Sunday GIVEAWAY: RIDEMAKERZ $50 Giftcard or Car Set


RIDEMAKERZ is a fabulous out of the box option for kids who have an appreciation for cars. It basically takes the "build-a-bear" concept, but allows the child to build a car from scratch. They choose the body, the wheels, the rims, the decals, and whatever extras they want to add to their "ride".


RIDEMAKERZ offers the in store experience, an option to build your ride online, or pre-made kits that can be purchased and assembled at home. The kit comes with the tools needed and the process either way is designed to minimize frustration and delight the builder. One of the things I liked the most about RIDEMAKERZ was that you can keep the car at the price point that fits your budget. You can go for bells and whistles and add a remote controlled aspect, or you can keep it simple and go with the free wheelin' style. Another added bonus - once you have made your initial purchase, you can continue to add accessories or even other car bodies down the road for a lot less than going in and building an entirely new car (incentives for good behavior). I love that this gets kids building and constructing, and it is a great activity to do as a family.

This is one of those gifts that you cannot go wrong with. Whether you give a gift card or a kit, or take your child in for an afternoon of building, you will not be disappointed. This is definitely a toy that will stand up to a lot of play - they are built to handle a lot of action. And, don't think that this is only a toy that boys will love. My daughter was all about her sporty pink car with the heart and flower decals and metal heart grill accessories.

This week we will be giving away 4 prizes: 2 $50 gift cards that can be used in a RIDEMAKERZ store or online, and 2 kits that will allow the winner to build a ride at home.

To be entered, leave us a comment answering the following question:

  7. My dream ride would be a minivan. Yep, I'd like to have a minivan. We currently have my 97 Honda Civic & a 03 Chevy Trailblazer. Both cars are paid off, so a minivan is not in my near future. I'm even coming to terms that I may never get one . . . maybe I'll win this giveaway!!!
