i just got back from buying bread a bit ago, had to check the pegs, got a monster dairy delivery...few pegs over, kid and father are arguing, kid found a reg hunt, and wanted to open and play with, dad was telling him he couldn't open, and to get some other cars, which he did, so i haaad to follow them to a register with my bread, and yes, you guessed it, daddy of the year bought the hunt out from under his own kid...Think this is what Mattel envisioned in 68?

Maybe the father is a closet collector but has no clue about kids.

Your very right Liv, I would have let the kid play with it and held onto the wrapper and paid for. And if I was collecting at that time I would have found a second one if available and then bought both.

NO, no, no! Daddy bought it as an investment to put toward the kid's college fund! Why, in 15 years it will be worth $3.72!!! :eek:

Did the kid see it at the checkout? If he did'nt, maybe dad was going to suprise him with it. If the kid saw it then dad is a dope! By the way, you didn't go to get bread and happened to go to the diecast section..you went to get diecast and happened to pick up bread:tongue:

He might be saving for him for when he is older.
I'm doing that for my nephew, mostly because I wish someone had done that for me when I was little. I'd really like to have some mint examples of my childhood Hot Wheels, especially the Old No. 5! As for investment potential...

DadsCoronet was right on in that regard! With (almost) everyone preserving chase cars, their long-term worth will not increase significantly.

I would have told the kid it was a chase figure, and if he still wanted to open it, then go at it. Regular T Hunts and even Supers are worthless 6 months after they come out. The only thing that matters is if you think it is a cool car. Poor old Dad has read too many message boards and thinks he has a goldmine there. Misguided, that's all.

Well, Dad was probably the only one with cash, so he would be the one buying it. But even if Dad kept it, I'm sure junior isn't completely toy deprived at home... I wouldn't say supers are worthless six months after release, but it seems like a lot of parent/child drama over a regular.

Heck, even if the kid found a Super Secret TH, if it got him excited (and we can all relate - - - admit it guys, we're all big kids at heart!:p), it's worth 97cents all day long to see your own kid have an ear to ear grin. Period! Of course, daddy might have thought to offer his kid something in exchange if it was for him....
