how safe is using the remote car toy from radiation, especially for kids,

The manufacturers claiming that it will be safe, but is that 100 % safe over kids.

The is no danger at all. RC devices operate at frequencies below visible light. Also, this question is probably considered off-topic as it does not ask for specific physics concepts. –  Jonas Jul 7 at 11:28

migrate to skeptics.stackexchange, please? –  Carl Witthoft Jul 7 at 11:38
    
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about safety. (Also, too old for migration by now) –  David Z Dec 14 at 8:28

The remote car toy radiation are radio waves. So it's as dangerous as using a radio... The power of thoses emitter are not enought to be dangerous. So it's safe for your kids.

Radiation is only damaging to DNA when it is ionising (contains enough energy to remove electrons from atoms). This occurs in frequencies higher than visible light (UV, x-rays, gamma rays). Anything below that, such as radio waves that RC toys use, won't cause any harm with that little power.
