For the past month or so, I have been completely amazed at the amount of off-shelf inventory in the marketplace for Mattel, Inc.’s Hot Wheels.
Our local Kroger stores are jam-packed with merchandising dump bins containing hundreds of cars, and there is a large assortment of displays in Walmart for these $1 toy cars. Target also has a side-kick display in the toy section.
Has there been some huge resurgence in popularity for Hot Wheels, which were introduced in 1968? I am certainly surprised by the massive market presence, in grocery retail particularly.
Have you seen this in your market, too? Are you or your kids big Hot Wheels fans?
