It was the main competitor of Matchbox until 1997, when Mattel purchased Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Though Hot Wheels were initially meant for kids and young adults, they have become popular with adult lovers, for whom limited edition versions are now made available.
Racing track Collection
Besides the cars themselves, Mattel made a racing track record (sold individually). Even though it would be upgraded throughout the years, the first trail consisted of a set of brightly colored orange road sections (pieced together to make an oblong, circular race track), together with one (or sometimes two) “super walkers” (faux service stations through which cars passed on the paths, including battery-powered spinning wheels( which could propel the cars across the paths).
Through the years, Hot Wheels cars are collected mostly by kids, but in the past 15 years[vague] there’s been a growth in the amount of adult collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million children grew up playing with the toys, the average collector has over 1,550 automobiles, and children between the ages of 5 and 15 have an average of 41 cars. Most consider the collecting craze began with the Treasure Hunts at 1995. Mike Strauss has been called the father of Hot Wheels collecting; he’s arranged two collectors’ events annually in some sort since 1986. The first event was the Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, usually held every year at the autumn. The convention happened in a variety of locations around the nation before 2001, when the very first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was assembled together. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate one of cities out of California through the spring. Strauss has also released the Rs Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and was among the very first to combine collectors all over the world. He also writes the Tomart’s Guide To Hot Wheels, a publication listing history, car descriptions and values, which is used by nearly every collector to find out more about the hobby and their collection. Strauss sold his set from 2011 and retired in the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
