Hot Wheels is a brand of 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 primary 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, allowing using first design patterns and detailing. Although Hot Wheels were initially intended for children and young adults, so they have become popular with mature collectors, for whom limited edition versions are currently made accessible.
Racing track Collection
Besides the cars themselves, Mattel made a racing track set (sold separately). Though it would be upgraded during time, the original trail consisted of a set of brightly colored orange street segments (pieced together to form an oblong( circular race track), using a single (or two) “super walkers” (artificial service channels through which cars passed onto the paths, including battery-powered spinning wheels, which could propel the cars across the paths).
Through the years, Hot Wheels cars have been collected mostly by children, but at the last 15 years[vague] there’s been a rise in the amount of mature collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million kids grew up playing with all the toys, the average collector has over 1,550 cars, and kids between the ages of 5 and 15 have an average of 41 automobiles. Most consider the collecting trend started with the Treasure Hunts at 1995. Mike Strauss was called the father of Hot Wheels collecting; he has arranged two collectors’ occasions each year in some sort since 1986. The first event was the yearly Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, normally held each year in the autumn. The conference happened in a variety of locations around the nation until 2001, when the very first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was put together. Ever 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 published the quarterly Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and has been one of the very first to combine collectors all around the world. In addition, he writes on the Tomart’s Guide To Hot Wheels, a publication listing history, automobile descriptions and worth, which is used by virtually every collector to learn more about the hobby along with their collection. Strauss sold his group from 2011 and retired in the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
