Whether a pint-sized petrol head or a big kid, this Mini radio-control car will send their excitement levels from 0 to 60 in no time
Back in my day, when Percy Pig was just a glint in his parents’ eyes, being able to control a small car without wires was tantamount to witchcraft. One Christmas, I was so mesmerised by one I was given, I forwent my turkey sandwich and zoomed my car up and down the road until the whine of the motor turned into a hum – then silence as the batteries died. And all these years later I still have that little frisson of excitement when I get my hands on one – add the retro charm of this Mini Cooper and I’m sold, and the car fans in your life will be too.
