It was the primary competitor of Matchbox before 1997, when Mattel purchased Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Even though Hot Wheels were initially meant for kids and young adults, so they’ve become popular with adult lovers, for whom limited edition versions are now made available.
Racing track Collection
Along with the cars themselves, Mattel made a racing track set (sold separately). Although it would be updated during the years, the first track consisted of a string of brightly colored orange road segments (pieced together to make an oblong( circular race track), using one (or two) “super chargers” (faux service channels through which cars passed on the paths, featuring battery-powered spinning wheels, which would propel the cars along the paths).
Through the years, Hot Wheels cars have been gathered mostly by kids, but in the past 15 years[vague] there has been an increase 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 craze began with the Treasure Hunts in 1995. Mike Strauss was known as the father of Hot Wheels collecting; he has arranged two collectors’ occasions annually in some form since 1986. The first event was the yearly Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, generally held each year in the autumn. The conference happened in various locations around the country until 2001, once the very first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was assembled together. Ever since then, the Conventions are held each year in southern California. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate among cities outside of California during the spring. Strauss has also released the Rs Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and was among the first to unite collectors all over the world. In addition, he writes the Tomart’s Guide To Hot Wheels, a publication listing history, automobile descriptions and values, which can be used by nearly every collector to learn more about the hobby along with their own collection. Strauss sold his group from 2011 and retired from the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
