Get on the right track by using our Hot Wheels Party Ideas Guide for your little speed racer's birthday. These ideas are sure to leave all other parties far behind in the dust.
Invite the masses to the track for a high-energy party. Just like a real racer, you can race to get your party information out! Send out Hot Wheels Custom Invitations to make everyone feel extra special. Add a message like: "Stay on track! Join us for Tanner's birthday party!" Just slip in some Confetti and add a Hot Wheels Sticker to the envelope and you're ready to roll!
To get your guests in motion, send out Hot Wheels Invitations with special Tattoos. You can tell each guest to wear their tattoo to the party as a secret pass that will get them into the drivers' club. Give your invites an extra kick-start by sprinkling Confetti in the envelope and adding a Hot Wheels Sticker.
If you are hand-delivering your invitations, add on a special favor that will make every guest feel like a winner. Send out your Hot Wheels Invitations with Hot Wheels Mini Medals attached with Royal Blue Curling Ribbon. These pre-party favors are sure to get the fun started even before your guests arrive.
Racecar drivers make sure to use their best manners both on and off the racetrack. Teach your little guy good manners by having him send out Hot Wheels Custom Thank You Notes with a fun message like: "Thanks for coming to my party! You're number one!" Don't forget to add a little Confetti and a Hot Wheels Sticker to the envelope.
The winner of the race always gets a special photo taken when he receives his trophy. Have your birthday boy and his guests pose for great photos, too. Add the photos into his Hot Wheels Thank You Notes with a little Confetti for some extra spark. His guests will love when they receive this memento from the raceway.
Play pinata the Hot Wheels way! Start with a Hot Wheels Pinata or a Hot Wheels Car Pinata, and fill it with cool surprises that are sure to delight your guests like Stripe Bounce Balls, Sports Whistles, speedy Hot Wheels Yo Yos, and bright Kaleidoscope Keychains. Make sure to add something sweet like Kiddie Mix Candy or Now & Laters. Use a Blindfold and keep a Pinata Bat handy. For younger racers, you can use the pull-strings that come with the pinata to play the game. Don't forget to give each boy a Hot Wheels Loot Bag to collect all their loot.
Pump up the need for speed when you play the Hot Wheels Party Game, which is a cool twist on the classic party game Pin the Tail on the Donkey. In this version, guests take turns trying to put a car on the raceway. Cover the boys' eyes with the included blindfold and watch the fun.
Give your birthday boy and his guests a chance to feel like they're getting ready to take the lead with a favor station full of great goodies. Start with a Clear Tray and fill it with popular items like Hot Wheels Yo Yos, Hot Wheels Car Poppers, Tattoos, Spiral Yo Yos, Stripe Bounce Balls and Trophies. Make sure to have some Hot Wheels Loot Bags around so that the boys can collect their supplies.
Start by lining up chairs back to back for all but one player. Station an adult by the stereo with fun music like the Boy's Birthday Party Music CD. When the music begins, the boys walk around the chairs. Let them act like they're racing cars by making "VROOM" sounds as they go. When the music stops, everyone sits; the person without a seat is out. Remove one chair each round and continue until only the winner is left.
Don't let your guests get too low on fuel! You can fuel their fun fever with great prizes! Give out treasures that they're sure to love like a Speed Zone Drag Racer, Hot Wheels Metal Box or Hot Wheels Cars. Make every boy feel like they've won first place by giving out Jumbo Trophies to all the little racers.
Here's a cute and easy way to make a winning favor set in our reusable Hot Wheels Party Cup. Line your cup with Red Crinkle Paper Shred, then fill with favors like Hot Wheels Memo Pads, Hot Wheels Yo-Yos, Compass Rings, Hot Wheels Pencils, and some sweets from the Kiddie Mix Candy. Slip your cup inside a Clear Party Bag, then tie it all up with Blue Curling Ribbon.
Racecar drivers have all kinds of interesting tools that keep their cars running. Give your party guests the tools to create some Hot Wheels fun at home with these cool favor sets!
Here's an idea to help you get to the party favor finish line even faster: pick up a Hot Wheels Favor Value Pack. It's got enough great goodies to make eight sets of favors. Just divide it up among Hot Wheels Loot Bags and you're all done!
