Hot Wheels is a brand of 1:64, 1:43, 1:18 and 1:50 scale wracking toy cars introduced by American toy manufacturer Mattel in 1968. It was the key competitor of Matchbox until 1997, when Mattel bought Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.

Racing track Collection
Along with the cars themselves, Mattel made a racing track record (sold separately). Even though it would be updated throughout time, the original trail consisted of a set of brightly colored orange road sections (pieced together to form an oblong( circular race track), with one (or occasionally two) “super hitter” (faux service channels by which cars passed on the tracks, featuring battery-powered spinning wheels, which would propel the cars across the paths).
During the years, Hot Wheels cars have been gathered mostly by children, but at the previous 15 years[vague] there’s been an increase in the amount of mature collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million children grew up playing with the toys, the typical collector has over 1,550 cars, and children 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 has arranged two collectors’ occasions each year in some sort since 1986. The first event was the yearly Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, usually held every year at the autumn. The conference happened in various locations around the nation before 2001, when the first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was put together. 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 among the first to combine collectors all over the world. He also writes the Tomart’s Guide To Hot Wheels, a book listing history, auto descriptions and values, which can be used by nearly every collector to find out more about the hobby and their collection. Strauss sold his set in 2011 and retired from the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
