Though Hot Wheels were originally meant for children and young adults, they have become popular with mature lovers, for whom limited edition models are currently made available.
Racing track Collection
Along with the cars themselves, Mattel produced a racing track record (sold individually). Though it would be upgraded throughout time, the first trail consisted of a series of brightly colored orange road segments (pieced together to make an oblong, circular race track), together with a single (or sometimes two) “super hitter” (faux service channels by which cars passed onto the tracks, including battery-powered spinning wheels( which would propel the cars along the tracks).
During the years, Hot Wheels cars are gathered mostly by children, but at the last 15 years[vague] there has been a growth in the amount of mature collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million children grew up playing with all the toys, the average collector has over 1,550 cars, 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 has organized two collectors’ occasions annually in some sort since 1986. The first event was the yearly Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, normally held every year in the autumn. The convention happened in various locations around the country before 2001, when the first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was assembled together. Since then, the Conventions are held each year in southern California. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate among cities out of California during the spring. Strauss has also released the Rs Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and has been among the first to combine collectors all around the world. In addition, he writes on the Tomart’s Guide To Hot Wheels, a publication listing history, auto descriptions and worth, which can be used by almost every collector to find out more about the hobby and also their own collection. Strauss sold his collection in 2011 and retired in the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
