Our Top Picks

Choosing the Best RC Car for Girls

1. Recommended Age

This is always an essential feature to examine when buying clothes, toys or gear for kids. It determines whether your child will be able to enjoy the product and use it safely, so make sure the age range of your purchase is appropriate for your kiddo.

2. Batteries

Almost all RC toys are battery operated, so it will benefit you to know what batteries are needed to operate the toy and if they are included. This can help prevent disappointment and facilitate frustration free play as toys will be ready to use out of the box when you’re prepared with the correct batteries.

3. Style

RC cars for girls come in lots of styles, from convertibles to cruisers to sports cars and more. If your girl has a favorite, this may be a determining factor, but either way it’s helpful to know the style of the vehicle you’re buying.

4. Size

Some RC cars are fairly compact while others have some heft – one on our list is so large, kids can ride it. It’s important to get the right size car for your child and the space you have, so pay attention to the size of the vehicle when making your choice.

5. Includes

All of the vehicles on our list come with a remote, but some also some with a figure and/or accessories. This can make playtime more fun, and if you’re looking for a playset over merely a vehicle, may be a determining factor in your choice.

6. Special Features

Many of the vehicles on our list have unique features that distinguish them from other RC cars, such as working lights or moving mirrors. These features can be a lot of fun, and knowing where they’re present and what they are may be something that informs your final choice.
