CHOKING HAZARD -- Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.
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.

So, the first jam was repaired by my handy husband who designs things for a living. My kids proceeded to make a half dozen more cars when the car maker broke...again. Who knows what's wrong with it this time. My husband says he'll look at it later because the last repair sucked up an afternoon. This toy should be more durable. I don't spend $40 anticipating a toy will last an afternoon. I was also lucky enough to find wax refills, so I dumped $25 on those, plus $10 on another mold set. In total, I spent $75 on a toy that lasted a day. Not good, Mattel.
Also, Amazon won't let me return the car maker because I purchased it at the end of October from their Holiday Toy List for my kids for Christmas. What that Holiday Toy List didn't mention was that Amazon's Christmas return policy of a January 31 return deadline didn't start until November 1st. So even though I purchased the item from their Holiday Toy List that was out at the end of October and didn't give the toy to my kids until Christmas, I am unable to return it because 30 days has passed from my purchase date. Thanks, Amazon.
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.
