Disclosure: I have received free Netflix streaming and a streaming device as part of my membership on the Netflix Stream Team. All opinions and views expressed in this post are my own.
We are still enjoying the conveniences of Netflix streaming – the boys have access to endless, high-quality family-friendly programming and movies, and the Hubs and I are enjoying the not-quite-family-friendly shows that we like to watch. (Breaking Bad, anyone?)
Last week we received a surprise package in the mail from our friends at Netflix which contained a special car featured in the Team Hot WheelsTM episode now available for streaming. I doubt the folks at Netflix knew at the time, but we have 2 Hot Wheels super fans in the house. These boys are obsessive in their care for their car collection – they organize them, race them, name them, research them…a lot of time is spent with these toys.
Now, thanks to Netflix streaming, the boys can watch their favorite cars in action at home and on the go. The 22-minute episode of Team Hot WheelsTM follows 4 adventurous kids as they work together with an engineer to create 4 speedy, spectacular cars that they will use to beat the mystery cars.
We like that this new episode has characters that the boys can relate to, with all of the speed, action, and 4-wheeled eye candy which you would expect from the Hot WheelsTM brand.
Word on the street says a 74-minute movie version of Team Hot WheelsTM will be released this fall. We’ll be having a family movie night when it becomes available!
