11/17/13: Kmart Fab 15 Toy List Hot Wheels Car Maker and Holiday Barbie Giveaway

CONTEST CLOSED:  CONGRATULATIONS TO HEATHER D. FOR WINNING THE CAR MAKER AND TO HEATHER P. FOR WINNING THE HOLIDAY BARBIE
Sometimes I see people wandering around aimlessly in the Toy Aisle trying to find gifts for kids.  Many times I have people ask me what to get a child of a certain age group.  I love that Kmart helps people out by providing the Kmart Fab 15 list of toys for this holiday season.  I was lucky enough to receive two items from the Kmart Fab 15 - the Holiday Barbie with Auburn Hair exclusively found at Kmart, and the Hot Wheels Car Maker.  I not only get to review them but I get to give both away.  One each for two lucky readers!  Read on to find out how to win.
The Kmart Fab 15 ultimate list of hot holiday toys includes:  Playskool Sesame Street Big Hugs Elmo by Hasbro®, Disney Doc McStuffins Get Better Check-Up Center by Just Play, LEGO® Eglor’s Twin Bike, Flutterbye Fairy by Spin Master™, Furby Boom by Hasbro®, Holiday Auburn Barbie™ 2013 Doll by Mattel® (Kmart exclusive), Hot Wheels® Car Maker by Mattel®, Lalaloopsy™ Loopy Hair Doll by MGA Entertainment, LeapFrog LeapPad™ Ultra, Monster High® 13 Wishes™ Party Doll by Mattel®, Disney Planes Pilot Pals™ Dusty Crophopper Remote Control Plane by Mattel®, NERF® Rebelle Heartbreaker Bow, Fisher-Price® Imaginext Rescue City Center, Disney Sofia the First Transforming Dress and Trunk by Jakks Pacific® (Kmart exclusive), Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles® Shellraiser by Playmates Toys, Inc. 
First I will start with the Barbie Collector 2013 Holiday Barbie who dons a snow-themed gown as the silver anniversary doll in the series.  Every time Lauren saw the commercial on TV she would say how beautiful the Holiday Barbie was and how much she wanted one.  She was beyond excited when it showed up.
 Lauren was excited as this was the first doll she had seen that had her nails painted.  She really is beautiful all the way to the details of her earrings.  This one with Auburn Hair is unique to Kmart.  She retails for $39.99.
 Here she is as packaged.  She is the first option of what you can win if you enter the Giveaway below.
The Kmart Digital Toy Catalog is full of deals.  You can find the catalog here.  This year Kmart partnered with Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry® campaign to allow members and gift-givers the opportunity to donate Fab 15 toys to children in need at www.shopyourway.com/giftregistry.
Next up is the Mattel Hot Wheels Car Maker.
The Car Maker talks to you to step you through the process of how to make the car which is super cool.  It keeps reminding you what cycle it is in by telling you "Heating" or "Cooling" and tells you when to continue.
Here is what it looks like.  It plugs in to the wall and is fairly easy to use but a bit time consuming.  As it is heating and cooling the cycles are about 5-7 minutes.
It comes with enough wax sticks to make 10 cars/trucks however it only comes with 3 bases so you really can only have 3 fully functional vehicles at any time.
Here is some video of the Car Maker in action.
Here was our first creation, a truck.
Here is the mold for the car.
There is a little tool they give you to be able to pry it out of the mold.  It wasn't too bad to get it out with this tool.
Plus you are given stickers to put on your vehicle.
Here is the finished truck.
And the finished car.  Evan though they were really cool and loved that he could create his own car.
Here is the Hot Wheels Car Maker as packaged.  It retails for $49.99.
Kmart also offers Free Layaway In-Store, Online and Mobile from now until Nov. 23rd.  Getting ahead on holiday shopping ensures that parents will be able to get the toys their kids want most.  In addition, members can earn at least 10 dollars back in Shop Your Way points on layaway purchases made between Sept. 22 and Nov. 27 when completing a layaway contract.
ENTER BELOW TO WIN EITHER THE HOLIDAY BARBIE OR HOT WHEELS CAR MAKER - YOU CHOOSE, THERE WILL BE ONE WINNER FOR EACH!
Disclosure:  I was provided the Holiday Barbie and Hot Wheels Car Maker for review purposes.  No other compensation was received and all opinions are my own.
