Someone recently bought Mini-MaFt a ‘My First Remote Controlled Car’ as a “your not the special baby anymore but we feel sorry for you so here’s a present” gift. However, it doesn’t use RF as most radio controlled cars do, no, this one uses Infra Red.

Not a problem really – the car functions adequately in both forward and reverse using the supplied controller. It also functions adequately using any remote control in the house… You can be flicking channels and this little toy car starts rolling along the floor with it’s lights flashing away!

The thing is, it always catches me off guard and makes me jump when flicking between episodes of The Simpsons!
