Hot Wheels is a brand of 1:64, 1:43, 1:18 and 1:50 scale die-cast toy automobiles 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.
Many auto manufacturers have licensed Hot Wheels to make scale models of their cars, permitting the use of first design patterns and detailing. Though Hot Wheels were originally intended for kids and young adults, they’ve become popular with mature collectors, such as limited edition versions are currently made accessible.
Racing track Collection
Along with the cars themselves, Mattel made a racing track record (sold separately). Even though it would be updated during the years, the original track consisted of a string of brightly colored orange street sections (pieced together to form an oblong( circular race track), together with a single (or occasionally two) “super chargers” (artificial service channels through which cars passed on the tracks, featuring battery-powered spinning wheels( which could propel the cars across the paths).
Through time, Hot Wheels cars have been collected mostly by kids, but in the previous 15 years[vague] there has been an increase in the number of adult collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million children grew up playing with 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 the Treasure Hunts at 1995. Mike Strauss has been called the father of Hot Wheels amassing; he has organized two collectors’ events each year in some sort since 1986. The first event was the yearly Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, usually held each year in the autumn. The conference occurred in a variety of locations around the country until 2001, once the first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was placed together. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate among cities out of California during the spring. Strauss has also published the quarterly Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and was one of the very first to combine collectors all over the world. In addition, he writes on the Tomart’s Guide To Hot Wheels, a book listing history, automobile descriptions and worth, which is used by nearly every collector to find out more about the hobby and their collection. Strauss sold his collection from 2011 and retired in the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
