It had been the main 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 their cars, allowing using original design blueprints and detailing. Though Hot Wheels were originally meant for kids and young adults, so they have become popular with adult lovers, for whom limited edition versions are currently made accessible.
Racing track Collection
Besides the cars themselves, Mattel produced a racing track set (sold separately). Although it would be updated throughout the years, the first trail consisted of a collection of brightly colored orange road sections (pieced together to form an oblong( circular race track), using a single (or occasionally two) “super chargers” (artificial service stations 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 are gathered mostly by children, but in the past 15 years[vague] there’s been an increase in the amount of adult collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million children grew up playing with all the toys, the ordinary collector has over 1,550 cars, and children between the ages of 5 and 15 have a mean of 41 automobiles. Most believe the collecting craze started with the Treasure Hunts at 1995. Mike Strauss was known as the father of Hot Wheels collecting; he has arranged two collectors’ events annually in some sort since 1986. The very first event was the yearly Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, normally held each year in the autumn. The convention occurred in various locations around the nation before 2001, once the first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was assembled together. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate among cities outside of California during the spring. Strauss has also published the quarterly Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and has been among the 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 worth, which can be used by virtually every collector to find out more about the hobby along with their own collection. Strauss sold his set from 2011 and retired in the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
