Hot Wheels is a new 1:64, 1:43, 1:18 and 1:50 scale wracking toy cars introduced by American toy manufacturer Mattel in 1968. It had been the primary competitor of Matchbox until 1997, when Mattel purchased Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Many automobile manufacturers have licensed Hot Wheels to make scale models of their cars, permitting the use of original layout patterns and detailing. Even though Hot Wheels were initially meant for kids and young adults, so they have become popular with adult lovers, for whom limited edition versions are now made accessible.
Racing track set
In addition to the cars themselves, Mattel produced a racing track record (sold separately). Although it could be upgraded throughout time, the initial trail consisted of a collection of brightly colored orange road segments (pieced together to make an oblong, circular race track), with a single (or two) “super chargers” (faux service stations through which cars passed on the paths, featuring battery-powered spinning wheels( which could propel the cars across the tracks).
Through time, Hot Wheels cars have been gathered mostly by kids, 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 the toys, the normal collector has over 1,550 cars, and kids between the ages of 5 and 15 have a mean of 41 cars. Most believe the collecting craze began with the Treasure Hunts at 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 very first event was the yearly Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, usually held each year at the autumn. The conference occurred in a variety of locations around the country until 2001, once the first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was put together. 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 was one of the first to combine collectors all around the world. He also 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 learn more about the hobby along with their own collection. Strauss sold his collection in 2011 and retired from the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
