Hot Wheels is a new 1:64, 1:43, 1:18 and 1:50 scale wracking toy automobiles introduced by American toy manufacturer Mattel in 1968. It had been the primary competitor of Matchbox until 1997, when Mattel bought Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Though Hot Wheels were initially meant for kids and young adults, so they have become popular with adult collectors, such as limited edition models are currently made available.
Racing track set
Besides the cars themselves, Mattel produced a racing track record (sold individually). Although it could be updated during the years, the original trail consisted of a collection of brightly colored orange street sections (pieced together to make an oblong, circular race track), together with one (or two) “super hitter” (artificial service channels by which cars passed on the paths, featuring battery-powered spinning wheels( which could propel the cars along the tracks).
During the years, Hot Wheels cars have been gathered mostly by kids, but at the last 15 years[vague] there’s been a growth in the amount of mature collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million children grew up playing with all the toys, the average collector has over 1,550 automobiles, and kids between the ages of 5 and 15 have an average of 41 automobiles. Most consider the collecting craze began with this Treasure Hunts in 1995. Mike Strauss has been known as the father of Hot Wheels amassing; he has organized two collectors’ occasions annually in some sort since 1986. The first event was the yearly Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, usually held every year at the autumn. The conference occurred in a variety of locations around the nation before 2001, when the very first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was assembled together. Since then, the Conventions are held each year in southern California. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate among cities out of California through the spring. Strauss has also released the Rs Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and was among the very first to combine collectors all over the world. He also writes on the Tomart’s Guide To Hot Wheels, a publication listing history, automobile descriptions and values, which can be used by virtually every collector to find out more about the hobby and also their own collection. Strauss sold his collection from 2011 and retired in the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
