Hot Wheels is a new 1:64, 1:43, 1:18 and 1:50 scale wracking toy automobiles introduced by American toy manufacturer Mattel in 1968. It had been the main competitor of Matchbox until 1997, when Mattel purchased Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Many automobile manufacturers have licensed Hot Wheels to make scale models of the cars, permitting the use of first design patterns and detailing. Although Hot Wheels were originally intended for children and young adults, they have become popular with mature lovers, for whom limited edition models are currently made accessible.
Racing track Collection
Along with the cars themselves, Mattel made a racing track record (sold separately). Even though it could be updated during time, the first track consisted of a collection of brightly colored orange road segments (pieced together to make an oblong, circular race track), together with one (or sometimes two) “super hitter” (artificial service stations by which cars passed on the tracks, featuring battery-powered spinning wheels, which could propel the cars across the paths).
Through time, Hot Wheels cars have been gathered mostly by children, but in the last 15 years[vague] there’s been a rise in the number of mature collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million children 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 cars. Most believe the collecting craze started with this Treasure Hunts at 1995. Mike Strauss has been called the father of Hot Wheels amassing; he has organized two collectors’ events annually in some sort since 1986. The first event was the Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, normally held every year in the autumn. The convention occurred in a variety of locations around the country before 2001, once the 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 released the Rs Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and has been among the very first to unite collectors all around the world. He also writes the Tomart’s Guide Into Hot Wheels, a book listing history, car descriptions and values, which can be used by virtually every collector to find out more about the hobby and their own collection. Strauss sold his collection in 2011 and retired from the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
