TimetoPlayMag.com Ratings and Reviews
At TimetoPlayMag.com, we want to engage, inform and entertain our readers to give them the benefit of our knowledge, experience and the breadth of products we cover. We look at more than 10,000 new toys and children’s products every year, and our primary purpose is to help you make the best choices for the kids in your life.
Our goal is to give you the real story on what you’ll find when you bring a toy home. And we know that every kid and every family is different. That’s why we always say: “The hot toy is only hot if it’s hot for your child.”
Our editorial team has more than 100 years combined experience working in the toy industry. Our rating system ranks toys on 4 key criteria:
- Fun — Does it engage the child? Does it inspire imaginative play? Does it contribute to creative expression? Is it entertaining?
- Repeat Play OR Collectibility — Some toys are played with, some are collected. If we feel a toy is better suited for collectibility, we’ll rank it based on Collectibility instead of Repeat Play.
- Repeat Play — Will kids come back to it over time? Does the toy allow diverse imaginative play experiences? Does it provide longer-term play value?
- Collectibility — Some toys may have limited traditional play, but kids will treasure them as collectibles.
- Assembly/Instructions — Is the toy easy to assemble? Are the instructions clear?
Over the years we’ve learned a lot about what makes great toys and exciting play experiences. We want to help you create the best experiences for your kids and your family.
Ultimately, you’re the best judge of what you want to bring into your home — and what’s best for your kids. And because you’re an important part of the Time to Play family, we invite you to let us know if you ever find an error or have any ideas how we can better help you. After all, we exist for one reason: to help you have more fun!
What It Is
The Spy Video Car VX6, part of Wild Planet's Spy Gear line, uses infrared technology so kids can go undercover for their next spy mission. Kids can navigate this stealth R/C car in the dark and see live video of their surveillance on the controller's color LCD screen—all while hidden from sight. The screen also shows signal strength and battery life. Use the remote control to move the car forward, backward, left, and right. Use the infrared night vision mode for driving the Spy Video Car in the dark.
Why It’s Fun
Kids will love being able to control the car from long distances and even through walls thanks to the infrared technology while they go on spy missions. As with all Spy Gear products, the Spy Video Car VX6 offers kids lots of spy roleplay opportunities.
Who It’s For
The Spy Video Car VX6 is for ages 8 and up.
What to Be Aware of
The Spy Video Car VX6 requires 10 AA batteries, which are not included.
The Spy Video Car VX6 is an update on Wild Planet's original Spy Video TRAKR. What's different about this new car is that the price has been greatly reduced and it's much simpler to use than the original. The car does not record video; it simply transmits the picture to the handheld unit.
Don't drive the car in sand, water, or snow.
