by Spin Master
Spin Master have just released this innovative and unique remote control toy in their popular Air Hogs range.
It is called the Hover Assault and it is an amazing remote controlled toy that is designed to travel on land as well in the air.
What is the Air Hogs Hover Assault?
Many of today's toys are moving with the times and becoming much more advanced and high tech and this also applies to radio controlled toys. Many children today love to use a remote control to drive and have control over their own miniature cars, helicopters and planes.
It is often necessary for parents to ask their children to choose between a remote controlled car or a hovering vehicle (a plane or a helicopter) as their budgets won't stretch to buying them both. However, for the first time ever both of these are now available in one in the all new 'Air Hogs Hover Assault' toy from Spin Master.
Not only can it be driven across the ground, but it can also be made to jump over obstacles as well as fly in the sky! The Air Hogs Hover Assault is a unique and powerful radio controlled hybrid toy.

Is the Air Hogs Hover Assault a good toy for my child?
This toy is aimed at older children over the age of 10 years who love to play with remote control toys. Children of this age and over will get many hours of entertainment and enjoyment with their friends and family from this innovative new car meets helicopter toy!
Once they have learnt how to control this toy they will love using it to show off their skills to their friends! They can use it to simply drive down the road whilst at the same time skillfully jumping over all the potholes and any other obstacles in the way and then using it to soar high to the top of their house to target an enemy with a missile attack!
We should point out here that learning to fly the Hover Assault does takes some time and skill and therefore patience and concentration is required from the child and whoever is teaching them. Therefore learning to control this toy will definitely help your child to learn valuable life skills such as patience!
What do other customers think?
As the Hover Assault is such a new toy to the market there aren't yet any customer reviews available However, we feel sure that as we near Christmas 2012 there will be many positive reviews from happy customer to be found on the internet.
We feel that the Air Hogs Hover Assault is a fun and entertaining toy for older children aged 10 years and over. The toy is aimed at boys but there may be lots of older girls who would enjoy playing with it too!
Once children master how to control the Hover Assault they will really enjoy playing with it and showing off their skills to their friends and family. They can learn to do so many different things with it including driving, hoping, soaring flying, firing missiles - in fact all the things that 10 year old boys (and some girls!) love to do.
We feel that considering that this toy is basically 2 remote controlled toys rolled into one and includes missiles and targets that it has an attractive price for a remote controlled toy.
This toy is already tipped to be a huge best seller this Christmas 2012 by some of the leading toy retailers including Tesco's so we would recommend buying the Air Hogs Hover Assault toy early in order to avoid disappointment.
