Racing track set
In addition to the cars themselves, Mattel made a racing track record (sold individually). Although it could be upgraded throughout time, the first track consisted of a collection of brightly colored orange road segments (pieced together to form an oblong, circular race track), with one (or two) “super hitter” (artificial service channels by which cars passed on the tracks, including battery-powered spinning wheels( which could propel the cars along the tracks).
During time, Hot Wheels cars have been gathered mostly by kids, but at the previous 15 years[vague] there’s been a rise in the number of mature 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 consider the collecting craze began with the Treasure Hunts in 1995. Mike Strauss was called the father of Hot Wheels collecting; he’s arranged two collectors’ occasions annually in some sort since 1986. The first event was the Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, generally held each year in the autumn. The convention happened in various locations around the nation before 2001, when the first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was put together. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate among cities outside of California through the spring. Strauss has also published the quarterly Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and was one of the very first to combine collectors all over the world. He also writes on the Tomart’s Guide To Hot Wheels, a publication listing history, auto descriptions and values, which is used by virtually every collector to learn more about the hobby along with their own collection. Strauss sold his collection in 2011 and retired from the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
