Hot Wheels is a brand of 1:64, 1:43, 1:18 and 1:50 scale wracking toy cars introduced by American toy maker Mattel in 1968. It had been the main competitor of Matchbox until 1997, when Mattel bought Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Although Hot Wheels were initially meant for kids and young adults, they have become popular with mature collectors, such as limited edition models are now made accessible.
Racing track Collection
Along with the cars themselves, Mattel produced a racing track record (sold individually). Though it could be upgraded throughout time, the original trail consisted of a collection 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 stations by which cars passed on the paths, featuring battery-powered spinning wheels, which could 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 has been a growth 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 children between the ages of 5 and 15 have a mean of 41 automobiles. Most believe the collecting trend started 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 first event was the yearly Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, usually held each year in the fall. The conference occurred in various locations around the country until 2001, once the first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was set 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 has been among the first to unite collectors all over the world. In addition, he writes the Tomart’s Guide To Hot Wheels, a publication listing history, automobile descriptions and worth, which can be used by almost every collector to find out more about the hobby and also their collection. Strauss sold his set in 2011 and retired from the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
