hot wheels collectors case – Mattel Hot Wheels 24 Car Collector’s Case 1980 No. 8227
Hot Wheels is a new 1:64, 1:43, 1:18 and 1:50 scale die-cast toy automobiles introduced by American toy maker Mattel in 1968. It had been the primary 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, they have become popular with mature lovers, such as limited edition versions are currently made accessible.
Racing track set
Along with the cars themselves, Mattel made a racing track set (sold separately). Even though it could be upgraded throughout the years, the first trail consisted of a series of brightly colored orange street sections (pieced together to form an oblong( circular race track), using one (or occasionally two) “super walkers” (artificial service channels by which cars passed onto the tracks, including battery-powered spinning wheels, which would propel the cars across the tracks).
During the years, Hot Wheels cars have been gathered mostly by kids, but at the past 15 years[vague] there’s been a growth in the number of adult collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million kids grew up playing with the toys, the typical collector has over 1,550 cars, and children between the ages of 5 and 15 have a mean of 41 cars. Most believe the collecting trend began with the Treasure Hunts at 1995. Mike Strauss has been known as the father of Hot Wheels amassing; he has arranged two collectors’ occasions annually in some sort since 1986. The first event was the yearly Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, usually held every year at the autumn. The conference occurred in a variety of locations around the nation until 2001, when the first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was placed together. 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 was one of the very first to unite collectors all over the world. He also writes on the Tomart’s Guide Into Hot Wheels, a book listing history, auto descriptions and worth, which is used by nearly every collector to find out more about the hobby and also their own collection. Strauss sold his set from 2011 and retired in the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
