Ah, Matchbox and Hot Wheels cars. One of the joys of having a boy (and some girls out there) is the love of these little cars. They cost less than $1 and provide hours of amusement. Just having a car clutched in each hand buys me time while running errands. They are very useful in teaching colors. Today we picked out a blue one and a white one. Good to teach the concept of two things, one for each hand. They roll well on the all those wooden train tracks that I picked up at the Thrift Shop for a steal! I love them!
Can you have to many? No. Kids love to line them up and they are always shoving them places so you need to have a lot. It is fun to build the collection over time. You can get so much mileage out of spending $2, one car for each hand.
