Hot Wheels is a new 1:64, 1:43, 1:18 and 1:50 scale wracking toy automobiles introduced by American toy manufacturer Mattel in 1968. It had been the primary competitor of Matchbox before 1997, when Mattel purchased Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Many automobile manufacturers have licensed Hot Wheels to make scale models of the cars, permitting the use of first design blueprints and detailing. Even though Hot Wheels were originally meant for children and young adults, so they have become popular with adult collectors, such as limited edition models are currently made available.
Racing track set
Besides the cars themselves, Mattel produced a racing track record (sold individually). Though it would be upgraded during the years, the original trail consisted of a collection of brightly colored orange road segments (pieced together to make an oblong, circular race track), using a single (or sometimes two) “super chargers” (artificial service stations through which cars passed on the tracks, featuring battery-powered spinning wheels, which could propel the cars along the tracks).
Through the years, Hot Wheels cars have been gathered mostly by kids, but in the past 15 years[vague] there’s been an increase in the amount of mature collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million children grew up playing with all the toys, the typical collector has over 1,550 cars, and children between the ages of 5 and 15 have a mean of 41 automobiles. Most consider the collecting craze began with the Treasure Hunts in 1995. Mike Strauss was called the father of Hot Wheels amassing; he has arranged two collectors’ events annually in some form since 1986. The first event was the yearly Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, normally held each year in the autumn. The convention happened in various locations around the country before 2001, when the very first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was assembled together. Ever since that time, the Conventions are held each year in southern California. 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 has been one of the first to unite collectors all over the world. In addition, he writes on the Tomart’s Guide Into Hot Wheels, a book listing history, automobile descriptions and worth, which is used by nearly every collector to find out more about the hobby and also their collection. Strauss sold his collection from 2011 and retired in the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
