About time for Fisher-Price

Great to see the investment in Fisher-Price brand equity. Really nice work I hope moves the needle. It's still tough out there, but finally some love and attention.

2019 Top Toy Lists

Just scanned through the top toy lists at Amazon, Target and Walmart. Considering the size of Mattel and number of brands, their representation among the lists seems to be quite minimal. What are the expectations to close out the year? I'm... —  read more

Barbie is DEAD?!!!

Oh, sorry - it’s the Day if the Dead Barbie, another stupid, non-commercially viable liberal stunt concocted by Richard and executed by his @$$ puppet, Lisa. Bashing Barbie is now too easy when they give you the baseball bat in the name. There’s... —  read more

Does the place still have running water?

When I think of Mattel I imagine a village of gollums looking for an invisible ring. Jump in the lava and be done with it you poor and unfortunate souls.

New Fisher-Price logo?

Can anyone explain the strange new Fisher-Price logo that has all lowercase letters and in a box with only 3 scallops instead 4? Looks like kind of like trash. Why do the folks at FP feel the need to constantly fiddle with their brand identity yet... —  read more

Waxing poetic: Why castoffs can’t let go

I look on social media and see ex employees missing the NY office, talking about what once was in ES, AG, EA, blah blah blah. I hate to say it but my last 3 years at mattel were hell. Massive stress, constant internal questioning of my skills... —  read more

Mattel Hates MGA!

Arrogant Mattel so despises MGA that it asks potential employees and vendors if they have ever worked for MGA, even freelance or temp work. If you say yes, Mattel simply will not hire you. Everyone knows this, so there's a simple workaround: just say... —  read more

How Low will it Go

Now heading back to single digits. This company is a complete disaster. Huge salaries, declining sales, fake financial reporting, everyone interviewing. Activists don't even care any longer. This is a well-run machine.

Hot Wheels id?

I heard sales of Hot Wheels id at Apple stores are way stronger than forecasts, as they roll out to more retailers ahead of Xmas could it be that Mattel finally has a legit hit toy on their hands for holiday '19?

We shouldn't let marketing run the business

I agree with 'don't let marketing run the business'. That has been the undoing of Mattel. I worked for Mattel for many years. After watching and studying the Barbie collector market, I came up with a great idea for Barbie Collector. Pitched it to the... —  read more

Mattel - pull it together!

Dear Lisa and Chris

Congratulations! By merging Barbie and Star Wars together to make the latest couture dolls, you’ve managed to create a product that both collector camps WON’T buy.

Rumor is the bond couldn't find any buyers and they had to pull it. Better listen to MGA.

Retail Service changes

Was Barbara forced out at the beginning of 4th quarter? No jobs posted. No advancement of reps. Just a reshuffling of the elite management group. How long will RSO team survive?
