hot wheels track and brick pack – Hot Wheels track builder mega pack (20ft)
Hot Wheels is a new 1:64, 1:43, 1:18 and 1:50 scale wracking toy cars introduced by American toy maker Mattel in 1968. It was the primary competitor of Matchbox until 1997, when Mattel bought Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Although Hot Wheels were originally meant for children and young adults, so they’ve become popular with mature lovers, such as limited edition models are now made accessible.
Racing track set
Besides the cars themselves, Mattel produced a racing track record (sold separately). Even though it would be upgraded throughout time, the initial track consisted of a string of brightly colored orange street segments (pieced together to form an oblong, circular race track), using one (or two) “super walkers” (faux service stations through which cars passed on the tracks, including battery-powered spinning wheels( which could propel the cars across the tracks).
Through time, Hot Wheels cars are gathered mostly by kids, but in the last 15 years[vague] there has been a growth in the amount of adult collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million kids grew up playing with the toys, the average collector has over 1,550 automobiles, and kids between the ages of 5 and 15 have an average of 41 automobiles. Most believe the collecting trend started with this Treasure Hunts in 1995. Mike Strauss has been called the father of Hot Wheels collecting; he has arranged two collectors’ events annually in some form since 1986. The very first event was the Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, normally held every year at the fall. The conference happened in various locations around the nation until 2001, when the very first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was assembled together. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate among cities outside of California through the spring. Strauss has also published the quarterly Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and has been one of the first to combine collectors all over the world. He also writes on the Tomart’s Guide To Hot Wheels, a publication listing history, car descriptions and worth, which can be used by almost every collector to learn more about the hobby along with their own collection. Strauss sold his group from 2011 and retired in the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
