Summer is indeed upon us and if you are one of those mums who are driven to their wit’s end with a constant blubber of “Mum, I’m bored!” or “Mum am tired of staying at home!” or just simply looking for something awesome for your little ones to do during their vacation, then you must check out the Hot Wheels Epic Race!

Hot Wheels Epic Race had its Central Qualifying event at SM Megamall on 9-10 April, and its South Qualifying event at SM BF Paranaque last weekend. Its last and North Qualifying event will be held at SM San Lazaro on 23-24 April and promises to be one awesome event for boys who seem to be all car-crazy {oh well, even big boys are, come to think of it!}. Too bad we’ve missed out on the 2 previous events but I sure hope we can catch the last event this weekend or hopefully, the Semi Finals taking place on 14 May in SM Mall of Asia.

The event was centered on the brand’s purpose of exhilaration and achievement for every kid. Here boys aged 3-10 years who possess a daring, imaginative, driven, and competitive attitude can get a chance to race their favorite Hot Wheels cars at the gravity-driven track set. The fastest 20 from each of the qualifying sites will advance to the semi finals.

To qualify for the Hot Wheels Epic Race all you have to do is:

  • Purchase at least 2 Hot Wheels Basic Cars from the participating store
  • You get a maximum of 2 trials per car and the fastest speed will be recorded
  • Top 20 fastest speed record will be shortlisted to join the Area Qualifying Rounds

Another feature that I am sure all Hot Wheels fans will love is the chance to view a living diorama with improved tracks, connectors, launchers, and stunt kits from the all-new Track Builder Unlimited. Kids will get loads of ideas here on how they can transform their own rooms into a How Wheels Epic race track! This sure is a great way to make your summer epic, right?

Hot Wheels also sent us a Speedtropolis Track Set and the little one was so excited to build it with his dad before I even took pictures of it! He’s even asked me to get him another Hot Wheels car so his new buddy will not be lonely. We shall be sharing about it next on Jared’s Little Corner.

I got a couple of vouchers from Lazada.com.ph which I used to order a couple of stuff for me and the little man just recently. Jared’s 4th birthday is fast approaching so I decided to get him this Cars 2 double decker transporter bus which he wanted to have for quite some time now. I also ordered a couple of Thomas the Train books for my boy, as well as a book and a jeggings for myself.

the little man very happy with this very advanced birthday gift! 🙂

I am a first time Lazada shopper and for the pleasurable experience, I think it will be my go-to place whenever I need to do some online shopping. What I love about it? The site is so easy-peasy to use that even children can buy from them. True to their word, they offer 2-day delivery to places like ours which is quite near but is out of bounds from Manila. The items are neatly packed and placed in pouches, or in boxes in case of fragile items like cosmetics and tin lunch boxes. And what’s even better is they even offer free shipping on almost all items. Shopping with Lazada not only make shopping convenient and stress-free for us mums, it also allows us to have good value for our hard-earned money with various discount and appealing offers.

Just recently Lazada tied up with another industry giant, Megalink,  check out the rest of the press release here:
