Like most kids, my boys are so fascinated with playing cars. I have actually dedicated a big tub of toys that are just cars, planes, boats or trains. So you can imagine how excited they were when I brought them to a new destination store called Ridemakerz in Schaumburg, IL @ Woodfield Mall.

The store is smartly designed where you can first start by picking the car’s body and will then move on to customizing it with lights, sounds, engine, decals, and finally the car certificate of title complete with your child’s name and info. Along the way, the kids get to actually work on building their own cars with the help of a very kid-friendly staff.

Maxine Clark the founder of Build-A-Bear collaborated with entrepreneur and Ridemakerz CEO Larry Andreini in up-starting this Build-A-Car company. Both of these great minds seem to have the magic touch as Reuters reported that  RIDEMAKERZ(R) Wins ”Retail Store of the Year”

According to their website, Ridemakerz mission is:

“Kidz of all ages love cars of all kindz. Cars represent freedom, self-expression and most of all, FUN. In garages, automotive workshops and customizing studios from Pasadena to Daytona, America’s love affair with the automobile continues, as car enthusiasts and gearheads do what we’ve done for decades – take one of the greatest machines ever invented and make it even greater. We soup it up, trick it out and in the process transform a utilitarian necessity into a thing of beauty, a work of art, a real RIDE. This uniquely American art form, this passion for expressing our individuality in chrome and paint, this universal love of cars, is the fuel that drives all of us full-throttle to a destination called FUN!”

The boys left happy and smiled all the way home, and now you too can win one for your kiddo! Please follow the entry form directions to win a $75.00 gift certificate redeemable at any Ridemakerz or on their online store Ridemakerz.com.  

Contest ends on December 18, just in time to receive your Christmas present for yourself or someone else.
