Mattel is the world’s largest toy maker, selling its products in over 150 countries worldwide. The company started out in 1945 in El Segundo, California. It was named for two of its founders, Harold “Matt” Matson and Elliott Handler. Although it’s a multinational company today, Mattel’s origin story is a uniquely American one. Matson and Handler’s ancestors had fled anti-Semitism in Eastern Europe, immigrating to the United States to give their family a better life free from persecution. Because of that opportunity, their children would go on to change the world. Mattel’s very first hit toy came about in 1947—a ukulele called "Uke-A-Doodle." Later on in 1960, Mattel revolutionized the toy industry with its talking doll, “Chatty Cathy.” It continued to create hit toys from there on out. In the 1980s it even produced video games for the Nintendo systems! Mattel offers a wide range of items today, from dollhouse play sets to toy cars, and of course the famous Barbie doll.
