Here at Maplin, we’ve always loved toys and hobbies. Whether it’s a toy for your child, or a gift for a grown-up who loves cool electronics, we have a wide range to choose from.


Drones are an important technological breakthrough used for many different applications, and have become a favourite product for anyone looking to experiment with aerial photography. We have the full range of DJI drones; from the class leading DJI Inspire Quadcopter for the drone connoisseur, to the more accessible DJI Phantom 3 Standard for those just starting out.

Remote Control Toys

Our selection of rc cars includes replicas of famous cars, including models by Ferrari, BMW and Mercedes Benz; perfect for any car lover who wants a Ferrari, but can’t quite afford the real thing. We also have a range of rc boats and helicopters, for those who want to have radio controlled fun off the road.

Ride-On Toys

Ride-on toys are always a great present for the kids; who didn’t want to drive around in a Lamborghini or on a motorbike when they were young? We have a wide selection to suit every budget, and aimed at different ages.
