When my oldest son was just a toddler, he fell in love with Hot Wheels cars. In fact, his very first group birthday party was a Hot Wheels party and as soon as he learned how to talk, he used to tell people that he was going to be a race car driver when he grew up. Now that he’s older, he’s outgrown his obsession a bit, but he still loves his Hot Wheels! So he was pretty excited when Hot Wheels Canada recently gave us the chance to take part in the Hot Wheels Track Builder Challenge.
I initially planned to let Zackary and his friends build a massive Hot Wheels track at his birthday party but unfortunately the tracks didn’t arrive in time, so instead we used some of our leftover party goodies, set out some new snacks and had a track-building challenge with my boys and their cousins a week later. The Hot Wheels Track Builder 5-Lane Tower Starter Set was by far the highlight of the track that the children put together. Being able to launch five different cars at once had Benjamin playing with this track for over an hour even once the rest of the kids were done building!
