It was the primary 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, allowing using original design patterns and detailing. Although Hot Wheels were originally meant for kids and young adults, they have become popular with adult collectors, such as limited edition models are now made available.
Racing track Collection
Besides the cars themselves, Mattel produced a racing track record (sold separately). Even though it could be updated throughout time, the initial 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 stations through which cars passed onto the paths, including battery-powered spinning wheels, which would propel the cars across the tracks).
Through the years, Hot Wheels cars have been gathered mostly by children, but at the last 15 years[vague] there has been a rise in the number of mature collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million kids grew up playing with the toys, the normal collector has over 1,550 cars, and kids between the ages of 5 and 15 have a mean of 41 automobiles. Most believe the collecting craze started with the Treasure Hunts at 1995. Mike Strauss has been called the father of Hot Wheels collecting; he has organized two collectors’ occasions each year in some form since 1986. The very first event was the Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, generally held every year at the fall. The convention happened in various locations around the nation until 2001, when the first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was assembled together. 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 among the first to combine collectors all around the world. In addition, he writes the Tomart’s Guide To Hot Wheels, a publication listing history, auto descriptions and values, which is used by almost every collector to learn more about the hobby along with their own collection. Strauss sold his collection from 2011 and retired from the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
