You know what toy has stood the test of time and still rules in our house?
Hot Wheels. Yes those tiny cars that every kid loves to play with and dream about driving one day. Both our boys have loved Hot Wheels since birth it seems. The cars, the cartoons, the bikes, the gear, the colouring books and everything else Hot Wheels.
We can barely get by the giant bin of cars at the grocery store without a meltdown for a new car.
I also love Hot Wheels. They have been around since I was a kid. They are quality built and they keep turning out new versions. The wheels are always aligned for smooth rides and the crazy tracks you can build are what kids dream of.
Yes, we love Hot Wheels.
So of course we are going to enter a contest that could win us a trip to Los Angeles and the ultimate Hot Wheels experience. Our two boys would lose their mind.
Head’s up, even though it seems like it is for kids, the adults need to do the entering.
