It had been the key competitor of Matchbox before 1997, when Mattel bought Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Many automobile manufacturers have licensed Hot Wheels to make scale models of their cars, permitting the use of initial design patterns and detailing. Although Hot Wheels were initially meant for kids and young adults, so they have become popular with mature lovers, such as limited edition versions are now made available.
Racing track set
Along with the cars themselves, Mattel produced a racing track set (sold separately). Even though it would be updated throughout the years, the original track consisted of a collection of brightly colored orange road segments (pieced together to make an oblong( circular race track), together with a single (or two) “super hitter” (artificial service channels through which cars passed onto the paths, including battery-powered spinning wheels, which could propel the cars across the tracks).
During time, Hot Wheels cars have been collected mostly by children, but at the past 15 years[vague] there has been a growth in the amount of adult collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million kids grew up playing with all the toys, the ordinary 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 the 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 first event was the Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, normally held every year at the autumn. The conference occurred in a variety of locations around the nation until 2001, when the first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was placed together. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate one of cities out of California through the spring. Strauss has also published the quarterly Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and has been one of the first to combine collectors all over the world. He also writes the Tomart’s Guide To Hot Wheels, a book listing history, automobile descriptions and values, which is used by nearly every collector to learn more about the hobby and also their own collection. Strauss sold his collection from 2011 and retired in the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
