Product Description

Create Awesome Racecars From Scratch! Boys can make their very own vehicles in a matter of minutes! The Hot Wheels Car Maker turns a stick of wax into a fully functioning Hot Wheels car that kids can customize with decals. This innovative machine features cool lights, music, and voice prompts that lead kids through the entire car-making process - from revving up to cooling down. It's creative play for every Hot Wheels fan!

Amp Up the Design Fun! Simply heat up the unit by plugging it in and turning it on. Then select a mold and wax color for your vehicle. The set comes with two molds and 10 Protoshotz wax sticks in a variety of sleek and sporty colors. Insert the mold into the machine and add your favorite wax color. In eight minutes, the Car Maker melts the wax into the mold and cools off - and you have a custom Hot Wheels vehicle body!

Detail Your Unique Vehicle! Attach the molded vehicle body to one of the three included chassis. Then get really detailed! Decorate the car with cool decals from the sticker pack. Go for speedy flames or stylish graphics ? or both! Now your brand-new car is ready for racing action. For additional vehicle and design options, check out the Car Maker Mold Packs and Car Design Refill Packs (each sold separately).

Simple, Safe, and Fun! The Car Maker is easy to use and 'talks? young car-designers through each phase of the process. Kids receive voice prompts about when to insert the materials, press the button, and pull down the handle. They're instructed to remove the mold only after the wax has safely cooled. Plus, the machine's music and flashing lights during car building add to the interactive excitement!

Features

  • Choose a mold and colored wax stick for your vehicle and in about eight minutes, the Car Maker melts the wax into the car mold and cools off
  • Voice prompts will guide kids through the process, while music and flashing lights add to the fun
  • Attach molded vehicle body to one of the three included chassis
  • Decorate the car with decals in the sticker pack and race it on track (not included)
  • Lots of creative, imaginative play for your Hot Wheels fan!

Got this for our 6yr old son for Christmas and he is having so much fun making his car. They come out looking REAL & so shiny & they feel just like a Hot Wheels. Nothing cheap looking about them. Within minutes, you have a new car. If I had to report one bad thing about this, it would be the voice of the machine is loud. There is no volume control on it but that is definitely not a deal breaker. If you want to give a child something fun and they like Hot Wheels, this would be a GREAT gift!

The product worked as expected, my son was actually pleased that it didn't seem to take as long as the instructions said it would (7 1/2 years old). My disappointment is that it doesn't make 10 cars as the box claims. I'm sure that it can make 10 car tops, HOWEVER it only comes with three chassis. A car would mean to me, the entire created product. A little misleading and for the price, I think that 10 cars could be included, five at the least.

      Comments about Mattel 1001134 Hot Wheels Car Maker Playset:

      not sure what happened with our model but it's been nothing but trouble since we got it. The model sticks won't go into the right spot once inserted, they have broke in their and there is no way of getting them back out amongst other troubles in that area. If the nearest toys r us wasn't 1 1/2-2 hours away I would have returned it immediately. I also wrote the company today, we'll see what they have to say about it? Maybe we just got a defective one?

        This product works exactly as described. Even my girls wanted to make a car. There are plenty of refill options available and my son was thrilled to receive additional molds and wax sticks. I was satisfied with the number of bodies with the cars as they can only play with a few at a time anyway. My only complaint is that some were difficult to remove from the molds.

        Comments about Mattel 1001134 Hot Wheels Car Maker Playset:

        My son got one of these for Christmas... it is very cool. You insert the "ProtoSticks" (they're not what I would call wax... they're more like a rubbery plastic), plug it in, insert the mold, shut the door & hold the button... and then the voice of the machine walks you through the rest, making sound effects and light effects along the way. It's a little slow (8 min to heat & inject, 10 min to cool), but my kids still found it fun because the wait is worth it... the final product that comes out is awesome. The 10yr old sister was fascinated and joined in too... it's almost like a science experiment. Mattel has gotta convince the big stores to carry the supplies though... my kids burned through all the included supplies in 1 day. They loved it and they want more supplies to make more cars... but I can't find any in town (!!). Ya gotta fix that, Mattel!

              This toy is so cool. My son just turned 4, and is riveted by the noises it makes - it talks, plays ambient music, and makes industrial sounds, too. The suspense while the cars are being made is awesome, and he sits at stares at the machine the whole time. We have made a truck and a car so far. I'm disappointed we didn't order extra molds, since everyone has jacked up the prices for Christmas, but we still have plenty of wax left. My son loves this toy, and I found it much more entertaining than expected!

                The car maker works pretty well. The voice activated steps are helpful. However, the number of chassis should equal the number of wax sticks included. You can make multiple cars but can't drive/play with all of them at the same time.

                Comments about Mattel 1001134 Hot Wheels Car Maker Playset:

                We plugged it in on Christmas morning and it worked perfectly.
                The cars are cool, just like 'real' hotwheels and actually work even better than regular hotwheels on hotwheels tracks.
                Stickers are easy to apply and so far don't fall off.
                There are enough supplies to make 10 cars BUT there are only 3 chassis/wheels so in reality you can only make 3 cars. I have a call in to ToysRus to see how to get more but so far no-one can tell me.
