AR Drone

Who makes it: Parrot
What it costs: $300
Why we like it: It's no toy for tots. The four-rotor AR Drone uses dual ultrasonic altimeters, a three-axis accelerometer, gyroscopes, and Wi-Fi. Your iOS and Android devices become the controller. It's not just model-plane fun, either. Augmented-reality video games and an onboard camera deliver hours of enjoyment.
