Its products include Barbie dolls, Hot Wheels and Matchbox cars, American Girl dolls, board games, and, in the early 1980s, video game consoles. It was founded in 1945 by Harold "Matt" Matson and Elliot Handler (hence the name "matt-el").

Mattel in Popular Culture

  • In the movie Toy Story, T-Rex (Rex), asks Buzz Lightyear where he is from. Buzz replies that he's from Star Command, and Rex responds, "Oh. Well, I'm from Mattel!" - then adds it was actually a smaller toy company purchased in a leveraged buyout, a reference to Mattel's corporate history – as well as the fact that Mattel produced the tie-in products for the movie.
  • In Toy Story 2. Tour Guide Barbie takes the other toys round the toy store – and, as she passed the Buzz Lightyear section, she says: "Mattel sorely underestimated the demand for Buzz Lightyear figures in 1995." This is a reference to the first movie's success catching Mattel short of stock that year.
  • In the movie Back to the Future: Part II, Mattel is the creator of the Hoverboard Marty Mcfly rides to escape Griff Tannens' gang at Hill Valley in the year 2015. One of the directors of the film claimed that Mattel Hoverboards existed and the crew had snagged a few for the movie, but due to parental concerns they were deemed unsafe for the market. Upon this statement thousands of calls went into Mattel demanding to purchase Hoverboards.
