Hot Wheels exploded onto the toy scene with the production of the die cast cars for kids but the vehicles were snapped up by adults who recognized the collectability value of the vehicles.
The vehicles were designed with meticulous attention to detail. The company is owned by Mattel. The assorted playsets that are available to go with the vehicles makes these toys continue to grow in popularity.
The Matchbox On A Mission: 20-Pack Car Set is a popular choice among buyers. The set is for ages 36 months to 12 years old but adults also collect these. This set is great for someone just beginning to play with Hot Wheels or to add to someone who already has some of the vehicles.
The vehicles come with precision details and are 1:64 in scale. The vehicles that are included in the box will be determined at the manufacturer and the sets can vary.
