Our daughter LOVES playing with Barbies. Watching her interact and make up conversations with them is priceless.

My son Joseph is almost 4 years old. He loves his hot wheels and can spend hours lining them up, making parking lots, building towers for them, etc. and he always brings one (or two or three) everywhere we go. He would be extremely excited to win a prize like this.

Hands down, Hot Wheels are the toy of choice in our house. The play opportunities are endless; we tend to build a new ramp, track or garage each week. And I'm not sure we have yet to leave a large store (Walmart, Superstore, etc) without buying a new one for the collection.

My sons favorite Mattel toy is the Laugh N Learn chair (not sure exactly what it is called), he is so proud of himself when he can sit down and turn the pages of the book all by himself. My 4 year old daughter actually still plays with it as well and I love watching them share it together

Hot Wheels! All 3 of my kids still play with them (at 9, 6 and 2). They use them inside, outside and in the bath. An added bonus is that they fit so easily in a pocket or a purse so that I always have a distraction item for my toddler!

My son has the Mid-Air Madness Hot Wheels wall track. It's awesome. I even play with it. I didn't know Fisher Price was under Mattel but my kids also have the laugh n learn kitchen which was worth every penny of the $40 it cost. Both of my kids spend hours with that thing opening and closing the fridge door and tidying up the 'garbage'.

Our little girl loves anything that goes and loves to 'zoom' the hot wheels all over the house. She would love to win this!

My daughter loves all her fisher price toys too many to name favorites but she enjoys the laugh and learn kitchen.

Hotwheels are our essential toy - baths, restaurants, playgrounds, they go everywhere. Even dearer to Mommy's heart though, is one of his favorite activities is "putting them to bed" in our hot wheels travel case - too cute plus he's willingly cleaning up!

My 4 year old son loves his Hot Wheels cars and the rolling carrying case that holds them. He pulls up the carrying handle to wheel it around and calls himself a tow truck when he does. His favorite thing to do with them is reenact scenes from the movie Cars or from an episode of Mighty Machines.

My son loves all thing Hot Wheels! He always has to sleep with at least 2 of his cars. We'll be checking out these events for sure, thanks for sharing!

Oh, and my daughter is begging for an American Girl doll for her birthday. Just tonight she promised to make her bed every single day if she could please please please get one for her birthday.

Our little girl loves the Cars movies so all the cars figurines are a hit at our house. She has them zipping around the house and plays with them on her train tracks.

My son and my husband share a love of Hot Wheels. My husband has his in the package still while my son takes his EVERYWHERE, even to bed with him. We recently got a rug with roads on it and that is his new favourite game. "i want to drive trucks with Daddy on the carpet"!

Our son, who is not quite 3, loves Hot Wheels. He can go through his collection and tell you the make of the car, who bought it for him and when he got it (birthday, shopping etc). It is even to the point that when he is "racing" with someone, he will check all the cars and only let them race with the "non-Hot Wheels", that way he is sure to win! Pretty intense!

My first son Keenan started playing with the hot wheels cars when he was 2 years old. We bought him tracks when h turned 3 and he still plays with them- he is 7 now! Now he has a little brother who is 2 and now they play with the hot wheels together! It keeps them busy and they have fun playing together!

Both of my sons adore Hot Wheels. I think between them they have over 40 cars and they would love a track to race them on!

I have boy/ girl twins so barbies and hot wheels are big in our house.

My youngest son loves Hot Wheels! He actually goes to sleep with one in each hand every night. No stuffed animals for this kid!

My son is 4yrs old and has just graduated from Thomas the train to HOT WHEELS! He would LOVE to have some new hot wheels tracks/cars so he and daddy can play together (Daddy likes hot wheels too) lol It is their special thing to do together :)

Our son received a Hot Wheels bathtub track from the "sucky fairy" when he gave up his sucky and a wall track last Christmas! He loves them both and can't wait for grocery shopping day when he can pick out a new car for the tracks! My daughter has caught on pretty quickly as well and likes to pick out a car for herself too! I think we have the biggest collection of purple cars!
