Kyosho Blizzard SR

Buy it for your kid, but play with it yourself: The Blizzard SR is an addictive remote-controlled beastie that excels on snow and ice. The surprisingly quick dual-motor track vehicle charges up steep inclines that would send most four-wheelers tumbling. Its snowproof chassis and working plow mean it can muscle its way over ice chunks and even through powder piles. [$280; amainhobbies.com]
