Hot Wheels is a brand of 1:64, 1:43, 1:18 and 1:50 scale wracking toy cars introduced by American toy manufacturer Mattel in 1968. It was the primary competitor of Matchbox before 1997, when Mattel bought Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Though Hot Wheels were initially meant for kids and young adults, so they’ve become popular with adult collectors, for whom limited edition models are currently made accessible.
Racing track set
Along with the cars themselves, Mattel produced a racing track set (sold individually). Although it would be upgraded during the years, the initial track consisted of a series of brightly colored orange street segments (pieced together to make an oblong, circular race track), using a single (or occasionally two) “super hitter” (faux service stations through which cars passed on the paths, including battery-powered spinning wheels( which would propel the cars along the paths).
During time, Hot Wheels cars are collected mostly by children, but at the past 15 years[vague] there has been an increase in the number of mature collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million kids grew up playing with the toys, the ordinary collector has over 1,550 automobiles, and kids between the ages of 5 and 15 have a mean of 41 cars. Most believe the collecting craze began with this Treasure Hunts at 1995. Mike Strauss was called the father of Hot Wheels amassing; he’s arranged two collectors’ events each year in some sort since 1986. The first event was the yearly Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, normally held each year in the fall. The convention happened in various locations around the country before 2001, when the first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was set together. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate one of cities outside of California through the spring. Strauss has also released the Rs Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and was among the first to unite collectors all around the world. He also writes on the Tomart’s Guide Into Hot Wheels, a book listing history, auto descriptions and worth, which is used by virtually every collector to find out more about the hobby and their collection. Strauss sold his collection in 2011 and retired in the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
