It was the key competitor of Matchbox before 1997, when Mattel purchased Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Many auto manufacturers have licensed Hot Wheels to make scale models of their cars, permitting using initial layout patterns and detailing. Even though Hot Wheels were originally meant for children and young adults, so they have become popular with adult collectors, such as limited edition models are now made available.
Racing track Collection
Along with the cars themselves, Mattel produced a racing track set (sold individually). Though it would be updated during time, the first track consisted of a string of brightly colored orange street sections (pieced together to form an oblong, circular race track), with a single (or occasionally two) “super hitter” (faux service channels by which cars passed on the tracks, featuring battery-powered spinning wheels( which would propel the cars along the tracks).
During time, Hot Wheels cars have been gathered mostly by kids, but at the last 15 years[vague] there has been a rise in the number of adult collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million children grew up playing with all the toys, the normal collector has over 1,550 cars, and children between the ages of 5 and 15 have an average of 41 automobiles. Most believe the collecting craze began with the Treasure Hunts at 1995. Mike Strauss has been called the father of Hot Wheels amassing; he has organized two collectors’ events annually in some form since 1986. The very first event was the yearly Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, usually held every year at the fall. The convention happened in various locations around the country before 2001, once the first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was placed together. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate among cities outside of California during the spring. Strauss has also released the Rs Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and has been one of the first to unite collectors all around the world. He also writes on the Tomart’s Guide Into Hot Wheels, a book listing history, automobile descriptions and worth, which is used by virtually every collector to find out more about the hobby along with their collection. Strauss sold his set from 2011 and retired from the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
