Creating the Future of Play – Since the beginning, Mattel has taken an innovative and visionary approach to advancing play for children around the world. Our founders, Ruth and Elliot Handler; Herman Fisher and Irving Price, namesakes of Fisher-Price; Pleasant Rowland, founder of American Girl; and Reverend W.V. Awdry, creator of Thomas & Friends, all had one thing in common: they were creating the future of play long before we had the words to describe it. We are proud to continue their legacy today.
