It was the key competitor of Matchbox until 1997, when Mattel purchased Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Many automobile manufacturers have licensed Hot Wheels to make scale models of the cars, allowing the use of initial design patterns and detailing. Though Hot Wheels were initially intended for kids and young adults, they have become popular with adult collectors, for whom limited edition models are currently made available.
Racing track set
Besides the cars themselves, Mattel made a racing track set (sold individually). Even though it would be upgraded throughout the years, the initial trail consisted of a string of brightly colored orange street segments (pieced together to make an oblong, circular race track), using a single (or sometimes two) “super hitter” (faux service stations through which cars passed onto the paths, featuring battery-powered spinning wheels( which would propel the cars across the paths).
Through time, Hot Wheels cars are gathered mostly by children, but in the last 15 years[vague] there’s been an increase in the amount of mature collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million kids grew up playing with 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 craze started with the Treasure Hunts in 1995. Mike Strauss has been called the father of Hot Wheels amassing; he’s arranged two collectors’ events each year in some form since 1986. The first event was the yearly Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, usually held every year at the fall. The convention happened in various locations around the nation before 2001, when the first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was set 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 unite collectors all over the world. In addition, he writes on the Tomart’s Guide To Hot Wheels, a publication listing history, car descriptions and worth, which is used by nearly every collector to find out more about the hobby and also their collection. Strauss sold his group from 2011 and retired in the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
