I have 3 sons so we have over a thousand hotwheel & match box cars, so I have bought every car case there is and this one is the Best!! It's very durable my kids stand on it, throw it and open & close it a zillion of time (we've had one of the case now for 3 yrs) and still in one piece and still closes tight. Compare to other car case I have bought that have fallen apart within days of abuse from my 3 boys. I like this case so much I bought 3 more and won't buy any other. It keeps the cars orgainized and off the floor.

The Hot Wheels carrying case makes putting toys away more appealing. Kids may find themselves sorting their collection by type of vehicle, color, or favorite status as they place them in the case. Seperate compartments within the case keep cars from scratching one another, and each vehicle is visible once arranged inside. Plus the case has a handle so the collection can be carried to a friend's house or on a trip. All of this teaches the rewards that come with keeping one's collection neat.

While this toy is not designed to be fun it is extremely functional. My 2 1/2 year old can open and close it on his own. He loves to load his cars into it and carry it around the house. It's also a great place to put the cars when trying to get them up off the floor. It doesn't take up much space so it's easy to take with us on a trip.

This is not a good way to store Hot Wheels. A lot don't fit in the slots, and the ones that do fall out when you open it. Bummer.

What they fail to tell you is that the "styles vary" means that some cases only have 12 slots. So you have to put 4 cars in one slot and let them scratch each other up. When they say 48 car case - I EXPECT 48 slots so the cars don't get messed up. Returning product and very disappointed.

I got my son his first case at age 2 and it survived the terrible 2s. Now at almost age 9 with 2, still, intact cases and a history of 2 other brands (no longer with us)... will purchase more of the Hot Wheel case to replace the overflowing shoe boxes he is now using to store his cars.

I thought this case would be a great storage solution for the many cars that are crammed into a clear storage box with no organization. My son loves pulling his "suitcase" around the house, but seldom does it contain cars. One simple reason: it doesn't work. The partion that should hold the cars in place is a flimsy piece of cardboard that can be removed and almost always falls out on its own. Without the partition in place the cars don't stay in the molded compartments. We still use the clear container for car storage.

This is a great car case. I gave it a 5 STAR in the educational value because it helps teach my 5 1/2 year old to become more organized...it's not hard for him to lift and even though it holds 48 it could hold more if you put 2 thin cars together in 1 slot. We are looking into a bigger case though, but I do give kudos to this design

My four year old received this as a gift over a year ago and it still looks brand new. It has been dropped and stepped on and still has not broke. He loves to sort his cars by color, type, size or whatever category he happens to invent. This is our standard birthday gift and all of the little boys that have received it, love it. What parent wouldn't be thrilled to finally contain the dozens of little cars that are all over the house?

I originally bought a couple of these to store A/FX 1/64 scale slot cars a couple of years ago. Those HAD 48 slots. Then I went back to get more and they had 1 of the big compartments and held only 44 cars (Did not like). Now they have 3 large compartments and hold only 36 cars (Sticker on case misleadingly still says holds 48).

I could also see how a small child could latch it incorrectly and have all his cars come racing out onto the floor due to the fact that the cars are stored end first in the compartments and easily roll out.

I've found a better choice is the Plano Molding Co #5315 case. (It's sold as Creative Options Thread Organizer here on Amazon). It WILL actually hold 48 cars SIDEWAYS so they don't just roll out. Two of the compartments are double length (44 are standard sized) and are useful to store longer dragster cars (The rear wing on Auto World Dragsters are too tall though to fit). It's transparent so you can see what cars are stored inside if your looking for a particular car. And, it's 2-sided with a lid on each side so if you should happen to dump cars, only half of them would fall out.

Before you get one of these Hot Wheels cases, check it out.

I kept the older style 48 car Hot Wheels cases and threw the rest in the trash where they belong.
