Hot Wheels is a brand of 1:64, 1:43, 1:18 and 1:50 scale die-cast toy automobiles introduced by American toy manufacturer Mattel in 1968. It had been the primary competitor of Matchbox until 1997, when Mattel purchased Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Though Hot Wheels were initially meant for kids and young adults, so they’ve become popular with mature collectors, such as limited edition models are now made available.
Racing track Collection
Besides the cars themselves, Mattel made a racing track set (sold individually). Though it could be upgraded throughout the years, the first track consisted of a series of brightly colored orange street sections (pieced together to form an oblong, circular race track), with one (or occasionally two) “super chargers” (faux service stations through which cars passed onto the paths, including battery-powered spinning wheels( which would propel the cars along the tracks).
Through time, Hot Wheels cars have been collected mostly by kids, but in the past 15 years[vague] there’s been a rise in the amount of mature collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million children grew up playing with all the toys, the normal collector has over 1,550 automobiles, and children between the ages of 5 and 15 have a mean of 41 automobiles. Most consider the collecting trend began with the Treasure Hunts in 1995. Mike Strauss has been known as the father of Hot Wheels amassing; he has arranged two collectors’ events annually in some sort since 1986. The first event was the yearly Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, normally held every year at the fall. The convention happened in a variety of locations around the country before 2001, when the very first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was set together. Since then, the Conventions are held each year in southern California. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate one of cities outside of California through the spring. Strauss has also released the Rs Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and has been among the first to combine collectors all over the world. He also writes on the Tomart’s Guide To Hot Wheels, a publication listing history, car descriptions and worth, which is used by nearly every collector to find out more about the hobby and also their own collection. Strauss sold his collection in 2011 and retired in the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
