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.

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??

        Horrible product! Did not work as directed. Actually contacted the manufacturer to get a refund and or replacement. We followed the directions and tried multiple times to make it work. Unsuccessful. Don't waste your time or money. Broke our little guys heart when it didn't work.

              Comments about Mattel 1001134 Hot Wheels Car Maker:

              My 7-year old son was so excited to use some of his birthday money to buy this car maker. He had so much fun choosing which color wax to use and doing the set-up; he didn't even mind the several-minutes-long wait it takes for it to heat up and actually create the car mold, as it has some fun sound effects. Unfortunately, the machine only made two cars before it started getting clogged and overflowing inside, which meant the wax sticks can no longer be pushed down far enough to create any more full cars. Only partially made ones come out now, so basically the toy is useless, as we cannot take it apart to fix it. My son absolutely loves the two cars he did make with it, but I would not recommend that anyone buy this item.

              Makes great cars when works

              Comments about Mattel 1001134 Hot Wheels Car Maker:

              Bought this for my son. He was really excited that he will be able to create his own car. It works great when it works but most of the time the bottom mold does not go in. I had to unscrew the whole thing to get it working once .. it made a very nice car but than I put the screws back and now it's not let me slide the mold again. I can see there is a hinderance right in the middle but I can't push it in so the mold box can get it. I might need to unscrew the whole thing again and may be it will work ... Not sure if it's a fault in our toy only ...

                    Comments about Mattel 1001134 Hot Wheels Car Maker:

                    This is a pretty good toy. My son really likes it. The only complaint I have is that way too many wax sticks end up puddled on top of the mold rather than injected inside. You have to make sure you get that handle pulled down immediately when the wax is ready, and you have to pull it down pretty hard and fast.

                    Luckily, I discovered that you can get more wax sticks at a very reasonable price from the Mattel website. (you have to go to the Mattel parts website and order them there.) The colors you get as "parts" are extremely limited, pretty much the same colors that come with the toy, so no metallics or "fun" colors.

                    It kind of irritates me that fun color replacement sticks are nearly impossible to find for a decent price. This toy has been out long enough for Mattel to figure that out, in my opinion.

                    It's a really fun toy, though, and my 8 year-old loves it. The sounds coming from the machine are pretty irritating if you play with it for a long period of time (making a few cars) but it tells my son exactly what to do and when. It's a pretty well thought-out toy.

                    We enjoyed playing with the car maker until we ran out of wax sticks. I can only find them on line and they are charging ridiculous amounts for the products. My son is disappointed because he wants to keep playing with it. We haven't used it in months.
