Hot Wheels Brings Families Together!

Hot Wheels have spanned generations since 1968.  The Hot Wheels brand by Mattel, is one of the most famous toy car makers today.  It is not unusual for many automobile manufacturers have licensed Hot Wheels to make scale models of their vehicles.  Hot Wheels may have been originally thought up for children, adults continue to love and collect these small die cast vehicles too!  While we are a family of 2 boys and 2 girls, we ALL can get into the fun that is Hot Wheels!

Hot Wheels

As soon as the large box of Hot Wheels tracks and cars arrived, my kids were excited to open them up and start building.  I used their excitement to my advantage and made sure they knew that the living room had to be spotless before we started.  Before I knew it, they were working hard at cleaning up other toys and making sure all garbage was put away!

At first they found it really hard to decide what we would start with, but we decided to start with the 5-Lane Tower Starter Set.  It didn’t take long for us to put all the track pieces together and start racing our cars!  By the time Daddy came home from work, we had added a few more track sets and were having a blast!

Hot Wheels Tracks

Of course, once Daddy got home, he wanted to play too, and we added the Quick Kick Loop and the Launch Pack.  That night, before we knew it, it was past the kids bedtime, but we hardly noticed because we were having too much fun creating new track combinations.
