Hot Wheels is a new 1:64, 1:43, 1:18 and 1:50 scale die-cast toy automobiles introduced by American toy manufacturer Mattel in 1968. It had been the key competitor of Matchbox before 1997, when Mattel purchased Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Many auto manufacturers have licensed Hot Wheels to make scale models of the cars, allowing the use of first design blueprints and detailing. Although Hot Wheels were originally meant for kids and young adults, they’ve become popular with mature collectors, for whom limited edition versions are currently made available.
Racing track Collection
Besides the cars themselves, Mattel produced a racing track set (sold separately). Even though it would be upgraded during time, the original track consisted of a string of brightly colored orange street sections (pieced together to make an oblong( circular race track), using a single (or sometimes two) “super walkers” (faux service stations through which cars passed on the tracks, including battery-powered spinning wheels( which would propel the cars across the paths).
Through time, Hot Wheels cars have been collected mostly by children, but at the last 15 years[vague] there has been a rise in the number of adult collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million children grew up playing with the toys, the average collector has over 1,550 cars, and kids between the ages of 5 and 15 have a mean of 41 cars. Most believe the collecting trend began with this Treasure Hunts in 1995. Mike Strauss has been known as the father of Hot Wheels collecting; he’s organized two collectors’ events annually in some form since 1986. The very first event was the yearly Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, normally held each year at the autumn. The conference happened in a variety of locations around the nation until 2001, once the very first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was set together. Since that time, the Conventions are held each year in southern California. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate one of cities outside of California through the spring. Strauss has also released the Rs Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and was among the very first to unite collectors all over the world. He also writes the Tomart’s Guide To Hot Wheels, a publication listing history, car descriptions and worth, which is used by nearly every collector to learn more about the hobby and their own collection. Strauss sold his group from 2011 and retired in the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
