Video: Inside the Hot Wheels Toy Factory

Ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes in the creation of all those cool Hot Wheels models?

No one was the wiser before, but thanks to the fine people at Mattel’s headquarters in El Segundo, California, we’re being treated to a behind-the-scenes look at how all the concept-car shapes are made into smooth-rolling toys - in mini scale.

The kids in all of us will probably be inspired by watching a video like this, and in some ways, the same can be said for all of us who are now fully ingrained in the auto industry.

It’s always a treat to see the toys we enjoyed during our own formative years developed in the kind of way we probably never expected when we were asking our parents to buy us our own Hot Wheels back in the day.

And if for nothing else, the video will really bring us back to those days when we dreamt about running our Hot Wheels through all those race tracks. Seeing this is making me consider buying some to play with around the office!

This is a must-watch video if you’ve ever been a fan of Hot Wheels.
