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 was the primary competitor of Matchbox before 1997, when Mattel bought Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Even though Hot Wheels were initially meant for children and young adults, they have become popular with adult lovers, for whom limited edition models are now made available.
Racing track Collection
In addition to the cars themselves, Mattel made a racing track set (sold individually). Even though it would be upgraded throughout the years, the initial track consisted of a series of brightly colored orange road sections (pieced together to form an oblong, circular race track), using one (or sometimes two) “super hitter” (faux service channels by which cars passed on the paths, including battery-powered spinning wheels, which would propel the cars along the tracks).
During time, Hot Wheels cars are collected mostly by children, but at the previous 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 average collector has over 1,550 automobiles, and kids between the ages of 5 and 15 have a mean of 41 cars. Most believe the collecting trend started with this Treasure Hunts at 1995. Mike Strauss has been known as the father of Hot Wheels collecting; he’s arranged two collectors’ events each year in some sort since 1986. The first event was the yearly Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, generally held each year at the fall. The conference occurred in various locations around the nation before 2001, once the first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was set together. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate one of cities out of California throughout the spring. Strauss has also released the Rs Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and has been one of the very first to combine collectors all around the world. He also writes on the Tomart’s Guide Into Hot Wheels, a publication listing history, automobile descriptions and values, which can be used by nearly every collector to find out more about the hobby along with their collection. Strauss sold his set from 2011 and retired in the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
