Hot Wheels is a new 1:64, 1:43, 1:18 and 1:50 scale die-cast toy automobiles introduced by American toy maker Mattel in 1968. It was the key competitor of Matchbox until 1997, when Mattel bought Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Although Hot Wheels were originally intended for children and young adults, so they have become popular with adult collectors, such as limited edition models are now made available.
Racing track Collection
In addition to the cars themselves, Mattel made a racing track set (sold individually). Although it would be upgraded throughout the years, the first trail consisted of a series of brightly colored orange road segments (pieced together to form an oblong( circular race track), with a single (or sometimes two) “super chargers” (artificial service stations through which cars passed on the tracks, including battery-powered spinning wheels, which would propel the cars along the paths).
During time, Hot Wheels cars have been collected mostly by children, but at the past 15 years[vague] there’s been an increase in the amount of mature collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million kids grew up playing with the toys, the average collector has over 1,550 cars, and kids between the ages of 5 and 15 have a mean of 41 automobiles. Most believe the collecting craze began with this Treasure Hunts at 1995. Mike Strauss was known as the father of Hot Wheels amassing; he has arranged two collectors’ occasions annually in some form since 1986. The first event was the Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, normally held each year in the fall. The convention happened in various locations around the nation until 2001, once the very first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was assembled 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 has been one of the very first to combine collectors all over the world. He also writes the Tomart’s Guide To Hot Wheels, a book listing history, auto descriptions and worth, which can be used by almost every collector to find out more about the hobby and their own collection. Strauss sold his group from 2011 and retired from the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
