Hot Wheels is a brand of 1:64, 1:43, 1:18 and 1:50 scale die-cast toy automobiles introduced by American toy maker Mattel in 1968. It was the primary competitor of Matchbox until 1997, when Mattel bought Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Though Hot Wheels were originally meant for kids and young adults, so they’ve become popular with adult collectors, for whom limited edition versions are now made accessible.
Racing track set
In addition to the cars themselves, Mattel made a racing track set (sold separately). Though it would be upgraded throughout time, the initial track consisted of a string of brightly colored orange road segments (pieced together to form an oblong, circular race track), using a single (or two) “super walkers” (artificial service stations through which cars passed on the tracks, featuring battery-powered spinning wheels( which could propel the cars across the paths).
Through the years, Hot Wheels cars have been collected mostly by kids, but at the past 15 years[vague] there’s been a rise in the number of adult 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 a mean of 41 automobiles. Most believe the collecting trend started with this Treasure Hunts at 1995. Mike Strauss was known as the father of Hot Wheels collecting; he’s arranged two collectors’ events each year in some sort since 1986. The first event was the yearly Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, generally held each year at the fall. The convention happened in various locations around the nation until 2001, when the first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was placed together. Ever since that time, the Conventions are held every year in southern California. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate among cities outside of California through the spring. Strauss has also released the Rs Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and has been one of the first to combine collectors all over the world. In addition, he writes on the Tomart’s Guide Into Hot Wheels, a book listing history, automobile descriptions and values, which can be used by nearly every collector to find out more about the hobby and also their collection. Strauss sold his set in 2011 and retired in the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
