Boys can build, customize, and race their own Hot Wheels cars from scratch! In a matter of minutes, this car-making machine transforms a colored wax stick into a molded vehicle, which you can decorate with stickers and attach to a chassis!

Features

  • Choose a mold and colored wax stick for your vehicle
  • 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!

 

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! 

What’s in the Box?

Car Maker comes with two molds, 10 Protoshotz wax sticks, three chassis, and sticker sheets.

We used this at our son's 6th birthday party. Each attendee was able to pick out what type of Hot Wheels car model and color they liked, and my husband made them to order! Then they used them for races! The kids loved to pick their own style, though not so patient while the mold is 'baking' so we had to have another activity to keep them busy for a few minutes. The molds don't 'stick' too well to the chasis since they are designed to be interchangeable, which was a problem when we were using them for races, but probably not a problem if they aren't manhandled so much.

Ok. I Started Using It. Someone Decided To Work With It When I Walked Away. I Came Back While They Were Reading The Directions They Did It Right. The First Peice Of Wax Got Jammed. Then Its Like ERROR ERROR Then COOLING THE ERROR. Some Of The Wax Was Not Included In The NEW Package And Very Anoying Too. NOT Recomended Beacause Why Not Buy A Bunch Cars From The Pegs Unstead Of Cars That Dont Work On The Track. Im Going To Return This And Get Something Else For My Brother.
WARNING! DO NOT BUY! I Was Thinking 2 Star But I Have To Put 1.

Awesome Toy... Until You Need Refills :(

By Kim

from Dallas, TX

Comments about Mattel 1001134 Hot Wheels Car Maker:

My son received this for Christmas, it was a huge hit... until he used up all his wax and now it is just sitting in his closet. The cheapest wax refills I could find were around $20 for 4... the same refills previously sold for $4... If replacements were still available at a reasonable price, this would definitely be at least 4 out of 5 stars.

Can't get the supplies to make more cars. Found some on a web site and they want $50.00 for refill product. Why is nothing available. Grandson would like to use this Christmas gift. He was sweet and gave cars to his friends. Now he has no wheels and I can't buy him more!! What's up with this??

      Comments about Mattel 1001134 Hot Wheels Car Maker:

      The door to this toy broke within a month and the toy is now unusable. No replacement part available from hot wheels - had to throw it out. Unfortunately most hot wheels toys are very cheaply made these days and this is a repeat experience with hot wheels. Will not be buying any more for my boys.

        It works well if you use it correctly. Read the directions and be patient. It is more about having fun making the cars than actually using the cars for racing, etc.

          My grandson said getting the HW Car Maker was the best day of his life!! Since he loves Hot Wheels and is only 5 years old, with adult supervision he can make and decorate cars to his heart's content. The Maker seems well constructed and works according to directions. He loves it!

              This product works easily, does what it's supposed to, operates safely, and makes awesome cars that look like they come from the store! My kids made 3 yesterday. Dad helped with with the first, and thereafter they did it on their own. The machine speaks to you, giving you directions as the process goes along. The kids were thrilled! Also important: while it gets hot enough INSIDE to melt and mold the wax, it remains cool on the outside, and the cars are cool when they are done, too!

                    My 6yr old twin sons got this as a gift for Christmas and we love it. I was surprised at how nice the cars come out. We had some issues with getting it going (the instructions are not written well at all which is why I gave it only 4 stars) but once we figured it out it was great. The first time we did it we got an "error" message at the end. I checked online and it said to unplug it, plug it back in, and let it go through the cooling process again - which worked perfectly. The entire process (even without the error we had) takes a little time... its about 5 minutes to "heat up" then about 8 minutes to "cool down" so some patience is required but its totally worth the wait. The cars really do look amazing when they're done. I would definitely recommend this toy.

                      Works as it should. Cars come out very nice. It would be nice if they included at least 1 more chassis and a few more sticker sheets. Reminds me of the days of creepy crawlers...
