If you’re a car guy of any permutation, whether it’s exotics, muscle cars, 4x4s, or even just mainstream sedans, you can trace some of that love of automobilia back to those $1 Hot Wheels your dad bought for you at KMart. And you played with them for hours because they fueled your imagination for high-speed track runs and diminutive but dramatic crashes. A new book captures the magic on paper to celebrate the brand’s 50th anniversary, and it shows Hot Wheel history in-depth from design to production, and everything in between. It even showcases rare drawings and even rarer prototypes that gave birth to 1/64th scale legends. And in perhaps the most attractive and nostalgic packaging ever created, the book comes in its own replica Hot Wheels carrying case, which makes us pine for it like little kids.

Moon-Puzzle-IF2

We pride ourselves on being able to tackle problems and jigsaw puzzles like everyone else–from the edge pieces in. That’s a little more difficult when it comes to thousand piece adventures like the Moon puzzle you see here. In is out, out is in, and there’s an entire quadrant of almost fully gray pieces that depict the lunar surface, but all of that just adds to the productive difficulty you’ll experience when you’re assembling this jigsaw version of modern history. As they tell it, “July 16, 2019 marked the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch – the historic mission to the Moon where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first of humankind to set foot on the Moon. Our Moon puzzle celebrates this momentous achievement and will challenge and delight puzzle solvers everywhere.”
