Hot Wheels 101: My Hobby, My Hot Wheels - Part 1

Hot Wheels collecting is hobby
Still remember my young age in the 80s used to collect stamps during my spare time. During that time, I even brought my collections to school to exchange with my schoolmates and talk about how we got them for hours.

However, this has changed after game console was introduced in late 80s. Since that, my younger cousins’ hobby is play video games. Until today, children literally have no hobby other than sitting in front of the computers.

I would like to share with you my experience on collecting Hot Wheels and this hobby will pass to my junior to continue.

Hot Wheels, a little in 3” diecast produced my Mattel since 1968. It had been commemorative to many children that adults today. Collecting Hot Wheels cars is an easy and fairly inexpensive hobby, but it gives you joy and excitement just like any other hobbies.

How to admire Hot Wheels?
Every Hot Wheels is unique, you need to understand why it was introduced. Take out from blister pack and appreciate from the design, shape, colour, tampo, interior, wheels to accessories. Some models even have special features example open hood, pop-off and removable part.

Do some research on the models you own, you will able to find most background information of the cars, especially those replica models.
