Every child will receive a Hot Wheels which they can keep and race on our homemade racing ramp. Due to small parts Hot Wheels are meant for children ages three and up. Hence, only children in the proper age range will receive and race a Hot Wheels. Younger children can attend the event and participate in the stories but they will not receive a Hot Wheels.
