Create Awesome Racecars From Scratch
Kids 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. 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!
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). 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.

Also, the tool to "trim" the wax is very dull- for safety sure. But it's rather ineffective in its purpose. The poker part, to push the wax out of the mold, is also fairly ineffective.
I do still give it a four star review though- there are ways around those minor issues, and accepting that it's going to be annoyingly noisy (even to my son) while spending large swathes of time doing nothing visually interesting - it's still cool to have these mixed color cars he made himself.
Our 6 year old LOVES this thing and it is a neat toy. However, after about 5 minutes, you're ready to throw it across the room because of the repetitive (and I might add obnoxious) 'music'. If the sound wasn't necessary to walk the kiddo through when to pull the handle, etc., I would be tempted to figure out how to cut the wires to the speaker.
Also, there really needs to be a way to reclaim the excess and unused 'wax'. There is a LOT of waste generated with each car and with the cost of replacements, there really should be a way to recycle the material rather than throw it away. It would even be nice to melt down 'finished' cars so that the material can be used again. Especially when a car breaks as your trying to remove it from the mold. Additionally, the tool provided to help remove the wax should either be metal or at the very least a LOT stronger than the cheap plastic it's made of. Ours bent out of shape after the first couple of times using it.
The ONLY reason this gets 3 stars is because the kiddo really does love it.
