It had been the key competitor of Matchbox until 1997, when Mattel bought Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Though Hot Wheels were initially intended for kids and young adults, they’ve become popular with mature lovers, such as limited edition versions are currently made available.
Racing track Collection
In addition to the cars themselves, Mattel produced a racing track record (sold separately). Even though it could be updated during the years, the original track consisted of a set of brightly colored orange street sections (pieced together to form an oblong( circular race track), together with one (or two) “super walkers” (artificial service stations by which cars passed on the tracks, featuring battery-powered spinning wheels, which would propel the cars across the paths).
Through time, Hot Wheels cars have been collected mostly by children, but in the last 15 years[vague] there has been a growth in the amount of mature collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million kids grew up playing with all the toys, the typical collector has over 1,550 cars, 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 in 1995. Mike Strauss has been known as the father of Hot Wheels amassing; he’s organized two collectors’ events annually in some sort since 1986. The first event was the yearly Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, usually held each year at the autumn. The convention happened in a variety of locations around the country until 2001, once the first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was assembled together. Since then, the Conventions are held every year in southern California. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate among cities outside of California during the spring. Strauss has also published the quarterly Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and has been one of the first to unite collectors all around the world. In addition, he writes the Tomart’s Guide To Hot Wheels, a book listing history, auto descriptions and values, which can be used by virtually every collector to learn more about the hobby and also their collection. Strauss sold his collection in 2011 and retired in the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
