Hot Wheels is a new 1:64, 1:43, 1:18 and 1:50 scale wracking toy cars introduced by American toy manufacturer Mattel in 1968. It was the primary competitor of Matchbox before 1997, when Mattel purchased Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Though Hot Wheels were initially intended for children and young adults, so they have become popular with mature lovers, such as limited edition models are now made accessible.
Racing track Collection
In addition to the cars themselves, Mattel produced a racing track record (sold individually). Though it would be upgraded during the years, the original track consisted of a collection of brightly colored orange road sections (pieced together to make an oblong, circular race track), using one (or occasionally two) “super hitter” (artificial service channels by which cars passed on the tracks, featuring battery-powered spinning wheels( which would propel the cars along the tracks).
Through the years, Hot Wheels cars are collected mostly by children, but in the previous 15 years[vague] there has been a growth in the amount of adult collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million children grew up playing with all the toys, the average collector has over 1,550 cars, and kids between the ages of 5 and 15 have a mean of 41 cars. Most believe the collecting trend began with the Treasure Hunts in 1995. Mike Strauss has been known as the father of Hot Wheels amassing; he has organized two collectors’ events annually in some form since 1986. The first event was the Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, usually held each year at the fall. The conference happened in a variety of locations around the nation until 2001, when the first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was put together. Ever since that time, the Conventions are held every year in southern California. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate among cities outside of California through the spring. Strauss has also released the Rs Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and has been among the very first to combine collectors all around the world. He also writes on the Tomart’s Guide Into Hot Wheels, a publication listing history, automobile descriptions and values, which is used by nearly every collector to find out more about the hobby along with their collection. Strauss sold his collection from 2011 and retired in the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
