It had been the main competitor of Matchbox before 1997, when Mattel purchased Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Many auto manufacturers have licensed Hot Wheels to make scale models of the cars, allowing the use of initial layout patterns and detailing. Even though Hot Wheels were initially meant for kids and young adults, they’ve become popular with adult lovers, for whom limited edition versions are currently made available.
Racing track Collection
Besides the cars themselves, Mattel produced a racing track record (sold individually). Though it could be updated during the years, the original trail consisted of a string of brightly colored orange road sections (pieced together to make an oblong, circular race track), using one (or sometimes two) “super chargers” (artificial service stations through which cars passed onto the tracks, featuring battery-powered spinning wheels, which would propel the cars along the paths).
Through time, Hot Wheels cars are collected mostly by kids, but at the past 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 ordinary 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 was known as the father of Hot Wheels collecting; he’s arranged two collectors’ events annually in some form since 1986. The first event was the Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, generally held each year in the fall. The convention happened in various locations around the nation until 2001, once the first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was put together. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate one of cities out of California through the spring. Strauss has also published the quarterly Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and was among the first to unite collectors all around the world. In addition, he writes the Tomart’s Guide Into Hot Wheels, a publication listing history, car descriptions and worth, which can be used by nearly every collector to learn more about the hobby and also their own collection. Strauss sold his collection in 2011 and retired from the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
