GoPro video on a Hot Wheels car is amazing


When was the last time you played with a toy that was designed for someone far younger than you? 

Don't worry, we're not about to put you on some sort of watch list - we're familiar with the magnetic pull that a shop isle of small toy cars, Scalextrics sets and LEGO has on mature men, that urge to build, to race and to break. 

It's an urge clearly shared by the creators of 5MadMovieMakers, YouTubers who delight in taking kid's toy kits, building them to ridiculous levels and filming it all for others to delight in.

Take this Hot Wheels road trip: over two minutes of joyous travels through seven separate locations - with glorious slow motion sequences. 

If you need us, we'll be digging out the Meccano set.
