Smile My son is demanding alloys...

My 4.5 year old son into cars, big time. He has fallen in love completely with our new Black Car (Baleno) as he calls it. Everytime we get out of the house he demands we take the Baleno and not the Santro. Today afternoon he was holding his Mustang (hotwheels) and was staring at the Baleno. Then he realised what made his Mustang look dull. He pointed at the rim of the toy Mustang and then at the Baleno alloys and demanded he wants the same shiny wheels on the toy Mustang...

Does anyone know where I can get a quote for a set of 4mm alloy wheels?

Good find Shan2nu. However, I don't think hotwheels tyres can be replaced with after market parts.

Well in this case, I guess a new car is in order........... you could try Modelart at The Forum.... He can chose the car whose alloys he likes!

I think hot wheels are usually 1:32 - 1:24 scale.

Samurai i suggest you pick up a car from model art and take it home your self
cause taking a 4 and hlf year old to model art can give the parents shocks once the kids picks his stuff.

samurai sweet son you got there man, love the modern day kids for their imagination and demands

I agree v1p3r! It would be really cool.. baap-beta both on Team-BHP.

While in the topic of future BHPians, i had a 3 yr old cousin over at my place yesterday... now apparently his uncle had promised him to get him a Swift toy, as this guy was asking for it from the past few days. So, yesterday when his unc came over at our place.. he obviously couldn't find a scale model of the Swift as yet.... oh boy! was he in for a treatment! He wasn't allowed into the house until he promised he'd get it today.. the kid was crying out loud as if the world has come to an end! Today, god help his uncle!
