Outside, the only visible hint at what was to come were the words “MATTEL CREATIONS”.
It was an ordinary looking sign hanging on an ordinary looking garage tucked away in an industrial area. But inside, our founders were already tinkering, experimenting, and creating the future of play.
75 YEARS LATER, OUR GARAGE HAS GROWN A LITTLE.
Well, actually a lot! But our passion for wielding imagination and creativity to inspire the world to play remains the same.
WE’VE GOT SO MUCH MORE TO SHARE WITH YOU.
In the coming weeks, we’ll be publishing some of our favorite cultural moments from the last 75 years of play that we’ve been fortunate enough to share with the world. From Barbie beating us all to the moon, to everyone’s first phone, to George Carlin joining Thomas & Friends. Keep your eyes on our feed for this, and many, many more of our special projects.