Racecar drivers always like to be prepared for the big race – so make sure to prep your party room before all your little racers arrive. Create a party room that will make your guests feel like they are at a raceway. Start with a Hot Wheels Custom Banner wishing the birthday boy a happy day, then add Hot Wheels Streamers with Blue Swirl Decorations and Hot Wheels Dangling Cutouts. Place out Pit Crew Hats on each chair for guests. To complete this look, check out our table decorations and balloon ideas below.
Add a touch of the raceway to your table.
Your guests will appreciate the extra pow you bring to your party decorations when you use a Hot Wheels Green Racer Balloon surrounded by a couple Hot Wheels Balloons. You'll need helium, so pick up a tank at your nearest Party City store or order a Helium Tank that fills up to 50 balloons.
Real racecar drivers wear sleek jumpsuits that protect them from all the dust and heat. Your little Hot Wheels fan will love having a costume that looks like what real drivers wear. Make his racing fantasies come true with this Vert Wheeler Hot Wheels Costume from Battle Force 5.
If your birthday boy has his own outfit picked out for his party, he can still add some racing flair to his look. Give him Hot Wheels accessories like a Hot Wheels Award Ribbon, Black Gloves just like a racer would wear, Hot Wheels Glasses and a big, shiny Jumbo Award Medal.
When they see your birthday boy in his special costume, your party guests will want some speedy Hot Wheels accessories of their own. Get your party off to a flying start by handing out Hot Wheels Pit Crew Hats, Hot Wheels Glasses and Mini Medals as soon as each guest crosses the party starting line!
Your birthday cupcakes can double as decorations when you display them on a Silver Cupcake Stand. Bake his favorite cupcakes in Primary Baking Cups and frost in vanilla icing. Decorate the cupcakes with Rainbow Nonpareils, then give them a Hot Wheels flair by adding race-related words like "Pit Stop," "Faster" and "Go!" using Letter and Number Icing Decorations. Add a Hot Wheels Speed City Candle to the cupcake for the birthday boy; they also make great table decorations. Serve your treats on Hot Wheels Dessert Plates along with Beverage Napkins.
Racecar drivers compete to create the fastest and most flashy looking cars, and your little race fans will like seeing who's the best at decorating cupcakes. Bake a couple batches of the birthday boy's favorite cupcakes in Primary Baking Cups. Frost with vanilla icing so the decorations will really stand out. Now set out Small Silver Trim Bowls filled with cake decorations like Sugar Sprinkles, Rainbow Nonpareils and Star Sprinkles. Also set out some Color Mist Sprays. Give each child a Hot Wheels Dessert Plate to work on, and have lots of Hot Wheels Beverage Napkins around to clean up sticky hands.
Eating favorite fast food from the concession stand is part of the fun of a trip to the racetrack. Plus your little speed demons will want fast finger food so they don't have to take a long pit stop. Cook up a casual menu of chicken breast strips, mini corn dogs with crinkle fries. Serve your snacks on Hot Wheels Lunch Plates with Hot Wheels Lunch Napkins. Set out Ketchup & Mustard Squeeze Bottles so everyone can customize their snack any way they like!
We love playing with our food and were thinking that a banana looks an awful lot like a long racecar. Here's a great idea to make a delicious fruity treat for your Hot Wheels party. Peel a banana and slit it 1/3 of the way lengthwise. Using toothpicks or Bamboo Skewers, make axles for your banana cars and then add sliced strawberry or kiwi wheels. Add blueberry hubcaps to make sure the wheels stay on. Lay whole strawberries along the top of the banana like passengers. Serve your banana cars on a Swirl Tray. Pair them with ice cream or serve on their own on Hot Wheels Dessert Plates, along with Beverage Napkins and Red Spoons.
Racing cars is hot and dirty business. Make sure your little racers stay hydrated with some Speedway Spritzer Punch. In a Ringed Bowl, mix equal parts orange-passion fruit juice with lemon-lime soda sweetened with natural sugar. Float blueberries and wheels of lemon, lime and orange on top of your Speedway Spritzer Punch. Ladle it into Hot Wheels Cups and add a Curly Krazy Straw. Have some Hot Wheels Beverage Napkins handy to mop up any messes.
