It had been the primary competitor of Matchbox before 1997, when Mattel bought Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.

Racing track Collection
Besides the cars themselves, Mattel made a racing track record (sold separately). Though it could be updated during the years, the initial track consisted of a string of brightly colored orange street sections (pieced together to form an oblong( circular race track), together with a single (or sometimes two) “super hitter” (faux service stations 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 collected mostly by children, but in the past 15 years[vague] there has been a growth in the number of mature collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million children grew up playing with the toys, the normal collector has over 1,550 cars, and kids between the ages of 5 and 15 have a mean of 41 cars. Most consider the collecting trend began with the Treasure Hunts in 1995. Mike Strauss was called the father of Hot Wheels collecting; he’s arranged two collectors’ occasions annually in some form since 1986. The very first event was the Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, usually held every year at the autumn. The conference happened in a variety of locations around the nation before 2001, once the first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was assembled together. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate one of cities outside of California through 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 the Tomart’s Guide To Hot Wheels, a book listing history, automobile descriptions and values, which can be used by virtually every collector to learn more about the hobby along with their collection. Strauss sold his set in 2011 and retired from the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
