We remember spending hours setting up Hot Wheels tracks as kids. That tedious planning paid off when we sent a die-cast Mustang soaring over a collection of our sister’s Barbie dolls, like Evel Knievel was piloting the toy car. While we don’t break out the bin of Hot Wheels these days, we like to reminisce every now and then, and Hot Wheels, a coming release from Assouline, is just the spark we need. The book charts the history of the popular toy cars, from their inception in 1968 through the more than 10,000,000 Hot Wheels produced. With a forward from Mario Andretti, Hot Wheels tackles collectibility, production techniques, and more of what makes the cars the number-one toy in the world.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
