Racing track set

Along with the cars themselves, Mattel made a racing track set (sold separately). Though it could be updated throughout the years, the original track consisted of a collection of brightly colored orange road sections (pieced together to make an oblong, circular race track), using a single (or occasionally two) “super walkers” (artificial service stations by which cars passed on the tracks, featuring battery-powered spinning wheels, which could propel the cars along the tracks).

Through time, Hot Wheels cars are gathered mostly by children, but in the previous 15 years[vague] there’s been a growth in the number of mature collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million kids grew up playing with all the toys, the typical collector has over 1,550 cars, and children between the ages of 5 and 15 have an average of 41 cars. Most believe the collecting craze started with the Treasure Hunts in 1995. Mike Strauss was known as the father of Hot Wheels collecting; he has arranged two collectors’ occasions each year in some sort since 1986. The very first event was the Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, generally held each year in the autumn. The conference happened in various locations around the nation until 2001, once the first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was placed together. Ever since then, the Conventions are held each year in southern California. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate one of cities outside of California during the spring. Strauss has also published the quarterly Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and has been one of the first to unite collectors all over the world. In addition, he writes the Tomart’s Guide Into Hot Wheels, a book listing history, auto descriptions and values, which can be used by almost every collector to find out more about the hobby and also their own collection. Strauss sold his group in 2011 and retired in the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
