Who doesn’t love Hot Wheels? I have fond memories of Hot Wheels being around the house when I was a kid. I even remember countless friends and relatives playing with Hot Wheels. Now, my own son has quite a collection brewing.
Is it possible to perfect something as timeless as Hot Wheels? Instead of wondering, check out the new Mega Bloks Hot Wheels™ Super Race Set 8-in-1. This new package combines the thrill of Hot Wheels with the construction and creativity of Mega Bloks.
Mega Bloks recently sent me one of these things to test out—and my 8-year-old was pretty much frothing at the mouth about that. It sat in the corner for about two days, unopened. While there, he was constantly eyeballing it, studying the box, and asking, “Is today the day?”
When that day came, I can’t say that I was 100-percent excited at first. Typically, when I see a box that has “289 pcs” emblazoned across the front, I picture myself wincing with foot pain in the middle of the night. Even worse, I think about all of those pieces that end up whenever the extra sock goes—and how the set usually just sits after those few pieces have gone missing.
Well, that’s one of the great things about this package. Designed for ages 5 and up, the set does include instructions on how to build eight different cars. However, there are plenty of pieces, allowing kids to create something that they can truly call their own. My son had a blast sitting on the floor, spreading all of the pieces out (keeping each of the numbered bags in respective piles, of course), and building away. Then came the tweaking. Oh, there was so much tweaking! It’s a lot of fun and seeing that mind and those hands working away is definitely worth getting a few lodged in between my toes here and there.
Could you see your little one getting revved up about this set? Well, Mega Bloks has offered to send one of these sets out to one GeekMom reader, along with plenty of other goodies. The entire prize package includes the following:
This is a $100 prize package, people!
