Hot Wheels Factory Archive



In the late 60's molding toys like Creepy Crawlers and Monster Maker were all the rage. Naturally Mattel set out to produce a toy that would let you make your own Hot Wheels cars. Their efforts led to the release of the Hot Wheels Factory in 1969. It was the first in a long series of toys that produced Hot Wheels cars. The most recent was released by Rose Art a few years ago. After more than thirty years the technology used in these toys is relatively the same. A heating element melts the wax which is then pushed into a mold.
