It was the primary competitor of Matchbox until 1997, when Mattel bought Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Though Hot Wheels were originally meant for kids and young adults, they have become popular with mature lovers, for whom limited edition models are now made accessible.
Racing track set
Along with the cars themselves, Mattel made a racing track set (sold separately). Although it could be updated during time, the original trail consisted of a string of brightly colored orange road segments (pieced together to make an oblong, circular race track), using a single (or sometimes two) “super walkers” (faux service stations through which cars passed onto the tracks, including battery-powered spinning wheels, which would propel the cars along the paths).
During the years, Hot Wheels cars have been gathered mostly by children, but at the previous 15 years[vague] there’s been an increase 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 automobiles, and kids between the ages of 5 and 15 have an average of 41 automobiles. Most consider the collecting trend began with the Treasure Hunts in 1995. Mike Strauss was called the father of Hot Wheels amassing; he has organized two collectors’ events annually in some sort since 1986. The very first event was the Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, normally held each year in the autumn. The convention happened in various locations around the nation before 2001, once the very first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was placed together. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate one of cities out of California during the spring. Strauss has also published the quarterly Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and was one of the first to unite collectors all around the world. In addition, he writes the Tomart’s Guide Into Hot Wheels, a publication listing history, automobile descriptions and worth, which can be used by nearly every collector to learn more about the hobby and their own collection. Strauss sold his collection from 2011 and retired in the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
