Buying Hot Wheels for my son got me interested in them. I started collecting Volkswagen models since I've always been a fan of the Beetle. More often than not, I get anything that strikes my fancy. Me and my husband tear through the pegs tag-team style: he hits the upper ones and I go for the lower ones. :)
Besides Hot Wheels I'll buy any others that catch my eye regardless of brand. I have some Matchbox, Greenlight, Jada, Johnny Lightning and Maisto, too.
