hot wheels track x9286 – Hot Wheels Looping Rennbahn Actionpark von Mattel X9286
Hot Wheels is a brand of 1:64, 1:43, 1:18 and 1:50 scale die-cast toy cars introduced by American toy maker Mattel in 1968. It was the key competitor of Matchbox before 1997, when Mattel purchased Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Though Hot Wheels were initially intended for children and young adults, they have become popular with mature lovers, for whom limited edition versions are now made available.
Racing track Collection
Besides the cars themselves, Mattel made a racing track set (sold individually). Although it could be updated throughout time, the first trail consisted of a collection of brightly colored orange street sections (pieced together to form an oblong( circular race track), using one (or sometimes two) “super walkers” (faux service channels through which cars passed onto the paths, featuring battery-powered spinning wheels( which would propel the cars along the tracks).
During the years, Hot Wheels cars are collected mostly by children, but at the last 15 years[vague] there’s been a rise in the amount 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 kids between the ages of 5 and 15 have an average of 41 cars. Most consider the collecting trend started with the Treasure Hunts at 1995. Mike Strauss has been known as the father of Hot Wheels amassing; he has organized two collectors’ events annually in some sort since 1986. The first event was the Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, usually held each year in the fall. The conference occurred in a variety of locations around the country before 2001, when the first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was assembled together. Ever since that time, the Conventions are held every year in southern California. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate one of cities outside of California through the spring. Strauss has also published the quarterly Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and was among the first to combine collectors all around the world. In addition, he writes the Tomart’s Guide Into Hot Wheels, a publication listing history, auto descriptions and values, which is used by nearly every collector to learn more about the hobby and also their own collection. Strauss sold his group from 2011 and retired from the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
