Father’s Day is just around the corner and it’s always been difficult for me to find just the right gift for both Mr. Money Saving Parent and my dad. When I learned about the Kiddie Car Classics from Hallmark I just knew that I had to get one for my dad, and that it would be the perfect Father’s Day gift, or really any special occasion gift.
As I was growing up my dad would fix cars up. After my brother and I moved out it became an even more involved hobby as he and my “Uncle” would buy old cars and then spend months rebuilding them to make them look new again. I remember for years the first one he had he drove it proudly the GTO was only used on special days, like a car meet or when there was absolutely no chance of rain. But if the sun was out the top was down, my mom would worry about her hair and he would hit the road.
Seeing the new line memorabilia and ornaments available at Hallmark I just KNEW it would make a perfect Father’s Day gift. 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. And, just in case your collector really loves their history you can also get them a corresponding Kiddie Car Classic Keepsake Ornament!
The Kiddie Car Classic I got my dad was the 1958 Chevrolet Corvette Toy Car. There’s some history behind that selection, as he worked for a manufacturing company which made parts for General Motors. Also, he’s always had a weakness for convertibles! While the car is sturdy and maneuverable enough for even a child to play with, I think this one is going to go on the shelf with his other collectors items which include selections of his favorite things, for example, a “Paschal” the lizard from the movie “Tangled” and his singing and dancing University of Tennessee mascot. I think for Christmas I so should get him the matching ornament – or maybe another car and that ornament. There are plenty to choose from!
