This year, the Mattel group is rolling out the red carpet for its Christmas Festival. Its emblematic brands, unavoidable and always more surprising, will amaze children and adults at the foot of the Christmas tree. Iconic Barbie® and Fisher-Price® toys are invited to the festivities, as well as the four-wheelers and the spectacular Hot Wheels®, Matchbox® and Cars® racing circuits, and the indisputable UNOTM, ScrabbleTM and PictionnaryTM board games for intergenerational recreation; children's favorite worlds such as Sam the Fireman, The Patrol, Thomas and his friends, Polly Pocket or Harry Potter, but also brands aimed at Kidults with Mega Pokémon construction games and figurines from Masters of the Universe®, Jurassic World or Buzz Lightyear...
An event not to be missed, bringing together toy brands that have crossed generations: over 90 years for Fisher-Price®, over 60 years for Barbie® and over 50 years for Hot Wheels®. These are brands that have captured the hearts of families and that today maintain a strong attachment with their consumers. Much more than toys, they are now part of the culture and daily life of the French. Television, VOD platforms, derivative products, mobile games, digital content and soon the cinema with the long-awaited Barbie movie... Mattel continues its revolution and is now a powerful player in the entertainment industry.
For more than 90 years, the Fisher-Price brand has conquered the hearts of families by imagining ever more innovative and fun toys that help children blossom, marvel and awaken. The brand has found its place at every stage of baby's life: first steps, discovery of the environment, learning until school entry and more, thanks to innovative and constantly renewed products. Year after year, the brand continues to respond better and better to the needs of young children thanks to its unfailing knowledge of early childhood. This expertise is also due, for more than 60 years, to its secret weapon: the Play Lab, its research center dedicated to developing the best, most fun and most enriching toys possible, in direct contact with children. And to the delight of the whole family, Fisher-Price now offers toy lines featuring children's favorite heroes such as Thomas et ses Amis, which is making its comeback on TF1 with the series "Thomas et ses Amis: Tous En Avant!", or Gus the Minus Knight, also on TF1. Mattel is also developing collections of toys from the adventures of the heroic Sam the Fireman, which can be found on France TV but also on Netflix, Amazon Prime and TFou Max. Enough to imagine even more stories and share magical moments with your family for Christmas!
