GO, Mark Martin!

To watch my sons in action
  is surely to amaze
Your heart with all the passion
they put into daily play.

A happier child cannot be found
than these two with their toy cars.
And imagination has no bounds
when racing around in the backyard.

The sound effects are just the beginning
  of their storyline~
When they tire of pretending,
they put their cars in a line

and admire the vast collection
(a hundred seventy-four at last count!).
These boys show much affection
  for the cars that Hotwheels puts out.

These tiny cars are in the chairs,
  the beds and the tank for fish.
I find them underneath the stairs
and even in our dog’s dish.

They’re everywhere they shouldn’t be
and in our home run loose...
I’d swear if it didn’t sound crazy,
these hotwheels reproduce!

Many parents, though, can relate,
  even some with small daughters.
These race car toys create
  amusement that last for hours.

Overall, I must say
  (although sometimes I wonder!),
Hotwheels cars are here to stay,
  ‘cause they’re what my kids do want for.

I only wish I had the chance
to turn back the hands on the clock
and take advantage of circumstance
and buy up all the Hotwheels stock!

~January...

This was just the cutest poem! I don't have children yet of my own..but I have two sister and lots of boy cousins. So I know all too well what you mean in this poem, about them being everywhere. I was a bit of a tomboy myself growing up and i loved "boy" toys   Great job!

I can really relate to this!!! Now that they are grown and have real cars, they still call 'em Hotwheels. Sometimes I really long for the days when they could park their cars in the backyard LOL. Very cute poem and thanks for the memories.

They do reproduce.  Your boys have the hot wheel grandchildren of the ones my boys had many years ago.  They haven't changed a bit.  Thanks for the memory.

ROFLAMO.....my son is only 21 months old, and is already in love with Hot Wheels!!!  He owns about 15 of them, and we can't ever leave the house without one clutched tightly in his hand!  Thanks for the poem...now I know what I have to look forward to!
