Hot Wheels is a new 1:64, 1:43, 1:18 and 1:50 scale die-cast toy cars introduced by American toy manufacturer Mattel in 1968. It had been the primary competitor of Matchbox before 1997, when Mattel purchased Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Many auto manufacturers have licensed Hot Wheels to make scale models of the cars, allowing the use of initial layout blueprints and detailing. Even though Hot Wheels were originally intended for children and young adults, so they have become popular with mature lovers, such as limited edition versions are now made available.
Racing track set
Along with the cars themselves, Mattel made a racing track record (sold individually). Though it could be upgraded during time, the first trail consisted of a series of brightly colored orange road segments (pieced together to make an oblong, circular race track), together with one (or occasionally two) “super hitter” (faux service stations through which cars passed onto the paths, including battery-powered spinning wheels( which would propel the cars across the paths).
During the years, Hot Wheels cars have been gathered mostly by children, but at the past 15 years[vague] there’s been a growth in the amount of adult collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million kids grew up playing with the toys, the ordinary collector has over 1,550 automobiles, and children between the ages of 5 and 15 have an average of 41 automobiles. Most consider the collecting trend began with the Treasure Hunts in 1995. Mike Strauss has been called the father of Hot Wheels collecting; he’s organized two collectors’ events each year in some sort since 1986. The first event was the yearly Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, normally held each year at the autumn. The convention occurred in a variety of locations around the country until 2001, once the very first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was placed together. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate among cities outside of California throughout the spring. Strauss has also released the Rs Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and has been one of the first to unite collectors all around the world. In addition, he writes on the Tomart’s Guide Into Hot Wheels, a publication listing history, auto descriptions and worth, which is used by almost every collector to learn more about the hobby and also their own collection. Strauss sold his set in 2011 and retired in the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
