hot wheels cars toys – CAR TOYS HOT WHEELS Car Toys
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 until 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 original layout blueprints and detailing. Even though Hot Wheels were initially intended for children and young adults, so they have become popular with adult collectors, for whom limited edition versions are currently made accessible.
Racing track Collection
Along with the cars themselves, Mattel produced a racing track set (sold individually). Though it could be updated throughout time, the initial track consisted of a collection of brightly colored orange road segments (pieced together to make an oblong, circular race track), using one (or sometimes two) “super walkers” (faux service stations by which cars passed onto the tracks, including battery-powered spinning wheels, which could propel the cars across the paths).
Through time, Hot Wheels cars have been collected mostly by children, but at the past 15 years[vague] there has been an increase in the amount of mature collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million kids grew up playing with the toys, the normal collector has over 1,550 cars, and kids between the ages of 5 and 15 have an average of 41 cars. Most consider the collecting trend began with the Treasure Hunts at 1995. Mike Strauss has been known as the father of Hot Wheels amassing; he has organized two collectors’ occasions each year in some sort 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, 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 through the spring. Strauss has also released the Rs Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and has been among the very first to combine collectors all over the world. He also writes the Tomart’s Guide Into Hot Wheels, a book listing history, automobile descriptions and values, which can be used by almost every collector to find out more about the hobby and their own collection. Strauss sold his group in 2011 and retired in the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
