It had been the primary competitor of Matchbox until 1997, when Mattel bought Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Though Hot Wheels were initially meant for kids and young adults, so they’ve become popular with adult lovers, for whom limited edition models are now made accessible.
Racing track set
Along with the cars themselves, Mattel made a racing track set (sold separately). Though it would be updated during the years, the initial track consisted of a collection of brightly colored orange road sections (pieced together to form an oblong( circular race track), using a single (or two) “super walkers” (artificial service channels through which cars passed onto the paths, featuring battery-powered spinning wheels, which would propel the cars across the paths).
During time, Hot Wheels cars have been gathered mostly by kids, but in the previous 15 years[vague] there’s been a growth in the number 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 an average of 41 automobiles. Most believe the collecting craze started with the Treasure Hunts at 1995. Mike Strauss has been known as the father of Hot Wheels collecting; he’s arranged two collectors’ events each year in some form since 1986. The first event was the Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, normally held every year in the fall. The convention happened in various locations around the nation until 2001, when the very first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was assembled 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 published the quarterly Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and has been one of the very first to unite collectors all over the world. He also writes the Tomart’s Guide To Hot Wheels, a book listing history, automobile descriptions and values, which is used by nearly every collector to learn more about the hobby along with their own collection. Strauss sold his set in 2011 and retired from the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
