Hasbro to buy Mattel?

By Alex Wiggan

Less than a few days after news broke that Disney might buy 21st Century Fox, comes news that Hasbro might buy rival toy company, Mattel.

According to The Wall Street Journal, Hasbro Inc has made an approach to acquire Mattel Inc, potentially linking up two of the biggest toymakers in the United States.

At the time of writing, no deal has been made official, however, should a deal be reached, Hasbro would add properties such as Barbie, Monster High and Hot Wheels to it’s already impressive portfolio, which includes Star Wars, My Little Pony, Marvel Legends and Transformers.

More news if/when the deal becomes official.
