Hot Wheels Super-Fan Family Giveaway!

Hot Wheels cars are something that I can remember playing with as a child. I'm not sure how many cars were mine, they probably were mostly my brothers'. I remember using our blocks to set up roadways for the cars. When we go to my parent's house, my kids will pull out that old, broken carrying case and play with many of the same Hot Wheels that my brothers and I played with as kids. I can remember getting some Hot Wheels cars for my 16th Birthday - one from my friend, one from someone else perhaps?

When my son was younger, we started to buy him Hot Wheels cars and a case to keep them in. We searched for a race track to play those cars and finally found one that we liked - it has multiple lanes and through some levers, you can switch the lanes the cars drive in as they circle the track and are propelled through, frequently leading to crashes. Those crashes of course are half the fun.

Do you have a Hot Wheels collection? You can currently add to that collection with one of four custom-designed Hot Wheels pullback racers. The cars are available from now until February 27th in specially-marked boxes of several Big G® cereals (Cinnamon Toast Crunch®, Cookie Crisp®, Lucky Charms®, Cheerios® and Reese’s Puffs®). These specially marked packages include one of the four custom-designed Hot Wheels pullback racers.

Giveaway

    My 5 year old son loves Hot Wheels. We have over a hundred diecasts, at least 10 trick track playsets, Wii games, a few regular playsets, a Hot Wheels bike, and a Hot Wheels playing table (sort of like a train table but made by Hot Wheels.) Needless to say that he is obsessed with Hot Wheels. My two year old son is slowly picking up his obsession.

    We are a Hot Wheels Super-Fan Family because everyone in our family loves Hot Wheels. I remember my younger brother (and me) playing with Hot Wheels in our youth. The Hot Wheels were passed on to my daughter who played with them and now we have passed those same cars down to my grandson who makes engine noises, carries the Hot Wheels everywhere, and plays with them for hours. He now possesses many 'antique' cars :-) When we go out shopping my husband almost always finds the need to buy a new Hot Wheels vehicle saying that our grandson doesn't have that particular one. Of course my husband wants to play with it too.

    My family is a Hot Wheels Super-Fan Family for three generations. I got my daughter started when she was a little girl as she was so much into cars. I loved to go to the races on Saturday night and had loved cars for a long time. I got my grandson alot of Hot Wheels for Christmas, and he has to have some in the car when they go to school.

    My ten year old son is the biggest Hot Wheels Fan. He has been collecting Hot Wheels since he was two. He gets at least one car a week and has no duplicates. That is A LOT OF CARS!!!! He can remember each one he has and knows who got him each one or where he got it. If one goes missing he goes nuts! He has them set up throughout the house just how he wants them and i am always stepping on those little cars. It drives me crazy!
