I saw this radio controlled helicopter in Suntec that can fly all the way up to the 3rd floor of Suntec city mall. Sold by Carrefour. Can even navigate left and right. Not one of those whimpy IR controlled things. For only $39.90. Buy buy buy!

Those copter looks fun to get for kid, especially those tiny copter that can fly indoor. Anyone has those? How is it, how long does the battery last?

I think I would be more worried about how long the toy will last given all the falls from 3 storey heights.

Books - we should buy the kids books for Christmas.

Talking about books, I have bought a whole set of books from Grolier http://www.grobooks.com/ for my kid that cost me a whole good $2000. So I suppose I am not getting anymore such books for a long time. Hard to decide on what present to get. Probably just some train set or anything that is not too expensive, my kid already has 2 huge boxes of toys.

I have always wondered if anyone would actually fork out thousands of bucks for kids' books in this age of the Internet. Now I know there are still plenty of people who would do that. Thank God for Kiasuparents.com :D

PS. Let me know if you are going to sell that set.
