Don't settle for pre-made Hot Wheels cars. Make some of your own with the Hot Wheels Fusion Factory. Using the set's Fusion Fluid (which is really like a liquid silicone), mixers, and molds, kids can mold up to four car bodies. There are molds for a sports car and a baja truck, and two colors of the Fusion Fluid, red and blue, and each one makes two car bodies. Once molded, place the body on top of one of the four chassis and then add window and spoiler accessories. Then add your newly created vehicle to your Hot Wheels car collection.
You attach a Fusion Fluid cartridge to the mold you want to use, and insert the mold into the Fusion Factory unit. Twist the timer and slowly pump the lever on the front until you see the Fusion Fluid in the reservoir at the top of the mold. The timer will click off in about 10 minutes. When that happens, push down the handle to release the car mold, remove the car mold, and then detach the Fusion Fluid cartridge. Use the extraction tool to help separate the two mold halves and pull out the car body. Once you remove excess material, attach the car body to the chassis using the location pins.
The front of the Fusion Factory unit has space for storing your car molds, and the vehicles you make can race on or off your Hot Wheels track, sold separately.
The included instruction booklet also has information about the science behind how Fusion Factory works. It talks about matter moving from liquid state to solid state, kind of like how the Fusion Fluid goes from being a liquid to being a solid thanks to the pressure of pumping the Fusion Factory lever. It also gives kids an at-home science experiment to conduct so that they can see how temperature turns water into ice.
It took us 15 minutes to make one car body, and the instructions were easy to follow.
If any drips occur from the Fusion Fluid cartridge, quickly wipe them up with a cloth or paper towel.
Each cartridge makes two car bodies. Hot Wheels Fusion Factory refill sets are available and sold separately for even more car body-making.
