• Mattel and Hasbro Discussing Merger Again?

    The world's biggest toy makers are at it again as talks of a merger are dancing in the air again according to Reuters, Fortune, and The Detroit News. Apparently an offer was made by Hasbro to Mattel late last year and talks have been on and off since.

    Other than talk about a potential deal there isn't really much information, but if the two did merge we would see the largest toy maker on Earth, bringing the likes of Barbie and MLP under one flag.

    What do you guys who are more versed in Mattel's history think? Could a merge have effects on Hasbro brands and what do you think Hasbro would do with Mattel brands?

    Thanks for everyone who sent it in!
