Mattel estimates that 41 million children grew up playing with all the toys, the typical collector has over 1,550 cars, and kids between the ages of 5 and 15 have a mean of 41 automobiles.

Mike Strauss has been known as the father of Hot Wheels amassing; he’s organized two collectors’ events annually in some form since 1986. The first event was the Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, usually held each year at the fall. The convention occurred in various locations around the nation 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 one of cities out 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. In addition, he writes on the Tomart’s Guide Into Hot Wheels, a book listing history, car descriptions and worth, which can be used by nearly every collector to learn more about the hobby and their collection. Strauss sold his set in 2011 and retired in the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
