hot wheels track day set – HOT WHEELS CAR CULTURE 2016 DASH CODE D / TRACK DAY / 5
It had been the primary 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 original design blueprints and detailing. Although Hot Wheels were originally intended for children and young adults, they have become popular with mature collectors, for whom limited edition versions are now made available.
Racing track Collection
In addition to the cars themselves, Mattel made a racing track set (sold separately). Though it would be updated during time, the first track consisted of a set of brightly colored orange street sections (pieced together to form an oblong, circular race track), together with a single (or two) “super hitter” (faux service channels through which cars passed on the paths, including battery-powered spinning wheels( which would propel the cars across the paths).
Through time, Hot Wheels cars are collected mostly by kids, but in the previous 15 years[vague] there’s been a rise in the number of adult collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million kids grew up playing with all the toys, the typical collector has over 1,550 cars, and kids between the ages of 5 and 15 have an average of 41 cars. Most believe the collecting trend started with the Treasure Hunts at 1995. Mike Strauss has been known as the father of Hot Wheels collecting; he has arranged two collectors’ events each year in some sort since 1986. The very first event was the yearly Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, normally held each year at the fall. The conference occurred in a variety of locations around the nation before 2001, when the first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was placed together. 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 was among the very first to unite collectors all over the world. In addition, he writes on the Tomart’s Guide To Hot Wheels, a book listing history, auto descriptions and worth, which can be used by virtually every collector to find out more about the hobby and their own collection. Strauss sold his collection from 2011 and retired from the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
