It had been the primary competitor of Matchbox until 1997, when Mattel bought Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Though Hot Wheels were originally intended for children and young adults, they have become popular with mature collectors, such as limited edition versions are now made accessible.
Racing track Collection
Besides the cars themselves, Mattel made a racing track set (sold separately). Even though it would be upgraded throughout the years, the initial track consisted of a series of brightly colored orange street segments (pieced together to form an oblong( circular race track), together with one (or occasionally two) “super walkers” (faux service stations through which cars passed onto the paths, featuring battery-powered spinning wheels, which could propel the cars across the tracks).
During the years, Hot Wheels cars have been gathered mostly by kids, but at the previous 15 years[vague] there has been a rise in the amount of adult collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million children grew up playing with all the toys, the typical collector has over 1,550 cars, and kids between the ages of 5 and 15 have a mean of 41 cars. Most consider the collecting craze started with the Treasure Hunts at 1995. Mike Strauss has been called the father of Hot Wheels collecting; he’s organized two collectors’ events each year in some form since 1986. The first event was the Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, generally held each year in the autumn. The conference occurred in various locations around the country before 2001, when the first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was placed together. Since that time, the Conventions are held each year in southern California. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate among cities out of California throughout the spring. Strauss has also released the Rs 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 To Hot Wheels, a publication listing history, auto descriptions and worth, which is used by virtually every collector to find out more about the hobby and their own collection. Strauss sold his group from 2011 and retired from the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
