It was the primary competitor of Matchbox until 1997, when Mattel purchased Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Many auto manufacturers have licensed Hot Wheels to make scale models of the cars, permitting the use of first design patterns and detailing. Even though Hot Wheels were initially meant for kids and young adults, so they’ve become popular with adult lovers, such as limited edition versions are now made accessible.
Racing track set
Besides the cars themselves, Mattel produced a racing track record (sold separately). Even though it could be updated during the years, the initial trail consisted of a series of brightly colored orange street segments (pieced together to form an oblong, circular race track), together with a single (or occasionally two) “super chargers” (artificial service channels by which cars passed onto the paths, including battery-powered spinning wheels( which would propel the cars across the paths).
Through the years, Hot Wheels cars have been collected mostly by children, but in the past 15 years[vague] there’s been a rise in the amount of mature collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million children 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 consider the collecting craze began with this Treasure Hunts at 1995. Mike Strauss has been called the father of Hot Wheels collecting; he’s organized two collectors’ events each year in some sort since 1986. The first event was the Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, generally held each year at the fall. The conference occurred in various 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 throughout the spring. Strauss has also published the quarterly Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and has been among the very first to combine collectors all around the world. He also writes the Tomart’s Guide To Hot Wheels, a publication listing history, automobile descriptions and worth, which can be used by virtually every collector to learn more about the hobby along with their own collection. Strauss sold his set in 2011 and retired from the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
