Finally, the weekends are here. After the hustle and bustle of the workdays, your time to be doing whatever you like has finally arrived. You’ve come up with so many plans in your head because you want your short days of freedom to count.
The weekends blur fast and before you know it, to your mild surprise, it’s a Sunday evening and you wonder where the days went and what the heck you accomplished. If you actually did something productive then we give you props. But in all likelihood though, a good number of you vegged on the coach to Netflix and potato chips, watched video after video on YouTube, or played video games until the wee hours of the morn. Whatever happened to having fun in the sun?
Technology happened, that’s why. And while we’re not complaining, when all forms of entertainment seem to be readily available thanks to a single piece of technology at home, our interest in spending our time playing outdoors diminishes.
In this case, we need to really motivate ourselves to get up and get moving, for our health’s sake. Explore new activities and hobbies. To you out there who are looking for a new way to spend their time outdoors sans the “I hope I just stayed home” mindset, auto toys can help divert your attention and have fun for real while basking in the sun. With auto toys, you can have your choice of a car, helicopter, or even a remote controlled boat, if that’s more your thing.
1It’s fun driving cool stuff
You don’t need scientific studies to know this is true! So, why not tap into this love for driving and maybe purchase a toy car that you can drive in your backyard?
Make sure to get one that looks cool and implements lots of features that will look cool for an adult. John from RC Rank says big, fast trucks with lots of cool features and powerful engines are the most popular. Kinda gives you Fast and Furious vibes, doesn’t it?
2You will make new friends
If you’re more of a Grinch, then an auto toy hobby may get you out of your shell. Making friends as an adult is a lot more difficult than it is for kids. Priorities shift and, in most cases, life gets in the way.
Still, it’s important to have friends and an RC hobby can be a great way to meet new people who like the same things. All over the USA and the world, people organize RC races and tournaments that bring passionate players together.
Take note, however, that it doesn’t necessarily have to be a big event. You can go and find a few people with RC toys in your neighborhood and you can easily set up a race in no time.
3It is relaxing and fun
If you’re under a lot of stress (and who isn’t these days?), an RC toy may give you the right avenue for release. You can have a lot of fun with the right toy, so get something you really like.
For instance, if you’re passionate about flying or aviation, get a RC helicopter or a drone. If you’re passionate about water navigation, an RC boat may be a better choice.

4Bonding with the kids
Our busy and jampacked schedules can often result in neglecting quality time with the kids and our spouse. So, to rectify this and be able to spend time outdoors together, get together by bonding through a cool, fun activity, such as auto toys.
This is a hobby that offers a lot of bonding opportunities. You can try racing or putting together kits and DIY projects to improve your toys.
With so many movies, shows, and music videos shot nowadays with the help of drone technology, your kids will surely find your hobby more than mildly interesting. The possibilities for family projects are endless.
A few final words
While it may seem silly to think of an adult playing with a remote controlled gadget, it is a healthy hobby that will get you off the couch and breathe fresh air outside. It’s also relaxing and creates a wide range of opportunities to make new acquaintances and even friends.
