It had been 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 the cars, allowing the use of first layout blueprints and detailing. Although Hot Wheels were initially meant for children and young adults, so they have become popular with adult collectors, for whom limited edition models are now made available.
Racing track set
Along with the cars themselves, Mattel produced a racing track record (sold individually). Though it could be upgraded during the years, the original track consisted of a series of brightly colored orange road sections (pieced together to make an oblong( circular race track), with one (or sometimes two) “super chargers” (faux service stations by which cars passed onto the tracks, including battery-powered spinning wheels, which could propel the cars along the paths).
During time, Hot Wheels cars are collected mostly by children, 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 all the toys, the ordinary collector has over 1,550 automobiles, and children between the ages of 5 and 15 have a mean of 41 cars. Most consider the collecting trend began with this Treasure Hunts in 1995. Mike Strauss was called the father of Hot Wheels amassing; he’s organized two collectors’ events annually in some form since 1986. The first event was the yearly Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, generally held every year in the autumn. The convention occurred in various locations around the country until 2001, when the very first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was set together. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate among cities outside of California throughout 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. In addition, he writes on the Tomart’s Guide Into Hot Wheels, a book listing history, auto descriptions and worth, which is used by virtually every collector to find out more about the hobby and also their collection. Strauss sold his group from 2011 and retired in the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
