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 main competitor of Matchbox before 1997, when Mattel purchased Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Even though Hot Wheels were originally intended for children and young adults, they have become popular with mature lovers, for whom limited edition versions are now made accessible.
Racing track set
Besides the cars themselves, Mattel produced a racing track record (sold separately). Even though it could be updated throughout the years, the initial track consisted of a set of brightly colored orange street 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 paths, featuring battery-powered spinning wheels( which could propel the cars along the tracks).
Through the years, Hot Wheels cars are collected mostly by children, but at the last 15 years[vague] there’s been a growth in the amount of adult collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million kids grew up playing with all the toys, the average collector has over 1,550 automobiles, and children between the ages of 5 and 15 have a mean of 41 cars. Most consider the collecting trend began with the Treasure Hunts at 1995. Mike Strauss has been known as the father of Hot Wheels amassing; he’s organized two collectors’ occasions each year in some form since 1986. The first event was the Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, normally held each year at the autumn. The conference occurred in a variety of locations around the nation before 2001, once the first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was placed together. Since that time, the Conventions are held every year in southern California. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate one of cities outside of California during the spring. Strauss has also released the Rs Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and was among the first to combine collectors all around the world. He also writes the Tomart’s Guide Into Hot Wheels, a publication listing history, car descriptions and values, which is used by virtually every collector to find out more about the hobby and also their collection. Strauss sold his collection from 2011 and retired from the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
