun.

Using the transmitter, Heli Beast walks around like, well, a beast on the ground in all directions. It works best on a flat surface. With the push of a button, it can jump over obstacles. By pushing the throttle on the transmitter, the beast goes in the air and flies like a helicopter. Hence the name "Heli Beast". The only complaint I've heard from the guys is that they wish they could get more use out of it between charging times.  During times of use, it's been a great form of entertainment.

Win It!

One person will win a Heali Beast from Silverlit Toys.

*This is a Rafflecopter giveaway open to residents of the USA.*

Honestly, both modes would be amazing to my boys. Seeing it able to fly around and walk would have them jumping around in excitement. They would love to see this and enjoy being able to play with this.
