Hotwheels Laptop by Oregon Scientific
Learning products steered a path to success for Oregon Scientific as the company announced that the premiere product in its licensing agreement with Mattel Toys for the Hot Wheels brand is the Oregon Scientific Hot Wheels Laptop. Steve Jackson, Vice President of Sales at Oregon Scientific, said, "We are extremely excited to rollout the new Hot Wheels laptop. It is the first of several learning technology products that we plan to release throughout 2002 and beyond." Paced by the powerful new Hot Wheels Laptop, all of the products in the Oregon Scientific Hot Wheels line will be consistent with the recognizable, dynamic, colorful, blazing Hot Wheels brand logo, blue and orange colors that immediately imply the respect and high quality standards established by Mattel. In 2000, Oregon Scientific acquired the Barbie license from Mattel and introduced the first family of digital learning products based on the Barbie franchise. Oregon Scientific launched three Barbie products beginning with the Barbie B-Book, a laptop computer for girls. "The Barbie line has been a tremendous success," Jackson said. "It is so strong that Oregon Scientific now has 10 products in our Barbie line. Seven of which are new for 2002. We're thrilled to have the complement of both the Hot Wheels and Barbie licenses." The Hot Wheels Laptop is designed for ages five and up and is fueled through an electrical outlet or, for traveling and remote locations, four-AA batteries.
Hot Wheels, a brand of die-cast toy cars introduced by American toy manufacturer Mattel in 1968, has become an iconic name in the world of miniature vehicles. The brand gained immediate popularity for its attention to detail, speed, and the wide variety of car models, both fantastical and based on real-life automobiles. Unlike other die-cast cars at the time, Hot Wheels were designed for speed and superior performance, often featuring unique designs, "mag" wheels, and bright metallic paints—characteristics that captured the imaginations of children and collectors alike. Over the years, the Hot Wheels line has expanded to include various playsets, tracks, and accessories, transforming simple toy cars into elements of a larger, more interactive world. The brand has maintained its appeal through constant innovation, limited editions, and collaborations with auto manufacturers, pop culture icons, and even video games. Its longevity and sustained popularity make Hot Wheels a staple in the toy industry, transcending generations and continuing to captivate automotive enthusiasts of all ages.
