Hot Wheels is a brand of 1:64, 1:43, 1:18 and 1:50 scale die-cast toy cars introduced by American toy maker Mattel in 1968. It had been the main competitor of Matchbox until 1997, when Mattel bought Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Though Hot Wheels were initially intended for kids and young adults, they’ve become popular with adult lovers, for whom limited edition models are currently made accessible.
Racing track Collection
Along with the cars themselves, Mattel produced a racing track record (sold individually). Although it would be updated throughout time, the original track consisted of a set of brightly colored orange road sections (pieced together to make an oblong, circular race track), together with one (or two) “super hitter” (faux service channels by which cars passed onto the paths, featuring 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 past 15 years[vague] there has been a growth in the amount of mature collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million kids grew up playing with the toys, the normal collector has over 1,550 cars, and children between the ages of 5 and 15 have a mean of 41 automobiles. Most believe the collecting trend started with this Treasure Hunts at 1995. Mike Strauss has been called the father of Hot Wheels amassing; he has organized two collectors’ occasions each year in some form since 1986. The first event was the yearly Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, usually held every year in the fall. The conference 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 one of cities outside of California throughout the spring. Strauss has also published the quarterly Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and has been among the very first to unite collectors all over the world. In addition, he writes the Tomart’s Guide To Hot Wheels, a book listing history, car descriptions and worth, which is used by nearly every collector to learn more about the hobby and also their own collection. Strauss sold his group from 2011 and retired from the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
