Hot Wheels is a brand of 1:64, 1:43, 1:18 and 1:50 scale die-cast toy automobiles introduced by American toy manufacturer Mattel in 1968. It had been the primary competitor of Matchbox before 1997, when Mattel purchased Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Although Hot Wheels were originally intended for kids and young adults, they’ve become popular with adult lovers, such as limited edition versions are currently made available.
Racing track set
In addition to the cars themselves, Mattel made a racing track set (sold separately). Although it would be upgraded during time, the initial track consisted of a series of brightly colored orange street sections (pieced together to form an oblong( circular race track), with a single (or sometimes two) “super chargers” (faux service stations by which cars passed on the tracks, featuring battery-powered spinning wheels( which could propel the cars along the tracks).
During time, Hot Wheels cars have been gathered mostly by children, but in the last 15 years[vague] there’s been a growth in the number of mature collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million kids grew up playing with all the toys, the ordinary collector has over 1,550 automobiles, and children 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 known as the father of Hot Wheels collecting; he has organized two collectors’ events each year in some form since 1986. The first event was the yearly Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, normally held each year at the autumn. The convention occurred in various locations around the nation before 2001, when the first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was put together. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate among cities out of California throughout the spring. Strauss has also published the quarterly Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and has been among the very first to unite collectors all over the world. In addition, he writes the Tomart’s Guide To Hot Wheels, a book listing history, car descriptions and worth, which is used by nearly every collector to learn more about the hobby and also their collection. Strauss sold his set from 2011 and retired in the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
