A GREAT Concept – Ridemakerz! Giveaway to follow…
I have recently learned of a new and very cool build-a-car concept! This company has turned the love of autos into an enjoyable car customizing experience where children of all ages have the opportunity to trick out their chosen ride.
I have 5 boys ages 10 and under. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that we have Hot Wheels cars littering our home. They are everywhere all the time, under my feet, in the cracks of the couch, and cluttering our van. Along with Legos, little cars are the favorite toy here. Even my 18 month old carries a little vehicle around with him often.
So, when I was introduced to RIDEMAKERZ I immediately thought of my boys and how much they would love this idea. A car that you get to put together yourself, incorporating the Hot Wheels and Lego ideas into one constructing project is a marvelous idea. All my boys were happily entertained by the online experience, even Sam(18mo) stared at the website, pointing and shouting things in his native baby language as we perused what RIDEMAKERZ had to offer and learned what they were all about.
It was my oldest, however, who surprised me. Kait is almost 14 and is totally female. But, although she is my only girl she is the first one to crawl under the Jeep and help her dad fix something. She is also my only child who has shown any real interest in shop tools and building with wood. I shouldn’t have been surprised when she took over my position at the mouse scrolling through all the different cars and options available at RIDEMAKERZ. The kids thought the entire idea was ingenious – like Build-A-Bear, only better with more focus on fun for everybody. All ages can enjoy RIDEMAKERZ.
No doubt I was completely thrilled when RIDEMAKERZ offered my family the gift of a free RIDEMAKERZ experience. This generous company sent us a packet of information complete with a pamphlet and total rundown of what the company is about along with a gift card that allowed us plenty of customization options. Off to the computer we went again, and this time we enjoyed filling our cart with a plethora of choices.
The RIDEMAKERZ website was super easy to navigate. The home page was inviting, fun, and very attractive to the child’s curiosity as well as the adult’s eye. I loved that it was safe, completely family friendly, and unique enough to hold any kid’s attention through the selection process.
Choosing custom parts was simple and fun with plenty of options available, but not so many that we felt overwhelmed. It didn’t take my kids all day to make their choices, though they did spend a little extra time playing around on the site just for fun.
Also available to the RIDEMAKERZ customer is a club, tons of educational car info, and party packages.
Now, for the fun part – RIDEMAKERZ gave me enough gift card dough to not only provide my own family with a RIDEMAKERZ experience, but also enough to purchase a basic model for one of our readers to enjoy! Once our package arrives and we put our own ride together I will be listing a giveaway of one RIDEMAKERZ car here on the blog – and just in time for Christmas!
Not only that but the RIDEMAKERZ company has also offered my readers $10 off any $30 purchase – good through January 4th, 2009. Just use the code 93465 during checkout to get a great discount on a perfect holiday gift!
Make sure to check back for our full RIDEMAKERZ review and giveaway. I can’t be too specific as to the day it will start but I am expecting to hold it for a full week beginning no later than December 1st – assuming our package arrives by then.
