Mattel Is Bringing Back Classic Hot Wheels From the '80s

Andrew LaSane

Children of the 1980s now have kids of their own, and with parenthood comes the inevitable desire to share youthful experiences with the next generation. Mattel can help facilitate that retro education with past generations of Hot Wheels cars returning to toy shelves. 

The collection includes the '87 Toyota Pickup, the Volkswagen SP2, the '77 Plymouth Arrow, and more. Mattel has also announced the release of the 4-Lane Elimination Race Track, the Sto & Go Playset, the Dash and Crash S Track Set, and the essential Car-Go Race Hauler, a truck that's designed to hold and transport up to 23 additional Hot Wheels cars. 

Check out a preview of the products below, and head to the Hot Wheels website to purchase. It's OK if you don't have kids—no one will judge you for snatching up these throwbacks for your personal collection.
