The Best Hot Wheels Cars For Kids (and Their Adult Minders)
Whether your kid's a Hot Wheels novice or a seasoned collector, there's a great car (or pack of cars) for them on this list.
Hot Wheels cars were inducted into the Toy Hall of Fame in 2011, a testament not just to their longevity but to how much kids, even those bombarded with screens everywhere they go, seem to love the miniature cars. Chances are you played with them when you were young, and that your kid also loves (or will love) playing with Hot Wheels today.
But getting some new wheels for your son or daughter can be tricky, as a lot of them seem to differ only aesthetically. We looked through what’s on the market now and found a solid variety of options. From branded models to exotic luxury cars to an impressively huge bulk pack, these are the best Hot Wheels to buy for kids. Or, honestly, for yourselves.
DC fans will love this five-pack of cars, each inspired by a different legendary character. Batman, Wonder Woman, Superman, the Flash, and Green Lantern come to life in these cars, with art on the box and the vehicles by Alex Ross, a beloved illustrator who's worked on both Marvel and DC titles.
Save this one for kids who simply can't get enough Hot Wheels. The 50 cars in this set come individually packaged, so you can stock up and have gifts on hand just in case you need them. The designs themselves are random and diverse, with both classic and new models in every pack.
The big, red Spider-Man-themed car is actually an easy-to-use launcher for smaller cars. It has eyes behind its windshield that narrow when its spoiler is depressed, firing the included white web car (or most Hot Wheels car) from behind the grill forward with speed.
