Our Xtreme Customz by Ridemakerz Party

I was selected to host an Xtreme Customz by Ridemakerz Party through MommyParties!  And let me tell you, C was so excited.  I got pretty into it as well.  I even created a fun pinterest board - you can check it out here.

I used a black tablecloth and created lines to symbolize a road on the table.  We had cheese dipsticks, spare tires (mini chocolate donuts), traffic light brownies, off road dirt (chocolate pudding), fruit wheel (strawberries, bananas and oranges), and race dogs (hot dogs made into racers)!

The boys picked out their cars and got right to work in building them and playing!

 A pretty awesome display of Xtreme Customz!

 Building Fun

Xtreme Customz come in two sizes - the size of a cell phone and the size of a football.  These cars are the 1:48 scale or cell phone size.  The car parts are interchangeable and they have a 4-mode adjustable chassis so you can customize the way you cruise (race, lifted, jacked and off-road - with just the push of a button).  The boys had a lot of fun putting the cars into the different modes and this is a huge selling point for me.  These cars were fun, engaging and overall cool.  I liked the different designs and the fact that the parts interchange.  I would definitely recommend them.  They are available for purchase at Target and Toys R Us. 

There was also the opportunity to create Xtreme Scenez.  Using some art supplies, boxes and a lot of imagination the boys built a mountain scenery and a garage - I was impressed.

And below is a fun video of the festivities and my interviews with some of the boys - what they like about their cars and what they would add if anything.

Disclosure:  Thanks so much to MommyParties and RideMakerz for allowing us this opportunity and providing us with the amazing Xtreme Customz starter kits.  All opinions express are 100% my own.
