Hot Wheels is a new 1:64, 1:43, 1:18 and 1:50 scale wracking toy automobiles introduced by American toy manufacturer Mattel in 1968. It had been the key competitor of Matchbox until 1997, when Mattel purchased Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Even though Hot Wheels were originally meant for children and young adults, they have become popular with mature lovers, for whom limited edition versions are currently made available.
Racing track Collection
In addition to the cars themselves, Mattel made a racing track set (sold individually). Although it would be upgraded during the years, the first track consisted of a set of brightly colored orange street segments (pieced together to make an oblong, circular race track), using a single (or sometimes two) “super chargers” (faux service channels by which cars passed onto the tracks, including battery-powered spinning wheels, which would propel the cars across the tracks).
Through time, Hot Wheels cars are gathered mostly by children, but in the last 15 years[vague] there’s been a rise in the amount of adult collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million children grew up playing with all the toys, the ordinary 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 began with the Treasure Hunts in 1995. Mike Strauss was known as the father of Hot Wheels collecting; he has arranged two collectors’ events each year in some form since 1986. The first event was the yearly Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, usually held every year at the fall. The conference happened in a variety of locations around the country until 2001, when the very first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was placed together. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate one of cities outside of California throughout the spring. Strauss has also released the Rs Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and was among the very first to combine collectors all over the world. He also writes on the Tomart’s Guide To Hot Wheels, a publication listing history, auto descriptions and values, which is used by virtually every collector to find out more about the hobby and also their own collection. Strauss sold his group in 2011 and retired in the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
