It had been the main competitor of Matchbox until 1997, when Mattel bought Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Although Hot Wheels were originally intended for children and young adults, so they’ve become popular with mature collectors, such as limited edition models are now made accessible.
Racing track Collection
Besides the cars themselves, Mattel produced a racing track record (sold separately). Although it could be upgraded throughout the years, the original trail consisted of a string of brightly colored orange road segments (pieced together to form an oblong, circular race track), with a single (or occasionally two) “super chargers” (artificial service stations through which cars passed on the tracks, featuring battery-powered spinning wheels, which would propel the cars across the tracks).
Through the years, Hot Wheels cars have been gathered mostly by kids, but in the past 15 years[vague] there has been a growth in the number of adult collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million kids 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 a mean of 41 cars. Most believe the collecting craze started with the Treasure Hunts at 1995. Mike Strauss has been known as the father of Hot Wheels amassing; he’s organized two collectors’ events each year in some sort since 1986. The very first event was the yearly Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, normally held every year in the autumn. The convention happened in various locations around the country until 2001, once the very first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was assembled together. Ever since then, the Conventions are held each year in southern California. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate one of cities outside of California throughout the spring. Strauss has also published the quarterly Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and has been one of the very first to combine collectors all around the world. He also writes the Tomart’s Guide To Hot Wheels, a publication listing history, car descriptions and worth, which is used by nearly every collector to find out more about the hobby and their collection. Strauss sold his set from 2011 and retired in the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
