Hot Wheels is a brand of 1:64, 1:43, 1:18 and 1:50 scale wracking toy automobiles introduced by American toy manufacturer Mattel in 1968. It was the main competitor of Matchbox until 1997, when Mattel bought Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Although Hot Wheels were initially meant for children and young adults, so they’ve become popular with mature collectors, such as limited edition versions are currently made available.
Racing track Collection
Along with the cars themselves, Mattel produced a racing track record (sold individually). Though it could be upgraded throughout the years, the first track consisted of a string of brightly colored orange road sections (pieced together to make an oblong( circular race track), using one (or occasionally two) “super hitter” (faux service stations through which cars passed on the paths, featuring battery-powered spinning wheels( which would propel the cars along the paths).
Through the years, Hot Wheels cars have been gathered mostly by kids, but at the previous 15 years[vague] there has been a growth in the amount of adult collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million children grew up playing with the toys, the normal collector has over 1,550 automobiles, and children 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 collecting; he has organized two collectors’ occasions each year in some form since 1986. The very first event was the Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, normally held every year in the autumn. The convention occurred in various locations around the country before 2001, when the 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 among cities outside of California during the spring. Strauss has also released the Rs Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and has been among the very first to unite collectors all over the world. In addition, he writes the Tomart’s Guide Into Hot Wheels, a publication listing history, automobile descriptions and worth, which can be used by nearly every collector to find out more about the hobby and also their own collection. Strauss sold his collection from 2011 and retired from the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
