Hot Wheels is a brand of 1:64, 1:43, 1:18 and 1:50 scale die-cast toy cars introduced by American toy manufacturer Mattel in 1968. It had been the key competitor of Matchbox before 1997, when Mattel bought Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Many automobile manufacturers have licensed Hot Wheels to make scale models of their cars, allowing the use of first layout blueprints and detailing. Although Hot Wheels were initially intended for kids and young adults, they’ve become popular with adult collectors, for whom limited edition models are currently made available.
Racing track Collection
In addition to the cars themselves, Mattel produced a racing track record (sold individually). Though it could be updated during the years, the initial trail consisted of a series of brightly colored orange street segments (pieced together to form an oblong( circular race track), with one (or occasionally two) “super walkers” (artificial service channels by which cars passed onto the paths, including battery-powered spinning wheels, which would propel the cars along the paths).
During time, Hot Wheels cars have been collected mostly by kids, but in the past 15 years[vague] there’s been a growth 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 automobiles, and children between the ages of 5 and 15 have a mean of 41 cars. Most consider the collecting trend began with the Treasure Hunts at 1995. Mike Strauss was known as the father of Hot Wheels collecting; he’s organized two collectors’ events annually in some form since 1986. The first event was the Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, normally held every year at the autumn. The conference happened in a variety of locations around the country before 2001, when the first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was assembled together. Ever since then, the Conventions are held every 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 was one of the first to unite collectors all over the world. In addition, he writes on the Tomart’s Guide Into Hot Wheels, a publication listing history, auto descriptions and values, which can be used by virtually every collector to find out more about the hobby and also their collection. Strauss sold his collection from 2011 and retired from the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
