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!

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?

Birthday hit

By fav2uncle

from Undisclosed

Comments about Mattel 1001134 Hot Wheels Car Maker Playset:

Bought this for a nephews birthday and it has been very successful in holding the child's interest and imagination. He enjoys making cars for his younger brother and playing with the cars on HotWheels tracks. I would like to suggest to Mattel that they make chassis and molds that allow you to use the made cars with the Carcade track set action toy that you produce. They would make a great addition set to allow kids to make vehicles then use them with the Carcade. Currently the cars made won't work with Carcade. Making some vehicles that are better than others on the Carcade would teach kids how the trial and error method works too. Great lesson that you can learn from play and that learning can be fun.

                Bought this for my grandson age 6. He loves it but he could only make 3 cars because the kit only comes with 3 chassis. I have looked at all the toy stores and they do not carry them. I will not purchase any thing from this company again unless additional kits are available. this was a great disappointment.

                      My son loves making the cars. It is very easy for him and he is 7. My only complaint is that it comes with 3 chassis and you can not buy any more anywhere - not at Mattel, not in stores, and not on line. That Is very disappointing for a product that was so hard to find for Christmas and can only have 3 cars at time. I can't even find more wax or molds. Very disappointed.

                        Its very easy to handle, easy to work with although it is a little misleading. My son was lead to believe that the car would come out in 2 different colors as its pictured on the box not in Tie-dye effect for uniqueness. The car maker comes prepared to make 10 cars but it only brings 3 Chasis. Highly disappointed because the chasis are not available to buy separately either. Why not bring 10 chasis for umm lets say the 10 cars you can build. The stickers also don't stick very well, never mind that there aren't many of them. It's also better for the car to completely cool off before you take it out of the mold. That way it pratically pops out.

                          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.

                            He is three and seen at store and ads. Good job stores and tv ads.He just wanted to have it. With tracks and cars I said your too young we will get for you when your older. And turns out I got it for him and works for him yes younger then said. Just have to sit with him a bit. Just have close by it will tell you heating, ready, cooling, ready.And time it takes 12-20 not 8-10 like said might be why for older kids. only draw back stickers and need more frames not three to race side by side. Aka dad. And mom is better car maker then me.
