The Hot Wheels Rocket-Bye-Baby was a 1971 release that is an original design by Bob Lovejoy. The futuristic car features a cockpit and a large jet engine on the roof.

It can be found in eight Spectraflame colors, has a blue tinted canopy, and capped redline wheels. The interior can be white, grey, or brown.

There are black intake vents on the sides and black tailpipes. When the tailpipes are pulled the vents open.

Included with the die-cast vehicle was a plastic collector’s button. It has a red Rocket-Bye-Baby on a yellow background.

The Rocket-Bye-Baby is known for “crumbling”. Crumbling is when the body or base cracks and eventually breaks into pieces. This is caused by impure metals being used in the zamac alloy.
