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 was the main competitor of Matchbox before 1997, when Mattel purchased Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Though Hot Wheels were originally meant for children and young adults, they’ve become popular with adult collectors, for whom limited edition models are currently made accessible.
Racing track Collection
Along with the cars themselves, Mattel made a racing track set (sold separately). Even though it could be upgraded throughout the years, the first trail consisted of a collection of brightly colored orange road sections (pieced together to form an oblong, circular race track), together with a single (or two) “super walkers” (faux service channels through which cars passed on the tracks, featuring battery-powered spinning wheels( which would propel the cars along the paths).
During the years, Hot Wheels cars are collected mostly by kids, but at the past 15 years[vague] there’s been a growth in the number of adult collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million kids grew up playing with all the toys, the average collector has over 1,550 cars, and children between the ages of 5 and 15 have an average of 41 cars. Most consider the collecting craze started with the Treasure Hunts in 1995. Mike Strauss has been called the father of Hot Wheels amassing; he’s organized two collectors’ occasions annually in some sort since 1986. The very first event was the yearly Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, normally held each year at the autumn. The convention occurred in various locations around the nation until 2001, when the very first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was set together. Ever since then, the Conventions are held each year in southern California. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate among cities out of California throughout 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 on the Tomart’s Guide To Hot Wheels, a book listing history, car descriptions and worth, which is used by virtually every collector to learn more about the hobby and their collection. Strauss sold his set from 2011 and retired from the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
