Our Social Impact

At Mattel, we believe in the power of play and the crucial link between play and a child's learning and development. Through play, children develop social, emotional and physical skills while they pretend, imagine and dream.

We believe that every child deserves the opportunity to play, and as such our social impact programs are focused on allowing more children access to play. Through our partners, funding, volunteers, brand campaigns and consumer activation, we are addressing the barriers to play by providing children time to play, a place to play, tools to play and an advocate for play in their lives.

As the experts in play, we feel this is the most powerful way we can affect the most change. Whether it's on the playground or at home, Mattel is there to ensure that children play.
