Coolest Hot Wheels Cars

Anyone with a childhood worth recounting remembers them: the multi-entry intersections complete with spinning speed boosters, the daredevil jumps, and the vertical starts. They all fall under the trademark name that never fails to bring back memories: Hot Wheels.

But of course, Hot Wheels wasn’t first known for the tracks but for the cars themselves. They were first manufactured by Mattel as competitors to Matchbox cars. Ironically, the company who makes Matchbox cars, Tyco, is now owned by Mattel as well. Here are a listing of some of the coolest Hot Wheels cars ever manufactured.

The first model car made under the Hot Wheels brand was the ’68 Camaro. It wasn’t the flashiest car they ever made, but it was a representation of what Mattel wanted to do with the lineup. Hot Wheels made their name using this Camaro.

Another cool car created by Mattel was the ambulance. While it is not itself a racer, it really added to the ambiance of the race. When your cars inevitably crashed, you could then pretend to rescue the driver using the toy ambulance.

The 1976 Gun Bucket was a WWII-inspired military vehicle designed to handle all types of terrain. You could play in the sandbox or on the living room carpet. The swiveling guns make it not PC for today’s kids, but us adults will still be nostalgic.

The pickup truck isn’t necessarily everyone’s idea of a “cool” car, but the 1975 Backwoods Bomb was still fun. It’s kind of a mishmash of every pickup made in the 70s, so you could imagine it was anything. The addition of the plastic camper allowed for even more imaginative play.

For Hot Wheels with two wheels instead of four, there’s the unforgettable 2001 Fright Bike. It’s been re-released in several different styles over the last decade. In all of its incarnations, it is the most popular Hot Wheels motorcycle ever produced by Mattel.

For the racers, there is the 1975 American Victory. It was modeled after a Formula One race car, so it doesn’t just look cool, it’s also fast as anything. If you wanted to win a Hot Wheels race, this was the car to get.

Hot Wheels aren’t just a nostalgic toy, they are still out there for kids today. Some of the coolest Hot Wheels cars are the ones still produced using modern techniques, but you also can’t overlook the older models.

Buying A Fisher Price Rainforest Jumper For My Niece

My sister has three kids, and her youngest is a toddler. My niece was turning two, and I needed to find a birthday present for her. Buying presents for little kids can be tricky at times, because they do not have definite interests yet. Often, the present is more for the parents than the child.

I decided to buy her some clothes instead of toys, mainly because her two older siblings are both boys. This means that my niece does not get as many hand-me-downs. I went to the mall and started looking around, and I soon saw a very cute Fisher Price Rainforest Jumper.

It had little animals on it and was just adorable. Fortunately, the store had the item in her size, so I was able to get it right away. I wrapped it up and took it over to my sister’s house for the birthday party.

My niece did not seem terribly excited by her presents, but she is still at the age where the wrapping paper is more interesting than the contents of the packages. However, she has worn the jumper a few times and she looks very cute in it.

Of course, now I will have to find a Christmas present for her as well. I do not know what else to get her. Shopping for presents is not my strong suit. I may just have to head to the mall and see if there is anything that catches my eye.

At least I know that she likes her Fisher Price Rainforest Jumper. My sister told me that it is one of her favorite items. She often wants to wear it several days in a row and gets upset whenever my sister tries to take it away to be washed.

Buying Amazon Minecraft Lego Sets For My Son’s Birthday

My son has loved Lego sets ever since he was old enough to know how to use them. He spends hours sitting in his room, building new things that he has dreamed up. However, recently, he has really gotten into playing Minecraft on the computer. You can imagine how excited he was to learn that Lego was going to make Minecraft sets!

Of course, he decided that he had to have all of these for his birthday. When he wrote his list, pretty much all it included was these sets. I knew that I needed to get a good price if I was going to get him what he wanted, so I decided to look for amazon minecraft lego sets.

I belong to Amazon Prime, which is one of the best programs around. For less than $10 a month, I can get free two-day shipping on virtually anything that I buy. This means that I can order something on Monday and get in on Wednesday. Sometimes, my packages arrive even more quickly.

In addition, I have the Amazon Rewards card that I use to pay for all of my purchases. This means that I get 3 percent cash back on everything I buy from the store. When I combine this with the amount I save on shipping, my Prime membership more than pays for itself.

Amazon also offers the lowest prices around on many of the most popular brands of toys. When I checked, I was able to get all of the amazon lego minecraft sets that my son wanted for nearly half off. This meant that I could afford the whole collection!

My son was very happy with his presents. I am glad I was able to get a great deal by doing my shopping at Amazon.
