Hot Wheels is a brand of 1:64, 1:43, 1:18 and 1:50 scale wracking toy cars introduced by American toy manufacturer Mattel in 1968. It was the main competitor of Matchbox until 1997, when Mattel purchased Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Even though Hot Wheels were initially meant for kids and young adults, so they have become popular with mature lovers, for whom limited edition versions are now made accessible.
Racing track set
Along with the cars themselves, Mattel produced a racing track record (sold separately). Although it would be updated during the years, the initial track consisted of a series of brightly colored orange road sections (pieced together to make an oblong( circular race track), together with one (or sometimes two) “super chargers” (artificial service channels through which cars passed on the tracks, featuring battery-powered spinning wheels, which could propel the cars along the paths).
During time, Hot Wheels cars have been collected mostly by children, but at the past 15 years[vague] there’s been a rise in the amount of mature collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million kids grew up playing with the toys, the ordinary collector has over 1,550 cars, and kids between the ages of 5 and 15 have an average of 41 cars. Most believe the collecting craze began with this Treasure Hunts in 1995. Mike Strauss has been known as the father of Hot Wheels amassing; he’s organized two collectors’ occasions annually in some form since 1986. The very first event was the yearly Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, generally held every year in the fall. The conference occurred in a variety of locations around the nation before 2001, when the very first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was set together. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate among cities out of California during the spring. Strauss has also released the Rs Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and was one of the very first to unite collectors all around the world. In addition, he writes the Tomart’s Guide To Hot Wheels, a book listing history, automobile descriptions and values, which is used by almost every collector to find out more about the hobby along with their collection. Strauss sold his collection in 2011 and retired in the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
