A brief history of Mattel Creations/Mattel, Inc. of Los Angeles/El Segundo, California:
In 1945, Mattel Creations was founded by Harold Matson, Ruth Handler, and Elliot Handler and operated out of a garage. They specialized in picture frames, dollhouse furniture, and their first of many hit toys the “Uke-A-Doodle”. In 1948, Mattel Creations became Mattel, Inc. Mattel would go on to become the first sponsor of the Mickey Mouse Club, and manufacturer of the Magic 8-Ball.
In 1959, Mattel’s best-selling product of all time the Barbie came out, followed by the ever-popular Chatty Cathy in 1960. During the 1960s Mattel acquired several other companies to expand its portfolio of toys. They of course built upon their success of Barbie by putting out many versions of Barbie and her friends, as well as, accessories, pets, animals, houses, and cars. Building on the Chatty Cathy pull-string toy success they came out with the See n’ Say in 1965.
In 1968, Mattel put out its Hot Wheels line. In 1969, Mattel changed their Mattel Creations and the Mattel, Inc. Toymakers marketing brands to what we now know as just “Mattel” with their “red sun” logo.
Mattel would even acquire The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus from 1971 to 1973 when they sold it. They would go on to acquire/manufacture/ UNO, the He-Man and the Masters of the Universe line of action figures, comics, television shows, electronic games, Monster High, Ever After High, Enchantimals, Thomas & Friends, and brands like Fischer-Price (1993) and the Mega Brands to name a few.
