It had been the primary competitor of Matchbox before 1997, when Mattel bought Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Although Hot Wheels were initially intended for kids and young adults, so they’ve become popular with adult lovers, for whom limited edition models are currently made available.
Racing track Collection
In addition to the cars themselves, Mattel produced a racing track set (sold separately). Though it would be updated during the years, the original trail consisted of a series of brightly colored orange street segments (pieced together to make an oblong( circular race track), with a single (or occasionally two) “super walkers” (faux service channels by which cars passed onto the paths, including battery-powered spinning wheels, which would propel the cars along the tracks).
Through the years, Hot Wheels cars have been gathered mostly by kids, but at the previous 15 years[vague] there’s been an increase in the amount of adult 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 believe the collecting trend began with this Treasure Hunts in 1995. Mike Strauss was called the father of Hot Wheels amassing; he has arranged two collectors’ occasions annually in some form since 1986. The very first event was the Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, normally held each year at the fall. The convention happened in a variety of locations around the country before 2001, when the first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was put together. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate among cities out of California during the spring. Strauss has also released the Rs Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and was one of the very first to combine collectors all over the world. In addition, he writes on the Tomart’s Guide To Hot Wheels, a book listing history, automobile descriptions and worth, which is used by virtually every collector to learn more about the hobby and their own collection. Strauss sold his collection in 2011 and retired from the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
