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 key competitor of Matchbox until 1997, when Mattel bought Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Many auto manufacturers have licensed Hot Wheels to make scale models of the cars, allowing the use of initial layout patterns and detailing. Even though Hot Wheels were initially intended for children and young adults, they’ve become popular with mature collectors, such as limited edition versions are currently made accessible.
Racing track Collection
In addition to the cars themselves, Mattel produced a racing track set (sold separately). Even though it could be updated during time, the original track consisted of a set of brightly colored orange street segments (pieced together to form an oblong, circular race track), together with one (or two) “super chargers” (faux service channels by which cars passed onto the tracks, featuring battery-powered spinning wheels, which would propel the cars across the paths).
Through time, Hot Wheels cars are gathered mostly by kids, but at the past 15 years[vague] there’s been an increase in the number of adult collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million kids grew up playing with all the toys, the average collector has over 1,550 cars, and children between the ages of 5 and 15 have an average of 41 cars. Most believe the collecting craze began with the Treasure Hunts in 1995. Mike Strauss was known as the father of Hot Wheels collecting; he’s organized two collectors’ occasions each year in some form since 1986. The very first event was the yearly Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, generally held every year in the fall. The convention occurred in various locations around the nation until 2001, once the very first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was placed together. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate among cities out of California throughout the spring. Strauss has also published the quarterly Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and was among the first to unite collectors all around the world. In addition, he writes the Tomart’s Guide Into Hot Wheels, a publication listing history, automobile descriptions and worth, which can be used by nearly every collector to find out more about the hobby and their collection. Strauss sold his collection from 2011 and retired in the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
