Even though I’m well past the age where I should be wandering around a Toys R’ Us without kids in tow, I find the stuff being revealed at Toy Fair to be just as cool as the gear unveiled at CES. Mattel’s ‘Stealth Rides’ for example, which will be sold under the Hot Wheels brand, are fully functioning RC cars that fold down to a credit card sized package that’s about as thick as your average cellphone, making them extremely pocket-friendly.
They’ll be available in August for about $25 each in 5 different models including a couple of cars, a couple of tanks and the Tumbler from the recent Batman movies. And while usually these types of miniature RC cars that charge in the remote last for just a few minutes between charges, apparently the Stealth Rides will run for an impressive 30 minutes.
