Mattel Hot Wheels HW Glow Racers Duck N' Roll Die-Cast Metal VehicleIf you were ever a child in America, odds are you owned a couple of Hot Wheels cars at some point or another. The collecting world is intense, but also thoroughly goofy. I sometimes wander over to the car toy aisle just to see what's there, and the Duck N' Roll made me laugh - so I bought it. The casting has been around for years, usually in yellow or green, with two glow-in-the-dark versions so far. This was the first glow one, notable for its racing goggles on the head.

You know how these cars work - they roll nicely and look cool. This daffy idea riffs on another American toy classic, the rubber duckie, which has mutated into a collectible format of its own in recent years. Mattel has produced dozens of glowing cars over the years, some of which have chrome parts, some have clear parts, and some only have one or two small glowing elements. This one is almost entirely glow plastic.

There's not much to it, but it shows you what the line is all about. Mattel puts its R&D into keeping these toys cheap and fun, which sometimes means more plastic and less metal, or less paint, or in 2024 some cars with no moving parts at all - not even wheels. This ducker has rolling wheels and is cast in mostly glow plastic, with a little yellow for the tailpipes, and a metal base painted in a matching yellow.

It's a simple design, and as fans of glowing toys know you're not going to see a ton of detail. The duck is already quite smooth without any feathers or other sculpted elements, which works just fine because this kind of plastic absorbs a lot of detail.

Do you need this? No - but if you stumble on it cheap at a collectible toy shop, I'd treat yourself to one. It isn't particularly cheap on eBay so it might cost you a few bucks - or you can just get the new one when it shows up. It would have been utterly amazing to see a floating version, but I don't think there have been a lot of cars that are designed for aquatic environments yet.
