Christmas 2017: Toy Ideas for Boys

By  | 

One of my favorite things as a mama is watching my boy’s imaginations come alive while they play. Listening to them dream up stories filled with characters makes my heart so happy. They are so clever and creative, it always amazes me. I love providing them with ways to use their imaginations. Thanks to Mirum for partnering to help provide this fun!

Christmas 2017: Toy Ideas for Boys

There is something about boys and Hot Wheels that go hand in hand. I learned at a very early age with my boys that they had been bitten by the car bug and could happily spend hours racing their Hot Wheels around. They quickly developed favorite cars that they often had with them.

When I saw the new Hot Wheels Super Ultimate Garage (exclusive to Walmart) and Hot Wheels Ballistik Racer Vehicle, I knew they were in for hours of fun!

Hot Wheels Ultimate Garage Review

The Hot Wheels Super Ultimate Garage is biggest Hot Wheels playset ever — it’s the ultimate destination for hours of fun! My boys were thrilled at how many cars they can park in it — over 140 to be precise.

They were captivated by the motorized elevator as well, which can transport 23 cars at a time. There was much debate about which cars to use at a time. The jet plane can transport two cars for landing at far away, exotic destinations. 😉

Additional features include a car wash, tune-up shop, drive up diner, freight elevator and even a police station. I also appreciate that it can be connected to other Hot Wheels sets so my boys can get even more creative with their play.

My boys loved checking out all the cars included in the Hot Wheels 20 and 50 Car Gift Packs. They both immediately chose favorites.

They also really loved Hot Wheels Ballistik Racer Vehicle: it’s a super-fast, remote control, dual sided vehicle. It was perfect for taking outside for all sorts of fun! It’s packed with off-road capabilities and all-terrain performance plus Ballistik Mode to unlock next-level speed and crazy stunt abilities like the 180° Spin.

There are button combinations on the controller that activate special stunts like the Instant Pivot Turn. My boys had a blast creating stunts to try.

I loved that the controller was easy for their hands to hold. It fully charges in only 30 minutes, so my boys had tons of play time without having to wait for it to be ready for more.

I’ve loved playing with the boys as well. Their excitement is contagious. I covet the memories that we’re creating together. I know we’re all looking forward to many more hours of fun together with Hot Wheels!
