Hot Wheels is a brand of 1:64, 1:43, 1:18 and 1:50 scale wracking toy automobiles introduced by American toy manufacturer Mattel in 1968. It was the main competitor of Matchbox until 1997, when Mattel purchased Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Many auto manufacturers have licensed Hot Wheels to make scale models of their cars, allowing using first layout blueprints and detailing. Though Hot Wheels were initially intended for kids and young adults, they’ve become popular with mature lovers, such as limited edition versions are now made available.
Racing track set
Along with the cars themselves, Mattel produced a racing track record (sold separately). Even though it would be updated during time, the first trail consisted of a series of brightly colored orange street sections (pieced together to make an oblong, circular race track), using a single (or occasionally two) “super walkers” (faux service channels through which cars passed onto the paths, including battery-powered spinning wheels( which could propel the cars across the paths).
During time, Hot Wheels cars are collected mostly by kids, but at the last 15 years[vague] there’s been a growth in the amount of adult collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million children grew up playing with the toys, the typical collector has over 1,550 automobiles, and children between the ages of 5 and 15 have an average of 41 cars. Most believe the collecting craze started with the Treasure Hunts at 1995. Mike Strauss has been called the father of Hot Wheels amassing; he’s organized two collectors’ events each year in some sort since 1986. The very first event was the Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, generally held every year at the autumn. The conference happened in a variety of locations around the country until 2001, once the first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was set 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 among the first to combine collectors all around the world. He also writes on the Tomart’s Guide Into Hot Wheels, a book listing history, auto descriptions and worth, which can be used by virtually every collector to learn more about the hobby along with their collection. Strauss sold his set in 2011 and retired in the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
