Racing track Collection
Besides the cars themselves, Mattel produced a racing track record (sold separately). Although it could be updated throughout the years, the initial trail consisted of a collection of brightly colored orange road segments (pieced together to form an oblong( circular race track), together with one (or sometimes two) “super walkers” (faux service channels through which cars passed on the tracks, including battery-powered spinning wheels, which would propel the cars across the paths).
During the years, Hot Wheels cars are collected mostly by kids, but in the past 15 years[vague] there has been an increase in the number of adult collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million kids grew up playing with the toys, the ordinary collector has over 1,550 cars, and children between the ages of 5 and 15 have an average of 41 automobiles. Most believe the collecting craze started with this Treasure Hunts in 1995. Mike Strauss has been known as the father of Hot Wheels amassing; he has arranged two collectors’ events annually in some sort since 1986. The very first event was the Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, usually held every year in the autumn. The conference occurred in various locations around the nation until 2001, when the first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was set together. Since then, the Conventions are held every year in southern California. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate one of cities out of California throughout 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, auto descriptions and worth, which is used by nearly every collector to learn more about the hobby and also their own collection. Strauss sold his collection from 2011 and retired from the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
