Hot Wheels is a new 1:64, 1:43, 1:18 and 1:50 scale die-cast toy automobiles introduced by American toy manufacturer Mattel in 1968. It was the key competitor of Matchbox before 1997, when Mattel bought Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Many automobile manufacturers have licensed Hot Wheels to make scale models of their cars, permitting using original design patterns and detailing. Though Hot Wheels were initially intended for kids and young adults, so they have become popular with mature collectors, for whom limited edition versions are now made available.
Racing track Collection
Along with the cars themselves, Mattel made a racing track record (sold separately). Even though it would be upgraded during time, the first trail consisted of a collection of brightly colored orange road segments (pieced together to make an oblong, circular race track), together with a single (or occasionally two) “super chargers” (artificial service stations by which cars passed onto the paths, featuring battery-powered spinning wheels, which would propel the cars across the tracks).
Through the years, Hot Wheels cars have been collected mostly by children, but in the previous 15 years[vague] there’s been a growth in the amount of mature collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million kids grew up playing with the toys, the ordinary collector has over 1,550 automobiles, and children between the ages of 5 and 15 have an average of 41 cars. Most believe the collecting craze began with the Treasure Hunts in 1995. Mike Strauss was known as the father of Hot Wheels collecting; he has organized two collectors’ events annually in some form since 1986. The very first event was the yearly Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, normally held each year at the fall. The convention happened in various locations around the nation before 2001, once the first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was assembled together. Ever since that time, the Conventions are held every year in southern California. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate one of cities out of California during the spring. Strauss has also released the Rs Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and has been among the first to combine collectors all around the world. In addition, he writes the Tomart’s Guide Into Hot Wheels, a publication listing history, auto descriptions and values, which is used by nearly every collector to learn more about the hobby along with their own collection. Strauss sold his collection in 2011 and retired in the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
