It was the key competitor of Matchbox until 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 using original layout patterns and detailing. Although Hot Wheels were originally meant for children and young adults, they’ve become popular with mature lovers, such as limited edition models are now made available.
Racing track Collection
Along with the cars themselves, Mattel made a racing track record (sold separately). Although it could be updated throughout time, the initial track consisted of a collection of brightly colored orange road segments (pieced together to make an oblong( circular race track), using one (or two) “super chargers” (faux service channels by which cars passed on the tracks, including battery-powered spinning wheels, which would propel the cars across the paths).
Through the years, Hot Wheels cars have been collected 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 automobiles, and children between the ages of 5 and 15 have a mean of 41 cars. Most believe the collecting craze began with this Treasure Hunts at 1995. Mike Strauss has been known as the father of Hot Wheels collecting; he’s organized two collectors’ occasions annually in some sort since 1986. The first event was the yearly Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, generally held each year in the fall. The conference happened in various locations around the country before 2001, when the very first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was put together. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate one of cities out of California throughout the spring. Strauss has also published the quarterly Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and has been among the first to unite collectors all over the world. In addition, he writes the Tomart’s Guide To 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 their own collection. Strauss sold his group in 2011 and retired in the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
