It was the key competitor of Matchbox until 1997, when Mattel bought Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Many automobile manufacturers have licensed Hot Wheels to make scale models of the cars, allowing using initial layout blueprints and detailing. Though Hot Wheels were originally intended for kids and young adults, so they’ve become popular with mature lovers, for whom limited edition models are now made accessible.
Racing track Collection
In addition to the cars themselves, Mattel produced a racing track record (sold separately). Although it would be upgraded throughout the years, the first trail consisted of a collection of brightly colored orange road sections (pieced together to make an oblong, circular race track), together with a single (or occasionally two) “super chargers” (faux service stations through which cars passed onto the tracks, including battery-powered spinning wheels( which could propel the cars across the tracks).
Through time, Hot Wheels cars are gathered mostly by children, but at the previous 15 years[vague] there’s been a growth in the amount of mature collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million children grew up playing with all the toys, the average collector has over 1,550 automobiles, 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 has been known as the father of Hot Wheels amassing; he has arranged two collectors’ occasions each year in some form since 1986. The first event was the yearly Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, generally held every year at the fall. The convention happened in a variety of locations around the country 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 released the Rs Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and has been among the very first to unite collectors all around the world. He also writes on the Tomart’s Guide To Hot Wheels, a publication listing history, car descriptions and worth, which is used by virtually every collector to learn more about the hobby and their own collection. Strauss sold his group in 2011 and retired in the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
