I received a sample for this review/feature. Opinions expressed are my own.
Little Tikes is one of my all time favorite brands because they make top quality toys for babies and kids that are built to really last. We have been playing with their toys since Big Sis was born almost 9 years ago and now they are being passed on to our third child to play with. Some of their latest toys look pretty awesome and the My First Drone might be the coolest of them all.
Our family owns a few drones and by far the hardest part is learning the take off and then mastering the art of hovering. Those need to be learned before you can actually play with a drone…that is until now. My First Drone is PERFECT for the little ones in your life! With a single touch to the up button it automatically takes off and hovers!!!!! Then your child uses the remote to control direction. It really is that easy!
To get started you need to put batteries in the remote and then you plug the drone into the remote to charge it. You will be up in running in less than 30 minutes. The important tips to remember are to keep fingers away from the spinning propellers and to start on a nice flat surface. Lil Sis actually made a landing pad for her drone.
Press the up button once to make the drone start up and fly upward to height level 1. It even makes a cool take off sound! Holding the up button will elevate the drone to height level 2 and after 5 seconds go back to height level 1. Press the down button once to lower the height level and holding the down button for 2 seconds will land the drone complete with landing sound. In an emergency just press the STOP button to stop the propellers.
Press the left button for it to turn left and the right to turn right. Hold the left or right button down and it will spin.
We have played with this drone for hours and it has fallen close to 100 times and no damage yet (knock on wood) so I definitely find the whole design very sturdy. Big Sis is about to turn 9 and she absolutely loves this drone more than her own drone. This one is just so easy to fly!
This RC Drone is great for first flyers looking to start their aerial adventures. Add in fun lights, sounds and cool design and the My First Drone is AMAZING for little ones looking to play out their high-flying dreams!
