Wear the lightweight frames with the single LCD lens to ensure you're the only one who views the video transmitted through your RC vehicle. Adjust the camera angle on the wireless spy car and send it on secret missions using the hand-held remote control. Observe the journey and the destination through the small screen attached to your headset. From the safety of your spy headquarters, watch what's going on wherever your video vehicle travels, indoors and out, up to 75 feet away. 90 day warranty. The ultimate spy rover is here!

By J. A. Edwards on September 5, 2006
Pretty expensive but I ended up splurging and getting it for my 8 year old nephew for this coming Christmas. I ended up giving it to him this weekend instead; I wanted to see it go too and couldn't wait 4 months!

My nephew REALLY likes it but, oy!, is the video bad -- what they show in the online commercial is quite a bit clearer and contrasty than what we see in our actual unit. I think the infrared aspect blurs things a bit and its sensitivity is pretty low in any case. You can't read ANY writing thru the video, regardless of size of print, etc. Still, the video link is minimally serviceable (adequate for manuevering with a little bit of practice) and my nephew has a BIG time sitting in his "command center" and sending it out on "remote missions" using only the onboard video link. Seems fairly robust and sturdy so far.

This was the one item my youngest son (6 years old) wanted for Christmas. He kept talking and talking about it. I could not find it anywhere at first. Walmart listed it for seventy but it was not available online from their site. I went to four different stores and while all the toy sections were aware of the product and claimed they had carried it, all were out of stock. I finally found it online through an Amazon.com reseller, but it was just over one hundred and with expediated shipping at over 30 dollars, well you do the math. It's not worth that much. Try to find it for 70 or less if possible, but honestly everywhere I did find it was roughly a hundred. Anyway, the toy itself is great fun. It's basically a remote control car with a spy camera on it that you can use to view anything it's pointed at and you view using spy glasses. The image is black and white and pretty good quality. It's equivalent to any remote video spycam you see shown on tv like from atm's or other spycams. The car is also very quite. I've heard reviewers write it's loud. Ours is not at all. It's not completely silent. If you are sitting in a room reading a book you will hear it come in, but if there is any noise in the room at all, a conversation going on, the tv on, or a radio at normal levels, the car can sneak in unnoticed so beware those of you in the shower, lock the doors. The kids have great fun trying to sneak in on parents activities. I found myself typing on the computer several times only to see this thing watching me and hear my kids in the other room laughing. It's great fun to pick it up or crouch down in front of the lens and make silly faces........you'll hear large laughter from the other rooms. Enjoy.Read more ›

It's great concept for a toy. There's a few issue's that I found personally. First of all it's supposed to be a "spy" car, when it moves its a little nousy not loud but noisy. If I was sitting in a room I could hear it coming. Second, the car doesn't have much of a range on it. I would say a good 15ft. which ain't much in the R/C world. The car starts to get a little glitchy through walls. Once again going back to the "spy" aspect of it. If i'm spying I would like to be able to stay out of sight. I think they should do a little more work on this toy and it would be a awesome toy.

I bought this car for my 7 yr. old daughter for Christmas. I was skeptical based on a few of the negative reviews and knowing how toys barely live up to their hype.

Well, this one does. The range on the car is not huge, but it can go from room to room while the driver remains in place. Keep in mind this has a black & white 'monitor' in the glasses. Adjusting the glasses so that small children can see clearly into it is probably the only trouble you'll have. Once my daughter was able to view the 'monitor' successfully, it's amazing how well she could navigate tricky paths through rooms without being able to see the car.

As far as 'stealthness', our car is very quiet. In a quiet room, you'll hear it coming, but normal household noise covers it. Battery life is good too.

If you're hesitating to buy this toy figuring it can't do what it claims to, don't worry, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised with it.

We bought this for my 11 yr old for Christmas and he absolutely loves it. He is very much into spying and he has already gotten a lot of use out of this car. He will sit in one room in the house and roam the rest with the car. It's funny, and we have to laugh....he will enter a room and you can tell when he is watching you because the car will get into a position and just sit there and look at you. I'll be in bed at night and hear the car roaming my room just looking around. Definately a very fun toy.

My sons got this for Christmas and just love it! I enjoyed playing with it, too. Have lots of batteries on-hand, though. After an involved day or two of play, you'll need to replace the batteries. It also gets slower as the batteries run out and the video feed wavers although the car will still drive for a while with poor video. If you're not a pushover like me, changing the batteries when the video signal gets weak, your batteries will last you longer. It's one of the best toys the boys have ever had, unlike a lot of toys that look cool but barely work. No assembly--just insert batteries and plug in the eye viewer and go-go-go!
