Hot Wheels is a new 1:64, 1:43, 1:18 and 1:50 scale die-cast toy cars introduced by American toy maker Mattel in 1968. It was the main competitor of Matchbox until 1997, when Mattel bought Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Many automobile manufacturers have licensed Hot Wheels to make scale models of the cars, allowing the use of original layout blueprints and detailing. Even though Hot Wheels were originally intended for kids and young adults, so they have become popular with mature lovers, such as limited edition models are currently made available.
Racing track Collection
In addition to the cars themselves, Mattel produced a racing track set (sold individually). Although it would be upgraded during time, the first track consisted of a collection of brightly colored orange road sections (pieced together to form an oblong( circular race track), using a single (or two) “super hitter” (faux service stations through which cars passed on the paths, including battery-powered spinning wheels( which would propel the cars across the tracks).
During time, Hot Wheels cars have been gathered mostly by kids, but in the previous 15 years[vague] there has been an increase in the amount of mature collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million children grew up playing with all the toys, the average 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 at 1995. Mike Strauss was known as the father of Hot Wheels amassing; he has arranged two collectors’ events each year in some form since 1986. The first event was the Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, normally held every year at the fall. The convention happened in a variety of locations around the country until 2001, when the very first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was put 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 the Tomart’s Guide To Hot Wheels, a publication listing history, car descriptions and worth, which can be used by virtually every collector to find out more about the hobby and their collection. Strauss sold his set in 2011 and retired in the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
