Remote Control Cars
This is one of those childhood toys that never go out of fashion. Because of this, it is a safe bet for any boy, young and old. The older they are, the more speed they will likely need and enjoy but whatever you go for, look for long battery life and simple controls. A teenager might like something more technical with a longer range and because all remote control cars are going to come up against a fair amount of punishment, make sure it has a durable build that can withstand the bumps and grazes it will be put through.
