It had been the primary competitor of Matchbox until 1997, when Mattel bought Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Though Hot Wheels were initially meant for children and young adults, so they have become popular with mature lovers, for whom limited edition versions are currently made available.
Racing track set
Besides the cars themselves, Mattel made a racing track record (sold individually). Though it could be upgraded throughout the years, the initial track consisted of a set of brightly colored orange road sections (pieced together to make an oblong, circular race track), with one (or sometimes two) “super walkers” (artificial service stations by which cars passed on the tracks, featuring battery-powered spinning wheels( which would propel the cars across the paths).
Through the years, Hot Wheels cars have been collected mostly by children, but in the last 15 years[vague] there’s been a rise in the number of adult collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million kids grew up playing with all the toys, the ordinary collector has over 1,550 automobiles, and kids between the ages of 5 and 15 have a mean of 41 cars. Most believe the collecting trend began with the Treasure Hunts at 1995. Mike Strauss was called the father of Hot Wheels collecting; he has arranged two collectors’ events each year in some sort since 1986. The first event was the Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, generally held every year at the fall. The convention occurred in a variety of locations around the nation until 2001, once the first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was assembled together. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate one of cities outside of California through the spring. Strauss has also published the quarterly Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and was one of the very first to combine collectors all around the world. He also writes the Tomart’s Guide To Hot Wheels, a book listing history, car descriptions and worth, which can be used by virtually every collector to find out more about the hobby and also their own collection. Strauss sold his group in 2011 and retired in the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
