2002 hot wheels collectors edition – Hot Wheels Mini Cooper,hot Wheels Collectors Tampos,2002
It was the primary competitor of Matchbox before 1997, when Mattel purchased Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Although Hot Wheels were originally intended for children and young adults, so they have become popular with mature collectors, for whom limited edition versions are now made available.
Racing track set
Along with the cars themselves, Mattel produced a racing track record (sold individually). Even though it would be updated during time, the original track consisted of a set of brightly colored orange street segments (pieced together to form an oblong( circular race track), together with a single (or occasionally two) “super walkers” (faux service channels by which cars passed onto the paths, including battery-powered spinning wheels( which would propel the cars across the paths).
Through the years, Hot Wheels cars are collected mostly by children, but at the past 15 years[vague] there’s been a rise in the amount of adult collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million kids grew up playing with the toys, the normal collector has over 1,550 automobiles, and children between the ages of 5 and 15 have an average of 41 cars. Most believe the collecting craze started with the Treasure Hunts at 1995. Mike Strauss was called the father of Hot Wheels amassing; he’s arranged two collectors’ events annually in some sort since 1986. The very first event was the yearly Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, usually held every year in the autumn. The conference happened in various locations around the country until 2001, when the very first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was set together. Since then, the Conventions are held every year in southern California. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate one of cities out of California during the spring. Strauss has also released the Rs Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and has been among the first to combine collectors all around the world. In addition, he writes on the Tomart’s Guide Into Hot Wheels, a publication listing history, automobile descriptions and values, which is used by nearly every collector to learn more about the hobby along with their own collection. Strauss sold his set from 2011 and retired in the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
