Big G & Hot Wheels Super-Fan Family Prize Pack {Giveaway}

{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, Ellie!}

There are some toys from my childhood that are ones that are better off in the past. You know the ones, they're the kind that clearly existed before parents thought about choking hazards and lead paint and all that sort of stuff... not to say that they weren't fun to play with, though!

However, there are also those that have withstood the test of time and have safely made a name for themselves as a true classic. One that immediately comes to mind that my girls (and every other kid we know) love? Hot Wheels, of course!

But, wait. Not only do my kids love Hot Wheels, they love eating. Particularly breakfast and particularly every Big G cereal that has ever come through our front door. Not only do they taste good, but all Big G cereals are made with whole grains, which deliver vitamins, minerals, fiber and other nutrients. How does General Mills do it?
So is it possible to combine the two and pretty much make my kids think that their life is complete?

It is now!
Now through February 27th, specially-marked boxes of Big G cereals (Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Cookie Crisp, Lucky Charms, Cheerios and Reese's Puffs) will include one of four custom-designed Hot Wheels pullback racers! Can breakfast get any more fun than that? If your family is a fan of Hot Wheels, these will surely be a big hit!

If that isn't enough, how about a Super-Fan Family Prize Pack of Big G cereal and Hot Wheels merchandise? What is included in something like that, you ask? How about all of this...
  • 3 Hot Wheels baseball hats
  • 3 Hot Wheels t-shirts
  • 5 boxes of participating Big G cereals
  • A complete set of the limited-edition Hot Wheels pullback racers
  • A Stunt N' Dunk Hot Wheels racetrack
That adds up to a prize valued at $130! Not to mention the hours of yummy eating and fun playing that will go along with it! Thanks to the generosity of Big G, one lucky person will bring that whole package home, as...

One person will win a Super-Fan Family Prize Pack
from Big G and Hot Wheels! ARV $130!


To enter to win: Tell me why your family is a Hot Wheels Super-Fan Family. (For example, does your family create the most outstanding Hot Wheels tracks? Or has someone been a collector for years and has now gotten the whole family involved?)

My family needs to win, if only out of pity. My three children have little more than a passing introduction to Hot Wheels. I have been a negligent father. I'm sure I'll get a Hot Wheels when I go grocery shopping this week, but is that enough?

I have soon to be 6 year old twins that LOVE hotwheels!! We have about 4 tracks and I think every car we can find in the dollar bin at Walmart and grocery stores. One kid is even trying to con me into a Nintendo DS just so he can get a HotWheels game.

My family is a Hot Wheels Super-Fan Family because my sons and husband love to play with Hot Wheels. My husband even set up a nice looping track in our basement playroom, so he and our kids can race each other.
Thanks so much.

My 5 year old would love to win, because he hates sharing hotwheels with his 11-month old brother. Everytime he gets them out to play, my baby comes through and wrecks the track or the roads he has built. It would be really special for him to win a prize like this (and I'd try to make sure the baby didn't bother him as much - cause he could have some of his own!). heyjade[at]gmail[dot]com

My son loves Hot Wheels, and my brother collected them when he was little and now they play with them, old and new, together! And, I love to put a Hot Wheels car in all the little gift bags I do for the different parties at daycare, it's a little treat, that's not candy, that doesn't cost an arm and a leg!

I am not sure that we would qualify for being a Hot Wheels Super-Fan Family because even though my son has an impressive Hot Wheels collection, and my husband has even donated many of his old cars from the 70's, they are still outranked by all the Barbies in this house.

My son collected Hot Wheels then my other 2 sons started. They made jumps and tracks out of boxes, wood, other toys anyrhing they could find. We couldn't afford the tracks but thats ok because they used thier imaginations! Now my grandson is involved. Not many cars survived all the years and abuse but he has 3 new ones of his own so far.

My son is a Hot Wheels super collector! I think he owns more than a hundred of them and keeps them neatly in a box, only takes 2 or 3 to play at a time and then puts them preciously away! lol
