Describe the brief from the client
For more than 40 years, Hot Wheels products have been a children's favourite. Although extremely fun, tracks don´t have the immediacy and portability of playing as cars do.

Describe the challenges and key objectives
How to invite kids to play with Hot Wheels cars and tracks whenever, wherever?

Describe how you arrived at the final design
We found that the best way to achieve the objectives was not a campaign, but a product.

We designed an economic and simple product: an adhesive tape that transforms any place into a Hot Wheels track.

Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
We generated a unique brand experience with the target market, by creating a product that can transform every single place into a Hot Wheels track.

It was such a success in terms of awareness, and consumer response, that Mattel decided to add the promotional gift to the Hot Wheels´ product portfolio.

The case still in course, so the main results can not be shared yet. We are looking forward to publish the Track Tape complete results at the 2012 Effectiveness Lions.
