Hot Wheels is a new 1:64, 1:43, 1:18 and 1:50 scale wracking toy automobiles introduced by American toy manufacturer Mattel in 1968. It had been the main competitor of Matchbox before 1997, when Mattel purchased Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Many automobile manufacturers have licensed Hot Wheels to make scale models of the cars, permitting the use of first design patterns and detailing. Although Hot Wheels were originally intended for kids and young adults, so they’ve become popular with mature collectors, such as limited edition versions are currently made available.
Racing track set
Along with the cars themselves, Mattel produced a racing track record (sold separately). Though it could be updated throughout the years, the first trail consisted of a string of brightly colored orange road sections (pieced together to form an oblong, circular race track), using a single (or occasionally two) “super hitter” (artificial service channels through which cars passed onto the tracks, including battery-powered spinning wheels( which could propel the cars across the tracks).
During the years, Hot Wheels cars have been collected mostly by children, but at the last 15 years[vague] there’s been an increase in the amount of mature collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million children grew up playing with all the toys, the average collector has over 1,550 automobiles, and kids between the ages of 5 and 15 have an average of 41 cars. Most believe the collecting craze began with the Treasure Hunts in 1995. Mike Strauss has been called the father of Hot Wheels amassing; he’s arranged two collectors’ events each year in some sort since 1986. The very first event was the Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, generally held every year in the autumn. The convention occurred in a variety of locations around the country until 2001, when the first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was placed together. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate among cities outside of California through the spring. Strauss has also published the quarterly Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and has been among the very first to unite collectors all around the world. In addition, he writes on the Tomart’s Guide Into Hot Wheels, a book listing history, auto descriptions and worth, which can be used by almost every collector to learn more about the hobby and also their collection. Strauss sold his group in 2011 and retired in the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
