Hot Wheels is a new 1:64, 1:43, 1:18 and 1:50 scale die-cast toy cars introduced by American toy manufacturer Mattel in 1968. It was the key competitor of Matchbox before 1997, when Mattel bought Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Although Hot Wheels were initially intended for kids and young adults, so they have become popular with mature collectors, such as limited edition models are currently made available.
Racing track set
In addition to the cars themselves, Mattel made a racing track set (sold individually). Even though it could be upgraded throughout the years, the first trail consisted of a string of brightly colored orange road sections (pieced together to form an oblong( circular race track), with a single (or two) “super chargers” (faux service channels through which cars passed onto the paths, featuring battery-powered spinning wheels, which would propel the cars across the tracks).
Through the years, Hot Wheels cars are collected mostly by kids, but at 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 the toys, the normal 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 trend started with the Treasure Hunts at 1995. Mike Strauss has been called the father of Hot Wheels amassing; he’s organized two collectors’ events each year in some form since 1986. The first event was the yearly Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, normally held every year at the fall. The convention happened in various locations around the nation before 2001, once the first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was set together. Ever since then, the Conventions are held every year in southern California. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate among cities outside of California throughout the spring. Strauss has also released the Rs Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and has been one of the first to combine collectors all around the world. In addition, he writes the Tomart’s Guide Into Hot Wheels, a publication listing history, car descriptions and values, which can be used by almost every collector to find out more about the hobby and their collection. Strauss sold his set in 2011 and retired from the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
