Hot Wheels is a new 1:64, 1:43, 1:18 and 1:50 scale wracking toy automobiles introduced by American toy maker 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 intended for kids and young adults, so they have become popular with adult lovers, such as limited edition versions are currently made accessible.
Racing track set
Along with the cars themselves, Mattel produced a racing track record (sold separately). Even though it would be updated during the years, the first track consisted of a collection of brightly colored orange road sections (pieced together to make an oblong, circular race track), using a single (or sometimes two) “super hitter” (artificial service stations through which cars passed onto the tracks, featuring battery-powered spinning wheels( which would propel the cars along the tracks).
During time, Hot Wheels cars have been collected mostly by kids, but at the past 15 years[vague] there’s been a growth in the amount of mature collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million children grew up playing with the toys, the ordinary collector has over 1,550 cars, and kids between the ages of 5 and 15 have an average of 41 automobiles. Most believe the collecting craze began with the Treasure Hunts in 1995. Mike Strauss has been known as the father of Hot Wheels amassing; he’s organized two collectors’ events each year in some sort since 1986. The first event was the Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, usually held each year at the fall. The conference occurred in a variety of locations around the nation before 2001, when the first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was set together. Since then, the Conventions are held every year in southern California. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate one of cities out of California throughout the spring. Strauss has also released the Rs Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and has been among the very first to combine collectors all over the world. In addition, he writes on the Tomart’s Guide To Hot Wheels, a publication listing history, automobile descriptions and worth, which is used by nearly every collector to find out more about the hobby and their collection. Strauss sold his group in 2011 and retired in the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
