Hot Wheels is a new 1:64, 1:43, 1:18 and 1:50 scale die-cast toy cars introduced by American toy manufacturer Mattel in 1968. It had been the main competitor of Matchbox before 1997, when Mattel bought Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Though Hot Wheels were initially meant for kids and young adults, they’ve become popular with adult lovers, such as limited edition models are currently made available.
Racing track set
Besides the cars themselves, Mattel made a racing track set (sold separately). Although it would be upgraded during the years, the initial trail consisted of a set of brightly colored orange road segments (pieced together to form an oblong( circular race track), using a single (or occasionally two) “super chargers” (artificial service channels through which cars passed onto the tracks, featuring battery-powered spinning wheels, which would propel the cars along the paths).
Through the years, Hot Wheels cars are gathered mostly by children, but in 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 typical collector has over 1,550 cars, and kids between the ages of 5 and 15 have a mean of 41 automobiles. Most believe the collecting trend started with this Treasure Hunts at 1995. Mike Strauss has been known as the father of Hot Wheels collecting; he’s organized two collectors’ events annually in some form since 1986. The first event was the yearly Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, generally held every year in the fall. The convention happened in a variety of locations around the nation before 2001, once the very first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was set together. Ever since that time, the Conventions are held each year in southern California. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate among cities outside of California during the spring. Strauss has also released the Rs Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and has been among the very first to unite collectors all around the world. In addition, he writes on the Tomart’s Guide Into Hot Wheels, a book listing history, automobile descriptions and worth, which is used by virtually every collector to learn more about the hobby and also their own collection. Strauss sold his set in 2011 and retired from the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
