We believe that all children should have the opportunity to play in enriching, exciting and stimulating environments – both indoor and outdoor. Unfortunately, we know not all children have access to play. That’s why the Mattel Children’s Foundation, the cornerstone of Mattel’s global philanthropic activities for more than three decades, and a variety of resources we devote to supporting our communities, are dedicated to breaking down the barriers to play for more than five million children in need each year. As the world’s largest toy company, we are the experts in play and have made strategic investments that leverage our brands and the people who bring them to life to create play opportunities for children all around the world. Through our social impact approach, Mattel utilizes the vast resources available within our company, including funding, employee volunteers, product donations and brand engagement, to make a difference in the lives of children in need. Whether our employees are jumping rope with one of our signature partners, Playworks, and the students of Grape Street Elementary in Los Angeles; donating Barbie® dolls, Hot Wheels® cars and American Girl® dolls to bring smiles to children confined to hospital beds; or supporting the global expansion of the Special Olympics Young Athletes Program™, we are actively working to increase access to quality play experiences for children in need.
