It had been the primary competitor of Matchbox before 1997, when Mattel purchased Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Though Hot Wheels were originally meant for children and young adults, they have become popular with mature collectors, such as limited edition versions are currently made available.
Racing track set
Along with the cars themselves, Mattel made a racing track record (sold separately). Even though it could be updated during time, the first track consisted of a string of brightly colored orange street segments (pieced together to make an oblong( circular race track), using a single (or occasionally two) “super chargers” (artificial service stations by which cars passed on the tracks, featuring battery-powered spinning wheels, which would propel the cars along the paths).
During the years, Hot Wheels cars have been gathered mostly by kids, but in the past 15 years[vague] there has been an increase in the amount of mature collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million kids grew up playing with all the toys, the normal collector has over 1,550 cars, and children between the ages of 5 and 15 have a mean of 41 automobiles. Most consider the collecting trend began with this Treasure Hunts at 1995. Mike Strauss has been called the father of Hot Wheels collecting; he has organized two collectors’ occasions each year in some sort since 1986. The first event was the yearly Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, usually held every year at the fall. The conference occurred in various locations around the nation before 2001, when the very first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was assembled together. Ever since then, 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 published the quarterly Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and has been one of the very first to unite collectors all over the world. He also writes on the Tomart’s Guide Into Hot Wheels, a publication listing history, automobile descriptions and values, which can be used by virtually every collector to learn more about the hobby and their collection. Strauss sold his collection from 2011 and retired from the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
