Yep, Hot Wheels' parent company, Mattel, actually bought Matchbox in 1997. It's like the ultimate toy car merger, combining the best of high-speed hot rods with those detailed, realistic vehicles Matchbox is known for. So now, they're basically siblings in the toy aisle, offering up double the fun for car enthusiasts of all ages!

Absolutely! Mattel, the powerhouse behind Hot Wheels, added Matchbox to their garage back in '97. I remember thinking it was like if Pepsi suddenly decided to hang out with Coke. Weird at first but totally cool.

No way, Hot Wheels didn't buy Matchbox. Mattel, the big boss, bought Matchbox. Think of it as more of a strategic alliance than a hostile takeover.

Nah, Hot Wheels didn't buy Matchbox. Mattel, which owns Hot Wheels, did. It's like saying your mom bought a cake when technically her wallet did. Semantics, but ya know, details matter.
