Hot Wheels is a brand of 1:64, 1:43, 1:18 and 1:50 scale die-cast toy automobiles introduced by American toy manufacturer Mattel in 1968. It was the primary competitor of Matchbox until 1997, when Mattel purchased Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Though Hot Wheels were initially intended for kids and young adults, so they have become popular with mature lovers, such as limited edition versions are currently made available.
Racing track Collection
Besides the cars themselves, Mattel made a racing track record (sold separately). Though it could be upgraded during time, the first trail consisted of a set of brightly colored orange road segments (pieced together to make an oblong( circular race track), using a single (or two) “super hitter” (artificial service stations through which cars passed on the paths, including battery-powered spinning wheels, which would propel the cars along the tracks).
Through the years, Hot Wheels cars are collected mostly by kids, but at the past 15 years[vague] there has been an increase in the amount of adult collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million children grew up playing with the toys, the normal 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 in 1995. Mike Strauss has been known as the father of Hot Wheels collecting; he has arranged two collectors’ occasions annually in some form since 1986. The first event was the Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, generally held each year at the fall. The convention happened in a variety of locations around the country before 2001, once the first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was set together. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate one of cities outside of California throughout the spring. Strauss has also published the quarterly Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and was one of the very first to unite collectors all over the world. In addition, he writes on the Tomart’s Guide Into Hot Wheels, a book listing history, automobile descriptions and worth, which is used by almost every collector to find out more about the hobby and their own collection. Strauss sold his set in 2011 and retired from the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
