I am pretty sure even if you did not have a brother, you had a Matchbox car in your home growing up. I can guarantee if you have a son, you have plenty of those die cast cars laying around, maybe hidden to be found years later. The Matchbox company has been around for 60 years entertaining kids of all ages. From the simplest car to most complicated race tracks, the Matchbox Brand is truly iconic.
To celebrate their 60th anniversary they are hosting a Matchbox Heroes Wanted Sweepstakes.
What is the MatchBox Heroes Sweepstakes?
The Matchbox® Heroes Wanted™ Sweepstakes calls on parents to celebrate the heroic attributes of their children by submitting a picture and caption of their hero-in-training dressed as their favorite real-life icon. Submissions will be showcased on the Matchbox® Heroes Wanted™ Facebook gallery and are automatically entered to win the grand prize – a $60,000 college scholarship. Parents with children between three and 10 years old can enter the contest now through May 13, 2013. Sixty prize pack giveaways will be awarded weekly consisting of a Matchbox® branded gift box, a personalized photo-frame thank you card and four heroic Matchbox® vehicles.

I love a sweepstakes that celebrates children but also everyday heroes. While superheroes are great, a real life hero is what our child should be looking up to.
Don’t wait for the last week to enter, on top of the scholarship prize, there will also be weekly giveaways and winners. We have all played with these great toys and now it is time to recognize their success as well as your luck in winning one of these great prizes. My son could not decide which hero he wanted to dress up like.
What HERO will your child be dressed as for this contest?? Do you have a favorite Matchbox car from your childhood?
