If you happen to take a peek at the selection in your local retailer’s aisle of toy cars, there just might be a holiday surprise hidden within the mainline Hot Wheels (the ones that are priced around $1). One sub-collection this year is the 2017 Holiday Racers – a series of five cars, four of which have been revealed. There’s Halloween (Poppa Wheelie), Christmas (16 Angels), New Year’s (Poppa Wheelie) and the one that I’m sharing since it’s Valentine’s Day: Rodger Dodger. This classic Hot Wheels ride was originally issued back in 1974 and has been done in many variations since, but for 2017 it’s presented in candy apple red with gold accents to celebrate Cupid’s favorite day.

Mattel says that Holiday Racers are “always in auto-matic holiday mode – whatever you’re celebrating!” Happy hunting!
