Hot Wheels is a new 1:64, 1:43, 1:18 and 1:50 scale wracking toy cars introduced by American toy manufacturer Mattel in 1968. It had been the main competitor of Matchbox before 1997, when Mattel purchased Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Many automobile manufacturers have licensed Hot Wheels to make scale models of their cars, permitting the use of original layout blueprints and detailing. Although Hot Wheels were initially intended for kids and young adults, so they’ve become popular with mature collectors, such as limited edition versions are now made available.
Racing track set
In addition to the cars themselves, Mattel made a racing track set (sold individually). Though it could be updated throughout time, the initial trail consisted of a set of brightly colored orange street segments (pieced together to make an oblong( circular race track), using one (or occasionally two) “super chargers” (artificial service stations through which cars passed on the tracks, including battery-powered spinning wheels, which could propel the cars across the paths).
During the years, Hot Wheels cars are collected mostly by kids, but at the previous 15 years[vague] there’s been a rise in the amount of adult collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million kids grew up playing with all the toys, the normal collector has over 1,550 cars, and kids between the ages of 5 and 15 have a mean of 41 automobiles. Most believe the collecting craze began with the Treasure Hunts in 1995. Mike Strauss was known as the father of Hot Wheels amassing; he has organized two collectors’ events annually in some sort since 1986. The very first event was the Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, usually held each year at the fall. The convention occurred in a variety of locations around the country until 2001, when the very first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was assembled together. Since then, the Conventions are held each 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 has been among the first to unite collectors all over the world. In addition, he writes the Tomart’s Guide To Hot Wheels, a book listing history, auto descriptions and values, which can be used by almost every collector to learn more about the hobby and their collection. Strauss sold his set from 2011 and retired from the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
