Hot Wheels is a new 1:64, 1:43, 1:18 and 1:50 scale die-cast toy cars introduced by American toy maker Mattel in 1968. It was the main competitor of Matchbox before 1997, when Mattel bought Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Although Hot Wheels were originally meant for kids and young adults, they have become popular with adult lovers, such as limited edition versions are now made available.
Racing track Collection
Besides the cars themselves, Mattel made a racing track record (sold separately). Although it would be upgraded during time, the first track consisted of a series of brightly colored orange road segments (pieced together to make an oblong, circular race track), with one (or occasionally two) “super walkers” (faux service stations through which cars passed on the paths, including battery-powered spinning wheels( which would propel the cars across the tracks).
During the years, Hot Wheels cars have been gathered mostly by children, but in the past 15 years[vague] there’s been a growth in the number of adult collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million children grew up playing with all the toys, the average collector has over 1,550 cars, and children between the ages of 5 and 15 have an average of 41 automobiles. Most believe the collecting trend started with the Treasure Hunts in 1995. Mike Strauss was known as the father of Hot Wheels collecting; he’s organized two collectors’ occasions each year in some sort since 1986. The very first event was the Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, usually held every year in the fall. The convention happened in a variety of locations around the nation until 2001, when the very first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was put together. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate among cities out of California during 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, automobile descriptions and values, which is used by virtually every collector to find out more about the hobby and their own collection. Strauss sold his collection in 2011 and retired in the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
