Of course my boys are Hot Wheels fans, and have been for quite sometime. So when I got the chance to check out the new customized line of Hot Wheels I was really interested to learn more about them.
For $7.99 you can now customize your own personal Hot Wheels car. I probably should have used this opportunity to get another special little boy in my life a cute Christmas gift since I had a hard time deciding which of my boys would love a custom car more. I finally decided my youngest son would probably be the one that would appreciate this car the most but to eliminate the "that isn't fair" factor, I have put this car away as a gift from Santa. That way Mom can't get in trouble.
So you want to know more about customizing? First head over to http://customs.hotwheelsshop.com from there you will click on the customize tab. Your first step is to pick the car or truck of your choice to customize. For the extra special touch you can upload a photo to be placed on the vehicle - I choose a photo of my son. Your next step is to add your custom text and then you even get to choose the packaging of your choice - Holiday packaging, birthday and standard customized for you. I choose the Holiday themed package. A perfect stocking stuffer!
The whole process was really simple. As long as you have an idea what photo you want to use, and what message you want to put on the vehicle you will be done creating in minutes. Please allow some extra shipping time since this is a customized item and is made per order.
This is definitely that special item I will keep in mind for a "cool" birthday or holiday gift. What little Hot Wheels fan wouldn't love a customized Hot Wheels Car? In fact they have a bus you can customize as well, I thought it would be cute to get one customized for the bus driver this Christmas. Hey, I know it's not something he will get two of that's for sure!
