Introducing a potential husband to a girls father is no small feat, as many of you will know. There’s a lot of tension, expectations, and of course, there’s intent. I was especially nervous because my father, a biker, car extraordinaire, and a particularly difficult man has never been short of the wrong thing to say. Their first meeting didn’t go completely as planned. A love for cars, however, albeit differences of opinions about favourites and which are the best, bridged the gap, the generational gap between them. It even laid the foundation, for a beautiful relationship.
Last month Hot Wheels turned 50! Half a decade of bridging generational gaps, building bonds, and creating memories to last a lifetime. There is something nostalgically unique about a little boy playing with a toy car that his father played with, especially when it’s a toy car that his father’s own father played with. It’s one of the many reasons Hot Wheels is so special. Irrespective of your preferences Hot Wheels has over 130 new car designs released each year. Rest assured! They have you covered.
I’ve been with my husband for over 6 years. And when my father and husband get together, moving to our garage or his is an inevitable part of their conversation. Hot Wheels has created for them, something special which they can now share with our son, Daniel. In celebration of their 50th-anniversary, Hot Wheels sent us a hamper, sparking a new kind of excitement in our home.
Items that speak to the new Hot Wheels City which is being introduced this year. A system of play, compatible with others, that allow children between 3 and 6 to build a Hot Wheels world. Ladies, I can feel that I will be losing parts of my home to this very soon.
Also included, to my father’s delight specific 50th-anniversary products including a Black & Gold Themed Assortment, Zamac Themed Assortment, a Premium Collector Favourites Assortment and a special 5 pack – with distinctive 50th-anniversary branding on all 2018 products in the track set range! Hot Wheels has sponsored one lucky reader with this very hamper to ignite the passion in your home!
