Search Tips

Quotation Marks—Enclosing a multiword phrase in quotation marks tells the search engine to list only sites that contain those words in that exact order.

The following must appear in ALL CAPS and with a space on each side.

AND—Indicates that the records found must contain all the words joined by the AND operator. For example, to find objects that contain the words wizard, oz, and movie, enter wizard AND oz AND movie.

OR—Records found must contain at least one of the words joined by OR. For example, to find objects that contain the word dog or the word puppy, enter dog OR puppy.

AND NOT—Indicates that the records found cannot contain the word that follows the term AND NOT. For example, to find objects that contain the word pets but not the word dogs, enter pets AND NOT dogs.

This is the fastest car in the world. It's only 3 inches long. It's a Hot Wheels Sizzlers with a rea


Hot Wheels Sizzlers, introduced in 1970, took standard die-cast toy cars one step further. Each Sizzler model held its own tiny electric motor and rechargeable battery. A recharge at the "Juice Machine" or "Goose Pump" enabled another five frenetic minutes of 200 mile-per-hour (to scale) fun. Mattel's Sizzlers line, though successful, eventually lost its edge and the firm discontinued production. The 90-second recharge time, for a Sizzlers car, is often called "the longest minute and a half in a kid's life."
