Father's Day Giveaway and Review: Hallmark Kiddie Car Classics

Disclaimer: I received a Hallmark Kiddie Car Classics, as well as one for a giveaway prize, in exchange for my honest review of the product. All opinions expressed in this blog post are my own.

I smiled so brightly when Hallmark asked me if I would like to participate in their Father's Day Giveaway and Review for one of their newest offerings: Kiddie Car Classics. My late maternal grandfather, Grandpa A.D.'s side of the family has long been a "car" family and I was brought up to have an appreciation for classic cars. 

Hallmark sent me their Kiddie Car Classics blue 1965 Ford Mustang to review. Each Kiddie Car Classic comes with a special collector’s card that provides fun facts about the original car as well as the Hallmark artist who created the model. 



This particular make and model of classic is close to my heart. The young man who was my first date came to be my lifelong friend. One of my favorite memories was going to his Senior Prom when I was a sophomore, which was a big thing because junior and seniors could go to prom and only a sophomore could go by invitation from a junior or senior. He picked me up for the prom driving his Dad's 1966 red Ford Mustang with license plate that read, "ITSA66". Very special memories with Scott, who passed away recently very unexpectedly. I smiled when I received this 1965 blue Ford Mustang.



Hallmark first introduced Kiddie Car Classics in the early 1990s, Now two decades later, these collectible scale replica pedal cars have cruised back into Hallmark stores. Hallmark Keepsake Ornament collectors will also find these newest releases in the 2015 Keepsake Ornaments Collection.  

I love the size of these scale replica pedal cars, big enough to enjoy and display as an eye-catching conversation piece. I think the blue Mustang is such an attention-getting color.    

Thanks to Hallmark, one of you will win a Kiddie Car Classic, valued at $49.95. To enter, leave a comment below letting me know if you have a favorite classic car from your memories, whether from childhood or recent. If you are not able to leave a comment, please e-mail me your entry at angelaskitchen@rocketmail.com with "giveaway entry" in the subject line. Giveaway closes at 9:00 pm EST tonight.

  1. My favorite memories are from my folks' station wagon. Of course I was too young to know the make and model, but that car took us to drive-in movies, up to Grandma's, on camping and fishing trips, to the neighbors, and even across country. Those trips were when it was "okay" for kids to sit in the back section. Lots of fun memories!

  3. I really don't have a favorite car buy my husband and I love looking at them at car shows. His good friend has one similar to the one shown.
