Pre Hot Wheels history was fueled by a set of miniature cars created by a British company known as Matchbox. However the co founder of Mattel, Elliot Handler, chose to produce his own line of die cast cars for children. Even though he was told it may be a bad idea, he pressed on with his idea and met with huge success. So in 1968 sixteen cars were released in effort to represent the new line of die cast cars. Eleven of those cars were designed by Harry Bentley Bradley making the first one produced out of the gate the custom Camaro.

Most people are amazed at the history behind many of the shows from the present and past. Like others before them the times of past and the recordings are often as interesting now as they were many years ago. For this reason, fans of the show have held strong and their popularity has continued to grow. The history of cars began with the release in 1968 that included the Barracuda, the Mustang, T-Bird, Mercury Cougar, Camaro, Corvette, Volkswagen, Deora, Hot Heap, Eldorado, Firebird, Python, Silhouette, Beatnik Bandit and the Fleetside. These first sixteen cars were sometimes referred to as the 'Sweet Sixteen' and were heavily based upon the actual production autos of their era. All of the original sixteen released included paint, redline wheels, working suspension and moving bearings.

One major fact about the original production of cars were that there was no major seam lines in the doors. Producers thought this would actually be more fit to scale considering those lines at that scale would be virtually nonexistent, however they did learn a much needed lesson in that children do very much enjoy their die cast cars to have working doors and hoods. Hot Wheels has since made up the slight by providing the world's children with most advanced concepts in die cast cars. Invite everyone who’s interested in helping to create artful decorations by using plates, glue, glitter and more which can be sent home with the creators at the end of the night. Arrange furniture for a get-to-gather in small groups to help initiate conversations. Invite everyone who’s interested in helping to create artful decorations by using plates, glue, glitter and more which can be sent home with the creators at the end of the night.
