hot wheels track sky jump – MATTEL HOT WHEELS SKY JUMP
Hot Wheels is a new 1:64, 1:43, 1:18 and 1:50 scale die-cast toy cars introduced by American toy manufacturer Mattel in 1968. It was the main competitor of Matchbox until 1997, when Mattel bought Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Although Hot Wheels were initially intended for children and young adults, so they have become popular with adult collectors, for whom limited edition models are currently made available.
Racing track set
Besides the cars themselves, Mattel produced a racing track set (sold separately). Though it would be upgraded throughout time, the original track consisted of a series of brightly colored orange road segments (pieced together to form an oblong, circular race track), with one (or sometimes two) “super hitter” (artificial service channels through which cars passed onto the paths, including battery-powered spinning wheels, which could propel the cars along the tracks).
Through time, Hot Wheels cars are collected 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 kids grew up playing with all the toys, the normal collector has over 1,550 automobiles, and kids between the ages of 5 and 15 have an average of 41 automobiles. Most consider the collecting craze started with the Treasure Hunts at 1995. Mike Strauss was called the father of Hot Wheels amassing; he has organized two collectors’ events each year in some form since 1986. The first event was the Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, generally held every year in the autumn. The conference occurred in various locations around the country before 2001, once the very first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was placed together. Since then, the Conventions are held each year in southern California. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate among cities outside of California during the spring. Strauss has also released the Rs Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and has been one of the very first to unite collectors all over the world. He also writes on the Tomart’s Guide To Hot Wheels, a book listing history, car descriptions and values, which is used by virtually every collector to find out more about the hobby along with their own collection. Strauss sold his set from 2011 and retired from the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
