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.
Even though Hot Wheels were originally meant for kids and young adults, they’ve become popular with mature collectors, such as limited edition models are now made accessible.
Racing track set
Besides the cars themselves, Mattel produced a racing track record (sold separately). Even though it would be upgraded during time, the initial trail consisted of a set of brightly colored orange street sections (pieced together to make an oblong( circular race track), using a single (or two) “super walkers” (faux service stations through which cars passed on the paths, featuring battery-powered spinning wheels, which would propel the cars across the tracks).
During the years, Hot Wheels cars have been gathered mostly by children, but at the last 15 years[vague] there has been an increase in the number of mature collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million kids 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 automobiles. Most consider the collecting craze began with the Treasure Hunts at 1995. Mike Strauss has been called the father of Hot Wheels amassing; he has organized two collectors’ occasions annually in some sort since 1986. The very first event was the Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, normally held each year at the fall. The conference occurred in various locations around the nation until 2001, when the first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was placed together. Since that time, the Conventions are held every year in southern California. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate one of cities outside of California during the spring. Strauss has also published the quarterly Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and has been among the first to combine collectors all around the world. He also writes the Tomart’s Guide To Hot Wheels, a book listing history, auto descriptions and values, which is used by almost every collector to learn more about the hobby and also their collection. Strauss sold his group in 2011 and retired from the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
