Kid boys love to play with cars. My boys, for one, like to play around with their toy cars all of the time. If it is not a toy car that they can ride, it may be a small toy that they can imagine in their fantasies driving around into other places. No matter how big or small, toy cars just have that certain appeal in my boys. Having the Hot Wheels Car Maker Playset will even make their eyes twinkle if I had one for them.
Looking at the Hot Wheels Car Maker Playset from Mattel, you see a different kind of play that car-loving kids can experience. Instead of having them play with ready-made racers and other car models, kids can have the chance to make their own cars. Kids can create racers in a matter of minutes. Kids can easily create their very own Hot Wheels racer from a stick of wax.
The Hot Wheels Car Maker Playset features a machine that comes complete with cool lights, music and voice prompts that guide kids through the entire car-making process. Kids can choose an ideal car mold they wish to make and a wax stick of a particular color that they want their car to be. After plugging the unit, kids can then insert the mold into the machine and place the chosen stick of wax into it. In just as little as eight minutes, the wax transforms into molded Hot Wheels car body. Kids can then attach the molded car body into one of three chassis included in the play set. A decal and sticker pack is also available to help kids further decorate their newly minted Hot Wheels car.
The Hot Wheels Car Maker Playset comes with a car maker unit, two car molds, 10 Protoshotz wax sticks of various colors, and a decal and sticker pack. It is designed for kids from 8 years old and up. It is available at Toys R’ Us for $55. Refillable wax sticks are also available for $7.
