Hot Wheels is a brand of 1:64, 1:43, 1:18 and 1:50 scale die-cast toy automobiles 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.
Many automobile manufacturers have licensed Hot Wheels to make scale models of the cars, permitting using first layout blueprints and detailing. Although Hot Wheels were originally intended for children and young adults, so they have become popular with mature collectors, such as limited edition versions are currently made available.
Racing track Collection
Along with the cars themselves, Mattel made a racing track record (sold separately). Even though it would be upgraded during the years, the initial track consisted of a string of brightly colored orange street sections (pieced together to form an oblong( circular race track), using one (or sometimes two) “super hitter” (faux service channels by which cars passed onto the paths, including battery-powered spinning wheels( which would propel the cars along the paths).
Through time, Hot Wheels cars are gathered mostly by kids, but at the previous 15 years[vague] there has been a growth in the amount of mature collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million kids grew up playing with all the toys, the ordinary collector has over 1,550 automobiles, and kids between the ages of 5 and 15 have an average of 41 automobiles. Most consider the collecting craze started with this Treasure Hunts at 1995. Mike Strauss has been called the father of Hot Wheels amassing; he’s arranged two collectors’ occasions annually in some sort since 1986. The first event was the yearly Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, usually held each year in the fall. The convention occurred in various locations around the country before 2001, once the 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 one of cities out of California through the spring. Strauss has also published the quarterly Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and was one of the first to combine collectors all around the world. In addition, he writes on the Tomart’s Guide To Hot Wheels, a publication listing history, car descriptions and worth, which can be used by virtually every collector to learn more about the hobby and their own collection. Strauss sold his set from 2011 and retired in the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
