It was the primary competitor of Matchbox until 1997, when Mattel bought Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Though Hot Wheels were originally intended for kids and young adults, they’ve become popular with adult lovers, for whom limited edition versions are currently made available.
Racing track set
Along with the cars themselves, Mattel produced a racing track set (sold individually). Even though it could be updated during the years, the original track consisted of a series of brightly colored orange road sections (pieced together to form an oblong( circular race track), together with one (or sometimes two) “super hitter” (artificial service channels through which cars passed onto the tracks, featuring battery-powered spinning wheels( which would propel the cars along the tracks).
Through the years, Hot Wheels cars have been gathered mostly by children, but in the past 15 years[vague] there’s been a rise in the number of mature collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million kids grew up playing with all the toys, the typical collector has over 1,550 cars, and children between the ages of 5 and 15 have a mean of 41 automobiles. Most believe the collecting trend started with the Treasure Hunts at 1995. Mike Strauss has been called the father of Hot Wheels amassing; he has organized two collectors’ occasions each year in some sort since 1986. The very first event was the Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, normally held every year at the autumn. The convention occurred in a variety of locations around the country until 2001, once the very first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was put together. Since then, the Conventions are held every year in southern California. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate among cities out of California through the spring. Strauss has also released the Rs Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and was one of the first to combine collectors all over the world. He also writes on the Tomart’s Guide Into Hot Wheels, a publication listing history, automobile descriptions and worth, which can be used by almost every collector to learn more about the hobby and their own collection. Strauss sold his group from 2011 and retired from the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
