Hot Wheels & Disney Have a Magical New Collection of Pop Culture Rides...

Written by

Mattel's Hot Wheels Pop Culture Assortment is an ever-changing collection of vehicles that feature artwork inspired by many fandoms and interests. Unlike the Character Cars, which take design cues for body styles from actual characters, these are traditional, yet highly-detailed vehicles that are emblazoned with colorful art - think along the lines of those custom 70s vans that used their panels as a canvas. For the latest series, it's all about the Wonderful World of Disney, specifically some classic animated films from Walt Disney Animation Studios. The Jungle Book, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Fantasia, 101 Dalmatians and Peter Pan are all being paid tribute with the latest assortment. Check 'em out below!

The Jungle Book Snow White

Peter Pan

Fantasia 101dalmations

These should be hitting most major retailers for around $4.99. Each vehicle features matching packaging, "Real Riders" rubber tires and is recommended for the collector - but older kids will no doubt love these, too. There are reports that they've been hitting some Walmart stores already, so keep an eye out!
