hot wheels track accessories – HOT WHEELS® TRACK BUILDER 2 Speed Power Booster Accessory
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 before 1997, when Mattel bought Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Even though Hot Wheels were initially meant for children and young adults, so they’ve become popular with mature collectors, for whom limited edition versions are currently made available.
Racing track Collection
In addition to the cars themselves, Mattel made a racing track set (sold individually). Though it could be updated throughout the years, the original track consisted of a series of brightly colored orange road sections (pieced together to form an oblong, circular race track), using a single (or two) “super chargers” (faux service channels through which cars passed onto the paths, featuring battery-powered spinning wheels( which could propel the cars across the paths).
During time, Hot Wheels cars are collected mostly by children, but at the previous 15 years[vague] there’s been a rise in the amount of adult collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million kids grew up playing with the toys, the ordinary collector has over 1,550 automobiles, and kids between the ages of 5 and 15 have a mean of 41 cars. Most believe the collecting craze started with the Treasure Hunts at 1995. Mike Strauss was called the father of Hot Wheels amassing; he has arranged two collectors’ events each year in some sort since 1986. The first event was the Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, generally held every year in the fall. The convention occurred in various locations around the nation before 2001, when the first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was put together. Since then, the Conventions are held each year in southern California. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate one of cities out 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 over the world. In addition, he writes on the Tomart’s Guide Into Hot Wheels, a book listing history, auto descriptions and values, which can be used by nearly every collector to learn more about the hobby along with their own collection. Strauss sold his collection from 2011 and retired in the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
