Hot Wheels is a brand of 1:64, 1:43, 1:18 and 1:50 scale wracking toy automobiles introduced by American toy maker Mattel in 1968. It had been the key competitor of Matchbox before 1997, when Mattel bought Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Many automobile manufacturers have licensed Hot Wheels to make scale models of the cars, allowing the use of initial layout blueprints and detailing. Though Hot Wheels were originally meant for children and young adults, so they’ve become popular with mature lovers, for whom limited edition models are currently made accessible.
Racing track set
In addition to the cars themselves, Mattel produced a racing track set (sold separately). Even though it would be upgraded during time, the first track consisted of a set of brightly colored orange road segments (pieced together to make an oblong, circular race track), using one (or two) “super hitter” (faux service stations through which cars passed on the tracks, including battery-powered spinning wheels( which would propel the cars across the tracks).
During time, Hot Wheels cars are gathered mostly by kids, but in the previous 15 years[vague] there has been a rise in the amount of mature collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million children grew up playing with the toys, the normal collector has over 1,550 cars, and children between the ages of 5 and 15 have a mean of 41 automobiles. Most believe the collecting craze started with this Treasure Hunts at 1995. Mike Strauss was called the father of Hot Wheels amassing; he has arranged two collectors’ events each year in some sort since 1986. The first event was the yearly Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, normally held every year at the fall. The convention occurred in various locations around the country before 2001, when the first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was placed together. Since then, the Conventions are held each 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 over the world. He also writes on the Tomart’s Guide Into Hot Wheels, a publication listing history, car descriptions and values, which can be used by virtually every collector to find out more about the hobby along with their own collection. Strauss sold his set from 2011 and retired in the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
