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 mature lovers, such as limited edition versions are currently made accessible.
Racing track Collection
Along with the cars themselves, Mattel produced a racing track record (sold individually). Though it would be updated throughout time, the first track consisted of a collection of brightly colored orange road sections (pieced together to make an oblong, circular race track), with a single (or sometimes two) “super walkers” (faux service stations through which cars passed onto the paths, including battery-powered spinning wheels, which would propel the cars along the tracks).
During time, Hot Wheels cars have been gathered mostly by kids, but in the previous 15 years[vague] there has been an increase in the number of adult collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million kids grew up playing with 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 consider the collecting craze began with the Treasure Hunts at 1995. Mike Strauss has been called the father of Hot Wheels collecting; he’s arranged two collectors’ events each year in some sort since 1986. The first event was the Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, usually held every year at the fall. The conference occurred in a variety of locations around the nation before 2001, once the first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was assembled together. Ever since then, the Conventions are held each year in southern California. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate one of cities out of California through the spring. Strauss has also released the Rs Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and has been among the first to combine collectors all around the world. In addition, he writes on the Tomart’s Guide Into Hot Wheels, a book listing history, car descriptions and values, which is used by almost every collector to learn more about the hobby along with their own collection. Strauss sold his group in 2011 and retired from the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
