2013 Award
Mattel Hot Wheels Car Maker
( Mattel $49.99 Score: )

Every Hot Wheels fan has probably dreamed of designing original cars and now they can! Works like some of the crayon makers we have reviewed in the past, this is an innovative toy that comes with 2 molds, 3 chassis, and 10 colored wax sticks for making 10 hot wheels. Kids can combine colors of the wax and add decals for unique results. The melting process happens when the wax is loaded and the door locks shut until it cools. In the interim there are sound effects that can be a bit annoying, but you must keep listening so that you know when to lower the handle that injects the wax into the mold. The finished product has a hard glossy finish and fits well on the wheeled base chassis. There are a variety of refill and accessory kits with wax rods, chassis, and molds ($12 each kit) for this winning toy making machine. Marked for 8 & up this is plugged into the wall and needs adult supervision. We think even 8 and 9 year olds will need adult help with the first vehicles they make. 8 & up.
