Ridemakerz is the perfect way to bond with your gearhead kids.

You’re a hot rodder, so Build-A-Bear just won’t cut it. Ridemakerz is the cay guy’s answer to bonding fun with the kids.

Who would’ve thought that making cute, fuzzy bears with your kids at the mall would prove such a success? Kids love it—or at least the moms and their daughters love it. But what if you’re a gearhead, and your kids are destined for gearhead life? Stuffed bears just don’t hold the same allure. That’s where Ridemakerz comes in. Now located in 12 retail shops across the country, Ridemakers allows good father-son and father-daughter bonding by providing an unparalleled model car building experience. At Ridemakerz, customers choose from many different 1/14-th scale cars, and choose painting and equipment options. Customized graphics up the ante further. Currently, there are 649 million combinations with body styles from GM, Ford, Dodge, and many others (ok, imports).

Ridemakerz even has an interactive website ( that allows parents and kids to build virtual cars, and play various games with them. Now if I had only known about this when my daughter was seven years old. I wouldn’t have been bored out of my mind at the bear-building store!
