Hot Wheels is a new 1:64, 1:43, 1:18 and 1:50 scale wracking toy cars introduced by American toy manufacturer Mattel in 1968. It was the primary competitor of Matchbox before 1997, when Mattel bought Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Although Hot Wheels were initially intended for children and young adults, so they’ve become popular with adult lovers, such as limited edition models are now made available.
Racing track Collection
Besides the cars themselves, Mattel made a racing track record (sold individually). Even though it would be updated throughout the years, the first trail consisted of a string of brightly colored orange street sections (pieced together to form an oblong( circular race track), together with one (or occasionally two) “super hitter” (faux service channels by which cars passed onto the tracks, including battery-powered spinning wheels, which would propel the cars across the paths).
Through the years, Hot Wheels cars have been gathered mostly by children, but in the past 15 years[vague] there’s been a rise in the number of mature collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million children grew up playing with all the toys, the normal collector has over 1,550 automobiles, and kids between the ages of 5 and 15 have an average of 41 cars. Most consider the collecting trend began with this Treasure Hunts in 1995. Mike Strauss has been known as the father of Hot Wheels collecting; he’s organized two collectors’ occasions each year in some sort since 1986. The first event was the yearly Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, normally held every year in the autumn. The conference occurred in various locations around the country before 2001, once the first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was assembled together. Since that time, the Conventions are held each year in southern California. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate among cities outside of California through the spring. Strauss has also published the quarterly Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and has been among the first to unite collectors all over the world. He also writes the Tomart’s Guide To Hot Wheels, a book listing history, car descriptions and values, which can be used by virtually every collector to find out more about the hobby and also their own collection. Strauss sold his set from 2011 and retired from the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
