It had been the main competitor of Matchbox until 1997, when Mattel purchased Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Even though Hot Wheels were initially intended for children and young adults, they’ve become popular with adult collectors, for whom limited edition models are currently made available.
Racing track Collection
Besides the cars themselves, Mattel made a racing track record (sold separately). Even though it would be upgraded during the years, the initial track consisted of a collection of brightly colored orange street sections (pieced together to make an oblong( circular race track), together with one (or occasionally two) “super walkers” (artificial service channels by which cars passed onto the paths, including battery-powered spinning wheels, which could propel the cars along the paths).
Through the years, Hot Wheels cars are gathered mostly by kids, but at the last 15 years[vague] there has been a growth in the number of mature collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million children grew up playing with the toys, the ordinary collector has over 1,550 automobiles, 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 at 1995. Mike Strauss has been known as the father of Hot Wheels collecting; he’s organized two collectors’ events each year in some sort 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 until 2001, once 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 released the Rs Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and has been one of the first to unite collectors all around the world. He also writes the Tomart’s Guide To Hot Wheels, a publication listing history, car descriptions and values, which is used by almost every collector to learn more about the hobby along with their collection. Strauss sold his set from 2011 and retired from the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
