It had been the main competitor of Matchbox until 1997, when Mattel bought Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Though Hot Wheels were originally meant for children and young adults, so they have become popular with mature collectors, for whom limited edition models are currently made available.
Racing track set
In addition to the cars themselves, Mattel produced a racing track record (sold individually). Although it could be updated during the years, the original track consisted of a string of brightly colored orange road segments (pieced together to form an oblong, circular race track), together with a single (or occasionally two) “super hitter” (faux service channels by which cars passed on the tracks, featuring battery-powered spinning wheels( which would propel the cars along the paths).
During the years, Hot Wheels cars are gathered mostly by children, but at the previous 15 years[vague] there’s been an increase in the amount of mature collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million kids grew up playing with all the toys, the ordinary collector has over 1,550 automobiles, and children between the ages of 5 and 15 have an average of 41 cars. Most believe the collecting craze started with this Treasure Hunts in 1995. Mike Strauss was called the father of Hot Wheels amassing; he has arranged two collectors’ occasions each year in some form since 1986. The very first event was the Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, usually held each year at the fall. The conference happened in various locations around the country until 2001, when the first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was placed together. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate one of cities out of California throughout the spring. Strauss has also published the quarterly Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and has been among the very first to combine collectors all over the world. In addition, he writes the Tomart’s Guide To Hot Wheels, a publication listing history, automobile 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 from 2011 and retired in the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
