Gift cards are kind of a mixed bag, on one hand it ensures you can get exactly what you want as a gift, but on the other hand, it’s not the most exciting thing to unwrap. Thankfully, Target is still doing whatever they can to make gift cards slightly more exciting, and this year they’ve got what is probably the world’s first remote control gift card. It comes with a tiny Christmas mouse inside a miniature red Target shopping cart which can be controlled via the antenna and button-equipped remote, which also happens to be the gift card. Buying it online requires you to put at least $25 on the card, though I’m not sure if the same minimum applies when buying it in-store.

  1. I have a pile of gift cards in the drawer. I just don't have a use for them other than shimming up a table. Why would anyone want a plastic card as a gift anyway?

    What? They have cash val……Ohhhh, that's different.

  2. I like r/c cars, but I don't like r/c cars that don't turn. Good idea, flawed execution. What we need now is a basket, a die, and few more clever gift cards and we can play the game Mouse Trap.

  3. It's a neat idea to make them interesting, but I'd have to be small to want this toy, and then I wouldn't want a plastic card… I wouldn't care the amount on it, it's a card and not a real toy. I would think recorded messages on them, would be better.
