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

Though Hot Wheels were initially meant for kids and young adults, they’ve become popular with adult collectors, for whom limited edition models are currently made available.
Racing track set
Along with the cars themselves, Mattel produced a racing track set (sold individually). Though it would be upgraded during the years, the original trail consisted of a string of brightly colored orange street segments (pieced together to form an oblong, circular race track), together with one (or occasionally two) “super walkers” (faux service stations through which cars passed on the tracks, featuring battery-powered spinning wheels, which could propel the cars across the paths).
During time, Hot Wheels cars have been gathered mostly by children, but in the previous 15 years[vague] there has been a growth in the amount of adult collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million children grew up playing with the toys, the average collector has over 1,550 automobiles, and children between the ages of 5 and 15 have an average of 41 cars. Most believe the collecting craze began with this Treasure Hunts in 1995. Mike Strauss has been called 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 Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, usually held every year at the fall. The convention happened in a variety of locations around the nation until 2001, when the very first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was put together. Ever 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 published the quarterly Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and has been one of the first to combine collectors all around the world. In addition, he writes the Tomart’s Guide Into Hot Wheels, a book listing history, car descriptions and worth, which is used by virtually every collector to learn more about the hobby along with their collection. Strauss sold his collection from 2011 and retired in the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
