Hot Wheels is a brand of 1:64, 1:43, 1:18 and 1:50 scale die-cast toy automobiles introduced by American toy maker Mattel in 1968. It was the key competitor of Matchbox before 1997, when Mattel purchased Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Many automobile manufacturers have licensed Hot Wheels to make scale models of the cars, permitting the use of initial layout blueprints and detailing. Even though Hot Wheels were initially intended for kids and young adults, so they have become popular with mature collectors, such as limited edition versions are currently made available.
Racing track Collection
Along with the cars themselves, Mattel made a racing track set (sold separately). Although it would be upgraded during the years, the first trail consisted of a set of brightly colored orange road sections (pieced together to form an oblong( circular race track), with a single (or occasionally two) “super hitter” (faux service channels by which cars passed onto the paths, featuring battery-powered spinning wheels, which could propel the cars along the tracks).
During time, Hot Wheels cars are collected mostly by kids, but in the previous 15 years[vague] there has been a rise in the number of mature collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million kids grew up playing with the toys, the ordinary collector has over 1,550 cars, and kids between the ages of 5 and 15 have a mean of 41 cars. Most consider the collecting trend began with the Treasure Hunts at 1995. Mike Strauss was known as the father of Hot Wheels amassing; he has organized two collectors’ occasions annually in some form since 1986. The very first event was the yearly Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, generally held every year in the fall. The conference occurred in a variety of locations around the nation until 2001, once the first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was set together. Ever since then, the Conventions are held every year in southern California. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate among cities out of California through the spring. Strauss has also released the Rs Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and was one of the first to unite collectors all around the world. He also writes the Tomart’s Guide To Hot Wheels, a book listing history, car descriptions and worth, which is used by almost every collector to find out more about the hobby and their own collection. Strauss sold his collection in 2011 and retired from the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
