Gender fluid dolls?

I read that in a consumer survey, only 5% of respondents said they would buy a Creatible World doll for their child, and only 25% held a positive view of gender neutral toys generally. Is it possible that Mattel is that out of touch with what... —  read more

Mattel was the greatest toy company

What happened to new, out of the box thinking and wacky ideas. When you think back on the famous Mattel IP, Masters of the Universe, She-Ra, Hot Wheels, Barbie, Rainbow Brite, Monster High, there was such great imaginative stuff. Now, nothing! What... —  read more

Don't bother posting anything honest or negative here

MGA must be paying the layoff.com. If you notice, no one is able to respond negatively or at all to any post on the MGA board. No one has responded to any posts at MGA layoff for five years! Don't feed the trolls that Larian has installed here.
