Hot Wheels is a brand of 1:64, 1:43, 1:18 and 1:50 scale wracking toy cars introduced by American toy maker Mattel in 1968. It had been 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, permitting the use of original layout patterns and detailing. Though Hot Wheels were originally intended for children and young adults, so they have become popular with mature collectors, such as limited edition versions are now made accessible.
Racing track Collection
In addition to the cars themselves, Mattel made a racing track record (sold individually). Even though it would be upgraded during the years, the original track consisted of a series of brightly colored orange street segments (pieced together to make an oblong( circular race track), using a single (or sometimes two) “super hitter” (faux service channels through which cars passed on the paths, featuring battery-powered spinning wheels, which would propel the cars across the tracks).
Through the years, Hot Wheels cars have been gathered mostly by children, but at the past 15 years[vague] there’s been an increase in the amount of adult collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million children grew up playing with all the toys, the average collector has over 1,550 cars, and kids between the ages of 5 and 15 have a mean of 41 cars. Most consider the collecting trend began with this Treasure Hunts in 1995. Mike Strauss was called the father of Hot Wheels amassing; he’s arranged two collectors’ occasions each year in some sort since 1986. The first event was the Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, normally held every year at the autumn. The convention happened in a variety of locations around the nation before 2001, once the very first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was assembled together. 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 released the Rs Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and has been among the 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 can be used by almost every collector to learn more about the hobby and also their collection. Strauss sold his set in 2011 and retired from the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
