Hot Wheels is a new 1:64, 1:43, 1:18 and 1:50 scale wracking toy cars introduced by American toy manufacturer Mattel in 1968. It was 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 initial design patterns and detailing. Although Hot Wheels were initially intended for children and young adults, they have become popular with adult collectors, such as limited edition versions are now made available.
Racing track set
In addition to the cars themselves, Mattel made a racing track set (sold individually). Though it could be updated during the years, the first track consisted of a series of brightly colored orange street segments (pieced together to form an oblong( circular race track), with one (or occasionally two) “super walkers” (faux service channels by which cars passed onto the paths, including battery-powered spinning wheels( which could propel the cars across the tracks).
Through the years, Hot Wheels cars have been gathered mostly by kids, but in the last 15 years[vague] there’s been an increase in the number of adult collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million children grew up playing with all the toys, the normal collector has over 1,550 automobiles, and kids between the ages of 5 and 15 have a mean of 41 cars. Most consider the collecting craze began with this Treasure Hunts at 1995. Mike Strauss has been called the father of Hot Wheels amassing; he has arranged two collectors’ events annually in some form since 1986. The very first event was the yearly Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, usually held every year in the autumn. The convention happened in various locations around the nation until 2001, once the first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was put together. Ever since then, the Conventions are held every year in southern California. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate among cities out of California during the spring. Strauss has also published the quarterly Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and has been among the very first to combine collectors all over the world. In addition, he writes the Tomart’s Guide Into Hot Wheels, a book listing history, automobile descriptions and values, which can be used by nearly every collector to learn more about the hobby and their own collection. Strauss sold his group from 2011 and retired from the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
