I have 3 boys, and I have noticed since they were a few months old my boys have always went straight for vehicles. We would be at the Mommy and Me group, with toys strewn about, and they would crawl past all the toys to get straight to the cars. I giggle pretty hard the one day when my youngest headed straight for the newest car (he was army crawling at 4 months), and it was a baby safe NASCAR toy car. It had a 24 on it, but at least it was a NASCAR. They did play with the kitchen, and they nearly ran over the other kids running with the doll strollers, but they always defaulted to the cars.
We have every shape, and size of Hot Wheels we can get our hands on. My middle son asked for a big present of cars for Christmas, that's all he wanted. Cars, cars, and yes, more cars.
So when I was told that KINDER had teamed up with Hot Wheels and Barbie to put toys in their KINDER Surprise eggs, I was very excited. I am a #KINDERMom and I knew my boys would be thrilled about the Hot Wheels Toys.
When they came in, I brought the Barbie ones to my Dental Hygienist (yes I live life on the edge), because she has 2 little girls, and I knew they would be thrilled with the Barbie toys! As their Mom has assured me, the box of goodies was a huge hit!
As for the Hot Wheels my boys love them! The Hot Wheels toys are quite well made, and I was very impressed. They snap together super easy, and are in 2 or 3 pieces. About the only thing I would change is that there is only 1 in 3 chance of getting a Hot Wheels toy. We don't mind too much since we have a whole case of them, but I know my boys keep expecting to get a Hot Wheels toy each time. The first few times they were upset when they didn't get them, but now they are much more excited when they get them (since each one has one now).
