10/28/2018 — I was walking through my local Safeway store here in Phoenix when my daughter shouts, “Hey Dad, its an Elsa Hot Wheels car!” … I turn around and she has the Elsa #Character Car in-hand already, as she had spotted a whole display of Disney Character Cars. I had walked right past it. I had not expected to see these at retail as I had not seen anyone else find these yet — let alone at my local Safeway store which constantly carries old stock.
My 4-year-old daughter was enamored with Elsa, Mickey Mouse, Maleficent and Mike Wazowski whereas I had gravitated towards Jack Skellington and the Winnie the Pooh “honey [cement] mixer”. Priced at $4.99, I had to exercise a little restraint, and with my daughter — who thinks we can buy anything we want from the store — it was the perfect lesson for her. We each picked out one car: she picked Elsa (no surprise) and I ended up grabbing Jack Skellington to feature this week … with it being Halloween and all.
It sounds like Hot Wheels has plans to release a whole bunch of Disney #Character Cars in 2019 … and with this series just starting, its the perfect time to collect. Which ones will you be grabbing?
