Hot Wheels is a brand of 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 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, permitting the use of first layout patterns and detailing. Although Hot Wheels were originally meant for children and young adults, so they’ve become popular with adult lovers, such as limited edition versions are now made accessible.
Racing track Collection
Along with the cars themselves, Mattel made a racing track record (sold individually). Even though it would be upgraded throughout time, the original track consisted of a collection of brightly colored orange street sections (pieced together to form an oblong, circular race track), using a single (or two) “super hitter” (faux service channels through 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 are gathered mostly by kids, but at the last 15 years[vague] there has been a rise in the amount of mature collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million kids grew up playing with the toys, the normal 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 trend started with the Treasure Hunts in 1995. Mike Strauss was called the father of Hot Wheels amassing; he has organized two collectors’ events annually in some sort since 1986. The first event was the Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, usually held each year in the fall. The conference occurred in various locations around the nation until 2001, when the very first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was set together. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate one of cities outside of California during the spring. Strauss has also released the Rs Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and has been one of the first to combine collectors all around the world. He also writes on the Tomart’s Guide Into Hot Wheels, a publication listing history, car descriptions and values, which is used by almost every collector to find out more about the hobby and their own collection. Strauss sold his collection from 2011 and retired from the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
