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 had been the key competitor of Matchbox until 1997, when Mattel purchased Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Though Hot Wheels were initially meant for children and young adults, so they’ve become popular with mature lovers, such as limited edition versions are now made accessible.
Racing track set
In addition to the cars themselves, Mattel made a racing track record (sold individually). Although it could be upgraded throughout the years, the initial trail consisted of a series of brightly colored orange road sections (pieced together to make an oblong( circular race track), together with one (or two) “super hitter” (faux service channels through which cars passed on the paths, including battery-powered spinning wheels( which could propel the cars across the tracks).
Through time, Hot Wheels cars are gathered mostly by children, but at the previous 15 years[vague] there has been a rise in the amount of adult collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million kids grew up playing with 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. Most consider the collecting trend began with this Treasure Hunts in 1995. Mike Strauss has been known as the father of Hot Wheels collecting; he’s organized two collectors’ events each year in some sort since 1986. The very first event was the yearly Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, normally held every year at the fall. The conference happened in a variety of locations around the country before 2001, once the first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was assembled together. 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 was one of the first to combine collectors all over the world. He also writes on the Tomart’s Guide Into Hot Wheels, a book listing history, auto descriptions and worth, which is used by virtually every collector to learn more about the hobby along with their collection. Strauss sold his collection in 2011 and retired in the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
