Check out the size next to my watch! Puny!

Now, from the genuine toy department, check out these cute little things I bought from London Drugs last night....

These are fully functioning (forward, reverse, left, right steering) micro R/C cars I got for $17 each (bought two, on different frequencies, to "race") that come complete with a remote which has a built in charging port for the cars.

The cars are so bloody small, that even a AAA battery won't fit inside them, so they have a built in rechargeable battery and charge right on the remote controls, off the two AA batteries inside the remote.

It only takes about 45 seconds to charge, and they'll run full out for about 3 or 5 minutes. We've already had 'tabletop" races with them, it's a blast. They're surprisingly fast too - faster even than the larger "Canned Heat" cars from Tyco.

Oh... and just like my Mini Z cars, Teddy the dog is deathly afraid of these micro mites. Why he can chase tiny tennis balls and other dog toys, but be afraid of these... sigh.
